lovely meal, wine excellent, though the tenderloin had more sinue than usual, think maybe it's the kind of cut that you have, because we had this happen twice now.

If you're shopping in the area, this is a nice, convenient spot for a cool bevvy or coffee & snacking on dips. Dessert looked nice but didn't try any.

I’d never been so was excited to try a new place. The appetizers we had were lovely. I ordered a main Tapas that I wasn’t happy with, nothing to do with their doing just my personal preference and I have to say the waiter was AMAZING. I asked if I could switch it and he never quibbled he just changed my dish. I thanked him and told him how impressed I was in how accommodating he had been and that good service like that would for sure bring me back. I was too full for desserts but they looked heavenly so I’ll definitely go back to give those a try. Customer service is hard to find but they topped it here! Way to go!!!

This place was SO good. I’ve never gone into a restaurant and wanted literally everything on the menu. And we basically did just that we all ordered a bunch and just shared. Beer and sangria was also great. Only downside is we waited a long time from getting dessert menu to actually ordering dessert as well as our drinks were never refilled or asked if we wanted more alcohol/water. But still. 5 stars.

They did not realize we had a reservation. Service was 20 minutes before even being asked for a drink. Food took over 40 min

The food was overly salty, each dish had too much salt. And you could see salt on the edges of the plate. The staff was very friendly. Minus the salt the food is good, and dessert was delicious.

The atmosphere and the staff were very nice, but the service was pretty slow. I understand that this is a tapas restaurant, but I don't feel like the portion sizes matched the prices. I told the server that I was vegan and wasn't offered any accommodation. The one item on the menu that I could have was a beet salad, which was too simple for the price.

We went to an early Mother’s day celebration and it was perfect.
Very easy to get and free wide parking lot. Place was very quiet with excellent service and food was formidable.
I can recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
We will repeat it for sure

Love this place usually but was extremely disappointed with last visit. Regular waiter Russel is no longer there - he was a wealth of information about recommending great wine and food. One of the reasons we chose to return.
Our waitress was clueless about wine. Service was painfully slow even though restaurant was not even 1/3 full.
Don’t think we will be back for a long time.

For a tapas style restaurant, the food took a very long time (45+ minutes) after ordering and was served altogether. We waited another 20 minutes when ordering a few additional items. The food was average when it arrived.

Valentine’s Day dinner - nice offering for a four course meal. Dinner was good other than mine was cold. Busy night so understanding that that could happen. They remade my meal and it was delicious.

Very nice decor but that did not justify over paying for lackluster food. We ordered 5 plates and were overly unsatisfied with 4 of them and 1 of them was mediocre.

I would not recommend this place as there are much better tapas restaurants in the city.

Great setting and very kind and lovely server, knowledgeable with wine and food. The owner came by and checked to make sure everything was pleasant.
We had the sampler platter which consisted of three tapas (Calamari, Arancini, Meatballs) this fish had some flavorful tastes but there was only a couple tiny meatballs in a tomato sauce with peppers and sausage. Then we ordered another three individual tapas - AAA beef, flaming cheese and Aha Tuna - there were four adults. We didn’t care for the AAA beef dish with the garlic sauce, the flaming cheese was impressive but overall the portions were a bit pricy for the sizes.
I would recommend trying this cozy restaurant because of the ambience and the choices in Tapas and the selection of wines it’s very romantic and very clean.
