City Winery Reviews
We went to a comedy show at City Winery and really enjoyed ourselves. The menu had some nice options for food and drink. It's a smaller venue which makes it very comfortable. more »
Family in from Belgium for the holidays. After Christmas brunch we headed downtown for the show. We had some nash and a few drinks & saw a fantastic show. Some of the jokes we may not have fully... more »
I've seen three shows at this venue now, and have been become a huge fan! This is a great intimate space with exceptional acoustics. The food, wine list and service are all top notch! Last night was particularly telling of the service. We arrived for a show, and didn't notice that my friend had bought the tickets for the wrong date until we arrived. Other friends were visiting from out of town, and couldn't stay an extra day. The venue had not sold out, and offered to allow us to trade in the tickets. They could have made us buy new tickets, but didn't hesitate to accommodate us. We're already looking at the upcoming events, to find another show we wish to see there. We were already fans, but we are now devoted friends! The only other note I might add, is that if you have discomfort sitting, you might bring a cushion ;-)
Went here for the first time today to attend a concert for Mikki Howard which was awesome. Venue was very nice. The food on the other hand wasn't very good and a bit overpriced. I would definitely return for the venue and its concerts but will probably just stick to the drinks for my personal preference.
