Pretty good concept allows you to sample many different kinds of wine that you might not otherwise try. With small portions you can taste many bottles in one evening. The Cabernet and Merlot section is equal in size to the Spain and Italian section and the "interesting red section". So there's lots of variety but limited selection in each category.... More

The concept of this wine bar is brilliant to say the very least❗In our travels in major cities we have not come across this very unique concept. I cannot say enough times that this concept of Wine & Bistro is Brilliant. I rated the food excellent because I could actually order a salad with protein at 12:00am, which I did,... More

Tastings is a one-of-a-kind wine bar offering new levels of experience to everyone from the novice to the sommelier. I want Tastings to open in California. It's a phenomenal experience. I love wine flights but don't always know what to pick. I'm always interested in finding wines that I like. Tastings has over 200 wines and notes on each wine.... More

The servers are all so helpful. We went to Tastings after a symphony performance. We sat at the bar next to food prep area. Everything smelled so good. We are actually headed here again soon. My mother loved the wines. I really liked the appetizers, especially the cheese plate.

Thank you for stopping in after your visit to the Symphony - we enjoy our partnership with the ISO and are fortunate enough to have many visitors stop in before and after shows. We certainly look forward to your next visit and appreciate your kind words about our team. They certainly love what they do and we couldn't do it... More

Came in for some wine and chocolate cake after dinner. The place was packed, but the host was very accommodating and had us a place to sit quickly after selecting our first wine. For us, the Amarone and Stags Leap were our favorites.

Was in town for one night, and stumbled on this place after passing all the predictable chain restaurants downtown. The wine is the focus here, and the list has some interesting choices, well beyond the normal selection at similar places. Menu is mostly small plates - the small pizza was good, if a little dry. Also had a sampler plate,... More

We need central place to let people meet and come and go as needed. The staff was wonderful, no problem splitting or keep serval tabs going. Yes its a wine place but also have a full bar and beer. Something for everyone.
