    Cute place. Food is fine but not worth the prices.

    Amazing food, loved the fireplace. The bacon wrapped dates were out of this world! Loved the chicken tostones and chorizo in dough along w the risotto croquettes

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

    Overpriced, small portions and bad service

    ridiculously overpriced

    The food isn't bad - but the service is very sloppy.

    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!

    The flank steak salad and chorizo stuffed bacon wrapped dates are magical.

    order the spicy garlic shrimp with lime zest and a hugos garen. divine

    '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)

    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.

    Fireplace. Imperial beer from Costa Rica. Tostones que buena. Chimichuri skewers. Romantic.

    Chorizo-filled and bacon-wrapped dates - to die for

    Easier to get a table after 10pm

    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 :-(

    Cute place w/fireplace for 1st/2nd date only n not looking 4 quality tapas. Just a note to self:nxt time if I'm craving for good tapas,i'd better get real spanish tapas n not latin tapas! Dissapointed

    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

    The red sangria is amazing

    Chorizo and dates wrapped in bacon. 'nuff said.

    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!!!!

    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!

    Hannah Abbott · March 26, 2011
  • Brian H.

    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

    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.

    Nicole Anselmo · February 6, 2011
  • Jaime

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

    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.
