Yummy Wine Bar & Bistro - Proprietor Corey Albert features an eclectic full dinner menu at his bistro in the old Seaside Fire Station West Bay parking garage. The emphasis is on Northwest ingredients with flavor influences from other countries and described under nifty appetizers, scrumptious soups and salads, tasty sandwiches and luscious main entrees.  Happy hour comfort food is yummy and seasonally-changing wines are sold by the taste, glass or bottle.  The establishment is decorated with what Albert calls “lowbrow art”, by local artists.  His email bulletins letting diners know of special events and dinners are very clever.

Yummy wine bar & bistro * NEW AMERICAN CUISINE   "I'm moving in, and I'm not leaving," I once overheard a customer say at this stylish wine bar in downtown Seaside.  That sums up how well appreciated this place is in a town very short on good places to eat.  With its hip, retro decor, casual attitude, and long wine list, Yummy is a fun place not only for a glass of wine and a snack, but also for a full meal.  The menu changes seasonally, and there are always interesting specials, but you might start with an onion tartlet made with Montrachet cheese and then move on to pistachio gnocchi, prosciutto-wrapped ling cod, or pan-roasted scallops on cauliflower puree.  If you're just here for wine and something light, try to grab one of the coaches by the fireplace.

Like an urban oasis in the heart of old town Seaside, you'll find Yummy wine bar & bistro.  The place is retro-hip located in the old city firehouse and you can sip wine, sample appetizers or indulge in finely crafted entrees.  Sit at a table, relax in a club chair, or lounge on the sofa next to the fireplace.

  • Coast Exployer   l   Best of Seaside Dining   -  Summer 2011     by Gary Hayes - editor / publisher

With abundant casual dining choices and talented chefs who lend their creative skills to Northwest specialties, here's our guide to can't miss choices for dining in Seaside.            

Best Chowder
Yummy Wine Bar & Bistro
You'll find a lot of good chowder in Seaside, so you're likely to have as difficult of a choice picking your favorite as we did. We're going with Yummy Wine Bar & Bistro's seafood chowder that is a traditional New England style with halibut, Manila clams and diced prawns. The twist here is the use of yams that adds a touch of sweetness and a nice contrast for smoky bacon. Each bowl is made to order so the chunks of seafood, yams and bacon remain firm in the reduced and seasoned cream base. A sprinkling of fresh chopped parsley finish the dish.

Most Romantic Dining
Yummy Wine Bar & Bistro
The cozy atmosphere at Yummy Wine Bar and Bistro with comfy couches and chairs grouped around the glowing fire make them our winner for romantic atmosphere. If you're not hip to the funky 60s TV trays, pick a table to the rear where the glow of candles dominates the lighting.

  • The Daily Astorian  l  Opinion  l   Editor's Note  l  Here are many places and people that make our region so special -Friday 31 December 2010     by Steve Forrester, editor & publisher

Of the many great restaurants in our region, Yummy is one of the most creative. That starts with its proprietor Corey Albert, who reinvented himself as a restaurateur after being a rescue swimmer with the U.S. Coast Guard. Corey is far from the only creative North Coast chef-proprietor. But he is an example of why ingenuity matters.

  • The Daily Astorian  l  Opinion  l  Editor's Note  l  Of Cabbages and Kings: What summer?  -  Wednesday 08 September 2010     by Steve Forrester, editor & publisher

… Following our look at art, my wife, daughter and I enjoyed dinner at the Yummy Wine Bar & Bistro in Seaside, where exquisite entrees and wine are reasonably priced. Everyone has their test of what makes a restaurant exceptional. One of my yardsticks is chicken, because at home many of us eat a lot of it. Some restaurants, I think, treat chicken as a throwaway entree and take it for granted. On Saturday night I ordered the chicken scallopine, and I'll say that Yummy has given the concept of roast chicken new meaning.

Visiting Seaside's Yummy wine bar & bistro on Saturday evening reminded me of that place's excellence.  Like Urban Cafe, Yummy is utterly consistant.  Its relentless imagination and the variety of its wine selection set it apart.

I loved seeing the Oregon coast in your June issue ["Driving"], but you missed a great restaurant: Yummy wine bar & bistro (831 Broadway; 503/738-3100; dinner for two $65), in the Gilbert district of Seaside.  I know, I know - Seaside is the land of honky-tonk, not high cuisine, but this place stands out with local, seasonal theme: the dishes, wines, and artworks in the adjoining gallery all come from the area and change four times a year.  Give it a try, won't you?

  •   l   Attractions   l   North Coast  -  Wednesday, March 11, 2009     by Jim Gullo


     Ask Corey Albert why there is an orange stripe running down the middle of the concrete floor at his nifty new Yummy wine bar & bistro in Seaside, and he will leap to his feet to pull a photo off the wall. The photo shows how the chic Yummy space was once a parking garage for the Seaside Fire Station’s fire engines, and it makes you appreciate how far this space has come since Corey transformed it into Seaside’s hippest eatery when it opened on April 20, 2007.
“I knew one day that I wanted to have my own little café,” he said. “We’re a full-blown wine bar and a full-blown bistro. There’s nothing like this in the county.”
Atop that original floor, and within the exposed-brick walls of the old firehouse are now a two-sided fireplace, orange leather furniture and fabric sofas for lounging, and bistro tables done in blonde, wood block. There are lava lamps on shelves, and when you order food in the sofa section, it is delivered on the kind of old, tinny tray tables that we ate from while watching Lucy on TV in the ‘60s. I loved those tray tables.
The food is upscale and elegant, with entrees like roasted lamb loin served with a cherry-port demi glace, or volcano spiced ahi tuna served on a stack of sesame rice and cucumber salad. Artisan cheeses, marinated olives and a cured meat plate are available for light bites.
To this, Albert – who was once a rescue swimmer with the U.S. Coast Guard, and then owned a pizza restaurant in Cannon Beach for many years – adds a selection of some seventy Northwest and International wines, and delights in creating flights for tasting. To that end, I got quickly familiar with a selection of Cabernet franc pours from Oregon, California and Washington.
It is a combination that would fit right in with a trendy Portland neighborhood, or a Willamette Valley wine community. “I wanted a place to go and socialize with friends that is different,” said Corey. “And here it is.”
Different, sure, but what’s the word we’re looking for? It’s on the tip of our tongue…oh yes, it’s yummy. Yummy says it all.

     The quiet of the Friday after New Year's Day is a useful moment to reflect on the place we live.  Many Americans are seaching for a unique place, not another anonymous strip-malled and franchised place. We've got that unique place.  With that in mind, here are 22 reasons this place is special: ... 12. The sophisticated cuisine and urbane aesthetic of the Yummy wine bar & bistro in Seaside.

  • The Daily Astorian   l   OPINION  - Wednesday, December 10, 2008     by Stephen A. Forrester - editor / publisher

     On the recommendation of two of my co-workers, my wife and I enjoyed dinner last Saturday night at the Yummy wine bar & bistro in Seaside.  We were not disappointed.  In fact, we were elated.  The quality of Yummy's cuisine, the aesthetic of its decor and the quality of its service set it apart from the rest of the Astoria-Seaside-Peninsula dining scene.  The spaghetti bolognese I orderd was a leap beyond what Astoria's Italian restaurant offers.

  • Northwest Palate   l   Food, Wine & Travel of the Pacific Northwest   l   Exploring the North Oregon Coast  - September/October 2008     by M.J. Cody

     Yummy wine bar & bistro, a newcomer, is putting Seaside on the culinary map.  Friendly service plus a clean, hip and sophisticated, yet casual atmosphere is just the right combination.  From their intriguing menu of nightly "chalkboard" offerings, Sue and I shared the design-your-own platter and found a first-rate crab and artichoke dip and salmon spread, plus Italian salamis and a mix of cheeses. ... we had the, yes, yummy sweet onion cream soup and the ahi tuna steak sandwich with avocado, vine-ripened tomatoes, and cheddar cheese on house-made focaccia bread with a creamy pesto dressing (both dishes found on their summer menu; their menu evolves with every season).  The ahi and its piquant dressing was terrifically enhanced by owner Corey Albert's suggestion of a smooth Spanish white wine, 2006 Albarino from Rias Baixas.

    (Ecola State Park hiking trail between Cannon Beach & Seaside, Oregon) ... I had to admit it was pretty special to be alone in a place so raw and wild. Maybe my husband was onto something. So I let him talk me into venturing out the next day, hiking the trail leading to another resort town, Seaside. We would reward ourselves with a trip to the town's hip new wine bar, Yummy. (Yes, that's the name of the place, and, yes, it lived up to its moniker.)

  • Justout   l   Coast with the Most - February 01, 2008     by Jedidiah Chavez

     Yummy Wine Bar and Bistro is a sophisticated yet comfortable restaurant featuring a menu full of flavor and passion. Yummy owner (pun intended) Corey Albert prides himself on the welcoming environment at his bistro. The food is so fantastic that an entire trip could be planned around the menu.  This is a rewarding alternative to the usual deep-fried fare (i.e., fish and chips) that haunts most coastal towns and most tourists’ stomachs.

  • The Daily Astorian   l   Coast Weekend   l   Mouth of the Columbia - November 1-7, 2007     by Lori McKean

     For years, I've joked with friends about writting a food review where the only words I used to describe the food were "yummy" and "yucky."  When Yummy wine bar & bistro opened in Seaside early this year, I thought this would be the perfect time to use my simplistic reviewing method.  The only trouble is, Yummy isn't "yucky" at all.  In fact, it is way beyond "yummy."  While the food is extremely delicious in a comfort sort of way, it is equally sophisticated in flavor and execution.  The atmosphere and service at Yummy far exceeded my expectations ... and is designed in a way that makes it feel cozy - no matter how many people are dining there.  Even though I swore I wouldn't say it, I found myself saying "yummy" all night long.

  • The Sunday Oregonian   l   Travel - July 15, 2007     by Gerry Frank

     A new place in Seaside is popular with the crowd that likes "hot" destinations.  Give Yummy a try for fun, tasty treats and good drinks.

  • The Sunday Oregonian   l   Travel  - July 15, 2007     by Terry Richard

     After 30 years of writing about beautiful spots in Oregon, I thought I had seen them all.  I was wrong.  Yummy wine bar and bistro in Seaside's old fire station, where a table of six single women compared the food with the best of Paris.

  • HipFish - July/August 2007

     This new wine bar is dudded YUMMY.  From its delectable array of wine to its inexorably urban atmosphere this bouquet of taste is a pre-gaming hit ... we'd recommend Yummy as the number one place in the county to take that someday first-date for a high-quality Cab and a good tasty dish.  Check it out, the lady/lad will love it.

  • Coast River Business Journal - June 2007

     Yummy is the word for the latest eatery in Seaside.  Owner Corey Albert crafted Yummy to fit his convivial vision of a "hip, groovy space" where customers can sip, dine, unwind and socialize ... welcoming to wine experts and novices alike.  The overall decor and layout is, well groovy - and inviting.

     Yummy wine bar & bistro is not intimidating, yet it's sophisticated, hip and groovy.  Yummy is a casual, comfortable place to enjoy wine and have a good time.

  • Seaside Signal - April 26, 2007

     T-minus 24 hours and counting before the opening hour - tables are set, the wine is on the wall, food preparations are being performed and still much to do, but the show will still go on ... with the help of the bistro's eight new members, those details were addressed in a teamwork fashion with mere hours to go before guests arrived. ... absolutely nothing was left unattended ... each visual detail is designed to give the inside the look of being the most modern and hippest place in town.

  • Seaside Signal - March 1, 2007

     For now, the wall studs stick out like a skeleton.  A large workbench sits on one side of the room, covered with tools and equipment.  Scaffolding tower over another in the corner of the room.  A foot-wide trench snakes around the back half of the room awaiting pipes for drainage ... but somewhere in the forefront of Corey Albert's mind is a finished wine bar & bistro decorated in a 1970's "groovy" contemporary fashion.  Seaside awaits this hip new establishment.

I came down and spent 5 days at Seaside for some well deserved R&R.  On Thursday of last week, Doris and I came down to Yummy.  I have to tell you…you have a winner!  I spend a lot of time in the Seattle area and have travelled elsewhere.  I loved the décor and ambience at Yummy as soon as I came in.  I had your steamed clams for an appetizer then the pizza (taking much home to eat on the drive home back to the Tri-Cities on Friday).  The clams were phenomenal!  With the bread to soak up those succulent juices…what a masterpiece.  And the pizza….ahhhh!  I love pizza but don’t enjoy it very often because many times the crust is just too much.  Your crust was light yet with a crunch and the toppings were a pleasant surprise.
I look forward to coming back and enjoying your wonderfully prepared food, beautiful, welcoming décor & ambience – and great service.
Sincerely,  Debbie Mensinger

Hi Corey,
I just wanted to send you a quick thank you for the amazing dinner you provided on New Year's Eve.  Both Matthew & I loved every course provided (especially the halibut cheeks) and even came back another night for a second helping of the truffles.  Your staff were very friendly and helpful in choosing the right wine for the night (the pairings were perfect) and we loved the toast & party favors that came along with it. 
We'll definitely be back the next time we're in town, can't wait to see what's on the menu then!

Hello Yummy’s Staff,
We visited the Yummy Wine Bar last weekend and had a really enjoyable meal with some great house wine.  We were so entranced with your wonderful staff and establishment that we decided the next female Suri Alpaca cria (baby) born at our ranch would be your namesake.  So here she is…welcome “Yummyleah” to the world!  She was born about 15 minutes ago and is already walking.  She weighed in at 20.12 pounds and is a glorious copper red/brown as is her Dad.  Mom and baby doing great.  Yummyleah will be a championship animal by the looks of things! Thought you might like to know.  Pictures attached.
Warm regards,
Shelley Appler Peters
