    Had the crispy calamari and it was okay. Not much flavor and very small amount. Also had the garlic shrimp and that was pretty good. The almond cake was great and the drinks were great.

    The service and ambience was outstanding. David provided awesome service. The disappointment came when we were told that they were out of seasonal items like fish. Salmon was on the menu, but another fish tapa would have been nice.

    Excellent food but service left some to be desired. Plates came out of order, had to request plates to be cleared off the table and drinks were not refilled unless asked by chasing down the server.

    The service and staff were excellent; unfortunately the food itself was just “okay.” The potato tortilla was especially bland; calamari was cooked well. The large plates seemed to have more flavor, but still not what I would expect at this price point. Ultimately not a bad evening but I don’t think I’d ever go again.

    I had made a reservation through open table for 6:30pm at a regular table (not a high table). When we arrived the restaurant was 40% full, if that. We were offered a table outside but because of the stifling heat we said we preferred inside. The hostess was visibly annoyed and then reluctantly offered us a table inside. As she walked us over, we realized it was a high table. The rest of the restaurant with regular tables was virtually empty. The service was slow but friendly and the food was good.

    I can't rate the food or the experience because I didn't have one. My wife and I were seated, given water and menus, and 30 minutes later were still sitting there with no service. I attempted to flag down multiple servers, but they were all too busy conversing with each other to notice. As I left I attempted to describe the issue to a hostess, but they ignored me too. Apparently it takes two to seat a party. So I left, and had a great meal across the street at Green Lemon. I was SO HUNGRY I likely ate like an animal. Two thumbs down.

    Tasty food for sure. One guest had well done steak that he had ordered medium rare. The same guest had his credit card literally lost behind the machine and he had to cancel his card. Another guest ordered a bottle of wine and it was slow to come to the table. No crust on the bottom of the paella. Not a $100 per plate experience really. Fantastic cocktails and bartenders. The one in Orlando is much more successful sorry to say. Staff friendly, overwhelmed. Weird that from the top bar there is only 1 slow elevator to get to any restrooms. Really bright lights kill the vibe and tiny furniture for our taller guests. But if my friends wanted to go back I’d have no problem going back.

    This was our first visit and we were delighted with the service and the tapas that we shared. We were not able to access the rooftop bar as the weather was not cooperating. The server Isaiah was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave great recommendations. This is a fun, casual place with a please atmosphere. I would not recommend if you are looking for a quiet date night or meeting as the noise level is a bit up.

    Our server explained any dishes we had questions on. She was very informative made recommendations and was very friendly. I think her name was Maya? The food was amazing each new small plate was better than the previous one. It was a little loud when we got there at 7 PM. it was a vibrant crowd! Also it was raining so everyone was indoors. And there was a private function in the lounge. Definitely will go back!
