Great Place To Go With A Small Group

  • Yes, I would go back!

I love Madam Geneva - I've been three times in the past month. This is definitely not the best bar to meet new people. All three times I have gone with small groups of 2-4 that I already know. There are plenty of good looking people around, but no one really approaches each other... not really that kind of place. The drinks are amazing, and the bartenders are all awesome. One time, I ordered a negroni and just couldn't drink it. I mentioned that to one of the bartenders and he offered to swap (free of charge) for another drink. Amazing service like that is what keeps people coming back and buying more drinks.

Great Place to Impress Your Friends

This bar is a great place to go and prove that you know more than just 'bridge and tunnel' NYC. I found this bar to be exciting not only because of its interesting entrance but also the swanky (and delicious!) cocktails. Best in Manhattan as far as I can tell. Yes you pay about $10 for a cocktail but its worth it for the scene and taste. I found the staff to be extremely friendly and helpful. I recommend checking this bar out, despite the review above. I have already gone back three times despite only knowing about it for a few weeks.

Not a good time

  • No, I would not go back!

I saw pictures of the space and it looked exciting. I was underwhelmed by the food and the drinks were expensive for what you got. There was an air of rudeness and I did not feel welcome with my friend. Poor showing.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
