    Only complaints are (1) valet parking cost. Recommend you park on the street or just around the corner. After 6:00 parking is free on the street. (2) Waiter disappeared. Had to excuse myself from the table of guests to locate the waiter to get bill. Not acceptable when they add 18% graituidy. Note new menu - more tapas.

  • At Least the Sangria hasn't changed
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 3/16/2013
    I have always loved D'Cache - since my first visit there in early 2009. I still LOVE the place - the atmosphere... the ambiance... the live music! My friends that I went with on this last visit have all gone with me before and we all agreed: we prefer the former chef. The new executive chef, Phillip Lee, has switched up the appetizers & entrees to traditional tapas plates. It was a bit of a disappointment not to have the delicious apps & plates that we had before, but these new tapas will do - they're just not to the same level. Don't get me wrong, the new chef is very fancy, fru fru & gourmet with foams and emulsions, but lacking on depth. At least they haven't touched their prized sangria recipe!

    Well... As for opentable; they screwed up by booking us a table when the restaurant was completely book. When we got there they honored our reservation even due to the mistake and treated us great. Service was great and food was unreal. Glad the honored the reservation cause now they have a repeat customer that's for sure. I highly recommend this place and will definitely go back soon.

    A bit disappointed this time for serveral reasons and bragged to good friends adn high rated official who were our guests. We had to apologize. Here are disappointments: 1. New Chef and gone Tapas. NO ENTREES. Paealla(sp?) which was hightlight for restaurant in past very bland adn Tapas size. Tapas makes much more expensive. 2. Corkage fee now $25.00. OUTRAGEOUS, particularly for that restaurant. 3. Regular good size Martini glasees replaced with small round champagne type glasses Chaep looking and and highly unprofessional and tiny. Nice to try new things....but this just doesn't work and if continues we will not be able to continue to dine with guests there. Owner needs to take control.

    Dined on 2/14/2013
    I've been to D'Cache on a regular night, sat inside, and the ambiance was great! The spanish guitar, the warm feel, etc. I also remember the food being wonderful. It was fun to try different plates. And, the sangria, as it usually is, was great. On Valentine's Day things weren't so good. The set menu, which wasn't mentioned to me when the reservation was confirmed, was strange...only choice of entree was scallops, lamb or vegetarian (brussel sprouts)?! Strange choices to me. Some of the food came out room temperature or slightly cold. Also, for desert you only got to choose 1 thing between the 2 of you...so you had to share. Romantic, yes...cheap, yes! Finally, the patio had no ambiance and smelled like cigarettes.

    We had a fabulous experience here. It was a Wednesday evening so, it was quiet but, I doubt it is quiet on the weekend. We had the tasting menu which was superb. We loved every bite. The dishes were unique and innovative. This is a chef who is definitely into trying new things and succeeding. I will definitely return!

    Going through changes. Won't return with guests if only small plates and no longer entre's. Portions small. Paealla (excuse spelling) used to be outstanding. New Chef and not so good in quality, content or portions. Seems to be going slowly downhill. No more real martini glasses (cheap rounded champaign glasses).

    My friends and I decided to go this restaurant very last minute so I did not read any reviews prior to going and I did not know what to expect. When we got there, our table was right by the live performers so I got little nervous but it turned out to be a lot of fun. Our waiter was very witty and fun. He helped us order different items. Their pizza's were really good. The food was good. I really enjoyed the overall experience. The performers took breaks so it wasn't like we had music playing right by our ears the entire night. There were lots of parties celebrating different occasions so they all got off their seats and they were dancing around us. I would definitly go back.

    Adorable old Spanish House, Fun crowd with live music, delicious food, good bar crowd, pretty and quiet outdoor patio, numerous rooms to choose from! Lovely old Spanish style house in the middle of Toluca Lake. Food was spanish tapas, meats/fish; all rich and delicious. Old movies play on the wall until the latin/fusion/jazz band starts. A great find in the middle of quiet Toluca Lake. It's like nothing else in the area.

    My expectations were high for this restaurant and this special evening I was hosting for a birthday celebration, and they were met!The restaurant decor and ambience was inviting. Lighting dimmed appropriately for the setting. Our waiter, Joseph, was outstanding.He was very helpful assisting our selection of tapas and wines that suited our taste preferences. My friends would have preferred a better selection of wines.The tapas platter was just right particularly the falling-off-the-bone baby short ribs. Paella was enjoyed and the lamb chops and rib eye steak very good and med.rare as requested. The entertainment started a little late, but we thoroughly enjoyed it and will be a main reason to come back and bring friends. Great evening!

    We booked an 11:00am luncheon reservation. It was the only restaurant in the are that offered an early 11:00am reservation. The chef and bartender did not arrive until 11:30pm The restaurant was pleasant enough to sit at our table and erin only water. By the time the staff arrived we saw our food arrive quickly which indicated the food had been propped the day before. It still tasted wonderful. The service was efficient, the ambiance full of old world charm. THE COTTAGE IS TUCKED AWAY OFF THE BLD AND YOU FEEL REMOVED FROM THE HUSTLE & BUSTLE ONCE SAFELY INSDE.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/4/2012
    The tables are far too small for four adults to seat comfortable no leg room. Not enough table surface for all the oversized plates. Our plates hung over the edges. Plates are bigger than the tables. A 6 ounce piece of fish on a plate that’s 14” square makes the entrée non appetizing and lost. The chairs are uncomfortable to low and wobbly. Prices are too high, not in line with the food offered. I must say the service was very good. Forgot the utensils were not the cleanest.

    Very cool 1928 Spanish style bungalow. I booked the reservation on a Fri evening expecting a quiet romantic evening with good food and wine. When we arrived the hostess graciously took us on a tour of the restaurant. We were seated at a table where an AC vent blew cold air at my back all night. Our reservation was for 8:30, at 9:15 the band fired up and we had to yell to hear each other speak. It would be nice if they would hold down the level at least for the first set, though the second set was even louder. We ordered the specialty Paella, good flavor but rice was mushy, meat overcooked. Sampler appetizer was excellent, ribs a bit overcooked, good sauce. We'll probably give it another try, working around aforementioned disappointments.

    The food was unique and delicious. The flavors were well balanced and menu items were clever and unlike other restaurants. The service was friendly, as though they were genuinely glad we were there. The building is romantic, but not ostentatious. Diners can be comfortable in any attire. The music was loud enough to enjoy but not so loud we couldn't talk comfortably. This was one of the best dining experiences I've had in a very long time.

    Highlight is the live entertainment on Friday nights (Flamenco Music). We had to interrupt the hostess to get seated (talking to a waiter) and they asked us to move after they seated us to make room for another reservation (we had reservations too..). Our waiter was excellent but served a large number of guests so it was difficult to get his attention at times. The tapas was very good but could benefit from a wider variety. Latin music videos played on a big screen with live music later in the evening which made for a warm and vibrant atmosphere. Overall an enjoyable experience.

    Awful! Now mind you it ws valentines day and expectations were low since everyone says, don't go to eat on V Day. This place was packed. Why! Our server was the bar manager, the busboy, and the hostess. So you can imagine how over worked she was. Clueless too that her tables were waiting for the bill, waiting for food, waiting for water refill. I went to talk to the owner who could care less. Wow that lady is awful! The only good thing was the music when it wasn't blarring in your ear. Never ever will return!
