“So fun!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

My daughter who has an amazing pallet for 10 years old loves coming to Bazaar as much as I do! She calls it her Alice in Wonderland restaurant! It's all tapas and its a must to get the sweet potato chips! I love the decor everything in the restaurant is fun! The food is amazing love the cocktails get the martini with the Cotten candy! I enjoy having dinner in one space then going over to the dessert lounge. So fun and great vibe and energy. It's palace to be seen for sure!

“Amazing! Incredible culinary experience!”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

This restaurant is absolutely amazing! If you are looking for an extraordinary evening... The place is different from any place I went to. The decorum is very original (Bob Starks chairs and movie atmosphere) but your real surprise in the food. it's molecular cooking BUT with a REAL taste. You should not miss the olives (what would be more "normal" than an olive?... but here, under the care of Jose Andres, the olives are much more than just olives!)... Truth should be said, an evening there would make it for an unforgettable night!... The cocktails (with smoking mojitos!... the barbapapa cocktails) are absolutely impressive. An original place with a unique food experience. I went three times and have never been disappointed! - the personal is very helpful and help you make it a very memorable night.

“Wow! Gourmet at its best.”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

For a very, very, special night out this is one that delivers. The food is unique and delicious. It doesn't matter if your food is molecular cooked or if it is by fire it will be a taste you long remember.Because of the richness of the food you will be glad it is a Tapas service. Little plates with big, mouthfilling tastes. From the traditional Quesos & Sopas to modern Taps that runs the gamut from a cavier cone to a Japenese Taco you will know you have eaten something special. The setting is beautiful and welcoming for all the beautiful people around you.

“a great night out”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Great combination of classic and modern tapas with Jose Andres molecular twist. The ambiance was very cool and the dessert area was a nice change from the norm.
