We went out for dinner to this restaurant on a Saturday night. The place was quite busy, but we had made a reservation and were shown directly to our table in the middle of the dining room, by the kitchen (I do like restaurants with open kitchens).
In spite of being very busy, the server was excellent - always there when we needed him, but not bugging us. He asked if we knew the tapas principle (we did), and so didn't give us the lecture (which we appreciated - respect your customers, don't treat them like children).
We ordered the hand-cut fries, mac and four-cheese gratin, Mediterranean trio, pretzel sliders, and the chicken tostados. The food came as it was ready, in true tapas style, so it was always fresh. Every dish was really tasty, and we had enough food for the two of us. Lots of nice flavours and textures, and the plating was very attractive.
Our only criticism of the place was the loudness of it - this was definitely because we were there on a Saturday night, but the place had more of a bar feel than a restaurant. Tall ceilings with no sound-baffles helped make the space feel like a wall of noise. Got to say that the music selection was great - a real mix of good tunes. It was loud, to be heard above the noise of the customers, which made the customers be even louder. Not a place on this night for a quiet conversation, or a romantic dinner!
If you like that lively bar feel, then this is definitely a great experience. We are looking forward to trying it on a week night and hope that we will be able to have a conversation without having to shout at each other across the table.
