Great service and selections
We went to Cova last Friday evening for wine and tapas, after purchasing a discount gift certificate on restaurantsdotcom. We were not disappointed. We each enjoyed a different wine flight (a selection of 3 different specifically paired wine tastes - 2 oz. each) and several tapas/raciones. The cheeses we selected were fantastically unique, and the meats served to accompany the cheeses were delicious. The seared tuna with avocado salad was fantastic, as was the red pepper pizza. We had no problem getting refills on bread with the meat/cheese plate, water, etc. What we didn't have was a table big enough to hold all our plates and glasses! Our server was friendly, perfectly attentive, and she applied our gift certificate to our bill with no additional delays. I saved the menu to locate some of our choices at Specs for home entertaining. We will definitely return.

Drink Don't Eat
If you want to eat anything at Cova, go for something they don't have to cook like the cheese and meat selections. The menu is incredibly pretentious and execution is underwhelming at best. A "mushroom napolean" was a pile of sauteed mushrooms over salty waffle potato chips. I was informed that the name had recently changed from the "mushroom tower". Tower or Napolean... it sucked. I've been to Cova several times and been satisfied with the wine selections but the food consistently disappoints. When you're paying that much for the wine you would at least like to have some decent food with it. Chips and salsa from the mercado across the street would be an improvement.

avoid cova wine bar
in the mood for over priced wine lockers and bad service, this is just the place for you ! I have spent thousands of dollars at this place and they don't care...go somewhere where they appreciate your business ...Try Max's wine dive, the wine is great and the food is great...

Save Your Money
Save you money and go elsewhere
Cova used to be a great place to stop in, everyone knew your name and what you liked to drink and eat. So much that you forgot (or didnt mind) paying higher prices for good service. I went int he other day and didnt recognize ONE person who worked there the last time I was in. (About a month ago)

Now everyone who works there thinks they are better that everyone else and could give **** about the customers.

What a joke!
This is more like a pretentious restaurant with overpriced wine than a wine bar with some entrees. This is NOT a wine friendly place. The prices are exorbitant and the selection is laughable. I have heard from other wine bars that the buyer is so unfriendly that many vendors will not even call on him. I guess this expains the lack of selection. There are also rumors about the circumstances involving the wine buyer's departure from Central Market. If you are in the area, go over to the Tasting Room instead!
