This restaurant came recommended. We were a oarty of four. Tables are so close we could hardly hear ourselves speak. We ordered a four course dinner. Our order was rushed as we were not given adequate tme to complete a course before the next one arrived. The food was a huge disappointment... I could have made better a home. Will... More

A delicious spot for amazing tapas. Huge selection; friendly staff. We didn't try any of the entrees, but I'm sure those were delicious too.

Not being very familiar with Spanish food, everything we tried was out of this world and so unique that we have returned several times. If you do not wish a full meal, feel certain that the tapas are quite sufficient to experience the delights of this type of food and wonderful ambience Aioli offers. In the past, I have tasted...

We also had calamari. All was fresh and tasty. By 6 the place was packed. The guitarist was playing. The service was prompt and courteous. The ambiance... More

We visited this restaurant on recommendation of a family member and it was wonderful. This is a Spanish restaurant specializing in tapas and paela. The paela was recommended so we ordered the Valencia version which serves two. The dish was wonderful well prepared full of flavor. We also ordered a salad which included arugula and persimmon and was delicious. Service... More

we had rabbit & lamb & white beans with chorizo (DELICIOUS, authentic Spanish!). The wines are Excellent! The outside area is very nice, pretty, shady, lots of nice shrubbery, quieter than inside (but there is always a wait so call 1st). Remember, these are Tapas, so the plates are SMALL, which can be surprising (unless you know & are looking... More
