Over priced for value. (Sunday lunch , I cant review dinner, I was told its a different experience) Lets start with the good : - chicken steak was amazing (and I'm a beef guy) - lamb sliders were ok - service was good - the mushrooms with goat cheese were really good. now to the bad - the band, nice guys, the music was so loud no one could hear what the other people at the table were saying - the steak was just bad piece of meat (cheap) - could barely cut it, and it was medium rare - the empanadas were ok- not that good - the hotdog was not tasty - the potatoes were not good - the fries were socked in oil - not good

Impressive wine and spirit selection. Jazz brunch on Sunday with a make your own bloody Mary bar that was out of this world. Can't wait to come back.

Our half our wait turned into an hour quickly, and that was at 9pm! Pretty crazy. I don't normally eat that late, but I guess it's Spanish food so we should eat late :) We had a few drinks at the bar while we waited, which was packed. We started getting nervous for the table size, as unless you got a booth it seemed too small for tapas plates, and we were right. Our drinks were great, except the white sangria which was a bit boring. Like something was missing. My whisky root was great as was my caipirinha. I don't recall everything we had, but the olives were enough for 10 people, and the mussels were mostly great. One was still closed and one was really gritty (glad I got it at the end otherwise I would not have been able to keep eating them). The frittata wasn't close to the best either of us had had. Service was okay, had to ask for water refills and a few other things, and sometimes didn't see him for a long time.

Response from the owner - 5 months ago
Hello Alex, I wanted to thank you for your feedback on your visit with us. Our goal is that everyone's visit is perfect, but we clearly missed the mark for you on this evening. Your comment on the white sangria is particularly interesting, and not uncommon. You may be happy to know that because of your input we are redoing our recipe for that item. Though everyone's taste varies, boring is something we want to eliminate immediately. It seems clear that you understand mussels, and other shellfish, are difficult to control to each item, but I have discussed your other comments with chef Emilio and we are looking into the tortilla and how it can be improved. I again want to thank you for taking your valuable time to reach out to us and help us improve. I hope you get to visit again, outside of the the holiday crush, to see your feedback in action. Take care, Jon Tosi General Manager

They just added a Bloody Mary bar - build your own cocktail. It was great. The candied bacon was heavenly. Next time, I might skip the liquid and load up on bacon in my glass....

This is by far one of the best restaurants in the Boston area. From starting with the amazing crispy bread to ending with churros and chocolate sauce. The chicken croquettes are better than drunk pizza at 3am. The jamon bikinis are amazing as well. Before dessert, order the sausage paella. You won't be sorry!!!!

Good selection of tapas and all the ingredients seemed fresh. Nice wine and cocktail variety. Spicy things weren't really that spicy and the lamp we got was a little over cooked (for medium rare). It seemed that the vegetable dishes out shined the meat dishes. Bottom line however is that the food, for the price, didn't compare to other tapas places in Boston & Cambridge that are $2 - $3 dollars cheaper per plate (and have better plate pacing). You will get a good meal here but it won't blow your mind. Small items: It took forever to get drinks. Our first round of drinks came 10mins after we got our first tapas dish. Cheese board came out halfway through our meal. Coffee and Cappuccino arrived half way through eating our dessert (and the desserts were not as good or fresh as the tapas plates) Pacing was just off for the whole night. Other than that the Hostess and Servers were nice and attentive. Never felt rushed or unattended.

Busy, romantic tapas house with gorgeous décor, skilled service, and delicious food. Salad: Lettuce, tomatoes, marinated onions, and olives topped with a sharp vinaigrette. I was ready to be underwhelmed (my friend chose it) but it was a great portion and with a bracing flavor. Probably a great paring with some richer tapas. Mussels: I've never seen mussels with as much meat as these! Aside from that, I don't have much to say...they were briny and came in a very spicy tomato based sauce. Meatballs: out of this world. We dipped our bread in the sauce (and barked at the waiter when he assumed we were finished because the meatballs were gone). Patatas bravas: the best I've had. They were really crispy and the sauce was sour (it's a cream sauce) and it comes with a spicy tomato sauce underneath. Caipirinha: 4 muddled limes were involved I'm a sour fiend, so this drink rocked my socks. It tasted like, lime, rum, and sugar...sour and sweet and not watered down. Small bill mix up at the end (they gave us someone else's) but was corrected before we left.

Waited 2.5 hours after being told initially just a 1 hour wait. Not sure how you can be that far off on an estimate for a table for 3. Host didn't really seem to care much either. Food might have been great but I'll never know.
