Delicious

Stopped in for some tapas after our trip to Barcelona--wonderful bites to eat. Service was great, food was great. We will be back for sure!

My friend and I went to this place on Saturday night around 8 p.m. Even though the place was small, we were able to be seated right away (the place got crowded after 9 p.m. though so I would suggest going there early.) I like Tapas style restaurant as we get to try different dishes. Everything was good but I would not say amazing... I do want to come back here to try different dishes though. I did like the se... view more

Best tapas in town

This is my new favorite place in town. A friend and I go weekly for sangria and the croquettas. Seriously, I dream about the croquettas. The flavors are wonderful and the service is friendly. Ask the waitress what her favorite dishes are on the menu to help you out on your first visit. Can be pricey as you'll want to try every dish.

A nice, tasty deviation from the norm. But only once in awhile due to the price

Some coworkers and I went there this past Tues. night. I'd passed by on many occasions and have been meaning to go in for quite some time. Anyways it was a tapas place so I was semi prepared mentally to pay a lot for not a lot of food. My only reservation, which was why it probably took me so long to go, was whether or not the food would be good. Here in LA, great reviews of horrible tasting food are a dime a doz... view more

Great tapas, good service!

I'm surprised to read so many bad reviews here. I went last Friday with my boyfriend and we had a great experience. We walked in at the right time and got 2 seats at the bar right away. The place was packed and atmosphere was very nice. We sat in front of the pig leg, which was weird for a minute, but then I got over it...after all, that really is how they display meats in Spain! As for the person who said it wa... view more

If this is good tapas, I rather be gored by the bul.

My wife and I have been hooked on tapas since our trip to Spain in 97. But a good unpretentious tapas place in LA is hard to come by. We went to this place when it was first reviewed by LA Time and was giving flying colors. Now, maybe some one can clear this up for me. In Madrid and Andalucia, I never encountered tapas on top of the bread. I just returned from Barcelona, since the last time I was there, there were no... view more

They Serve Foie Gras: And They Should Stop

I'm a local Venice/Santa Monica resident and at first I liked Bar Pinxto. Until I noticed that they serve Foie Gras, which is a 'delicacy' created by torturing geese by force feeding them with a medal feeding tube that causes regurgitation, painful lacerations, organ failure, lung failure, and sometimes the explosion of internal organs. These birds are kept heavily confined, force feed, and die long painful deaths. A... view more

I wish I had read about it before commiting to it...

I will have to get back to you all and let you know how it goes tonight. I am invited to a dinner there for a women's wine group and I hope it is better than I have read. I'll let you know later. I gave it an average rating since I have not been there yet. We will see how it goes. Wish me luck!

Not worth the stop, keep walking.

I've walked by this place several times, so last night my boyfriend and I decided to give it a try. Considering it was a Saturday night it wasn't very crowded, now we know why. We got a seat at their ""sushi bar"" and had a slab of meat sitting in front of us, and an egg dish sitting out on an open platter. To our disgust, the chef was actually using this food that was within sneezing distance of us to serve other... view more

Best Tapas in Town

For the reviews that are posted with low ratings, must have been in the wrong restaurant. This place is wonderful. The food and ingredients are fresh and fantastic. The choices of wine are delectable and the pairing with the food is hard to beat. Go to this place to have a fun and enjoy a nice evening with friends and maybe even meet some new ones.
