  • Everything on the menu is amazing. The wine selection is great!
  • Fried calamari, yumm
  • An affordable share-plates analogue to a spendier tasting menu venue. Imagine beef tartare with pimenton oil, smoked cheddar, horseradish, and buckwheat groats. You dig?
  • Options here come a la carte. There's toast with little neck clams, lardo, and spinach; beef tartare with smoked cheddar and chestnuts; radishes with seaweed butter; and a steak for two.
  • Not worth the wait. Better for a snack & drink than full dinner. Go with the tuna tartare & a glass of the Cheverny.
  • Excellent food, desserts and wines
  • Creative and eclectic small plate menu -- with reasonably sized plates -- that has a vibe and wine menu perfect for a date. Great vibe. The poached tuna, beef tartar, and gem lettuce salad all .
  • Everithing
  • I had the best wine I've ever had here, and some of the most creative, yet simple, food.
  • Lively vibe and delicious scallop crudo. Definitely get the bread. Felt it was a bit hyped but still a good meal. Tartare and spicy tuna toast were pretty good as well.
  • Beef tartar, radish and butter, shishito peppers, bread and olive oil, and scallops! Delicious! Definitely worth the wait
  • Drink weird wine and order the bread. (FWIW I'm totally against paying for bread, but this is definitely worth it)
  • beef tartar, fried squid, mackeral, and duck were all AMAZING! very cool, laid back, clean atmosphere. loved it.
  • Lovely wine bar from the folks at Contra. Amazing wine list and great small eats. My favs were scallop crudo, fried squid, shrimp, rhubarb granita!
  • skate was delicious! uni on potato!
  • Everything was great! Contra's sister restaurant delivers on quality and fresh dishes with seasonal ingredients
  • Tasty small plates and wine. A bit pricey and space is super small, but great food. Would not recommend for a large group.
  • Liked everything but didnt love anything
  • Great list of natural wines
  • Wildair is more low-pressure, set with sardine-packed bar tables, a fuzzy midaughts soundtrack and neighborhood affability.
