Very nice place to go for a relaxing evening with friends or a date. The live jazz makes for a perfect evening. The tapas (and entire menu) choices are amazing, no shortage of selection no matter what you are in the mood for. Recommend the hummus!

Nice place with half price Tapas on most items on Tuesday. A great selection of Martinis. Service can be a little slow though. Will be back but only on Tuesday as prices are a little high.

5 family members gathered at a booth for a night repast and had a jolly good time of it. Food came out in small plates or tapas style along with our drinks of choice. We shared the food and even with all the food we ate, we decided on a dessert to share. I have pictures to add if I... More

The whole structure of the half price tapas has changed. I can understand needing to make a little bit more money on the food which is good. But the attitude of the workers and bartenders are unacceptable. Maybe it's just me. But why does every high-end eclectic artsy type place have people with attitudes? Is that a pre-requisite to work... More

My Fiancee and I stopped in here twice, the first time, Our stomachs were bigger than the menu and we had to make a quick exit to find dinner. Later that evening we went back, and I am glad we did. At night the restaurant turns into a club, they move out some tables to reveal a nice size dance... More

Happy hour includes 1/2 price tapas that were out of this world! Everything we tried was delicious. We sat on the deck to people watch while we enjoyed our dinner. The service was friendly, efficient, and the prices were great!

Loved the tapas style menu. The food was great. The interior was stylish. The jazz band that was playing was very professional and fun to listen to and watch.
