    We had an excellent dinner. We were able share the plantain appetizer of and the entree of seafood paella. The drinks were great, too. A Cuervo Margarita and a Mojito. It wasn’t crowded so the service was great. Beautiful artwork on the walls.

    Food was okay. Nothing special. Margaritas were flat. Did not taste like they were made fresh. Overall— just okay

    Menu says they can accommodate requests but when we tried to order the taco salad without the taco shell, the waiter side that could not be done. There was no similar salad on the menu so my daughter ordered something else. My husband got the taco salad and the beef was grizzly and unappetizing. I ordered the mussels and they were over cooked. Generally an off night but it was a Tuesday so I’d probably try it again as the staff was friendly & attentive and the setting quaint.

    Our appetizers, sangria and entrees were all quite tasty. The server was wonderful and it was a great place to bring our out-of-town guest.

    Our server was delightful, helpful not intrusive. Food was delicious- 4 star because the chicken on the chipotle was a little too sweet for my tastes. Very low key cozy vibe, I definitely recommend it!!
