    Oh. My. Gorg. Talk about writing ambiance -- huge wooden bar, exposed brick and sparkly chandeliers. Wait staff is really friendly and won't mind you hanging at the bar with your laptop.

    Decor is like a decorated burned out barn with chandelier of OMG what is that doing in the corner. 10 pound wine-list not joking! Menu simple easy to read in low light. I like that!

    Tolani now accepts payment through MyCheck app. This free app saves you time and lets you pay your tab right from your phone, no waiting for the bartender! Keep on the lookout for coupons and deals!

    Happy hour is no longer bogo. It has changed to $5 glasses of red and white of their choosing for the day. Our server didn't mention the change so we learned the hard (and expensive) way... Bummer!

    Beautiful decor- romantic & cozy. Food and wine delish. A true gem of the UWS.

    Small tasting sizes so price adds up quickly. Great when your intention is not dinner! Food is awesome.

    Best dish is vegetarian spaghetti and meatballs. All time favorite. Menu does change rather frequently.

    Brunch is tasty. They don't honor the advertised foursquare special, which means you really do need to bring cash!

    Get the vegetarian spaghetti. I'm not vegetarian and it's amazing. The pinotage-when they get it back in is HEAVEN in your mouth.

    I wasn't impressed with the vegetarian spaghetti; bland and not at all filling. Pear Bellini was great and the service was awesome. I'd come back but order something else.

    Avoid this place. They always have an attitude. Just gave them yet another chance. Take your money elsewhere. Lots of great restaurants on that block - and Tangled vine is a better wine bar. .

    For a "wine restaurant", the wines here are largely unremarkable. The food is tasty, however. Read more
