This little place had good service, nice outdoor seating, and good wine! Enjoyed myself here. Small plates are also good.

Several times I have joined friends down at Swirl. If I knew more about wine, or was interested in learning about it, this review would probably be 'very good.' What I had, I enjoyed.
