Visiting a friend and fellow poet in Brooklyn summons dinner in Bay Ridge. Olla Wine Bar is an intimate atmosphere setting with a good selection of wine and Italian entrees. By the power of observation on a Sunday night it appears we were among only four women patrons in the whole restaurant since it was Grammy Awards 2015 night. Olla Wine Bar fends a rustic winery setting with wine corks and a large wooden wine barrel as props. Several times during our course of dinner, the lighting was dimmed rather than just once. It is the perfect atmosphere for a date. I love the old fashion green blackboard handwritten message "I love everything that's old... Old friends, old times, old manners, old books and old wine" with an illustrated sketch of a wine bottle pouring wine into a glass. Yes, Happy Hour is available. Somewhat overpriced. At first impression was five stars but snail slow service and gross errors resulted from poor listening skills. The waiter did not offered Parmesan cheese or pepper which my poetic friend, specifically, requested three times. I personally prefer Parmesan cheese on my Risotto. The first time the waiter gave us a microscopic bottle of salt which we never requested. Second time he gave us an empty wooden pepper mill grinder which nothing came out. Finally, third time's the charm... right? Yes. The turnaround time for our food to arrive including fresh bread, correct condiments requested, and attaining change for the bill was turtle slow!

My husband and I went for the first time this weekend. The Cabernet special was very nice. We shared special goat cheese tart appetizer, excellent. The service was great, despite an ordering error. Was fixed promptly, and we were comped a lovely Strawberry Creme Brulee for the slight delay. The Wine Bar in front is very attractive, and all seats were taken by the time we finished dinner. Will definitely return.
