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 Welcomed warmly by the matre de Service excellent. Constantly refilling our glasses and providing warm bread. Food was month watering with flavors complementing each other. Will return often Apr 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quite possibly the BEST restaurant I've ever eaten at. The owner asks your name and greets you when you come in AND when you leave. The food is above and beyond: my hubby and I had the foie gras appetizer (sooo good) and for my meal I had this white fish (I think it was sole) while he had the hanger steak. This place fills up quickly so come early! What I loved most was dessert-- a sampler with chocolate and lemon mousse and a creme brulee. So unbelieveably amazing! Mar 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Even though the restaurant was busy and there was only two of us in our party, our waiter was attentive and informative. It was appreciated. Mar 29, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by The food was overpriced and OK. Mar 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Went to celebrate girlfriend's birthday. The host greeted her by name and even had a birthday wish printed on the menu. She also got to keep the personalized menu signed by all the staff. Made her very happy! Mar 19, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by The food quality and our wait staff was outstanding. Unfortunately the host was complaining about customers in the dinning room, and kitchen staff walked through with dirty aprons for no apparent reason. Mar 18, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Although we had a reservation, we were not seated until 20 minutes after the scheduled time; we were seated at the adjacent and associated wine bar to wait. The atmosphere was very crowded and loud. The food was decent, but very pricey. I did not feel this was a good value, even with the certificate. However, the service was top-notch. Mar 7, 2015
