My girlfriend and I came here for our anniversary - a great romantic place to celebrate.These guys are pretty smart combining wine and chocolate. It's pretty much a win win for them. The place was full of ladies -- I was one of the only guys, which was a-ok. The food was really good, and reasonably priced for what it was, as a wine bar at least. I had the filet and it was awesome. My gf had the fish which was good too. And we shared the hummus, which I wasn't excited about it it turned out to be pretty great itself. After dinner we did a bunch of truffles. I'm not really a chocolate guy, but even I thought they were pretty good, and the girlfriend, well, she was over the moon. She's already planning a trip there with her girlfriends. Add to the estrogen of the place, I guess.
Amazing little hole in the wall on the Upper East Side!!! Food is delicious and wine selection is beyond superb!!! I took a friend of mine who isn't a vivid wine drinker or drinker at all and he had a great time. We had the Red and White Wine samples which gave him a feel of what he preffered and then we ordered a bottle of Riesling. The service is great!!! I believe the owner himself took care of us which gives you a very good feeling about the place. The food was great we had the goat cheese based crostini and a mushroom pizza, DELICIOUS!!! The flavor is exquisite. Will definitely be back for more!!!
I went for the fist time a few months ago and I just keep going back. The waitstaff is so welcoming and the outside patio is really lovely and great for the warm weather. As far as wine bars in New York City go, this is one of the best. I like the ravioli and the fish dish is excellt as well. The pickeld trio thing was a little disappointing though. It was pretty small and slightly strange. We tried it on a whim though, just to see something new so I guess perhaps we were in for it. Other than that, I have tried most things on the menu and everything is really excellent.
