    La realidad que la comida no era la gran cosa. Pedí un rodaballo con la salsa al lado y majado que nunca vi, ya que mezclaron todo. Y la comida casi fría. La persona que nos atendió super atenta ofreció cambiarme el plato pero le dije que no.

    This is my favorite restaurant sort of like the place where everyone knows my name love the healthy choices and the high quality of the menu. I can eat anything from a salmon tartare with truffle oil to high quality meat cheeseburger, great pastas with fresh seafood, and wonderful sauces, all sorts of high-end meat and wonderful man chego cheese croquet. The service is wonderful and everybody is awfully friendly. One of the owners is a high-end interior designer, and the place has a personality that conjugates, elegance and relaxation. I highly recommend this place.

    The food was mid (e.g., lacked flavor and creativity) for what you're paying. Most dishes do not taste like they used to (been going here for years), like maybe they're not getting the same supply of ingredients or something. For instance, we (a table of 4) ordered the truffle fries as a last resort side dish because we'd already tried a few lackluster dishes and where still hungry. The "fries" were just chips (like Lays) with some parmesan on top, no truffle flavor. The waitress did mention they had not used the truffle oil they normally do and that she could place a replacement order but we didn't want another order of chips... We moved on and ordered two desserts, the pecan pie and bread pudding. The bread pudding was basically a muffin (same cake texture and look) so calling it bread pudding seemed like a stretch. The pecan pie was okay. The wine recommendation was excellent though, and the charcuterie boards were great as well. The table we were seated at was very nice and we appreciated the service. I'd still recommend it, just wish the food was better and more consistent sinxe it's not exactly a cheap restaurant.

    We absolutely loved everything about this restaurant. The staff were energetic and kind, the atmosphere was perfect, and the food was AMAZING! We were a little nervous walking in because our Spanish is not that great, but we were definitely going to try. To our surprise, everyone who assisted us also spoke English, and gave us a menu in English. I had the Catalan stew and it was delicious. My hubby had the cod which was also amazing. We also had the manchego (a type of cheese) croquettes, and for desserts chocolates cake with manchego cheese ice cream. The drinks were also amazing. Infused with a hint of basil or other herbs. Can’t wait to come back!
