“Phenomenal!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I liked everything about this restaurant, which was kind of a funky, eclectic, rathskellar/salsa place. Do NOT be put off by the decor when you first enter; stay, eat, and drink. The food was incomparable; I had the filet with asparagus & garlic mashed potatoes -- the best I have ever had--all of it! Highly, highly recommend!

“Funky Casual Surprise”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

This place is only open early to late evening. They have a decent wine list and a large selection of tapas, plus a smaller menu of entrees. They were very accommodating when we showed up with 9 people for our reservation that was originally for 7 people. "No problem" - the service was friendly and attentive. The food was good to very good. I'd go back.

“Ok experience”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

I visited with a friend. The atmosphere is really nice and staff is welcoming. The prices on the menu made me question what size tapas we were talking about exactly. Our waitress told us they recommend 2 per person, so the portions were good. We ordered calamaris, empanadas, dumplings and prosciutto wrapped artichokes with gorgonzola. We added a soup each. The eggdrop/chicken soup was too salty and not steaming hot. The calamaris were heavily breaded. The empanadas were ok and the dumplings were slightly burned. The artichokes were the best but again very salty. Overall this was disappointing for us. We have tried other tapas restaurants (in other cities) before and this was poor to average quality of food. I was shocked to find out that they were rated among the best in Rochester!

“Excellent restaurant and experience”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Took our RIT daughter and a friend here for dinner. we had never had tapas before but wanted to try something new. Am really glad we did. We had a great meal of 8 tapas dishes and 2 desserts, which we all shared. Some of the food was familiar and some was more unusual (like watermelon shrimp) but everyone just loved it. It's a nice atmosphere, kind of a relaxed vibe. It was very busy on Saturday night, I am glad I had a reservation. Since we visit Rochester a lot now that our daughter lives there, I know we will be back here again. Really excellent.

Great food and service! Atmosphere was unique and very cool! We tried a few different apps and a dessert all very good. Martinis were great and well priced!
