Wonderful! We celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary and were impressed with the effort the restaurant made to help us to celebrate this special occasion! Thank you for a wonderful experience!

We had to call and change the reservation twice, as we were flying in from Charlotte, NC and our flight was delayed by an hour and 35 minutes! Each time we called, they were so understanding, and were extremely understanding when we got there! Our waiter, made it sooo special!

The staff were extremely patient and flexible, myself and others communicating with our waiter to get clarifications on what the voucher deal can include. We were a group of 6 diners. I purchased two deals - one for 2 ppl, one for 4 ppl. Truly appreciated the wait staff patience. One of our diners complained about the cool air coming in/out of the patio door, the staff made adjustments for her to be comfortable. They offered us a different table, we declined. She appreciated the efforts.

The meal items included in the voucher deal needs to be corrected. The deal included 2 paella dishes up to a specified total cost amount. Restaurant menu required a minimum of 2 people for any paella dish chosen. The deal was for 2 people, should read as ONE paella dish, not 2. Honestly, the deal didn't save us money, without the voucher, it breaks even.

Very nice. Sat outside, next to the flamenco performers. Was a bit concerned it was going to feel hokey, but it didn't. Food was very authentic and delicious. The travelzoo voucher was a bit confusing though. Says 3 tapas, 2 paellas and a shared desert. This is plenty of food for 2, but be clear that it is 1 paella dish shared by two people.

We were treated like Travelzoo customers. It didn’t feel special and we are repeat customers - as non-Travelzoo patrons. We were sat in a high traffic area as well. It will be a while before we return.

Old-world service in a formal atmosphere. The tapas were superb, the paella less so.

Everybody - everybody! - is in business wear at least. This is not a place to show up in your flip-flops and cutoffs.
