We went with a group - they did a good job accommodating 6 of us. The tapas were decent at best - not a huge selection. Good value though. Do not order the paella but would recommend the croquetas.

We received an excellent service from our waitress even if she was working all the place by herself.
The music was great, the volume was right, not too noisy.
The food was great, not expensive.
I had a great birthday celebration with 20 of my friends.

This is the perfect low key place for delicious and reasonably priced tapas that will transport you to an alleyway in Madrid.

We arrived for our reservation, only to observe that the restaurant was not yet open. We were told to come back 15 minutes later. When we came back, we were the only people in the restaurant other than a number of people from the bar next door who wanted to use the bathroom. Considering the lack of people in the restaurant, it was surprising that we had to ask three times for the check. This was quite unfortunate considering how good the food was.

I celebrate my birthday, and it worked fantastically. The people were attentive to serve all the drink and food that we asked. At 11:30 they clear the place, so we could dance.

A hidden gem for sure. Good and fast service, definitely not overcrowded as some other popular places. We ordered soup and tapas and it was very tasty, flavorful and authentic. Go for it!

A little noisy because they do Bachata dancing every other Tuesday (second and 4th) Definitely would want to go back for this. A lot of fun. Really cute. Great food. Great atmosphere.

Food was not the best, the atmosphere was good and the music was great. As the small space started getting dangerously packed, it got so hot it felt like a sauna. I would only recommend it for the music.

Food was good, but nothing that special. The sangria was good, and they seem to have decent beer on tap. The most interesting thing about the place is that it hosts Tuesday evening dance lessons at 7pm, which actually looked like a fun thing to do with a bunch of friends. We were the only customers until about 7pm, then the place was packed. Good friendly vibe form a diverse bunch of people. I wouldn't go there for the food only, but seems like a potential hangout place for a group of friends.

The tapas here are great and reasonably priced. It has late hours (4 a.m.) so a great late night spot but we have always come on the early side before a show at City Winery. It may be quiet (you may be almost the only ones there at that hour) but the food is worth it.

We arrived in time for our reservation on a Saturday night but the restaurant wasn't quite open yet. The door was unlocked but music was off & chairs/tables were up. We called to double check and the owner was surprised that they weren't open yet. It was really strange. One of the servers let us in while they were setting up but after 15 minutes we just couldn't do it. We were not able to try the food but the overall ambiance and situation were so bad that we won't try again.

Although small, it's good for just two people or small groups of people. The small plates are good - you can order a mix of them and have enough to eat while drinking. Great happy hour and nice Latin music playing in the background. After 7/7:30, it can get a bit noisy around the bar, but are chatting, no worries of anyone else hearing you.

I made reservations here for a tapas dinner and although there are tapas, it is primarily a bar and my table was the only table that ordered food.

Went after work with two other friends and was nicely surprised. The tapas menu had a nice variety of choices and the food was good. The place is small so if you go with a group, it should be a small group. Suggest making reservations for more than 3 people. Kana has outdoor seating. The service was good but I could see that as it got later in the evening, more people came. They also played good background music that made me want to dance.

An absolutely extremely disappointing experience. Dreadful below standard food. We ordered the shrimp and we were delivered old, rubbery reheated shrimp coated in a terribly over garlicked sauce. I had to send them back. The croquettes were inedible as they were synthetic tasting. Like a hideous budget-brand frozen product. I'm unsure what the chorizo actually was but it was like nothing I've ever seen. Basically old scraps of sausage. The calamari was clearly frozen also and everything that was fried seemed to have been fried in old, reused oil. We drank the Chilean Cabernet Sauvingnon and that tasted like a $5 bottle of cooking wine from Trader Joes. Oh - and the bread they gave out was stale at the ends. And the patatas bravas were rank. So basically please stay away from this restaurant. It was EMPTY when we arrived at 915 tonight. All the restaurants adjacent to it were buzzing. We should've trusted our instincts and walk away upon entry.

An out-of-the-way, small, brick-walled café with a bar and a few outside tables, Kañas offered tapas from a diverse menu. We ordered a sangria (so-so) & a Belgian beer (good) and four tapas: chorizo, ,gambas al ajillo, jamón serrano, and croquetas. All were generously served and excellent.

We were surprised that the place was not owned by a Spaniard but by two partners, an Argentine and a Uruguayan. The wait staff is Mexican.

What a find. Excellent food with friendly service. Our waitress, Angela, made great recommendations and was very attentive. We had the grilled vegetables, shrimp, meatballs and octopus. Each wonderfully unique with different flavors. We will return next time in Soho.

It was a group dance event night yet they took reservations for dinner through open table. It worked out okay as we found a nice restaurant nearby (Giorgione) but don't understand why they would do that to customers!

It's a typical rather than avant-garde tapas menu, but all very tasty, with good options for both carnivores and vegetarians. The service can be a little flaky, however. But its great strength is that it's a great place to go with a group. Except in the summer, when the outdoor seating sometimes gets crowded, on weeknights and before 8 on weekends, it's generally not too crowded.
