All our dishes were very good. However, with tapas the bill can grow quickly and nothing is cheap. Sangria was a bit watery. Hard to have a conversation with all the noise.

Our party of four ordered a Paella and six small plates. The Paella was great and recommend the following small plates -- sausages, shrimp in oil/garlic, patatas bravas, ham/chicken croquettes, and calamari.

In our opinion, the food was good, some items better than others. Two of us dined, yet some dishes had odd numbered portions; the probe were very small. Our order was messed up and we got the same dishes twice, but fortunately we liked them. The all-you-can-eat option proved too be worth it, especially with the odd numbered, small plates. The drink prices are very high comparatively. The service was sporadic; we had to flag down refills.
One gentleman left because no one addressed him and he read an entire newspaper! We will likely be back, now armed with knowledge about the ordering process.

The server was helpful at suggesting items that my party might like. The lamb skewers were our favorite. I went on a Friday evening and the environment was fairly calm around 8:15. I’d come again to check the salsa dancing or the unlimited Tapas.

Great place to hang out and enjoy some good spanish tapas. The service was excellent and the atmosphere had the right tone. I wish they still have the beer I loved (Alhambra Negra).

Have dined here before and really liked it, but the food wasn’t as good this time. Fried eggplant was soggy, not crispy like usual and the lamb meatballs were very bland. Service was ok, not as good as the last time.

Good sangria, had a children's menu that offered tasty options for kids while adults could sample tapas. Expensive for portions, considering many of the dishes had the same taste/sauce.

We can here for our anniversary. It was busy. We were seated for about 10 minutes before we were greeted by our server. Aside from that, the food was amazing and the service thereafter was on par. We’re definitely going to come back and try more things from the menu! We enjoyed the sherry mushrooms, the croquetas, and the chicken empanadas.

Pros:
- The ambiance is much brighter and cleaner looking since the restaurant's re-design.
- It was easy getting a table during brunch on Sunday.
- Service was attentive
- Food was tasty but steak was a bit tough to chew.

Cons:
- My fork still had paella on it from the last diner.
- Why do we ALWAYS have to ask for bread for the gambas - it should always come with the order.
- The tomato bread portion was a lot smaller than I remember and I think they are using a different
bread.

The food was wonderful, it was loud but not terrible, lots of happy people! Our server was wonderful. I'm short and not a fan of high tables but once I found where to put my feet life was better! Just have to move my feet a little underneath me more next time!

With a great menu like this, of course you’d want to try a little bit of everything. The tapa portion is an excellent way to taste what this restaurant has to offer. I love the brunch menu specifically.

Good spot. Nice options - varied ranges of wines and a broad selection of tapas. A friend brought a nice bottle of wine and we were prepared to pay a corkage fee but $25? Maybe that’s the going rate in DC area but seems steep to me. The tapas were all good but uninspiring - we had the eggplant, pichilllo peppers plus some Jamon as well as the Bistec which was nicely marinated but overly charred which overwhelmed the tastes. Our server was pleasant and attentive.

The selection as well as the quality of the food was very good. The service was good until it started to get busy, then one of our tapas was forgotten and it took quite a while to settle the bill. The manager/owner was very kind - he tracked down the missing chicken and it was packaged to go (at no cost). Overall very good, but get there a bit earlier in the evening.

The auctioning off of plates and gaps in delivery left a lot to be desired. The server didn’t seem to have control of the table and was less than attentive.
