Seating is where people walk and it i at a bar. I would not eat there again. There are not real TAPAS but finger food.

This is literally just a countertop restaurant in the hotel lobby. It's a cute little place with great bottle of tequila on display. I found the prices to be too expensive but I think everything in the hotel was. The strawberry lemonade, which was an adult beverage, wasn't good. It was too syrupy. I needed some carbonation added to be... More

As others have already mentioned, this restaurant/bar is an interesting set up in that it has a combined service set up with the Banshoo Sushi Bar that is setup immediately opposite across the primary north-south lobby walkway that take you from registration to the Grand Ballroom area.

Ate here after spending the day at the Zumba Convention--the staff were great & were jamming to the Zumba tunes from the adjacent lobby bar. The food was excellent & drinks were quite good. It was great not having to look for a place to eat since we did not have a rental car.

Quick, delicious, nice staff who clearly love their job! Portions are big for tapas. I ordered two things and wish I just got one! At a conference at the convention center and dining alone. So glad I didn't eat in my room!!

Had lots of fun sitting at the bar and chatting with the chefs. We let them pick our menu and they didn't steer us wrong! Marcus and Joshua were fun and knowledgable and very talented. Yum! Get the ribs and traditional ceviche and empanadas!
