Mushy octopus, weird decor/vibe, rookie waitstaff. Seating uncomfortable. Delish shrimp appetizer. Live music was nice. Limited wine menu.

The food was delicious, the staff was attentive, and the live music was wonderful. Highly suggest the patatas bravas. Not a traditional style but super tasty

I have been eating lunch here for many years , if you want great spanish food this is the best in downtown without a doubt. The food is all good but my favorite is the roast pork, yellow rice. Try it you'll be back.

Just saw this but thought I would chime in. We had a function where several people were gluten free and they were willing and able to accommodate. Their vegetable paella was a big hit too!
