Amelia gave us some good suggestions and the duck confit was delicious, as were the beets and wild boar ragout. The tapas were top notch, very creative and the service was superb. Delicious dinner.

Chosen for a birthday celebration, it couldn't have been better. We selected a variety of menu offerings and shared. Portions were generous and service was very good. A bonus was that we arrived during "happy hour" and enjoyed lots of sangria!

Wonderful food. For us a new and fresh perspective on tapas. Flavorful preparation of green beans with dates, almonds, paprika and lemon. Very earthy and satisfying. The Guisantes with peas, potato purée and mint was unexpected and so tasty. Great beverage/drink list. Service was attentive...More

We met a friend from the West Coast here. We started with Happy Hour drinks of sangria and Tempranillo wine and ordered an assortment of tapas (maybe too many) for the 5 of us to share. Everything was delicious. We had prompt friendly service from...More
