    went with a friend for happy hour, unfortunately, happy hour is only at the bar! no happy hour drinks if you have a table which sucked because there were no wines by the glass under $10.00 on the regular menu. but the food menu was pretty good. calamari was personal favorite.

    Great happy hour selection and prices. I ordered the fish and chips which was cooked and seasoned to perfection. So happy I tried this place. This is such a hidden gem to me, hidden away on the second floor. Up the stairs you go, and it's such an amazing surprise when you come into this awesome wine bar with a huge wine wall. So cool!

    We chose a quiet Monday evening after the July 4th weekend and got a quiet table. The background music was soft, but later the volume went up, which reminded me of many reviewers saying it was loud. I could see that with the way they had the volume up on a very quiet evening. The list of wine by the glass is larger than most. The pour is fine. Prices are OK. Very good fries, large decent beet salad, special cucumber soup was good. They had good AC, and the decor is simple showcasing all the wines on the walls. The service was fine but wish he could provide more wine info when we asked. Tuna tartar was swimming in this sweet sauce. I would come back to try more wine and food since I live nearby, but the noise would be a huge concern.

    The wine list is great and it's nice to have so many choices for by-the-glass. My friend and I ordered the tempura green beans to start which were yummy albeit on the greasy side. Our server did not check on us after bringing us this dish, when we finally flagged him down again we ordered a plate of 3 cheeses and 2 meats. These were all good but again, our server never checked on us...even though we both had empty wine glasses. We would have both ordered another glass of wine but instead decided to leave to go somewhere where we wouldn't have to wave our hands around in order to spend more money in the establishment.

  • WAY TOO LOUD. Impossible to talk.

    Dined on 6/26/2014
    Once the young, after-work crowd arrived -- mostly in groups, mostly young women -- the place was overwhelmingly LOUD. It was impossible to talk as everyone around us kept talking louder and louder and LOUDER. It was nuts. We gave up after first round of starters -- and went around the corner to Tarralucci e Vino. We managed to have a nice conversation without screaming at each other to be heard -- until the jackhammer started in the street. Guess it wasn't our night for quiet.

    The service was slow and not attentive. We waited for 45 minutes for food and add on 20 minutes for our appetizers. The host provided free drinks but it could not help with her lack of attentiveness. Dinner arrived after 30 minutes and we were so hungry that we scarfed down our food. The place was not crowded but under-staffed in the front and back of the house. Since I have eaten many times before I was so surprised that my friend's b-day celebration was ruined. I don't plan to return.

    Food is just so-so, service is not great, and the scene is pretty lame. The wine was pricey but good. Highlight of the evening was the dessert of peanut butter cookie ice cream sandwiches. They were outstanding and probably the only thing that would bring me back.

    Made a reservation for dessert at 9:30pm on a Friday night, just to have a night cap. I thought the wine prices were very good for NYC, they were full, but it wasn't overcrowded. We ordered a simple ice-cream sandwich to share, and for the price we got more than we expected (however nothing went to waste ;)) It was a great late night find.

    We came here with a group of 7 for happy hour. The happy hour was very limits, 1 white wine selection, 1 type of red, 1 type of beer (I dont remember if actual hard liquor was on the list as well). Regardless the happy hour wine selections were poor. We ended up buying the regular $14 glass of wine. The food selection was good and tasty. This is a good after work spot to meet up with friends for casual drinks and dining. The host was very patient with us, we asked her to move our dinner reservation to a later time, which she had no problem doing (it wasnt too busy on a Wed night). We didnt have to wait to long for food either which was nice.

    I went this past week to Wined Up with some friends. The waiter and bus boys were constantly hovering over us and asking if we were done. Then when they brought the check the waiter literally stood next to our table waiting for us to pay. It was so aggravating. Definitely won't be returning.

    Much noiser than the last time I've been here two years ago. Last time around I recall a more intimate and romantic setting but it has changed to a noisy bar environment where everyone is seated in tables. The wine list was what I remembered as recommendable and still is. Besides the change in noise environment everything was noteworthy. I would recommend groups of four to go and enjoy instead of couples desiring a romantic moment

    I was excited to try that place because of the wine. I've been there with 2 friends. It is over noisy, we had to yell to talk and it wasn't easy to understand each other. The wine by the glass menu is poor. The food is ok, we shared a plate of fried calamari that was too dry (May have been reheated...), then I had the duck breast, and it was ok. I don't think I'll go back.

    I was there for dinner on a Saturday night when the place was not very crowded. The music was ridiculously loud and not particularly good. It seemed to be playing in a loop and was ridiculously loud making conversation difficult. The food was fine but the music made the dinner much less enjoyable. I would not recommend the hummus but the rest was tasty.

    This place is absolutely gorgeous and the service was very attentive, however that's where the story ends Im afraid. The music was horrific, 1980's R&B sounding, the food lackluster and there just wasn't enough "buzz" around the place, never got the crowd we were expecting. The wine list was also disappointing. There is so much potential here, it's like the caterpillar waiting to become the butterfly, they just need to adjust a few things.

    We had a large group dinner at Wined Up recently. We loved the oval table that we sat at. It allowed everyone to talk to one another and not feel cut off at the end of the table. We received excellent service. Several members of our party were late and we didn't receive any pressure to start ordering. We ordered a wide variety of food and just about everyone loved their meals. Our only complaint was that the music was a bit too loud. The place wasn't crowded so there was no need for the volume to be so high. Overall, a great night out!

    My friend recommend Wined Up to me and I am really glad she did. While I only had the pizza there, it was really good. And it was reasonably priced. Service was great and I literally made the reservation 20 minutes before we went and they had it right up on the computer when I walked in. Getting seated was a breeze. The menu selection was great and again the pizza was really delicious.

    Have come a few times for happy hour & finger food (half-price wines by the glass - awesome). Decided to come for dinner with a group of friends on a Sat night. Hardly anyone in the place. Fridays are packed, but Saturdays are strangely quiet. Really like it here - attentive service, no attitude, good wines, good food. The menu has nice variety, and everything is fresh. Only complaint is wines by the glass are pricey ($15), and lighting was so low I kept thinking I had sunglasses on.

    Wine Up is a great place for happy hour and food in Gramercy. I live close by and every time I take friends here they love it. Good selection of wines and the menu is the same as Punch downstairs, but has a few extra fun things like pizzas and small pasta dishes. Blue crab fritters are amazing and so are the fish tacos.

    Amazing food and wine. Waiter was really helpful in selecting wine pairings and gave us generous samples to help us decide. But the food was the best part. It's the same menu as the Punch downstairs, but they added a cheese selection, which is completely worth your while - try the Tallegio! The perfect place for a date, a 3 course meal, and a bill around $100. I'd definitely go back, I just hope that the mahi with mustard sauce is still a special.
