    The salad were delicious! The meatballs were DELICIOUS! The shrimp app was DELICIOSO! The lamb was Delicious! Strawberry Apple strudel - YES, please! But the best of it all was the wine list! I heart!

    gjelina steals their thunder, but the food here is great and there is no crazy wait. the ribeye, scallops with corn puree, and paella are my favorites. i like their elderberry white sangria too.

    Everything was really flavorful. We ordered WAY too much food, but enjoyed trying everything. Baby beet salad, sauteed tiger shrimp, roasted Scottish salmon, and patatas bravas were all delicious.

    The paella is exceptional & exquisite! The house tapenade & aioli are heavenly creatures! Love the backdoor patio for lunch dates & the dimly lit artsy front room is perfect for a dinner tryst.

    Must try the Bacon Wrapped Medjool Dates with Chorizo, Balsamic and Candied Walnuts or Braised Chipotle BBQ Beef Short Ribs with Apple Smoked Bacon and Caramelized Onions!

    when in doubt, this is where we end up: Bacon Wrapped Medjool Dates, Golden Beet Salad, Tuna Tartar, ... but most importantly: don't miss "Sangria Sundays" with those amazing "Primitivo Sliders": ) Read more

    elderflower white wine sangria. Prettiest sangria ever because it sparkles. Yeah, it sparkles.

    The food seemed cheap and prepared long ago even though it was quite expensive! The wine was good, but also not cheap. Nice people, but a little bit too busy.

    Love all the cool paintings! Many of them are early works by the amazing artist Natalia Fabia.

    food is average. tapas are ok.avoid the steak. I ordered it medium rare but it tasted bone dry and barely any flavor. atmosphere varies depending on where you're seated so shoot for the back room.

    If you order glasses of wine at the bar while waiting for a table expect to pay taxes on top of list price. I get it, bit who does that? The bacon wrapped dates *are* great though.

    Chef changed in May 2012. No more sangria Sundays and they don't serve food between 4pm and 5pm.

    White Italian white was very light, it tasted like it had water in it (I'm Italian and I know how it should taste!)

    Avoid the place. Mediocre food at best and over priced. Walk down to Gjelina instead.
