    They have a ton of small plates to share with the table. The calamari, beef empanadas, and mashed potato balls (can't remember what they're actually called) are amazing.

    Just get out there and let your salsa dancing skills be seen. Don't worry if you don't dance well, most of the people dancing are all in the same boat. Just have fun!

    Mouthwatering dishes with lots of flavor. Tapas are always a hit - the calamari is salty spicy goodness. Skirt steak is big and magnificent. Get a caipirinha!

    I think I just found the "Best Thing I EvEr Ate". The tenderness of the lamb shank, the FRESH rosemary, the delicious black bean rice & the fried sugary plantains come together to take the title!!!!!!

    It's hard to find a good mojito. This place makes one of the better ones I've had, and they make their own simple syrup; perhaps the most important part of any mojito.

    Hey manager, don't stand with your back to me and talk to the hostess. Not cool to leave me standing waiting for someone to seat me when you're not even busy. Take care if your customers first.

    It's hard to decide between a ton of different tapas or an entree. Everything's delicious. A great place to share and try a little of everything, paired with a mojito or sangria of course.
