My wife and I stopped for dinner on a Tuesday night, which was a good choice because it was not crowded. The menu is mostly Spanish, and has a large variety of tapas to choose from. My wife chose mussels in broth with some twice fried fries, and i had a duck confit salad. Both were excellent. Dinner seemed to be taking a long time, but the waiter brought us out free complimentary lamb raviolis, which were stellar. Dinner for me was Paella Valenciana (pork, sausage, chicken, clams, mussels, shrimp). The paella had a lovely crusty finish on it, and was served with half a lemon to juice over the paella. Divine. My wife had scallops and risotto, which was also fabulous.

There was also a complimentary drink at the end of the meal. I wanted dessert, but my stomach wouldn't let me :) I actually took half the paella home. Service was great, but expect slower service than what is normally had here in America. It was nice not to be rushed. I think the Europeans have it right in that regard. Five Stars.

Might I add, the prices were very reasonable--55 bucks for two.
