Had 5 different tapas with my wife. Gazpacho - good, salmon, steak tartar, beef and eggplant, mushroom crepe: all first-class. Great wine list, got a $60 bottle of 2016 Tempranillo and it too, was a decent value. Unobtrusive service, answered questions and made good recommendations. Went early at 6pm, place was full and loud at 7:30 when we left. Excellent value for the cost. Tapas were larger portions than most tapas places I've visited. Will go back.

The chef has a gift for flavor combinations and presentation. We lived the atmosphere as it was clean and very charming. Their unique beverage list had a very extensive choice of wines and craft cocktails. I would dine there again next time I am in the area!

Why? Because we can correct the situation at the very moment for you and for the rest of our guest: if you are having a bad experience most likely some other people are having that bad experience so we need our customers to tell us at our face so we can go back to the right path and do the right thing Gustavo Iniesta, G.M.

This time it was four of us. We had the sangria for starters, as I remember it being the best sangría in D.C. I wish one could recreate one tasting experience from the past again in order to be able to compare more directly, but that is not possible, and I can only go by my vague memory that it used to be a bit better. But I still liked this one (red) a lot. We later had the white sangría, which to my surprise was more ‘entertaining.’ For food, we had octopus, lubina, cod buñuelos, presa ibérica (pork) and salpicón de mariscos. All were delicious, but the highlights were the presa ibérica and the octopus. I wish the salpicón had had a more intense vinegar taste. Some of us were also disappointed that the menu did not have the staples of patatas bravas or tortilla de patatas, although I myself had no issue with the fact that they weren’t on the menu. The service was excellent, accommodating and fast. I will come back soon, perhaps to enjoy lunch.

The octopus was the best we've ever had and the Iberian pork shoulder was unbelievable.

They have a great menu and likely more to come in the spring, so will definitely come back to try some more items.

Some dishes were tasty and others were just plain blank and tasteless . The Spanish rice, octopus and both cauliflower and lentil soups were awesome . The Cod in sea bass tasted like fish boiled in water and that’s it. So if you enjoy those dishes you will like it , otherwise it’s a hit or Miss

It’s either lacking in flavor (I.e. fried anchovies), scanty and lacking in flavor (ie the bavette and mushroom crepe) or too salty (ie the marisco). The best was the truffle cauliflower soup- sadly. We’d love if they can improve based on this feedback as the vibe is great!

Chef is excellent. We love the Tuna Crudo, the duck breast. A nice range of choices with a Spanish twist. Can order small tapas, mid, or full plate of all dishes. Great date night or friend gathering!

The Fisherman's Stew was bland and served boiling hot. Perhaps this is another case of over expansion by the owner-chef and leaving the kitchen to lesser cooks.

It was good but not all was truly authentic Spanish. There was a lot of cilantro used ma you hardly (if ever) see cilantro in Spanish food. The octopus fish did not have crisped skin which made the texture unappealing. The fisherman’s stew was incredible and the seafood in it was cooked perfectly. The bellota jamon was not as high quality as it should be so we were disappointed by the texture. The manchego was great. Disappointing that a Spanish restaurant did not serve olives. The ambiance was pleasant and wait staff was great.

The service is top-notch - we especially enjoyed our knowledgeable and charming principle server, Anna, on this visit, as well as the host's typically warm welcome. It was our first time back dining in the restaurant in quite some time because of covid, and it was so good to be there!

We elected to share larger dishes, but they were all excellent. The mushroom crepe and the cod were superb. I also had the red sangria, which was perfect with the meal.
