Wine Bar Rocky River Restaurant Review: Hidden behind a series of boutique shops just off Linda Street, this vino bar is all but invisible from the road. With a handsome patio, a snug interior, a fireplace and soft lighting, the Westside destination also is free of formality with flat-screen TVs, T-shirted servers and a noisy, laid-back clientele. The menu, while not dazzling, is adequate. Start with the drunken goat cheese fondue served with a red wine reduction. Then try one of the flatbread pizzas, such as grape and Gorgonzola with caramelized onions and toasted walnuts. The “Wino” fries and dessert options also are must-haves. (Don’t miss the trio of chocolate truffles.) Meanwhile, the wine list features about a dozen whites (including sparkling varieties), a dozen reds available by the glass (prices range from around $7 to $18), and approximately a hundred varieties by the bottle.
