Food was excellent. It was hot and very flavorful. Service was on top of things. The cost was a good value for the location. Malbec blend and Pinot Noir were very good and paired well with food.

Very nice food, had the tuna poke, salmon, and seafood paella. Attentive service. Nice dessert, berry crisp but not that crispy. Great selection of music playing in the background, gotta love a place that plays Grateful Dead!
