Good food, inattentive service, arrogant ownership – This tapas restaurant has good food, judging by the two times I have dined there. However, they have similar service issues as I've pointed out in my review here of the next-door "La Strada"
(see). In particular, they seem to have an inconsistent policy concerning dinner hours. And besides that, once I sat outside (sidewalk seating) for over 25 minutes, without anyone approaching me! Also, I understand the ownership is the same as that of "La Strada", and I have told of the latter's rude and arrogant attitudes in my review of that establishment.
Tasty – Good tapas -- love the Kobe mini burgers and the sangria. The decor is beautiful and the service is consistent.
Editorial Review – Swanky Spanish lounge on bustling University Avenue specializes in traditional tapas items--mussels, stuffed peppers, ceviche and the like.
