Re: “Extra Virgin

Very disappointing. I have been to several tapas restaurants and sizes of the dishes here were smaller than I have ever had. Started with CRAB STUFFED PIQUILLO PEPPERS, I expected some heat form the pepper and there was none and I couldn't taste the crab at all. Next, CRISPY PIG EAR SALAD was very good. The ears were tasty and juicy. Next, GRILLED BABY OCTOPUS: The octopus was BURNT! The dish had no depth of flavor, very bland. Next, CHORIZO & FIG FILLED CHICKEN THIGHS: Hardly any chorizo in the dish and couldn't taste ANY fig. For desert, PEACH CROSTADA was BURNT too! After getting another, it wasn't any better than a peach cobbler I could buy at the store. CHURROS & CHOCOLATE was no better than what I can get at Taco Bell.

Re: “La Bodega

i really wanted to like this place. the group of friends that went there last thursday meet once a month for drinks and dinner. there are varying numbers and so we always make reservations. it's apparently their policy not to seat those whose parties are not complete. even when you have reservations, even when their restaurant is empty and there is no discussing with the g.m. any variance from that policy. even when we're talking a party of 10-15 and there is no seating for these patrons at the bar. one of our group needed to get in and get out in 45 minutes. we asked if perhaps he and another could get seated just for this reason. let the others get seated later. nothing doing. their g.m. doesn't have the skills required of a person in his position. some of us left without being served and others stayed. apparently the wait staff was good but it's tough to make up for bad management. my understanding is that tapas bars are intended to be a place that friends can come and go and share the time they have together. especially when your tapas bar stays mostly empty all night. we went on to the bluestem and had great service and good food.
