    Really nice people and great tapas! Wine was also delicious. I went with my elderly mother and we really enjoyed it. We have the 9 course tapas and it started with a roast pepper soup bouche s'amuse. Then fresh anchovies. Then crouquets and potatoes with jambon. Then gambarone. Stuffed red bell peppers with cheese and spinach. Delicious fresh sorbet and a yummy light chocolate ice cream.

    Great neighborhood tapas. Scallop and shrimp dishes were fantastic. Lamb could have been more tender, yet was tasty.

    Best dining experience! Matt called me shortly after I made the reservation to inquire if I meant to reserve outdoor seating for my party of 8 or would I prefer indoor. Indoor please! He was gracious enough to start working on our order after learning my daughter’s graduation was running late. Everything was amazing! We had the seafood paella, potata bravas, cheese plate, croquettes, halibut, and the wine oh my! Five stars all the way! You won’t be disappointed

    We had a group of 8 and Chris was our server and they were absolutely amazing, patient, and made incredible suggestions for us. We couldn’t have had a fun dinner without them. So all thanks to them for making our night. Obviously, the food was delicious. Thanks Chris!!!
