    We arrived early for brunch on a Sunday. We were a big group, but the place was empty. Food and drinks still took a while to come out, and several orders were wrong. But the things we received were quite good. Have also dined there in the evening, and the service was quite good.

    The servers knew their products (wine) and also knew the history of the building - located in RiNo - an old rock crushing place, still in quite the original shape, but updated. The food was excellent, and service great.

    Scheduled a reservation for drinks and a light dinner. Was disappointed to be sat a a very low couch with a small coffee table. This is not a comfortable sitting arrangement when you are trying to eat. Although I appreciate that most places are short-staffed, they had one waitress/hostess, sitting people and waiting on over 15 tables. This made it extremely time-consuming to order anything. I saw a few other employees either sitting at the bar or not really helping that could have made all customer’s experiences better. The only food we did order was the Charcuterie Board (for $32). Now I have never been scared to pay for what is essentially meats and cheeses, however the prosciutto was grey, we got like a teaspoon of pate and like 3 pickle slices. Again, I don’t mind paying a bit more for charcuterie but $32 for a sad looking charcuterie board seems excessive considering the quality of what they were offering. For a chill wine bar, the music was so loud it made it difficult to hear my husband sitting next to me. Overall we left feeling disappointed and will likely never return.

    Bigsby’s was a very cute spot for a evening out! There was live music (it was a Friday night) so it was a tad loud. Thankfully we got seated outside. The service was great as well. The portion sizes are our only critique- a little small for the price!

    I was so excited to try this place. But there was so many negatives, I don’t even know where to start. First thing we noticed was our waitress. I get it, we all don’t like our jobs and we all have tough days, but the effort still needs to be there. She checked on us maybe twice, told us nothing about the wines each time she brought them. On to the wines. We paid extra to have the reserve flights, and every wine we tasted kept getting worse. The only wine we finished was the brut. The Rosè of Grenache tasted and smelled like old cigarette smoke, no fruit at all. The Pinot Noir, Malbec, and Cabernet Sauv all were so acidic and so alcohol forward on the nose and palette (Maybe because they were all 14% and up alcohol!) My husband and I kept swirling thinking they all just needed to breathe- nope. We couldn’t even try anymore. All the glasses were left full. Again, if someone was checking on us maybe they would’ve noticed. The charcuterie- Fatty prosciutto, warm salami and chorizo, just not good. Also left that. After about 25 minutes waiting for a check, with full wines on our table desperately wanting to get out of there to try and salvage our night, our waitress was still no where to be found. Eventually my husband just went up to the bartender to ask for our check. Bartender came over with our check and asked how everything was (the only one who asked.) and we politely told him we didn’t care for any of the wines (as he could see from all of them sitting there.) so he did very nicely waive one of our tasting fees. Overall, this place is a let down. The space is amazing, but that doesn’t go far when you don’t have good wines. Won’t be back.

Wine was excellent as always, with Reserve Rose' and Cab Franc being our choices! Really appreciate these guys!!

    We made a reservation and when we got there we were informed that the kitchen was closed. We asked if they had some food, we wanted just some cheese, something simple. We were given some sort of trail mix. I do not understand because even when you book, they are offering the cheese and wine tasting experience. I pick a wine, and they didn't have it (remember, this is a "winery") I was "offered" a second white. When I asked more information the girl, which by the way, was the worse of our experience, didn't know exactly what type of wine it was. on her only real interaction, she mentioned the kitchen was closed because of a situation with a kitchen employee. I understand there are emergencies; what I don't get is there was a party and they were eating. They could have easily picked up the phone and say we will not serve more people or we are just tired, Do not recommend.

    Cute winery in a neighborhood that is undergoing revitalization. Originally had us seated on a couch / chairs with a trunk coffee table in between that we felt would be better suited for cocktails only. They were happy to reseat us. Staff was friendly and had good service. Food was good but felt it needed a little more flavor. Luckily they provided us with several different hot sauces which helped add a little kick. Tried several different cocktails all of which were good. Would go back and would recommend.
