Hip wine bar with biodynamic options. I struggled with giving this more stars. It would hands down receive 5 stars for the wine, but the combination of food and service downgraded it. This is a outstanding place to go if you are shopping in SoHo and need a glass of wine (or a bathroom break with a glass of wine) between 5 and 7 pm. The wine and snacks are interesting and extremely affordable during happy hour - $5 for each snack with an asterisk or $20 for all 5 of them and $5 off any glass of wine (except the mystery glass). We thoroughly enjoyed a glass of Spanish orange wine, a Rhone white blend, and a Chablis, along with fennel-spiced olives, salt & vinegar pistachios, and asparagus with wood ear mushrooms and sabayon. The pecorino and black pepper popcorn (a bit chewy) and the meat and cheese were perfectly fine. The Calendar Island mussels were too large in size (huge!) and only so-so in flavor. We actually left half of them. The service was slow, traffic from the Holland Tunnel entrance was loud, and the quiet seat in the window loses its privacy when someone is seated outside inches from you (with a window separating). We will definitely go back at some point but will only order wine and snacks.
This review is for 3.5 stars. I came here for late night drinks. Relatively crowded on a Friday night at 11pm. They close at 2am which is nice for a nightcap. Wine by the glass menu is actually quite small considering this is their gimmick. Less than 10 reds on their menu ranging from $13-22. Pretty affordable for the area and bottles cheaper than a typical restaurant. When ordering I did have some complaints of the service. When asking about the wines tastes and similar varieties (as the one I wanted I had never heard the type) she just said fruity. I would like her to appeal to my level of knowledge of wine (which isn't much) and kind of dumb it down to compare to a very easy to find variety. Also, for my second glass, when I said I wanted something bigger in taste, of course she pushed me to the most expensive. Not much of a dig into what I was looking for, just the most expensive. The wine was good and the ambiance was dark and very French, but I thought the waiters could do better to teach rather than only serve when a place is so niche as this. Wine servings were small though and very measured. They also have food but it's very cheese/meat plate heavy.  I would come back just to get a wine and chill, but not necessarily a must go.
This is hands down the best wine bar you will find in NYC. Looking for a date spot? This is perfect. Looking for happy hour? This again, is the right place. Looking to have a get together with friends? You can do that. You just need a freaking glass of wine to end your day? Seat at the bar and if Kypo is there, it sure will be a good time ;) Caleb, the GM, does an awesome job with the selections of wines, and the chef creates awesome dishes that complement the place perfectly. I started coming to this place years ago when it was still not well known, and it has been awesome to be able to witness the big change that there has been in the past 3 years or so. Don't be afraid if you are not a wine expert...All of the staff is super knowledgeable and willing to help you with the selection. On the other hand, if you are a wine geek\connoisseur they have the super cool "Mystery wine" option, and if you guess the glass of wine right, you get the whole bottle on the house. Food is delicious. I always get a mix of everything... If you are on a budget, get the Croque Monsieur...They put a bit of mustard that gives to it an extra kick. Cheap and filling. The burrata is delicious too. FYI they change everything seasonally, so you always find different\new things. If you are not on a budget, splurge yourself with anything you can. I'd start with couple snacks (Always get the pop corn) and the chef's meats and cheeses selection, and work my way down. Of course depends on the party size, but you get the idea. Ask for dessert. They normally have two options and I always get both lol. Overall, I truly believe that this is one of NYC's gems. Must go.
