The dining experience was terrific. More than we thought we'd get. Were not expecting a flamenco show, and got a great one. The food was very good and the waiter, although a little shy, was polite and made things right. We'll go back again.

Very helpful servers. Super entertaining dancing & singing for the birthday customers! Tapas were all good for the most part, but the seafood paella was the star of the show. :)

Had an amazing time. It was Wednesday and everyone made our time even better. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. We had the family style and was a great deal. It was my dads 80th Birthday and I spoke to Alex earlier who assured we would have a safe experience . Our table was right next to open doors. Staff had masks. Definitely will do again

I think the place is ok for the venue but it’s too noisy to have a date or to have a conversation with the companion. The prices are about what to expect for the type of food served. The taste was to expect for Spanish food. The host at the door and other female servers were inappropriate having a tight dress/shirt showing a lot of upper body that gives the wrong impression weather I’m going for dinner or a men’s club. Made me feel uncomfortable with my date. Maybe I’ll go back if I’m invited but not me paying for that type of service. If I want to see cleavage and other things I don’t go to restaurants I stay home....

Upon arrival, where I had a reservation, and specified where I’d like for my party to be sat. Get seated far from what I requested. It was also a birthday celebration, which I made them aware of and they did not fulfill that at all. Food awful, drinks awful, cups our drinks were served in cloudy, not clean well.

The restaurant looks great and high energy. The short comings were mainly the food. We had the calamari, the pork belly, and the octopus along with the lamb chops and carne asada. Everything tasted either under seasoned or under cooked. However, the pork belly was amazing. Overall I’m not saying it was bad, it was good but for the price it was far from great.

Fun vibe. Love the flamenco dancing. Shrimp (cocktail) was 60% cooked. Surf and turf was as expected, just slightly overcooked (wanted filet medium rare). Looking forward to trying their paella next time. Hostess and server were very friendly and kind. Bar service was a bit slow. It was Valentine's Day so it was fairly busy.

I was very excited to go to this restaurant but was disappointed. The pitcher of sangria was watered down. The paella was super small. Although the taste was excellent it was burnt on the bottom.

The service was horrible, food was good except for one issue. I ordered guacamole that comes with the house chips. When it came out, it was served with 3 digestive biscuit cookies and a soda cracker. Out waitress didn’t tell us they were out of chips and instead the restaurant slapped together some strange cookies. I would have rather they tell me so I don’t get it, or at the very least serve with bread instead!!! Like come on, who eats guacamole with sweet cookies?! She also never brought us utensils nor refilled our water. Didn’t check up on us. It was a busy day so fine, but definitely an issue with the guacamole. The rest of the food was goodish. Not great but not bad. Don’t think we’ll return.

We went to this restaurant for Valentine’s Day as a family. I understand that holiday weekends, especially Valentine’s Day is a very busy time for restaurants. This restaurant is very nice with a nice ambiance. But our experience was lackluster to say the LEAST. We were seated at a table directly in front of a door. We were promised that the door was locked. But two different sets of people were able to open the door from outside and literally squeezed in right by me. One lady squeezed by me so close that she rubbed her hot FUPA on my arm! They finally roped off the door to stop people from coming in. Then we ordered the Valentine’s Day special which was lobster tail and filet Mignon. The waitress never asked how we wanted our meat done. They both were very overcooked and tough! The only thing good was our drinks and the mashed potatoes that came with our meal! We did love the live dancing entertainment. I truly hope this was an isolated event for this restaurant because our first experience was not good!

Went for the Valentine’s Day dinner special surf and turf with flaming dancing. Our reservation was for 3:45 seating, but there was no flaming dancing. Another bummer was the uncomfortable chairs very narrow metal seats. Seems like the most comfy chairs are the ones around the kitchen and the bar stools. Food was good, red sangria was pretty good but nothing to write home about.

Seafood paella was not authentic as it lacked lobster and langostines. Octopus was gummy. Taste was okay. The other dishes we ordered were amazing.

This was for Valentines weekend dinner. Everyone , from reception to the manager and the server team were very accommodating and eager to help us enjoy our dinning experience. The Flamenco show was entertaining and a nice touch to the ambiance. We look forward to be back with family.

We reserved a time specifically so we could enjoy the Flamenco dancing advertised on their website. When we were seated, it appeared we would not be able to view the dancing- we asked specifically and was assured the dancer would “come around “. We were eating our dessert when the entertainment started, she only danced out of our view on a small stage for a short time. When I complained after she was finished, manager did offer for her to come and dance for us, but we were done & felt it would be awkward and weird. While the food was okay, we could have eaten almost anywhere, earlier and likely cheaper for basically the same experience.

Horrible experiencia.
He visitado este lugar varias veces y entedi que era el lugar ideal para encontrarnos con unas amigas para nuestro almuerzo entre amigas.
La mesera no sabia ni lo que estaba haciendo. Nunca me ofrecio el Menu solo lo que ella entendia que deberia comer. Llegue un poco tarde a la cita pero mis amigas que ya estaban en el lugar ya habian ordenado sus tapas cuando no le informaron que habia Happy Hour despues de hacer su orden. Ahi tuvimos el primer percance. No solo eso como ya habian ordenando ellas su paella la mesera me dice que la mia iba a tardarse mas de 45 min pues habia llegado tarde pues ni modo solicito una ensalada de pollo. Que asco! al primer mordido habia un pelo entre medio del primer pedazo de pollo que me heche a la boca. El Manager me pidio una disculpa pero esa sensacion y desilucion se quedo en mi toda la tarde que tratamos de pasarla bien. La mesera nunca se disculpo. Si solo me cobraron la paella para llevar y la sangria que tome. Pero lamentablemente no vuelvo ni mucho menos se lo recomendaria a mis clientes tampoco. Desilucion total!

The place was cranking excessive Latin music which this is a Spanish Spain Restaurant not Latin. Service was poor. Charcuterie wS AWFUL!!! I could buy those products at any grocery. Very disappointed with the whole experience not even able to get bottled water. Just AWFUL. They should not be allowed to call themselves a Tapas Restaurant.
