Great Atmospher + Great Food Presentation = Amazing overall Experience

This place was perfect for my dining experience. My dinner party of three was a great size to ensure we had the chance to try a lot of food and the bill will not make us salty. \r \r people's skirt steak...heavenly\r \r calamar frito...very tasty. I enjoy when there are more of the tentacles than the rings. But the taste more than made up for that minor issue.\r \r Pollo Diablo. With a name that cool, I wa... view more

Horrible Spanish Food

This is, by far, the worst Spanish food that I have ever had the misfortune to eat. The food was not fresh and left much to be desired. The paella was watery and had a layer of liquid that was not fully absorbed by the rice. I have lived in Spain, eaten at Spanish restaurants in the U.S. and this was the WORST paella that I have ever tasted. It had cod and it was clear that they had merely placed the cod on top ... view more

Average Tapas at People

I have been to several Tapas restaurants before and found People Lounge was average. I did think that the goat cheese peppers were good but not great. I would much rather go somewhere like Iberico or Babareeba...more for your money and tastebuds. Wait staff was exceptional and very friendly. One of the food runners was a little surly but other than that, all staff was wonderful and accomodating.

Cool food , Cool Place.

We were seated right away regardless on how super pack this place was on a Saturday night. Great place to people watch and listen to a DJ spin their magic .

For dinner we had the shirt steak, chicken , mussels and scallop tapas . All the dishes were very flavorful and plenty for two pe... view more

Loved the food, great bar scene too!

Went to People on a weekend night with some friends. The place was packed so be sure to make reservations for weekends! The goat cheese stuffed red peppers are not on the menu but our server recommended them as a special. That was the best food I ever had in a Spanish tapas restaurant! The skirtsteak and spicy potatoes were delicious as well. One of my friends who is vegetarien was happy with the non meat choices a... view more

Room to improve

The food was presented well and was flavorful. Granted it is a tapas-style restaurant, but the portions were smallish by those standards. The atmosphere was relaxed. The service gets mixed reviews. For the most part, the servers were moderately attentive, but they did make a mistake and omit part of my order, however, the manager immediately apologized and comped our dessert. In addition a band was playing but a... view more

Great for after-work gatherings...

A few of my friends and I went there during a weekday after work and the overall experience was great. People got thumbs up from all of us. Chicken skewers and the white wine sangria were really good! It was just what we were looking for, the perfect blend of good food and good music on a weekday. Will go back again.

Great Tapas, Great Drinks, Great Ambiance!!

I've eaten at a lot of tapas restaurants in the city, and People is by far the best! The ambiance is great! Romantic on the inside, great for people watching at the outdoor tables. The Effes beer (Turkish) is amazing. Would definitely return!

Absolutly Delicious!

Everything about our night was great! We had a girls night out and I am not that crazy about tapas but it was the best tapas I have EVER had! Everything we tried was just amazing and the server was really nice and helpful in recommending dishes to try. The bread and queso dip was just amazing! I would go back in a heartbeat, no question. Good drink selection too and very reasonably priced.

The place rocks

Cool place dude. The food is excellent. The atmosphere even better. You think you are in Europe, instead of the boring boring Midwest. Gotta have more of these places. I wonder if they have franchises.
