We enjoyed our dinner. My wife had Seafood Paella. Her Mom had Shrimp and Cheese Grits. I had Crispy Skin Salmon and a salad. All were delicious. Service was prompt and courteous. The ambiance was exceptional and a refreshing change from typical downtown restaurants.

Have been here in the past, but it’s been awhile. The best thing is everything is still great, food, service and ambiance. Love tapas so you can try so many different things.
