The restaurant prides itself on its wines, which are sold at store prices. You can bring your own, with a corkage of $20 per bottle. The food was good and the Fois Gras starter was terrific. Recommended.

The food here is wonderful but on the pricey side for Auburn. Great selection of wines and very knowledgeable servers. Make reservations or plan to wait a long time as restaurant is very small.

Great atmosphere, nice selection of dining options, and an extensive wine list. Always something new and delicious on the menu. Make sure you check out the "wine cave!" We reserved the cave for a birthday gathering which was great fun.

Small restaurant, with excellent wine offering, fair pricing and okay service. Try the Bar Menu, but get there early as seating is limited and parking can be difficult to find.

This is a wine shop turned into a restaurant with recommended wine pairings. The wines are rather overpriced ranging from $30 to $225 per bottle. The $30 bottle was a substitute since they were out of many others and pretty low end. You can get...More

This is an excellent restaurant with a bar that specializes in wines. Although I would not recommend this restaurant for 12 year old and under, teens might have the pallet for the level of the foods offered here.
