Bar Vino gets crowded. Why? Because it is simply great. Great wine, hence the name, cosy spot, and the food is terrific. A little urban charm in a small ski town -- this is the gem of North Creek. Truly. Probably not where I would choose to take the kids apres ski as it is a small plates place, but... More

There is something for everybody at barvino. It is prinarily a wine and small plates bar, although they also have a good selection of craft beers and a couple ciders. I went with two friends for dinner and were comfortably full after ordering 5 small plates which we shared. The glass options for wine are plentiful and the bottle prices... More

I have been here a time or two being that I live in North Creek and just love barVino! Everything that comes out of the kitchen is mouth watering yummy! You won't be disappointed with the food! And the beer and wine options are plentiful with an ever changing selection. You must stop by summer or winter and experience it... More

The most important thing to know about Bar Vino is probably that they DO NOT take reservations. Our arrival 30 minutes after their 5 o’clock opening saw our party of four promptly seated at two tables that they pushed together for us. There were now about a dozen people seated at either the bar or tables on the last meteorological... More

We went based on reviews on this site. Had great expectations but we we're let down. The service was poor at best after we ordered our food the waitress came over and said our food should be up soon. No problem about 20 minutes after that that same waitress came over and said out food should be up soon. Shortly... More

Went here based on the other reviews and we were not disappointed. I wish I knew how to prepare those brussel sprouts as my husband and I stopped talking to be able to eat them faster. I wish that I had known that there was live music one night a week, although it seemed to be much more crowded that... More

North Creek is a little foodie town. BarVino is a surprisingly good dinner spot for a town this size. We had a couple of small plate that were both very fresh and well seasoned. The waiter was smart and attentive. Wine list is excellent. Would definitely return!

A tapas style menu. Excellent mussels and fries. Very good salad to start. I liked the draft beer selection. Not everyone will like the menu style but the preparation was superb.
