Great venue for unique food and a fun atmosphere! A live performer was a lot of fun but it did get a little loud. Not impossible to hold a conversation though.

Small portions and average good. When we told the waiter we would not be staying for the Flaminco show, ge rushed us out if there. Not going back

Don't be fooled by Happy Hour specials. Drinks on happy hour are considerably smaller than the ones served most of the time. Service is below par from r the prices and number of diners. Overall a disappointing evening.

Food was very good! The ambiance was bright and not cozy for a date night.

We were disappointed in the appearance of the restaurant upon arriving. The picture posted make it look more upscale than it is. The picture made it look as if there were linen tablecloths and napkins. The table covers were paper. The atmosphere very casual. The food was terrific. If I were in the neighborhood I would go again but I would not make a special trip.

Wonderful cuisine. My husband is from Madrid and he and I loved every dish. The scallops with manchego cheese and bechamel sauce were wonderful. Serrano delicious. The Malbec excellent and so was the Estrella beer. We felt as though we had visited Spain for a while. Would definitely return if in the area. Did not have dessert...too full with all the wonderful tapas.

Deliciously prepared grilled shrimp, filete salteado, Blue crab and Paella Valenciana. Our server Dillon O'Donnell has great knowledge of the menu options, its preparation and wine pairing.

We were quite disappointed with many of the foods we ordered,i.e.,paella, pulpo tapas. We have traveled throughout Spain several times and we were hoping this will bring Spain close to home. The music was great. The server was very nice and helpful. Not our favorite dining spot for the future.

This was a date night and decided to try something new. The ambiance was very nice, just a tad warm. There was a guitarist there that we really enjoyed, not overpowering at all! We had Paella Valencia and Delicias Del Mar, we enjoyed both. Overall enjoyed ourselves and would recommend to friends.

We enjoyed the mojitos, tapas and live music. Service was outstanding. We are coming back in a couple of weeks.

I can't speak much to the ambiance of the restaurant because the dinner I had was at 4 so the light outside was shining bright and it didn't have the romantic feel I was hoping for. I will say that the tables and chairs are a little short so it was a little odd but believe me the food was worth it! My girlfriend and I both had the Pescado Al Límon and I would definitely go back there again for the food alone! Our server was great and respectful too! I just wouldn't choose it for special occasions. Maybe it would be different from if I were to go at a better time when it's dark out? Then it would've had more of the atmosphere that I was looking for. All in all I would recommend this place for the food and service for sure!
