One of the worst lunches I have had in a long time. I thought for the price it was a rip off, would never go back!

I ate there when they first opened. The food was expensive and not good.

Have to agree. We went a few months back and we like tapas generally, but this place was not so good. When I asked if I could have regular water instead of the cucumber-infused that the served, I thought the waiter was going to roll his eyes out of his head. We barely saw him again.

Never been there and never will, but I'm quite sure they will not only survive, they will prosper.

Can anyone name a downtown restaurant that overcharges, abuses patrons, and serves small portions of lousy food that hasn't prospered in downtown?

Can anyone tell me the reason why this is true?

I do not think they will be there long. Also, yes we asked for regular water also and got the same look. It is not a good place. Since the Stanford Pub closed it has been Left at Albequerkee & that place was great, & then it became an Italian restaraunt, which was still pretty good, but now this place is horrible. There are many good places downtown Palo Alto that are reasonably priced for their quality of food, & quanity also, especially for lunch. This place is not good & I do not think they do a good business. I worked downtown PA for 25+ years and ate out for lunch daily. Lots of excellent food.
