The food was excellent. We sat next to a very boisterous large party and it was impossible to hear each other at our table for 3. Service was spotty. Got served quickly but getting check and mid dinner attention was slow. Overall a good experience.

Food was scrumptious. The lamb spareribs had a little crisp on the outside but so tender. I also enjoyed The Chilean sea bass. I will be going back.

Food is good as usual, comes out hot and prompt. Service was excellent. Very good wine list with many at reasonable price points. It's been a while since I was here last since there are so many restaurants in town - and some decline in time unfortunately; not the case here. As far as tapas goes, this is my favorite. Will definitely be back again.

I love everything about this restaurant. The decor, the vibe, the seating, the menu, the wine list. I’m gluten-free so they have lots of good choices for me. A nice variety on the menu. Staff is super friendly and efficient. Outdoor patio it’s really nice when the weather is good. Prices are reasonable.

Outstanding meal and experience we celebrated our 6th year anniversary. Our server did a phenomenal job and even brought us a desert to celebrate. We are not from Atlanta and live in Tampa but this place made us feel as though we were home

Food, wine and service was great!! Noise level was unbearable!! Maybe they have outside seating. If so, we’ll go back when the weather is warmer and sit outside. You can at least carry on your own conversation on a patio.

Miserable person at front desk.
Miserable waiter.
Brought me a Horiatiki salad with goat cheese....invoiced me a Gypsy salad I just noticed.
Threw everything on the table at once.

PATHETIC WAITER SPOILS THE EVENING.

I am a regular patron at this restaurant, at least 3 times a month and will return.

We consistently have a good meal here. The wait staff has been friendly and competent every time as well.
Parking isn’t too difficult with the parking deck, although you may not score a spot in front of the restaurant and have a short walk.

The overall experience was good but could have been amazing if the service was better. This was my third time at the restaurant and second time for my partner. We invited a couple for a double date. The food and ambiance was truly amazing however the waiter's service and level of having a sense of urgency was extremely poor. His personality and attitude was of someone who shouldn't serve people. His lack of enthusiasm for the menu and recommendations were dry. I would recommend to train your servers to have a warm and friendly attitude. Also, they should have a sound method of checking on their tables every so often to ensure there aren't additional needs. I am only bringing this to the attention of the restaurant management because I truly believe this restaurant is a hidden jewel and that added coaching of the server staff can take a customer's experience from good to WOW!

The service was awful! Our waiter was inattentive and extremely awkward, our water glasses were empty for 10 mins at a time. The food was not that great either. Very small portions, even for tapas. I will stick with Barcelona Wine Bar, about the same price point with better service and better food quality and quantity!

Under the Cork Tree is fast becoming one of my "go-to" restaurants. I have always had a great experience here. The tapas are creative and well done, and they have a very interesting wine list. Service is good but some servers do seem to be better trained/more experienced than others.

I was really excited to try the UTCT - all my friends raved about the spicy lamb ribs, totally over rated! I was disappointed because they were swimming in the bbq sauce. Also, the artichoke hearts again, were swimming in the sauce - totally unnecessary! Great wine and cocktail list, waiter cracked a smile once.
