I love a dimly lit bar, loud conversations, great energy, unique delicious food and expansive draft beer selection, thus Dandelion Market was perfect! The tapas were a perfect sharing size (we had the Prosciutto Crostinis, Calamari and Grilled Steak Skewers) for two people. Each plate...More

What a fun place! Interesting tapas style menu. We shared five between two people. May have been a bit much (four might have been the right amount!). All delicious.

This is a great spot for a date or to go with friends. Just don't go too late on Fri/Sat because it turns into a bar/club at 9 PM and it gets really loud. If you're interested in the young 20 social scene, it's perfect...More
