Took about 30 minutes for a server to even acknowledge that we were sitting down. During that time we did not have proper silverware or plates. After we finally submitted our orders (rushed at that point because we were hungry), we received the food in piecemeal. We finished the tapas and sat waiting for paella to be served -- that took another 25 - 30 minutes with no acknowledgment or status from the server. When we got the bill - the server placed the wrong size order of the paella. Instead of simply correcting her mistake - she proceeded to argue with us. Having already drained about 2 hours at that point - I was taken back that the only "experience" the server was providing was a painful one. I'm amazed a server like that is even hired. I was disappointed we didn't just make food at home as I live in DC.

We loved all of the food we ordered, especially the toasted bread with honey and goat cheese, the chicken skewers, the basque chorizo, and the bacon wrapped dates. Our server was very attentive and the food came out quickly. I would definitely book this restaurant again.

We ordered 5 tapas, a soup, and an individual paella to feed 3 and it’s was delicious and plentiful. Tapas- pulpo, anchovies, lamb, patatos bravas , tortilla, which was the surprise best of the bunch.

Was excited to go based on reviews and I’m not a super hard to please diner. It was expensive. The bread was late and cold. The paiella was dry and looked like something else I can’t mention. Really disappointing. Step it up guys ! .

Food quality was okay for such a busy restaurant. After our initial order was received, we didn't see our waiter until the end of our meal. We wanted to order more drinks. Very good desserts. Disappointing wine list.

We had booked for outdoors and received a terrific table under the patio tarp. The service was attentive without being intrusive and the ambiance was great. The food was mediocre. Not bad but not amazing. And tapas restaurants should really consider how many plates come out at one time and the table size. We were constantly trying to keep a plate from falling off. Otherwise a great evening.

Not one tapa came even close to authentic taste. They even managed to create gambas al ajillo with no flavor, I don't how that's even possible. Terrible food.

Service was exceptionally good. Food was wonderful. The main thing preventing me from giving it top billing was the noise level. The music was too loud, forcing patrons to raise their voices even higher.

The table beside us was a large part of 13 and they were literally screaming back and forth which made it nearly impossible to have a conversation with my date. All do the other tables had to resort to talking very loudly or screaming also which again, made conversation very difficult. Luckily the food was on point. I’d been here several years ago and this was not the case. If you’re looking for good food with someone you don’t mind not being able to have a private conversation with then great! If you’re trying to get to know someone or need to be able to talk business etc, then you’re better off going somewhere else. If it weren’t for the noise I’d give it 5 stars.
