Vino Levantino Ratings and Reviews

We were excited to attend this restaurant for Father's Day, as we had to be in Central Park a few hours before. We were a party of 11, and I was pleased when the restaurant called me a day before to confirm.
The place is small, but cute inside. They presented us with a "brunch" menu which is about 12 different options on it . You did not have the option to order you did not have the option to order it off their larger menu, but that was fine... They had some interesting choices that we were looking forward to ..... And that's when it all went wrong.
They were "out" of about half of the choices... And didn't even have some basic things. For example, they advertise a Norwegian Benedict (with Smoked Salmon) but was out of Salmon, and offered Bacon instead. And they did not have three of four signature items. Why bother?
They Charged me 8.00 for a small dish of Hummus, and then 5.00 dollars for some pita to go with it...
And, considering we were virtually the only people in the restaurant, The service was slow and matter-of-fact. As a matter of goodwill, they should have offered to compensate for some of our bill, but did not have the common sense to do so.
I am sure this place is great for drinks and a Saturday night gathering, but has no business offering a Sunday brunch.
Pleasant little place on a side street.
Pleasant, small, hidden. some outdoor seating (6 tables) but seating is close to street - nothing to look at - but still nice. good menu, not expensive, nice looking bar inside. nice service. near Symphony space so handy. not noisy!!! thank Goodness. a little gem.

Tried the falafel (very good) and the tuna tartar on a bed of avocado, something of mash where the flavor the tuna and the avocado got lost. $14 for a small glass of albariño seemed excessive. Service was very good.

The setting, menu, service are all commendable. The wine is always perfectly chilled and high quality. My only complaint is that they turn the lights down very low in the evening and I can't appreciate my meal or read the menu without a flashlight. I'd rather enjoy the surroundings with a little more light.

it used to be a neighborhood gem but recently it is just a disappointment. The staff knows nothing about the menu, they mislead when asked for assistance with the wine list and the dishes that I regularly ordered have been changed to the detriment - a real shame that it has deteriorated so quickly.
