After walking across the Brooklyn Bridge we popped in here for a spot of brunch. On entering the small but cosy 'bar' we had asked if we could have the small table in the bay window, but was told that it was already 'reserved' and we were taken to a small table outside the kitchen and the 2 separate toilets,...

Visited here for brunch on a Sunday - good location near the Brooklyn Bridge. Staff were friendly and the food was good, plus a fun spot for people watching!

First visit for 2 of our party to this Brooklyn Heights neighborhood wine bar. We sampled cheese, chorizo and olives along with creatively designed cocktails, good wine and beer to start followed by shaved brussels sprouts in a salad and a melted brie plate. Gnocci with boar sauce, pulled pork sandwiches and a delightful smoked salmon plate rounded out the... More

We booked a table for the new year night. We were seated pretty quickly. The meal a set for 55$ per person and included 3 dishes and a glass of wine. It was also said on the website and in the menu that 55$ included all taxes and service. We had to wait for 1 HOUR before our appetizers arrived.... More

This is agreed place to eat in Brooklyn after taking the promenade. The good ingredient selection and wine variety by the glass make it perfect for tasting different flavored or sharing in a group. The little place is cozy and has a great personality

We found it through the TripAdvisor app. We had excellent food, good sparling wine and the price was very fair. Would definitively come back.

We stumbled into this place on a wet night because it was near the subway. First impressions were excellent and the atmosphere is terrific. Our friendly and hard working waiter gave us attentive service and the wine selection was good and well priced. HOWEVER the food would have Gordon Ramsay screaming at the cook... Yes, not the standard of even... More

Who could pass up a nice neighborhood venue listed as a Wine Bar. Then we decided to order food, and then it got even better! Nice neighborhood spot, the food is very good, and the prices are much less than in Manhattan. Go see the Promenade, but stop here before you do.

I really don't want to write this review. I don't want more people coming here. This wine bar is perfect -- an amazing, interesting, and perfectly curated selection. Delicious nibbles ranging from cheese and crackers all the way up to full meals. And a wonderful vibe with perfectly attentive waitstaff. And, it's almost all entirely filled by locals from within...
