“My favorite OC wine bar”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

I absolutely love Five Vines! I live around the corner and end up having after-work drinks here at least twice a week (but usually more, let's be honest). Their happy hour and daily specials just can't be beat.

You can tell that FV is family-owned because after spending an hour laughing and chatting with everyone, you start to wonder if you've actually been adopted by Randy and Suzy.

Everyone is so friendly and knowledgeable, and they seem personally dedicated to making sure you have a great time. The wine, beer, and food selection is absolutely superb -I always find something new and fresh to try.

“Great little place”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

This place has a very simple menu, but wonderful hosts and a quiet place to sit down and unwind with a friend.

“Those Gawd-DAMN CHEESE BALLS!!”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

Those Gawd-DAMN CHEESE BALLS!! Melts in your mouth. Warm, inviting and low key family manning the bar. Excellent decor. Loved the wine rack on the wall. Awesome 'pay it forward' chalkboard frames (Ask about it. Such a sweet idea.) Huge selection of wines for tastings, glass or by the bottle. Beer and Champagne, if you'd rather. I was able to get wifi easily, just had to authenticate with a web browser. The pricing was fair compared to other wine bars I've been to.

All and all, an easy spot to stop in before dinner or for the heck of it.

“Like It”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

Agree with another reviewer when that person said this is a nice place to just 'chill.' Nothing fast paced or too exciting, just a nice spot, in a nice place with decent folks, both serving and enjoying. The wine was good although the food offerings are limited. Still we will be back.
