If you believe that less is more, then this is the place for you. Recently, our party of 7 had dinner in the dining room. Two members of our party ordered the scallops which were a special of the day. For $31 they each received 2 scallops as well as an equally skimpy portion of vegetables - the food looked lost on the large dinner plate - it looked like a tapas plate, not a dinner portion. The only good thing that can be said is that both individuals thought it was delicious, if not filling. Two more members of the group ordered the hanger steak from the $35 prix-fixe menu. I am very aware that portions on a price fixed menu are typically somewhat smaller than when ordering a la carte, but a portion of steak which is no more than 3 or 4 ounces is absurd - and it was served less than luke-warm. We eat out quite often, and this is the first time in many years that I have left a restaurant hungry. We definitely will not be back.

If you believe less is more, then this is the place for you. We had dinner in the dining room (party of seven) but the portions made us think we were in the tapas lounge. Two members of our party ordered scallops (the fish special) and for $31 had a dinner plate placed before them with 2 scallops on it along with an equally sparse portion of vegetables. The only bright side was that what there was of a portion was very good, if not very filling. Another two persons ordered hanger steak from the $35 prix-fixe menu. Not only was the steak cold and tough, but a portion consisted of 4 or 5 little pieces that couldn't have been more than 3 or 4 ounces. This was probably the worst meal and value that I have had in the last 30 years.

one of the best meals to be had in nyc. upstairs dining room is the place to enjoy josh dechellis inventive explode in your mouth cooking. intelligently selected wines from all over the globe (something for every mood and everyones palate). lastly, there is a nice amount of space between tables so your conversation is not intrusive to other patrons. this is truly a fabulous secret for the time being

Had a great dinner here recently. It was a hot summer night, and not a Thursday or Friday, so this place had fewer patrons than all of the places in the MetLife building that have outdoor spaces. I say good! And once I was in I was very pleased with the atmosphere (mid-century cool in the tapas bar area, banquette chic with Spanish photos on the wall for the dining room.) The service was very good, as was the Mojito (Brazilian style) I had from the bar. But the real deal is the food. This did not disappoint. The tapas are contemporary Spanish, so don't just expect favorites like Manchego and Serrano Ham with olives. Pick anything, you can't go wrong. It was all delicious. As a bonus - based on my visits to other bars in the Station this one has the best priced, and maybe best prepared cocktails. $9.5 VS. $11-12. Not cheap, sure, but less expensive. I plan to go back.

Every bite was delectable from olive rolls to dessert. Only disappointment was the glass of too-sweet sangria and the absence of pitchers of "proper" red sangria to go with our meal. Noise level in tapas section is unbearable. Sit upstairs as far back as possible.

Went here for our annv and got great service and equally good food. The tuna tacos are great and so are the empenadas. Little pricey but great for a special occasion!
