Starting with wine tasting was a good idea, as we could relax and then decide which wine we should continue drinking at lunch. We were in the cellar for lunch, plenty of natural light and space between tables. We ordered the pesto pumpkin feta pine nuts pizza to share, followed by the mushroom entre and eggplant main. Both dishes had middle eastern touches, both were delicious!

They made me wait until 2:15pm and only after I came and asked for the table for the 2nd time. Another couple arrived after me and was given a table before me, so I don’t understand how this reservation works. I expect a table if I had made a reservation. I don’t think I will be coming back.

There were times that the service was slow - in that it took too long in between two wines being tasted. There were also times when it was too quick in between glasses so some of my companions had to quickly gulp down what remained of the previous serving. This could have been due to how busy the day was, the speed of service wasn't too big of an issue but it was enough that my companions complained a little. One of my companions also wasn't able to hear any of the wine descriptions at all. The ambient noise drowned out our server's voice which he couldn't hear from the end of our table.

Please not when you buy wines you're still charged for the tasting which is $10 each so already very expensive and the wines aren't the cheapest. Great service with friendly staff. Very busy and no social distancing considering covid-19.
