    Went for date night on a Monday, good after work crowd of professionals. Waitress was nice but never got her name. Red sangria with pomegranates was AWESOME!! The prawns delicious too.

    Amazing ambiance. Tres leches was divine. Half off wine bottles on Tuesdays is an amazing deal!

    They open at 5 pm on Sundays. Also, Newark restaurant week is going on right now until the 17th (i believe) and they have a special. Go try!! If you are going in for tapas, try the potatoes!
