    We always come to this place, I could say it was our favorite restaurant in the valley until today. they were slow, but they still manage to give us the worst service. We order some bread and when it came to the table it was cold, like it was literally just come out of the fridge.We ordered some soft drinks, but they never came, until we asked for them like 20 minutes since we sat. When are mains came, we didn’t have any silverware. and we have to wait like 10 minutes until someone notices us and gave us silverware. I’m so sad with our experience today. they should just hire people that really loves their job and know what they doing.

    This place was highly recommended by some local friends and we were disappointed. Food was just ok. A $30 pasta dish had shrimp that were bland and a poor dry texture. The calamari w chorizo was very vinegary - if it was chorizo then id be surprised and the calamari was a bit tough. Salad was ok. Check arrived with extra charges that were surprising. Avoid.

    We had a pleasant experience here during our vacation. We sat on the patio with our dogs, it’s very dog friendly which was great for us! They have a huge and magical patio space. I was so hungry, I forgot to take pictures of the food. We had the fried calamari to start, which was juicy and fresh tasting. I had the linguine and clams, which was delicious and exactly what I wanted! My only wish was that it was slightly bigger. My husband had the veal Marsala, which was a generous portion, but he found it to require vigorous cutting with a less than sharp knife. However, the flavor was good. We enjoyed our waitstaff, who were tolerant of our dogs and enjoyed their quirks! I would look forward to coming back the next time I am in town.

    This was a difficult dining experience. Our waiter was rather slow through the entire experience, and when he was presence he was pretty pushy about ordering appetisers and entrees and a third course ( I am not sure what was expected after the first 2). I was told that I need to order another entree after my girlfriend ordered an appetizer for an entree?! It took multiple times to tell him that was all we wanted to order for dinner. There may have been a communication breakdown our server was Russian and had a thick accent. While he was taking our orders he made a suggestion for a modification for my uncle, he took the suggestion, come to when the food was dropped my uncle's order was wrong. Fast forward 15 minutes, everyone is mostly done with their food and we are still waiting for the server for a check back to let him know that his suggestion came out wrong. I decided to go and find him to let him know of the issue. In the meantime the manager came to our table and asked how everything was. They told her what was going on before I could get back. When our server came back to the table with another tables drinks, he was upset that we "told" the manager of the issue, and was asking why we did that (she came to our table like stated before). At that point the server took the wrong order plate and disappeared with it only to wait another 15 minutes for the correct one to come to the table. The server was also taking our $16 cocktails off the table before we were even done with them. All in all the service did not match the price of the menu. And on that note it's a Spanish restaurant so naturally I wanted to get a paella. Unfortunately, the paella was extremely dry. Every single piece of seafood on the dish is shriveled except the shrimp, the rice had a crust over the top. I'm not sure what happened at the kitchen but it was something that probably should not have hit the table. When we were ready to get the check, we asked that the check be split up four ways for the four families that were dining. We were told that he could only divide it up 3 ways, annoying but we'll get through it. Once we asked for the check it somehow took 45 minutes to take payment and bring it back. This was a sad experience all around. There is definitely room for improvement.
