We had high expectations after reading the reviews on City Search... unfortunately, they were quickly squashed... The information on this site for this bar is very out of date... It does NOT open at 5 pm anymore.... It opens at 6:00 pm... so when we got there just after 5:00 we were politely told to come back.. we went next door to Cowboy's and had a drink and went back after 6:00 pm. They also do NOT have happy hour any more... so no specials. We were seated at a table and when we asked if we could move to a couch, the staff said they were all reserved [the place was nearly empty at the time]... and after a bit of prodding they did let us move to a couch. The atmosphere is nice.. the couches comfy and the wine good.... based on the recommedation online we also tried to the flatbread pizza. It was also good. As noted on the site it is dark inside.. which I liked. However, the music was too loud and was not the right style for people to have casual conversation.. It turned into more of a loud dance club type sound and we had to almost shout or be right up in the face of the person if you wanted to be heard. Parking is also hard to find, but is manageable. Also as noted, finding the place is hard.. there is NO sign on the door that says the place's name... It's like a barn door in the back alley.. kind cool once you know you're in the right place... but tricky to find the 1st time. Overall, I'd say the staff was not very friendly and after having high expectations from reading the online reviews, we were very disappointed. I won't make the effort to go back.
Pros: nice wine selection
Cons: staff was not friendly; music too loud and not the right style for this type atmosphere
