"Upon walking in, I was already in love with the decor. The food was amazing although on the smaller size. They recommend 5-6 tapas plates for 2. The octopus and coquettes was my favorite dishes but all the dishes were flavorful. This place is great to bring friends or a date. Food is always a nice ice breaker."

"The pear-almond gazpacho was revelation. A real treat. Another stand out for me is the Tortilla Espanol, a classic Spanish dish. I make this at home, but at the restaurant it is fluffy and the red pepper sauce just make it pop. My wife loved the duck salad. Best of all, they offer many gluten-free options. A delightful meal."

"The Spanish olive oil flight was amazing. Croquetas of Jamon were pretty addictive too. Service was excellent. We had a really friendly server who checked in on us now and then. My only real disappointment was the churros. They looked beautiful on the outside, but were mushy and soggy on the inside. Overall, my guests and I had a lovely evening."

"I read many great reviews and decided to have sunday brunch here for SF restaurant week.
However, service was extremely slow. There were long waits in between ordering, getting food, refilling water, etc. I was also disappointed with the Bocadillo Sandwich I ordered. It looked so sad, only one measly piece of sausage with some cheese and egg on french bread. Not to be mean, but I would of been happier with eating breakfast from fastfood chains. It might of been an off day and looked like they were understaffed. It was an okay experience, but I will consider coming back again to give them another chance.

"Took my favorite mentor there for a thank you dinner for all his support and advocacy. The food was GREAT! There were a few larger tables around us so the service wasn't the most attentive. Was a totally small issue, if we would have gotten our drink order in before our server attended to the other larger tables that we were there before, it would have been a non-issue. But it really wasn't that big of a deal, the food and pacing otherwise was great, we fully enjoyed our dinner and were there all night doing the tapas tasting which was really fun."

"They took an hour before bringing out a coffee we ordered - the coffee was wrong, it took an additional 20mins to bring the right coffee. A drink was spilled on two of us, that is fine mistakes happen, but we had to ask them to take away the broken glass & our waitress did not come over to acknowledge the incident. One of our meals was incorrect and we were told it was something else (my vegan friend was given a meat dish saying it was vegetables only) - when we told them it was the wrong meal, they read us back the order they had taken down wrong in an effort to inform us that they were in fact correct. They then offered to remove the extra (wrong) meal from our cheque (but of course it would not be on our cheque, we never ordered it!) . Overall it took us 2.5 hours to have brunch (we were not planning on spending half our morning eating brunch).
It was a shame the service was so bad as the food really was very good :/"

"We initially chose this restaurant because of the location and the fact that the menu indicates the items that are gluten free. The service was good and the food was even better. We ordered several tapas and not a single one disappointed. Will definitely come back!"

"Great spot. Definitely will be back. Rarely write reviews but felt compelled due to excellent food and service. Very well done. Iberian ham and machete cheese was a great start. The scallop dish was out of this world. Next time will order a whole plate of that as a tapas."

"I've been looking forward to dining at this neighborhood restaurant. The atmosphere is very lovely, but it is very noisy. I enjoyed the croquetas de jamon and the chicken milenesa, but disliked the pickled beets on the chorizo flatbread, the crunchy pork skin cracklin' cortezas (they were tasteless), and the braised, stuffed cabbage rollitos were inedible. It was super tart and contained way too much cinnamon. Although a few of my dinner companions added to the awkward dining experience, the food for the most part missed the mark. The chef/co-owner of the restaurant spoke to us and was kind enough to take some of the dishes off of the bill, which wasn't necessary, but appreciated. I do not think I'll be back anytime soon. There are far too many other restaurants in SF to dine."
