A Wine Destination
Our passion for wine and our dedication to Guest service has garnered us many fans in the wine world and big awards. There’s no greater recognition for a restaurant’s wine program than Wine Spectator’s Grand Award. Competition is intense; only about 85 restaurants around the world achieve this honor each year. We are honored that our Houston Galleria location has won since 2010 and our Dallas location has won since 2011. Our newest location, Houston Downtown, opened its doors in November 2015 and has been awarded in 2016 and 2017 with the Best of Award of Excellence. This status has afforded us the opportunity to connect with some of the top wineries to create our unique wine dinners, and made us a major wine destination for connoisseurs. But we’re not content to just rest on our laurels. Our talented sommeliers and wine director are constantly out there, discovering new wines and expanding our wine-list, creating unique new events and fine-tuning our program to earn the Grand Award again and give you, our Guest, the finest experience possible.
Experience One-of-a-Kind Wine Events
Our wine dinners and tastings provide our Guests with unique ways to explore the world of wine. Our sommeliers take great pride in creating new concepts, like pitting one winery against another in a tasting, and bringing in exclusive and boutique wineries. These events offer something for everyone. The wine novice may enjoy a tasting, where they can expand their palate as they enjoy trying 10-15 different wines. A more knowledgeable wine enthusiast might prefer one of our sit-down wine dinners, in which our executive chefs collaborate closely with wineries to craft the perfect dishes to enhance the wines.
