Had a small birthday celebration here.
The restaurant is unusually shaped a triangle due to the location. There is a side room for large groups over 15 people. Parking is across street under the highway overpass. Bathroom is single person and has beautiful mosaic tile design. It is more attractive than the art in the main room.
Unusual artwork on the walls. Did not resonate as Spanish to me. It is nude female bodies in fluid like motion. Not detailed life-like nudes just outlines of bodies w hips and breasts. If they were trying for “Dalí esque” images they failed. I found the art distracting ugly. Plain walls or a painted mosaic pattern would be better than the phantom-like floating nude female bodies.
Management was helpful with details of the party. They called to confirm the date and time. They totally understood when we had to reschedule due to snow and ice. They set out balloons on the table so guests arriving before the birthday girl would know they were at the right table. They offered to seat people 15 minutes early. They brought out the pre ordered appetizers as guests waited for the birthday girl to arrive. They allowed me to bring a birthday cake in. They brought it out w a candle at the right time then they sliced the cake and served the guests.
Moderate amount of noise - music playing and other noises- plates, glassware..etc. Definitely not a romantic quiet place.
Sangria - they have red and white. I tried the red. It was very good. I prefer a little fruitier but it was good.
Tapas were good- best were shrimp, beef tenderloin, croquetas, patatas bravas had an excellent garlic sauce. We preordered a variety of tapas and they brought out several different ones. Tortilla was not served so I cannot say if it was good.
Paella- when I was in Spain the paella was not made with sofrito, but here it is. I did not care for the paella it had a sweet taste that seemed wrong to me. I don’t know if that was the sofrito or something else.
One paella was labeled as saffron rice and may have been the paella I was remembering, but it had lobster which I don’t care for so I didn’t order that one.
Overall, I felt like the Spanish cuisine had American influence-too much for me.
My teenage sons were hungry after the dinner. Even after birthday cake!
