So it might be a general rule to assume, I would guess, for any restaurant, anywhere.

So far so good. i then inquired if I may bring a special wine along. The answer I received was yes, but a corking fee of 50 NIS would be applied. Acceptable. When we arrived we were seated and asked for one wine to be chilled(Champagne style for dessert) and that the other be opened for our meal. We were then told that since the Wine Bar sells those wines we could not use them! When I called to make the reservation no one mentioned that contingency or inquired which wine wine we were planning to bring, only that it had to be Kosher. When i brought it up to the manager that we were misinformed by their staff she only said she was sorry and there was nothing she can do. Very disappointing way of doing business.
