    I love this bar. Great snacks (meat and cheese), great happy hour, and GREAT staff. I hung out here alone with a book the other evening and it was lovely - not many places can pull that off!

    One of my favorite, if not my favorite, wine bars in the city. They'll open any bottle of wine as long as you get at least two glasses. The cheese selection is never disappointing!

    Had a great Malbec and a zillion cheeses. The truffle toast is a winner but be warned, it is super messy. Good prosciutto as well and really nice bartenders, will definitely go back soon!

    The handmade chocolates are a great treat. You can't go wrong with the caramel sea salt and the Aztec spiced chocolate is fabulous as well. Oh and the wine selection is also fantastic.

    Happy hour: $8/glass, but only 3 choices. A solid $12 charcuterie board is available too. Service: Meh. They gave the last of our wine to a random girl beside us & removed our food before we finished.

    Don’t feel overwhelmed by the 150-deep wine list at this dark-wooded bar. Approach it with confidence and be ready to mingle over cheese, chocolates, and charcuteries with a Bordeaux!

    The most perfect place. I'm in love. Amazing cheeses, staff was so friendly we kept getting refills for our plate and just great atmosphere.

    Great wine list & house red. Roomano (hard, orange, nutty) is a favorite off-the-menu cheese.

    Kick ass wine bar with stellar happy hour (40 bucks gets you a btl of wine & plenty of snacks). $1 oysters Sunday & Wednesday (arrive early, they run out)

    One of the best wine bars in NYC. You'll never go wrong taking your date here. Order a Pinot Noir, sit back, and enjoy the surroundings.

    Tried the whole eel - quite good! Very different at least, not the usual Japanese prepared eel. Great playlist here, some of my favorite indie songs

    Good wines, but felt ignored by the sommeliers. I enjoy learning about different wines while tasting. Oh well, there are many other wine bars in manhattan.

    Enjoy wines around an oval bar. Happy hour has $8 glasses of wine, beer for $7-$14 and cheese plates for $12. Go for the wine!

    Great HH deals on a glass of red or white wine. Also, a very reasonable selection of charcuterie as a snack!

    Prosciutto a disappointment. Jerky like chunks instead of the melt in your mouth goodness I, personally, was hoping for. But the lovely staff and service make everything okay. Vino is bueno also.

    Vera is a wonderful vinho verde on the happy hour menu. Order it anytime, though. Very effervescent and light.

    Prepare to walk a bit from the train station but on a nice spring/summer day, it's a lovely walk. About 8-10 blocks from the closest train station, nice vibe, fresh cheese/meat platters. Lighting meh.
