    Had a lovely, relaxing evening enjoying tapas on the restaurant's outside patio. Even with a vegetarian and a gluten allergy, there were plenty of tapas for our group to share. The roasted vegetable board was a great vegetarian option in lieu of regular charcuterie, and the mushrooms were fantastic. Our server Chalan was friendly and knowledgable, and double checked ingredients for us.

    We always have a great experience at Debajo. Monica was a terrific server. The food, the wine, all wonderful. We love the Debajo salad, the De Vaca, Aguacate Frito, Patatas Bravas, Manchego Frito. So many wonderful flavors. The small patio is enclosed on all sides for an intimate feeling space. They have sun shades too but once the sun has moved past mid day there is shade from the building as the patio is on the east side. Try something new; give Debajo a chance.

    We have enjoyed Debajo on two recent visits. The service is great and the food is very tasty although temperature of some of the dishes seems a bit inconsistent (a dish that was served piping hot on the first visit was lukewarm the second time.) My biggest complaint is that although the beverage menu says coffee and hot tea are available, they actually aren’t. On the first visit my husband and son both ordered coffee. After a very long wait, the server came back with 2 Keurig pods and said that was all they had. The guys decided to go for it, but the coffee they were served was basically brown water and the cream that came with it curdled when added to the coffee. (We were not charged.). We didn’t even try on the second visit, but listened to the party at the next table go through a similar discussion. Seems like they should either get a proper coffee maker or take it off the menu.

    I love my neighborhood tapas place! The ambiance is awesome, like you’re in Spain! I think they are short-staffed right now as most of the service industry is, so patience and understanding will make a visit more pleasurable! Wine list is great. They were out of my favorite avocado dish at 8 pm on a Saturday. Other favorites are manchego cheese dish and mushroom dish. Service was fine. Overall a great experience.

    Very good food, wine, and service. Cozy atmosphere, although rather loud. I would suggest to them that they install some noise absorption panels near the ceiling. But hey, it feels more like Spain when it’s really noisy. I like this place and definitely would go back again.

    Two of the dishes we ordered were fantastic, one was mediocre, and one had ham on it that was not listed in the ingredients on the menu. Really avoidable. We sent it back. Our server was very spacey and would bring out dishes and wander around to find the table to which they belonged.

    The service was terrible. We were waiting excessively long for each dish. We were told one of our dishes had the order mixed up. We had to ask for a water glasses to be filled multiple times. Extremely loud and difficult to Caryonah conversation. The food was overall good but given the overall experience was over priced. Will not be going back there anytime soon.

    Too crowded for COVID safe distance, and several of the servers were wearing their masks below their chins, so that was unsafe too. There was a loud party who dominated the restaurant, so that was unfortunate. Although the food we got was good, several tapas we ordered never got to us and neither was the wine I ordered, until I asked several times. The server was apologetic and polite, but still disappointing given the price of the food, and how long we had waited to start going out again.
