It seems like ON is still reseting following the COVID lockdown. The seating was very odd with only two 2 person tables along the window close to the kitchen so it was quite noisy. Food was still pretty good and the service did the best it could although it seemed a bit in disarray. A way to go to getting back to the great experience I had there in the past.

Please don’t look at the menu online. It is nothing what you see on the menu at the restaurant. This suppose to have Tapas as it claims online, but not a single dish on the menu that has Tapas. Very disappointed since we drove 1 1/2 to eat dinner and no Tapas.

An absolute disaster.
Service was horrible, food was not good at all. The menu that’s online is not the real one.
Expensive, not worthy

Good place for a date night. The signature dish (braised beef cheeks ) was delicious. The salad offering and charcuterie are must have for starters. The cocktail we liked the best was the Blanca Sangria. The churro for dessert was a delight. The service was a bit strained ( I think they were a bit understaffed) but still friendly and attentive.

I enjoyed the place, and environment. Service was good, and we were happy about that. However I think there was not much variety of food in the menu, and everything was expensive on menus, also when I got my food it was super cold. However my friends and I enjoyed the place.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
