Formaggio Wine Bar

Formaggio Wine Bar is a little restaurant tucked away in Market City Shopping Center.  It’s located right next to the Fujioka’s Wine Times – its windows and door is completely blacked out so you could easily miss it if you’re not looking for this place.  Once inside, you seat yourself wherever you like.  It’s very dark in here and they even offer live performances some nights.  I’ve been here a few times in the past few years but the quality has steadily gone downhill.  My past visit a few weeks ago cemented my thoughts about not returning again unless I’m pretty desperate.

Moscato Sunrise - the best part of my meal.  Pinot Grigio and Moscato served together, gorgeous right?

Onion Soup Gratinee - not bad, but pretty salty.

Lobster Bisque - creamy and delicious

Kobe Burger Panini - my usual order.  The salad and its dressing is still great.  The burger this time was dry and tasteless - I was very disappointed.  The burger is usually flavorful and is cooked to your specifications.  They did cook it medium rare as requested but it was still very rough.

Hamburger Steak - seasoning was okay.  The patty was the same as mine - rough!

Something was also up with their air conditioning this night.  My friend and I were sweating bullets by the time we were done – we couldn’t get out of there fast enough.  As we were leaving, the seats by the door definitely felt cooler so try to seat yourselves up there if you end up going.
