We waited a long time even after making reservation a week before. And after we were seated, we waited a while too before the waiter came and gave us the menu. Food was decent. Nice ambiance.

Fun atmosphere...food is almost like tapas, but it's single-portion sized. Fun place to try, but it's a tad overhyped.
