My goodness, what a fabulous restaurant! We were entertained by our family to celebrate. The food was spectacular & the waitstaff was superb. Our favorite dish ( even by our teen-aged grandsons) was the lima bean, fava bean, avocado salad.

The restaurant is amazing - delicious food, excellent service. A very nice place for a romantic dinner. It's not cheap, but totally worth it. White sangria and madre e hijo were our favourites!
