It was a Monday night and the crowd was steady. I ate at the bar, but the dining room was beautiful. I will definitely be back for the scallops. The wine pour seamed small for the money is the only negative. I would suggest buying a bottle and paying the $10 corkage fee!

Friends from out of town met a friend who lives in Greenville today for a birthday lunch at Northampton and what a treat! The atmosphere was so relaxed, the food was wonderful and the service was excellent. I have left the best for last, the wine selection was outstanding, very reasonable and our server was very knowledgeable. All in all,... More

We celebrated my wife's birthday with dinner at Northampton Wine Cafe. Cafe is a bit of a misnomer if you are having dinner. The building is divided into a wine/cheese store with bar- a cafe, which connects with a separate fine dining room. We were seated promptly, and the service was excellent. Our waitress was a delight. The menu not... More

I really want to love this place. The atmosphere is so cool in an old warehouse. The charm of the (what could be so fantastic) is dappened by a couple things. First, the place needs background music. It is so quiet in there and the music will help. The service in the wine bar is AWEFUL! And most recently the... More

We live around the corner from Northampton Wine Cafe and enjoy the Saturday Chefs lunch specials. The cafe is usually very crowded but the ambiance is great. You can also sit on the terrace if the weather cooperates. On Saturdays, you have four selections on the menu which change weekly. The service is impeccable and the food is always good.... More

We wanted a small, casual meal so we chose the bar. The mussels were excellent (served with complimentary bread), the lump crab "burger" was equally good. Pleasant service by the bartender who also gave us a mini tour of the extensive wine shelves. A bit pricey but we enjoyed it.

We've always had great tasting food here. We stopped for a quick bite at the bar. I had shrimp tacos - very tasty. My wife had beef turnovers - very flaky crust and excellent taste. We will keep coming back.

Recent dinner at Northampton and we loved it. One on a rainy Monday night so the restaurant was not busy. We picked a great bottle of wine in the store at a fair price and enjoyed a terrific meal. Food was great with an interesting menu. If you like wine with your food this is a really good place since... More

This was my first time to dine here. The food is excellent. I would definitely get a bottle of wine instead of by the glass. Glass pours are small. Try the chili seafood appetizer. It is flash fried and delicious. Next time we may just visit the bar area. It is busy in the early evenings and has a fun... More

Very elegant and intimate. Exceptional menu in the European style. With wine shop next door, one of most extensive wine lists in town. Courteous and helpful staff. Perfect place to impress a client or please a date.

Description
The type of cuisine varies from week to week, but mostly it's comprised of Napa/Sonoma Valley California type of food. This restaurant might want to remain unlisted on TripAdvisor, but I thought it merited singing their praises. The food is fabulous, gourmet style, James Beard would be proud. This is a place you go when you want to enjoy a glass of wine, learn about the wine and actually taste food, not have bland gargantuan size meals. It can be pricey if you go for dinner, but the inexpensive way to go is to go on a Saturday, eat from the lunch menu or go early on a Friday eat in the bar area and enjoy food off the menu. There is also relaxing outdoor seating which is a wonderful place to eat and meet after work. I highly recommend looking into this restaurant.
