“Absinthe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

This is a very casual restaurant with a huge rectangular bar. I love this style layout of a bar, it is gregarious and fun! They offer a really interesting presentation of different types of Absinthe. We enjoyed the presentation as much as getting to try all the different types from different countries and choosing our favorite! The cold water comes in a hand blown glass pitcher with 3 spouts, the spouts slowly drip the water over a cube of sugar that is resting on a slotted spoon into the 3 Absinthe filled glasses below. Adorable! I want one! We added much less water to the Absinthe than the waiter suggested, super fun buzz! Bacon wrapped dates are amazing! They go great with the buzz, LOL, I ate 10 of them. Food is served tapas style, small portions made to share. This was a fun restaurant. It is packed with people all through the week, and weekends are crazy. We wanted to go back a second time but it was Friday night and crazy busy at 9. The owners are doing a great job! Fun restaurant! Great for children and families as well. Great price point. Between $8-$12 per tapas, serving nice quality food.

“Great happy hour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

We are frequent visitors to Bite as we have a vacation home in Incline Village and are never disappointed. Fun bar with friendly servers. Early happy hour from 5-6 -- try the tomato soup and honey ribs! Great for a party of 2 or 10. The plates are small which encourages sharing and trying new things. Not ideal for little kids but our daughter has been going to Bite for a few years and she's only 11. Try it!

“Just What We Needed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

We were looking for a place for dinner, but no one was super hungry. Bite was exactly what we needed. The small plates were perfect as we got to sample many items but didn't need to order full meals.
The fish tacos were incredible. The lamb meatballs were pretty good. Grilled asparagus was a great side, as were the sweet potato fries. And for dessert, the key lime bites were perfect.
Eating a full meal here would get expensive pretty fast. I think it's best if you want a light dinner, but also want to try many different flavors.

“Amazing Tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

There was 7 of us and deciding what to eat was getting into a long story so our friend Kathy suggested a unique twist on Tapas where we could all choose dishes and they were something new and quirky. Boy was she right, they were flat out and only had a table in the bar that turned out to be just what we needed. It was at the back and very quiet but the bet part was the food and amazing service, a special thank-you to Lissy our waitress who took care of us like kings! I have had tapas all over the world but this one left me begging for more, i cant remember all the dishes we had but all were delicious.
