Truly a delight, with flavors you'll remember. Tasteful and transporting decor. Must book in advance as it's small and popular. Especially memorable was the sauteed calamari with garlic and cilantro. Portions were too large- would rather pay less and get less but another option would...More

The paella was very good and is large enough to share. It was flavorful with scallops, salmon, rockfish, chicken, calamari, chorizo. The service as excellent. It was attentive but not hovering.

The staff at this restaurant is hapless, and could care less about getting your business. One nasty staff person after another. So curt and nasty I left without eating or drinking. We watched them slam the door in a customers face. Very disappointing, as I...More

Had the best steak that I've had in a long time and the service was great also. The rest of the family thoroughly enjoyed their paella.

We were lucky to get a reservation on a Thursday night, 2 bar seats with a direct view into the organized & calm kitchen. Chef Colette Nelson & her capable partner chef worked in perfect harmony - their ease radiating into the cozy space. The...More
