We made a reservation for 2 one and half month earlier with request of sitting at sofa table and yet we still only get normal table because we're party of two. There were many parties of 3 sitting at sofa tables without reservations. We asked if we could get a sofa table if we waited for a while and got negative answer. We came to NY for travel and wanted to have a great night so we booked early, but it didn't happen. Atmosphere was great, not a fan of how the staffs dealt with reservations.

Not the best, not the worst. CDB cocktails were good, but nothing to write home about, pretty pricey for the portions you get. Probably would not go back

A great space for a gathering of friends in a laid back, energetic environment. Their cocktails are creative and the menu is better than your typical bar food - very inventive.

Only had drinks since the kitchen wasn’t fully opened. The HH drinks were good. The place is pretty small and dark but I’d entertain the place again if in the area.

The pipe from the upstairs bathroom was leaking onto our table. Therefore dirty water got on me and my drink. When I called the waitress over about the water, she and the bartender got flustered and didn't know what to do because the manager wasn't there. There was water pouring onto the light, which could've started a fire. Instead of shutting down the light, they moved everyone to the other side of the bar. Just wasn't a good vibe for after work drinks. Won't be going there again.

I took some clients here for drinks and snacks after work. The drinks are great, and the apps were delish, especially the rocket pizza. Paté also yummy. It's loud, but not so much you can't hear each other. Cool atmosphere, not uber-hip, but hip enough.

It took over half an hour for our drinks to arrive, and they had the front door open all night on a COLD evening. The place was freezing. The hostess was wearing a parka, if that helps put things in perspective. Drinks were solid and ambiance is great, just not keen on the crazy long wait and the temps.

Service was a bit inattentive and it was freezing in the bar- they left the door open in 40 degree weather.

Great artisan cocktails—both vintage and new—and tasty, well-priced small plates make this a great stop for an hour or two or three! Staff is friendly and service is great.

Drinks were a bit expensive, but very tasty. The Burrata was awesome, definitely recommend. Sliders were decent, but nothing to order twice.

What a great spot! Went to grab a drink with a friend and ended up trying nearly everything on the menu. The cocktails were great and the food was also great - had the sliders, tartare, scallops, and burrata. Will definitely be back!

The atmosphere is nice. It got a little loud as it got busier being Saturday evening and all. Was a bit disappointed they did nothing for the birthday we were celebrating and had noted on our reservation. Food took a while to come out. Drinks were good though.

Cold and gloomy place, basically a hole in the wall that leads into a basement. Servers were so-so, but nice enough. Good for a date if you like dark places that try to appear cool

From the outside it doesn’t look great but we had researched the place but our visit to NYC. It’s a really good bar and I would highly recommend visiting this bar. Staff were friendly and prompt and our cocktails were very nice!

When I approached the bar with a friend we were not greeted instead the bartender placed a menu that looked like a piece of arts and craft paper (with no indication that it was a menu) on the counter... After about 5 mins I kindly asked for service only to have the bartender point to the paper he placed on the bar. Thanks dude. We proceed to order drinks and eventually we were seated. After dinner the waiter didn’t come by with the check for 20 mins...we eventually gave in and asked the hostess for help. Overall the food and drinks were great. Unfortunately the service gets one star.

Kalbu sliders is a must-try! And that painkiller was the best cocktail I have ever had.... very generous with the alcohol. Will be going back next time I’m in Manhattan!

Disappointing overall -- cocktails too basic for a bar of this lineage and price point -- lacking complexity, thoughtfulness or flair. Enjoyed the curried deviled eggs and the space, but wouldn't go back.
