Cool spot – Cool wine spot on 2nd ave. They have a huge selection from all regions
Way Overpriced – We went to Winebar with a gift certificate. I looked at the menu online and it looked pretty good. Turns out though, they no longer have a filet mignon au poive for $19. They no longer have ANY of the entrees on the menu on their website. What they DO have, is a personal pan pizza for $19. They can call it a "flatbread" all they want, but I know a pizza when I see one. Now I do have to say that the cheese sampler and lamb en croute we got as appetizers were delicious. But after that, four people each got a $19 pizza. You have to ask yourself, if you went out for dinner, got four individual wafer-thin pizzas with no sauce, and then got a check for $76, would you be satisfied? If you're just going to drink wine, well, they have a long list, pricey, but I guess that's to be expected. The service was meh. The staff is very friendly, but kind of aloof. Also each dish came out one at a time with about 5 minutes in between. Steer clear unless you're just drinking.
Great Girls Night Out – The winebar is small enough to be cozy, and large enough to avoid that cramped feeling you often suffer through when you frequent popular Manhattan spots. We were a group of six (girls night out), and it was everyone's first time. We arrived at 7:30 on a Saturday evening, and stayed for 2.5 hours. No one in my group is a connoisseur of wine, but we all drink it, and we like it. ;-). Initially we all ordered different wine by the glass, but later ordered two bottles: a Bordeaux, and cabernet/merlot blend or something like that...
We also ordered a cheese plate (excluding goat cheese because I don't like it) which contained a variety of hard, soft, and pleasantly pungent cheeses, and a flatbread (crustini...?) with Prosciutto and some kind of fig spread, it was all very good.
It was mildly noisy; none of us had to scream to be heard, but it was busy with the sounds of people having a good time...if you know what I mean. Positive vibes. No problems with waiters. Nice not stuffy. If you like stuffy, i.e., you nose high in the air, you will not like this place, or in today's lingo...keep it real.
a cool place to hang out – excellent service!
the server really knows what he's talking about.. i don't hahaha
my cousin and her french boyfriend are the ones doing the talking and the choosing :p
but it was perfect!
a little pricy but perfect!
Nothing Special About This Place – The service sucked, the bartender didn't have a clue what he was pouring. He wasn't sure if his work place was even Mediterranean? He gave us the wrong wine on top of it. The wine list sucked, nothing special about it. I'm not a wine expert, but I know uninteresting wine when I see it. The 40 choices of wine was intimidating because nothing struck our fancy. Our lamb was too salty and bloody, bloody. We asked for medium rare, but that was ridiculous. I lost my appetite.
Great Wine List, Relaxed Atmosphere, Good Service – Great spot to hang out with friends or go on a date... very low-key and relaxed. Try the pizza and ask a bartender or server about their wine selection. They will be happy to help you choose. A bit pricey (cheapest glass of wine is $9), but at least you're getting good wine.
Perfect Little Wine Bar, Friendly and Accommodating – Randomly found this place with a friend one night. Met the owner and he basically chose our wine and food for us - and it was awesome. A great find.
Winebar for wine lovers not for w-iners – went to winebar last week for my birthday, as a return customer never disapointed, it feels good to see familiar waiter's faces ,go there, have fun , nice decor and great food and music, very romantic, relax and take your time and enjoy your wine, but don't be like one of the reviewers before to drink your wine in ten minutes ,wine is not a soda, but, anyway you do that and you have a seriuos drinking problem , but winebar is about great wines and for seriuos wine loverswho appreciate wines , good food and relax atmosphere, i'll come back
A Measured Response – There seems to be a good amount of negative reviews focused on the poor service at Wine Bar. I have been here a couple of times with friends, and will agree with other posters that the waiters are inattentive. However, keep in mind that the place is very small and to call over a waiter does not require more than maybe motioning a hand. Also, previous posters complaining fail to offer a suitable replacement for a "wine bar" in the same neighborhood, which is devoid of many places classy. If you don't like wine bar there is bar veloce in 11 st and 2nd which might even offer more of a selection and lively vibe. However, for what it is , wine bar does a good job of serving up the pinot.
