This place feels like a lounge, and everyone definitely comes dressed to impress. It feels almost clubby inside bc it is gorgeous and dimly lit. I made a reservation for 7 girls for a bachelorette party and the earliest they told me they could squeeze us in was 9pm. After calling a few more times I was able to move it up to 8pm. Upon arrival the place was half empty for a Saturday night! They sat us at a smaller, raised round table/banquette where two of us where sitting at the end of it in chairs. With empty tables, we could have had more room at a larger table. Our waiter was great and even sent us a few more dessert options than what was allowed for their Chicago Restaurant Week special they offered, which we all decided upon. The food was phenomenal and everyone thought so as well, but the portions were a little too small. (I know these are tapas, but for how many we could choose from, there didn't seem to be enough for everyone.) If it wasn't for a few of these minuses, I would definitely give this place 5 stars. I plan to go back! We had roasted eggplant & pepper crostini, charred fennel salad, gnocchi, pan-seared scallops, and all the desserts. One half sized drink was included as well.

I am surprised by the high ratings on here when we have such great food in Chicago--places that really deserve five stars. The atmosphere is warm and pleasant, sure. The food, however, was uninspired and overpriced. Their paella was dry (I am Spanish, so it was a bit of an insult, honestly) and everything else that I tried was completely underwhelming. Kind of like a super-expensive Applebees, sorry to say.

I love love love Tavernita and didn't think anything could make me love it more until recently when I was back there on a Wine Crawl! Tavernita is a very expansive place with an open floorplan and lots of seating. It's beautifully done, too, with a stunning interior. Servce is always aone and both the food and drinks are amazing. I have never been disappointed on any of my visits there. And I recently became a fan of their housemade bloody mary.... oh so good. Plus they may be the only place that serves signature cocktails out of kegs! Yes, cocktails on tap! And their booty collins is probably their most popular. It's easy to see why, too, as it is so refreshinly delicious. The owners of Tavernita also claim Mercadito and Little Market and FYI - they are adding 2 more places to their list opening soon in Chicago.

Surprised there isn't a separate page for Barcito but my review is for Barcito. Love the decor and atmosphere here. I usually try to go to the Amigos of Pintxo events.The one I went to was last April with Paul Kahn of Blackbird and Mattias Merges of Yusho. Pintxo Mondays are usually held every other week from 8-10 p.m with a different guest chef, and you'll be able to get all-you-can-eat small tapas dishes for $25 per person. Best part is the proceeds are donated to Common Threads, which educates children on nutrition. The collaboration between different chefs and restaurants is awesome. Go early because seats fill up fast.

Good tapas, good wine list. Gorgeous interior. A bit loud on a Friday night to chat with friends, but overall, a good experience.
