This is the most pleasant place for a glass of wine and some tapas. The dishes are small but flavorful. The calamari is tender, the serrano ham crispy. I like the dark bar in the winter and the outdoor space in the nice weather. It's such a low-key place, you can get a table on a weekend night. It's a neglected treasure in the neighborhood.

Went to 1492 with a party of 8 for my birthday and were seated in their outdoor/GARAGE area where no other tables were set up! It was more cold in there than it was outside! Service was poor b/c they knew they'd receive the 20% automatic gratuity for parties over 6. Drinks were NOT good at all, had to be sent back numerous times. The only decent part was the food, which was delicious, but very small tapas. I don't think I'll be headed back anytime soon.

The food there tasted outstanding. I had the fried calamaries which were amazing. There are many appetizers to select, but only two main courses to choose from. It seem as though they specialized or conscentrate on cooking grilled rib eye steak, because it was cooked to perfection. The desserts we had were okay. The place was empty so we had the waitress to ourself. She was extremely attentive to our needs and knowledgeable of the menu. The music was at a decent volume. I will definitely go again.

The loud music and lack of costumers should say it all. The music was annoyinly loud, so loud we had to scream for the 2 hours i was there. And believe me the screaming did not make the food any better. I had the paella. The rice was too wet, sticky and it lacked flavor. The chicken was dry and it felt old. The steak was the only meal that was acceptable. After spending almost $300 for four people i was very disapointed w/ a sore throat and ready to leave. I will never visit again and i would never recomend this restaurant to anyone!!

Service was slow. It took 15 mins to even get our waitress to ackowledge us. Food was very ordinary and not worth the money. Atmosphere was dingy. Would not reccomend

I used to frequent 1492 for its great food but the quality has gotten progressively worse. On my last visit, the fried calamari had the consistency of rubber on the inside and mush on the outside. We were also served a salad that had no flavor whatsoever. Unless there's a shakedown in the kitchen, I won't be visiting again.

had a great valentine's dinner here with my boyfriend. adorable place with lots of candlelight. we shared the vegetables in truffle oil (delicious!), the tortilla espanol (very authentic!! felt like i was back in sevilla), seafood paella (calamari perfectly cooked) and garlic shrimp (very good). looking forward to visiting again!
