It was a Monday night. The restaurant was less than half full. And the decibel reading averaged 83.7 decibels over one hour, twelve minutes, and 48 seconds.
City Winery has two restaurants: one is in a performance space and the other (the “Barrel Room”) is a restaurant/bar in an adjoining building. We had our meal in the Barrel Room, the restaurant sans performance space. But you wouldn’t have known that by the meter reading, as the space was really really loud. We repeat: 83.7 decibels. On a Monday night. With more than half the tables empty.
There was absolutely no reason for the place to be this loud. Avoid.
