The Wine Library is from the same people who run the Italian restaurant Buzo in nearby Jersey Rd. The evening food menu concentrates on snacky options like salumi platters. As you would expect the wine list is extensive, and offers an exiting range for any tastes and budget.
I really enjoyed it here. The food was really great and the place feels fancy in the good kind of way that you can get a bit dressed up, but have a relaxed, intimate evening with a close friend or partner. It's very popular and can get crowded, but the floor staff manage people really well and we were seated quite quickly. The share plates are really yummy and although I know nothing about wines, the staff were really good a recommending the best ones to go with the food.
Finally made it here after listening to friends often rave about it since it opened. It was packed and there were quite a few people waiting but as it's more of a bar than a restaurant, the crowd seems to turn over quite quickly and the waitress had us seated in less than 5 minutes. Great wine list - domestic and international and we shared two plates of food - both memorable. The empanadas and the tortilla with truffle and cheese - mmm my mouth waters just rememberingread more
Really enjoyed my night at the Wine Library. Two of us went for a girlie catch up and some dinner. We shared four plates of food, which was a good amount. The food is averagely priced but we found the wine a little pricey at $11+ per glass. The ceviche is highly recommended - light a beautifully zesty. The haloumi is interesting with a honey flavour. Loved the bresaola but the arancini was a bit of a miss, using rissoni instead of rice meant it didn't hold together as well.
