                                      We had a reservation for 745; got there, and they told us last call was 815pm since they had a party. Thanks for NOT telling us in advance!! They blamed open table, but they could have called to tell us so we could go elsewhere. Drinks were good, but when i ordered the same drink again it came clear whereas the original was cloudy; asked the bartender why (the server didn’t notice it was clear i guess) and he said they forgot the citrus. So fail for them. Too bad, it looked pretty nice.

                                      We made a reservation for 2 one and half month earlier with request of sitting at sofa table and yet we still only get normal table because we're party of two. There were many parties of 3 sitting at sofa tables without reservations. We asked if we could get a sofa table if we waited for a while and got negative answer. We came to NY for travel and wanted to have a great night so we booked early, but it didn't happen. Atmosphere was great, not a fan of how the staffs dealt with reservations.

                                      Not the best, not the worst. CDB cocktails were good, but nothing to write home about, pretty pricey for the portions you get. Probably would not go back

                                      Only had drinks since the kitchen wasn’t fully opened. The HH drinks were good. The place is pretty small and dark but I’d entertain the place again if in the area.

                                      The pipe from the upstairs bathroom was leaking onto our table. Therefore dirty water got on me and my drink. When I called the waitress over about the water, she and the bartender got flustered and didn't know what to do because the manager wasn't there. There was water pouring onto the light, which could've started a fire. Instead of shutting down the light, they moved everyone to the other side of the bar. Just wasn't a good vibe for after work drinks. Won't be going there again.

                                      I took some clients here for drinks and snacks after work. The drinks are great, and the apps were delish, especially the rocket pizza. Paté also yummy. It's loud, but not so much you can't hear each other. Cool atmosphere, not uber-hip, but hip enough.

                                      It took over half an hour for our drinks to arrive, and they had the front door open all night on a COLD evening. The place was freezing. The hostess was wearing a parka, if that helps put things in perspective. Drinks were solid and ambiance is great, just not keen on the crazy long wait and the temps.

                                      The atmosphere is nice. It got a little loud as it got busier being Saturday evening and all. Was a bit disappointed they did nothing for the birthday we were celebrating and had noted on our reservation. Food took a while to come out. Drinks were good though.

                                      Cold and gloomy place, basically a hole in the wall that leads into a basement. Servers were so-so, but nice enough. Good for a date if you like dark places that try to appear cool

                                      Was the better experience for My husband and I, we were in our honeymoon and some friends told us about The Chef Lucas Cerqueira and the restaurant The Ship... For our hapiness we had The BEST dinner in NYC, The food is awesome, we ate absolutely everything, we really appreciate! Everybody need to go there and try on The food! The service is excelent, Estela attented us very well and is very sympatic and Jamie was very adorable and fun!

                                      From the outside it doesn’t look great but we had researched the place but our visit to NYC. It’s a really good bar and I would highly recommend visiting this bar. Staff were friendly and prompt and our cocktails were very nice!

                                      When I approached the bar with a friend we were not greeted instead the bartender placed a menu that looked like a piece of arts and craft paper (with no indication that it was a menu) on the counter... After about 5 mins I kindly asked for service only to have the bartender point to the paper he placed on the bar. Thanks dude. We proceed to order drinks and eventually we were seated. After dinner the waiter didn’t come by with the check for 20 mins...we eventually gave in and asked the hostess for help. Overall the food and drinks were great. Unfortunately the service gets one star.

                                      Kalbu sliders is a must-try! And that painkiller was the best cocktail I have ever had.... very generous with the alcohol. Will be going back next time I’m in Manhattan!

                                      Very dark, but I suppose that’s the vibe they’re going for. Service was excellent, but menu was overpriced. Doubtful to return
