Please consider twice before eating at Winegasm. Its poorly managed. I called to make reservations for V-Day three weeks in advance. While making the reservation I asked about the menu for that night; specifying my wife is a vegetarian

Winegasm is the perfect spot to relax with some wine and good company. I make it a habit to try mac n cheese everywhere it's available and Winegasm gave me a mac n cheese gasm... INCREDIBLE! Excellent food priced right in an awesome atmosphere. I can't wait to go back.

great great selection of wines. try one of their wine flights! it's awesome because you get to try a few different wines you may not normally have the courage to buy a whole glass.

Our private wine tasting party was the best way to celebrate our dear friend's 30th! It was a lovely afternoon of chatting and drinking together. \r

We all learned a little bit from Dean and overall, loved it!

went with a friend and was so excited. love wine bars!!!! and i heard the mac and cheese was amazing. while there, we started talking to one of the owners. he seemed really nice and after we were done with our bottle of wine. he recommended another bottle for us to try. he even poured himself a glass. well we didn't like the bottle and gave the it to the owner. he accepted it and continued to drink it. we decided to get another bottle of what we had previously. when we asked for the bill, to our surprise, we got charged for the bottle of wine we didn't like and gave back to the owner. it took about 20 minutes to have the owner come out from the back to explain why this was on there. he actually said too bad. i got more infuriated and started making a scene. this time yelling at how dare he rip us off. finally after 15 minutes or so, i got the bottle of wine off the check. there are new wine bars popping up all over astoria so i'll never have to go back here again.

Cons: the owner

Right around the corner from my place, I love coming here after work. It's a nice alternative to staying late in the city and cabbing home. I just wish their kitchen was open late as well.

I just wanted to comment on this little spot me and my friends recently stumbled upon. I was initially both curious and slightly put off by the weird name but once inside I was pleasantly surprised, decor and ambiance were A++, it was a Tuesday night and the place was hosting an ''Open Mic'' event, at first there were not too many people and the gentleman behind the bar said it was a ""calm before the storm"" and true to his words about an hour into the event the place was packed with young ""new age"" Astoria crowd. I have been living in this neighborhood for a few years now and always wished there were more places like this one with a Manhattan ""feel"" .. so I think this place might save me a trip to Manhattan on occasion! Overall, really impressed, staff was minimal ( I only saw 3 people including the cook) but really friendly and the food was excellent, we tried some smaller and larger shares (goat cheese stuffed peppers and bacon mac & cheese) REALLY awesome! Wine selection seemed extensive I am not a big wine drinker but glass of Italian red they recommended (a Super Tuscan? ) was spot on. Great addition to the neighborhood!

Traditional wine bar with seasonal cocktails and inventive apps. Gracious hosts provide attentive service that makes you feel at home. Open mic nights supporting local artists, generous brunches and educational wine tasting classes are among the many incentives of this place. Much needed for the area.

Just lovely! Walked in Friday evening, it was fairly busy but not crowded. It is so welcoming and cozy. Sophisticated but understated and relaxed. Love the central communal table (fantastic for large group parties!) The staff are a great team, very friendly. Iif you are not a wine expert, don't worry - the staff will pick the bottle or drink that's just right for you. \r
We had a devine bottle of Pere et Fils Pouilly-Fuisse. The food was excellent. Althought they do not serve dinner portion meals you can fill up on the delightful shareable smalls orders. Try the goat cheese filled peppers, Gasm carrot spread or scallops - all so yummy! We had a wonderful evening. Excellent for dates!

Went to Winegasm for the first time last friday, me and my boyfriend had a great meal, felt the ambiance was really nice , liked the menu selections a lot, we loved the idea of entire menu being offered in family style, tapas where you can mix and match different options. My personal favorite was roasted peppers stuffed with herb goat cheese...they were awesome! My boyfriend had crab cakes followed by filet mignon he said they were some of the best he ever tried! Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and they put together a wine flight selection to go with our meal. Overall great and charming little spot well worth checking out!

I don't understand what the buzz is all about. The wine is okay and the cheeses they serve you are tiny. It is very expensive for queens and the piece of cheese i ordered was paper thin. There are a lot more fun place to go to for better value in Astoria. Do yourself a favor and skip out on this on.

I think I went to a different location that just opened in Astoria. They had great wines but they served very small portions and were overpriced. We were kind of disappointed.

Such mixed feelings when writing about my dinner at the winegasm eatery . I enjoyed it, two of my three courses were exceptional, and the service was top-notch. But my main dish was underwhelming, and the timing between courses felt too long. I also felt the atmosphere was a bit on the stuffy and hushed side - perfect for some, for me, looking for a little more life in my surroundings.

Went here with my mom, who has major food allergies. The restaurant was very accommodating and my mom really enjoyed her meal. I also had a coupon which lowered their prices a bit. The service wasn't as good as I remember, but it was still perfectly acceptable.\r

about 6 of us ladies went there on a weds night. i would definitely return, but here are some things that might be helpful . 1. they're in the process of re-doing their menu so about 3 entrees weren't available. i believe it should be all set next week??!!! 2. it can get hot in there so if it's a humid night i could see it not being comfortable sans any a/c (try to sit closest to the outside if possible). 3. you'll have to try the spicy almonds!! the food was delicious when it did come. 4. the wait for food can be a bit long, but worth it. it's more of a wine bar so the tiny cooking station can only do so much at a time. 5. the wait staff and managers are fantastic and totally accommodating. this is a low key swanky place. it's great for an intimate date or for a group.

Like the enviorment...\r
less of the cheesy ""astoria euro trash' and more of the neighborhood, cool peeps that can't afford or care to do Manhattan and others who live in proximity.\r
\r
Athough everything is good... it could be better. It would be great if they rotated the wine selection and menu.\r
We have gone there at least 5 times in the past six months and nothing has changed. all the same. enthusiasm is there, but creativity beyond the original thought is lacking.\r
\r
Winegasm... please change the menu weekly... at least monthly! Change the menu to reflect the seasons of different regions of wine that you carry. Pair the wine with the food. Offer suggestions on the menu.\r
\r
I like it, but I want to love it! Please make me winegasm...SOON!\r

We enjoyed brunch for the most part.\r
My girl friends and i past sevral busy brunch spots only to discovery a gem off the main drag .\r
what a treat no long lines and we seated our selfs with service right away.\r
At frist we where not impress by the menu witch was limited but when our server told us about a few items\r
we got just what we where looking for fair eggs with fresh beans goat cheese and something that look like spinach it was ok, but I wish I would of ordered the french toast after seeing my room mate wolf down this dish that was stuffed with some kind of fruit and some kind of fresh strawberry sauce.\r
everything was pretty to look at , but too much egg to eat it took up the whole plate and came with some type of potatoe that was great looked stange but tasted wonderful.\r
service was fair, but the room made up for all that was missing.\r
the old world look and feel made all of us feel like we where dinning at a kings round table.\r
We even recieved some type of toast with butter and jam that made me feel like i was at my grandmother on holiday.\r
the best part was the check very affordable i think we have found a new place to gather on week ends .

I enjoyed dinner with my date there a few nights ago ,it was the best exprience I have had in a long time.\r
I live in Queens and work in Manhattan when I asked my date what would she like to do she said go to france for dinner so a good friend suggested a new spot that was local called winegasm and wow we had arrived in europe with out the long flight.\r
The decor was dark and chic I ordered a wonderful steak with melted blue cheese and a wonderful red wine sauce that blew me away and my date was very happy with the freshness of her salmon and how pretty it was plated and presented to our table.After finishing every bite I went over to complement the Chef on a great meal and was even more amazed when I saw the size of the work space in this open kitchen.\r
I still can not believe that such wonderful treats can come out of such a restricting area the only word i can use is magic I thought that Guy must have a magic wand to accomplish what we where seeing with our own eyes as the wait staff scrambled to the roar of service yelled out by the cooking staff.\r
My date said that she didn,t want her white rice because she was getting ready for her summer wardrob and before I could finsh my steak her fork was digging into my rice because her,s was gone.\r
Our wine was the perfect match.\r
The only let down to such a great meal was the dessert selection.\r
I guest with such a delight 1st and 2nd course and such great wine and attention i expected an equally as great pastry chef sending out more magic.\r
over all we will be back agian and agian and agian...

I found this wine bar a refreshing addition to the up and coming Astoria scene. The first thing that strikes you is the decor - dark wood dominates the space, and in combination with the subtle lighting adds to the feeling of warmth and cozyness. The wine list is very extensive and wonderfully diverse, and is accompanied by a light yet satisfying food menu. Some really interesting flatbread combinations on there - wonderful selection of cheeses also. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and we even got to meet the chef. The check was a nice surprise as well. All in all, it was a wonderful experience, and I will definitely be going again.

I have some friends in Astoria and have enjoyed coming with them to this newly opened spot. It is a refreshing alternative to other bars/restaurants in the area - offering top quality wine and food without the treck into Manhattan. The food is both light and satisfying - they have some inventive appetizers and quite an extensive array of options, especially considering this is a wine bar.\r
\r
The wines are excellent and there quite a few options by the glass. The management and owners interact with everyone in the restaurant, making recommendations and pouring wines themselves.\r
\r
Overall, this place has a warm - local bar feeling with the upscale ambiance & menus that one would expect in Manhattan. I'm excited about the wine tasting classes and new events coming up at this venu!

From the moment you walk in, the place makes you feel welcome. The wine list is delightful and the owners are wonderful people who recommend you the best of what they have to offer. Great appetizers include great cheese assortment and my favorite roasted beets and baby fennel salad. I have brought many of my friends there since the opening and they always has a great time. People are starting to even come from other parts of town just to check them out. The place is definitely changing the face and feel of Astoria. I also heard they will be holding wine tasting classes in the near future. So definitely keep this place on your top 10 list to checkout.\r

Went to Winegasm last Friday and really enjoyed the atmosphere. I ordered a bottle of the Malbec and was not disappointed...Also, it was actualy nice to meet a couple of the neighbors from the hood. I like this spot because it?s very different from the other places around here...looking forward to this Friday :)

Never has it happened before that after a 3 course dinner and 2 glasses of wine I went to another restaurant to eat normal food. It is a wine tasting place that serves some light appetizers to go along. Don?t confuse this place with a restaurant and don?t take your date there! Too pretentious and expensive for Astoria.\r

I came to Winegasm with my girlfriends on Saturday night and fell in love with the place. Really cool spot. The decor is beautiful and the ambiance was perfect for a quiet girls night. The somelier personally recommended a few different reds for us that were great, and we shared two spreads one with goat cheese and the other with prosciutto and pesto. So good. We also tried the croque monsieur, equally good. The staff was really welcoming, and over all we had a blast. We will without a doubt be coming back soon.

beautiful decor, straight-forward but foodie-worthy menu (except the ""signature"" truffled dip...total baby-food texture), lots of wines to choose from. enjoyed meeting the chef, really nice guy, seems super enthusiastic about the menu he's put together. the down side is the rest of the staff, way too much attitude for this neighborhood. hovering, obnoxious. generally when i go out in the neighborhood i look for something relaxed and comfortable, but it was hard for my date and i to relax when our waiter (the somelier??) was over our shoulder the whole night.

Pros: decor, wine list

Cons: music way too loud, snooty staff

Really like this joint - really good small dishes and vino; my boyfriend and I met the French owner and thought he was amazin..Looking forward 2 returning.

Pros: romantic

The place was really great, particularly considering it just opened. Nowhere to go but up at that point. The food was great... broad assortment... with involved owners interested in the opinions and input of their customers and keeping them happy. Cocktails were great... wine list was certainly on its way up... and overall its a worthwhile repeat, no question.\r

Cons: none yet...

All the chicness of Manhattan without the pretentiousness. Decor is stunning, food is downright affordable (all items below $10) and the wine selection is impressively chosen by an in-house sommelier. Owners are friendly guys too.

We went here last night, which apparently was a special friends, family, and neighbors night. (They officially open 4/2)\r
The owners were there, and were really warm and friendly. The atmosphere, decor, etc. was great.\r
And the food was incredible! I can't wait to go back for the bacon-wrapped prunes on a daily basis! Seriously fantastic!
