Have been coming here for over 10 years now & there's a reason! Even when busy they make an effort to seat us quickly. The ambience inside makes you feel like you're taking a little trip to Spain, & the outdoor seating area is lovely...More

Our group of 8 made reservations at 6 pm. Five were vegetarian, one with dietary restrictions, one pescatarian, & 2 omnivores. We were all happy sharing dishes. And the desserts were incredible! Servers were helpful & diligent.

A pleasant place to nibble and nosh - pleasant staff, decent wines by the bottle and glass, when busy service slows, but so much as to be annoying...

Great tapas and very friendly wait staff. Sauses used on many plates are special. Can be pretty busy at prime time so be prepared to be patient.

Had a wonderful time before going to play at Northwestern. Loved the small plates and we ordered 6 different dishes. Good service even though restaurant very busy.

I was not impressed by the food. Based on the reviews, I expected a much higher quality. It's just ok...and definitely not authentic "Spanish tapas".

No. But what age child? Have you gone to their website? They have a full menu on it. Except when our children were infants, we never had a problem finding something on an 'adult' menu that they could eat. So I suggest you... More
