I have eaten at this restaurant several times, and the food has always been excellent. I had Gazpacho for an appetizer, and Pollo a la Riojana for the entree. In addition, I had the red sangria, which was delicious. Although I was too full for...More

Arrived for our 7:30pm reservation and found ourselves in a mob scene, tons of people waiting. While the host asked for our patience and said that we'd be seated in a few minutes, we waited 30. Why bother have a reservation? The food was ok......More
