“Good place to eat and dance later at night!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

its a good place to go later night to eat a dinnner and dance with a live music band playing music as salsa, cumbia salsa, merengue, some hip hop. this is a really busy restaurant and some times is hard to find a table. Its preferable to call ahead or make a reservartion! waitreses are really good! always checking on you if everything is ok!

“One of my favorite Tapa's Places”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

I started going to Mi Luna's roughly 3 years ago for happy hour and ever since then, I can't stop going back. The atmosphere in this place is very nice, old time Spaniard stylish, the décor really matches the type of restaurant. The food here is very good if you like small plates. You can get full size plates but the idea is "sample" style portions of food with your drinks. If you go on Wednesdays, you'll have the opportunity to enjoy live entertainment from Flamenco dancers (Solero Flamenco). The service is good (not great) but all in all, excellent place for Happy Hour. My favorite dish here is the crab cakes but I'll take the salmon as a close second!

“Good Food, Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Mi Luna is crowded, even in the middle of the week.. Only way to make a booking for less than 8 people is through Open Table. The noise level in the restaurant makes it difficult to carry on a conversation, you have to shout across the table. The food is good, try the crispy croquettes stuffed with spinach and 2 different cheeses. The Pollo Relleno is good too. There is a very large selection of Tapas. There are nightly specials on the alcohol menu... wine, sangria etc. Definitely a fun place to hang out with friends.

“Graduation Celebration”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

The tapas were very good. Reservation was ready when we arrived and we had a large party. Our waiter (Mr. M) was very attentive and had good suggestions for the vegan in the party.

“Great environment and food!”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

The service is great, but I guess that the most important was the food (very different options!) and the environment - great music and decorations. The potato crocketts are out o this world!!!!!
