    Can't believe it took me so long to eat here! The food was divine & service was lovely. Caipirinha amuse bouche is a delightful way to start the meal. Definitely get the sea urchin toast & duck rice!

    Open kitchen counter added to an outstanding Portuguese cuisine experience. The four course prix-fixe seasonal menu was well worth the $79 price tag.

    The sea urchin toast, shrimp, and fried octopus are incredible. For dessert, the carrot cake is the way to go. Sitting by the kitchen is also wonderful.

    Came here for dinner and sat right in front of the kitchen to see the meals being prepared. Liked the ambiance - good for dates (not loud). Best dishes - cod croquettes, spanish octopus, duck.

    Superb food. Snag the chef's counter at the back for a good view of the buzzy kitchen. We loved the beautiful green and white asparagus with hen egg & black truffle ($13). En savoir plus

    Get the prix fixe menu--it'll come with all manner of little tasty bits from the chef. Nice Iberian influence in the menu.

    Get a table at the back so you can see the open kitchen. The Spanish octopus and Mussel soup were amazing first courses. Nice sommelier, she recommended some very good wines.

    This place has a michelin star and it's well deserved. Reasonably priced compared to other fancy restaurants. Get the 4 courses. Uni toast is a must.

    The lunch menu ranges from an affordable ham sandwich (with piquillo peppers) to a pricier dish of scallops, and the dinner menu is only slightly more elevated. En savoir plus

    Beautiful space, with airy design. Cool cocktails (the huntress) and friendly bartenders. Fantastic original choices on the menu: artsy salads, clams with foam, goat, shrimp/saffron. All good!

    Enjoy Chef George Mendes’ Iberian-inflected creations. The dining counter overlooking the master at work is perfect for a solo bite while the second floor dining room is great for a group. -Inspector

    When I eat here I have to have the suckling pig. I come from a farm, and I've eaten a lot of suckling pig in my life, but Chef Mendes fragments the pig in different textures.

    This place took forever--4 hours for dinner! It was all delicious except the pork entree, which was boring. My favorite was the cake with peanuts

    The arroz de pato is rightly popular, possibly even addictive. Also try suckling pig, clams, & spicy chocolate tart. – Green Guide Editor

    Listen, the duck rice is as good as everyone says it is, but the rest of the menu is wonderful. Order a rice for the table and then go to down on everything else. Oysters, lomo ham, pork belly, etc.

    Nice ambiance but would not return here. The menu is unique in that almost everything is pork! I'm slightly exaggerating. The portions are tiny, especially for the cost of an entree. Taste=strange

    Very good food & wine - esp the Rioja. Really nice ambiance. On the other hand, my business client and I were treated very rudely by the manager. I don't think I'd ever go there again because of her.
