Extremely friendly service. Great selection of classic tapas plus some modern variations on classics. Very comfortable dining room. Good wine list with some nice gems especially from Spain. You can get a real feel for Spanish cuisine here at very fair prices. Iwill be back.

The food was colorful and flavorful, service was excellent and Chef John came out to visit and talk to us. He made sure everything was up to our expectations and gave the birthday girl a free soup and dessert!

We have been coming here for years. The outside of the building is inexpressive, but the interior is cozy and stylishly funky. John has years of high end restaurant chef experience and does an excellent job of continually updating the tapas meat and seafood. Victor...More
