My boyfriend and I are both servers, we are super easy going and always tip really well. We had just finished a busy Easter brunch shift and decided to stop by here for a quick shot on our way home. We've been at least 4 times before and always leave more money than the included 17.5% grat (which apparently goes... More

The French baquette comes with delicious dipping sauces; the chicken tapas are xlnt, and the garlic potatas were hot and tasty.

Music was way to loud, me and friends could not even hear each other. We were so blown out not being able to even talk, only one person ordered some wine and that took a while to get.

We loved the authenticity of the Spanish food and the drinks are great. As for the atmosphere, I think this one falls into the category of feeling like your eating in a bar, more than a restaurant. It needs to be cleaned up and classed up a lot.

Hubby and I went there one afternoon to enjoy the happy hour. We placed our order and enjoyed the atmosphere while waiting for our food. All of a sudden, the electricity went out. We probably sat there for twenty minutes (no one came to our table) and I flagged down a member of the waitstaff. I asked if the food... More

I enjoy having drinks and tapas at Turquoise. The environment is classy and comfortable and fun. There is always live music at night and the service and food are professional. Try the absinthe!

Bar happy hour is fantastic. Food yummy and exceptional value. With at least 5 kinds of sangria. But check out Sunday night jazz from 5-8 ish. Such a find - even for a local.
