City Winery sucks

Or am I overreacting? A group of six of us are attending a New Yorker Festival event on Friday night at City Winery, so although the reviews here have been mixed, we'd figured it'd be convenient to eat there before the event. So several weeks ago I made a reservation on OpenTable. I got a call from them this weekend, several weeks after I had booked the reservation and less than a week before the event is scheduled, telling me that they're not open for dinner that night and thus are canceling my reservation. Now, of course, all of the better alternatives are booked and we're scrambling for a last-minute reservations. When I griped, they said they would make it up to me by buying me a glass of wine on my next visit. I assured them that there would be no next visit.
