Unique and tasty offerings for tapas and drinks. Portions are relatively small, so in my opinion, not great for a hungry lunch date unless you want to spend $70+ per person. Smallish, trendy restaurant on the embarcadero near the water. Reservations specify dining room or at the bar (watching the food creatives) - they're in the same room. The restaurant is smallish, so I understand why it's best to book your space if possible. We were pleased with the attentive wait staff. My one regret is that we didn't have time to order the $45 paella (extra time prep). I'd recommend, but just know what to expect!

What a great find on a beautiful sunny day in San Francisco! No need to fly to Madrid to have excellent tapas, hot or cold in San Francisco, in addition to excellent service.

Are you looking for a Bloody Mary to start your Sunday Funday? The beverage was just excellent, made from scratch, with the sufficient amount of heat and excellent flavor! Multiple course of enjoyment complimented with excellent service and pairings; Boquerones White anchovie, campo real olives, pearl onion and piparra pepper, Chorizo roasted artichoke and piquillo pepper, Manchego jamónserranoandapricot-sherryconserva, Tortilla de Espinacas spinach tortilla with caña de cabra, raisin and pinenut, Huevos de Codorniz Quail egg “Diablo”, pickled mustard seed and jamón Serrano, followed with Huevos de Codorniz Quail egg “Diablo”, pickled mustard seed and jamón Serrano potatoes, bravas salsa and garlic alioli, Croquetas de Pollo Chicharron crusted Chicken and English pea croquetas with cured seasonal citrus, Albóndigas a la Feria duck and pork meatballs with tartcherry-tempranillosalsaandcrispyshallot, Pimientos de Padrón padrÓn peppers with Jamón Serrano and sherry vinegar.

Thank you Joshua for making our last day of vacation excellent! We will be back with our kids for additional enjoyment!

The tapas served were quite delicious. There are plenty for any taste and any diet. The charcuterie platter is a good choice to start with accompanied with wine to be selected from a large variety of selections. Pleasant ambiance and perfect location. Not cheap but in SF nothing is cheap. Worth a try...

This is a great waterfront restaurant that offers fabulous cocktails and delicious tapas. We were seated at the bar area, great for watching the kitchen, and had a mojito and a margarita. Both were very fresh and tasty. Then shared a bottle of rose with our tapas. We had the deviled eggs, meatballs, shrimp, and eggplant. All were very fresh and flavorful. Each arrived separately so we were able to enjoy a nice relaxing lunch. Definitely will be back.

We stumbled upon this place a few years ago on a quick trip to San Francisco—after visiting science museum. It’s on the embarcadero & very casual with some open air communal tables out front & little screened in attached bar + indoor restaurant. The bar/outdoor tables are first come first serve & restaurant takes reservations. It is the perfect place to grab a cocktail & some tapas. Also they have pitchers of sangria or pitchers of cocktails. Their drinks are fantastic! Love their gin& tonic, had a lemon based drink (forget name ) with fennel & sugar rim that’s also amazing. Their tapas are always so delicious —we were there yesterday & had duck meatballs, Iberico ham, homemade potatoe chips with manchego cheese & tarragon vinegar + fried kale salad with english pea dressing. YUM. Presentation is very nice & always great service. We’ve been here approximately 5-6 times—we try to get there every time we visit SF & every single time its been a perfect combo of unique upscale casual food & drinks. GO!
