Their espresso machine wasn't working then they didn't have the pork belly I wanted. But no drama it is still one of my favorite spots. The server was ok just seemed like they were a bit overwhelmed had to ask 4 times for my Bloody Mary.
We ate there last Saturday night with another couple. We ordered a bunch of plates but they forgot 3 of them and by the time the waiter came around we were "over it".
Love this place. It has a tapas menu and a regular menu. The corn on the cob is to die for.
While the food has always been well prepared and loaded with charcoal grilled flavor,the service still leaves much to be desired, even after 2+ years in business. I get the feeling that the restaurant is not run well, maybe a lack of management and training. A fire has "closed" the dining room, what little there was, so only patio dining. Fortunately heaters work well enough to be comfortable through a meal but 40 to 50 degree temps are cold to us Floridians. Cocktails are inventive but skimpy. Menu standouts abound though. Whole grilled yellowtail snapper delish, no accompanied sides, for $30. Small plates better with yummy grilled eggplant w/miso, grilled whole fresh artichoke, shrimp and calamari dish and pricey fresh and grilled oysters. Curiously six oysters @2.50 apiece for the grilled but half dozen raw is $21. inexplicably .
Right on Las Olas with outdoor tables. It has an upscale Key West feel with a great tapas type menus. Try the corn.
When we arrived, they told us that they didn't have a reservation in our name. I showed them my email from Opentable, but they mumbled something about their systems being down, and not being able to notify Opentable because it was New Years Eve. We didn't get a table, and had to instead sit at a high-top. Food and service were otherwise good, but unremarkable
The food and atmosphere were great. Service was good, could have been better. They were busy, but they didn't looked short staffed. The rain was an issue that day however. Beautiful restaurant overall, and the mimosas were endless.
Food and drinks were superb. Given that I had a reservation, I would've hoped for better seating than an "afterthought" table on the edge of the property and wedged between dog owners.
Aside from that, noms central and the best Bloody Mary I've ever drank.
Amazing food! Everything is prepared to perfection. Great outdoor seating area. Perfect for a large group or for a date.
