I wouldn't pay much credence to the older "bad" reviews on this page. Monterey Street Wine (Vintage 1255) has gone thru a few ownership changes in the past few years, most recently reverting to the original owner John Stipicivich and his partner Donna Wolfe.

No wonder why this place was empty on a weekend afternoon! That should have been my first clue to turn around and run the other way... but I'll admit, I was lured in by the nice cheese selection. We sat at the bar to do some wine tasting with our cheese selection and that's where it all went wrong. The... More

These people were too stuck up to actually cater to us. They asked us to leave when we walked in at 7:05pm because their license "didn't allow them to serve after 7pm."
