    I always enjoy having a small plate and some wine at Ardesia. The food is consistently excellent, and the glass-pour wine list is well chosen and relatively well priced. Staff is always friendly--especially important to me, as I often go to Ardesia by myself when my spouse is out of town.

    Searched for tapas restaurants on yelp and this popped up with good reviews, so we went. We were disappointed because it was more like a wine bar, and there was a very small selection of food. But the food we did get was good, especially the gouda cheese with the little Graham cracker. Overall not bad, just not what we expected. And for $50 (no drinks), we didn't get much food at all.

    Sometimes you don't want a full dinner. Sometimes just a fine wine and some great food does the trick. Artesian was the perfect pre-theater place to go.

    I brought my mother to Ardesia for a light post-theater meal. The service was adequate, just a shade inattentive. The food was very good--we had a nice variety of light bites: awesome cheese, nice lamb skewers and shrimp plate, very good deviled eggs. I had checked the menu online the morning we went and was disappointed that some items I was looking forward to, such as the quail eggs, weren't even mentioned on the menu. The wines were good but not great, the deserts were boring and the cookies definitely not worth waiting 20 minutes for, and what's up with no coffee??!! All in all, a nice place to eat nice food on a Sunday afternoon, no real missteps but no wows either.

    As this neighborhood popularity increases, more people will soon learn about this wonderful wine bar. Outdoor tables in the spring/summer surrounded by flower beds and low hedges makes it a wonderful place to sip wine and enjoy delicious small plates. Indoors is quite nice as well with double height ceilings which brings your eye up to the wine bottles which are set perched high above with a catwalk access. You won't be disappointed.

Reservations are a must so you will not be dissapointed during busy times. It is a tasty meal experience to taste different wines by the glass and the portions are perefct for tasting and sharing the different selection such as flank steak, duck, and NY pretzels!

    Ardesia is a classic wine bar. They have a very nice selection of wines, including many selections by the glass, The food was equally as good as the wines. We visited Ardesia early (5:00pm), there were a few tables occupied, but it was mostly empty; thus the noise level was quiet. I am sure that it gets much livelier and louder later in the evening.

Neighborhood is very sketchy (west 50's near 11th Ave.) except for that block, which has been gentrified. Several block walk to public transportation. Will go back.

Saw a Saturday matinee and then walked in around 5pm with no problem finding a table. Server was extremely helpful and pleasant. Loved the shrimp skewers, pork sliders, and beet salad.

    Checked this place out with a friend on a Tuesday night. The atmosphere is the big selling point here, as it is decorated in a modern, chic way with dim lighting. The service was also excellent, as our waiter was able to recommend wines and paired cheeses/meats based on our stated preferences. If you're looking for dinner, this is not the place as there are hardly any "hearty" meal options, but if you're looking for h'ors d'oeuvres and good wine, then you'll like it here. Overall, I'll definitely give it another try and would recommend it to friends.

All were delicious. Great wine selection too. I'll be back when it gets warmer to sit on their lovely outdoor patio!

    We did not realize it was a tapas bar and were a little skeptical at first. We have an irrational dislike of tapas because you are constantly being interrupted you have to be figuring out what is going to be with what, and will you need 3 or 5 dishes...yes irrational. But we picked some great choices and were really pleased. The pulled pork was fabulous and the salads were just perfect. Loved the shrimp with chorizo as well. We most likely would not have gone if we had paid attention to the fact it was a tapas place, but we are really glad we did.
