Nick went above and beyond in his service to us. We asked for something on the menu that he could not provide and he the went about making something specific for us. This is definitely a place to visit.

My friend and I had a great night - delicious tapas, including the best, most tender calamari I have ever eaten. The staff were very friendly and attentive and overall service was great. The live entertainment was fantastic and added to the our experience. Such a cool place to spend a Friday night.
