We came in with a somewhat large crowd later in the evening. Recommendation to management: don't sit guests if you cannot provide adequate service. 20+ minutes to take our order. Missing entrees (yup). Rude service. Really unfortunate especially considering the outrageous prices. Skip.

We won't return for a long time. The food was delicious...but the service was terrible. The elderly waiter of Asian Indian descent took an attitude of "...what now? Do you think I'm here to serve you?" with every turn. Too bad.

Great tapas place and all the food has always been good here. I had the calamari and empanadas. Service was excellent and we had a small room. Room was a bit cramped with 12 if us but it was intimate and private.
