Was really hungry after seeing a show at The Broadberry. This place was the first we walked by on the way home that was open. Decided to take a chance. We sat at the bar and were greeted by the bartender, Doug. He was really...More

Not quite sure how to rate. Had a great time eating small plates of funky food (grilled dates wrapped in spicy ham), nice reasonably price wine and great jazz music. Smallish dining area and only on-street parking and "loud" due to music. The loudness of...More

No parking, website menu not functioning, old grey duct tape & no handle on door, & 3 smokers in front of only entrance door, but we took a chance. Waitress was nice, but dirty plastic menus with nothing appealing. Unfortunately, inside & out needs repair...More

A very casual and fun spot for live music and good food. Great paella and nice house red. Excellent service.

We have have started going to Emilio's for live music on Saturday nights. The first time we dined there, we focused only on the tapas--calamari, shrimp, potatoes, cheese plate--all delicious. Last Saturday night, we went with a full dinner. My husband and I went with...More

I hosted a Meetup event here for trivia night and it was so much fun. They have a jeopardy like board they display on the TV screen which is nice so you don't have to solely rely on hearing (at a loud bar!). Tapas were...More

This place serves as a music venue by night, which is perhaps its best trait. On several occassions have sampled their tapas and been unimpressed. It's also lacking in ambiance. I'd really only recommend it if there is a band you want to see. There...More
