Wine Connection Tapas Bar & Bistro is a popular hub for groups wanting to share a casual dinner, late night drinks and events. With 350 seats both indoor and al fresco, truly this is a perfect place for a great bond and great drinks ahead.
When my friends are looking for a good place for affordable wine and tapas, wine connection will definitely come to mind. On average, a bottle of wine can go from 30 plus to 50 plus based on your preference. I usually go for the mid range ones. That night when I was out with my husband, we ordered the on promotion sparkling wine which comes with two free tapas and in total only costs 40 bucks. We also ordered a Mediterranean platter to share. All in all a good experience.
The downside of this place is that they play club-loudness music after a certain time (about 10 or 10.30pm), which makes it impossible to make conversation. Our friends were literally shouting to try to be heard by each other. We asked a few times if the music could be turned down just a little, since this is a sit down wine bar after all and not a dance club, but the manager refused, saying that if the music was softer it would not be nice. After a while we gave up and left. Don't think we will be going there again Soon...
I'm a regular at your place but what happened last night is a total turn off for me, besides the food (very cold potato wedges and my favorite pork ribs was not as nice as before ). I was given the wrong credit card when I settled the bill. I did remember to check before i signed the bill and it was really charged under my card but given a wrong credit card. Sometimes mistakes happened so I"m still trying to be understanding but when i did called the outlet i didn't expect that the staff will talk to me unprofessionally, a simple sorry will change everything, but instead he just replied "Oh we are not here last night its not our fault its the night staff on duty's fault etc etc..(too many excuses) so when do u plan to take your card?" after all the trouble that they have caused (not only to me but to the owner of the other card too) no apology as if nothing happened, i can really say that the staffs were not well trained and not courteous enough to handle this kind of situation. Very very disappointed.
Been coming here on a regular basis for over 3 years. The food is, by and large, great and the wine is reasonable and varied.
But the service seems to get worse every time. God forbid, if you have to split a bill, get extra tables or request for a minor change in a dish you ordered - be prepared for a veto that president Obama would be proud of. Have been in some argument or the other the past 3 times I've been here.
Their cheese platter used to have grapes, a generous service of crunchy vegetables and some flexibility with the cheese selection. Now the grapes are gone, you get literally 1 carrot and celery slice, cheese portions are tiny and seem to be leftovers from cold storage. So avoid ordering this.
I really love this place and hope they can work on this... hard to recommend otherwise.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
