Had a wonderful evening here sitting outside in a beautiful environment. The drinks are very good with a nice selection. The tapas were new to us and we enjoyed ever bite. The four of use ordered and shared five different tapas plus a desert one. Service was excellent with a knowledgeable waitress. Look forward to going back next visit to... More

I wanted so badly to like Sanctuaria. They offer tapas (small plates) which range in price from around $8 - $12 each. A few dishes are a little higher. We tried the bacon wrapped dates(great), plantains w/cheese (ok), chicken sliders (needed seasoning), black bean stuffed peppers dish (just ok), and the wicked shrimp (great). They also offer a variety of... More

Four of us dined at Sancturia on a Friday afternoon. Drinks from the cocktail menu were inventive and very good. Tapas plates were great and enjoyed by us all. We ordered a second round of the stuffed peppers. Staff was friendly and attentive. Would return for sure!

It was really hot and we didn't want a dinner, so tapas and beverages were perfect! There is a really good selection of both. There a designer cocktails, but I opted for a mojito with lovely fresh lime and mint--perfect. We had a cheese "plate". It arrived on a slab of marble with a blue cheese and cubes of another,...

My mother and I were treated to mothers Day brunch may 8 by my son and daughter .Remember this is still a tapas restaurant. We liked their bloody Mary's, and grapefruit mimosas. The bourbon maple pancakes were enough for a large bite for all of us. The breakfast casserole was high priced for the amount and flavor. All in all... More

Sat outside in the beautiful courtyard. Service was excellent. Food was amazing even for the two men in our party who were skeptical they would have enough to eat with "small plates". Plates were well-paced, each beautifully presented and each one tasty in its own unique style. We were by far the oldest guests there, but loved the vitality and... More

The atmosphere of this place is amazing-inside and out. We showed up on a whim. They were very accommodating about seating us in the bar area because the dining room was booked solid for the entire evening. Our server was great but a little inattentive. She was very knowledgeable but clearly overworked. The drink choices are interesting and not your... More

I have dined at Sanctuaria approximately 5-6 times over the past 18 months. Each time our party consisted of at least three people. The variety of interesting alcoholic beverages and lovely tapas presentation has been consistently good. The tastiness of the dishes has varied from average, chicken and biscuit, to delicious, wicked shrimp. The bacon rolled dates and the flat... More

t's place good for drink, not for dinner. Food is good but absolutely over prize. All dishes are tapas portion (very small) but priced as a normal portions. Very disappointed. We spent 400$ in 5 and we tried few plates, at the end we couldn't share because portion were really ridicules. I would recommend only for cocktail. No even sangria... More
