I really wanted to like this place. My husband and I had been tirelessly working all day (well, actually non-stop for days) on a huge project we were launching for our nonprofit to help the homeless, including putting together 150 backpacks to give out. So, I was looking forward to a relaxing and nice dinner.

And, really, that's what this place SHOULD have been.

But, for me, service and atmosphere are as important as the meal.

Now, I preface this by saying, I am not, and never have been a jealous person. Quite the opposite. I find it flattering when guys find my husband attractive. It's often cute. He's adorable. So, when both waiters (yes, we had two for some reason ... ) flirted with him, and gave him a little attention it was cute and charming.

BUT, it didn't stop there. For all intense purpose, I seemed not to exist at all. Everytime they came to the table, they completely ignored me. It is rude, and bad service.

For instance, I ordered the ginger-garlic shrimp. It was awful. It was rubbery and hard to chewy and really bad. So, I tried flagging them down to no avail. (Mind you the place was pretty empty.) Jayson barely even looked their way, and boom, they were there.

I try explaining the issue and blank face. Jayson explained it, and they were apologetic, to him. Hello, it was my order. This went on all night.

I literally sat with two empty water glasses for 15 minutes, waiting for a glass of ice that I asked for. It was only after Jayson asked for me about the water and ice, that they got it, and then apologized to him, not me.

It not only RUINED dinner for me, but did the OPPOSITE of relaxing and calming. I was so irritated when we left. There is no reason ever to treat a diner that way, especially since I was paying the bill.

So, where we probably would have gone back and given it another shot. There's no way I'd ever go back there. In a city with so many other restaurants, a restaurant like this really should do better at giving good service.

Great spot with delicious food, a good wine list and cozy ambiance. The only downside we saw were the noise levels (not sure how much the restaurant can do to control these, but it got very loud).

When I entered the restaurant I was greeted by someone who seated me. Then I sat at my table for more than 10 minutes without anyone coming over to the table. Only when the check was delivered to me did someone actually look at me and smile. A very unfriendly place. Go elsewhere.

GREAT service and food. Chose many appetizers and shared a main dish. Shrimp, lump crab cake, zucchini pancakes, 3 vegetables and shortribs. Wine choice was good. Recommended by Waiter over house wine, gave taste of house wine to make decision.

Great staff and wonderful find. Food was good, we had a great cheese plate with our wine. We were lucky enough to get a quick tour of their basement/wine cellar that is also rented out for small group private parties and events. Would definitely go back!!

Perfect for a small group who have different preferences of food (there’s a little bit of everything on the menu). We loved the beef tacos, “American Burrata,” pasta with shrimp, and custom cheese plate! Originally, we had wanted to do dinner on a rooftop or terrace with it being the first warm day in NYC for a long time, and even though we couldn’t snag a table elsewhere, we thought Wine 30 had a great combination of sophisticated indoor/outdoor seating (the pics don’t do it justice). We would totally go back!

Two friends and I had a Friday dinner in the cozy, heated back garden recently. Our waiter was FANTASTIC! Unfortunately I don’t recall his name, but he was tall, bearded with a German accent. His recommendations were superb, and he was attentive and charming. I had the short ribs, which were melt in your mouth delicious. Both of my friends enjoyed their meals greatly. The chenin Blanc recommended at the bar was crisp and light.
We topped it all off with yummy creme brûlée. Delicious food, expansive wine list and fabulous service. A+

I did really love this place and I do stand by the wine selection and ambiance being great. However for the SECOND time my party was seated at two different tables without the other one being told that we've arrived. I often book reservations for clients and so this is very worrisome, not only that it's happened twice in two weeks but that when I called the host / maitre'd didn't seem that perturbed by the trouble. One of the people in my party this time actually left after thinking they were waiting for someone who didn't show for 20 minutes. Mistakes happen but twice in two weeks without attempting to make up for the error is unacceptable. Beware with making reservations here I'd say.

Wine:30 was a disaster. I made a reservation for New Years Day through Open Table and when we got to the restaurant on time we found Wine:30 CLOSED. And, to add insult to injury, the weather was 16 degrees. Happy New Year?! When I called Wine:30 later in the day I was told they had the reservation but had no plans to be open at that time and could provide no explanation as to why the reservation was accepted. An apology for the error was not offered. Bad, bad, bad. I also sent to an e-mail to Open Table on 1/1/18 about the snafu and still have not heard back from Open Table despite the e-mail I received back that they would answer quickly. To be honest, Wine:30 & Open Table share accountability in this situation. I use Open Table to find trusted restaurants and to guarantee a reservation. I'd honestly like to hear from Wine:30 and Open Table as to why this happened. I also feel customers of Open Table deserve that level of respect.

A google search of the best wine bars in NYC came up and it did not disappoint. We had Brian as our server and he was ON. POINT. He told us about a wine special they had for a Brunello that was getting close to its end of life. We ended up getting 2 bottles and tried all the food recommendations he made too and everything was AMAZING. The short rib was fabulous and even down to the cheese recommendations were awesome. If the weather allows, sit out back, the ambience on the patio is fabulous!
