We chose this restaurant for an informal college reunion for 4 couples. The best part of the evening was the conversation. Everything else was just average except the service - which was poor. The drinks took a long time to come from the bar as...More

Tapas - an interesting assortment of "sampler" dishes, all nicely prepared and very tasty. And, they make a very good martini!

Don't let the strip mall center fool you. Jalapeños for dinner is the best in Annapolis. It's kind of like Mexican/Latin American tapas, and you can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

Hands down, the best salmon I've ever had! Cooked with beer, garlic and sesame oil, then blackened … incredibly moist.

Wouldn't let us in. Didn't know it was reservations only. The host was very rude! Told us you don't have reservations, if you stay, it would be at least an hour wait, you have to leave. Should have on their web page reservations only!

You wouldn’t think this restaurant in a. strip center in parole could be at this culinary level, but it is. They do a great happy hour in the bar where most of the appetizers are half price. It is Spanish, not Mexican food that is...More
