we went and had a wonderful meal and drinks, great selections of tapas and desserts, Almond cake was great and the wait staff are dry humor but fun.

I've been here a few times for either happy hour or dinner on Saturday. Every time I go the tapas dishes are usually pretty good but the bar and wait staff tend to be rude and give the impression that they really don't care about you being there. I don't understand that considering that most other places around there have staff that is pretty laid back. Anyway, I doubt I'll go back since it's not worth it to me anymore.

Overpriced, inauthentic and rude service. We ordered cheese, served weeks past its prime, presented as if it came out of cheap cafeteria. The jerez was weak. Tapas was only marginally better. Inexcusable.

Everytime I go there I have an amazing time. The food is really good, I mean I'm picky so if I say that I love it I mean it. The atmosphere is very nice, great place to bring a date or a big group of friends, they always play good music and the staff is usually friendly. I totally recommend it !!

Went to 1492 twice with big groups of clients twice in the last month and was very disapointed. the food is decent if not incredible but after two poor experiences i will not be back. the first time the heater was broken and when i asked the waitress about the problem she told our party that the problem was being fixed as we spoke. it never was, and my clients ate dinner in there scarves and hats. i tried again, and this time, two weeks later, had a waitress who had no idea about the food. the whole unprofessional vibe at the cost is really not worth the trip

Went here last night with a group of 9 or so people. The sangria was just OK. The food was subpar, to say the least. I ordered the chorizo lollipops which I was excited about from other reviews...not so much. The chorizo was extremely low quality like it had been taken out of a plastic zip lock bag from the grocery store. I also ordered the porcini mushroom croquettes, but oddly I received ridiculously garlicky sauteed mushrooms...like the kind from a can. My friend ordered the warm seafood salad which was also subpar and consisted of a bagged salad mix and three shrimps. While the polite waiter was exceedingly attractive and accented, he seemed to have trouble figuring out what we ordered. One other thing to mention is that if you are dining in the rustic back room, watch out for dripping condensation from the skylights above you. I've had much better tapas at El Cid and Barna which are a tremendously better value.

We have been here a couple times the last week and we love it. Although the service is a little spotty, the food is great with all the great Spanish tapas staples. Try the chorizo lollipops, they are amazing! Also the chorizo pizza, oysters, albondigas and pantumacat, all amazing! For dessert, we had the shocolate souffle which was to die for.
