Great restaurant. Did well with social distancing. Food was good (we did all small plates). The service was ok (they were late with our reservation and towards the end we had to wait 15 minutes to ask for our check).

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here this year, and we had a great time! The food was fantastic. The service was perfect. The ambience reminded me of the vinotecas that I visited often when in Spain. Great place!

Always amazing. Sexy place for a date. The jalapeño ahi with banana chips is a mouth explosion and I’m never disappointed in the Moscow mules with a garnished ginger cube.

I didn’t like the fact that I was told I can make a reservation at 9:30pm and we got there they told us that the kitchen was closing in 10 minutes. We didn’t even look up the menus and we were rush to order. However, the food was great.

Our waitress Martha made the experience that much better!! She advised us what to eat, since the small plates (tapas) come out very quickly and are all different types of food. We loved having her guidance and trust us the food looks different, but taste wonderful!! I definitely recommend the salmon carpaccio and the brisket 😜

Such a fun and delicious night out. Our service was fantastic and food top notch!
The staff wore masks and mostly distanced but I was a tiny bit uncomfortable at how close the table behind us was.

Our waiter was candid and very helpful! We LOVED sampling the menu, including the cannolini, the shrimp with garlic sauce and bread, the Spanish omelette...really enjoyed the meal and the coconut flan was also great...they use tons of fresh herbs and ingredients and it shows. I found the prices to be reasonable. We will definitely be back!

We ate outside, chilly conditions. However, heaters on the patio were great; we were cozy and warm. Lentil soup was very good, as was the salmon. Manager was attentive, as was our server. Great experience.

Overall, the food was ok, but not memorable. The huevos and patatas were the best dishes. The short ribs were fine, but forgettable. The meatballs were just ok. The shrimp was tasteless and the octopus was over cooked and rubbery. The sangria was just so so, anc the old fashioned with chocolate bitters tasted like ever other old fashioned. Miro is a better Spanish option.

we were looking for heated outdoor seating so chose here ... not a great start when we had to find somebody (and ask twice) for the heater near us to be started. The menu looked promising and we all know a decent amount about Spanish food ... most importantly, after receiving food, no one ever asked us how things were ... if they had, we would have told them that they calamari was almost inedible ... our waitress finally showed back up ... we told her as she was giving us the check ... she did take it off but there was never even an apology ... just “yeah I thought it looked off” ... nothing else was great ... lesson learned ...

Took my wife to celebrate her birthday. We each enjoyed a “Spanish Old Fashioned” and several different small plates that were all delicious. Highly recommend!
