we took clients to this restaurant, and were very very disappointed. it took 30 minutes just to have the waiter come to take our order, then the food came out an hour later. not to mention, the two burgers came out first, and our guests had to sit and wait for the rest of us to get our food (another 10 minutes). food is hard to eat and overall, it was NOT a good experience.

Being a fan of Chef Garces, I was delighted to get a reservation here for our 1 night in Philly. Needless to say we were not disappointed. 2 of us shared 6 tapas and a dessert. What a great meal! We weren't crazy about the crabmeat stuffed peppers, but everything else was delightful.

The staff were very friendly , knowledgeable and time friendly. The atmosphere was great and so many different culinary delights. The raw oysters were phenomenal !!

There is nothing bad I can say about this place. I have been once and think it's the best place in the city. Their food is unbelievable!

Was in town with family from NYC. Did quite a bit of research on top rated restaurants in Philly for the weekend. Thought tapas would be a nice option. Unfortunately was pretty unimpressed. I understand how simplicity is now being reexamined, though this was a bit too simple. Quite pricey for what was given, and I'm referring to the quality. Over cooked trad. octopus, irrelevant muddled flatbreads, unimpressive clams with micro-wavish "noodles", and silly uninspired deserts. Hard to get a reservation, with just average trendy decor and atmosphere. Just an odd set up. I must say the waitstaff was extremely accomodating, and very well trained. Definately the most impressive part. Except for the "coat girl" with odd bangs who had an attitude. Seems to be an odd trend in Philly, sets a bad precedent at the beginning and of a meal. My recommendation is go to Alma de Cuba for some exciting food and decor (only). Maybe tapas places like this are newly appreciated in Philly, but this place would be super average and oddly less expensive in NYC.

We were not able to get a reservation even though we were planning an early dinner so we gave it a try hoping we could eat at the bar. We were thrilled when we were able to geta a table at the bar which was a very nice setting. The service was excellent-efficient without being rushed (the bar tender served one of our beers when the waitress was busy with a bigger table). The advice from Mia was great and the food combinations were very unusual- wanted to savor every bite. Grilled Chorizio, Spanish Octopus and Short Rib Flatbread were fabulous!The Sangria was flavorful and not too sweet. Made us realize how lucky we are to live in PHL. and have so many great restaurant choices...we will definitely be back!
