I hosted a business dinner here for out of town guests and wanted to give them a nice unique food experience. I will never go back here again. The restaurant is beautiful and on a Thursday evening it wasn't very busy. Maybe that should have been my first sign. The food was absolutely horrid.
We ordered the poutine, drumsticks, grilled octopus, truffle mushroom, brussel sprouts, and the ribs. Most of the items tasted like old food they tried to reheat. And I mean "tried" because the food wasn't even hot except the truffle mushrooms. Then the brussel sprouts came out at the very end, all charred and gross.
For the amount of money for this place or even any place for that matter, this was my worst food experience ever! I was quite embarrassed. I usually don't write reviews but really had to this time. DO NOT GO HERE!
Great food and ambiance. Average (not so great) service. Waiters need to work on being more personable and nicer overall.
Great food, magical setting, excellent service. Will go back.
The food was really poor, not warm enough when it arrived and not as described on the menu, the atmosphere was ok but maybee some music and candles or something could definitly be added, a lot was missing to make it a good place to eat, couldn’t even find the entrance of the restaurant, the whole room was empty and very dead atmosphere. Overall cheap and very disappointing.
The tapas were fine but not special. However the. Ceviche was very good
Always love it here! New chef and new menu and some wonderful new additions. I did miss my Lobster Enchilada, but hoping chef will bring his own spin!
interesting twist on tapas with some excellent dishes. Knowledgeable and very professional service staff. Good wine list and again great recommendations from staff. Outdoor space particularly atmospheric and a haven of tranquillity. Restaurant was quiet only our group dining there. Would definitely recommend and revisit if I was ever in San Jose again.
Can’t say it enough, i love the food here and the menu especially. I love the creativity and quality of the menu and food. The drinks are actually really innovative as well. I usually come in once a month on average does that make me a regular?
Great place for foodies. Very romantic
Food was alright, but pricey. Place was pretty empty for Friday night.
Empty. No ambiance. Waitress did not know the menu.
Noone there very quiet
Food ok service adequate
With the good chef that they have, this place could be outstanding with a bit more effort. Ambience could have been so much better if they had tried. The space has some charm, but white paing, harsh lighting and hard surfaces made it noisy and too bright. A little investment in decor would make it so much better. The food was good, in particular the Tournedos and the Arrancini appetizer. The barbacoa was tasty but fatty. Brussels sprouts were overcooked; when we spoke to the waiter the chef sent a less cooked version, which were not overcooked but would have been better parbroiled before frying. Service was a bit spotty - we had to ask for clean plates between courses.
Food did not have flavor. Overall not a place I would come back due to food. Service was great!
A bit pricey, as the portions are very small plates, but really enjoyed everything we had. Food was tasty. Desserts were also delicious — the s’mores soufflé was amazing. We were shocked at how good it was! Will definitely go back.
The menu had several items which were unfamiliar to our group of well traveled and experienced diners. The overall presentation and flavors were wonderful, and the serving size was easily shared across our group of 5.
The wine flight was very good, and the cocktails were tasty and generous.
I would encourage the waiter to call attention to dishes which feature raw seafood, to ensure the guest understands how the meal is prepared.
We are so many delicious dishes that it’s hard to keep track of them all. While the menu is tapas style, our group decided to share a couple of dishes and then had individual meals that we didn’t share. We all loved our food and would for sure go back for more.
I'm not sure why this place has high reviews. The food quality is good but prep and execution does not live up to the price tag. Not really a tapas restaurant either. Prices are too high, portions are large though. Overall the flavor and execution doesn't make me want to eat here again. There are many better places to eat at, that command this price.
Good food and something different for a change of pace. Enjoyed the small plates.
I came in to try out some of the new menu and was blown away by just how good the brussels sprouts were… That was by far my favorite dish however the watermelon cucumber salad was tasty and delicious as well… The cocktails here are always on point… The service is great and the atmosphere is amazing especially out in the patio which is where I was this time. Oh and i can’t forget about the tiger prawns!
Fine dining costs but server wasninexpepeienced and inaccurate about menu and options. Would not go back.
Meh. Sterile atmosphere. Feels like you are eating in a service hall. Food okay. We won’t be back.
I love this place. It’s a great shift from your more traditional chain restaurants with high end/quality menus. Service is never an issue always solid. The cocktails are on point and creative. This time we had the Aranchinis and Skewered Steak (Dee-lish). This place is my go-to for friends when i feel like showing off some local knowledge :-)
Hard to locate in hotel, needs signage. Good food, good for sharing
Our first visit to Oveja Negra and it was great.
We made a reservation early in the evening before a movie and the place was empty (we were the first table as they first opened around 5:30) so the ambiance was just getting started.
We had the Signature Dish - the Oveja Negra Barbacoa (lamb roasted in banana leaves) was tasty and came with an extra bonus of bone marrow which was also baked into the tortillas. Lamb was very good, slightly dryer than I like on the inside, but very flavorful.
Other items I would recommend are the Chorizo Poutine (great comfort food and nice pairing between the mushroom gravy and chorizo slices) and the Brussels Sprouts which were roasted nicely and had a light, tasty, crispiness which resulted from opening up while cooking.
Cocktails we had that are noteworthy - the Bee's Knees which was a nice contrast between lemon, honey, and gin and the Manhattan!
Chef came out and asked what we were in the mood for, and then brought out the most amazing healthy meal. We loved it!
We were there on a quiet Monday evening. We had their lamb specialty, scallops, monkfish, mussels and burata salad. Every dish was excellent. Dessert was to die for. We will return.
My birthday dinner here was great! Just my date and I. Waiter was friendly and funny, food was fantastic. 110% chance I’ll be back.
And great service
The food was soooo good that we insisted on meeting the exec chef! Music was great! Drinks were delicious.
I can’t wait to go back!
food was average .
thai rice was undercooked . They took it of the final bill
Small portions but good
Great flavors and service. Food was excellent.
He had an awesome dining experience. Our server was outstanding, friendly and made us feel great, wanting to come back, which we did a week later. The food is superb
Wonderful for girls night out after shopping and movie....and especially if you are staying at the hotel
Ambiance and overall physical aspect is a one star
To think that it's at hotel Valencia , expected more chic environment
We felt we were in a fast food restaurant
In and out had better decorations!
The table, chairs set up was awful!
Price of the food was not cheap so expectation for a more upscale aesthetics is not unreasonable
We ordered 4 dishes. Of the 4 dishes, two were good and two were not. The Thai fried rice was way too salty and the lobster enchiladas was under cooked and we had to send it back to reheat. The sea bass was excellent and the lamb was good too. The restaurant was quiet so was good for talking. Our waitress was friendly. Over all experience was ok. Not sure if it was worth the money though.
