On behalf of the entire Wally’s Team, we are honored to be recognized by Wine Spectator in this year’s 2019 #WSRestaurantAwards. These prestigious and selective awards celebrate achievements in outstanding wine programs world-wide and we’re proud to announce that both of our locations have been honored. Wally’s Santa Monica, open for less than a year, has won a ‘Best of Award of Excellence’ Award, and Wally’s Beverly Hills has won the Grand Award, representing the highest level of world wine service, for the third year in a row.
Wine Spectator's Restaurant Awards recognize restaurants whose wine lists offer interesting selections, are appropriate to their cuisine and appeal to a wide range of wine lovers.
To qualify for an award, a wine list must present complete, accurate information, including vintages and appellations for all selections. Complete producer names and correct spellings are mandatory, and the overall presentation of the list is also considered. Lists that meet these requirements are judged for one of our three awards. - Wine Spectator
