You may have to search a little bit to find it but it is worth the effort. We went on a Wednesday evening which is their Tapas night. Attempted to make a dinner reservation but we were advised that nothing was available before 8:00 pm. We were also advised that if we arrived at 6:00 pm opening we could dine at the bar which is what we did. Excellent bar tender. As the bar was at the entrance, a couple came in after us and were asked if they had a reservation and they did not. They were, however, taken to an upstairs table. What's the deal? Nothing before 8:00pm and yet walk-ins seated?
Tapas were fun and very well prepared. Tempura shrimp were excellent as were Moroccan meatballs. The surprise of the evening was sautéed green beans with crispy onions. So good we had a second order. Would definitely recommend their Wednesday Tapas night.

Hi Puddledocker,

Thank you for your nice review!
Concerning the reservation policy, we try to give all diners at least 2 hours for their dinner and have a certain amount of tables open for walk-ins. We must have had the feeling that you were comfortable at the bar, otherwise we would have reconsidered our table situation.

We're happy to hear that you liked our food, I remember you mentioning how it was possible to make something as simple as green beans taste as good as they did!

Recommended by a friend we showed up without reservation. We were eelcomed very friendly and were seated at the chef's table. Great view on the kitchen-action with professional staff and also very friendly. We had a two course dinner with exceptional dishes. That is: the menu at Kome is out of the ordinary and surprisingly tastefull. We had to skip dessert, it was more than enough. With a nice bottle of new Zealand white wine the cheque was just under usd 140,- not cheap but worth every dollar! We will be back for sure.

Dear Luc P,

Many thanks for your wonderful review.

The Chef's table is a popular place to sit, and like you said gives a great view into our busy kitchen.

We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed two course dinner, guess you'll just have to come back for dessert another time!

See you again soon!

Great place with a lively atmosphere!

We visited on Tapas Night and tried many different dishes - all were great! We paired the food with Sangria that was very nice.

Reservations a MUST!

My wife and I enjoyed the most delicious lunch here. The building itself is beautiful, the interior a very neat design. The menu had great selections. My wife had the quiche and salad, with the homemade iced tea...yummmmm! I had the fish tacos and parmesan fries which were also amazing. the presentation is also nice. Would def come back to taste the dinner menu and dessert.
