This is definitely a splurgey night out, as most tapas places are -- but the food was absolutely fantastic, and our final bill was more afforable than expected. I appreciated that they had carafes available, along with an excellent wine list and fun cocktail options. The swordfish and the oysters were especially great. Loved it!

Food is excellent. We've been there three times over last 7 months always eating at the bar. We live 2 blocks away.

Every time, the kitchen is about to close in 15 minutes when we arrive on time for our Open Table reservation. Most recent meal was a Monday night. Other two meals also Open Table reservations when there were more Covid restrictions. Restaurant has an amazing number of staff so they must be doing something right.

I strongly believe the restaurant should cut back on their Open Table available times. Come on, it was a $170 meal for two that had no ambience because we were forced to sort through the long menu very quickly and then watch the staff put away an amazing number of clanking plates and dishes.

Bartender who takes our orders is great. Server dropped the Calamar bouncing some onto the counter. Went to bathroom. Came out. Staff had smashed a glass they were putting away on the floor. "Watch out for the glass." Where's the broom. Why are you just standing there? We're used to included service in Europe. I don't know if included service builds teamwork here.

Anyway. The food is reliably excellent. Just don't take the last available reservation

Delicious from start to finish. Everything we tried was outstanding. So fresh and well-plated. Got seated at the bar. Bartender/servers were knowledgeable with suggestions. The Peruvian chocolate dessert was one of the best I’ve had in a long time and so simple.

They automatically included 20% tip - which was slightly frustrating because if it were up to me I would have personally tipped 16-17%. I understand that it was a busy night but they kept trying to take away our plates when we still had food (they did this multiple times). Every time they poured water into our cups, it spilled everywhere on the table (they didn't even bother wiping it). Every time they brought out the food, they slammed it on the table... didn't even tell us what it was (honestly, not a big deal). The over experience was very unpleasant given that we were catching up with old time friends. Our table spent over $100/person .. so it wasn't like we were being cheap/rude customers. On the menu, it does mention that you can tip a different % but you would have to bring it up to management. We didn't want to do that and kill the vibe that night. In conclusion, we were super excited to check out this new restaurant but I wouldn't recommend it. The food was mediocre... drinks were mediocre... The only saving grace that evening was the company (catching up with old friends). There are a lot of other exciting/better restaurants in south end !

Couples night out. Four of us ate inside for a weekday dinner at 7pm. Ordered paella, calamar, canjero with homemade chips, pork coppa, roasted cauliflower, and rainbow carrots. There’s a pretty good variety of wine and cocktails. Also tried the dark chocolate dessert (there’s just one dessert option). All the dishes were excellent. The wait service was also super friendly and capable. I think it helped that there’s an auto gratuity of 20%.

Next time, we’ll opt to eat outside if the weather is good. It was a pretty full house and the noise level inside was loud.
