    We had a fabulous time, the food was over the top delicious and we made another reservation for next week!!! The menu is really interesting and we wanted to try everything, so we did a large selection of tapas and some pasta. The octopus and croquettes were some of the best I have ever had. The gnocci was super light and had a wonderful smokey flavor. Really cool decor too. Young hip waitstaff. The place was completely packed, very lively and fun.

    This place had AMAZING reviews about how good the food was, but it turned out to be just okay. The food wasn't bad by any means, but it was average at best.

    Ambiance was very nice, it had a modern/lounge style but not pretentious. Service was excellent. Super nice and helpful. First I have to say, the table bread there was outstanding. It is fresh, soft, and warm. Maybe it was because I got there at 7pm and so we got the stuff just out of the oven. Get: The french fries! We tore through them. They were seasoned with an herb salt and fried to perfection. Don't get: The Pan Seared Miso Glazed Black Sea Bass. It was cooked well but lacked flavor. I couldn't even taste the Miso. It was blander than expected. final thought: Great place for a night out of drinks and tapas. I'm willing to give the entrees another shot and try something different.

    Fantastic experience, definitely coming back. Can't beat their $1 Oysters during happy hour. We got 2 dozen oysters for $24 and their half rack ribs were fantastic too. Waitstaff was extremely friendly, and accommodating. Especially since it was my bf's birthday.

    Loved 508. The menu is very creative and there are plenty of choices - from smaller dishes, tapas or appetizers to entrees. I had the miso glazed sea bass which was superb. The salads were all delicious as well. I like the decor which is cozy and funky. It was a Tuesday evening and there were only a few tables with diners, so it was very quiet. Since it's in an area of Soho that has less foot traffic, I hope people will seek it out. It deserves it.

    It was a Sunday so the place was empty and it was nice. It looked cool and we were going to enjoy ourselves. However most of the tapas were not good. It's weird that I would ever think of this as something important but all of their plates had the wrong accents. like crabcake with sardine sauce...or saltier calamari with some type of spice. place was cool tho. just need to pick your way around the menu. salads were good.
