Highlights

Culinary Philosophy, Wink Restaurant stresses the innovative use of the freshest ingredients. Seafood is flown in daily from both the east and west coasts, local farmers supply produce, herbs, and cheeses, and small local purveyors are constantly on the lookout for fresh, new product. Respect for these ingredients is the cornerstone of the Wink culinary philosophy. The cook's mandate is to draw out, compliment, and enhance the natural flavors, not to over manipulate and disguise the natural beauty of the product. The goal is achieved by using sauces based on fresh vegetable purees and essences, infused oils, and light stock emulsification's. This philosophy carries through to the dessert menu. Each plate is designed to compliment specific ingredient choices, from fresh local chevre to unique Venezuelan chocolate with a heavy emphasis on the freshest seasonal produce. Wine Philosophy, Wink's staff believes that wines are an integral part of the dining experience. To keep the staff and guests enthusiastic about the wine program, the wine list under goes minor additions and deletions 2 to 3 times each week. The dynamic nature of the list makes it possible to bring in wines from small vintners where production is limited, putting them on the list when they are available and dropping them off when the supply is exhausted. The wine list itself is relatively compact with 60 to 70 selections by the bottle and roughly 50 selections by the glass. There is an emphasis on food friendly wines such as sauvignon blanc, Riesling, champagne, gigondas, syrah, Grenache, and pinot noir. The service staff is well versed in the nuances of the wine list and is happy to make suggestions for wine and food pairings to make your dining experience complete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wonderful service, impeccable food Feb 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by It was Valentine's Day and we didn't make a reservation so the main restaurant was full, but there was plenty of room in Wink's wine bar next door. The atmosphere was quiet and intimate, and the wine bar served the full menu and the bartenders gave us full service. Feb 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The food is excellent, as always. The wine list is innovative and lovely. The service though sets this restaurant apart. Mark greets you at the door and calls you by name, the waitstaff are kind and personable and have extraordinary customer service acumen. I can't say enough great things. Feb 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great service, amazing food! Feb 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Host was very friendly. Greet and asked our names as we walk in. Say goodbye when we leave and address us by names - he remembered! and we have foreign names. Feb 10, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Ambience, bread, food were outstanding. Great water (I appreciate this). Dessert was perhaps even better than the entrees. All lovely. However, a single scallop, one scallop cut thinly and interleaved with some veggies and sauce does not qualify as an entree. I mean, seriously. I started coming to this restaurant way back when it first opened and the food and menu have only improved, but I'm a little sad to say that maybe the portions are a little too theoretical for me.
