    Ask for Melissa! So many great plates but my favs are The flank steak small plate and the "low-fat" chorizo stuffed dates wrapped in bacon & short ribs. Oh... And of course the Rioja. Enjoy!!!!

    This place is a my go-to spot, especially in the winter when there is a blazing fire and the warmth provided by the the wine and empanadas and the clay pot makes the winter blue melt away

    'the fox' cocktail - tequila and passion fruit. Goes down super smooth...and ask them to make it spicy (pinch of chipotle - if you want a little kick)

    Decent food, terrible terrible service- not worth the trade off. Been there numerous times and each time the waiter acts like we're burdening them and even ignores the table. THE WORST-esp for groups!

    For tapas, go elsewhere. We ordered 3 plates with chorizo, and all were burned. Service on a Friday night was poor -- our service seemed to be annoyed that we were ordering several rounds of food.

    Amazing food, pretty much every item on the Tapas menu is perfect. The clay pot dinners with peppers are awesome! Sangria is very good as well. S

    POOR SERVICE. We ordered THREE times and they kept missing our order. After half an hour of waiting, food never arrived. Instead, the waiter came to ask us to move to a new table :-(

    A new fave place of mine! The dishes are small but are delicious and taste really fresh. Try the mini empanadas and the crab cakes. Yum!

    I would skip this place. The calamari and chorizo was bad and over cooked in burnt sauce. Empanadas were good but not great and not worth the trip back.

    Hospitality like this is almost unheard of. If you make friends with Melissa, the Chef/Owner, you might be able to order off the menu - a treat.

    Comfy and warm inside, and the sangria is sweet and tasty. The beef empanadas are the best!

    The atmosphere with all the candles and the fireplace is amazing. And they're playing Björk and Massive Attack, loving it!
