After living in Northern California, going to Faust is like a reversal of knowledge. To be perfectly frank, Hungarian wines aren't world-class, and Faust basically underscores this fact. We elected for the 6 tastes. Starts with a SB, which was as flat as can be. Two-buck Chuck rivals it. Then to a "Rose" which tasted white and shallow again. Next a red table wine that was all leather and spice. Then to a merlot-cab that was easily passable, but as the "piece de resistance" fell flat. Gabor tried to appease us with another full-bodied red that was overly-complex, which made it interesting, but virtually unpairable. The "semi-sweet" dessert wine was nearly syrup, rivaling a sweet muscat. Good lesson in realizing that California destroys Hungary in this domain.
If you live outside of a wine region, you will enjoy Faust. The atmosphere is intimate and quaint, and the service is very personable, with a ton of knowledge regarding European wines. Hungary has a long way to go before ranking amongst the great wine regions of the world.
