    I was at Tapas and Tinis with a small group, and we had a great time. Our waitress was exceptionally good, attentive without hovering, and she had helpful suggestions. Food was great, drinks were outstanding.

    This has been one of my favorite restaurants since it opened but management recently decided to re-invent the place to make it more appealing for everyday dining. Unfortunately they did so by adding a few inexpensive Tapas and raising the prices of everything else. Several dishes were served covered with a huge pile of crispy onions requiring the diner to remove much of the dish to get to the actual food. Service was slow and my own dish arrived 10 plus minutes after the rest of my table. My favorite lamb shank rose in price from $16 to $26 forcing me to try the hanger steak--good but no lamb shank. This used to be a very nice restaurant with very reasonable prices but management has ruined a good thing.

    They were able to accomodate our group of 12 easily and comfortably. Service was attentive, though a little slow. Their menu has a nice selection of food, though hardly any vegan (egg free, dairy free) appetizers. It is a nice touch that they indicate which items are gluten free (denoted GF on the menu). The drinks we ordered were great, and they have a very extensive list of fun cocktails. The food is good, but for some reason I had higher expectations. My paella needed some hot sauce to give it some more of a flavor, and I am not a serial condiment user... same with my friend's vegetarian paella. The seafood was very nicely cooked. The appetizers were not particularly impressive, and quite skimpy. Portions are good size, not too generous.

    It was my first trip to O!O! Tapas and Tinis, and I will definitely be back. The atmosphere is cozy and it wasn't crowded at all on a Friday night for dinner. I dined on the Duck Breast special, with a cranberry sauce, wild mushroom risotto and sauteed vegetables. The duck skin was not totally rendered and it was a particularly chewy cut, but overall, the dish was really good. The wild mushroom risotto was better than any I've had in a recent memory. My date had the Bleau Cheese Steak flatbread. Despite the overabundance of crispy onions, she said it was still great and the crust was perfect. Overall, the experience was great, as was the service. We will definitely come back again.

    The food was good. although the French Onion Soup was a little bland. It took some pepper and salt to bring the flavor up. The Scallops were very fresh and tasty. The Salmon also was fresh and prepared to our liking. The risotto still lacks the knack of a truly Italian risotto, but it was a good side dish. Too bad that the person that seated us didn't know how to use the reservation system, because instead of crediting our reservation, she cancelled it. The good people at open table corrected the problem.

    Out of several items. Server nice but not very well trained. Manager never came to table. Bill incorrect. While the food was good, the whole experience, which was to be a celebration, was disappointing. I would not recommend nor will I ever go back.

    This was my first visit. To be as fair as possible, my steak was cooked perfectly and was tasty. The appetizer’s and sides left something to be desired. My wife had fish and chips and it was not very good (soggy and a bit fishy). You might say, why go to a restaurant like this and order such a thing... well then, they shouldn't serve it. The service was impersonal but efficient. The prices were slightly high, especially on the drink menu. Good for a date night if you order well. Personally, for the money I can find something better.

    I have eaten at O!O several times. I assume they have good food based on my friends always enjoying their entrees. I like the Lamb Shank so much, however, that that is all I ever get. It is delicious!

    The food here is excellent. Pick any Tapa, you can't go wrong, they are all very good. My favorite entree is the Flat Iron Steak, perfect, it is delicious and served with mashed potatoes and fried onion strings. The wine list has a nice selection of excellent choices. The only downside was that our waitress was over-intrusive and a little awkward when she interacted with us, but not enough to ruin our evening.

    It was very empty for being a Friday night. I figure it was due to it being a holiday weekend. The server was friendly. The food came out a little slow for what I would expect with the lack of patrons. Unfortunately my steak was so under cooked it was not edible. For the amount of time it took to come out I decided to send the steak back and just eat the sides not wanting to wait any longer. The risotto was over cooked. The asparagus was cooked well. The only apology was given by the server, stating that it was a new menu item and they are not used to cooking it. I would not recommend this place to anyone and will myself not be going back.
