I have many great wine bars on upper west side, so have to divide them up by blocks. This is favorite in 70's blocks. Sadly, the turnover is very fast with the staff, but the new teams are as lovely. Seen some fun cast members from SNL and 30 Rock there. It's a great local haunt - easily accessible by 72nd street subways. And by the Dakota!

we divorced this once favorite bar as they got carried away with being favorite. Last time the waiter forced us to sit at a table we did not like as it was next to a pile of garbage.Then their rigid and nonsensical attitude escaleted toa level that we had to leave. It was 5:45pm and 85% of tables were empty, what an attitude for a bar!! Unacceptably uncivilized treatment for a bar which at best serves avarage food and wine, but cheaper prices.

Because if you do, then it just adds to my quaint little wine bar that I love so much. But... I guess if you do go, I would recommend any of the flatbreads, the truffle oil panini (with prociutto added into it), or the mussels. The staff is excellent and will let you try any of the wines before hand to make sure its what you want.

Can't recommend this place enough if you are looking for a relaxing wine bar in the neighborhood.

This winebar is on my block, but hadn't tried it out until recently. I love the quaint atmosphere and lovely servers. My friends and I ordered the mushroom pizza and the mussels. They mussels were to die for - they were the best I have tasted in awhile with a delicious spicy tomato sauce. The mushroom pizza was also excellent. I'll definitely go back to this gem. I would highly recommend it!

Went there for pre-theatre dinner with a friend. The server (Ashley) was warm, welcoming and attentive. We got our drinks right away and took our time ordering the food. No problem -- we were never rushed. The mussels were amazing and the vegetarian flatbread was very good. A definite "let's go here again" place!

I went to Riposo 72 last night to try something new in my neighborhood. The inside is cozy and cute, and the wine was good (I had a Malbec). The food; however, was a different story. My boyfriend and I both ordered the arugula salad to start – and although it was good, I could have made it myself for much cheaper. It was basically just arugula tossed with a smidge of dressing with some parmesan cheese sprinkled on top and with 4 tiny pieces of grapefruit – nothing special. Then, we shared the mushroom flatbread pizza for the main course. Had I know it would take light years to make, I would have just left and made one myself. 50 minutes later when our pizza finally came (mind you, the server never once apologized for the ridiculous wait), we were disappointed to find that it was just NOT GOOD. I think they made the crust with matza, and they must have bought the red onions/mushrooms at the street cart on 72nd because there was nothing gourmet about it at ALL. Again, I could have made this pizza at home for cheaper and in half the time! The worst part about this experience was the bill came to $80
