Dinner at Onda

What's the space like? 
Warm hues, chandeliers made of primary-colored wine bottles, sexy Latin background music, (optional) al-fresco sidewalk seating, tropical-chic Zen-like space. 

How was the service?
Friendly, knowledgeable and perfectly paced. 

Did you drink?
As I was still recuperating from Fashion Week parties, I decided to hold off on ordering an alcoholic beverage.  But trust me; with a cocktail menu as attractive as Onda's, I foresee a happy-hour in my near future.  Want a little teaser?  Check out the first drink I that plan to order upon my return: The "Mediterra," made with Svedka vodka, honey syrup, black mission fig puree and fresh lime juice.
What did you order to eat, and how was it?
What's pricing like?
All items on Onda's menu are under $23.  Here's a peak as to what our bill looked like:
Will you return to Onda?
I would love to recruit some friends to join me during Onda's happy hour, where drinks are 2 for 1.  As I stated above, the cocktail menu is lovely and appears to be worthy of the brutal trek from Midtown Manhattan.  Food-wise, I'm not sure how soon or frequent my return visits will be given the restaurant's locale.
