Great wine, bad food. Poor service. Mandatory maximum gratuity put on the bill. What a waste of money.

This is a lovely little wine bar. We enjoyed a nice glass of chardonnay out in the sun after a long walk through the area. It is really a lovely area to walk through.

Service is slow for food and cocktails other than wine. Servers need to let people know when food will be delayed and do a better job managing tables so that parties can receive their orders in a more timely fashion. I waited over half an hour for a margarita.

The drinks came quite quickly, however we waited forever for a Quiche, Crostini & Brezels. The appraised Bavarian mustard was just regular mustard and I do not think they ever have seen how crostini and quiche really look like...would not recommend this restaurant again. Staff did not like our feedback at all and was not friendly...

Really nice cool little wine bar and cafe. Excellent selection of wines and really nice food. The burger and truffled mac 'n' cheese was excellent. Worth a visit for a nice relaxed lunch!

The idea is 100%, the execution in the 90's. I had two glasses of wine both nice selections and reasonable ($10 and $11). They have cheese and meats and a few small plates. We got the shaved brussel sprout salad - perfect. White bean and lemon crostini - the topping was too cold and overwhelmed the bread that was sliced... More

The service was great. Mac and cheese was tasty. Wine choices were good and while I misread the menu, the chef made my request and it may be a new addition to the regular menu. All that I shared with raved about the maple bourbon bread pudding with a bacon cage. Yumm

After walking around in Brooklyn, I stopped by this place for lunch. The waitress was delightful. The food (I ordered a bacon and cheese burger) was very good (especially the homemade crisps!). The place is small, quite cozy and has large windows, perfect for watching people passing by.

Stumble across this place after a long, hot walk all the way from Central Park...and it was great. We popped in for a light lunch and a beer and were not disappointed. Very welcoming waiter/bar tender and a very pleasant atmosphere at lunch time. There was a larger party in for lunch and the waiter was distracted and forgot to... More
