The side of the City Winery that has the music has always been fantastic. Music is great. Good venue. They're well organized. Food is good, service is good, and drinks are good. All at a reasonable price. But i tried the other side of it, just the bar side (not the bar in the room where they have music), and... More

On Wed the 19th, I walked by and saw it for the first time. It was so cute, I decided to stop it. I had to ask 3 different people for help with any one of the empty tables only to be “pushed” around, pointing to the next person who could help me. Bottom line, seemed like no one knew... More

My spouse and I stopped at City Winery for a drink on a Saturday evening in late September 2016. City Winery has locations in New York City (including City Winery and City Vineyard at Pier 26), Chicago, Nashville, Atlanta, and Boston. The NYC SoHo branch is located on Varick Street between Spring and Vandam Streets. The SoHo City Winery is... More

With traffic being a mess on a Friday night, we just got to the Winery to see Jeff Kazee's Early Elton show. Did nt plan on eating there, but we are glad we did. My son ordered the Fried chicken it was awesome...I ordered the flat bread..very good. The acoustics are unbelievable in the hall..We really enjoyed the night..

I went during happy hour and was met with a smile, helpful selections, great directions to my off broadway theater and encouraged to enjoy myself and thanked for visiting NY! and this from at least three separate employees. Go here. While I found many in NY helpful during my visit this staff and food was superb!

I'm only sorry it took us so long to check out this great venue that also offers excellent food and wine. We came with a large group to see a good friend open for another group. The stage, floor plan and sound were all ideal for the shows. The food was delicious and I'd absolutely go back to try other... More

Intimate concert location of about 300, the NYC winery gets quality acts for affordable prices. Not a bad seat in the house, and if booked early, you can get seats near the stage. For the individual who is tired of fighting crowds and watching screens at stadium concerts. Fun atmosphere. Food and wine are good and affordable. Check out the... More

Visited in August 2016 to see Poundcake and wasn't disappointed, great atmosphere in a small venue that felt really intimate. Great food and wine choices too, almost don't want too many people to know about it to spoil the greatness of this place. Hope to visit again!

It's my daughter's birthday today and I'd both written and called City Winery in an attempt to make a booking. We took in a great Broadway matinee and headed to the restaurant which is definitely a destination venue. We got there only to be informed that the restaurant doesn't take bookings during the summer. The point of the review: If... More
