Have been twice, both on Wednesdays. Loved the intimate music experience, wine selection (great Spansh wine this go-round), and the food overall. Every food order has been spot-on in taste, and tonight's server, Philip, went out of his way to make us feel welcome and happy. Almost best of all, NO valet. The Hummus is tops. The atmosphere is smart,... More

To top it off, their crime brûlée and cappuccino were outstanding. There is a small musical group that provides great music as well. Menu is not the... More

We just happened upon this new place after dinner so I can't review the food. Sounds of LIVE Flamenco guitar drew us in immediately! Tonights entertainment was provided by the owner of this establishment. Very unique and interesting guy. Although the place is only 3 months old, he has successfully created an intimate atmosphere for small social gatherers. All enterntainers... More

Empanadas over fried... More
