not worth it even it were free – We had Easter brunch here and the service was slow and non-responsive. They charged me triple the price for the "entertainment" which wasn't worth the real charge of $10.00 per person and it took them three times to get the bill right. Add to that the fact that the food was no better than average diner fare and you have a truly bad dining experience. I wouldn't waste my money or time on this place.

Crooners, cocktails and small plates of comfort food are key elements at this friendly cabaret club. – In Short
Unlike the formal ambience of many supper clubs, this neighborhood lounge is casual and easygoing. Performers range from a jazz trio or a chanteuse to a comedian or a drag queen. Cover varies from free to $20. For those who crave some eats with their Etta James cocktail, Asian-influenced, appetizer-sized dishes include hoisin-glazed ribs and Pacific Island croquettes. For those with a bigger appetite, there's also a burger, steak or rotating special.

Do not waste your money or time – One of the worst dining experiences in the city. The music was good but not the food. Most of us at the table got our 1st courses with our entrees; the food reminded me of airplane food; I asked for a certain vodka, the waiter said they had it but then brought me something else (at least he confessed when I confronted him). The desserts were horrible. The vanilla ice cream tasted cheap like it was from a box. My spoon handle was greasy. I could go on but you get the idea.

Plot Twist – Although the food was superb and the atmosphere pleasantly dark and mysterious, the service was terrible. It took half an hour after we ordered for anyone to bring us any bread, and even then it was the bus boy who noticed and brought it to us. We were forced to go to the bar to get drinks because our waiter was more concerned with hugging friends of his than he was with doing his job. THe other waiter in the place was very fast and professional, and the busboy was very attentive. However the waiter was simply not concerned with us. At the end of the night, we asked the staff and discovered that the arragont waiter was in fact the OWNER!!!

Man about town – This eating place had one of its bad days, today,

May 4th. A group of us had reserved space there only to experience slow, impossible service, and a great deal of noise/hullabaloo that one would normally associate with a nightclub or such. Worst of all, two of our group got no food at all. There were perhaps 12-18 others in this large restaurant and our group had difficulty understanding how the wait staff could be so inept.

Just a bit off – This place wasn't *bad*, but, unlike some of the other tapas places in town, didn't leave me anxiously awaiting my next visit.

Great selection of food but something was lost in the kitchen. The serrano ham was overpowered by the baked bread and insane amounts of oil -- thus taking away the flavor. Most of the foods were lacking sauce, lacking flavor, or were a gumbo-style mess.

I'd probably go back there if I were in a tapas mood and were out partying in the area -- it is open late (2am!) on weekends. But then again, the same would be true for almost any place open late when you're hungry.

Would still need to check out the music and dancing on Friday/Saturyda nights. The place looks fairly nice inside so it might be interesting coming here for some occassion with a larger group.
