    One of the hidden gems of the South Loop and downtown in general. Friendly and efficient service, which is hard to get these days. Delicious variety of small plates for sharing. This place would be jammed on the north side. Hot and cold tapas which include yummy sea food dishes. The crab with avocado on toast is amazing! One of our favorite places to visit with family and friends.

    We went here before a concert at soldier field. It was a great location as we had a comfortable 15-20 minutes walk from there. The food was excellent with a good selection of tapas and also some entree options. Our server was friendly and helpful, although he didn’t follow up with us much after we ordered. Other servers brought the food and extra water so we were still taken care of. Overall the experience was very good and I look forward to going back!

    We sat outside and our waiter was awesone - very attentive, food came out quickly on a friday night. We had ordered 3 tapas and a paella and we could have done without the paella as we were full by that time - we each had a spoonfull and then took it home

    Celebrated my birthday here, and everything was AMAZING! All of my friends were impressed by every tapa plate (they wanted to order 2 of each tapa). We ordered about 12 tapas and paella - everything was delicious. The red sangria was also wonderful. The waitress, Sheena was amazing and fun- she made the bday extra special!

    The food was delicious and the server Sheena tried very hard to be attentive but it took over an hour and a half to get any food out of the kitchen We were there for 3 hours I imagine the kitchen was completely understaffed If you have northing to do and not very hungry The paella is delicious but took 2 hours to get it

    Waiter was very passive aggressive and making jokes going too far. I was very uncomfortable and did not enjoy my dining experience at all. Because of her I will not come back anymore as a repeat customer. I don’t even know if she realized how unprofessional she was coming across.

    The staff was super friendly and nice. The restaurant was clean, organized, and beautifully designed. Music wasn’t too loud. And the music selection was great! The food was delicious, everything is well worth the price, and it is kid-friendly. My children loved it, and we would definitely eat there again. I was only able to get one photo of the food because we were too quick to jump in when everything started to come out.
