Loved the food, ambiance and conversation with our waitress. Our late dinner (close to 11 PM) was great fun.

in Spanish, Rayuela invites skipping around the menu to sample a host of South American specialities. Heavy on the pork and seafood, they have some of the best of both we have had in a long time. Appetizers are plentiful and many may be new...More

We tried several items off of the restaurant week menu. Every dish was very very good. There are some excellent crafted cocktails available to complement your meal. The decor is lovely, and this is a great spot for a date night.

We loved everything - the food, the service and the live Spanish music. We hadn't booked and we were in a hurry but the wait staff made us feel really welcome and important and the meal was memorable

The coming up roses drink was very unique, pretty, and delicious. Everything we had during restaurant week, steak and salmon were very good. I'm so glad they participated in restaurant week, it was a great meal and great time.

Our experience included an arrogant waiter, a bland chicken dinner, loud music that sounded like a drum machine on a 10 minute loop, a blast of cold air every time the door was opened, and very uncomfortable chairs. Not worth the $100 for two mains...More

We went here for brunch this past weekend. We had the Urban Daddy deal for an entree and unlimited sangria for $25/person. The sangria shipment was delayed so there was only one kind available for a good portion of our brunch. The sangria itself was...More
