    The sangrias are both delicious! By far, the best part of our meal. Serradura is really good if you really have a sweet tooth. Flan isn't too good. The fruit sorbets are really good.

    The Sangria was good but the meat platter for a group to share was good.

    I absolutely love the parillada. It's a 2 person dish but 4 can order. What u do is ask for a side of their DELISH garlic spinach and something else so you won't get told it's only for 2 ppl. Enjoy

    The seafood paella is great, but the servers tend to be rude. I think it's because they are constantly overwhelmed.

    Horrible experience here. Made a reservation a week ahead. When we got there, they just shrugged their shoulders and said talk to the manager. Reservations don't mean anything to these people.
