Great service, Matt helped us out with everything and suggested their pizza, best pizza I've had in a very long time. I'll be going back

we enjoyed the wine & cheeseboard. They added gratuity to the bill & it seemed high. I know it was based off of regular cost & not the groupon price but for a party of 3, we should decide how much tip to leave. They were busy but service was poor, found a table & stacked up the dirty dishes but no one cleared them. Would not have left that much tip for no service!

The only thing we didn't like is that we sat at a table but had to go up to the bar to order our food. We would expect to order from the bar if we sat at the bar. The service was really good before the restaurant got busy, but once it did the servers were spread too thin.

Delicious champagne and wine, and service was ok, but note that gratuity of 18% is automatically charged to you based on groupon "value", whether you get good service or not.

A little expensive for what you get.

Sundays has a live band beginning @ 2PM, but many people arrive @ 12PM to get good seats near the band. There is plenty of additional seating that you can still hear the band. You may also want to get the fruit, cheese, and bread/cracker plate from Café Merlot - makes a great afternoon snack.

From Our Editors

At Wine Steals, a casual wine bar and market the bar’s barrels and shelves are filled with more than 40 international wines. The executive chef, a former US Navy galley cook, arranges artisanal meat and cheese boards and crafts wine-themed international flavor combinations that either spread onto pizzas or curl up into sandwiches. For example, the pinot noir combo mixes Italian flavors of prosciutto, asiago, mozzarella, and white truffle oil.

Servers suggest ideal pairings to novice and experienced oenophiles as they pass drinks and plates across a 14-seat stone bar topped with European-style zinc. Above the bar, a chalkboard framed by wine barrels lists 40 vintages available by the half glass, glass, or bottle. Throughout the space, plush couches and chairs gather around wine barrels with wooden tabletops for more intimate gatherings or heated staring-contest championships. Wine Steals’ casual approach to wine and eclectic food has earned it the title of Best Wine Bar in the San Diego Union-Tribune's 2012 readers' poll.
