We have been there for late afternoon lunch and food was great. We have also had many fun times later in the evening visiting with friends and enjoying dessert. Great place. Virginia & Laurin

We stumbled upon this place last Saturday afternoon. A fantastic 3 piece jazz band was playing in the bar (no cover). We had a great time and met some very nice people. We will return for the music and will try the individual pizzas, which looked yummy!!

This place was right across from our hotel so one late night we decided to walk over and give it a shot, the food was great and a wonderful atmosphere. We split a variety of things and they were all tasty and flavorful. The papas bravas were great, I have had them at many places and these were some of... More

Excellent tapas, good service and decent prices, what more do you want? Ate here twice on a recent trip to New York and absolutely enjoyed it more than the trendy places in SoHo and the Village. It is laid back and very casual but worth the trip. Try the tuna tartar.

While on holidays in NYC we meet a friend here we shared some tapas and had some drinks. The food, drinks and service here were great. It can be very noisy, if you are trying to have a conversation. But the place has a great vibe and very cool atmosphere. There was one stinky cheese that three big cheese lovers... More

Just stopped her for a quick drink before I headed out of town. I wish I had gone earlier in my visit to NYC! Very cute - brunch looked awesome. And the James Hotel staff recommended it. I'd definitely go back. Great vibe and cool tunes. Love they have an open air long table to have your drink and people... More

As with most restaurants/bars in Grand Street this had a trendy bohemian feel to it. Service was good, beers were cold, tapas food was good. Overall a lovely place to idol away a few hours in

DJ spinning tunes in the corner, great cocktails and service. Dark and intimate. Good for couples. Relaxing. Only downside, sharing toilets with men - unisex toilets...
