My husband and I like Bar Ferdinand for its excellent Tapas. They have a new chef this year and he is great. And after living 7 years on the French Riviera and going to Barcelona monthly...i have had every type of Tapas known to man including Sheep testicles! If i had only known ahead of time! Anyhow, I do agree that the service is a little unorganized but other than that we love it. Not to mention easy street parking.
I would think twice about going to this restaurant
By A Yahoo Contributor, 8/20/06
We went there for dinner last night. In every way, I think the restaurant was sub standard. First we had to make a decision about whether to dine inside or on the patio but the accoustics were so bad in the restaurant, we couldn't make out what the hostess was asking us. So we decided to take a table outside, which was pretty stark and happened to get seated adjacent to the chain smoker who was a patron at the bar ten feet across the make-shift patio. We ordered the pitcher of sangria (good value $12, but bitter tasting) and that came after we got our first tapas dish. I would consider myself a tapas connaisseur. We ordered the seabass (not fresh), the codfish balls (tasted like they were a bit freezer burned), the lentil empanadas (those were okay), the roasted lamb (also okay), the grapefruit salad (nothing special), the churros (good..chocolate sauce not sweet enough) and the apple bread pudding (awful). Although we were immediately struck at how low the price of each dish was, the quality and quantity definitely reflected the cost. Furthermore, it's been my experience that the bread (to dip in sauces) is really good quality at most tapas bars but at Bar Ferdinand, the bread quality was the same as the food quality. Finally, although all the servers were really nice, we must have had six different people serving us. It was difficult to figure out who we could ask to bring us the menu again or to order another drink so we just snagged whoever happened to walk by (all seemed to be in a bit of a frenzy which detracted even more from the ambiance). I would really think twice about going here for good tapas.
