The concept is great, but the overall execution is poor. First of all, I will commend the service. The host was friendly and attentive. However, the rest of the evening was underwhelming. There is a wide selection of wines, but not as many as I would have expected. It will disappoint anyone who already has narrowed their preference, e.g., Cab Franc in US (not too many options) ... or Sauv Blanc from NZ. The pours should be half as small and half as expensive. The pours are too large to try a wide selection, and with typical cost of $12-$20, tough on the pocket book if you really do want to taste a selection. Additionally, the space is very cramped and difficult to sit comfortably given the people at the table and the walk area. Filled with tourists, so don't expect this to be a local hangout.
