    Fun atmosphere and tapas are great! Lobster mac n cheese is loaded with lobster. Drink service was a bit slow but the bar is very crowded.

    Food and service were awesome. Lobster mac n cheese, white mussels, and oreo beignets. If you're having trouble locating it, ask for The Big Gay Tapas Place ;-)

    Paella for two is totally worth it and appropriately huge. Yelp check in for free sangria.

    Great for brunch! Order the brunch-rita (a margarita with a touch of OJ) or the Brazilian Pop, which has pomegranate liquor, mango puree and champagne. Read more

    Overall this was a below average experience. For one we felt a bit rushed. The waiter dropped the check off before we asked for it & said "no rush." The paella was off. Best part was the mac & cheese

    Incredible mezze board. Service was 2/10, though. They brought our dinners at different times so we had to wait to eat. It also took more than an hour to get our check.

    Good place for a drink on the side walk on a summer night without having to put up with the rowdy teenagers that hang out a few blocks down.
