Go if you must, but know there are so many better places in the area. The food is good and so are the drinks but they are expensive. They also have a tendency to use a lot of salt in their food...

Just went here for brunch after only ever going to the continental in mid-town. Not bad - very delicious brunch options. Again very small and diner feeling and not like the one in mid-town.

I may have been, along with my wife, the oldest couple in the restaurant at age 50. However, despite the trendy music and decor, it all adds up to perhaps a better sequel than the Continental on Market street. From the waiter, to the speed of service, knowledge of the menu and drinks, this had it all. I soon found out why they don't take resrvations, they don't have to. On a Thursday night opening at 5pm, by 6pm both bars were packed and most of the two floors of seating. We had the Thai chicken skewers, Pad Thai crab, and our fav the Cheese steak egg rolls. The bread pudding was a great ending to the meal. It was upbeat, stylish, and since its a Tapas restaurant you get to taste quitea few meals at the same sitting. Just Go!

Small portions, fair prices, tasty food, great service but parking is a pain. Can't really complain about the restaurant overall. I enjoy eating here occasionally and apparently others do also.
