    Very nice seating area on Lincoln. Waitress was very nice and service was great. My wife ordered a snapper and it was a big whole fish with good side items. I ordered a steak but it was slightly overcooked. Price is reasonable for the area.

    Not sure how Tapelia receives high ratings. I rarely review and almost never complain but the food simply wasn’t great last night, paella mushy, service was stretched and infrequent, menu poorly managed and items unavailable. Good value on drinks though, which they made little money on over the 2.5 hrs because she came by so little. By the end spent almost $300 and was completely unsatisfactory across the board.

    Overpriced and mediocre at best. The paella was super salty and the service was minimal considering they have auto gratuity at 20%.

    ¡Indulged in the seafood paella and was blown away by the exquisite combination of flavors! Each bite was a journey through the depths of the ocean, with tender seafood perfectly complemented by the fragrant saffron-infused rice. A true culinary adventure that left me craving more!
