I overall had a great experience, from the food to the glass of Sohovingoun Blanc that I had - everything was delicious and overall a GREAT time! I definitely recommend the duck tacos as an app! I’ve never had that before and we tried it on a whim, so so good! Service was great too, my only minor complaint is that we waited a while for some pita to get to our table. We asked for pita after our hummus plate came out and it didn’t come out until the very end of the night.. I guess it’s not really a huge complaint, but we thought it was so odd that something like pita would take the longest of anything to order haha.

All in all a truly fantastic meal.. would recommend the spot to ANYONE!

Well, the food was good, the wine was good BUT The Barrel Room was described as quiet and a place to enjoy a relaxing meal. It was definitely not quiet and they served food with a pace that would win an Olympic medal (our main dish came out a few minutes after our appetizer and we had more that half the appetizer left). After desert though it seemed that everyone was left alone (not a good counterbalance).

Good food on a damp, chilly day along with friendly service.

The dishes were not delivered with something detailed on the menu, so we tried to get the attention of the waiters to bring it. No waiter came over, even though the restaurant was empty; they were chatting. We had to call to someone to ask, and they took an unreasonably long time to return. And, they didn't even bring the correct item. Shockingly bad service for a slow time. The food was okay, but the starter's portion was way too small for the price.

The City winery is a great venue and has for the most part a nice and enthusiastic staff that is willing to help, assist, or accommodate patrons. I liked the place over all. The food was not what I expected. The humus was average, the pitas were stale. The Duck tacos had no taste and prepared like pulled pork. the Lamb was prepared like a steak and if I was blind folded for a tasting challenge, I would have thought it was a steak. It did not taste like lamb what so ever. I finished my meal with an espresso and Crème Brulee, which was not creamy at all but had more of a cottage cheese consistency. I was disappointed buy the food, but the staff was nothing but nice and accommodating. The vibe was very chill and the music was perfect.

Food was mediocre, especially brunch fried chicken and waffles. Chicken had two wing pieces and two regular size drumsticks; hardly enough for the price and no white meat. Waffles were to have tasso in them; if they did it was untasteable. Finally, syrup was not offered in plentiful way, only one small tin cup per meal. Price/Value/Taste ratio was way off. Not going here again for brunch.

We went for an early brunch. The restaurant was quiet, service was great, nice ambiance, but food was very sub-par. I had the Spinach Benedicte and my husband had the Salmon Benedicte, so can only judge those dishes. Would probably give it another chance, but would not recommend it.

Eggs benedict were overcooked, and instead of a traditional hollandaise sauce they served it with a plain old butter sauce. Nothing special.

Waiter was a little scattered. She forgot about us and someone else filled in
