Yeah, this place isn't my usual place. But when I'm interested in splurging a little, it's an excellent place to splurge. Service has always been spectacular. It's quiet, amazing food (seriously), and an enjoyable experience.

This was our first visit here. Erroneously thinking Spanish food would be upscale Mexican food, we were delighted to find flavorful but not spicy dishes. Steak was cooked to order, my salmon was moist, and everything was beautifully presented.

A hidden gem in the midst of mostly homes in Holladay. The menu reflects the unique flavors of Spain, and they offer wonderful appetizers. Sometimes go for wine and appetizers only they are so delicious and fun to sample the variety of options. In warmer...More

The day before Valentines was a perfect day to go. Still, make reservation. We had great service from a few servers, one of whom brought us bread to sop up the sauce from the bacon wrapped plums! Delicious. A great place for fine dining if...More
