Disappointment at Cobras and Matadors

cheesenose Dec 29, 2008 10:27 PM

I'm in LA for the holidays and was excited to check out Cobras and Matadors with the missus and my dear mom. Showed up at 9pm only to discover that many of the dishes were no longer available. They ran out of HALF THE MENU - many of which were what we came for. Even one of the desserts wasn't there!

I've never been to a restaurant where so much of the menu was not available to order - and they were pretty unapologetic about it too. The food we did have was good, but c'mon!

Definitely won't be going back there...

    Try Bar Pinxto or The Bazaar. LA lacks good Spanish food and this is about the best of it.

    C & M is on a downhill slide-BTW, they just had one close on La Brea.

        While not a classic tapas joint you may enjoy Tasca Wine Bar on 3rd near WeHo.
