Four of us enjoyed the patio at Rios for a birthday celebration. Service was excellent, just the right amount of interaction, knowledge, and connection. Food was wonderful just wished the tapas had come out one at a time. Great place for a leisurely dinner with...More

Small and intimate setting. The wine list looked good. We ordered a bowl of their chowder and the calamari. The waitress first brought bread to the table. No butter, no oil. Upon her return I asked for butter and was told they don't have butter...More

The wine bar is small, and the wine list could be longer, with some full bodied Chardonnay's, but the food (from small bites to full meals) is great, and you don't need reservations like at Ludwig's. Recommend this place!

A more limited but super menu and a great wine list, Rios typically serves those who were unaware of the absolute need for reservations downstairs. Fear Not. The food and wine are the same and superb.

This restaurants meets my expectations on fabulous/creative food, personable staff and lovely ambiance. It's my favorite place to stop for wine, appetizer and smiles!

Rios is above, and part of Ludwigs. It's an entirely charming place with limited seating so get there early. It primarily serves tapas and wine and you can get some really marvelous and tasty treats here. Highly recommend

The floor above Ludwig's Bistro is a wine/tapas bar run by the same folks. It was initially intended as a place to enjoy a glass of wine while waiting for a table downstairs, but many just enjoy the wine and tapas. It's one of the...More

I ate at the Tapas Bar above Ludvig's - because the restaurant was booked. It was delicious food, great service, lovely atmosphere overlooking the Sitka Sound and the wharf. I honestly think the view from the patio outside is better than the restaurant - because...More
