My husband and I have NEVER left there disappointed. The service is terrific, the food delicious and exciting, and the wine always wonderful. IT IS OUR Date restaurant once a month. Make sure to ask the waitstaff their opinion on what wines to order (by...More

A warm, inviting neighborhood wine bar/bistro, Grapes is great both for a glass of wine and appetizer and a casual dinner. The servers are knowledgeable about the wine and friendly. The food is not particularly vegan-friendly (cream is present in many dishes), but the kitchen...More

This was my second visit at Grapes and I left disappointed. The setting is charming and when the weather is nice, it is enjoyable to eat outside. This time, I ordered the bouillabaisse. It was good but the portion was much too small. I know...More

Nice layout and a very friendly atmosphere. Susanne took care of us as we started with some of their special Ojai 2015 Grenache - medium bodied with nice fruitiness. We had their foie gras and wild mushroom flatbread plates for starters, then the pork belly...More

Friends decided to try this place after work. Cute place, but we won't go back, primarily due to the prices. The server was fantastic. We really had great service. She explained the different wines to perfection. But it just wasn't worth the price. $16 for...More

Grapes Wine Bar serves technically well-made food in a nice, almost European ambiance. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. They know their wines and food well. The wines on the board are slightly too expensive, but the wines in the menu are reasonably priced....More

Grapes Winr Bar was recommended the night before by a couple we meet at another restaurant. We had a very enjoyable evening. All of the items we ordered were delicious. The servings are larger than an appetizer but smaller than an entree. They are really...More

The bartenders are wine connoisieurs! They are super at recommending new and exciting wines to try. I didn't give it a 5 star only because I find that sometimes they recommend a very pricy wine (my fault for not asking) and we got the bill...More

Recently my husband and I joined friends at Grapes, an out-of-the-way care/bar/restaurant that's been in Annapolis for years but we've somehow missed. We visited days after a two-week visit to Italy. Still aglow from our trip, we found Grapes strongly reminiscent of the lovely little...More

I'm not the owner, just a reviewer. I don't know if they cater but if I remember correctly they do on site private parties. You get the whole place to yourself
