We've been here for dinner and a light snack.. the food is delicious and the staff is fun and they know a lot about wine. They don't try to sell you the most expensive bottle, they guide you to what you like.

Eveything was delicious. The building is an old barn and it is lovely. The atmospehere was lively but relaxing. When we left at... More

Went there with girlfriends for a "catching up" session and had the best time. Our server was engaging and the food was delicious and well priced. This is a must visit if you are new to the area. The new owners have made a great new name for themselves, and it's so much better than it was before in every... More

This is our 2nd trip back to OVWB for an anniversary. We managed to hit Happy Hour which was a happy accident. Although we didn't order any of the HH food choices, we had a nice bottle of cava.

Friendly wine bar in Kennebunk with a great wine list, and good tapas. It's a bit loud inside, which was fine with us, but might be an issue for some.

Start with a great bramble cocktail and then order from a small but perfectly formed menu of classics with a twist. Great choice of local oysters served on the half shell, great crab cakes, lovely pork main and great flatbreads. A take on sticky toffee is forgettable. Vibrate service and good atmosphere and a great wine list.

Loved the atmosphere and server! In addition the Apple crisp was lovely! My husband had wished for chop sticks with his tuna, but all good!

We enjoyed a tasty, crisp based pizza and a good glass of wine. Great atmosphere and probably most of all we loved sitting around the fire pit.
