I am disappointed in my visit to this business. I understand the so so meal. The business is geared as a wine bar. Now as a wine bar you would think if a customer did not like a wine or thpught it had soured the business would try to make it right. Not in this case. I was told it was okay and what i ordered. Kinda disappointed.

The food and drinks are good, especially their gimlet. However every time I have been the service is the absolute worst. Glasses have sat empty for hours, a waitress sat and chatted with another table for 30min with our check in her hand and more instances than I can even count. The speed and attention to tables has become an ongoing joke for our friends. We have suggested this place to many others along with the caveat of knowing the service is borderline embarrassing. My advice...go expecting just one delicious beverage but count on the evening taking 1.5 - 2 hours for A drink.

What a great experience. Excellent Wine Selection and friendly and wine savvy staff. Our Waitress Dawn was a fantastic guide through the wine tastings and showed how to find the right selections with our meal and after meal drinks too.

I'm a new transplant to the area and I believe in supporting a decent downtown infrastructure. I was happy to see such an establishment that has opened in the area. I went for the first time and was automatically placed in a relaxed mode after a long day. This is the perfect place to come in, relax and sip a good wine, while you converse. It's also a nice place for a blind date if you're in the mode as well. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, a must for the Dayton area.

This is a neat place to try some wines and relax with friends or family. The food is okay but not great in my opinion, especially for the price. They have a large selection of wines and some beers so if you're looking to have some drinks and food to go along with it, it's still a good place to go. Service is unpredictable...I've had very prompt friendly service at times, other times it has been slow and I have felt like a bother to my waiter. Usually it's pretty good though.

I'm still reeling from the horrible experience my friends and I encountered here last night. I was appalled at the rudeness of the staff who were providing us with substandard and inattentive so-called service. We were greeted rudely, acknowledged like we were going to have perhaps a few tastes of wine and then leave, our so-called server sat at the bar having her dinner while the rude host/server jumped in in a huff to take our dinner order. We had to ask for napkins and another glass of wine -not at any point were were greeted with a smile and asked how anything tasted. When our initial server returned to the table to ask about our checks, she had no clue that groucho had completed our transactions. Unacceptable. Not one thank you for joining us tonight, and I need to mention that although this was after the Ghost and Goblin 5 K these ladies did not have a full house and were not too busy to be attentive or nice. Kudo's to the chef -the pizzas were very good -that's the only positive thing I can report here in addition to the Merlot -it was good. Our other friend had the Cab-Sauv which she liked. I can't return here- I still have a bad aftertaste.

The food was mediocre at best and overpriced. I ordered the grilled salmon which was overcooked and tough. The restaurant was dead on a Saturday night which leaves me to question how long this place will remain open.

The Wine Gallery is my favorite downtown haunt. The wine selection is amazing, and the prices are reasonable. The food is good--not the focus, but still quite good. I recommend the mushroom pizza, the chicken sandwich, and the cheese tray. If you want wine, consider a flight. The flights are 2oz pours of 3 wines. it is a great way to learn about wines and fine a new favorite. The Wine Gallery is a great space. There are couches with low tables and more traditional tables and chairs. The decorations are not overwelming, and the tall ceiling give the area an elegance. The tall ceilings also allow noise to bounce, so go off peak if you have problems hearing in a crowd.
