Great tapas style restaurant very close to MIT campus. Dropping my daughter off at MIT as a freshman and found this place on TA. Walked in on a Sunday night at 8:30 and not very crowded but got more crowded as the night went on. The portions are small and so are the prices. It was 3 of us and... More

We stopped in for a drink before dinner somewhere else and enjoyed the 20's décor, fun staff and refreshing cocktail (I had a Negroni). We'll absolutely come back for dinner here in the future!

Happened on this spot, which turned out to be the highlight of the evening. Not only were the staff amazingly friendly and fun the food was great. We were here on a Saturday evening and it was packed! The music and overall energy was terrific. Felt like a mix of stepping into the 1920s and New Orleans, wonderful evening and... More

With a name this cute, we had to try it out! A small space that can be easily missed. We found metered street parking. Step into this quaint restaurant and be dazzled by the flapper style waitresses and waiters with pizazz. Lighting is dim and perfect for an intimate dinner with a few friends or a date. Though, it can... More

I walked in solo around dinner time to find that this place was packed and they had one seat left at the bar. The restaurant has a really cool vibe to it. The decor was very eclectic and the staff all had some cool vintage/retro clothing. I had aot of the small appetizer style dishes and they all stuck out... More

This out-of-the-ordinary restaurant is the place to go for those who love the unconventional coupled with a fun and coquettish dining experience! The very friendly and waiters dress up and know how to make the delightful dishes even more palatable, not that they need it! All dishes are prepared with much attention to detail and are very tasty. The very... More

So glad we have local friends or we may not have found this place! Fabulous food, fabulous service and a bit of theatre thrown in, with all the amazing outfits worn by the staff. We tried a range of dishes, incorporating a vegetarian and a vegan diet and were all delighted! Scallops, lamb chops, tuna, stroganoff, every bite was delicious!

We have been coming to this place at least for the last 10 years. It never disappoints. They make the best caipirinha you may have tasted and the tapas are all sensational. Excellent service and wonderful atmosphere.

But it pretty much is tapas. A lot of really tasty dishes. Good cocktails, good service. Loved the duck crepes. Quirky atmosphere.

We went with four other couples for drinks and dinner. We had reservations for which we ended up being about 15 minutes late due to traffic and they were very accommodating. Valet parking at the front door or street parking (mind meters if street parking). We started with a drink at the bar and then moved to our table. Staff... More
