Went there on a Tuesday evening and was seated immediately. We ordered the Pan a la Cantana, Albonigas de Cordero,Paella Mixta, Pulpo la Gallega, Canelones de la Huerta for dinner. They were very delicious especially Canelones de la Huerta and the cheese. The dessert de Luca sponge cake was very rich and help end the meal well. Be forewarned the... More

There are definitely better tapas places in DC, like Barcelona. Service was bad. The food was good and they had a good wine menu though, and the location is excellent.

The food was good. I was in a party of about 40 people. We had two long tables. One of the tables left about a half hour earlier than the second table. At the end of the night after we received our food bills another bill came for ALL OF THE DRINKS FOR THE ENTIRE party. The bill was huge... More

Went here for dinner (which was during happy hour) before a Capitals game with another couple. Every tapa we ordered was delicious, and their sangria was great too. The prices were also fantastic during happy hour. It's a great place to go before a game, it had a fun atmosphere. Definitely going back!

This was our absolute favorite happy hour in DC. Now...I don't think I'll be going back again. Let's move past the fact that our waiter came back three times to remember what we ordered, and then still managed to have things on our bill that we didn't order. The biggest thing was that the happy hour menu changed. No more... More

Stopped by attracted by the healthy food claims the place made and wasn't disappointed. They offer an amazing variety of natural juices and healthy wraps and panini. The portobello panini was perfect with the right balance of creamy and crunchy. The lady at the counter, once the place was less busy, stopped by by chair to ask me how the... More

The food here is mediocre. Dishes recommended by the waiters — most of whom strutted around like peacocks and were not attentive unless you were a large group who may leave a large tip — as very good to have were lousy. The prices are expensive than other restaurants in the area, and the Tapas plate selections are certainly may... More

Bring back the potatoes to our favorite Buey del Dia (steak) please! This dish is our eternal favorite and we have seen the steak and its accompanying potato change from small potatoes, to mashed to puree. Still our favorite but we loved the old way it was served. This visit was really cold as the heat inside could not keep... More
