This was our first time to this restaurant and we waited for 15 minutes and no server ever came to us. Finally I had to get up and flag one down. That should never happen in a restaurant. The food was very good .

This is a great place for lunch or dinner with friends. The Spanish theme is fun and charming, the service is great, and everything I've eaten there is delicious. The outdoor area is the best in the area, in a shaded courtyard.
