Tried Sunday brunch and was amazed; food choices were 'right-on' and everything tasted great from appetizers to main course. Drinks, however, were another matter as the pricing was out-of-line vis-a-vis the atmosphere and venue (simply put-OVERPRICED). So, you will never be disappointed with the food (menu items or 'specials') and service definitely has improved as well

Was not at all impressed with the food, place or service. The place is ridiculously overpriced for what they serve you on the plate. Every dinner entrée is $25 or more with little food on the plate. They want to come across as if they are a high end restaurant when they really aren't. Can get the same south American... More

I wish I could give this a better rating because the food is excellent. However the service is not so wonderful. We have been there a few times and each time the dining room is fairly empty. We always have to wait a few minutes to be seated and then wait again for a waiter to take a drink and... More

Second time I've eaten at this restaurant on Main Street and both times the food was excellent. Started with a couple of appetizers, then my colleague & I split a salad and some beef skewers. The drinks, although a bit high in price by Dallas standards, were quite good. I'll definitely return on future business trips to Norwalk.

I went there with the family and some out of town guest. Overall the food quality was very good, and presented in a clean and posh. overall some of the better Spanish food I have had in some time. The place was very clean and service very attentive. As for value for your dollar, I think they try to nickel... More

Brasitas was great from the fried plantain chips that are served upon siting throughout the meal. My friend ordered a shrimp salad and I ordered the shrimp quesadillas and both were very good. There was a bit too much cheese in the quesadilla for me but I realize that most people will love that so I would recommend them. Knowing... More

Food was very good... Roasted beet salad and the trio of empanadas were tender and delicious. The banana plantains and salsa was outstanding. My disappointment was not with the food but with the service. After 20 minutes, my friend had to flag down the hostess so we could place our order. The wait time was ok, but once our food... More

Bit of unusual (for us) food in Norwalk. friendly service, We tried (and shared) a number of starters and main courses. The plantain and salsa that they start you with was quite good - but don't fill up on that. The fish was good and the skirt steak was great. Different types of empanadas as starters work well for sharing.

This restaurant continues to serve excellent and consistently good and imaginative cuisine. The plaintains that are served when you are seated are a great salty accompaniment to a caipirinha, sangria, mojito or any of the drinks. We had an assortment of empanadas for a starter and the dinner specials -- pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon and the branzino perfectly cooked... More
