Can't recommend this place enough! Small but not crowded, great ambience and attentive service. We had the octopus, Brussel sprouts, risotto, Arctic char and the Albariño wine and it was all amazing!
You can see the chef prepare the food right in front of you which is pretty cool. We had the $80 7-course tasting menu, which was well thought out and executed, but I was expecting little more.
Great place for a first date, beautiful presentation with amazing flavours. Not too heavy and a dish or two per person was more than enough for us. Decent wine selection -try something new
Tip: Ask for the half wine-pairing - one pour for every two courses. Just the right amount of wine with your tasting menu. (A 2 oz pour with every bite is a lot by the end of the meal).
Love the 7 course tasting menu. Half pairing costs 40 and full pairing is 70. For first timers stick to half pairing, about 300 for a couple, great value for the price
I recommend the Croquetas, burrata, paella, skirt Steak and duck. Skip the foie gras, they do a weird version of it with vanilla ice cream and cheese that does not work well.
Skip a la carte and go for the tasting menu: a New York bargain at 5-courses for $55. The tiny restaurant seats diners at a counter around an open kitchen -- dinner and a show.
Treat someone special with dinner here. Artichokes in Mussel Broth, Blood Orange/Grapefruit Foam with an Oyster surprise. Photos: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=55527&id=765634189&l=589d602452
I had the 7 course tasting menu here and is an exceptional culinary experience. However, you have to be ready to spend 3 hours inside the restaurant. The service was good but slow.
Degustation’s trendy and contemporary décor also retains old-world service. We loved the squid, but if you are looking for a strictly turf meal the Serrano ham is your best bet.
I must say the dishes are not quite as good as when the first chef started this place service was efficient now service is very slow n food felt just ok nothing really wowed me
Put the menu away and just get the $50 tasting menu. Get the wine pairing too. Make sure you finish w the carmelized torija & a glass of the Jorge Ordinez
For serious foodies only...!! Fun, relax and romantic. Tiny restaurant with huge experience. Will come back if they change the menu. Expensive, but it worth it.
The $55 tasting menu is absolutely the way to go here... one of the best deals in the city, since the food is precisely prepared and absolutely delicious.
Sit at the chefs table and get the tasting menu with wine. Awesome to watch the chefs make your meal right there. Great food and wonderful service!
It's your tiny intimate restautant that's perfect for dates and small groups. Go for the paella and quails. Dessert was okay. Interesting fusion between Japanese/Spanish influences.
Went with my dad for the 10 course and a nice bottle of wine. Had a fantastic meal and had a blast with the staff. Definitely a special meal.
Tasting menu was excellent and quite the deal at $55 for 5 courses. Good rose cava too. Great food and atmosphere and excellent service!
The brûléed French toast with smoked maple syrup is sooooo amazing. I would come back just for it.
The tasting menu is delicious and a deal at $55. Get a different tasting menu from your date so you can try all the dishes!
Intimate and romantic. A perfect date spot. The cute chef and amazing small plates aren't bad either. -Jacqueline Lombard, Top Chef
You will regret not getting the 10 course tasting. Since you're doing that, you might as well get it paired with wine. Its an all around amazing time!
The tasting menu was pretty good. Sit by the corners to get a good view of the chefs and food preparation.
So very delicious. But one of the chefs licks the spoons and forks that he uses to serve you food. Watch for it.
Ask for the half wine-pairing - one pour for every two courses (seven-course prix fixe $80)
The quality/flavors are exceptional for the price: $50 for 5 course tasting. They always allowed me to substitute my 4th course for 2 other proteins. +1!
Squid stuffed with oxtail meat in beef jus/broth was amazing which was a part of the 10 course meal.
Its like sushi bar style where you can see how your dish is made. My fav was Brussels sprouts.
Go to Degustation and order the tasting menu: ambitious, inventive, and delicious. $75 for ten courses.
Definitely order the tasting menu and wine pairing. This is a great date spot, just like Jewel Bako next door.
Chefs prepare meal right in front of you. Everything was delicious Foie Gras was incredible.
REALLY slow service if you don't sit at the bar - I'm pretty sure they forgot us, with 20-30 min between each course...
the refined 5-course tasting is a great value until you see the 10-course. in my top 3 after all these years.
The 10 course tasting was hands down one of the best culinary experiences of my life.
take about 3 hour to finish 10 course tasting menu. The dessert wine is must get.
Def go for tasting menu. 5 course if you're hungry; 10 if you want to get fat.
The 10 course tasting is out of this world. You must try when you come here.
oh.my.word. best dining experience ever - definitely worth splurging on the tasting menu with wine pairing!!!!!!!
Try the seven course menu. It is a little bit pricey but it is totally worth it
Great culinary experience at a reasonable price. Highly recommended.
tapas are only OK...but the torija is out of this world!
Think it's seven course 80$ menu best way to sample great dishes
Lamb loin is the best thing on the menu. Get two.
When you are in NYC make sure you stop by with your honey & have a nice meal. !!
Amazing restaurant - definitely try the chefs tasting
Prawns and scallop which was delicious
