Hands down the best sangria

The drink menu here is ridiculously large and the food menu is scarce but let's face it. We come here for drinks, not cause we're hungry. They have good noshings to share and nibble on but the drinks are what's happening. If you haven't the sangria here, you must put it on the list to try. I've had lots of sangria in my life and they make it the best here. Perfect drink for a sunny day. Crowded on the weekends and dinner time but if u have the patience to wait, the drinks and tapas and fun atmosphere are worth it. Be warned, it gets loud!

Yes, this place gets crowded and maybe the seating isn't as quick as one would hope, but the the food was amazing. The ingredients are SO fresh. The steak was cooked perfectly. The rose whipped cream was heavenly. The portions are small, but really tasty. I remember the Sangria being pretty good, not great but nothing to complain about. I love this place.

Nice food, small selection

Menu is a bit sparse as are the portions but this place does deliver good food. We had the tilapia (very nice and tender perfectly battered) and the pork skewers. Fries were a nice portion! (understatement) and wine selection was great. Service is good and the place sat us immediately however was hoping to get a bit more flavor out of it. Would like to try again an write an update

Oh, those sea-salt herb fries!

Sure, Cesar has tasty tapas and bocadillos, featuring top-notch charcuterie, anchovies, cheeses, and other delectable morsels. It is also true that Cesar makes a mean cocktail (french apple sour = yum and not too sweet). However, in all honesty, what keeps me coming back are the fried potatoes with herbs and sea salt: a glorious mountain of thin, crispy fries sprinkled with toasted fresh sage and other herbs. Seriously yum.

watch out for hair

i went on a monday evening (5pm) and it was somewhat busy. the drink i ordered came with hair floating in it, the waiter replaced it. then our food came and it was good. we had almost finished the plate of potatoes when we noticed a very long curly blonde hair ALL MIXED UP IN THE FOOD. it was gross. hair in 2 separate items prepared by 2 different people.

If you're looking for something thats tasty after dinner, and you don't want to go to chez penisse, stop by here. Very good.

Chic place. Food could be better.

The place is pretty hip with nice designs and a nice bar. Unfortunately, we didn't really like that many of the dishes. The potato straw thing that they keep bragging about was not that great. It's pretty much like greasy potato chips. One item we liked was this shrimp dish with a nice sauce. Everything else was a little greasy and not that refreshing.\r <br>\r <br>They have a good Spanish wine selection. The place is pretty cramped, and pretty loud. It's basically a concrete box with 75 people stuffed into it. The service was decent. I actually can't remember if it was good or bad so it must have been acceptable. :p\r <br>\r

Nice cocktails, expensive food and drink

Too expensive for the small portions. The food is good, cocktails are great but expect to pay a lot for little. There definately better choices.

I don't get it

I wish someone would say the emperor has no clothes. Cesar is overrated. Why do people want to wait in line for overpriced mediocre food? Especially when there are so many choices for good food, good atmosphere, good service and good prices. Cesar is not worth the crowd or the money! The patatas bravas are all wrong. Go to most any other Spanish restaurant for &quot;&quot;real&quot;&quot; patatas bravas like they serve them in Spain.

Great Night Out

If you're looking for great food and equally great drinks, Cesars is the place. Yes, they are small dishes, but this is what tapas are! All are excellently prepared and very flavorful. The service has always been great and the servers are well informed. Fantastic wine list, something for everyone. It's a good place to begin your evening for appetizers and drinks. I haven't been disappointed yet.
