Fantastic restaurant. We've been going for years and years and the food and service is always outstanding- without exception!
The food was and the service was phenomenal.....will definitely go back!
Not so good and not bad.
Wonderful meal and lovely restaurant interior. Paella superb and shrimp-stuffed red peppers delicious.
We had lunch during DC Restaurant Week. It was a wonderful meal served perfectly, by a very attentive staff.
Went for resturant week. Menu was incredible and service was prompt and extremely helpful. Will definitely be returning.
Service was great, not a step missed. Food was great as well, expect for dessert. We ordered churros, Flan, and torrijas these could have definitely been better.
Paella was delicious, lemon tart was great, and the fried manchengo with raspberry sauce was one of tastiest appetizers I’ve had in a long time. Went for Restaurant Week. Nice to try fancier dining for a more reasonable price.
The ambience of the place is good. Starters and deserts were fine but the main course was disappointing. The drinks were fine too.
Very busy at Saturday lunch during restaurant week. Professional service, quality (if not outstanding) paella Valenciana, manchego with raspberry sauce, Spanish toast with fruit, chocolate sauce, and ice cream, and other food selections, average wine, closed garage making street parking the only option. We will come again soon.
The Worst experience in a restaurant I’ve had in DC. Food was mediocre, service was awful, and the whole restaurant was a COVID hazard. Servers did not ensure people wore masks while waiting to be seated.
Had an excellent time! Great vibe, great food, exceptional service -- I will definitely be back.
Wife and I visited here during DC restaurant week. They had parking in a garage right across the street, and when entering we did not have to wait long to be seated. The place had a nice Spanish vibe, and the live singing and dancing was really good. For a starter we had the fried potatoes with spicy sauce and the garlic shrimp. The potatoes nice and crispy with a really good kick in the sauce and my wife loved her garlic shrimp. We had the chicken and sausage paella for our entree, it was so good and very filling. Really loved the rice and the squeeze of Limon really set it off. For dessert the Churro con Chocolate was great. We really love the whole meal and will visit again.
We ordered seafood paella. It was delicious! Outstanding service. Friendly, buzzy place. Highly recommend.
The service/staff were extremely accommodating and made it an outstanding experience.
Thanks so much for a great Restaurant week menu and service.
Good, authentic Spanish food. Several kinds of paellas. The service was excellent.
We gave this place a try for Restaurant Week. Wonderful decor, complimentary parking in the garage right across the street (after 4PM weekdays and all day on weekends), the food was awesome and the staff was very friendly and attentive.
We had the seafood paella and it was excellent. The other dishes coming out of the kitchen looked just as good, and I'm sure they were!
Great food and service. Nice environment. It's like taking a trip to Spain with the decor, environment, food and all. We enjoyed a lot.
Outstanding quality of good, of service, of atmosphere.
This is a restaurant that aims to please their diners from the moment you check in at the hostess stand until the moment you walk out the door.
The food, service and ambiance is off the charts. It's a dining experience that you'll have to go a long way in Washington to beat.
Great restaurant for a special occasion. Warm, elegant and lively - in a slightly old fashioned way. Service was generally very good, but could have been a little less impersonal. Food is good, with an emphasis on Paellas - traditional but not at the forefront of modern Spanish cuisine.
Went for Restaurant Week and enjoyed a great evening with my girlfriend. The host and waiters provided excellent service and the food and wine was to die for. Will have to go again to try more dishes!
While slow in the middle of the day on MLK day, the service was hit or miss. Quickly attended to initially, but then I had to ask for more water a few times.
When the premium wine I ordered a glass of finished the bottle, the server never returned to finish my pour.
They did not bring the box/bag of leftovers until about 25 minutes later when I was trying to leaves. Said they forgot.
While have not been there in years, and I know the industry is pressed for staff, I do expect more from the establishment. It was not busy during my visit and other tables were better attended to.
However the food was delectable
I really like the service, it has a wonderful decoration. You need to be vaccinated, I didn’t like some of the desserts and some plates are expensive but you can eat for cheap too.
Very much enjoyed our lunch during Restaurant Week...terrific menu, good and plentiful food and quiet atmosphere.
A wonderful Birthday celebration dinner for my Son! One of our very favorite restaurants in the City for decades now! Gracias y Feliz Ano Nuevo!
Amazing food and ambiance! Flamenco dance on Saturday night was fantastic.
You will feel like you’re in Spain. Very authentic. Amazing food and service.
Beautiful setting . Good service and food was authentic . I will be cackle for flamenco 🎉
-will definitely return, and frequent the place ore often
Great Restaurant! Delicius food, good mimosas, the brunch is enough as lunch!
First time visiting for NYE 2021 and was blown away. The menu was set and we just held on for the ride. The duck was amazing and by far my favorite. We also loved the lamb shank. The service was excellent and all the staff was friendly and attentive. A wonderful way to ring in the new year. We will definitely be returning. Cheers!
Dec 31 reserved a table, but It's to much money and no good food. Thank you
Staff was friendly & professional. Food was good. Loves the raspberry tequila sorbet! Only downside was that I expected a flamingo dancer, but because it was a holiday dancer didn’t perform & a holiday menu, wish that was posted online or somewhere just to get a heads up.
Really nice place to eat and have a good wine. The prices for the wines are high but they have a good list.
Excellent service - food was outstanding - very knowledgeable wait staff
Great food, generous portions, well prepared, and reasonably priced. I recommend the octopus. The paella is more than enough for two people. A single order is more appropriate for four to six people.
The service was exceptional. The staff was very attentive and professional.
The ambiance was almost perfect.
Amazing experience! Will definitely come back next time we are in DC!
Disfrutamos muchísimo del ambiente y la comida. Unas tapas para empezar y abrir boca con una caña de Mahiu y una sangría: salmorejo, croquetas, pulpo y chipirón. Y después un plato de carrillada y otro de costillas de cordero. Pero el momento flashback fue cuando probamos el toffee de decoración de la torrija. Fue un auténtico paseo al pasado en España.
