One of my favorite venues to see live music in New York City and with their wine and menu options, they have everything you need for a special and memorable night out.

This is a way overdue THANK YOU to City Winery for our wedding on May 24, 2014. Words simply cannot express the appreciation that I have for all the effort put forth by your team to make our day extra special. I worked very closely with Amanda and Emily through the process who always were available to answer all my phone calls (sometimes multiple times per day!!), and reassured me that everything would go perfectly…which it did! When we arrived at the CW, we were running a little late and the guests had already arrived. Without hesitation, the team knew to sneak me through the wine cellar and keep me out of sight! The ceremony was flawless, and when it was over, my husband and I were able to spend some quality time together before cocktail hour. CW set the suite up with drinks and appetizers that were being served and we had a personal assistant to get us anything we needed. Once the reception started, Emily kept right on track with the timeline we put together. The dinner was seriously the BEST wedding food ever. I have been told soooo many times that they would return to the Winery just to eat those braised short ribs with polenta. Even the salmon was a huge hit, and not dried out like it usually is when you order fish in large quantities. We also opted for the cake from Tribeca Treats which was just fabulous! A few days out from the wedding, we ordered the wine with custom labels, which our guests have repeatedly said how much they enjoyed it – they were a huge hit and so glad we included this touch! I simply cannot say enough for how perfectly everything was, and how wonderful the entire team continues to be to us. They even sent an extremely sweet gift to us last week, more than 3 months later! I still keep in touch with the team there and know we will be returning soon for a concert or two! They really went above and beyond to make our day so extra special. If you are considering a wedding at this venue, you shouldn’t even think twice! It fulfilled our every wish, and hope it will be perfect for you as well 

The only reason I haven't given this place a 5 star is because I have only gone for dinner and wine. I really loved the food here. Right off the bat, delicious. We had a rather large group and opted to order a few of everything they had on the menu. The meatballs with manchego cheese were perfectly prepared with rich flavor, as was every other appetizer. For the main course I had the fish special which has more ingredients than I can remember but it was extremely well balanced, the fish was perfectly cooked and maintained its full flavor. The plating was amazing and I remember the sauce as a smooth combination of light textures, rich flavors, and sweet aroma. The wines were on another level, each one delicious and unique as the next. I had no idea all the wines were made there. Oddly enough we were sitting in the wine room with all the machinery. It was really cool and added to the atmosphere.

My first experience with City Winery was this past Thursday. I was there to see the wonderful Glenn Tilbrook of Squeeze fame. The show started at 8 but we arrived @ 6 because we wanted to have dinner beforehand. I loved the place as soon as I walked in. It seemed like a very well organized place. The atmosphere is very inviting and cozy. I would highly suggest to NOT get a square table seat. They seem very cramped. I was on a bar stool next to the staircase on one of those round tables. Excellent view with a lot of freedom. As a patron on her way to the bathroom said, "You guys have the best seats in the house!" The food menu for concert nights isn't very big. Just a few scattered items. I started out with the City Winery Cabernet which was so smooth and fantastic. Bit on the expensive side, though. They had someone going around with samples of other house made wines. They were great as well. The regular bar drinks are modestly priced and were all great. Had the Pan Fried Chicken, buffalo mozzarella flat bread and tried a piece of steak that my brother had. Everything was so satisfyingly delicious. Everything came out very fast as well. Some of the servers didn't seem to quite know what they were doing and/or looked like they didn't even want to be there. The service was fast and attentive nonetheless. The sound is spot on. The bathrooms are nice and clean. The slanted sink is very weird. Great people, great food, great drinks and great music. Can't ask for a better time than that! I can't wait to go back to City Winery! Lastly, go with a fat wallet. It'll be half empty by the time you leave. In my opinion, so worth it!

The wine was good, but nothing was anything I really felt like having again. The ambiance is nice with tables made from corks and wine casks all around. We took the tour and tasting and while the tour was interesting, it dragged on a bit and had to be completed before sampling anything. The sampling was fairly small as well with 3 fairly small pours including a Sauvignon, a Zinfandel, and a Rose. All were ok, but none really stuck out. The cheese pairing was very good, especially the blue cheese and goat cheese, but again, fairly small. The staff was helpful and friendly, but a bit slow and unfocused on the tour. I'd go back for just some of the wine (different types) or for the concerts, but would skip the tour.

If you are looking for a nice night out for a wine tasting, to listen music and dine City Winery is the place to go. This restaurant/concert venue is pure genius with music acts daily. The atmosphere is superb as the lights are dimmed for you to focus on the feature presentation. Worth checking out!

I have seen more shows here than I can name. Amazing venue, intimate, good food and great wine. I wonderful place to see some of the best names in music. My only issue, why I won't give 5 stars, is that sometimes they are snooty, and you get looks and questioned heavily by bouncers if you aren't dressed to the nines (which in my case, I show up for concerts in a rock tshirt and jeans). If you can look past the attitude (it's nyc after all) then you will love it.
