Living down the block from this relative newcomer I must say that the large crowds turned me off. I assumed that it was probably overhyped...Its nice to be wrong sometimes...I was dragged there on an ordinary wednesday night because there were tables open...From there on everything worked well...Nice Spanish wine...We got the filet off the menu and the halibat special...both were excellent...The halibut was greatly enhanced by a nice reduction sauce served atop spinach and lentils...the steak came with a little vegetable pastry thing...the only thing pretty mediocre was the uh...platanos...oh well...we also got the passion fruit cheesecakc...mmmm...all in all a good experience...I like the understated decor and the big server was nice despite having a puported bad night...
