it was one of the best restaurants in LA I've been so far! I love the little cozy garden and the fact that you enter trough a tunnel. Inside it feels like you are sitting in an old spanish tapas bar. I love the open bar menu and the selection of the small dishes. ABSOLUTELY WELL DONE!

Explored this restaurant 2019 Dine LA, brought a couple of friends! WOW—- from the lovely and considerate front person, who asked if we wanted to move as she was seating a party of 10 behind us which we did our new table gave us a bit of quiet even though near the kitchen.
NOW I’ll tell you about the menu- the entrees were excellent! I’m a harsh critic cause of my cooking skills. Perfect amount as they were small plates. The tasting menu began with cheeses and a salami choice of 2, my only wish is they had a sheep, goat and Cow because I don’t eat any cow cheese, the salami was good as was the goat cheese. For mains, 2 choices again excellent!!! We had Lamb kebabs, excellent , Osso Bucco - Amazing; crispy polenta YUM—- and stuffed mushrooms Wow! —- perfectly content... out came the dessert Bread pudding with Vanilla Gelato (I indulged and paid for it But... worth the tummy pain), the other dessert was delish but all dairy! Would have been nice a dairy/gluten free dessert!!! I’ll head back first I can get there.

This is a wonderful small gem if you are looking for something special. The entrance is a short tunnel which leads from the sidewalk on 3rd Street to the outdoor patio. The food was excellent. A good selection of very tasty shareable bites. Our server was nice but she got our drink order wrong. A concern we had was that the print on the menu was very small and difficult to read under candle light. Due to this, we were not able to see that wine by the glass is served in three different sizes. Make sure you specify how many ounces of wine you want or you may be billed the "unlimited" option which is $25. I informed the server who brought us the check. She apologized and said she would make the adjustment. Other than that, we had a great time!

Our visit was nothing short of amazing! The waitress was very polite and seated us right away. She was very friendly and informative. The restaurant specializes in small plates and we were aware of that before ordering. The amount of food is filling, especially the pasta! The food was amazing, hot, and fresh. I will definitely be returning next time I’m in LA.

Loved the atmosphere, the food was good for the most part. Portions were very small, and when we asked for more bread for our hummus and pate, they brought back one piece for 4 people. We thought it was hilarious...
Staff was friendly, and I would absolutely go back to hang and have a drink. The room was incredibly loud- I think avoiding peak hours is wise if that’s not your thing.

Food was phenomenal, service was great, ambiance was the best. The feeling we got walking through the stone hallway into the atrium was definitely part of the experience in finding this hidden gem. The French fries were an easy pick, but the best dishes were absolutely the lamb belly and stuffed eggplant. It was pretty crowded but added to the warmth of the place. I plan on coming back again and again.

This place is in my neighborhood so I waned it to be great. It’s good, not great. There’s a lot of competition on 3rd Street. Every bite tasted good but the portions are pretty micro. I appreciated the options for wine portions, I will go back for the ambience and ability to walk from my house.

We had a group of 11 and had a wonderful experience. Service was great. Some food orders took a little time to come out while others came in early. But servers were on top of it and constantly checked or apologized for any delays. Food was amazing and good sized for what are considered small plates. Oh and the outdoor setting was simply perfect.

Thanks!

The space is stunning. The staff is great. The food? Not so much. First of all, the menu doesn’t know what it wants to be. It’s not Mediterranean, it’s not Italian, Spanish, or American. The Fries BCN were supposed to be Papas Bajas like you find all over Spain but the sauce, which should be creamy and spicy, was thin and bland. The Caprese used cherry tomatoes which have far less flavor than a regular one. The Crispy Polenta had zero taste. The Crispy Skin Salman was horrible. The skin wasn’t crispy and the fish wasn’t fresh. I couldn’t wait to get that taste out of my mouth. The single saving grace of the meal was the seared scallops dish with corn. That was really good. We didn’t bother to stay for dessert
