Nice and hip wine bar. Friendly staff.

The only thing I'd flag is that the seats at all the tables are bar stools (trendy and fine) but I prefer a backrest when sitting.

The wine selection was very good. We went for Valentine's Day and not the best place for that. It was very difficult to have a quiet conversation. Even though the restaurant was not full we were seated right next to another couple who we could hear more than each other. The host was trying to be so attentive he constantly paced back and forth past our table. If you are going with a group is flexible on where to sit then this restaurant is good. Probably better during the nice weather because there is outdoor seating. Our server was very attentive. The food was good especially the flat bread. Cheese plate - cheese was good but presentation wasn't up to New York standards

Everything was spectacular! I paid for the four course meal and loved every palate bursting minute if it! I dream about their lamb pasta and the steak was omg! Perfection! I'm going to go again. They had the most shockingly delicious red wine I've ever tasted with a peppery after taste and the figs in the Starter course were amazing. Ive never tasted figs so fresh and mouth wateringly sweet. Everyone was inviting, funny and friendly. I can't wait for another chance to go back.

We had a fantastic experience at Winebar to celebrate a friend's birthday with a group of fifteen people on Saturday afternoon! The food and drinks were delicious, the space was lovely and cozy, and the staff were extremely accommodating and kind. This is a great spot for group parties, for any sort of special occasion, or just for a quick romantic drink.

The service isn't too friendly, they kinda ignore you in this cool way.... but it was fine! The waiter just expected that everyone has had grilled calamari, instead of the tradition fried. Then when I questioned it his response was,"no this is delicious! you will love!" Like he was saying, "Don't be silly"... He was right! It was delicious so the snooty demeanor was fine, because the food was great!
