Inappropriate. We were not slurring, not stubling, totally acceptable behavior. The hostess was on a power trip of some sort. Told us we could not be served. Totally ridiculous. The rudest service I’ve ever had. Will not return here, do not encourage other to return....More

The setting is lovely. The wine was the best we had of the 3 places we visited. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. We bought several bottles as we really enjoyed their New York wines.
