This is a tiny little place, located a block off the courthouse square.....but it's someplace you need to try. For such a small place, their menu is really broad.....it features small plate offerings (tapas) for the most part and that's a good thing. Everyone orders...More

First of all, it does have a cool vibe and then again, not so much. We had a service dog (with a vest on) and were questioned specifically as to the dog's purpose/job which maybe unbeknownst to the management, it is actually illegal to ask...More

I'm sorry you are confused about the rules regarding service animals in restaurants. Most folks who legitimately require the assistance of a service animal know the laws and are pleased that our staff is well versed and trained properly regarding this. A vest denotes nothing...More

We went to Gato Azul based on all the great reviews and were a bit disappointed. We sat outside on the patio, which was lovely except for the chain link fence around it. Service was uneven... but friendly. We came for the tapas and sampled...More

Tapas selections and tastes were very good. Sangria added to the Spanish ambience along with good service. Live music was waaay too cool. A Spanish guitarist would have been better. The negative relates to putting too many people into a small space.

I love this place. All the tapas are great. And the sangria and margaritas are are to die for. I've never tried any of the meals but I'm sure they are good too.

Enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. Great variety to choose from. The service was good as well. Can fill up, so better early than late.

Went here while we were visiting Prescott. It is off the creek and patio seating is in demand. This place has amazing food! It was a girls lunch and we shared several items: potatoes queso, chicken crepe, buffalo corn dog, and goat cheese with honey....More

If you want something different you are sure to find something to please. We shared the tacos and feta cheese topas (not meals). Two small plates of food and two margaritas each and the price was over $50. The food was excellent but I would...More

My son is getting married in Prescott on March 28. We are looking for an a late afternoon place for a small wedding party dinner (10-12 people). Is this restaurant appropriate? We don't need fancy but want something celebratory. Thanks in advance.
