    Bigsby’s was a very cute spot for a evening out! There was live music (it was a Friday night) so it was a tad loud. Thankfully we got seated outside. The service was great as well. The portion sizes are our only critique- a little small for the price!

    I was so excited to try this place. But there was so many negatives, I don’t even know where to start. First thing we noticed was our waitress. I get it, we all don’t like our jobs and we all have tough days, but the effort still needs to be there. She checked on us maybe twice, told us nothing about the wines each time she brought them. On to the wines. We paid extra to have the reserve flights, and every wine we tasted kept getting worse. The only wine we finished was the brut. The Rosè of Grenache tasted and smelled like old cigarette smoke, no fruit at all. The Pinot Noir, Malbec, and Cabernet Sauv all were so acidic and so alcohol forward on the nose and palette (Maybe because they were all 14% and up alcohol!) My husband and I kept swirling thinking they all just needed to breathe- nope. We couldn’t even try anymore. All the glasses were left full. Again, if someone was checking on us maybe they would’ve noticed. The charcuterie- Fatty prosciutto, warm salami and chorizo, just not good. Also left that. After about 25 minutes waiting for a check, with full wines on our table desperately wanting to get out of there to try and salvage our night, our waitress was still no where to be found. Eventually my husband just went up to the bartender to ask for our check. Bartender came over with our check and asked how everything was (the only one who asked.) and we politely told him we didn’t care for any of the wines (as he could see from all of them sitting there.) so he did very nicely waive one of our tasting fees. Overall, this place is a let down. The space is amazing, but that doesn’t go far when you don’t have good wines. Won’t be back.

    Servers, Jen and Jessica, were outstanding! Knowledgeable, kind, and around when we needed, but not hovering. Food was stellar again today! We had Duck Confit Nachos with bacon... yummy! Wine was excellent as always, with Reserve Rose' and Cab Franc being our choices! Really appreciate these guys!!

    We made a reservation and when we got there we were informed that the kitchen was closed. We asked if they had some food, we wanted just some cheese, something simple. We were given some sort of trail mix. I do not understand because even when you book, they are offering the cheese and wine tasting experience. I pick a wine, and they didn't have it (remember, this is a "winery") I was "offered" a second white. When I asked more information the girl, which by the way, was the worse of our experience, didn't know exactly what type of wine it was. on her only real interaction, she mentioned the kitchen was closed because of a situation with a kitchen employee. I understand there are emergencies; what I don't get is there was a party and they were eating. They could have easily picked up the phone and say we will not serve more people or we are just tired, Do not recommend.

    Cute winery in a neighborhood that is undergoing revitalization. Originally had us seated on a couch / chairs with a trunk coffee table in between that we felt would be better suited for cocktails only. They were happy to reseat us. Staff was friendly and had good service. Food was good but felt it needed a little more flavor. Luckily they provided us with several different hot sauces which helped add a little kick. Tried several different cocktails all of which were good. Would go back and would recommend.

    Had a great brunch experience. Was a little surprised at how slow it was on a Saturday at noon, but not complaining :). Service staff was fantastic, kudos. Everything we ate and drank was delicious. Was a bit of a shock when the total bill came though, a bit pricey. We’d go back, but probably moreso for a special occasion in the future. My fiancé and our group really liked the “feel” of the place. Enjoyable, great experience, just a bit pricey we all felt like.

    Great spot for Saturday morning brunch. Went early, place was chill, great ambiance! Food was awesome, french press coffee and bloody's also great. Although there weren't many people there, service was slow, but that is the norm these days right. Most server's doing a lot more than ever, so as the new norm, patience is required. But well worth it, great experience.
