COVA Hand-Selected Wines was chosen as of the top 3 restaurants by Beatrice Valencia from 002houston in the November 2008 issue.

“Cova is an enigma: a retail wine shop that’s also a lively wine bar that’s also a classy if happily casual restaurant… At Cova,… wines are selected and the menu happens around them.”
– DeMers, John. “Flights of Fancy: Cova Cooks to Showcase Its Many Walls of Wine.” Arts of Houston . November 2007: 36

“The sophisticated but accessible wine cafés called Cova… mix savvy vino selection with fun-to-share tapas in tie-off, shirt-unbuttoned, urban-chic settings. There are no rules in love and wine – and this place is as perfect for first-date flirting as for loosening up with an ex.”
– Smail, Debora. “Boom Boom.” Houston . June 2007: 105.

Recently recommend by Andrea Afra from Cuizine: A Taste of Houston , as a full wining and dining experience. It is the place for two or a group of ten, with a wonderful menu designed with every sense in mind.”
– Afra, Andrea. Cuizine: A Taste of Houston .

Texas Monthly Magazine rated COVA Hand-Selected Wines as one of the top 10 new restaurants in Texas for 2006.

COVA was named Pat’s Pick in Texas Monthly Magazine in the November 2005 issue.

“Fast wine-bar turnover, careful temperature control and well-edited, on-page by-the-glass list that changes weekly ensures that wines nearly always taste as they were meant to – even the rarified ones.”
– Cook, Allison. “First, the Wine: At Cova, pairing food and drink is art, a science.” Houston Chronicle . 1 November 2005

Gourmet Magazine named COVA Hand-Selected Wines a neighborhood gem… a first rate wine bar and exciting global tapas restaurant…”
Gourmet Magazine . October 2005.
