Our first time here and we really enjoyed it. Had all small plates and everything was delicious. Bartender did not come on shift till about 5:30 that day so only beer and wine available but they had a nice selection. Would eat here again.

He had helpful suggestions and also made sure to get our paella order in early so we didn’t r have to rush to the theater. The tapas were really good, especially the bacon wrapped dates. Our seafood paella was just ok - although a generous size, the mussels were over cooked and the rice lacked the crunchy saccarat that is the mark of an outstanding paella. Drinks came out promptly and when we were finished we got the check quickly too. All in all a great pre-dinner spot.

The Paella was slightly disappointing, the mussels and squid was tiny and needs some flavor. We had desserts too and it was ok. Unfortunately it wasn’t a satisfying.

Because we had 7 people we were able to try a large variety of dishes. Seafood paella was very good. The rice was not mushy and the seafood was perfectly cooked, not overcooked. We got many tapas and a small paella and it didn’t weigh us down.

Would recommend asking to be seated away from the front door as many tables are in the breezeway and last night was pretty chilly and windy. Also paella takes 40 min to make so give yourself time if your go to a show.

It was clearly chicken/chorizo precut/precooked from a bag and layered on top of mass produced mushy rice. The food was served lukewarm. I feel like I was served micro-waved rice with seafood/chicken/chorizo tossed on top. The best part of the meal was that the wait staff were honest and told us they made a mistake and delivered our meal to a different table which meant we waited for another paella to be prepared.

Ordered tapas only to gauge flavors first (wanted to make sure the price of the paella was worth it. Sadly we never got that far). Brussels sprouts -- Looked tasty! Nicely roasted. Had to ask for salt and pepper just to try to eek out some flavor. Seriously didn't even taste the cheese. Confusing. Pear confit-- Recommended by our server. Bland. Again, where was the flavor? At home I drizzle salads with olive oil, lemon, salt and pepper, and it never disappoints. It's really not hard to make a dressing tasty. Felt a bit like an airline version of a fancy salad. Prawns. These were the best thing we ordered. Lots of oil and garlic so hard to go wrong. The toast on the side was a nice touch. But not good enough to pull me back in, and nothing was good enough that it made us want to try the paella. Atmosphere-- Again, just ok. Our server was very friendly and helpful, which made the experience not a total disappointment.

The tapas were very good and good-sized. I’d have liked a bit more from the server on the presentation of each of them because it would have highlighted the kitchen’s work a bit more. But I’ll be back. Great pre or post theatre bites.

We especially liked the stuffed bacon warped dates, ox-tail, garlic prawns, smoked oysters, secreto iberico to mention a few. We also ordered the seafood paella, which was good but did not blow us away. The service was first rate. Attentive to all our needs.
