We came here for big taste before they started renovating and it was amazing. It was a set menu so we didn't get to choose too much but either way, a lot of great food was presented. Some great dishes that stood out were the stuffed Persian dates, Salt cod & potato croquettes, and the marinated flank steak. Drink selection... More

Quite good, came for The Big Taste. Highlight was the skirt steak with potatoes. Our enjoyment was marred only by the very high noise level and draft from the door. A good experience overall.

Came here for Big Taste. Really enjoyed how the menu was 9 different share plates for 2 people. It's really nice to get a good variety, as most places offer you a lame soup or salad, main, and a cliche dessert. Service was great and prompt. Almost too quick as we finished dinner within 1 hour and 15 min. (... More

We came in tonight for a few small plates. We each ordered a drink. Our first two plates were out before our drinks and we had to ask the waiter twice where our drinks were. Once he finally brought the drinks he took the time to compliment himself on a perfect pour of beer from can to glass. It wasn't... More

Love the atmosphere, love the Basque food and ESPECIALLY love the cocktails. Try some of the spicier varieties to experience something new, and enjoy some Serrano ham and a Paella for two !

I get tapas is small plates but the prices should be set to better represent the portions, I found some of prices comparable to what could be considered a cheaper entree at other places. The service here is good though and the food is good however I left hungry, so either be prepared to spend a lot or maybe fill... More

The food strives to be traditional Spanish but having lived in Spain, I find it pretentious and to "complex" to represent the traditional cuisine of Spain. It's also expensive. It's a good spot for a special night out but I wouldn't just pop-in for a bite to eat.

Really nice atmosphere and great food. My husband and I shared the fixed price menu and we left satisfied. I think we had about 10 dishes and dessert and the dishes were so tasty. Really different food and the presentation was nice. The wine selected for us was great. Another plate was placed on our table as we finished the... More

I was surprised with the amazing food. The ambient is good and too crowded for a Sunday. Delicious tapas and good coffee

The wine list was great the ambiance was great and good location. However the food fell really flat. We had a few appetizers none of which were anything to write home about. Then we ordered the paella which you wait 40 minutes for (totally fine by us) so we had high expectations. Neither of us enjoyed it because it was... More
