Great service and selections
We went to Cova last Friday evening for wine and tapas, after purchasing a discount gift certificate on restaurantsdotcom. We were not disappointed. We each enjoyed a different wine flight (a selection of 3 different specifically paired wine tastes - 2 oz. each) and several tapas/raciones. The cheeses we selected were fantastically unique, and the meats served to accompany the cheeses were delicious. The seared tuna with avocado salad was fantastic, as was the red pepper pizza. We had no problem getting refills on bread with the meat/cheese plate, water, etc. What we didn't have was a table big enough to hold all our plates and glasses! Our server was friendly, perfectly attentive, and she applied our gift certificate to our bill with no additional delays. I saved the menu to locate some of our choices at Specs for home entertaining. We will definitely return.
