Quaint corner restaurant in midtown. Extensive menu-food, cocktails, wine. Staff very accommodating though in leaning mode. The food is flavorful-needs a little more spice to it to bring out the different meat and fish flavors! Paella takes a while to cook-perfect for two. Again, could...More

We had very tasty tapas in the pleasant courtyard. The service was good, if a little slow. The neighbours were a litlle too noisy, though.

Had a group of 7 friends from around US meet here during a conference. Were seated promptly at 7:45. Placed a couple of paella and wine orders soon after seating. Paella takes 40 min to prepare, which is a good sign and wines were excellent....More

We have come here every 1-2 years for the past 10 years, and recently every 3 months. The food has been consistently good, from their Albondigas to Zarzuelas. Service is not superlative but never inadequate. Overall a solid 4-star choice, and we like that they’re...More

It's a good idea to make reservations here - it gets easily filled up. We managed to garner a window table and had a lovely meal. Our favorite wine was sold out, but the amiable waiter suggested a good replacement.

This is one of my absolute favorite places to eat. Not only is the food amazing, the people who work there are as well and it's just a relaxing place to go. We've sat outside on their patio and it's a little slice of heaven...More
