Service is slow for food and cocktails other than wine. Servers need to let people know when food will be delayed and do a better job managing tables so that parties can receive their orders in a more timely fashion. I waited over half an hour for a margarita.

The drinks came quite quickly, however we waited forever for a Quiche, Crostini & Brezels. The appraised Bavarian mustard was just regular mustard and I do not think they ever have seen how crostini and quiche really look like...would not recommend this restaurant again. Staff did not like our feedback at all and was not friendly...

Really nice cool little wine bar and cafe. Excellent selection of wines and really nice food. The burger and truffled mac 'n' cheese was excellent. Worth a visit for a nice relaxed lunch!

The idea is 100%, the execution in the 90's. I had two glasses of wine both nice selections and reasonable ($10 and $11). They have cheese and meats and a few small plates. We got the shaved brussel sprout salad - perfect. White bean and lemon crostini - the topping was too cold and overwhelmed the bread that was sliced... More

The service was great. Mac and cheese was tasty. Wine choices were good and while I misread the menu, the chef made my request and it may be a new addition to the regular menu. All that I shared with raved about the maple bourbon bread pudding with a bacon cage. Yumm

After walking around in Brooklyn, I stopped by this place for lunch. The waitress was delightful. The food (I ordered a bacon and cheese burger) was very good (especially the homemade crisps!). The place is small, quite cozy and has large windows, perfect for watching people passing by.

Stumble across this place after a long, hot walk all the way from Central Park...and it was great. We popped in for a light lunch and a beer and were not disappointed. Very welcoming waiter/bar tender and a very pleasant atmosphere at lunch time. There was a larger party in for lunch and the waiter was distracted and forgot to... More

We stopped here after walking over the Brooklyn bridge. It was a nice little place, we got seated by the window which did have a little draft coming through but the place was quite busy so didn't ask to be moved. The service was lovely, other than the draft and a little wait on our food, this place was good.... More

Boxing day lunch. It was cold and rainy outside but the bright window table and welcoming hospitality made this a great place to fall into. Rocco took especially good care of us despite the place filling up fast and appearing to be understaffed on the day after Christmas.

The Wine Bar on Henry Street in Brooklyn Heights is a nice little place to visit for a drink or a little light dinner. The food is very good and the drinks are always excellent. The best time to visit is during the week days or nights. It tends to get a little crowded and noisy on the weekends. If... More
