We love tapas, so we can have a little of several items. The waitress was helpful in advising what dishes to choose. There was live music. It was a very nice place. A little upscale compared to other restaurant nearby.

The food here was quite good for the price point, but the service was very slow and the restaurant wasn’t particularly busy so there was no obvious reason. There were tons of vegetarian options but very limited vegan options. My older son was not impressed...More

I don't know if they're open that early but it doesn't seem like it would be a problem although the atmosphere is pretty "clubby".
