Good Tapas

This was a good place for tapas, and it's a place you can enjoy with a family, a group, or even on a date with your significant other. I really enjoyed the goat cheese, but the other tapas (the stuffed mushrooms and the scallops) were not too appealing. The white sangria, which my girlfriend had... read more

This is a great Tapas restaurant. I have been to many Tapas restaurants in the Chicago area and this place is one of the best in my opinion. i feel they have a very very good menu selection. They have a very nice wine selection. I can't comment on their sangria because I don't drink sangria. Their paella it is... More

My wife and I stopped by for dinner at about 7 and were seated promptly. The restaurant serves pricy small plates in a nice atmosphere. We ordered a variety of menu items and a few drinks. My wife enjoyed her sangria. I ordered a Spanish beer which tasted very stale...the bottle had a freshness date from the fall of 2014.... More

Little plates big $. It smells strange in there too. Nice atmosphere but not for us. It seems weird that the curtains shield the view from the outside even though the business in on a busy corner. Hiding something?

We've eaten her twice. The first time we were with another couple and shared tapas. Tonight we were in I town for theater and just ordered entrees. Ew had salmon and beef tenderloin. Both dishes were well prepared and tasty. I was a bit disappointed that our meals came to us separately. Also the mixed drink was not especially good.... More

If you have a party of 2, go between 6:30 and 7 and you will be seated immediately. Atmosphere is great for Saturday evening casual dining. The tapas were outstanding with pork, squid, stuffed mushrooms taking center stage. The grilled calimari was also so tasty and tender only a fork was necessary. The pork tapas were so flavorful that hubby... More

This place has always been very busy. We frequently dined at a favorite Mexican restaurant in the same area and walked by this place and it looked interesting so we finally got around to trying it. Make no mistake: this is much more Spanish style food and not so much Latin or Mexican. The tuna pasta was pretty good, the... More

Great restaurant for some Spanish tapas. Loved the papas bravas, dates, and goat cheese dip. The seafood was just ok and a little fishy. We enjoyed the sangria, atmosphere, and proximity to many other bars and restaurants. If you like tapas, definitely worth a visit.

I was happy to sit at the bar here and socialize with the bartender. I'm sure I would go back again as it was a great atmosphere, but I feel it could've been a bit better with lower prices. It's definitely a place to check out, but it wouldn't be a regular on my list. That being said, the thought... More

I ate here last night with my partner and our expectations were too high. We were hoping for some authentic tasting Spanish Tapas but the food was bland and disappointing. We ordered Patas Alioli - this wasn't like the traditional dish we have enjoyed in Spain, it was more like a potato salad; Spanish Omlette - the potato to egg... More
