Everything we had was delicious, though the Paella Negra, Calamari, Pan con Tomate, Brussels , and Desert Trio were the standouts! Service was exceptional too! Definitely gave us good taste of Spain. We’ll definitely be back!

                                                            Really great food. The service was lacking. Many workers but few check ins. Our waiter didn’t check in on us; others brought our food and drinks out. At the end we ordered dessert and they brought it out without silverware; had to get our own.

                                                            We had a great time and a good dinner. It was fun to try different dishes. Favorites were the cauliflower (amazing), a salmon dish, and the calamari. The specialty cocktails were tasty too. Our waiter was terrific but most impressive was the fact that several different servers brought various dishes/drinks and not once had to ask "who got what." They knew! Only negative for the four of us was the noise level. It was definitely off-the-charts loud! Hope to return but thnk we'd choose to sit outdoors.

                                                            Love the place and food and have been coming quite often. But please don’t assign us the same server again (older Asian lady). Not attentive, had to wave her down multiple times, and at the end was just rushing us to leave despite having not stayed past one hour.

                                                            Fantastic food and ambience, and the wine recommendation was spot on. But the service flow was a bit chaotic, wasn’t sure if we had a dedicated server - but ended up needing to flag down servers other than the one who initially greeted us upon arriving at our table.

                                                            Used to like this place very much. Good food, organized staff and reasonable price. But disappointed this time with the service. Looks like they hired new staffs but without enough training. Wrong dishes came a couple of times and realized the dish I ordered did not even show up on the table after we left. It was a mess.

                                                            We had 8 of the appetizers. Had a non alcoholic mojito, Catalan Gin and tonic, and Teleferic Sangria. Croquetas were okay, the seafood items were excellent. This was our first time, next time will try the Paella. This restaurant is very high-energy and sometimes hard to hear. Overall a fun place to go to and has excellent food and services.

                                                            This is my 4th time here and had good experiences. But this time the quality of the food is not the same. Perhaps it is a different chef? Appetizer, Ham Croquetas is good and dipping sauce on the side side dish - Brussels Sprouts. this time was very salty and oily. Perhaps the chef made it too heavy and salty Main dish - Paella Mixta. Very heavy taste this time and added more much more meat. We end up only to eat 1/2 portion due to the heavy taste, salty and oily with way more pork belly and pork all inside the dish. Can hardly even get much of the rice at all!! Hopefully it is just the matter of the chef on duty and next time can be the same as my previous experiences. Waiting service was only 2 stars because I was dying for a refill of my water and no one waited and unable to wave down anyone. Then we ordered 2 cups of coffee with desserts, it took 30 minutes after we already finished the desserts. Waved down the waiter and the bus boy 2X and still nothing came. Disappointed.
