The location was very nice overlooking the river and the boats and traffic on the river. The wine in the tasting was very good with a chance to experience newer wines that I may never have tried otherwise. The cheese and the charcuterie was very nice, although we did not get to choose what we wanted.

I was glad that I had the coupon since the cost for what we received would have been excessive otherwise, even at Chicago prices. The three tastings amounted to about one glass if you ordered it, and the plate was like a large tapas portion. For $55.00 this would have felt like a waste. Also, our reception using the coupon seemed a bit less than friendly. Also the wine came out about 15 minutes before the plate. Since I had ordered a sparkling tasting, my wine was getting warm waiting on it.

The selection of wine flights and the view sitting along the river.

Being able to sit outside and the chefs selection was great. Had lunch and my husband said the chorizo in the paella was the best he's ever had.

the deal was better than we expected.
