Great tapas and friendly low key

We like this place. Very interesting dishes. sushi is excellent and try the pork tacos. But most hottest places it's a little expensive. Did not try the bar but very interesting. The waitstaff was welcoming to her family and we were at least 30 years older than the next oldest person. Really... read more

I have to say, this restaurant was my favorite one until today. So disappointed right now. I don't usually write reviews but I really need to do it. Just got off from work, walked a few blocks to get there, patio totally empty and they refused to serve a table for me because my 23 pound dog. Two weeks ago... More

You are correct in calling this a management inconsistency that we have since corrected with our staff. Please accept our most sincere apology and invitation to make this right.

It was great fun tasting all the wonderful food - everything was delicious and beautifully presented. I would have given 5 stars if the price were reasonable. It was a fun one-time visit, but won't be back because the prices are outrageous and paying the bill was no fun at all.

I absolutely loved everything we ordered. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave great recommendations. All the plates are very well presented and taste incredible. The ambiance was very good as well in a nice hipstery neighborhood. Try the Shells and Cheese, Pan con tomate, Titos Cucumber Mule. I wanna go back to this place just to... More

We tried the Tuna Tacos, the Pork Belly Tacos, and a Napolean Roll and they were all amazing. We did order something with red peppers, cream cheese/bruschetta that was too heavy for us. Tuna tacos came in a small fried wonton shell that was delicious. The pork belly was probably fried since it was crispy. Also some unique desserts on... More

My go to spot. Food is good and diverse. Atmosphere is the best. Great service. Make sure your whole party is there or else you have to wait. Opens at 5pm and fills pretty fast.

Heard nothing but great things about this place, so i decided to brave the 45min wait. I wish i would have passed. I ordered 4 things off of the menu based on the servers recommendations; the Pork Belly Tacos, the Brussel Sprouts, the Garlic Fires and one of their signature sushi rolls (forget which one). The Fries stole the show,... More

If you want Tapas in Charlotte, plus sushi, this is the place to come. Parking can be a challenge, but go to the big lot behind CVS. Expensive but delightful. Great cocktails.

Definitely one of the best places I have dined in. It is located in a hip location and there is a waiting list but we called in advance and had the luck to be sited the moment we had arrived (you can’t really reserve a place, but if you call they will add you to a ‘waiting’ list and will... More
