small menu, food ok not great
was disappointed though our waiter was super nice
great food and really nice outdoor seating. Quite secluded so not lots of people
Great food, great atmosphere, service is slow and not much involvement, but they gave us free dessert without us asking for it! We had 6 people dinner. It was a great value for the money and very good experience overall.
Excellent portion sizes. Food came out quickly. Food was tasty. Good selection.
I had dinner with my father and he was very impressed with the courtyard, food, and service. It is a beautiful open space that had tables spaced out far from each other. The menu is small, but complex in the options they offer. The items were priced well and not too overly expensive. Service was attentive to make sure we experienced a wonderful dinner.
Food was good. Service was slow. I don't know if they were understaff. The servers were friendly though.
The staff are knowledgeable of the menu and helpful. The prices are decent for an upscale tapas restaurant, and the portions are large enough to share with others. The food is well worth the cost, particularly the shrimp.
Always enjoyed spending time with family & friends. Just a little disappointed due to pandemic.
Ofcourse, we’ll come back again.
Was pretty smooth. Restaurant was friendly
My date and I had an amazing dinner and the quiet setting allowed for some great conversation and comfort.
The food was absolutely delicious and we really enjoyed ourselves!!
Great food! Friendly service!
Poor quality of wagyu Wagyu and the taste is not what you expected
Everyone on staff moves super slow. It took over 15 minutes for them to ask for our drink order. It wasn't just our waiter; I saw the entire wait staff trudging about.
A must place to have an incredible meal with many guests or just a wonderful couples date :)
Such a lovely place, I definitely recommend this restaurant.
The food at this restaurant is overpriced and is far from being considered Spanish. The beef cheeks were overcooked and you got the feeling as if they had been microwaved. The patatas were more like a side dish that you get for breakfast. The chicken had no taste. The bone marrow was cold and the padrón peppers needed to be cooked a bit longer... not one dish was good.
The hostess was the server and he spilled the wine twice.
The ambiance was nothing more than a few tables in a courtyard. No table clothes, nor any sort of table decor to make it feel quaint.
A total disappointment.
Wasn’t what we expected. Poor customer service and waiter was rude like if he was in a hurry not patience. Food had no taste
Absolutely loved the ambiance! Food was great and drinks were delicious.
Food was delicious. Service was excellent. Management was thoughtful and considerate.
Everything was great. But 4 pieces of shrimp $18 isn't reasonable. More expressive than oysters.
The only complaint is that the guy downstairs instead of taking care of us he kept talking to other people passing by. The food was good but far from being spanish
Great food but slow service
Food wasn't as good as the pics make
It look. But service and ambiance was great! Good spot for just cocktails and ambiance but not really If your hungry.
This restaurant seems to position itself as a fancy one. The court area with the fountain and the lights is very nice, people are dressed up, menu is short and rather pricey. However I did not get a feeling of a fancy place. Bare tables, no cloth, no placemats, give me a weird feeling - where am I supposed to rest my cutlery.. on a bare surface? On the edges of a plate seems like the only option, only that the tables are so small - 3 of us we were seated at the tiny table although I have ordered in advance, there was no space for all the dishes, it was all so crammed. It’s also very chilly in the evening, no heaters. Overall I had a feeling it’s a pretentious and overpriced place, not really comfortable or relaxing.
It was okay, maybe our expectation was over the top.
Great food, nice ambiance. Host was very accommodating to seating us in a nice location despite being about 15mins late.
Food was very average as the sauces used was too salty and lacked the Spanish authenticity!
The food was exceptional. I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a fine establishment in Santana Row.
Overall the food was OK - service was slow and unmemorable even though there were only two other tables dining. It's unfortunate that many hotels (including this one) don't get it when it comes to food and beverage experiences. No ambiance other than the building. Empty, cold metal tables with no cushions, nothing set on the tables, poor background music, zero follow up from any staff.
Sad to see that management isn't paying attention, especially since the hotel and the dining area have tremendous potential. When your restaurant is empty, and you can't get a seat on Santana Row as it is booming, that should tell you something.
We always have a good time here, the ambiance is everything!
Best night out in a long time! We ordered the mussels which were my favorite, bone marrow, sea bass which was so buttery and the olives which all paired excellent with a glass of White wine. I can’t wait to visit again!
Once seated it took a good 5 minutes before a server (or anyone) came around only to say they would be right with us. Meanwhile the party of 2 seated after us had their drinks by the time our server got back to us. At this point we had time to decide on everything we wanted to order. Which originally included $100 steak, but because they took so long we opted for the $32 seabass. The first dish came out very quickly. The others lingered a bit. Over all the food was good. The service was so so.
I made reservations for dinner and when we got there they gave us an outside table that had chairs that were hard metal and that clearly would normally have cushions on them. We asked for a table inside and they moved us to a side area that had no ambiance whatsoever. We decided to just have a drink and my Manhattan was watery and had .... a Red Dye Maraschino Cherry.. Pretty bad.. I went up to the service bar to pay my bill and it was dirty and had stuff all over the bar surface. All told I was really surprised at how bad the overall experience was: given that this is in the Valencia hotel in Santana Row.
The food was not as expected the wagyu filet was ok not impressed the halibut was amazing but the over all experience fell short. Our meals came out separately from each other one of the guest had to have the food boxed because we were all done eating and my side dishes came way after I was done with the main course. For the cost I expected better service it was a special occasion and I planned the dinner and was disappointed that this is what happened I was quite embarrassed.
Had a great time, Food n the ambience was fantastic!
Fantastic food, fast service, friendly staff, will go back again soon.
Awesome! Will definitely be back!
