Out of our top 3 choices for tapas. Chicken entree very dry, but bacon wrapped shrimp good.

Our party of eleven was told after ordering that we could not have any of the salads we ordered due to a "lettuce shortage". A few minutes later we were told that they were out of brisket and that we had received the last ricotta and the last steak in the kitchen. When we asked what they had they said drinks and dessert. Soon after, they started bringing us drinks we didn't order and plates of cheese which we thought was a kind gesture considering they couldn't offer us most of what we ordered. Unfortunately when the bill came we were charged for some drinks that we had been told would be comped as well as some of the food. We negotiated the bill down which frankly we should never have had to do. Our group had a great laugh about the ridiculousness of the situation. We certainly felt bad for the servers as well as the owner but I don't think any of us will be dining there again.

The food was good and the $2 mimosas aren’t anything to complain about. Our server, however, seemed that any question regarding “can I get a side of bacon” or simply our presence were an inconvenience.

Service was SLOW, which might be acceptable on a Friday or Saturday night, but a 6:30 Sunday seating with four people should NOT take three hours! And the place was not crowded. Waiter kept forgetting to bring whatever we had asked for - the drink menu, a second glass of wine. Meals did not come out at the same time. And then the waiter 'forgot' to discount our wines, but luckily I checked the receipt before he picked it up, so he had to re-ring both checks for our table. Why offer half price wines by the glass on Sundays if you're going to charge full price?

Despite one person in my party being.... difficult, we had a lovely time. The food was good and the ambiance was pleasant. My only critique would be that the servers shouldn't hover around the host stand talking. We were sitting right by it and it got a little noisy and it was annoying when I needed a refill but my server was chatting. But, again, that was a minor thing that only happened the one time. Everything else was great!

They have somewhat redeemed themselves from the first time we went. This time we stayed inside instead of going to the roof. Much nicer and quieter inside. Food was better but I just have a hard time with the cost of tapas. Decent wine offerings. Good bourbon options.

Both fish dishes we had were dry and in comparing this with other tapas restaurants in Atlanta, the portions were tiny for the price (again, I know it's tapas!). Salad was good and everyone there was friendly and helpful.

Very nice establishment, great spot for drinks or a light meal. I wasn't a fan of the entertainment as it was very loud and we couldn't really have good conversation with each other without yelling or repeating ourselves. We were not right next to the musicians, so I can only imagine how loud it was for those guests. The service was good, but it felt like they were rushing through the menu explanations and our questions concerning the menu. We will definitely give this spot another chance as it has great potential.

Hi Jason, Thanks for sharing your experience with us on Open Table. We appreciate your feedback and will use your feedback as a training opportunity for our team. Our apologies if you felt the menu description was rushed. We certainly do not want your experience to feel that way. I agree, our rooftop music can be energetic, Friday and Saturday evening, we have a musician and or band from 8-11pm. We are pleased you will come back and try us out again!

Nice place to enjoy a date with your sweetie. However the food quality left a lot to be desired. The dishes are small and the price is high for what you get and the food was so so. We ordered three of the hot tapas dishes to share and they were ok but kind of cold and not very tasty. For dessert we ordered the velvet cheesecake and it was very dry and it seemed like the crust was burnt. The ambiance of the rooftop was what was nice about the place but if your looking for good food, this is not the place. At least it wasn’t for our experience.

Other than the waitress, Abbey, awful. Luckily the place was deserted so the table a top each other was not a problem. Our waitress was an absolute delight. Yes, that was the highlight of the night. We each had wine, cocktail and a mimosa which were fine except for the short pours. No complaint, that happens. The deviled eggs were edible but from micro chickens, the lobster roll was the size of a small candy bar, the shrimp and grits were barely edible, the brisket was a luke warm 1.5" x 1.5" brick blob of overcooked something(not sure it was brisket) and the snapper was fun size at best and totally overcooked. We are not big eaters and enjoy Tapas regularly but this was less than Tapas. Do not waste your money here. The entire downtown Woodstock area was packed except this place and I now understand why. Sorry!!

Hi Michael, Thanks so much for great review, great to hear you enjoyed!!

Unfortunately, we were disappointed. Service was slow. The food wasn't impressive, the coconut rice lacked flavor and looked old, this fish was good although very small portion for $15 and a long wait for it. The little pieces of bread took forever to arrive and was only given after asking for it twice. Even the waiter seemed embarrassed by how much they sucked. The best they have is the building itself and the performances, but that's about it.

Took 45 minutes to get our appetizer. I was the only one that thought it was even eatable. My wife ordered another plate that came out about 20 minutes later and couldn't eat it either, because it was way undercooked. We were one of only 2 tables in the restaurant at 5:30pm, so it wasn't like the kitchen was too busy to keep up. An hour and a half and $85 later we went home and ordered pizza.
