                                                              Eaten here four previous times. Very good food, in general. Excellent pernil and paella. Prices have increased somewhat so, with tip and drinks, it came to $300 for four of us. My only ‘complaint’ was my vodka martini which should have been a full glass rather than two-thirds. This is a wonderful addition to Riverdale dining with a Latin flavor.

Went to Madison's next door which was GREAT! I do believe in second chances and may give them another chance to redeem themselves...we'll see.

                                                              The premises is not suitable for a disco music jockey and the music genre is totally out of place. It is medically certified; the background music during a meal should be smooth and low toned. Service was slow and not amicable, but I commend the chef because the taste and flavors in the food were delectable
