Great Asian fusion tapas. This was our first visit and we were blown away by the flavors. We went with friends and sampled several different dishes. All were fantastic, but the carpaccio is a must! Also, their twist on bananas foster was absolutely amazing. Service...More

I love and frequent the restaurants in this group (Still, Gosport, Bardo, and Public House) but this was the most disappointing. Very warm in the seating area. Server was curt and seemed distracted. I realize a tapas restaurant results in dishes being delivered at irregular...More

Really creative dishes. Good presentation. Wait staff isn't working as a team. This is their biggest weakness. Too bad, because the dishes are really good. Management needs to take everyone to an outing that will help them with team building. Come on guys, don't work...More

I have been here twice, once with one companion and once with a small group. It is great with a group becuase it's fun to share. The variety is excellent, and everything was well-prepared, with a sense of humor and a nod to variety. I...More

The food was extraordinary! A delicious array of small plates. The portion sizes make it convenient to share samples. The carpaccio was especially nice because you are provided a heating device to brown the raw meat if you choose. The service was superb; thoughtful, attentive...More
