“What’s not to love about the Tangled Vine? They have a commendable selection of hidden gems, unusual bin-end lots and small production European wines to tempt the enthusiast and curious amateur alike. Combine this with an easygoing, knowledgeable staff and fantastic food and you get pretty close to my ideal wine bar.”
  For Reservas, No Cellar Required - April 9, 2012
“...the wine panel tasted 20 Rioja reservas from a range of vintages that are available in stores... For the tasting, Florence Fabricant and I were joined by Ashley Santoro, the wine director at Casa Mono near Gramercy Park, and Victoria Levin, general manager of the Tangled Vine on the Upper West Side... “I was expecting a lot of black and a lot of white, and I was excited to find so much gray,” Victoria said.”

Dive bars may have their place, but this year you traded get-plastered guzzling for grown-up tippling, and named this UWS wine bar your favorite new home-away-from-home hang. The Tangled Vine’s dead-serious vino selection is delivered via chummy service and an approachable menu that speaks to cork dorks and novices alike..."
