After many months of trying to get a table, I was understandably anxious to finally try Tickets to see if it lives up to the hype. And it does! As it was the first visit for me and my friends we let the very capable staff choose the dishes for us. After asking us a few questions about what we... More

While it is always reserved-you can go and get a ticket for a day and time-because many people cancel! We did just that and got lunch for the next day! The theme is cute-all about old film-with the uniforms like ushers and movie memorabilia-but what is great is the detail to your tapas and the attention the servers give you!... More

We ordered 13 dishes, and not a single one had the "wow" factor you would expect for the prices or the association with the "Adria" name. We sat at the counter and were surprised to see the chefs pulling pre-made dishes out of the refrigerators and simply garnishing them. This would have been fine except for the cold, unfresh taste...

A tourist trap. Overpriced with little servings. Yes, tapas are supposed to be small but not at that price, imo considering the size and taste. Don't order the one with King Oyster Mushroom. Taste is good but serving is super tiny. Like a soup. Also the pistachios. Do order the cured cow though, it's really good. They also have a... More

We had a wonderful experience at Tickets; the food was great and the employees were wonderful. Our server, Luigi took excellent care of us. We did the tasting menu, and it really blew us away. This was my first real brush with the Molecular Gastronomy movement, and I loved it. It's difficult to describe the dishes, but they're masterfully presented... More

The surprise menu never disappoint! Overall experience was good and enjoyable but shouldn't be compared to El Bulli, as the dinning style is quite different, it is less spectacular but still holds a high standard. If you don't want to be surrounded by tourist, well if you want to be surrounded by less tourist, try weekend lunch, there was a... More

The suprise tasting menu was a lot of fun and definitely resulted in us trying things we enjoyed and wouldn't have ordered otherwise. We were asked about taste preferences and allergies. Out of all the courses, we didn't like 1, and that's because we didn't know that we didn't like sea urchin. Subsequent plates were sea urchin free! Most attentive... More

Tickets did not disappoint. Of course, the prices aren't what you'd pay every day, but the quality of the food deserves very high praise. We told the waitress the types of food we liked in general and the chef decided what dishes to prepare for us. Everything we had was cooked to perfection and presented beautifully, with many different and... More

Overall, our experience was good but not as spectacular as expected. For me, Pakta is a much better experience, food and service wise. The servers' English was not as fluent as Pakta's and not as attentive too. I can't help but compare these 2 because they are from the same group. Also, I noticed that Albert Adria serves the 'other'... More

So we just ate here twice. Once was in the evening, then yesterday for lunch. Sadly, the experience wasn't as good at lunch as the female server who worked behind the white seated counter was abrupt and somewhat rude. Even the guests sitting next to us commented that you do not expect plates to be dropped down in front of... More
