Need help - can't think of a name for a new place in Santa Monica!

I know there's a new wine / tapas type place in Santa Monica on Wilshire (closer to 14th street I think), but can NOT for the life of me remember the name of it (arghhhhh!).

If you know it, can you pass it along and let me know if you've 1) been, and 2) recommend it?

Thanks all!

      THANK YOU! Just googled it and it's exactly what I was thinking! Have you been? Is it any good?

      It's very good but VERY LOUD. You'll see.

        Thanks all... went the other night and loved it! Food was yummy and the wine was good! Not that loud - and I hear they are working on the acoustics to fix the problem, but overall, would totally recommend this place to others! I think my husband and I are going to make it our weeknight dinner stop at the bar!

          Is there a bar area or is just sit-down table seating?

            Both - the bar is small (big enough to sit at and have a meal though). It's not a large place which is what I like about it, and everyone was super friendly!

            Also - they have "communal" tables big enough to seat 8 people, so if you get there early enough without a reservation they can accomodate a rather large party, which I also liked.

            Give it a shot and let me know what you think!
