Well, after watching Cirque du Soleil's Mystere (that show was awesome!!!), my family and I decided to find something good to eat. Well my parents decided to eat at Spago. My parents have been to the Spago at Beverly Hills, so I decided to trust them. The atmosphere of the restaurant was great (we didn't go to the cafe because it was too crowded and we want to be secluded). The waiters were especially nice, although they felt like robots, one thing that I hate, waiters that act like robots and with no expression whatsoever. I forgot what my family chose, but I decided to go with their Crabcakes as an appetizer, and the Seafood Paella as the main course, \r
When the Crabcakes came out, the plating of the dish was very elegant. The crabcakes were of good proportions and the size was small enough to give me a start. I like my crabcakes with a crisp, but these crabcakes felt breaded, although I do not remember exactly what the covering was made of. However, to comtemplate for the non-crispness, the crabcakes were especially rich with flavor. It wasn't too rich so that I wouldn't be able to taste my main course, that I like.\r
However, when the Seafood Paella came out, I was very much disappointed. The taste of the paella was great, once again rich and juicy. There was seafood in the paella, but the paella came with a huge chunk of chicken. There was actually more chicken than seafood in the Seafood Paella. Now, if a Seafood Paella has more chicken than seafood that doesn't really seem good to eat. Why they just call the Seafood Paella the Chicken Paella. Nevertheless, the taste was exceptional.\r
Finally, my parents, having been to the Beverly Hills Spago, wanted a melted cheese dish that was Beverly Hills exclusive. What was impressive was the the head chef gladly decided to make this dish, even though did not have the right cheese to make the dish. The dish was stringy and and went well with the flatbread. At the end, I had some tea. I would come back here again.
Pros: Great food; chef willing to make food however way you want
Cons: Does not understand what a Seafood Paella is
