“Confusing Experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

First of all, people should know that this is tapa's joint. Not anywhere on the menu is it mentioned and the staff was not forthcoming. In fact, I got an impression hostess deliberately misrepresents waiting time to either drive people away or inflate exclusivity. We were told 45 minute wait and got seated in 10, few couples after us was told an hour and a half.
As for the food, it was OK. A normal person needs to order at least 2 dishes to be full. Also, there are no lists of ingredients for each dish, so if you have allergies beware. Half of our crew was vegan, so we couldn't share much. Many of us took issue with classic tomato soup. I've never seen a soup served by itself, no crackers and no slice of bread. Baby back ribs were ok, so were the filet mingon bits. Deserts were great, but black&white martini was about half of what you usually get at bars.
Server was great and courteous, but was a little confused when we asked to split the bill.

“Great tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

They have a variety of very good small plates and we have tried many of them. The "green eggs and ham" deviled eggs are fantastic. As far at the rest, pick what you like because you can't go wrong. This place is very busy on the weekends so plan accordingly. Also, costs can sneak up on you with the small portions.

“Tasty, varied dishes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Novel combinations that present a full pallet of textures are the highlight. The service is excellent and the prices moderate (by resort standards). The server was very helpful describing the dish content and serving sizes, so we had no problem ordering the right amount.

I prefer spicy/hot dishes and found everything a bit bland, but that's a personal preference. Think of it as smooth jazz.

“What a gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

Bite is located in a strip mall and we would have passed it had someone not told us about it. The food was excellent. The place was very busy. We ended up eating at the bar. Everything is prepared with fresh ingredients, even the margarita was made with fresh limes. Sampled lots of the appetizers and small plates. Every dish was full of flavor and variety. Highly recommend Bite.

We're glad you had the inside scoop so you didn't miss us! We take pride in the fresh ingredients we use, so thanks for pointing that out. Because that's how we prepare our food, we constantly have new dishes as seasonal ingredients become available. Thank you for the fantastic review and great recommendation. Come back and see us again any time you're in the area to try some of our new creations.

All the best,

Brooke and Thomas, Owners

“Tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Does not look like much from the outside. In fact, we would not have found this place without seeing it listed on the Internet. The food was great. We had the lobster sliders, gumbo, a salad, lamb meatballs, and ice cream sandwiches. We left very full, and I can't say that for most other Tapas type restaurants I have been to.
