I've been here a few times because I live in the neighborhood and I admit that the food is pretty good/decent for a wine bar (and I enjoy the atmosphere), but I can honestly say that every time I have been there Vincent the chef/owner/host was so rude and obnoxious that it made me uncomfortable to eat at his restaurant. He seems to favor his friends or people he knows as far as getting a table, so if you get there first, but a friend of his shows up, he will give his friend the table. I actually overheard them cursing at one of the waitresses which he probably should avoid doing in front of customers. I'm not surprised about the bad reviews on here about service, because I have experienced the same thing. If you want a local place, with decent food and good wine, but don't mind potentially waiting for a table while other's get ahead of you, overhearing some curses, or being treated badly by the owner - then I would say go here, but I definitely would not recommend going out of your way for this place!
Pros: Ambience, bread, sangria & wine
Cons: Owner's attitude
