"Adorable little spot on 2nd avenue. This has become one of my favorite outdoor spots to enjoy a glass of wine and people watch. The food is great/consistent and the sangria selection is huge so you can try something new every time. The service can be slow at times, but it's only a minor gripe as my experiences as a whole have been very positive. Would definitely recommend here for a date."

"This place is basically the definition of a date spot. I went inside to get a glass of wine and sat among a crowded bar. Decided to look at a menu and ordered a turkey panini and the tuna tartare. The panina was good, the tartare was OUSTANDING although a bit pricey. In this case you definitely get what you pay for. I stayed at the bar for a few more drinks and it seemed everyone here was eager to chat with other bar patrons. The manager introduced herself to me and was very hospitable as well. Just a very fun place to be in general and an even better place to meet people."

"Had a great dinner here. Started off with the servers recommendation on a Montepulciano and wow a great wine. Enjoyed it with our dinner which consisted of Lamb Meatballs, Bruschetta, Tuna Tartar, and Panna Cotta for dessert. Enjoyed every bit of it. Server was friendly and knowledgeable. Also, had cocktails with dessert and they have a surprisingly good cocktail list for a Wine bar. Overall good value. Definitely a go to date spot. Will definitely be returning."

"A disappointing experience, except for the guy who waited out table and made our drinks. He was great. And the prices are fine.
But beware: the menu is very limited and the quality of the food is simply not up to New York standards. The music is loud. There's no atmosphere; it's closer to a dive bar than an UES restaurant.
We were the only people there at 7:30. By 8:30, one other couple was sharing the restaurant (all on a Sunday evening). Not surprising, I suppose, but certainly unappetizing."

"Who rates the restaurants
This is s 20 something joint not a great place
Loud, kitchen in dining room that smells. Entire space needs to be painted, polished and re-thought.
This was a beautiful charming wine bar with clean smart design when it first opened."

"My wife loved her tortelli (I would order it too, based on the bite I had) and I also loved my Truffle Mac N Cheese with Prosciutto. The noise level was a little loud, but that's to be expected in a smaller space with tables as close as they are. It's NYC, so what are you going to do? We've been here before for paninis, but glad we came back to try the pasta. Good wine listing as well."
