As always the food was great and the service was very good. The only awkward thing was 3 of our dishes came out very quickly, before our drinks, and made it feel a bit rushed. But once we got our drinks and things slowed down a bit we enjoyed ourselves very much.

Reservation was at 9pm and they had later spots available but pretty soon after we were seated and ordered our food the server told us the kitchen would close at 10. We felt rushed throughout the entire meal and had to take one of the dishes home because the server clearly wanted to go home early. She brought the check before we were done eating and would not even bring us a glass of wine although it was not 10 yet and wine does not come from the kitchen. Food was hit or miss, not authentic Spanish and overpriced. It's a shame because the place is in a great location and it's a beautiful space. They could do much better.

The food was delicious and the cocktails were tart and tasty! Danny was our server and he was relaxed and hospitable and made us feel like we were in his own dining room. He was a gracious host. We never felt rushed but he was right there with a friendly smile when we were ready for another tapas plate. We finished the night at the roof top bar and the service there was equally as friendly and comfortable. It was an absolutely lovely birthday dinner! Thanks!

The overall experience was great. The only complaint I have is that we asked for an extra shot of gin in our lemongrass during happy hour and we were not informed that the shot was $12 extra. The drink during happy hour is only $5.5 and regularly $11 so it’s a little bit ridiculous that an extra shot in the drink would cost $12 extra. That should be something that the staff should inform the customers about if it is that much extra. I just don’t understand how the an extra shot in the drink cost $12 when the drink regularly only cost $11.

We made reservations for four. The day before the date tried to change to 6 people. Said they had no table availble. Turned out not to be accurate at all, the evening we were there at a one hour earlier.

Sam is the best bartender ever! Every dish she recommended was outstanding and she made the BEST Mojito I have ever tasted...perfect amount of mint, perfect amount of fizz. Not many bartenders get the 2 amounts perfect...Sam was spot on. Give that girl a raise!!!

Food was great, service was great, drinks were great! We had awesome service. We were there for Saturday brunch and there really weren't many people eating there. They easily accommodated seven us. They kept our bottomless sangrias full. I would highly recommend!
