The classic prefix is great! We were a party of 4 and got to try different plates, all chef choices and we loved everything. The croquetas are amazing. The paella had crunchy rice... All delicious. Good wine selection too and great service. Will come back

We’ve been there numerous times. We love this place and particularly like sitting at the counter by the kitchen where you can watch the food being prepared. Everything is good from drinks to appetizers to desserts.

We ordered a seafood paella and turkey dish. Since I am allergic to seafood , I let the waiter know. My turkey dish arrived 40 minutes before everyone’s paella. I know paellas take longer to make so this should’ve been considered beforehand so that all of our meals arrive at the same time and I don’t have to eat by myself on thanksgiving. Additionally , I had to ask the waiter TWICE for two glasses of sangria and dessert and ended up asking a different waiter. Our water wasn’t totally present and I didn’t appreciate the bad service.

Not good practice to not seat people for dinner until 5:30. We had to sit and start at the bar and continue our meal in the dining room after 5:30

It’s a small tight space for a table for 8. But the food compensated for this significant inconvenience. The server could be a little nicer. She had a frown the whole time as if she’s annoyed and it’s a bit unpleasant experience.

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.

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.

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 .
