Wine Connection's cheese bar offers 40 types of matured farm cheeses from Europe. Try the classics such as Brie de Meaux and Roquefort from France, as well as Parmiggiano Reggiano from Italy. Those looking to fill up their tummies can opt for the cold cut platters, homemade tartines and salads.
Wine connection offers a cellar full of wine choices for customers to choose from at lowered prices. You could buy the bottles back home for your future's use or you could buy and open the bottle on the spot and have a sip with your associates. This place can get really really crowded during peak hours so you will be lucky if you can even dine in without waiting too long. In addition, you could select a cheese or a fruit platter or a mixture of both as this place offers a variety of fermented cheese to go with your wine. For the more pungent cheeses, go for the goat's cheese. As what they say for cheese, the stinkier, the more tasty and better it is!
Never got to try the food as the attitude we got from the chef and manager was so incredibly rude, over a minor change in the order, that we cancelled the order and left. Complete refusal to accommodate their customers, with rudeness and snarkiness to boot. No wonder the place is empty...
Highly recommend this place for the masochist. Unbelievably and consistently rude staff, chef, executive chef supervised by an impotent manager. When ordering a $20 salad, the amount of grief and resistance created by a change in salad dressing due to a honey allergy was only matched by the chef's in-your-face rudeness and obnoxiousness. This had happened once before and the manager had assured me was an oversight never to be repeated. Alas, one month later, it happened again but this time with heightened animosity as the chef was offended that his creation (a SALAD) was not being respected 'as is'. Allow me to share, that both times we were the sole customers in the restaurant for lunch as we work in the area. How dare a customer have an opinion over what he or she would like to consume?!? GHASTLY service.
This wine bar is my staple. The wine list is extensive and extremely reasonable, and the platters that they do are amazing. Cheese, olives, cold cuts and lots of other delicious items that make up an excellent antepasto (however it's definitely more than enough to be a full meal raher than an appetiser). Great place to people watch and go with friends to have a drink. The service used to be impeccable but has dropped a bit recently, so hopefully that improves shortly. Still a great place to go though.
