It was girls night out so we stopped in to Secco for appetizers and wine prior to heading out. Our server was lovely and knew her wines better than anyone I️ have ever had (outside of a sommelier at 5-Star restaurants). Her knowledge and description...More

Hi Rebecca. Sorry for the confusion. Thursday was unusually busy due to Valentines week so we were on a wait even for the bar that night. The incident at the door was an honest mistake--our GM locked the door out of habit and immediately realized...More

The Secco Wine Bar provides a lively spot for drinks and snacks before or after dinner. The bar tends to fill up on weekends with a very lively crowd. If you can get a seat, try the marinated olive appetizer for a different taste treat.
