    My guest and I did not like to be rushed while we drink our wine eating. This experience has happened to me now several times. I directly know how challenging it can be to juggle multiple customers but on each occasion, the place was far from crowded. My guest and I, as well as my prior guests, felt like we were being politely being pushed to wrap up by the service. It may not be intentional at all but it did diminish the experience,

    Hello Rob, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you experienced. Had the server been promptly informed about the issues, we would have taken immediate steps to address and replace any unsatisfactory items. It’s important to communicate concerns during the dining experience to allow us the opportunity to enhance your visit. If the information was relayed to the server post-meal, regrettably, there are limited corrective measures we can take at that point. We regret any shortcomings and hope you consider giving us another chance in the future.

    Cute space; interesting menu; octopus was a little over-done. Mussels very good, as were anchovies. Wine flights were fun to taste and something not frequently offered in many restaurants.

    We had some wonderful drinks there. The mocktail I had was terrific and the wine drinkers were impressed with the selection of wines on the menu and really glad that I found this hidden gem. We will definitely be back. Looking forward to trying some food next time.

    Lovely dinner! Unrushed, decent noise level, engaging server and… the wine list served up some delicious reds, delicious bruschetta, veal ragu and cappellacci were beautifully done! It was perfect! Don’t tell the chef, we want to keep him!

    The food here was exceptional and the service was too. We had the basket to start and it was huge and delicious, from the chocolate croissants to the scone to the fresh crisp baguettes and jam. I had the smoked salmon crostini which for me could have been a little bigger but was delicious. My wife had the French toast which was huge and also delicious. The server and the manager were both wonderful. We are going to go back to try their dinner menu.

    There were four of us for a late after theater dinner. It was the first time in this restaurant and we didn’t know what to expect. It is a small intimate place, with nice decor and excellent art on the walls. The food was excellent and so was the service. We will come back to this special place.

    A great little spot near the theater district. Not a huge menu, but great quality for what is on the menu. An eclectic wine list that is affordable and fun. Great service and a good vibe, casual but nice wine bar vibe.
