I have previously reviewed the Paella Bar side of this restaurant very favorably here on TA. But recently we went to our third monthly wine tasting. They do this the first Monday of every month. Cost is $25.00 per person and you get around 6-7 one ouce wine pours, tapas plates to accompany the wines (though they never actually tell you if certain foods are intentionally paired with certain wines), a small plate dessert and an etched glass to take home. If you bring your glass back to each tasting you get 10% off your bill. This is a fun event with a great opportunity to taste a number of wines and some great, unique tapas.
What could improve? The service last night, at times was painfully slow for both food and wine. We didn't get our first tapas plate until we had sat at our table with our first wine for 30 minutes! If the food and wine were supposed to be a match, we'd never know. The wine was gone by the time the food came. The servers are very friendly and fun, but the timing of service needs improvement. Could use just a little bit more food and the wine pours need work: one time we're getting barely an ouce and the next time closer to two ounces or more. Wine pouring for tastings is an art. I know because I poured for professional wine conferences (hundreds of people) for many years. These Monthly wine tastings (I believe they call them Wine Socials) are a blast, but there's definitely room for improvement. You can also buy all the poured wines by the bottle before you leave at "supposedly" wholesale pricing. We'll return and hope for the best.
