As they say, it was "great from soup to nuts" Both the service and atmosphere were excellent. Couldn't ask for more

Definitely, this restaurant warrants many returns in order to sample such wonderful preparations. And to top off the meal, a... More

We went to this restaurant because of an assignment I was doing with a culinary class. It was so much fun. We had an excellent server named Casey! He was knowledgeable and very friendly. He listened and interacted with my children and gave great advice on what to order. We had some tapas for starters and we ordered the Paella... More

This is a posh palace with ambiance. The bar is small and sleek; the perfect pit-stop while you wait for your table. The food is delectable and gives you the feeling you were just transplanted to a different time and place. The seating is truly unique with high rounded booths that offer you a secluded and personal experience, which is... More

First experience with Tapas and will definitely go again! Great service and food was excellent. I want to try their Paella next time. The BBQ Pork and Scallop Tapas were quite delicious. Their steak dishes also very good. My wife loved their Truffle Mashed Potatoes.

We were traveling through this area on a road trip. This restaurant was a good fine. Although it doesn't look fancy from the outside the atmosphere is very nice we had a very pleasant waiter Juan who was very knowledgeable about wine and gave us a good suggestion. The four of us ordered paella which was $50 and it definitely... More

I think the service and the food are wonderful. Everything that we ordered was delicious! Our waitress timed everything so that we had enough time between the tapas. I went there for lunch the first time. The second time I went for dinner and the food was unique and they had a variety of options for our party of five.... More

Everything looked amazing, so I called and explained, to the girl who answered the phone, that I had a Groupon and wanted to place an order for takeout.... More

This was our first time here and we were impressed with the food, but not with the service. We ordered a variety of tapas, and all were interesting and tasty. Nice presentation. Our waiter greeted us shortly after we were seated, asked if we had been there before, told us he would get us some water and come back and... More
