Went for the "Summer Sips" wine tasting. Excellent evening, tasted 6/7 different wines from different regions, accompanied by a cheese plate with selection of cheeses representing the wine regions. Very knowledgeable host who explained the different wines and how they are made.

I haven't been back here in 3 years as I live overseas but my sister and her husband are regulars and come almost every week. The atmosphere and service is great and friendly.

Good food but extremely over priced for what you get. Nice atmosphere. It's one of those "hipster" restaurants that is cool but not great food.

Menu was new and different. Outdoor seating was very relaxing. Our food was very good and prices were good. I will look forward to going back when I am in Tempe again.
