We showed up as a party of three while the fourth person in our group was parking the car. The restaurant had a table for four available, as well as two separate tables each for two people. The hostess said she would seat us momentarily in the four-top, but asked us to wait while our fourth arrived. The couple behind us was seated to split the four-top (instead of in one of the available two-tops), thus making it impossible for us to be seated at a table. We sat at the bar and watched while the available three two-tops went unoccupied for the hour-and-a-half we were at the restaurant. What a drag. Ruined the evening for us. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Who needs the attitude?

Went there for dinner on a Friday night. Went early to get a table. We were finally seated and WOW. Best meal I've had in Boston. The food is spectacular. The tuna belly, foie, marrow are musts. The anchovies were delicious. And...the corn. Yea it's crowded. Yes it's loud. That's what you're signing up for. Would and will go back again and again.

Best Spanish food in town: recommend the corn, Kobe burgers, patatas bravas and for brunch a pitcher of mimosa and some of their eggs with sausage with a side of the best sourdough toast. Bon appetit.

Food is terrific, not fancy but super tasty. Half star off for being too salty. Would be 5 stars for service except for the chore of getting a table sans reservations. Atmosphere docked a half star because you have to yell to hear your dinner partner but the lively crowd and noise is a plus. Don't miss the corn, short ribs. Order a few filling dishes such as patatas bravas to keep cost down if very hungry. Steak entree disappointing. Cocktails are excellent though pricey. No one thing stands out (ok maybe the corn), but it all comes together as a great dining night. Worth the long wait (or go early or late).

Was there twice. Food is fantastic. However it's really load inside. The gambas are the best. Lack of desserts though.

I came here with friends to celebrate. We had wonderful Sangria and amazing food. The garlic shrimp were tasty and satisfying. The corn dish was outstanding-covered in a butter/sauce/cheese. The tuna ceviche was awesome (totally worth the mercury intake), empanadas were crisp and had a great sauce, and the green peppers were outstanding. All of our food came at once, which was a little crazy, but we just kept eating and loving it! The churros at the end were the perfect ending with a spicy chocolate sauce.

The tapas here are so good, and reasonably priced for the quality. The waitstaff and bartenders are extremely friendly. The only problem is that the restaurant and bar area are very small and the kitchen closes at 10. We tried to go 3 times before we finally were able to get our names in and sit at the bar while we waited to be seated at a reasonable hour.
