I don't usually review places close to home but I want to make sure this place sticks around. It doesn't look like much from the outside and the inside looks like a small old school bar without a lot of seating. The menu wasn't that big either but they keep it fresh and offer new, seasonal dishes. We got a little of everything since it's a tapas restaurant and the plates we got were delicious! They reminded me of the higher end appetizers you would find downtown. A guy next to us got something different and it looked and smelled as good as what we got, he is a big fan of the place as well. There is also a street taco menu but we didn't get a chance to try them. We really look forward to coming back soon. Prices were very decent as well considering the level of food, I highly recommend it.

Went Friday night to try new small restaurant, opened in June, new for us. Mostly small plates and apps. Good variety of beer and a few wines. I ordered the Peach Caprese salad, sounded odd had to try. It was delicious. Wife had the Garlic Shrimp (5 or 6), she only let me have one piece. The best thing all night. Main course for me was the Ahi tuna tacos (2). The tuna was perfectly cooked as was the salsa and crema.You don't need the taco shell. Wife had the Big House Burger, she said the best burger she's had in a long time. Could not eat it all, so big. The food was great! The restaurant and patio could use some work though. Service was very good.

This a new tapas bar, nicely renovated. We tried the tomato salad, paella stuffed mushrooms and crab cakes. All fresh, unique and delicious.
