“The absolute BEST”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

I went there upon a recommendation from the hotel staff and a waiter. I did not regret going there one bit. The food was amazing. I had the French Toast, which was simply amazing. The service is excellent. Highly recommend this place

“Tasty n Delicious”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

In our party of 4, none of us ordered a dinner meal. we were able to order several (6-8) small bites to share. IT was a great way to try a number of new foods at a new place. We all loved it. Magnificent food, so tasty and delicious. The place was busy on a Wednesday evening so we sat outside. The outdoor seating is not the best, we really felt like we were in the middle of the sidewalk, but it was better than having to wait an hour.
The service was good, although they bordered on pretentious and condescending. They acted liked we should be these well educated "foodies" and should know all about their food and small plate concept. We had to ask a lot of questions, because they didn't volunteer any information unless you asked.

“Tasty Indeed!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

We stopped in for a few drinks and a quick bite before the soccer all-star game on a beautiful Wednesday evening. Location is a short 6 block or so walk to the stadium, and one of the closest really good eating spots.

The main restaurant seating area was not yet open as it was only 4:30 or so, but they were serving drinks and food in the bar and at the tables out on the sidewalk. We grabbed a couple of seats at the bar, where the service was quick and friendly. The vibe was loud and boisterous, high energy, kind of like a high end sports bar with great food. The specialty cocktail ordered by my wife was remarkably tasty and refreshing (her words) and my standard Sapphire dry martini did not disappoint.

Ordering off the happy hour menu, she had the pate plate, which arrived with two nice sized pieces of pate along with several slices of bread, a very tasty mustard, and a pile of olives and baby dill pickles. I had the chili dog, which featured a high end hot dog on a perfectly crisp bun, covered in a complex spiced chili garnished with cheese. Both dishes featured generous portions, we came hungry and left full.

We will definitely be back to try the breakfast and dinner menus.

We ended up having more of a brunch than breakfast as we had originally planned but everything was terrific. Our server did a great job of making sure we had a nice variety of dishes to try and that we ordered the right amount of food for our group. Everyone's favorite was the Hangtown Fry. Worth the wait!

“Tasty is very Tasty”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Great pick on a warm summer night. Patio seating at this downtown location and large dining room. Warning avoid kitchen bar seats unless you like being really hot. The food is spanish influenced tapas. We had the "simple salad" which turned out perfectly dressed with greens and heirloom radishes. We also tried the Portugese fish stew which also had asian flavors and was filled with cod and clams in a crazy good broth. Lamb Rack tandori was perfectly cooked and the duck duck potatoes elevated the simple spud. Definately a repeat. Brunch menu looked good too. Wish they took reservations as it was still crazy busy at 9 and had more half bottles of wine available...
