First I love Tapas both the concept and generally the experience. That makes this review so disappointing. The food was excellent though at the top for pricing. I can live with this but not the crowded hallway experience. Building layout is horrible this challenges both your comfort as well as your service. Extremely uncomfortable dining and when the service degraded with dessert ruined the evening. Coffee was terrible and only Luke warm. I have been here before and really was looking forward to the evening, it was a full house, I will think twice before walking into this again

The atmosphere of Culturas really promotes an enjoyable evening of good conversation while sharing small delectible plates of food and good wine. The restaurant itself is very interesting, with Culturas being on the second floor. Upon arrival, we were escorted thru the main floor to an elevator up to the second floor. The second floor was a much more relaxed, quiet environment for their tapas and fine dining customers. Small tables were situated around the wall that overlooks a very large courtyard. The service was very prompt and friendly. The real star of the show, however, is the food. The service is organized to start with your cold plate options and then onto to hot plates. Loved, Loved, Loved the crabmeat pockets. We also had a mozarella & tomato salad, aspargus wrapped in salmon, and coconut shrimp with honey dipping sauce. And of course, who wouldn't order dessert...creme brule was amazing! We had a fantastic time and left very satisfied. The only drawback of this restaurant is that the parking lot is way too small for the number of customers they accomodate. Recommend carpooling if taking a large party.

We went on a double date to Culturas. We have eaten t El Serrano multiple times before so we figured we would try their other restaurant. The tapas were delicious! We ordered around 8 tapas and split hem between the four of us. If you sign up on heir website, you can receive a $10 off coupon and use it...which brings the price down a little. Considering he quality of the food, the great service, and the beautiful atmosphere- the price is not bad at all!

Tapas is phenomenal here! Freshly prepared, very tasty. The atmosphere is all about the Mexican experience. What a fun place.

The portions are small, as you would expect on a $9 tapas menu. You'll keep ordering and ordering, and pretty soon you have spent $100 without even thinking about it.

This is a GREAT spot for something new, something exciting or a special occasion.

You can also be smarter than we are. You could just go for apps or for a few small plates or right after eating, but what fun would that be?

Again, this is a fun place!

We really enjoyed the octopus, the goat cheese/tomato jam, and the vieja ropa. The other items we ordered were also good. The restaurant itself is impressive (decor, size, service). The tapas were similar to the ones we had in Spain, but not as delicious. We had a groupon, which made our bill reasonable.
