    Nice little spot for a bite before theater. The ambience would be better if they'd turn down the bright lights. Salad was good. Truffle fries were good. Flatbread was not good. Service was great!

    Our first time visiting, and we will DEFINITELY be back!! We were looking for a place to have dinner before a show at the Civic and saw other diners had raved about Tapas and Beer, so decided to try it out. The restaurant is small enough to be intimate, and the noise level was low, so we were able to have normal conversations across the table without yelling or texting :) The husband and wife team who run the restaurant are ALSO your servers--they work and hustle and still manage to stop and have sweet conversations with all their guests. And the food.....oh wow......I am dreaming of the sausages and fresh bread and tomatoes and cheese and...and....and....trust me, just go! (But make reservations first!)

    We had a party of seven, and while I did have a reservation, we showed up at different times and Juli still sat us immediately. The engagement was perfect. Cordial, professional, authentic and as the evening progressed it became a world class time for all of us. Food was superb! Service was spectacular and it made for a very memorable experience.

    A group of four friends went out for dinner before seeing Hamilton! I had looked up top happy hours in San Diego and this was recommended! It did not disappoint! Julie took excellent care of us! Two of us had the amazing burger and truffle fries, another had the quinoa salad and the fourth had the seafood pasta! Everything came out fresh, hot and cooked by our specifications! I will be bringing my husband back from the long trek from Fallbrook! Do not miss this place! We got there at 4:30 and by 5:30, it was a full house!

    Amazing find. In town for the evening and found a place close to event. Couldn’t go wrong with the name “tapas and beer”. What we didn’t realize was that everything was homemade, fresh, delicious and had a comfortable and fun vibe. A gem found in walking distance from Courtyard Marriott and Balboa Theater. Ate a couple of tapas and a meal. The baked Brie and salmon are a must have on your visit. The owners were nice and attentive. Tons of beers on tap and great wine. Not pricy for tons of food. A GEM!

    The service is second to none. Julie was bright, engaging, and offered up some incredible recommendations. It was great to see a family owned restaurant like this offering such good food and service. Of the five tapas items we tried on the menu, the mushroom and Brie was as by far our favorite.

    Really great experience from start to finish. Went for an early dinner before a 7:00 show. Our table was ready for us as soon as we walked in and the beautiful owner was ready to talk to us about the menu available for my vegan sister. All the french/spanish dishes were very good. We shared the pan con tomate, toulouse and chorizo de Bilbao, quinoa salad, flat bread with prosciutto, and truffle fries. Most of us typically drink wine but because of the warm weather, we all selected something from the extensive beer list. We left feeling satisfied. We will definitely return.

    Our party of four, which included an 8-year old, sat outside and had a delightful dinner. The server was very friendly and patient and guided us to a wonderful set of tapas. The outdoor tables are close to the street but it is not a through street so there is virtually no traffic. All in all, it was a most enjoyable evening.

    We didn’t end up staying for reservation. It was extremely understaffed, multiple tables were not cleaned off from previous guests. Table next to us was sitting there for 20+ minutes without getting a drink order. You could tell it was going to be a long wait for drinks, food, etc. The outside patio is so so, not really any ambiance or views, and inside was more or less a gastropub. Bummed we couldn’t try the food, after reading so many good reviews that’s why we came here. Maybe it was an off night, but they really need to hire more people.
