The service was not great and the food took forever to the point that another server asked if we had already ordered! No apologies thereafter. The food was good though.

Overall, it was a mediocre experience. The food and environment were both enjoyable. However, my server lacked a sense of personality and care. We asked for his opinion for food options and he continued to shrug and act confused. When asked about the sangria, he merely said “just get what you want”. There was another server named Tanner that saved the day and was amazing! However, I can’t even remember my assigned server’s Anne because he lacked a sense of engagement the entire time.

It was a quiet night, so not as loud as some nights. The service was excellent. They have a nice collection of specialty cocktails and you won't find hardly any of them at other restaurants. The food was very nice, as always.

I celebrated my birthday here and Daniel took very good care of our bunch! I usually come for happy hour midweek but glad I came to enjoy the bottomless brunch drinks (choice of mimosa or sangria). Daniel made sure that our glasses were never empty! I didn't even stop to think that the entrees would also be tapas style, so I reccomend ordering a few things for your table to enjoy! Most people in our group order the steak and eggs or the chicken and churros and everyone was happy!

My only and most important issue was that their chicken paella is cooked in shrimp stock, but that's not mentioned anywhere on the menu. My husband is severely allergic to shellfish and ordered not knowing as the description does not state. Thank goodness he had a drink prior to having a spoonful force could have been at the hospital. The resturant apologized and offered to give him something else, however it ruined the experience for him. At that point he was afraid to eat anything else. We have been to places that cook it with no seafood so as it didnt staten the menu we assumed it was okay based on the menu. I just want them to update the menu to mention that the dish contains seafood to avoid a potential severe medical incident.

Fantastic tapas every time! Food is never a disappointment. Bar service can be quite slow compared to how quickly the kitchen will get your food out to you. May find yourself eating before you get your cocktails. Other than that, beautiful place to enjoy a great night with friends and loved ones.

After several trips to Spain I thought the food was authentic. It definitely reminded me of Spanish tapas. The restaurant was surprisingly slow on a Sunday night, but the experience was still great. Additionally, on Sunday they have 50% off bottles of wine which was much appreciated!

The overall experience was good but my chicken and churros was not cooked all the way through which I didn’t discover until I got to the center. When I told the waitress just to let her know because it was cooked chicken she just said “ok”, don’t offer to comp. the portions were small, my parents ordered biscuits after eating their meals to fill up.
