LOVE this venue for music and they have a great lineup. Service and food are not great, but its worth putting up with for the quality of the music experience.

If…they didn't pack the customers in like sardines…if…the food wasn't overpriced….if the people sitting next to your elbow could be relied on to behave, the the City Winery would be a decent venue. Go elsewhere to see your favorite performers.

This is our fourth visit to City Winery. This wad pur second Buster Poindexter show; David Johannson is always great as is his band. The service, however, is consistently bad. I waited over an hour for my dinner. Our waitress disappeared; finally intercepted her and asked her about my order. Another 20 minutes went by before the food arrived Also--... More

I am a physician that for professional reasons, travels with a carbon monoxide detector. I came directly from out of town to this venue and fortuitously had the CO detector with me. Surprisingly, the detector showed readings of 25-30 ppm on the concert floor. Downstairs by the bathroom, (I am told near the kitchen), the detector read 40 - 80... More

Very busy bar and restaurant, they do live music but tickets required, we walked in and got a table, food and wine good, we would have stayed longer but they only had one toilet for the restaurant and live music which I guess had about 300 people in so the que was not good

Steve Earle was in top form, but I wish we had eaten elsewhere. Food overpriced and served in random way. Appetizer and main course arrived at the same time time. Only just managed to fit on table. Service good, but if we visit again we will eat elsewhere first.

Service was bad. Waitress constantly hurried up with our order, was dressed slovenly, in black ski cap, under which were long hairs all over. Pizza was under cooked, espresso was cold and served in inappropriate cups. (almost bowls) and at the end after tip was written according to service another waiter came and almost extort extra tip, stating mandatory minimum... More

The side of the City Winery that has the music has always been fantastic. Music is great. Good venue. They're well organized. Food is good, service is good, and drinks are good. All at a reasonable price. But i tried the other side of it, just the bar side (not the bar in the room where they have music), and... More

On Wed the 19th, I walked by and saw it for the first time. It was so cute, I decided to stop it. I had to ask 3 different people for help with any one of the empty tables only to be “pushed” around, pointing to the next person who could help me. Bottom line, seemed like no one knew... More
