Haven't been to this place for a very long time. Chapel st is not a place that draws me in. We visited during the week for dinner and it was relatively quiet with only one waitress. Service was fast and the food was very nice,...More

The overpowering smell of urine on arrival was probably the high point of this dining experience. Poor food, horrible service, ordinary wine list - the Spanish government should be all over this for the bad name it gives to Spain.
