Zach and Mandy were so wonderful and Ardesia was the perfect spot for a pre-show drink and bite! Would go back in a heartbeat.

Perfect pre-theater place for drinks and yummy well-made small plates. Helpful staff. We sat outside next to the fresh basil plants used in the drinks and food - an unexpected treat in the middle of mid-town Manhattan.

This was my first time in Ardesia- I've lived in Hell's Kitchen for over two decades and was happy to discover this gem of a wine-bar off the beaten track. It has great ambience and a nice range of wines, cocktails and bar menu- all reasonably priced. We ate inside due to the humidity but the outdoor area looks lovely. I'll be back for sure.

It's a pretty little place and VERY crowded with a great vibe.
We only went for drinks and sat on these very comfy couches. Very nice
Drinks were great. Had a pretzel and must say as a life long New Yorker they were very good.
Can't wait to go back again and have some food. And more drinks :)

Loved my wine and appetizer. Furniture needs replacing or a little TLC, and environment is very important to me. But the service was great, kind and fun people. Friend and I had a chill catch up. Enjoyed!

The wait staff was horrible in attending our table and the place was not busy. My date was upset by being ignored for 15minutes. The wait staff needs to be changed. They racially profiled patrons.

It was my first time there and I would go back! I was with a friend and we had a show to catch. Once we told our waitress, she had everything out fast and we were able to enjoy the drinks and food and see the show on time.

We sat in the lounge area and it was the perfect, tucked away spot for after work drinks! The prices for food (like the salad my friend got) can be a little bit high for the amount that you get, but the quality is all very high and the drink selection is thoughtful and varied. I got a selection of cheese and charcuterie and it was delicious and just the right amount of food to go with a drink or two (and the prices on those were pretty on par with anywhere else). The service was attentive while never rushing us, which is always a plus.

Wonderful tapas-croquettes of the day, smoked chesse shrimp skewer were perfectly prepared & so flavorful. Raddichio & apple salad came with a zesty dressing that complemented the ingredients. The only fail was devilled eggs-they had took much mayo? which made the filling too soft & it needed some heat. We paired with Rioja reserva that was .

I have gone to Ardesia a few times because friends live across the street, but it generally hasa been to grab a glass of wine or three and go. This time I arranged and evening with my three adult nieces to have a dinner snack and some wine and it truly did not disappoint. The wines we had were lovely and the food was quite superb. Now that I live closer as well, I will search it out more often.

Wonderfully delicious small dishes. The wine is great also but the pours are short and although they have appropriate glasses when you order a bottle, they give an all purpose glass when you order by the glass. Booo.

We had a great pre-theater dinner and everything was delicious. We ordered charcuterie and our waiter brought the wrong meat and they quickly replaced it free of charge which was really nice.

Menu was limited, wine pours were pricey, and the service was lack-luster. Had we sat at the bar or taken advantage of happy hour it probably would have been a better value, but overall not a great experience.

Lovely, quiet locale with delicious and very filling tapas-style food. The burrata, deviled eggs and pretzel dishes are excellent. It seems the rare restaurant in NYC in which one is able to talk without a deafening noise level. This wine bar is a place I return to often and enjoy each time.
