    Amazing wine and tons of fun. Menu changes all the time; Ruffian is doing things their way. But but but- if the cauliflower soup happens to be available, get it!

    Incredible selection of interesting wines from around the world, including Portugal, Hungry & Georgia. Talk to the friendly owners / sommeliers at the bar, and have your mind blown glass after glass.

    Great interesting wine list, tons from uncommon, old-world places - Georgia, Slovenia, etc. Knowledge, kind staff especially if there is a wait. Ventilation is poor - the back can be a bit smoky

    A true gem of a place! They are truly hospitable, sharing way beyond their incredible wine and food offerings. I love that they are generous storytellers and that they engage genuinely with guests.

    Fantastic atmosphere, fun and authentic and patient somms, and a wine menu that challenges and rewards all do a disservice to describing just how much of a gem this spot is.

    I had the chance to stop by while they were cooking, the lamb pie and beef brisket pies smelled amazing. Wine list very sophisticated

    This adorable wine bar doesn’t take reservations, but if you manage to score a seat between 5 and 7 p.m., you’ll get access to a “secret stash” of specially priced wine bottles and $5 snacks. Read more

    Sit by the front so that you can enjoy the smells of the cooking but beware, your clothes will flavored (wonderfully!) too.
