Just figured out why this store has such a high rating....
I've been really perplexed on how such a mediocre store can have such a long list of glowing reviews...then it finally dawned on me - ALL of these glowing reviews were written by the folks that run the place! Check the date - all on the same day, right around the time these guys open. (Yes, I'm bored tonight, and yes I'm googling this stuff just to be irritating.) Anyway, it all makes so much more sense to me now. I can finally sleep.
Here's my original review from a few days ago, if anyone cares. Kudos to these guys for the enthusiastic self-promotion though! Wooo, way to take advantage of the objective forum of reviews that is Citysearch!
Yes the store is really pretty (see also: empty) and yes the computer thingies fun to gaze at if you're bored, but sorry, that doesn't make up for stupidly inflated prices on what is, at best, a very mediocre selection of wines. I'm just not sure who they're selling wine to - surely not the people looking for a $5 of wine to have with pizza, and certainly not anyone who actually knows their wines (their high-end selection is pretty laughable).
It's not a bad place - don't get me wrong - and the sales staff are indeed very friendly and helpful, but I just can't figure out why all these people are so obsessed with this store.
