Not filling, but very fun. – Very trendy yet cozy vibe in this Studio City bar/lounge. Eclectic menu offers some great dishes. The cold salmon tapas is a favorite. If you're not too concerned about how much you are spending, this is an excellent place to have some drinks and try out some great tapas. I wouldn't recommend this as a place to have dinner or try to get full. Definitely recommend it for after-dinner drinks and snacks.
great tapas, great wine, great service. WINx3 – i've been going here since i moved to the neighborhood from chicago. the staff are wonderful! they know my drink, they shake it right and i usually order a glass of wine which they offer a nice variety, spanish and california varietals dominate my tastes here!
as for food...order the mini kobe sliders which aren't on the menu...delish! you can get a dish from $5-$25 which allows for flexibility, portion and cost wise.
and the chocolate crepes or volcano cake are MY WEAKNESS...i often have sushi then stop over for desert and wine.
A hidden gem! Great food, service and atmosphere. We sat for several hours more than we had anticipated enjoying the evening.
WORST MANAGER EVER – I absolutely love this place but refuse to return due to the unprofessional manager. I never take the time to write reviews on restaurants but after my experience with this person felt it was important to inform consumers and address his behavior. I was there with coworkers last wed night and when the check arrived we placed 2 credit cards down to split the bill. The very DUMB waitress only charged my card. After informing her of this she stated no problem she would VOID the original charge and then split the cost. Well the next day I saw that I was charged TWICE, Once for the entire Bill and then again for the splitting of the bill. I left several messages with no response and then when I finally got a hold of the manager he was extremely defensive, pretty much told me that it was not their mistake and that I would need to check with my bank, and what did I expect him to do. When I stated what do you mean what do I expect you to do you are the manager of that incompetent employer he stated I could show up to his restaurant with my lawyer or whomever and I ended up hanging up on him because he was being so inconsiderate. Any place that treats their customers in that manner does not deserve to be dined at with all the amazing places to eat in LA. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME AT THIS PLACE, go to Firefly instead right down the street!
Hyped up – I went here with a friend at around 6pm on a Friday and I think we arrived at the same time as all the employees. The place was dead! We left at around 8pm and only a handful people were there. The food was overpriced for the extra tiny tapas portions we received. The wine was good (but you really can't mess that up). The bartender was a little snobby and not friendly, but helpful with picking a wine. No music and lacked the tapas ambiance that I like. I'd go again for the wine, but not for food.
Great Bar! Forget the Tapas! – Great New York vibe in a quaint underground-like setting. The bar is quite phenomenal and great for lounging on the romantic couches spread around the fireplace. Glass of wine..$11. Waitress...priceless. This bar space will impress even the most cynical of sceptics!
Food...very plain and non-eventful! Patatas my *ss! It's nothing but overweight french fries dipped in melted cheese! McD can put their fries to shame!
...oh, and by the way, we ordered soup that was never served but included in our bill. The waiter later apologized blaming the error on a computer problem.
Funny composition of dining experience...a fabulous bar leading to a Spanish Tapas Bar connected by a door to an Italian restaurant (La Loggia's). Though the stylish bar and ambiance rule, the food is very forgettable!!!
Tapas & Ambiance Reasonably Priced – The tapas plates make you think you're in Andalucia sipping Madera Port and enjoying a light plate of warmed to perfection Manchego cheese and Serrano Ham. Walk into the swanky but comfortable lounge to enjoy a slice of New York in LA (via Spain). With a chill early evening to late night scene Next Door Tapas will impress the most cynical of sceptics. Order a phenomenal wine at the bar, lounge on the romantic couches by the fireplace or grab a seat on La Loggia's patio..... you may even catch a glimpse of some A-listers. Dress up, dress down....the attentive service, ambiance and delights of Next Door Tapas leaves little to be desired. Don't let the valley aspect deter you.
Great tapas and wine – This is an excellent place for an early bite and a glass of wine or a late night snack and nightcap. Warm, comfy setting, an extensive, reasonably priced wine-by-the-glass list and an extensive tapas menu. Try the sliders infused with foie gras. And the bartenders could not be friendlier actually telling the truth about which items are good and which they don't prefer on the menu. A real treat!
Inviting tapas lounge envelops locals with gourmet offerings and warm ambience. – The Scene
Located off the serene patio of Studio City's La Loggia restaurant, this lounge has a look and feel completely separate from its sister Italian bistro. Black and blood-red mid-century-style leather couches, a two-sided fireplace and mod lighting--two magical chandelier bursts of wire and lights dominate--create a hint of retro appeal without overstating it. An intimate upstairs loft allows patrons to survey the action from above. Thirty-something locals and studio types linger over wine and masterful small plates.
Owner Frank Leon brought Malaga-born chef Ruben de la Mata to California to create a unique, ever-evolving and authentic Spanish tapas menu to enhance the lounge experience. Pitch perfect cheese and charcuterie plates complement the wine list. Single-serving salads, like mixed greens accented with goat cheese and pistachio encased grapes, are served in double-old-fashioned glasses. A Spanish version of canoli is the don't-miss dessert, especially when enjoyed with a sip of rich, smooth 1971 Pedro Ximenez sherry.
Lovely lounge – This is the perfect spot for a romantic drink, or a light bite to eat. It has a classy atmosphere, but a homey feel. The small plates are so good--we loved the spicy potatoes. This is a fabulous new addition to Studio City.
