If you like wine, you need to check out WineDown! You can explore so many varieties of high quality wine while getting expert assistance from knowledgeable staff. Plus, the environment is intimate and social. Perfect to chat about wines and whatever! Don't miss out on the great fresh sandwiches, cheese platters and desserts! Love it!

We were on our way home when we found this place. There are several good stops along the street and this is the one we picked. It was great loved the flight and the sandwich hit the spot, but the waitress was over the top. I highly recommend this place.

Wine Down is a lovely, quaint bar with a nice beverage selection and great food. It gives you that small town comfort with big city style. Try their $5 Happy hour specials.

This has been a favorite spot for the past five years. It's classy yet welcoming, with an attentive staff, good wines and cocktails at reasonable, although not cheap, prices, and a great atmosphere for conversation.
