                                                            First time diners here, but definitely not the last time! Great tapas and paella, only complaint was they had no iced tea, and the table water did not have any ice, which would have been welcome as we were seated outside on a very warm early evening.

                                                            I wanted to really like this place. The staff was wonderful, from the host to the chef! The food on the other hand is what ruined things. The food was extremely bland. The paella was not only bland, but completely burnt and stuck to the skillet.

Service was excellent — all were attentive and kind while still allowing space to enjoy your evening. Also, you must try their sangria! 10/10 would recommend and can’t wait for my next visit!

                                                            This is a small menu with a very focused cuisine. I ordered a seafood paella expecting the typically saffron dish. I got a paella that was over cooked, dry, stuck to the pan and looked as if it was in tomato sauce, not saffron.

                                                            We had a reservation at 8:15, got there a few minutes early. The host gave us a wait time of 5-7 minutes so we went to the bar. We order drinks and waited. And waited and waited. After about 15 min, we tried to flag someone down. Several people saw us but proceeded to ignore us. We went over to the original guy and he pretended to not see us. We finally got one of the bartenders to make eye contact. He said he would ask for us and never got back to us. We watched them seat two other parties and decided to leave. By this point it had been over an hour. As we were walking out, the first guy comes over to us to tell us it will be even longer. I told him we were leaving and did not appreciate being lied to and ignored. He had nothing to say. We will never go back there.
