Our waiter danced and treated us like Queens as my colleagues and I indulged in the delicious Mediterranean fare. We shared a table full of tapas, all delicious. The service was delightful and the outdoor seating felt quaint and comfortable! A truly wonderful experience .

Best octopus outside of Italy. Amazing white sangria with apples that are literally dripping with red sangria. Fabulous service. Yum!!!

We came here on Valentine’s Day and it was packed. We had a reservation and were seated right away. Our waiter was attentive without being intrusive. The food and cocktails were out of this world. We had the vegetarian mezze tasting and it was huge!...More
