Buceo 95

Buceo 95
Upper West Side
Don’t count on the slow, blasé servers to help you navigate the two-page wine list or short tapas menu at this butter-hued UWS joint. A silver-haired crowd loiters over middling plates like gluey ham, cheese and mushroom croquettes paired with a junky pimento aioli. Intriguingly tangy red and golden beets showed a glimpse of promise thanks to slivers of brisk Valdéon blue cheese, but desserts—unremarkable chocolate empanadas—disappointed. You’d be better off drinking your calories with port or sherry.

Either this review is staggeringly unfair or they have improved a lot in three years. I visited here twice, Fall 2012 and January 2013, and found it outstanding on both occasions. Flavorsome food, friendly service, excellent value. You really should go back.
