    Server was very stand-off-ish and unpleasant. Wine was subpar at best and the ambiance was crowded upstairs with planes flying overhead every two minutes. Probably won’t be going again anytime soon.

    Our server was OUTSTANDING! We went thinking we wanted brunch but nothing really appealed and the regular menu is not served until 4pm Sat/Sun (wish that had been noted on their website ahead of time). We ended up with the chopped salad - so, so so good and charcuterie board which left a lot to be desired. The pinot noirs were ok (we are both pinot noir drinkers on the regular) but the special rose bubbly (not on the menu) was delicious. We sat for hours and just chatted, watching planes fly overhead and nibbling on our food. I would for sure go back.

    When we got there they did not have our reservation but were nice enough to get us a table. The wine was excellent but they have poor food choices . Only appetizers and a bowl of chili. Very expensive for a night out and now real dinner.

    Love music in the back, was very nice. Good for diverse crowd. Not too loud.. still able to hear each other talk. Wine pick up selection was perfect . Passed on the small bite. Not everyone loves oysters and some allergic. I understand it is a trendy food right now, however, Suggest your offering is not so intense next time. Overall , as always had a wonderful experience that’s why I recommend and keep coming back.

    Brunch here was super good. We split the Frittata, the churro toast, and the cornbread & pork belly. Highly recommended. Girlfriend did a wine flight and I had sangria. Didn’t need our reservation for when we showed up cuz it was early, but people were showing up the whole time after.

    Wednesday night comedy at Pali is becoming a regular event for my friends and I. Kash, the comedy host, is always a joy and the wait staff is on top of things. If you’re looking for a chill wine night then attend Pali on a night other than comedy night (Wednesdays), but if you like to have fun, laugh, and aren’t afraid of a little joke then I highly recommend visiting Pali on a Wednesday. (And just don’t talk during the sets people, it’s not that hard!)

    We had reservations for a normal table but they sent my daughter outside when she arrived first. The heater above out table was broke so we were cold throughout the visit. The service was slow but friendly. My daughter has the smoked salmon hummus, she thought the salmon tasted just poached without seasoning, it was listed to contain pine nuts but had-toasted chick peas or corn nuts. The pita bread was seasoned w garlic- which was fine.. but when you are tasting wine.. seems to defeat the purpose. Was told that their snack was their version of trail mix,, but really seemed like chili flavored corn nuts with a few real nuts and cranberries thrown in. the bread and whipped butter was good, the wine was nice but not a place I would go again sadly.

    The location and wine flight were good. The downside was choosing a bottle and being told that there was an extra 10 dollars added to the bottom from the listed price. Didn't make sense to us and it was disappointing that they would do that. We were asked to move because a larger group needed the table yet when we moved they never used the tables.
