Service was impeccable. We were greeted by the owner and after making a wine selection for which he had a bottle open, offered to open a brand new one just for us. Wish him and his staff the best.

I was so impressed with the entire evening. The staff, the meal, the ambiance all came directly from Spain. Nothing was missed for sure. Each plate that arrived was just as tasty as the next. From appetizers, to entree, to dessert.
