Everything was amazing except they brought out my dinner but my wife’s dinner was not brought out. It took them an hour to realize that they were out of the scallops she ordered and then it took another 30min to get served rack of lamb, which the owner wouldn’t comp for us. But we had a blast!

This was my third visit to this tapas room. The ambiance is that of a neighborhood bar. At happy hour the place is hopping. The food is mostly good though uninspired. The ceviche is excellent the two eggplant dishes are good though the one with the drizzled honey is sometimes a bit greasy. The fillet mignon skewer is excellent as well. I would recommend adding few more items to the menu.
The service was friendly fast and excellent. On our last outing there was a guitar player. Though the musician was good, the place is too small for the volume of the music and it rendered conversation almost impossible.
I would heartily recommend this place for happy hour and a casual evening out.

I come here often and I love it! They have an amazing wine list with great variety; there's something for every palate and price point. Their tapas are delicious as well, a lot of comfort food and heavy on the potatoes, meat, and cheese. Ambiance is great and there's live music every time I have gone on weekends. Highly recommend!

Nice place to have a bite to eat and talk. Friendly service and nice atmosphere. Not authentic Spanish tapas but the food was good.

When we arrived they didn't have our reservation. The owner sat us on a back room with no view to the main room so we couldn't see or hear the performer. The Tapas were good but the main courses were not that good. All orders came one at a time with some time elapse in between.employees were courteous.

Great food and ambiance. Love the live guitar but it is too loud in the main room to be able to have a comfortable conversation.

A small hot spot with amazing Spanish cuisine and live music. Best Paella in town!

Don't think they are use to taking reservations since we were told the wait would be over an hour. Waited until a spot opened up at the bar instead after 30 mineuuts and sat there. But this is still one of my favorite neighborhood gems.

We had a beautiful variety of dishes from the tapas menu and loved almost everything, potato balls, short rib, eggplant chips, bacon wrapped dates. We paired it with a wine flight. Our table was too small for the amount of food and wine but otherwise it was very nice. Service was unbelievably fast. Great experience for a birthday on a Saturday night.

My friend and I went for the first time and We had such a pleasant time. The acoustic guitarist enhanced the whole environment. And We even caught Happy Hour!

I have been here many times but this time wasn't as great. The service took forever and some things were just not good, like the meatballs that were filled with mint leaves (not described on menu) and the ceviche barely had any fish in it. The mushroom soup was really good though. It was way too loud in there to have a conversation also. In general I really like this place so I hope this was a rare occasion.

First try in this place and I would say that it is a very nice experience. It's small restaurant but cozy. I love jazz music and I love that they have someone infront performing instrumental jazz. I went here for a business meeting and we all enjoyed the night with wine and cheese plate. Will definitely come back for hang outs.
