This is a real laid back place for enjoying wine and a small plate. The owner patiently helps you identify wines that soothe your taste buds and your wallet. Just drop in and hang out.

Made a reservation on line for Friday nite at 9:15. It was confirmed. When our party of 4 arrived the place was empty and the woman at the bar said the kitchen was closed. She appeared to care less. I live in downtown Richmond. Won't...More

Very nice wine selection. Attentive but not intrusive staff. The night we were there they happened to have live jazz. Best of all, they responded and readily accommodated requests for gluten free dishes. Thee food was excellent. I regret not having visited before now.

We wandered across this little wine bar and stopped in. The service was good with an average selection of wines by the glass and bottle. The wine was very good and we also shared a spinach tortilla which was better than expected.

Good wine. Great food. Excellent service. Best item we ordered was potatoes bravas. Delicious. Accidently misread our groupon and the server helped us out even though she didn't have to. Will come again :)

First Tapas experience for us. Waitress, Genet, was pleasant, patient, and informative. Food was delicious. We had the garlic shrimp, pancetta tortilla, empanadas and shrimp brochettes. Small plate enough to share. Every dish came from kitchen piping hot. We ordered 2 items at a time....More

I'm kind of on the fence between 3 stars and 4 stars. C'est Le Vin came so close on so many things, but didn't really nail any of them. Ambiance: Love the decorative ceiling. Love the rotating art gallery. The table cloths are in desperate...More
