Based on reviews we thought would be a good time to experiment and try something different. Was passing by another day and the place looked very confy, with a lot of people enjoying their time. So we gave a try... Bad choice today... Service was...More

The servings here are very small so you will definitely want to order maybe 5 dishes of food! But, it is very delicious as well. I like the outdoor section which enables you to eat as you enjoy the fresh air and mild activity as...More

We drove down to Evanston for our wedding anniversary dinner. I'd given them my first and last name for our reservation, but the person on the phone only wrote down my first name, so there was a bit of confusion when we arrived. Small demerit....More

Amazing tapas with great sangria. Must try the goat cheese dip, any of the pizzas, and the potato salad. So many delicious dishes!

Have been here 4 or 5 times in the last few months. Love the bacon wrapped dates and the paella. Great margaritas, wines and a good selection of beers. Love that you can order as many or few plates as you want. Very reasonably priced.

Nice atmosphere and good food. Though more meal-sized than bite-sized. We took stuff home. The place was packed and we happened to get seated by the door so it was very drafty. But we managed. Good company and nice waitstaff made for a delightful evening.

No. But what age child? Have you gone to their website? They have a full menu on it. Except when our children were infants, we never had a problem finding something on an 'adult' menu that they could eat. So I suggest you... More
