Food takes a while to be served. Exercise patience or you make want to go somewhere else if you are in a rush. Love the décor and outdoor seating!

Nice spot, friendly and family-owned business. They have live music and open mic on certain nights and their wine cocktails are delish! kThey are planning to open up a rooftop bar...I am looking forward to it.

I was in the NYC area, visiting from Miami and contacted Charisse to make reservations. She was AWESOME! VERY IMFORMATIVE . I purchased this groupon because it looked like a nice chill spot to hang out, while in Brooklyn. We went on a Thursday night and it was the best time of our entire trip. We loved the medley of entertainment. The poetry, singing, and comedy. The band White Powder was definetly DOPE! Beef empanadas and peach moscato were delicious and reasonably priced. Only thing I would change is the lack of ventilation! WHOAH WAS IT HOT IN THERE! Otherwise, cant wait till next year!

I have been to Simplicity maybe five times before purchasing this Groupon and I love this place. Its right in my neighborhood, walking distance, so I've been to the comedy night, open mic night, I spent the fourth of July here, as well just coming here for a regular night. The owners are nice and the drinks are affordable. My two favorite drinks are the peach Moscato and the sangria mixed with something, but its really good and comes in a brandy class. I would highly recommend to anyone. This Groupon actually gave me the opportunity to try the cheese platter for the first time :)

Pros: The food was great (sandwiches and appetizer and drinks and desserts), the owners and relatives were nice, very warm and knowledgeable. The space was very pretty. Great place for friends to go, or dates Cons: We sat at the benches because I didn't feel comfortable leaving my back open to the outside so late at night. It was also VERY hot and the doors/windows being open did not help. Two good 14,000 BTU fans would be awesome. It also took a very long time for the food to come out. Maybe 20-25 min for each part of the meal even though we ordered everything at once. I think only 1 person was cooking, but we were also the only customers there. I loved the place regardless. I'll be back.

Great atmosphere for a date night or to celebrate a b-day. Selection of wines are amazing, if your indecisive ask for bartender Andrew his the best. A cozy manhattan feel in the heart of Brooklyn. Plus mix in the belly dancer on Saturdays, good Dj can't wait to go back!!

From Our Editors

After five years managing a retail store, Ana realized she wanted to sell something else entirely: food. So she enrolled in culinary school, where she first honed the skills she now displays at Simplicity Wine Bar & Cafe. Her tapas range from spicy veggie empanadas served with pineapple-mango aioli to cayenne-spiced chocolate cupcakes. With numerous organic varietals to boot, a frequently updated selection of wine by the glass and bottle complements Ana's cuisine and confections.

When eyes aren't glued to Ana's artfully plated dishes, they're probably busy taking in Simplicity's nightly entertainment. The lineup includes plenty of café staples, such as poetry nights, open mics, and Sunday afternoon concerts by award-winning guitarist Jorge Arévalo Mateus. On weekends, live DJs convert the bar into a dancehall by spinning classic reggae and hip-hop tunes.
