Haven!t been here in awhile and was happy to see that the service was still excellent and the food was great. Portions are very generous and the complimentary bread and salad are delicious.

Portions are enormous so I would suggest at least one less dish. Even the apps are big The paella is good but could be seasoned a little more. Very nice restaurant

You are not expected to spend any money. But if you go to dinner you should probably allow yourself $50 a person with a drink and entree.
