Loved the bartender and food is consistently good. The service was extremely poor. We had a great table in the corner, but felt completely invisible. Finally stooped to waiving my arms and still had trouble getting the waitress's attention.

Very busy night (Lisa Lampanelli in town). Forgot reservations but found us a table for 2 in 10 minutes. Service was EXCELLENT. Not cheap but worth every bite. Chilate De Pollo soup was to die for. The Gambas Al Ajllo was much larger than expected...More
