Chris, the Som is a master of his craft. His knowledge is amazing and he will guide you towards the perfect bottle for your evening. Josh, the self proclaimed wine nerd, is awesome as well, a ton of wine knowledge without the title to score a great bottle.
On to the food, it is amazing and the portions are generous and priced great.
This little restaurant and wine shop is a hidden gem in Virginia Beach and a must go to for any wine lover!

My husband and I went here for my birthday. The food and wine were amazing! This is a top-notch, warm and friendly establishment! Our waiter informed us that there was no rush and we could enjoy our experience at our pace, which is so refreshing as a lot of times we are rushed to finish up. Also of note, you can try different, fine wines on tap. This is something we've never encountered, but really appreciated. You can get a tasting, small glass or full glass. If you are a wine enthusiast, I would definitely encourage you to try this restaurant/wine shop!

delicious food and nice that you can select a tasty bottle directly off the retail shelf to go with your meal. It was an especially noisy evening since they were filming an ebay segment and service was a bit slow but we attribute all of that to the special event they had going on. Overall meal was great.

Best Wine Bar that I have ever experienced!! Ambience is outstanding only to be exceeded by the wine selection and quality of the food! I had a whole Black Sea bass that was accompanied by tasty dirty rice and asparagus. Really outstanding! The Wine Expert (Josh) is top notch!

Honestly, I’ll start with my drink. I’m a bourbon drinker and drink my bourbon on the rocks. I ordered a Wild Turkey 101 on the rocks, my drink arrived to the table lightly colored and had no bite for a 101 proof bourbon. As it was not a big menu the choices are limited. My companion and I both ordered the Catch of the Day (Pan Seared Salmon, mine with asparagus and mashed potatoes hers with broccolini and jasmine rice. Both were ordered medium but arrived slightly over. The general presentation was very nice but had a dollop of some sauce that was not presented well and not very tasty, which we both removed. Although cooked slightly over, the salmon was “ok”, and the sides were tasty. We also shared the créeme brûlée which was delicious but the brûlée was thick and did not make for a good chew. In my honest unbiased opinion, the ambiance was noisy and busy but nice. The decor was tasteful and spacious for a small venue. Service was very nice (thank you Olivia) but the food average and the bourbon was weak, and not in line with the cost of the meal ($150+ w/tip)

It has been a while since we’ve been truly tickled by a restaurant but last night Yanni‘s did and knocked it out of the park. We’ve shopped several times & been delighted in buying cases of really nice wine. We thought we would give the restaurant to go and it did not disappoint. From the warm greeting coming in to the fresh baked hot bread, we immediately knew it was going to be a special evening. The knowledge and caring of the staff was exceptional and the food well prepared and well portioned. As wine lovers we also appreciated that there was no markup whatsoever on the wine bottles which was lovely. Thanks Yianni’s you are our new favorite!

Our waitress didn’t seem to be that well trained. She ask if we had dine there before and we said no. Then she handed us the card for the cuvée and didn’t show us how to use it.
The ventilation system seems to be not working properly. When we walked in the front door was open and it was hot outside. We were told it was because of the smoke from the kitchen. This happened again before we finished our dinner. In my opinion a restaurant should never have to open a door to clear smoke out the building.
