I chose this restaurant based on the reviews, and even now I see that the average is a 4, so maybe I just chose some bad things to eat.
I have eaten tapas in Spain, where I do believe they originated, so I was expecting something similar. I was not expecting to order off a plastic menu with all kinds of forks sticking up, which isn't really a big deal unless you're into cleanliness. No offense, but I would rather not touch a fork that's been fondled by other customers as they search for the perfect one.
Had the food been good, I doubt I would have even thought twice about those two items, but because the food was so BAD, I feel like picking on them!
I ordered the mushroom toast and think I got canned mushrooms, chopped up small, but there was a huge taste of garlic in them, and as I cut the toast in bites, half of the topping fell on the plate, meaning it was dry.
I was hungry, ate only 1/2 and then ordered the goat cheese salad. I love goat cheese and if that's in the name, you'd expect to actually HAVE some goat cheese in the salad. It was a large portion of a salad with your typical salad mixture and LOADS of dressing (I think Italian. If not, then Italian based.) So much of that was there that in the bottom, there were about 3 tablespoons that had settled. Way too much.
The goat cheese I got was one piece about the size of a half dollar, only thicker of course. That manager of that restaurant should be ashamed to charge $7 for that.
I know this is a weird thing to complain about, but tapas is appetizers. So why would you serve such a large portion, as both were? I think if you went with a group, that would be more fitting, but still, do like a dim sum type of thing.
The decor was really trashy looking. From where I sat, across from the bar, I could see a lot of clutter and disorganization.
Later I mentioned to a resident of Col. Spgs that I'd eaten there and she said, "Oh no, that place is terrible!" So I guess it's just me and her, because the other reviews were really positive.
The ONLY redeeming feature of this restaurant visit was my server, who did a great job waiting on me.
