Delicious Tapas

A great tapas restaurant with lots of delicious choices. Consider ordering one of the Tapas sampler trays and adding in additional plates. Excellent service and extensive beverage menu. We were very impressed!

We were in a rather large group and ordered (I think) about 10-12 tapas, not surprisingly, they were all very delicious. We tried some of the exotic ones (oxtail, and veal tongue in wine sauce) which were very nice. The skewered beef tenderloin was very well-prepared and juicy. My favorite drink with tapas is sangria, you have to try it... More

Service was a bit slow to start, even though there appeared to be a number of wait staff. We ordered our drinks and also some tapas. My beer was very cold and refreshing (Pacifico) and my wife said her Blood Orange Margarita was very tasty. One of our tapas, Calabacines Rellenos con Setas (zucchini with wild mushrooms topped with blue... More

I was unfamiliar with a Tapas menu and probably should have gotten some recommendations before I went there. The atmosphere was excellent. It would probably be a good place for a party.

Came here the day after Thanksgiving with extended family - party of 5. Pros - they were able to easily accommodate a bigger party immediately and the way the menu is set up, it is great for sharing with a group. The atmosphere was nice and since we were in a large booth, it cut off some of the noise... More

This was our third or so visit to Mi Luna and as before we enjoyed our dinner. Our server Arden was attentive and enthusiastic and although it was busy he was on point with all of our requests. We enjoyed numerous tapas plates with our favorite being the smoked salmon. The only down side was that we missed the live... More

Every dish we ordered was delicious. Some were perfectly spicy, all incredibly flavorful and juicy. The bottles of wine were $10 each. Fantastic calamari. Combine that with the $30 for $60 worth of food coupon and you have a steady feast on your hands between a few friends. Also, some live music (spanish or something?) and an excellent patio. If...

Visited Mi Luna twice in the last six months...once on a Friday night and the other visit on a Sunday afternoon. The atmosphere was like night and day! Friday night is crazy, loud with live music and bustling. Sunday afternoon was quiet, laid back and perfect for families. On the Friday night visit, we sat out on the patio, had... More

We love tapas and were not disappointed in the flavors and choices here. It was buy two, get one free (from the happy hour menu), but our waiter wasn't clear on that it seemed. We had the fried, stuffed olives (delicious), beef empanadeas (a great sweet flavor to the beef), brussel sprouts with balsamic vinegar (great and I don't usually... More

We dined with a party of fourteen on a Saturday night (with advanced reservations!) and noted there were other large parties there as well. The restaurant was loud and bustling even though we arrived at 6:00 pm. The live music was setting up as we left at 8:00 pm. It was a festive atmosphere. Our server was professional and service...
