“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

Love the food and the atmosphere but I wish they would take better care of their customers by having parking available through the restaurant. Especially if you go and there's an event downtown - you just get charged so much to park that it doesn't seem worth it.

“Small selection, average quality”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Perhaps I'm spolied by the Tapas meals in Chicago, especially Emilio's in Hillside. But I'm used to a much larger selection of much smaller plates that allowed plenty of "tasting". I was disappointed to find a much smaller list and the quality was average.
