Still a great neighborhood hangout

I am shocked at the negative reviews. I visit Sip 4-5 times a week, and I have never had a bad experience. The food is always good. To be honest, the chef has a unique take on certain dishes, and some people may not like some of the dishes (I for one have never taken to the sweet ""Billionaires Bacon""), but all the dishes are well prepared. Today I had a bowl of the potato leek soup and it was super. As for the service, I have never been treated badly there. Everyone has been pleasant and friendly. If you're looking for a white glove, formal place . . . this isn't it. But if you're looking for a welcoming neighborhood place with very good food, and terrific, if somewhat wacky, atmosphere, then visit Sip.

Fav place gone seriously bad

Heartbroken. Don't go here! One of my favorite neighborhood haunts has taken a serious turn for the worse. After a couple of years of great music, tasty food, and good drinks, I've had two bad encounters. Not the food, not the music but the service. Thursday night...buy food, get wine 1/2 price...great deal! Of six wines on the list there are only three available at 7pm...not nearly the end of 1/2 price night. I didn't even come for the 1/2 price wine but thought, why not? Intending to buy a bottle, we ask to try a few wines (the ones we ask for they don't have so we try the remainders). The waiter is patronizing but delivers the samples. We order two of the most expensive food items and a bottle of wine (not great wine but I wanted to support the place). Wine arrives. It's terrible. Food arrives and smells dee-lish as always. Wine is terrible so I ask to order two cocktails instead of the wine ($28 bucks instead of the $10 bottle of wine) and the waiter is outraged. I was even going to pay for the wine. So, $35 in food, $28 cocktails, $10 in wine...a lot of money at sip. The waiter grabs our food from the table and tells us to leave. The punch line...the waiter is the OWNER. Ah...that's how to run a business...one I have supported for a long time and will NEVER again frequent.

Horrible Service, Uncomfortable Space‎

Small place, shockingly rude service. Table arrangement makes it impossible to navigate. So difficult a friend (w/ a cane) was made to feel out of place by waiters & customers. Another time I waited for a menu for 10 min. The owner yelled at me for not ordering (I was not given a menu!) and for a table rearrangement done by customers before me. He yelled at the next table because a lady opened a candy bar. She explained ""diabetic."" He said he didn't care and she could leave. Shocked, I left.

great food, fun atmosphere, fun people all around great

Food is surprisingly good....affordable esp. Mondays when everything is half off...free tapas b/t 5-7 and 2am-4am...good place to meet new people, hook up to the internet and have good food. Go see for yourself. And 3 course brunch saturdays and sundays including all you can drink mimosas, bloody marys, coffee, tea and juice, cant beat it....Best place in NYC youve prob never heard of

best hangout in the upper west

i love sip and if you love cheap yummy food you will too. the staff is awsome and the owner is really cool (and usually there talking and hanging out with guests). the wait staff is sometimes a little short but it is never a problem because the atmoshere is so nice you don't mind waiting a few minutes. the only bad thing that has ever happened to me there is sometimes the music is too loud and i have ended up with no voice by the end of the night. but seriously don't let that stop you. monday is even half price for everything!

Bland and Unpleasant

I recently made the mistake of trying the food at Sip. Now I know why it's called Sip and not Eat. The coffee tasted average, but my meal (a field green salad with chicken and the daily soup) was tasteless and bizzarely overpriced. The waiter forgot part of my order and, when the salad arrived, it was tiny and drowning in dressing. Yet somehow, this salad cost a stunning $15.

Worst of all, the manager of the cafe was rude and could be overheard talking a foul-mouthed way and used a slur word. It's too bad, because Sip seems like the kind of small place that could be charming. Instead, Sip ends up feeling chintzy. Fortunately, there are other places around Columbia that are the real deal.

Best Free Tapas in NYC at happy hour

I love this place. It's just south of 110 on Amsterdam. They must have a gourmet chef or something but it's a pocket bar that is as cozy as my apartment. Great DJ music and lots of cool parties. Try the anchovy cheese or the sipwich.

Wonderful Deal

Regional's brunch is really great. I was there Saturday and had to ask the waitress to put more OJ in the mimosa because it was a little too strong. The food was wonderful. They have great choices to choose from. I tried something different, the Pandoratto which was like a french toast sandwhich. Delicious! Yes, it does get crowded because it is not so secret anymore and it is a great deal, so they take reservations, which is probably a great idea.

great food and brunch, so-so service

PRO: went out to SIP a couple of weeks ago for their new brunch, they have all-you-can-drink-mimosa-or-other now on offer with the brunch menu. The potato and egg-dish was great, and the french-press coffees are really good. Mimosa was not watered down at all, and for $25 each we walked out of there after a couple of hours nicely drunk. Athmosphere is great; they sometimes have a live DJ; def. crowded but always seating for 2 people should be no problem. The owner is really nice and friendly and he is there most night. CON: service could and should be much better!!! They take your orders quickly and food did not take too long, but the attitude is leave-me-be! with them and a frown on their face at all times....totally uncool. Otherwise a great bar to have a drink !

The Owner is nice, why cant he hire good staff?

As a neighborhood regular, I used to happen into SIP whenever I wanted a relaxed atmosphere and a sophisticated drink. Around November of 2007, SIP changed its menu and adjusted some of its decor. The place still looks clean and nice, but is not more brightly lit and kind of kitchy-feeling removing the atmosphere that once drew me to the restaurant. Also displeasing is the wait staff that could not be bothered to get off their cell phones nor give any pleasantries.

My friend and I just went in there tonight to give the place another try. We were greated with an eager waitress, a good start, and given menus right away. We had just come from dinner and only wanted cupcakes and milk. Apparently annoyed that we would not be spending a lot of money, she rolled her eyes and huffed away. Coming back 5 whole minutes later, she let us know that they did not serve de-caffe coffee, which my friend had ordered. The cupcake, in plain view, was still not being plated.

We decided that we did not need the pretension and bitchiness of the waitress. While leaving, the owner (I knew who he was before) seemed concered. Perhaps he noticed our poor treatment? I think we should have said something, but perhaps this note will discourage people from venturing there in the first place.
