    From the time of arriver the service was outstanding. There was only one person serving and he greeted with a smile and gave outstanding service. They were pretty busy, he kept up with every table from what I could see. The food was outstanding came out hot nothing had to be sent back. everyone at my table was very satified with the food and service that we received.

    Appears to have formerly been a residence converted to a restaurant, so the facility is very intimate. We sat outside and enjoyed the perfect august evening weather, the deck where we sat was only about 2 stories high so while we were able to enjoy the open sky it’s not a city view. Servers were very attentive, and courteous. We never had to wait long or compete for their attention if we needed something. We lived primarily on the Tapas side of the menu and loved every dish we tried (lamb ribs, cauliflower, quinoa tabuleah, empanadas). We absolutely loved the food I would place it on par with or above in some cases places like Barcelona, Iberian, gipsy kitchen) I also had an incredible cocktail which I can’t remember the name of but if you’re looking at the top right corner of the drink menu it’s first one … made with honey bourbon.

    Really good food. Ordered the red snapper special and everything was well seasoned. My friend says his grilled whole fish was a bit too charred for his liking. The young lady who served us was attentive and friendly enough. Very good space to chill and have a conversation since it’s not too loud outside. Complimentary valet was appreciated.

    This is a place where I bring people for the good food and the amazing patio seating. Also, the service is great. This time we were over 10 people, they valued out request to seat us outside although it was busy and took care of us in an amazing way with great amount of attention to all details. As usually - amazing experience. The drinks are also good and they have some of the great Italian wines as well.

    We went for Fathers Day 2022 brunch. It was advertised that they would have the full brunch menu, but instead it was a very small buffet with very mediocre food. It was $48 per person and wasn’t worth it at all. They stated they were having staffing issues, so I do understand that. However it was still disappointing for a restaurant we used to really enjoy.
