    Just terrific now

    While they had some problems early on with food and service, they've all been worked out to great satisfaction. Sitting near the steel wine vats and oak barrels is one of the coolest experiences in the city. The food is consistently excellent, from the octopus and duck tacos starters, the crudos and flatbreads, to really good, unusual pastas like squid ink with seafood or lamb ragu, and it's the only place I order chicken! Steak and duck breast also fine. It's fun to do flights of wine from the taps, all locally made, then order bottles from a great list. Really enjoyable time in a distinctive setting.

    Tasting menu a huge treat!

    We dined at the Barrel Room last week for our anniversary. Did the full five course tasting menu with wine pairings for 70 bucks! And you definitely get a lot of bang for your buck! The meal was delicious, started with a crudo of scallop carpaccio, we also had a pomegranate glazed poulet and hanger steak with a cheese plate and a chocolate dessert. Service was right on point, and since they knew it was an anniversary they even brought us two glasses of champagne to start compliments of the Maitre'D. We were very pleased and will be back soon!

    Great Music Venue

    Great music venue -- pretty much an adult version of The Bottom Line. Seats are reserved, so no need to wait on line for a decent seat. Get on their e-mail list to get early crack at the best seats for acts that you will be very happy to see in such an intimate room (we recently saw Nick Lowe, John Hiatt, David Bromberg & Jorma Kaukonen, Dr. John, Richard Thompson.....and the list goes on). Food is pretty good too, and the wine list is, of course, quite nice. This place deserves your support -- NYC has way too few customer-friendly places to watch good, live music. This one is at the top of the list.

    A Great Night Out To Hear Music

    City Winery is a great place to hear music. Two gripes: 1. The food can range from delicious to ordinary. 2. When you consider the pricey menu, the amount of food served can be disappointing at times. With that said, I don`t know of too many places where you can sit in an intimate setting with your favorite artists just steps away sipping wine.

    Good Music Lousy Food

    I come here on a pretty regular basis for their Sunday morning Klezmer Brunch, which is unique in the city. They have some of the top performers in this specialized genre, so you can really catch some excellent music for a reasonable ($10) cover, if you choose carefully. This is a fairly intimate space, so they barely need mikes. Alas, they serve some really indifferent food. I would say, come to see the klezmer music, but don't come hungry.

    A mousetrap has more cheese!

    Asked server if the $18 cheese platter was enough for two people and was told "yes". Three wedges of Laughing Cow would have outweighed the portion we received. And the price has been raised from $15 to $18. Saw a great show but will eat before attending another performance here.

    Great time

    After reading all the negative reviews I hesitated to go here, but they all proved untrue. The wait staff was really attentive and nice. The food, I had short ribs, were great..the meat was super moist and favorful. The music wasn't too loud to speak to the people I was with and no one 'shushed' us. Perhaps these reviews are old and the mgmt has taken note. Anyway, I couldn't recommend it more.
