Though the atmosphere was lively, the service accommodating, and the wine fantastic (as expected from a winery-lead spot), the food was, sadly, either hit or miss. But bkw does have a reward program in place, which could be a fun addition to a wine-loving couple’s life. Listen below to Holly & Josh’s full review.

The fried plantains were my favorite. The Brussels sprouts were okay, but I was not a fan of the meat included. The hummus and the pumpkin seed brittle were both a little disappointing, but the brittle grew on me with time.

Our waitress was super friendly and had a great attitude. I found the maitre d and one of the other servers were a little less friendly and seemed a little stuck up.

It was just a little too stuffy to truly be fun! And, we weren’t blown away by anything. We were seated in a back corner and kept just finding everything to be “meh”.

Our main server was friendly, timely, and helpful.

It was a cozy and softly-lit space, not too loud so we could have a conversation.
