"I have been to Cueva Bar now De Nada Kitchen & Market several times over the past few years but somehow never wrote a review. Going in recently during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic inspired me to do so. Oz is such a wonderful human- kind, funny, and welcoming. The tapas, pizzas are always delicious, the wine and craft beer list is amazing (I never know what to order and Oz always has the best recommendations...), and the hospitality unparalleled. I feel less like I'm at a restaurant and more like I'm being welcomed into someone's home. I also felt very safe and comfortable with health precautions during the pandemic. (Everything was spotlessly clean, great air flow, and socially-distanced.)

Thank you so much Oz for another amazing experience!! We appreciate you a ton and hope to see you again soon."
