As a Kirklandite, this bar is within walking distance from my place. Which is a good thing because the drinks aren't small. In many places now, the cocktails are spendy and you still get cheated on the booze. Not at Vovina. Their menu is creative and comprehensive. Aside from the menu, if you tell the bartender what you like, and... More

It is a quiet bar in downtown Kirkland. It is very exclusive and a little spend he. But it is nice. All you got to do is get one drink under your belt and your good for the night at this place.

We walked in and the bartender greeted us and asked if were there for drinks or food. We said possibly both and could we see a menu. He told us to go find one on an empty table. He asked how our evening was going, we responded, "It's going well, how about yours?" To which he responded that he was... More

We love to swing by Vovina before going out to an event. The cubano sandwich, fries and a glass of champagne are just right for kicking off the night. In the summer sitting in the side by side wooden lounge chairs and watching people walk by is relaxing. Inside there are small nooks to hide away and one long bench... More

Great local bar on the back side of Lake St looking out towards the Marina. Excellent craft cocktails by Dave. Wonderful munchies. I especially love the Jalapenotini ... a spicy-hot vodka-based martini. Ask for the Habanero-infused vodka for a bit more zing. Excellent service and a great place to start or finish the night. Or, just stay and have dinner... More

Great place to sip some wine or have a martini. We always have a great time here with the staff. They are always fun. They have food also, but we have never eaten here.

Small little place in Kirkland. Big on taste and in price. Expensive martinis but they definitely taste good. The food is not too bad, not a place I would go expecting a meal, ok for small bites. Bar staff is knowledgeable. Cozy for couples. Paid parking after 5pm. Close to the water.

I recently reviewed VoVina but the review that appeared here should have been for another restaurant. VoVina is AWSOME. My favorite wine bar in Kirkland. Food is excellent and staff are great. The bartenders are top notch and VERY interesting to chat with. Can't say enough good things about this place. It is tops! MIGHT be best Martini's anywhere.

We love going to this place after viewing all of the cars at the Kirkland car show. It's great especially when the weather is hot and you need a place to sit down where is cool.

Very casual atmosphere with outdoor seating right on the parking lot but full of activity. Martini and wine on happy hour are a steal and there are good enough apps to take the place of dinner. The ahi tuna app is not on the happy hour but is really great. Get it anyway if you like ahi as it ha... More
