    Not the best waiter, food was lack luster. But I will say the wagyu wontons were great. Everything else wasn’t great not even the express martini. We had to wait an hour for each course. 3/10 for me and mine

    First the actual restaurant is so cool when you get inside, my girlfriend looked like she was in a Wes Anderson sitting across from me with the huge cushioned wall behind her. Second, the food was amazing, can't recommend the flaming cheese, pork belly, and octopus enough. The service was good, especially considering our waiter was triple sat, and he was dealing with a bar that couldn't keep up with the kitchen. That means our food came promptly, fresh, and hot... drinks were another story. Overall it was a great date night out and a great adventure to Columbus from Cincinnati.

    Wonderful Tapas place with wonderful food. A bit noisy but wasn’t too much of a problem. Seated right away. Food tasted great but really enjoyed the presentation as well. Get there earlier than reservation time as it is a challenge finding parking in this area since it is a hopping place

    We did the Chef’s tasting and got A LOT of food. It was all super good, we had our waiter pick all our food except two things. Everything he picked was very good! The scallops and cauliflower dish were the best :) Nice place for a date night. Tons of food to try.

    First visit. Nice space, we’ll try it again for dinner. The menu was limited but good. Though it wouldn’t hurt to add a few potatoes or fruit on the side of a very small Benedict. Drinks were great but took some time to get.

    The service and food we ordered were amazing, however they were out of many of the items on the menu we wanted to order. Hopefully it’s just the end of delivery week but I hope they can manage their inventory better for next time we go!

    Get the patatas bravas, pork belly and wagyu sliders and avoid the elote, Brussels salad, tostadas and anything over $20. It’s a tapas style menu, dishes inspired by many different cuisines but you are paying high prices for largely mediocre food. A lot of Instagramable dishes that look good but don’t taste good. I wouldn’t call it a high quality tapas style restaurant, just a place hoping to catch on for social media and stay relevant which is accurate for all of the restaurants owned by this group. There are much better tapas style restaurants in Columbus, don’t waste your time.

    I made reservations for my birthday this past Friday evening, and oh boy. Absolutely terrible !! can’t wait to speak to management. Upon arrival a staff member directed myself & 4 accompanying guest to a front booth. We sat adjacent from a party of 8 ladies again in the very front of the restaurant. Behind my booth you could tell the restaurant had just served a very large party & still needed to clean up. Kyler or Tyler was our waiter. My party placed our beverage & food order his first round ant our table. Some of which were shots and a couple of mixed drinks. We waited patiently to be served and 20 minutes goes by & still no Tyler/Kyler food or drinks. A side salad came out in addition to an order of Waygu skirt steak came to the table before our drinks made it. Tell me how steak is fully cooked and still no service at our table or a shot delivered. With a strong head count of 16 people present it’s sad. Sad service sad crowd and I’m assuming a sad collective of employees still upset about the former group/party that they had yet to clean up from. When the drinks finally made it I asked the woman if staff was slow tonight because the restaurant had two tables of guest & the rest employees . So again I asked with the intent for the woman to clarify the extended wait time with no attention from staff. She stated in a nasty tone that attitude was present & she wasn’t going to place the drinks down. I asked one of my guest to alert the kitchen to stop preparing meals. No longer would we sit and wait for staff that had no concern for the second table dinning in. Worst birthday dinner reservation ever. Tried something new with relatively decent reviews but as a collective Fireproof you suck. There’s no other way to put it. It was not a busy night but somehow service was slow as if the house was packed.
