Where do you go when you bring together a wine PR person, two wine students and a winemaker? You need to find a spot that can bring out their Geekiness as well as provide service of a knowledgeable staff. That’s what you get here. We were greeted immediately, were provided with menus and when we asked for recommendations were given great ones. The location of the restaurant is in the middle of residential area so it is nice and quiet. There is patio seating as well as inside. We enjoyed the patio and never felt forgotten. We will all be back

Service was rushed and absent, meat on charcuterie plate was basically the same as what you got at a grocery store. Was expecting thin sliced meat. Would not recommend.

Great wine list! We had the Argentinian pinot noir and it was delicious. As for the food, we ordered a cheese and charcuterie platter but it was really small for the price hence my 4 stars as an overall experience.
The waiters were professional and not overbearing. Will definitely go back and try something else on the menu so maybe it will be a 5 stars the next time!

Wonderful meal with great service and food. We got a call the day before our reservation noting that they had a private party until 6 so we agreed to move our reservation back the 15 minutes. I made sure to note we had an 8 o’clock show to get too and they said they would make sure we were marked as pre theater to ensure a faster experience.

Once there, it was a bit loud as the party wound down but it didn’t feel obnoxious- you aren’t going to maintain calm when a party books out an entire wine bar. We got two excellent glasses of sparkling wine, an exceptional cheese and charcuterie board, two more great and complex glasses of wine, and some small plates that were delicious. We were full so we skipped desert. When they brought the check, they apologized for the noise of the party (which wasn’t needed) and wished us a happy anniversary - for the occasion, they even comped our last round, which was a really nice touch.

Coming in from out of town, it’s always nice to find places that take their work seriously and want to make customers happy. We try to get to NYC regularly, so this place definitely earned some repeat customers!!

Perfect pre-theater place for drinks and yummy well-made small plates. Helpful staff. We sat outside next to the fresh basil plants used in the drinks and food - an unexpected treat in the middle of mid-town Manhattan.

This was my first time in Ardesia- I've lived in Hell's Kitchen for over two decades and was happy to discover this gem of a wine-bar off the beaten track. It has great ambience and a nice range of wines, cocktails and bar menu- all reasonably priced. We ate inside due to the humidity but the outdoor area looks lovely. I'll be back for sure.

It's a pretty little place and VERY crowded with a great vibe.
We only went for drinks and sat on these very comfy couches. Very nice
Drinks were great. Had a pretzel and must say as a life long New Yorker they were very good.
Can't wait to go back again and have some food. And more drinks :)

Loved my wine and appetizer. Furniture needs replacing or a little TLC, and environment is very important to me. But the service was great, kind and fun people. Friend and I had a chill catch up. Enjoyed!

The wait staff was horrible in attending our table and the place was not busy. My date was upset by being ignored for 15minutes. The wait staff needs to be changed. They racially profiled patrons.

It was my first time there and I would go back! I was with a friend and we had a show to catch. Once we told our waitress, she had everything out fast and we were able to enjoy the drinks and food and see the show on time.

We sat in the lounge area and it was the perfect, tucked away spot for after work drinks! The prices for food (like the salad my friend got) can be a little bit high for the amount that you get, but the quality is all very high and the drink selection is thoughtful and varied. I got a selection of cheese and charcuterie and it was delicious and just the right amount of food to go with a drink or two (and the prices on those were pretty on par with anywhere else). The service was attentive while never rushing us, which is always a plus.

Wonderful tapas-croquettes of the day, smoked chesse shrimp skewer were perfectly prepared & so flavorful. Raddichio & apple salad came with a zesty dressing that complemented the ingredients. The only fail was devilled eggs-they had took much mayo? which made the filling too soft & it needed some heat. We paired with Rioja reserva that was .

I have gone to Ardesia a few times because friends live across the street, but it generally hasa been to grab a glass of wine or three and go. This time I arranged and evening with my three adult nieces to have a dinner snack and some wine and it truly did not disappoint. The wines we had were lovely and the food was quite superb. Now that I live closer as well, I will search it out more often.

Wonderfully delicious small dishes. The wine is great also but the pours are short and although they have appropriate glasses when you order a bottle, they give an all purpose glass when you order by the glass. Booo.

We had a great pre-theater dinner and everything was delicious. We ordered charcuterie and our waiter brought the wrong meat and they quickly replaced it free of charge which was really nice.

Menu was limited, wine pours were pricey, and the service was lack-luster. Had we sat at the bar or taken advantage of happy hour it probably would have been a better value, but overall not a great experience.
