definitely go, just go early!

drinks are amazing and old school, and they have great bartenders and a ton of options you'll have a hard time finding anywhere else. cozy and romantic, not too crowded or loud. i recommend going early, before dinner, as the few tables get full early. there is standing room in the bar, and in good weather they have an outdoor space. really worth any wait, and though it's not cheap, it is totally worth every penny.

A hidden gem

Ring the doorbell and be prepared to fall in love. If you're lucky, you'll get a comfortable couch in a beautifully asthetic living room with service that is discreet and relaxed. No rushing you, no pressuring you to make a choice. Call the waitress when YOU'RE ready by pulling the chain near your seat. I loved it here and the cocktails were strong and tasty. I have never felt so sophisticated and attended to. Thanks for having a place where one can have a good drink and good conversation!

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.
