    Great as always. The sangria is never too sweet, and patatas bravas are the best.

    Our server was very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Our paellas were so tasty and plentiful! Well cooked and delicious. We had some tapas that were also very good It was very loud and it was hard to talk to our guests. Other than that it is a great restaurant!

    We had a large group and ended up having to wait quite a while for our table which was reconciled by giving us a private room and comping $200 which was really great!

    The food here is really good and the service is friendly and quick. The only thing that is a little weird for me is how the food comes out so sporadic. I know I know that’s how tapas restaurants are. I just would like to have them paced out a little better.

    Very kind and polite staff! They have wide assortment of Spanish wines that pair well with a fun style of eating intended to suggest sharing multiple rounds of small plates that each individually pack a punch in flavor. I would suggest the garlic shrimp and patatas!
