Stopped here after a long day of sightseeing, fantastic selection of wines from 8.95 a glass, food is of a good standard, cheese board with 3 cheeses, mango chutney & crostini 13 dollars, pitta bread with 3 dips 14 dollars, tasty, fresh food served with a smile. It reminds me of the Cavern in Liverpool, underground bar with a fab... More

This is a fun and relaxing bar that has an amazing drink menu literally a book to choices. Beers from around the world... beer flights, wine and cocktails. Something for everyone. There is a perfect corner booth in the back that we always try to get which is roomy and perfect for hanging out. The staff always seem to enjoy... More

Located underground near the Byward Market. Offers some interesting appetizers and wines. Entrées and wine flights could be improved upon.

We bought a Groupon to get their flights of beer at a discount. For those not familiar, a flight is a sampling of different beers in smaller (usually 4 to 6 oz.) glasses. They also serve flights of wine. While there, we enjoyed a nice meal. The menu is diverse, with many unique items. The atmosphere is relaxed and unrushed.... More

For food I had grabbed 12 oysters ( buck a shuck) and for dinner I had the rib eye and shrimp. It was absolutely amazing. Cooked to perfection. My wife... More

Great atmosphere! Old stone walls and cozy setting. Great deal on fresh oysters on Friday and Saturday nights ($1 each). This is a great place to taste and compare wines. There's a good selection of trios (or wine flights as they call them). It's a great way to appreciate the differences between the wines. There's also a selection of 16... More

My husband and I always find ourselves at the Vineyards Wine Bar & Bistro every weekend after a long and tiring week of school and work. The whole place has a great ambience to it, dark, isolated and alive at the same time. The food menu is limited however very delicious. We always get the cheese board and the calamari,... More

Went to have a drink while waiting for a table at the Keg. Had our appetizers here and a beverage. A lot of choice on the beverage side. A large selection of wines whiskey and beers. The bruschetta was absolutely fantastic and the Calamari was excellent. Quiet quaint and comfortable.
