Without reservations, we three were able to avoid a long wait, by eating at the bar. Really good tapas- very nice menu, and good selection of beers and wine by the glass. Pretty backed in, so you do have to speak up to keep the...More

We went here before a concert at the Wonder Ballroom right next door. We had to wait about 45 minutes for a table (sat at 7:15). Part of it may have been a concert crowd, but there were obviously a lot of locals who weren't...More

Always a wonderful experience! We usually get there at 5pm when they open (and there's a line...always), but my fiance and I have always been very lucky to get right in and sit at the Chef's table. Great atmosphere and it's fun to watch the...More
