The five of us had a good meal and good service on Saturday night. My favorite was the Queso Frito but we scarfed everything. Don't pass up the sage ice cream if they have it - surprisingly delicious.

You can't be serious, previous reviewer! By far the least over-seasoned tapas experience ever! 3 of us went thru grilled octopus, lamb sliders with blue cheese dressing, flank steak sampler and chorizo platas. There is far more than "garlic" in the air at this place. All unique flavors with no chance for "palate fatigue", that's the beauty of tapas experience.... More

This restaurant smells like garlic and the food is laden with an overwhelming amount of garlic. I like garlic when it tastes good but the amounts of garlic used in their food is sickening. This is also one of those restaurants where the chef does not want diners to have salt or pepper available. When asked for them we were... More

Outstanding meal. Thank you so very much. Your team does a fantastic job. We had 2 small cheese plates, 2 salads and 2 tortillas to start. Boquerones and Funghi were fantastic. Followed by Bistec, Pulpo, Patatas Bravas and Albonigas (steak, octopus, potatoes, lamb meatballs). Who knew we could find such wonderful food only blocks from the house. Keep up the... More

Service is excellent and all dishes were simply perfect: flavors, plating, taste. Their padrones peppers are very typical and well prepared. Garlic shrimp, cod deep dish and sautéed potatoes are to die for. Highly recommended. Rob the waiter from Scotland ads a happy touch to the whole ensemble :) The owner, Gonzalo is as authentic as can be and will... More

While the service was very good we were disappointed with the tapas. Everything seemed to be drowning in spices and/or sauces so the taste of the meats was drowned out. It was a disappointing experience. Sad.

Wow! Have experienced Tapas at "Just a Taste" in foodie Ithaca NY and as far as "Bodega Santiago" in the Fla. Keys. Had to keep asking the waiter to remind sauces/spices in each dish as just reading the menu was not enough, mussels and sauce were unforgettable, celery puree softened the harissa sauce with the lamb chops. Albarino wines excellent,... More

Interesting fare – we ordered 6 plates, of which at least 4 were excellent. The service was excellent, and the ambience quite warm too. Worth a visit if in the area.

Authentic Tapas y Paella from Spain. We work with imported traditional products from Spain and local suppliers to bring Spain closer than you think. Tapas is at the heart of the Pallantia experience, like we do in Spain!!
