I always love Spanish tapas. The restaurant staff were very friendly. He seated me right away even though my friend was late for 30 mins. The food was well prepared and flavorful. Overall we loved it and will definitely return.

The best bottomless brunch we’ve ever had. The food was delicious and tonnes of it. Our servers Barry & Sara were great and incredibly attentive, our glasses were never empty.
Great atmosphere too!

food was mediocre Spanish. much deep fried, portions pretty small, but prices big. cannot get another seat in the restaurant. super crowded and consequently noisy and hard to move around anywhere. Service for our table was very good however. only if convenient....

Great food and service at a very happening and fun place! The roasted potatoes with aioli are outstanding, and so was the eggs benedict and Bloody Mary!

Arrived earlier than the reservation, but still got seated no problem. Service was amazing, attentive without feeling like there was hovering, and actually told us we had time to enjoy brunch rather than rushing us through. Amazing, and would definitely go back.

When we arrived, party of 5, our table was not ready. After a short wait, Ashton and others went into “please the customer mode.” A round of cava, and a few options were offered. We could put 5 at a table for four, and when the desired table was ready, they would move us. That is what happened. The staff was apologetic and gracious.

Delicious tapas restaurant on the UES. The food was fresh and flavorful. My husband and i enjoyed the artisan cheese platter, the patatas, and the chicken which was recommended and so tender and juicy. A great find in the neighborhood.

Really good food, especially the croquetas. Not a big fan of the chicken... I didn’t love the herbs.

Best tapas I've had in the city. Lamb skewers and meatballs were excellent and the corn tapa was scrumptious. Definitely go for the chef's menu; it was a wonderful experience.

The drinks were inconsistent. I had recently eaten at Boqueria Soho and ordered a pitcher of Sangria and was delicious. I ordered the same here and was watered down and when told the server she did nothing about it. We had to order individual cocktails that were much better. At the end of it all I paid for an expensive watered down pitcher of juice.

First visit, and very enjoyable. Lamb skewers with shallots and salsa verde were very tasty, not too spicy. The Bocata with Serrano and manchego was delicious and a manageable portion even with the potato. Mediterranean bowl had perfectly grilled tuna and chewy black rice, a nice combination. Attentive service and a decent wine list--a Spanish rose was just right.

Food ranged from excellent to stunningly good! Very good service also.
Why is it so hard to find a really excellent restaurant in Manhattan that is quiet enough for civilized dinner conversation?

Great food and horrendous service. Our waiter kept bringing us the wrong drinks and the waitress who was working with him basically threw our food at us. I will not return to this restaurant and will likely discourage others from doing so as well.

Went for prix fix brunch. Food is great deal for brunch but it’s lot of food. Drinks however, i didn’t like much. Our waiter offered to make us a fresh sangria and it was awesome! Love the customer service at every location of this restaurant. Very friendly staff.

Food came much too quickly, obviously pre-cooked for some items. One course never arrived at all. Super noisy, uncomfortable seating.

We very much enjoyed all the food and the albarino wine here. The service was great - the staff worked as a team and we were served quickly and efficiently. It's very noisy (unless you can score a table outside - weather permitting), so not a place to go if you want to have a long conversation .

This was my first time to have a lunch. I tried kale salad and squid dish which was delicious. My guest ordered a chicken dish. We shared custard caramel and almond cake. Everything was delicious. There was only one waiter but he was attentive. I recommend this restaurant to others.

Wonderful nice place, just a bit too noisy everywhere. Maybe there should be a little section where the multitute of speakers are not bearing down on customers. Or volume could be lowered. Otherwise a great spot!

Dinner was horrible. We arrived for our reservation and were seated at a 2-top banquet surrounded on all sides by unbussed - dirty tables (at least 7 tables in direct sight covered with dirty dishes, glasses, food particles, and napkins). Coming from a hospitality background ourselves this is completely unacceptable but could be explained by circumstances sometime beyond management control. The errs didnt stop. Food was horrible, poorly and timed. Service was even worse. Really a disappointment in what is generally a solid meal for us at other locations. We will never return.
