We love this place! The wine selection is excellent and affordable. Our first time there, Mike, the owner, offered us multiple tastings before we made up our minds on a bottle. We've been several times since, and seen the wine list change and diversify. Mike is very knowledgeable and has continued to be very helpful. The rest of his staff is perhaps not as motivated or passionate about what they do. The food selection is very enjoyable. There is an increasing number of items to choose from, all very well executed. They choose fine ingredients, and keep the selection simple, sticking to what they know best, with flavors truly reminiscent of Europe. And serving wine at 13 Celsius makes perfect sense in Houston! The decor adds to the charm of this place, although the outside seating is very inviting! Caroline Street is relatively quiet, something rare at other outside venues in Houston. In general, the place is busy enough to be lively, but not so packed that you can't get seating or service. We will definitely spread the word!
