They were out of Gambas al Ajillo which seemed odd as it’s a classic tapa and they had shrimp and garlic, maybe they were out of olive oil? The artichokes and Serrano ham seemed steamed versus sautéed as described and were tasteless and where was...More

Decent late evening snack. Not exceptional, but have had better. Nachos were pretty much average. Fried chicken/ham with bechamol sauce were ok. Scallop dish good. Louder than normal. 3 ate snack for $50.

The salad, steak, shrimp, tomato bread were OUT OF THIS WORLD. Wish we would have had the array of sangrias offered, too. Get in an UBER and head to Chinatown. Across the street from the movie theater. No excuses. This place is excellent.
