  • "I went on a Friday night for the dinner and show. They offered a good selection of hot and cold tapas as well as a good Spanish dinner menu. The show was a very good Flamenco show and after the show they had Salsa lessons. The dance floor was packed with people learning the dance and having a very good time."

  • "we've been here before & it's always interesting. we don't like crowds so we avoid the flamenco/salsa nights but i'm sure it's good. this evening we had a young adults lessons going on & it was fun to watch, and not noisy! the food flavors are always good. this evening the meat was a little overcooked & the veggies were under cooked. not the usual for here. the pork dishes & the skirt steak are really good. we've never tried the seafood."

  • "My girl and I had lots of fun beginning with the flamenco show and then having dinner and finishing it off with dancing and to top it all off it was a live salsa band!!!! Awesome experience!!"

  • "We went on a Saturday night to see the Flamenco Show. The show was great. The dancers we fantastic and the guitar players we even better. The restaurant was fair. The food was poor. The service was non-existent. The salsa lessons could have been great if they had organized who could and couldn't participate better. You need to buy a ticket for the salsa lesson when you come for the show, but no one tells you. By the time you find out, you've already missed part of the lesson. My advice...go for the flamenco show and have some drinks. Everything else will be a disappointment."

  • "Before I mention the negatives, I will start with the positives: 1. The Flamenco Show was very fun to watch and 2. The Sangria was delicious. The negatives: The food was very poor. I ordered pasta with chicken, the pasta was way overcooked and the chicken was dry even with the alfredo sauce. Someone else at my table ordered pasta with salmon and they also go overcooked pasta and a bland flavor. It's way overpriced for the quality of food we received."

  • "Took 4 out of town colleagues there and we ordered a the house paella and several tapas items. Great way to debrief after a long day and have a casual dining experience. There were only a few other tables full so we had a quiet spot."

  • "I was very disappointed at the service provided. Our food arrived 1 1/2 late and our food dishes did not arrive at the same time. I had to sit and wait for another 10 to 12 minutes while everyone else's food came out. The food was not warm either. Our waitress lumped everyone on the same check and didn't itemize our drinks. We couldn't tell how much to pay towards the bill. We never got our birthday dessert either. When I made the reservation I specifically said it was a birthday celebration and I was told the waiters would be asked to do something. Nothing was done, the birthday person was never acknowledged and nothing was done to compensate for our food having been served so late! The service was terrible."

  • "They opened 10 minutes late. The host was not welcoming and walked us to a table in middle of the dining room and dropped menus and walked away. It was so dark we needed flashlight to read menu. When asking waitress what she recommended she pointed to the sampler platter. Portions were small, was not hot and the aoli was as thick as toothpaste and almost no flavor. Our guess is it was just mayonnaise. After 2-1/2 hours we tried to get the check, this took 25 min. This place has so many problems it's hard to know where to start. Just drive past and enjoy a happy meal...!"

  • "The food was pretty good. I was afraid to go when I read some pretty bad reviews on Yelp, so… I was pleasantly surprised with the taste and quality. It's a bit on the expensive side for what you get food-wise. However, you need to realize that you are also paying for great Spanish music and dance performances! The singer was excellent!! After the performance, we danced salsa and other Latin rhythms. I liked music selection! My friends, my husband and I had a great time!"

  • "Paella was just okay, not nearly as delectable as explained in the reviews. Sides were below expectation. Drinks and flamenco dancer saved the experience."

  • "Food took an hour to arrive and drinks were left bone dry far too long between refills. Food was mediocre and definitely not worth the wait. The dancing and entertainment are great but I'd eat elsewhere first."
