Fun at My Blue Cat

Really a cool place. It looks small from the outside but there is a nice patio that was heated from the cold the day we went. Sangria is excellent. We ordered the roasted garlic and bacon, fried avocado, the corn dog shrimp, gold rush potatoes tapas. I loved the fried avocado. My hub... read more

The band at the restaurant was so enjoyable and put a smile on everyone's face. The food was so fantastic. My husband and I were very impressed with this place.

Dined there last night! It is adorable inside and out! Very friendly service, was seated by heater at first which was uncomfortably hot, asked to move, and they were very accommodating! Waitress was so friendly and helpful and food was delicious! Will definitely come back!

This is a Spanish food restraint. We found the food good and quite different. The sangria was great. The only real drawback is the place has all the atmosphere of your grandmother's kitchen.

Chick-fil-A founder Truett Cathy lived by a simple philosophy: "the handshake of the host affects the taste of the roast." Enter Dave. A cheerful laid-back server who carried himself like the owner and watched out for us like a Jewish mother. Happy hour. Dave made sure our orders were submitted before the deadline. Drinks, tapas, entrees, and dessert were delicious,... More

They have a big diverse menu. Normally scares me away but we ordered a wide variety of items and they were all well executed. Service was "just right". Would love to have a place like this in my home town!

This restaurant was highly recommended by our hotel, but I think they need to get out more. The menu was all over the place and the food was not good.

The prickly pear margaritas and the sangria were really good. The fresh lime margarita was the best. Had several tapas. The fried avocado, Santa Fe shrimp and the pecan and goat cheese were stand outs.

From the outside El Gato ... seems architecturally out of place next to the somewhat imposing structure next to it. Upon reflection, I now consider that part of its charm. Inside it is busy and crowded/cozy (pick your adjective). El Gato was brought to our attention by a friend, and we were "pulled in" by the availability of tapas. We... More
