The tapa menu looks good so I would come back to explore other dishes. I did try the tuna and it was well cooked with solid flavor (a lot of salt which was overwhelming). The paella (black rice with seafood) was OK. It was a...More

Met up with here friends we traveled through Spain with. Perfect paella that was more than enough to feed all four of us. Sangria Rioja brought back those wonderful days strolling through beautiful cities.

Really enjoyed the food here and service was impeccable. My 18 and 9 year old daughters enjoyed everything. 4 tapas croquette, suckling pig, plancha squid and beef skewers were terrific and delicate. Then a seafood paella that was cooked to perfection. Thank you

The chorizo was OK. The vegetables and chicken paella was bland. We had to ask for hot oil. The churros were small and over done. The sangria was cheaper and made me feel weird. Not worth the price.

The paella was excellent. 2 large pans was more than enough for 4 women. The sangria (white) was delicious. The only downside is how small, and how cramped together the tables are. Great waitstaff.

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York

The paella is delicious and the service was warm. It is a very casual atmosphere. I think seating might be an issue, since they are high top tables within very close quarters. They also have a Soccarat in Soho. They have a... More
