My wife and I visited here on a Thursday evening. The atmosphere and ambience were very welcoming, the wait staff was very attentive without being too attentive. But isn't the food what's most important? Our meals came with the Roca Salad sampler, a mix of Caesar and Salada de Casa. Both were dry, barely having any dressing on them. Both... More

At the end of lunch, he told me that it was his new favorite restaurant! The staff are great and the manager took the time to check on the... More
