Very good tapas. Service was confused as two different servers seemed to not know who was responsible for us. Our drinks did not arrive simultaneously and we had to ask for one dish which had apparently not been ordered with the rest of our food. More

The food and the service are great. The only downside to this place is that it really needs a renovation. The interior design is not what I’d expect for the price of the meal. More

Contemporary American | TriBeCa - Downtown, Manhattan

The food was delicious. The chef was rude. We were a party of 4 with a moderate noise level coming from our table. One of the waitstaff came over and let us know that the chef requested us to lower our voices. At over $500 per person with alcohol, I found this rude and unacceptable. We have dined at many top restaurants around the world, Eleven Madison, etc and have never been “scolded” at our table with our guests. More
