I was really, really, (I mean that really twice) wanted to like this place. I made reservations twice andcoyld not make it. Something was keeping me from going there, that's why I believed that when I finally arrived, that it would be so delicious and out of this world, that words could simply not describe it. What a DISASTER, DISAPPOINTMENT, I almost cried. We been to several tapas locations and this although in a great area is by far the worst food we've ever tasted. First of all let me tell you that our server was great and the service was pretty good. Now for number two, second, the food itself was terrible. We started with the pork pancetta, pork belly, it tasted like glazed ham, not impressed. Next we had the patatas bravas. No floor at all, I mean not one smidge of flavor on the sauce or even the aioli. I had to drizzle a ton of salt to make it edible. Next came the short rib flatbread, again not impressed. The short rib could of been so much more. Not impressed. We opted for our next tapas and ordered of all things the chicken empanadas. The best of all the dishes. If all their tapas were as flavorful as the enpanas, winner winner. The drinks were pretty decent but overpriced for what I got. The sangria, they can keep. I've tasted better from a Walgreens bottle. The Nutella dessert looked like the restaurant had left over pieces of dark cookies and cake layers and just threw it in a plate. Will I ever go back, Not even for free. If you want to compare asome good tapas, start with La Parra, then Rustico, and finally Jaleo, the best for last. I guarantee you'll never go back to el tapeo. I know we never will. Wish we could get our money back.
