    This restaurant should really be called “Spanish inspired”. The food is ok and the paella is not worth the $30 price or 30 min wait. Very little flavor besides the turmeric that overpowered the entire dish. The small plates are hit or miss. We had a couple of really good dishes like the Meatballs and some that were below par, the Hummus. They had live music which was beautiful, but the service was incredibly slow and the food pace was off. We got some tapas within minutes of ordering and others took over 20 mins to come out. I wouldn’t go back again.

    This was a great place to celebrate a birthday or have a nice date night. We sat in their outdoor patio in the back and it was a nice setting for an intimate evening for both a couple and a group of friends. The ambience is great as are the tapas and wine selection. Wonderful place. I'm sure we'll be back.

    The music was extremely loud. We love live music but we could barely hear each other talking. In my opinion, at a restaurant like this the music should be ambient, not overpowering.

    Great wine list and great tapas menu. Main room has nice ambiance but there are several other rooms too. Can be loud when the musician is there on weekends. The kitchen is usually fast, allowing you to try a few small plates and then order some more. The marinated manchego, the gambas al pil pil and the filet mignon pinchos de ternera were true standouts.

    Dinner. Metered street parking. Some menu items were no longer available on this last day of DineLA. We are not wine drinkers and, thankfully, our request for wine tasting was accommodated with my mother given a sangria instead to allay her alcohol-challenged palate. They were out of butternut squash soup so we opted for cream of mushroom soup which was deliciously filling. The crispy and tasty calamares fritos were wonderfully complemented by their house made aioli. We thoroughly enjoyed the flavorful seafood paella which was more than enough for us. Our sweet endings were churros and flan Español. A delectable surprise shortly followed - a serving of pastel de chocolate with a lit candle. Thank you Vino for a memorable birthday celebration.

    Went for DineLA and it was an amazing deal! 4 courses + a glass of wine. Really good food and large wine list. Service definitely left a little bit to be desired. I asked to order a second glass of wine, and the person said "Let me grab your server." and a server didn't come until they brought our dessert course. By then, I would have had to chug my wine so I didn't order it. The restaurant's loss!

    My husband and I went there for Dine LA - I had been there with a friend a few weeks ago and we just chose items off the menu and were very happy. We chose last night because it was a Monday and we figured it would be pretty quiet - which it wasn't. They were quite busy and service was rather slow. The Dine LA menu had a lot of good choices and we basically liked our picks I had the butternut squash soup which would have been totally delicious except it was very salty, ditto for my husband's mushroom soup; prior to the soup, though, we were brought a dish which appeared to be meatballs (but we mostly were ordering chicken dishes). After a taste or two, we asked the server if these were ours and he realized it came to the wrong table. We had the chicken wrapped in mashed potatoes, delicious, empanadas (spinach and chicken-yummy), mushrooms sauteed with garlic (great) and for our entrees, my husband had the salmon (he had wanted the short ribs but they were out) and I had the chicken baked in panko - both were great. Dessert was flan (among the best I've had) and churros with chocolate sauce - both really good. We'll definitely go back, and I think that when my friend and I ordered off the menu, the price was about the same, but we were able to sample more things. The wine menu is outstanding, they offer a flight with three 3 oz pours, which was fun and educational.
