Description: The atmosphere is beautiful and intriguing at the same time - splashes of unique colors and art engulf the interior to bring the patrons into a surrounding unlike any other. Our menu is unique in almost every way and we strive to surprise every customer on what their palette might enjoy while trying their next glass of wine. Our knowledgeable staff is always available for anyone with questions about wine typologies or even to just talk "shop" about our wine selection. One of the most unique experiences we offer to our guest is the option to use our self-serve Italian made Enomatics. We offer a selection of 48 wines on these tasting machines that can be dispensed at the correct temperature directly to customers through the use of a microchip card. Every wine on the system can be dispensed in 1.5oz, 3oz, or 6oz pours - giving our guests the chance to taste as many wines as they like without having to look at a single menu. Our goal is to help everyone experience the various types of wine from around the world and to never make anyone feel that you have to have a degree in enology to enjoy a great glass of wine.

We were in Lubbock for parents weekend. We really enjoyed the restaurant. All of the steaks were cooked perfect and the Duck special was very good. The wine selection is huge and the service was good. We would go back.

The wine selection is poor quality for the price, the food isn't that interesting or just heavy and gut busting. And it is always noisy and crowded. We've tried this place twice and both times it wasn't a very pleasant experience. I guess people just love getting their wine by the glass from a dispenser.

We heard of the new location and that they had a good menu so decided to stop for brunch. Atmosphere is different but pleasant. Service was friendly and menu has a varied choice of items. We had a good relaxing brunch I had the Southwest Omelette and my spouse had the eggs Benedict. A live band was playing some soft music in the background. The restaurant has two levels for seating. There is a large walled outdoor patio which looked comfortable. A free parking lot is available but no valet.

You absolutely must try the fondue! It's excellent! We ordered all 3 cheese fondues (our favorite was the gouda) and chicken, steak, sausage, and veggies to dip in it. It was a little pricey, but completely worth it! We split that among 3 adults and 2 kids. They bring you delicious bread to dip as well. Dinner was delicious, but in my opinion the BEST PART was the dessert fondue! We ordered the Candy Bar fondue with marshmallows and strawberries, and the also brought us angle food cake squares. I could NOT get enough of that chocolate fondue. Our total bill was around $150 (this did however include a glass of wine), so it's definitely not something we will do often, but as a special treat it was totally worth it. The atmosphere was very classy and hip. I loved the live entertainment. This really is a must if you've never been before! Great service guys, we loved it!

My husband brought me here as a surprise for a dinner date. I found this restaurant to have a mixture of excellent and average menu options. The wine list is quite extensive and excellent. We started our meal with the international wine platter which was good but disappointing at the same time. While their house-made Boursin was delicious, the rest of the selection on the plate was far from gourmet consisting of smoked gouda, pepper jack and white cheddar cheeses. With a small selection of meat, the deal breaker was with the scattering of trail mix as a finishing touch. We both ordered different versions of steaks which were cooked to our liking and enjoyed very much. For the dessert, we went with the chocolate cake paired with a glass of port. The cake was average while the port was excellent. We would come back again for the wine and try out their selection of International Specialties entrees.
