4 of us stopped by about 5:30 pm on July 14th and were shown to the last available table. The hostess and wait staff were excellent. We ordered 6 tapas and they were an excellent value for a delicious experience.

On a recent Friday night at 5:00 PM it was packed. The server explained to my wife we had to vacate the table by 6:30 PM because reservations were made for the table was outdoors, raised café-style hardly noteworthy for views or anything. My wife ordered a chicken pasta entre that included a salad. Unfortunately the chicken pasta was saturated... More

Very good food, but a solo guitarist/singer was way too loud. I don't think anyone was listening because the decibel level rose considerably when he began to play and then dropped way down during his intermission. If we went again I would wait until a night when there was no entertainment.

I was expecting much more and I shouldn't have. This place serves some entrées but mostly small plates (tapas). It has a reasonable wine list (had an Oregon Pinot noir for $38). Selected three entrées that were uneven in quality. The much hyped paella Valencia has nothing to do with paella Valenciana and it was disappointing. The Chipotle BBQ ribs... More

Thanks for dining with us, and for your comments. We do offer a rather varied menu as you pointed out. Generally speaking, we pull it off quite well - sorry to hear that you were not pleased with some of your selections. The Chorizo Meatballs are simply that - Chorizo, Roasted Peppers, Garlic, and Fresh Herbs, and no Breading. The... More

The food has been good, we have been here several times and are trying something new on the menu each time. So far it has been consistently good flavors and value. The service can feel rushed because it is very busy. Reservations are recommended.

Best food I've had in a long time. I tried Paella Valencia, and it was a amazing. The pinchos beef was also great. The meat was tender and the flavor was unique. To finish I had a creme brûlée, which I think you should definitely consider trying. My compliments to the chef!!!! Great place! Great Food.

This was our first visit to El Gato Azul and we were beyond impressed. The many different choices made it very difficult to choose what we were going to have. With the assistance of the waitress and other customers, who were regulars, we made some outstanding choices. The meal was great, the waitress was attentive and the prices are excellent.... More
