Great place to go or a late night drink and chocolate platter. Very solid wine by the glass.

3. We had a great time here! I came with a group of 6, and we were served by one of the owners, who was super helpful. He offered to put together cheese / meat / chocolate platters to go well with the wine we had chosen, and everything was delicious. It's a great place to celebrate with a group.

I love a good tempranillo, and they’ve got a nice one by the glass. I’m sad that I didn’t ask for the label or vintage...but after three glasses, I don’t think I had enough of my wits about me to do so ;)

ladies night

Came here for the ladies night special. Really fun, but I guess we were expecting it to be more than just a chocolate shot and a strawberry. Those things are fun, but most ladies’ nights in the city have 50% off drink specials. I’d much rather have that.

Outstanding from start to finish. My server for the evening was attentive, but didn’t hover. It took me a while to order because everything on the menu looked so delicious, but she gave me some great recommendations. I went with the meze tasting with the choice of three items (white chocolate & celery roote mousse, roasted French brie crouton, and the plum duck rilette). All three were amazing, but the white chocolate celery mousse impressed me the most. I was actually sad when I finished it. For my entree (or “Bigger Bites,” as the menu calls it), I had the braised beef short rib, which featured a dark chocolate sauce. Um, wow. I pretty much licked my plate clean. Rounding out the night, I had the chocolate fondue paired with a sweet wine flight. My favorite of the fondue dippers was the pound cake, which soaked up all the chocolate like a sponge, which then exploded in my mouth when I took a bite. Delicious. My ice Riesling was also fantastic. I will definitely be coming back so that I can try all of the other amazing looking things on the menu!
