This place has an incredibly welcoming and enthusiastic staff, a great, casual environment, and a versatile menu with so many options. I have never been disappointed and always feel welcome and appreciated when I get dinner there. It's especially convenient if you are headed to one of the theaters around their location.

Incredible experience all around! The food is absolutely phenomenal & very reasonably priced for the quality (think high-end French meets brewery vibe). Owner was great & took the time to personally visit our table. We couldn’t have been more pleased & we will definitely be back next time we’re in SD!

The food cooked to perfection! Loved every minute of our dining experience. It did take awhile to get our check but they were busy. The staff was definitely hustling through. 100% recommend!

The portions are not quite tapas size as you'd expect if you have been to Barcelona. Also the flavors are confusing as they have ribs to asian influences calamari.. This place with just okay.

Big conference at the San Diego conference center and most places were booked solid. I searched Open Table and found this gem. It was pretty much the real last interesting restaurant within walking distance and I am very happy to pick this place. My colleagues and client guests were extremely happy with the service and food. The 'tapas' portions were mid to large in size and absolutely delicious.
Will recommend this place to anyone for fusion Spanish/French/American influenced tapas.
We were so happy we left a big tip!

They really need to hire more help. And they need to upgrade the bathroom.

Such a great little restaurant with HUGE charm. The menu is extensive but not overwhelming. The service was amazing and felt like a friend was serving you. We went before we saw a show at San Diego Civic Theatre and it just made the night perfect. I would highly recommend.

We were going to a show at the Civic Theater and picked Tapas and Beer because it was close. The service was great, the ambiance was fine, the drink list was decent, but the food was very average. As a group of three, we tried 3 small plates, a variety of crostini’s, and 2 of the flatbreads. Nothing stood out as particularly delicious and it was pretty overpriced for the quality and quantity.

I went there to have our holiday party. recommended by a friend. I was not disappointed! I had a good time, there was so much good food to choose from and great beer. The service was wonderful and very personalized. I felt like our group was the only one there, yet the place was full!. I will definitely be returning when i am able to stay longer and make an evening of it.
Great Job Guys!

Food wasn’t great. Ribs had too much sauce that tasted more like ketchup than bbq. The tuna candies were so hard so eat as the rice was so hard. The Brussels sprouts were good but covered in oil and some sweetener. The charcuterie platter was disappointing in terms of variety. The California flatbread was just ok. The beer selection was also disappointing in terms of variety.
