Never finish my entrée since the appetizers fill me up. Delicious garlic shrimp and snails are a must. Dinner selections and specials are wonderful and "too much" to finish

....this is the place for you! Spinach soup so highly salted that I could not eat it. My husband ordered the shrimp in the cognac sauce. They were tasty but served with the entire shell on. Fair bit of tricky knife work to get into his mouth. My grilled swordfish was delicious - perfectly cooked, the rice light & fluffy,... More

Four of us went here on a Saturday night. The food was pretty good, but the 3 baked potatoes that were ordered were practically raw. They were sent back & 2 came out properly cooked, but one was still hard as a rock. Never went to a restaurant that didn't know how to bake a potato! No one checked to... More

Just spoke to my fiance as we passed this the other day. This is my fav restaurant in the area by far! Try the pork chop ... or a steak. You can't go wrong .. and the atmosphere is perfect for a small gathering.

We have been here 6 times . We are very impressed with the food and service.. The paella (seafood) was fabulous. We shared a couple of appetizers- clams in white wine and cod cake(a special) both were excellent. We also shared the paella. The main dish portions are generous. My husband had flan for desert- excellent. The service was great.

We went to A Taberna on a very cold and snowy evening and were the only people in the restaurant for a while. The service was terrific and we enjoyed a wonderful meal and Sangria. Since they weren't busy, my friend and I were able to talk for hours as we enjoyed our Cappuccino. We certainly will return!!
