“Great find for a whole in the wall!!”
Reviewed April 26, 2011

Went on a Friday night to listen to the jazz it was a great time. Despite the other reviews we wanted to try it as there's not too many places with live jazz, Richmond is non-smoking now so smoke was not an issue. We weren't going to order food but the waitress brought us a menu and helped figure out some great tapas. The tapas didn't seem like your typcial small american plates that every other restuarant is doing but real spanish tapas. The menu is a bit overwhelming but the wait staff was very helpful. There seemed to be something for everyone.

The jazz was great to listen to and the band did a great job entertaining the entire place... towards the end of the night the main singer went around and had everyone participate in her closing song. HIGHLY ENTERTAINING!! The decor was lacking a little but the people and music made up for it!!

“Big Dissapointment”
Reviewed February 22, 2009

The broad street location is very ratty, and looks like a scene out of a dangerous public housing project, stay away...
