Basic. Over priced with limited options. Was told a special, ordered it then it wasn't available two minutes later. Waitress behind us bashed her manager to her table and loud enough for half the room to hear. Started raining so all hands were on deck to move people inside, causing a back up on drinks. Waited 15 minutes for a single glass of wine. To say the least, it was not the date night we planned and hoped for out of this restaurant.

The place was almost empty. We made reservations so we could have dinner with friends before the show. We purchased show tickets separately so we decided to eat in the restaurant so we could eat together. The show started at 8pm - we had 7pm reservations and got there early. Apparently the performer requested no table service during the show (good call) so the theater was full of people trying to get their orders in by 7:30pm - so I get that the kitchen was slammed - and crazy slow getting stuff out, BUT - the silverware was dirty, water glass was dirty (as was the replacement), the appetizer was forgotten and we thought they were picking the grapes because the wine service was so slow. The service was very friendly - just not very effective. The food, when it finally arrived was very good. And it is a great place to eat before the show. I'm sure we got them on an off night, but I worked in restaurants for years - this was not well oiled machine.

Had a reservation before a show. Traffic was slow and was going to be 5 minutes late. Called to let them know and was on hold so long I walked in with the call still on hold and caught hostess purposely ignoring phone. On Friday place was half full yet still was seated at a crappy table and squeezed between the few other customers. Ordered apps and dinner only to have all delivered simultaneously. Food was great. Workers are fast food rejects.

We went to the restaurant only. My mom and I came here because we enjoy trying new wines. We got the flight of 4 2oz wines from their winery for $10. We chose "fresh and fruity whites" and they were all delicious.

We also went with their lunch option of half a sandwich and a side salad. Let me say first that I really do not like salads at all... However, their house salad was the best salad I have ever had in my life and I find myself craving it from time to time. I got the turkey sandwich too and it was tasty and filling. This will definitely be at the top of my list when feeling wine-y!

The menu is just all over the place and overpriced for the quality. The wine was good but I paid 50 dollars for a bottle of wine that was 15 dollars in the store. My waiter was nice and the lighting was decent.

Had the worst food. Food was cold (sent it back and it came back cool as in still cold.) The chicken was taste less. The fries were a replica of drum sticks (DRUMLINE 3 anyone?) . Hard and cold. We barely ate anything and still had a $50 bill. The waitress was very nice tho. You don't understand these fries had sharp edges. I poked a hole in the chicken with the fries. ALSO THE CORNBREAD (that was shaped like a biscuit, had the consistency of packed sand, pretending to be a Frisbee ) HAD MOLD ON IT! Did y'all chef call out tonight? The waitress took it away before I can get footage!

This was my first time as the City Winery and my party and I attended during brunch. Our server was pleasant, however he did not know the menu or the rules of what could be substituted etc as he typically does not work that shift. The food was decent, however I ordered toast and the establishment did not have any jelly.

The venue is nice and food reasonably priced, therefore I would try again for dinner next time in hopes of having a better experience.

We enjoyed a nice meal before the late night show at same location. While this isn't a spot for serious foodies, we will be back for another event.

I've been to City Winery a few times and have received different levels of service. Sometimes the service is excellent but sometimes it is really lacking. It just depends on who you get. The food and wine are what bring me back. Hopefully, they just need some more time to perfect their process.

The food was ok at best. The service wasn’t poor but definitely could be improved.

We didn't have the best experience.

First we had an issue using our OpenTable points as the restaurant initially wouldn't take it even though that is how we booked our reservation - eventually they accepted it, but I had to explain the OpenTable process to the manager, which was sort of embarrassing as this was our anniversary. She was nice enough, but it interrupted our dinner a couple of times trying to figure it out.

Our appetizers came out lightening fast, which we were pleasantly surprised about, but then our server told us that our food would likely come out at different times, which we thought was a strange comment to make but got us thinking that this feels more institutional in nature like they have most of their food waiting for the masses, except for things like fried chicken that you just can't have sitting under a heat lamp. The food was just ok, nothing to write home about.

Lastly, our waitress put our neighboring table's bill on our tab, which made for a sad ending to our dining experience. Fortunately, the real reason we were here was to hear the live music downstairs, which turned out to be a lot of fun. I guess it made up for the bad taste that was left in our mouth, but we won't be back for the dining experience, just the live music.
