Good Paella

Ate dinner on the patio with live music about 7pm. Ordered the Valencia paella to share with Gambas Al Ajillo and Pan Boli tapas as an appetizer. Gambas and Pan Boli were very good. The paella was served in a very hot skillet. Looked fabulous. The flavor was great and spiced very well. The... read more

The food was incredible, we ordered several different tapas and we were not let down. The paella was just as I hoped it would taste delicious, it was very authentic. The only downside was the service was slow and waiter didn't communicate or was attentive. I would return again for the food and hope to get better service.

As we arrived, we were greeted at the door by the Owner and Chef, Joseph Gutierrez. We had additions to our reservations (6 instead of 4), and he immediately accommodated us with a wonderful table on the patio, opening another door to provide us a few of the interior where the Flamenco Dancer was performing. Our server was equally accommodating... More

We had 3 courses from the Restaurant Week menu starting with wonderful warm rolls with amazing aioli and outstanding tapas. We had Guindilla pepper Shrimp, Garlic mushrooms with cream sherry, Adobo glazed grilled beef tenderloin brochette, Rosemary goat cheese stuffed dates wrapped in apple bacon and Crab Stuffed Piquillo Peppers. Each one was more amazing than the other. We have... More

We had a hard time finding this place. Navigator said it was there, but could NOT see it because it does not face the street, but is sort of on a little plaza. We also had to pay to park at a rather inconvenient location. We were there to see the Flamenco dancing - I'd seen it in Madrid before... More

I was visiting a good friend and we decided to stop in Tapas Papa Fritas on a whim as we were walking by...ultimately on our way to Olive and Ivy. Even though it was not busy (and not busy for our entire stay), the host made a bit of a point about not having a reservation. Another server came by,... More

We showed up at 7pm without a reservation. The hostess seemed put out that we didn't have a reservation and I think would have turned us away. The main waiter intercepted and we were shown to a table outside overlooking the water. There were tables open then, and even after we had been seated for an hour so not sure... More

We have traveled to Spain and this is the first restaurant in the US that the food tasted so close to what we had in Spain. We had an assortment of tapas, garlic shrimp, asparagus, olives, steak can't remember the name, small sausages and of course paella. The paella was fantastic and we ate way to much of the great...

What's not to like in this superb Spanish restaurant! The food is authentic tasty and well priced. The staff are friendly and attentive. We lucked out as we were there on Saturday night and the group and dancers were on and they are quite brilliant. First time in a while that I have been able to enjoy a real Cortado... More

They are located in a kind of square near the canal. We sat outside at a rustic table. It was a beautiful night and there was music we ordered drinks and of course food. OMG the food was amazing. They kept bringing out plate after plate and I tried it all. It was delish! I could have sat there, sipped... More
