Went here on Saturday night for a friends birthday and were a party of 6. Overall, I'd say the food was pretty good, with the exception of the steak tartar that contained pieces of steak that were just way too chunky. Aside from the decent food and drinks, the real 2 problems of the night were how HOT it was in the actual restaurant and how AWFUL the service was. Judging from the editorial review of this place, they pride themselves on ""flinging open"" the windows. That's nice if it's a cool breezy summer night... not a sweltering humid one! There is an AC unit on the wall near the bathrooms which they had on but what good does that do if the windows to the whole joint are wide open? The only people that got to enjoy the affects of the AC were the 5 or so tables seated near it which you couldn't pay me to sit in those seats because everyone is standing on line around your table waiting for the bathrooms that are right there staring at you eat! The service is just plain awful here. I really hope that the manager that wrote a review on here actually is reading these other reviews and is taking them into account because honestly, the service is pretty close to one of the worst experiences I've ever had. Our waitress was basically non existant. The poor bus boy was doing ALL the work! We had to chase the waitress down every time we wanted a drink refill, never came by to take our order so we had to chase again after 20 min and it seemed like she has a serious attitude problem. They were putting the food on the table and not watching where they were placing it and were knocking the bowls of olive oil over. One of the dishes we ordered was the seafood paella and they didn't even bring a bowl over for the shells! Worst yet, on the bill they had the nerve to add 20% gratuity! Most places that include gratuity it's only 18%- tops. I don't mind paying for good service, but she sucked! Hope she tipped the bus boy out well b/c he was the one deserving of a tip.
Pros: most food was pretty decent
Cons: SERVICE, too hot and cramped, steak tartar
