"Meh....paella was decent ....appetizers were fine. Wine was the best deal.....tempranillo. no complaints but not outstanding flavors or preparation. Paellas was a 3.5 star deal. Service staff were prompt and attent but had no personality...barely spoke. Place was near 90 degrees...I sneaked out and propped the entrance door open because staff did nothing. Noise became unbearable in the smaller room which they crammed full before seating people in their other room....then the dude with guitar started playing at the tables...not exactly talented."

"We had a lovely dinner, we hadn't seen each other in a while and the restaurant was perfect for lingering over food and wine. The tapas were nice portions - the standouts were the shrimp, artichoke, and bacon wrapped dates."

"I used to go with my father to this club 50 years ago. We owned a restaurant a few doors away. I was disappointed in the paella. I will try it again however. Everyone has a bad night. I like what most Gallego's and other Spaniards like a perfectly cooked Paella. That is, the bottom of the pan charred but the rice slightly alienate and with some liquid left. That's hard to do with a single paella pan. We will see next. The waiting team was fine for a neighborhood place. My friends have raved about the place. That's why I will try it again."

"This place is old fashioned Spanish. At least half of our fellow diners were Spaniards. It's not glamorous or trendy, maybe just the opposite. And delicious."

"I made the reservation on opentable at 9:30 to arrive at 10:30 (they were closing at 11). We got there (2 of us) earlier before 10:15 and there was only one occupied table (they were finished). We probably should have left when the server (while seating us) asked if we wanted paella before we sat down or even looked at a menu. The few staff were trying to get out and rushed us through the meal. We tried 3 tapas and paella. The grilled sardines were very good. The croquettas and octopus tapas were bland. Descent paella, but with no atmosphere and the rush to get out we were disappointed. If they didn't want to seat late tables they should not have made one available through open table."

"I went here with a group of 7 people on a Friday night and they seated us right away. The service was great and large pitchers of sangria are only $28. We ordered 3 different tapas, 2 paellas, and a meat and cheese platter and it was great for a light meal for 7!"
