I had been here before and had a very nice tapas dinner. However, it seems as though they've changed the menu quite a bit. Not exactly tapas anymore - so the menu is a little hard to figure out - from appetizers, to full entrees, to a couple of tapas items. Regardless, it was very good and I would definitely... More

Very good place that serves tapas style with creative twists. The bar has an extensive cocktail list as well as a decent beer and wine list

Great downtown location in a nice decor. The chef has changed a few times over the years and so has the tapas menu...however not for the best. Still a very decent food, however not on par with what it used to be...enjoy!

We had brunch on Saturday. It was very nice. A healthy mix of eggs, sausages, seafood and other carribean inspired dishes. Our server was friendly and helpful. We will come back.

I was there two weeks ago and Radio Maria has good food, wine, beer, and service. We sat outside with my boyfriend's dog and the staff was great - very accommodating with our four legged friend, even bringing her a water dish. We are going back this weekend and will most definitely return.

Seared scallops on sunchoke risotto cakes were amazing! Hubby enjoyed a yummy paella too! A charge for extra bread didn't seem needed, but overall, always excellent food!

My friend also ordered a dish that was so dry she had to order sour cream. They brought her a ramiken with literally a teaspoon of sour cream and then said they were going... More

The restaurant offers an interesting mix of Middle Eastern, Latin American and Asian dishes with a touch of fusion. There is also an extensive Tapas menu. The wine list is substantial and the wines are well priced. Service is very friendly but can sometimes be slow or even a bit unprofessional. For example we were served the wrong dish on... More
