    Food and Atmosphere was Great!

    On July 9, 2011 we stopped in at 5:30 PM to have a nice dinner. We were sat at a table outside which was a lovely spot to be. We ordered a drink and asked what the people next to us were having. We ordered a started and were brought the wrong order and wh

    While the atmosphere is pleasant, the noise was not. Our server made good recommendations but the quality and size of the portions was disappointing. Most of the dishes were not served hot and should have been. We have tried many tapas restaurants in m

    Great Lunch!

    Best tapas

    Highly recommend - for the most delicious, beautifully plated, most refined tapas in Chicago. Excellent quality ingredients prepared with care by talented people. Thoughtful - and long - wine list. The cheeses with creative accompaniment were a favorite

    Everything I tried was fabulous, especially the bacon wrapped dates (drizzled with cheese sauce tableside), the cadi urgelia cheese with truffled lavender and apple jam, and the pork belly that melted under the fork. I can't wait to go back and try it fo
