I just ate there yesterday with a couple friends and the food was great. Over a third of the menu is Spanish. We had the Paella and Tapa de Granada and they were was excellent. We also had the Angus Steak(Del Fogon), Lobser Taco, Avocado Guacamole and Cactus Salad. All were very tasty. The Stake taco with the chorizo was ok and same with the dessert. They could be improved. But, they said they were coming out with new ones next week. So all good. The salsa and nachos were amazing also and they gave them free. Very nice venue and polite staff. Can’t wait to go back.
Delicious food and great customer service. My server was very friendly and accommodating throughout the entire meal, and the general vibe I got from the restaurant was a sophisticated one. I agree that some of the charges seem a bit extraneous, but I don’t mind paying a bit extra if it comes with this level of dining experience.
Was here on Saturday and the ambience and customer service was AMAZING! They accommodated my requests on the spot. The food is tasty and presentation was palatable. …(wish was 3 tacos instead of 2) BUT the treatment and staff made my birthday celebration amazing…..Now imagine 10 women ( house wives of Tdot) loud, cackling and talking over great music…and an engaged manager….Reid, Connor…amazing guys but SO was ALL the staff…5*****
