Attention To Our Guests
The Downing Bottles and Bites is back open at 50% occupancy! Walk-ins are welcome or you can call ahead to guarantee seating.
As a commitment to the health of our guests and staff, we are still currently offering curb side pick-up - online ordering is now available!
Our retail shop will be open for you to stock up on your favorite wine and beer (call us for our current selections). We appreciate your understanding during this time, and look forward to continue serving our community in any way that we can!
Rockwall native, Chef David Hoffman and his wife, restaurant and wine industry veteran Jenni Hoffman, opened The Downing Bottles & Bites to bring their experience and expertise home to Downtown Rockwall. When you stop in, you'll be greeted by our retail and tasting area, where you can purchase wine and craft beer by the bottle to enjoy at home.
Or stay awhile in our cafe, where Chef David and his team serve up the very best small plates, sandwiches, and desserts. With both indoor and patio seating, it's the best spot for a date, family dinner, or quick weekday lunch in Rockwall.
Finally, don't forget to join us for an educational wine tasting or other event. Check our Events and Tastings Calendar for updates.
We'll see you soon!

Had a fantastic lunch on their neat patio with some girlfriends! The wine was delicious, the atmosphere was hip & chill, & the food was fabulous! What a great little downtown spot!! So glad to have this place in Rockwall!
If anybody asked me where one could find the best sandwiches in the DFW area, and wanted a managiere of beer choices, I'd send em on down to the Downing!

Went with a large party and the service was impeccable. Can’t wait to go back and try some more things on the menu. Told the server what taste I was looking for in a Chardonnay and she found the perfect one. I ended up buying a bottle to take home. Would highly recommend this place.
