Out of three nights we went there twice. The food is great so is service. We saw a number of locals there having dinner after work. The restaurant is large so it was a plenty of privacy at the table.

Tasty creative appetizers and entrees. More of a tapa joint or bistro then a fine dining full restaurant. Don’t go very hungry. Prices are reasonable so share an extra appetizer or entree. More Mediterranean then Latin. Small cocktails. Fast friendly professional service.

Contemporary menu, fresh ideas inspired by great ingredients. Service is timely and well suited to the atmosphere. Saddest day was when Walter’s stopped serving lunch.

I'd love to give Walter's a better rating but they just didn't cut it for our anniversary dinner. The food plates were small and my scallops were undercooked after I specifically asked they be well done. I cannot stand when they take away your plate...More
