We purchased a "GET IT NOW GROUPON" for Sambuca Cafe while in New York City. For only $10, we received $20 of fare. We had never been to Sambuca, and were impressed with the small, intimate setting. It was a warm afternoon, so instead of sitting inside, which was not well air conditioned, we sat outside on the sidewalk. I tried to use their FREE WIFI, but could not get on. This was not something I expected to use, but the cafe advertised it, so I wanted to use it. No luck. As far as the meal, we paid $30 for our lunch, including tip. We each had a sandwich, and something to drink. I drank water, and my husband had a coke. Both glasses were small, and needed refilling more than once, when we could find the waitress. We were shocked to discover that his coke was $2.50, with each refill also $2.50. Our sandwiches were fair, and made us yearn for our New York Deli in Palm Harbor, FL, with heaping meat. We left a minimal tip - 10% - due to the triple charge for soda, and I explained this to our waitress. Had she told us about the refill charge, she would have received an additional $5 tip, and my husband would have had water, instead of refills. The cost of his drink was equal to the cost for a sandwich! For what we paid, we were disappointed with our adventure, and thankful that with Groupon it only cost us a total of $20, not $30.
