We had a very pleasant experience at the Grape, met the owner, good wine, beer, appetizers and service. Nice warm place on a cold night. Came back a second time at 9:35 pm and the server wouldn't couldn't prepare any food. So we left. I get people want to go home, but no attempt at accommodation was made. It's one... More

Had a delicious big red and heard some good music. People were friendly and welcoming, which made A Grape In The Fog a great place to visit.

Rockaway Beach in Pacifica holds one of the Bay Area's best wine bars, just steps from the ocean. They have a wide selection of wine, of course, but I enjoy the food as well. I've often visited just for their chocolate cake sent from heaven above! If you time it right, you can see a musical act or an artist's... More

went in on 80's night and although the singer sang 60's music (elvis mostly) it was great - he clearly liked that era more :) new Sushi place opposite provided the meal afterwards

Passed by this place many times without realizing they serve food! Here is a wine bar with great "small dishes" menu and steps from the beach. Love! Call and check the schedule for their hours and live music.

Immediately upon reading the name of this wine bar on the sign on Highway 1 -- I knew I had to go there. It is tucked into a small street at Rockaway --warm, cordial and quiet during happy hour. There is music and food -- along with local art, stories and folk. One of my favorite happy hour places!

I love going to A Grape in the Fog for their music & other events. Trivia Night is the 2nd Tuesday each month. "Quiz Mistress" Sandy always has a fun selection of questions, and the atmosphere is festive. They have an eclectic selection of wines, so don't go in expecting to find the standards you find at every other place.... More

A nice place to visit to have a glass of wine and a snack. Very laid back and social environment. Nice patio area, too, on the off chance that the weather is warm!

Not sure what the fuss is about. They advertise $1 off beer for happy hour, then they're out of 3 of the 5 beers on the menu. Can't comment on the food as we didn't order any, just stopped in for a brief happy hour on 2 occasions during our stay. A member of our party is a high end... More

The lady was friendly and made me feel welcome. The acoustics were unbearable...they had a guitar/singer, but the walls were not prepared for this...What are they thinking?? My date and I departed, never to return.
