Waste of Time and Money – Before you have even finished your first drink, the waitstaff will begin to hover nearby and interrupt conversations to try to sell you another. Mind you, I'm well versed and very astute with the bar scene, but the tactics used here are curiously crass. I go there to laugh at those bartenders who think they are pulling the wool over your eyes with their hackneyed utterances. Joke is right. The harder they try and be a "friend," the more they're adding insult to injury. This place is the epitome of disingenuous. If there was a zero rating, I'd fill that one in.
Best Crepes in NYC – Great atmosphere, great crepes and great beer. Very trendy. Reasonable. Service was fantastic and polite!
Really expensive, flattest beer ever. – I like the atmosphere, music, and at first the bartender was really nice. But, apparently in Eastern Europe (where he was from) they don't understand the concept of the customer is always right. My boyfriend ordered a Spaten on tap, it was really flat. He told the bartender and the guy tasted it for himself, then checked the keg and said "this is how Spaten tastes" and so besides not just giving him anothr beer, he was out to prove him wrong. Then I got a Stella and it was actually worse. It was the flattest beer ever and they both cost us $6.00, which is a lot for beer. Bad customer service!!
Cool off at this dark, delish wine bar. – The Setting
A pleasing stop for wine, crepes and a cigarette break, Shade remains remarkably subdued despite its corner location off Washington Square Park. The black vinyl loveseats against the wall may not exactly be comfy, but the unfinished brick walls, low light and French conversation in the background enhance the intimacy of the place.
The bar offers a fine selection of crisp white wines and hearty reds, with soups, salads and sweet or savory crepes (containing your choice of three fillings).
Low key, comfortable, and fun – It's a cute place. Unpretentious, not crowded, not loud... it's a good place for a date, to catch up with friends, to just spend some time at a bar without being caught up in a going out frenzy. Low key, decent drinks, and crepes (!). A staple in my bar scene.
Friendly Staffs – The place looks pretentious but the staffs and usuals there are very down to earth. Nice atmosphere without the wannabe crowd. The beer and wine selections are not the best in the city but acceptable. The only thing I dislike of this place is the no credit card acceptance except American Xpress.
Shade is a great place to have a fantastic glass of wine and meet some really interesting people. The waitstaff are always nice and ready to serve.
Great Crepes – Best time to go is on a weekday afternoon when the place is empty, service is swift and the crepes are wonderful! Desert crepes are a must.
Friendly Manami & Co. – I like this place because: it is cozy, not over crowded, not too loud, has lovely and friendly bartenders that have been working there for years, which says something about the place, and because they serve tasty crepes.
For the ladies: clean bathrooms (2 of them).
Not that great – I've known this place a long time, and had no idea that it called itself a wine bar. It's not one. It's more like an uncomfortable pub that serves sandwiches. And the staff is kind of a joke.
