“Fresh and Creative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

All of the ingredients are fresh and the dishes are creatively put together. We had an albacore filet that was exceptional and the accompanying tapenade was sweet and spicy.

“Good tapas and wine!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

It gets busy in the shared tables in the bar area so prepare for a wait. Great tapas and wine menu with a view overlooking the main street-India.

“Pre-dinner drinks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Stopped in to Prep Kitchen for a pre-dinner cocktail. It was average -- drinks were decent and moderately priced. Bartender was a bit dismissive and not overly helpful (seemed annoyed). I will say that the venue is really cool - loved the decor, particularly the private room. Also, we didn't try the food, just drinks.
