Place is very nice but busy at all times. Customer service is superb. Place specializes in fancy Spanish tapas which were all very good. Their wine list is huge with a large selection from different parts of the world.

So many choices...went with tapas and a sturdy Rioja Alta. Pork belly was decadent, eggplant caponata superb, charred snap peas the very unexpected highlight! Skip the meatballs- dense and a bit dry. Overall a wonderful experience.

This is a fun place to go to. The atmosphere is exciting and the crowd friendly. Service was good as well. My only issue was the noise level made normal conversation nearly impossible. I hate shouting at each other.
