    Really great food and really cute atmosphere. Just be careful tip is already included and then they still ask if you want to leave a tip at the end.

    The calamari was overly salted, chunks of what seemed like Maldon salt were in the batter. The jamón ibérico did not taste fresh, it was slimy like when a ham is about to turn. The "saving" grace was the croquetas. The waitress also didn't disclose that a 20% tip was already included in the bill, so we ended up tipping 40%. We were so disappointed in the overall food and the menu- there are very limited options and everything seems to be drenched or offered with garlic aioli. The couple next to us ordered the paella and we asked how it was as we were considering it & they said they did not enjoy it. Overall we only got three appetizers and two drinks.

    El servicio en este restaurante es excelente. La mesera que nos atendió fue muy atenta y preocupada por nuestra hija que no come ese tipo de comida. La calidad de las croquetas es insuperable. Si vas, pide esa tapa! Fue una buena elección 👏

    A total disrespect to Spanish cuisine. The Tapas concept is a total fiasco and over price for the poor quality ingredients. I found a long hair on my fabada, los chicharrones were 4 little pieces for over $20. Las tórrejas a disappointment. The only thing we enjoyed was the wine and Mariana’s service. The prices on the website are totally different for the reality as well as the menu. 😡

    They call us to confirm the reservation but they didn't advise that the AC was broken and it was not comfortable in the restaurant. We order two bottles of wine and the waitress never came to the table to serve and the water.

    Bad customer service, we arrived with a reservation and after 20 minutes no one attended us at the table, no waiter, the manager came over but didn't bother to apologize, only the hostess when we decided to leave worried about apologizing. Small errors can affect a customer's perception.

    I found out about this place via social media and the page that recommended it had great things to say about it but unfortunately that wasn’t the case for our experience. When we walked in there was no hostess up and waited a while to be seated, turns out there was only one waitress serving all the tables and hosting. The restaurant had a few patrons but one waitress is unable to provide the proper service a patron expects when being charged 18% service on the bill. Overall the food was underwhelming and the service was decent but for the price I wouldn’t recommend it.
