    Delicious Mediterranean food and great wine list.

    Green eggs and lamb is great brunch.

    Best tapas I’ve had in New York and the ambiance is amazing. Get there early or you’ll struggle getting a table. Wait on weekends can be up to 1hr or more sometimes.

    I do like it here, but both times the lamb was overcooked. The breakfasts seem to be a hit. At night crowds are in the middle of sidewalk which is so rude & annoying. A little too-too for FtGreen

    Steak tapa is delish. The artichoke app is BAD. Didn't love the goat cheese either.

    If you're there for dinner, do it tapas style. Definitely go for the lamb meatballs

    I'm not a vegan, but vegan food can taste delicious. THIS PAELLA WAS VEGAN AND DELICIOUS. Setting is gentle and has similar emotion to southern Spain. My new favorite neighborhood spot💥😀

    Get the fried olives! So delicious. Also, the dips with endives and pita. Reasonable prices, and such a beautiful space too — can't wait to come back during the day.

    This place really is incredible. Get the paella. All of them look amazing, the seafood one we had was fantastic. To start get the octopus, haloumi special and Greek potatoes (patatas braces with feta)

    Wow. This place impressed the hell outta me. Halloumi was delicious, oysters were perfect, and the paella was very nicely portioned for 2 people. Would definitely come back here.

    Amazing atmosphere and amazing food. Truly a gem, would go back multiple times. The artichoke dish was amazing, as was the beef meatballs, however everything was delicious and service was great.

    The food is great but the service is awful. Every time I go here the hostess gives me so much attitude. Thanks but no thanks.

    Great place for tapas! In love with the almond stuffed bacon wrapped dates! Lamb meatballs and trio are great! Come prepared as there is always waiting time and service is slow

    This place was a tapas haven. Amazing food and delicious sangria. The only thing that was just OK was the falafel crusted artichoke.

    Best happy hour on the planet. Red sangria, romesco, fried chickpeas, falafel-crusted artichokes, and Spanish pitza are required.

    Amazing sandwiches, they are served with patatas bravas, which sets the sandwich apart from other sandwich places. Get a seat outside on a sunny day to enjoy the neighborhood

    Went here on a date for dinner. Was a little disappointed in their vegetarian options. However I ordered the farro pasta and was in love.

    It's small, but if you go at an off-peak hour with your friends, the more tapas you'll be able to order. Can't go wrong with anything there!

    The shrimp with french sauce, bacon wrapped almonds, haloumi all great. Everything is very extravagant and rich flavors. Nice with a bottle of wine. Go slow..order one or two dishes at a time.
