    The tapas and appetizers were better than the entrees. The tables are too small and the waitress did not remove the used dishes at anytime during the meal which can build up with tapas orders and appetizers. We would return, but stick with the tapas menu.

    Creative menu and very tasty selections. We ordered the chips/salsa/guac as an appetizer. For entrees, we had a Harissa Chicken Rice bowl, a Korean Bulgogi Burrito and steak fajitas. Everything was tasty, and our server was superb. The place is small and the tables are bit awkward, but other than that, it's a great place to go for a casual yet gourmet meal.

    Food is good with outstanding flavors but overpriced. Servings are small as expected of tapas, will be good to have free bread or chips to go with tapas food.

    Had to remind waiter multiple times about things we ordered. My daughters side dishes never arrived and when we pointed it out at the end of the meal, there was no offer to compensate us for it. :(
