I was with my husband and we asked for an appetizer Grill Octopus and we got less than two grams for $22. I will not go back there.

A deceptively large place is a great addition to Dayton. Drink menu was fresh and food fabulous. Had the catch of the day, friend had sea bass. Both were fantastic. Beef empanadas to start were delightful. Good for large parties, or quick bite.

Same creative menu, good service, nice decor. I was a big fan before the fire so I’m still a fan. What has changed are the prices, especially for the salads and appetizers. It’s now listed as a $$$$ place and I think it was $$$...More

New lighting, new menu, same outstanding wait staff. Lovely new interior is delightful, but tile floor makes for a noisier atmosphere. Beef empanadas were divine as was quinoa salad.
