                                                              It’s so hit and miss here. One visit is great, the next is sub par. This one was sub par. Food was ok (small as usual). $50 for a steak is extreme. They keep taking Mariscos off the menu for some reason even though they have the ingredients for the paella. But, my $8 beer was luke warm. They admitted they used a warm glass from the dishwasher. No problem, just bring me a cold beer. They literally put ice cubes in my beer and brought it back to me. They at least should have let the ice melt. Pretty insulting actually. Probably will be our last visit.

                                                              For my husband’s 64th birthday. The food was elegant, artfully presented yet simple, the beverages colorful, the ambience intimate but happening like a neighborhood restaurant. We see returning with friends!

                                                              We both opted for a paella dish. My partner loved his, I found the meat dry (chicken and chorizo; pork). Nice flavor but unremarkable. Noisy space.

                                                              The space is great and the service was excellent. I enjoyed the food but I felt like the cook on everything could have been slightly better for the caliber of restaurant. The patatas bravas needed a bit more crunch and there was very little garlic mayo. The vegetable dish and croquettes were a little under cooked. The paella was very good and for the time I understand not getting a good texture on the bottom. All around a great experience and we’re sure to return.

                                                              Love Can Font for Spanish food! Great wine list. For tapas, the croquetas de jamón are a favorite. The pulpo with puré de papa is delicious. The paella de pollo y chorizo is our go-to for the main course. The portions are generous! Thank you for the excellent meal and service. ¡Ya regresamos!

                                                              Our server (Bethany?) was excellent - attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. The tapas (shushito peppers and papayas bravos) were delicious and large portions. The main dishes - salmon, duck breast and vegetarian terrine were very good (though my duck was not as hot as I would have liked). The deserts were also delicious. We will return.

                                                              WHAT A GREAT SPOT for cocktails (which were amazing), wonderful wine selection to compliment a terrific appetizer/Tapas menu... but the main courses were amazing. One of our party ordered the Salmon entre and said it was the best she'd ever eaten. I opted for appetizer/tapas for my main course... Ceviche which was some of the best I've ever had and then a medley of octopus, shrimp, olives in a saute that was to die for. I saw dishes if Paella that were on other tables that looked fantastic and definately worth the wait (some took up to 40 minutes to prepare).

Our food came quickly and was hot. The staff were very pleasant, answering any and all of our questions.

Our night was made special by everyone we interacted with, from the bartender to the manager and waiter. And the food! Our beet salad was excellent, and the paella was perfect. I highly recommend!

                                                              The food was good and the service excelent. However, I expected paella to be in part with what we had in Spain, it was not. I thought the offerings in the now-defunct Torro Bravo were better. However, the tapas we had were excellent, and the service was excellent as well.
