Quiet, intimate, foodie little place. Great for pre-theater. Johnny our waiter was delightful and informative. He knew the menu inside and out and was very attentive. Loved the brisket eggrolls. Many unusual creations on the menu. We will be back.

What a surprise! Small hotel, small lobby, small restaurant, small menu, but excellent food and service. Our server, Jesus, was knowledgeable and familiar with each dish and wine we ordered, as well as being attentive, personable and lovely. All plates were delicious, but the dessert of raspberry sorbet and chocolate Grenache with a touch of tobacco was mind-blowing!

Every time we go to bar Garcia, we have a wonderful experience. We have tried most plates on the menu and loved every single one. Juan Pablo, the chef and owner, is a genius. He has the ability to combine flavors and ingredients that make each plate a work of art.
The waiters are respectful, kind and friendly. They are very attentive and anticipate any need that he customer has.
A worthwhile experience!

I just had my birthday dinner here with a group of 10 people. The food was so terrific, unique, creative, tasty, and fresh. The tapas menu is great to share with a large group. There are vegan and non-vegan options which are fantastic. And, the service was very good and on point. This place is a hidden gem. I am happy and will come here often!

Wonderful brunch before a Clippers afternoon game. Brisket spring rolls are delicious! And the pancakes are quite tasty. Enjoy.
