It was actually my first experience there, and my highlight has to be the interior decor. While the service is efficient, it may appear as too quick, as more often than not the waiters (at least two of them) were in a hurry to take care of my order and not listen to the details. Nonetheless the food was on time and the portions for the main meals were generous. I hear the tapas is quite a mean serving, so if you're hungry, go for the lunch meals which happen to be served all round. I hear they have Salsa and other delightful theme nights. It's a nice place to grab an evening drink, have an intimate meet with a loved one or close friends.
Nice service, I was impressed that the waiter was right there with my ordering by the Spanish item names., and he was sweet to my son who was dining with us. Good ambiance, well chosen plates and glassware. Food -- sangria was good (and hooray for happy hour), churros fabulous, the tuna ceviche great-- just the right heat, fresh, nice balance with lemon. Patatas bravas were so-so, crema was good the potatoes themselves needed more time on the stovetop and some garlic to be exciting. The only would-not-order-again was the "tortilla" with black beans and aguacate. A tortilla in Spain (home of tapas) is not the chapati-like flatbread it is in Mexico, but like a thick omelet or crustless quiche (made with eggs). This was a tortilla (the pasty kind from grocery store, albeit w grill marks) filled with mostly onion and bell pepper. If it's to be a wrap or taco just call it that, but make a good fresh tortilla (very do-able), but if a Spanish tortilla then have at it, also a great dish and a tapas staple. Aside from that misstep quite nice and we'll come back again for the ceviche and churros for sure.
