Two very nice dining areas. Nice selection of local wines. (Ask to try, before you buy). Waiter was attentive but not overly so. The Carnitas Rellenos were very good. nice crispy coating. Could use a little extra sauce. My wife had a Jamaican Sea food? She liked it a lot. The Bread Pudding was amazing.

we really enjoyed our Latin dinner here. We ordered Seafood Curry, empanadas, and duck confit tamalas. All delicious. The service was excellent, the owner came by the table and said hi. I would love to go back and try more dishes!

Great food and excellent service. My husband and I went here for dinner based on TA reviews and we were not disappointed! We were seated promptly. Our server Javier was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. We ordered the coriander Mahi Mahi with vegetables and salad with a lime cilantro dressing. YUM! It was all delicious. Perfectly cooked, a beautiful presentation and... More

Upscale food in relaxing atmosphere. Service was great - everything very tasty. A little bit of an echo with the high ceiling, but very acceptable.

The food was so good that we ate there two nights in a row. There was a delicious catus and mushroom soup, the carne asana tacos were wonderful. The bite sized pieces of meat were bursting with flavor, and even the veggies that came with the plate were nicely spiced with some paprika, chili, and we all loved them. There... More

Lovely atmosphere, interesting concept, no follow through. Menu is a tad pretentious as is the staff. I was there on a girls night out with two friends and we were excited to try this place. Our waitress was rude and inattentive, the kitchen was out of several small plates ( at 6:30 pm!) and the food we did taste had... More

i was a little hesitant when I booked dinner for our group Saturday night. But it was great. Just perfect for the end of a nice wine tasting tour. Staff was friendly and helpful. We wanted a quiet area so they put us upstairs which was perfect. Several of us got their special soup of the night - tomatillos with... More

Estrella is located across from the City park. The ambiance sets the tone. Latin with a twist. We tried the tapas menu and it was brilliant. Choose 5 dishes between 4 of us. Javier was extremely helpful. The food was delicious. Leave room for desert. The Latin bread pudding was excellent!

We had a dinner reservation for a group of 8 friends at a local pub, Paddy McGregors, but when we got there we were immediately blasted with an uncomfortable level of noise and uncomfortable seating. Not being at all what we had in mind, we gave our apologies and left. We happened on Estrella and although we did not have... More

We started with the Tres Empanada. It has 3 small empanadas, perfect amount for a good taste of them. Nothing special and definitely needed the chipotle sauce for flavor…but the meat was tender. We shared the Argentinean Ribeye and we're glad we just ordered one entree to share. This was a VERY large meal. It was flavorful and very good.... More
