    I very much enjoy this restaurant, but I think it important for the waiter to tell you before and when presenting the check that tip has been included. Last time we were there we did not know and ultimately double tipped. I'm not sure I saw on the menu that tip is included.

    We went here after a show at 3pm, so it was quiet. We got some tapas and drinks and they had the perfect menu for that. No cocktails were available at that time, so we had wine. Loved the ambiance and the waiter was friendly but disappeared for long stretches, which was baffling with only a few other tables filled at the restaurant. Overall great food. Wood go back!

    The grilled bread served with the olives was very tasty. The shared paella was generous, more than we could finish, but I would have liked more fish (very small pieces), more shell fish and peas and bell peppers that are often in paellas. The wines were delicious and well priced. Our waiter was OK but he never checked in with us after the paella was served, and I needed to ask for water, which he had given to a single woman at an adjoining table right away.

    Great appetizers! We had steamed mussels, garlic prawns and octopus. The Seafood paella could be better seasoned. It was missing some soul. Good churros as desert. Good value for money.

    Friendly but service was hit and miss. Waiter spilled salad dressing when taking it away and never came back to wipe it up. Wife asked for extra ice 3 times before she got it. Pear confit was excellent, iberico meatballs were good, paella was pretty bland thought the prawns ini it were perfect.

    Mixed experience. Maybe me, because I searched for Tapas and Spanish and these guys appeared. Apparently, more of a Latin:Caribbean fusion thing, definitely not Spanish. Highlights: - shellfish. Great octopus appetizer with a Peruvian-style potato side. Shrimp also very solid, along with the oyster app, although not Spanish or Latin/Caribbean by any measure Lowlights - cheese app: straight out of Safeway. Nothing memorable - paella: shellfish aside, saffron in the rice was lost to safrito, again a victim to the unclear concept - wines: only 1 red and white Spanish option, inexcusable in the sea of great Spanish wines out there - service: inattentive and slow, poor given that the place was not that busy. Had to resort to pouring my own water refill Many better options if you are looking for Spanish tapas

    Grabbed a dinner of tapas before the show at the Geary. Such good flavors! Probably the best Brussels sprouts I have ever had. The ox tail was also exceptional.

    We had tickets to a show at the ACT theater down the street so looking for a place for dinner. Bota had good reviews and we wanted to have Spanish food so it fit the bill. We went on a Saturday night around 5:30pm so it was relatively quiet and our server was very attentive. We had the seafood paella, Brussels sprouts, bacon-wrapped dates, and flank steak special. Then for dessert we had the churros. All the dishes were very good. Admittedly was a little pricey but being in downtown SF it was somewhat expected. We would probably consider coming here again if in the area.

    The meat paella was very good, as were the tapas and salad we ordered. Prices were reasonable given the high quality of the dishes served. Service was excellent as well. We plan to return soon to sample more of the menu.

    Food was pretty good. Strange portion sizes though. Why serve 2 people 3 lamb ribs? Despite being very slow (it was early) service was a little spotty but polite. I’d go here again, but I wouldn’t single this place out for a destination meal. Great spot for a pregame before the theater or an event.

    We started out by ordering tapas and got a couple things on the menu, including the brussels sprouts, octopus, potatoes, and pork. The Brussel sprouts were the table favorite and the octopus was my personal favorite because it was very well done. We ordered the surf and turf paella afterwards and didn’t love the flavor, don’t think it was at the top of the list of paella we’d had. Desserts were good, we got the custard and the almond cake.

    Once we got our food it was great. 1205 arrival. Ordered when server came by. But no food until almost 1pm. One Person in our party had up land before a single tapa arrived and then everything came out at once. Very disappointing especially for a business meal (as everyone was in the restaurant today)

    We were there on a very quiet night between Xmas and New Year, a non theatre night, so service was perfect. . It met our needs perfectly, small plates and tasty. We enjoyed Brussel sprouts and mussels along with red sangria, not too sweet. We will return.

The dishes are served tapas style offering us to share in many different suggestions by the staff. You cannot miss this restaurant!!

    Please taste both the oyster dish and the cannelloni-the oysters are needlessly gimmicky and extremely acidic, the cannelloni was beyond bland and the filling dry in a soup of bechamel. Nice staff but easily need another person or two on the floor. The bar, on a night with two performances across the street, needs at least a bar back if not two bartenders.
