They could.do better with a different bar manager though. A grumpy american dude was not the best manager however the rest of the staff is very frendly and the bar is located on a great street.
Food is average.

Was there for dinner earlier.

Drinks were pretty reasonable, with a jug of Anchor draught at 5usd. Next came the french fries. Nothing fantastic. It actually looked a little sad as the portion was small and it was a little soggy.

Then we waited for like at least another 30 minutes before the main dishes were served. I had a carbonara, the cream was pretty tasty, but the penne lacked consistency. Some were just nice and some came in a little undercooked. We also had chicken cordon bleu, decent but a little dry. Baked salmon came and tasted like 'chicken breast', according to one of my friends. Tried to request the staff to do something about it, but they came back and said the chef said nothing could be done and the taste is "like that"... Finally, after like an hour, the chicken pesto pizza came, pretty nicely done.
This place is probably good for drinks and the occasional art exhibition, but food wise, not so much.

Equinox is included in the D&D delivery guide for food. Today we ordered 4 pizza's for delivery. We tried ordering from Equinox for the first time as normally, if we order pizza, we order from Luna d'Autunno or get them from Le Duo. This was a definite once and never again. It took an hour to get the pizza's delivered instead of 30 minutes as indicated in the guide and the quality is pretty miserable. It does not come close to the pizzas of the other two restaurants I mentioned. Clearly, they don't have a wood-fired pizza, fat was dripping in the pizza box, particularly the chicken-pesto one, and the pizzas were rather tasteless. Maybe nice as a snack in the bar if they're freshly made. Overall, a very disappointing experience. Delivery took an hour, taste was not good and to finish it all off, the price charged was higher than in the D&D guide. Sorry, we won't try this again.
I can't really comment on the bar as we only ordered delivery of food. I think the bar is actually quite a nice place.

Most, if not all, the issues i had with this bar in my last review, have been addressed. It is now a very inviting place to relax, drink a beer, shoot some pool, eat (the food is great value). The staff are a lot friendlier and the back room feels like a real home away from home.

My experience with Equinox is always a friendly and casual bar, prices are reasonable and has free weekly entertainment as well as art exhibits, a real mish mash of things goes on there. Staff are friendly.
