One of the Best Happy Hours in the Valley
Vino is one of the Valley's hidden gems. I pride myself to know most Valley restaurant, and before going here I didn't even know it was there. But thankfully, I stumbled upon it.
I came here for happy hour and was quite surprised. Most places have short lists of drinks and food specials, but Vino had a long list of both.
Here's what we had the first time we were here:
-fried pickles ($1.50) LOVED!!!!
-crispy eggplant ($2.50) about 6-7 slices of eggplant (very thinly sliced) and drizzled with honey - This was okay. We thought it was a bit too sweet. Probably wouldn't ordered it again
-mini slider ($3.50) One slider with a small side of steak fries - I loved the burger, the fries were okay.
-Sauteed Mushrooms ($3.00) a small serving that is served with slices of crisp bread - Mmmmmmm sooooo good.
-Chicken Croquette ($2.00) a fried ball stuffed with marinated chicken breast and sharp Swiss cheese, served with a tomato aioli. - I highly recommend!
- Goat cheese stuffed dates wrapped with bacon ($3) Soooo good. Yum yum yum!
-Montadito ($1.50) - Goat Cheese and Tomato on Crostini - Very tasty.
-Shrimp shooter ($2) - It's good, but it is only one piece.
So all this food, 3 glasses of wine, and a glass of sangria only came to $40. That's only $20 per person!
As for the selection of HH wine, everything I've tasted is good. My favorite is the South African red.
Another plus is the decor. Dark wood, comfy seating, a large bar... it's very nice without having a cold feeling like other restaurants.
If you haven't been here, I definitely suggest you do!
