    Food and drink was delicious as usual here! Service at the host stand was great along with the server's assistance. The server however was not very attentive. Did the bare minimum since gratuity is already included. Our table and the table next to us had to grab the server's attention to get service.

    Our server and the hostess were both excellent, the food was very good, the noise level is high, and the wine-by-the-bottle prices are off the charts expensive. Hard to purchase a bottle under $60 and most are $90 and above all the way to $700!

    The cocktails are always top notch! The service has always been good but it seems to have gotten even better. Also the quality of the food makes the prices seem more reasonable.

    We didnt love it despite the fact that this place always is booked. Sitting on the terrace made service a tad slow as they were more focused on the indoor side. Glad we got to try it, but most likely wont be back.

    This was the first visit by my wife and I. Parking on the street was easy. We made reservations and got seated immediately. The service was excellent and so was the food with unbelievable great flavors. I highly recommend the Calamari. The best I ever had.

    Followed our server’s recommendation to share the Tomahawk steak and lobster paella for our family of 8. Great idea! It fed us all! Of course, we had to try their tapas - ham croquettas, crab croquettas, chicken empanada, oysters, steak skewers, pork belly - plus their trio dessert to end our luncheon. Must try their Butter Beer, too! Loved the food and their presentation!

    I am so done with this place. Every time, you have to wait 15+ min to get a table even when tables are available. The hostesses are a bottleneck. It makes coming to this restaurant unpleasant. I wrote to the restaurant before about this but they don't bother replying nor addressing it.

    The service and entire staff are always wonderful, the drinks are beautiful and taste good. Most of the food is great. The seafood paella is seriously lacking good seafood though. Four shrimp that were mushy and weird textured. Three clams that were super overdone, and some super tiny scallops. Pretty pricy for mostly rice. But the flavor of the dish was good!

    Paella was disappointing. the meats were tough and crispy. We had the one with pork and pulpo. The rice was crispy. All the moisture was cooked out and it all stuck to the pan. The meal cost us nearly $180. Really disappointing. I would rather eat at home. The best part of the meal was the wine my husband drank and the churros we had for dessert.

    We had seven tapas and two paellas for a group of six, which seemed about right for moderate appetites. Everything was top notch, distinctive, creative and full of flavor. Our server was very flexible and friendly and the sommelier, Jordi, went above and beyond, talking with my dad about the wines in detail and then telling us all about places to visit - and eat - in Spain, insisting on writing out a list for our next visit overseas. We had a lovely Saturday lunch.

    I was meeting a client for lunch on a Friday. The food was amazing! Hats off to the chefs! The hostess was not as pleasant as I hoped. When I arrived I wasn't greeted with a friendly smile nor did she ask "how are you". When I sat there for 10 min without anyone even approaching me to order even a drink, I kindly flagged her down and she didn't even apologize for not having any server approach me. My server was nice. Overall, I would come back for the food and give it another try.
