“If you love wine...this is the place for you”
Reviewed November 13, 2011

Like a lot of interesting places in NYC, they are kind of small. If you are lucky to get in here on a Friday or Saturday night and get a seat you are in for a treat. They have specials every night but this past Saturday their special was half price bottles of wine until 7:00 PM. We only had a glass of wine and did not eat but the food looked pretty good also. One of the better wine bars I have been too

“Delicious fondue at a special and unique location”
Reviewed July 17, 2011

You realize this is a very special place from the minute you step in, as the restaurant has a very authentic personality, with kitsch decor and not a simple space left unadorned.

The tables are tiny and you rub elbows with the people on the tables next to yours, but you forget that the moment your fondue arrives, as the two we ordered (Mushroom Royale and French Onion) were absolutely delicious. We had a pitcher of "7th Street" white wine sangria, which was also very good and refreshing for the heat of this summer. Speaking of heat, the only downside to this place we experienced was that it was a bit too hot for us, so better air-conditioning would make this restaurant simply perfect.

Finally, I have to mention that all the staffers that interacted with us were great, from the doorman that greeted us to the waiters that made sure our glasses were always full of sangria and that everything was good for us.

I would definitely recommend this place to anybody looking to have tasty fondue within a special atmosphere.

This place has it all. Friendly service, a great and extensive wine list, cheese and chocolate to share by the pot, intimate lighting, and comfy couches. It also looks awesome.
