    I love paella and this place did a good job of it. They got that crunchy rice on the bottom and when combined with the chorizo it's amazing. Sprinkle some lime over everything and it's heaven. Great mix of seafood, great dish.

    An overall decent experience, but not nearly worth the price. We went here for Mother's Day, and considering how busy it was I can at least say that service was pretty quick. However, our server was fairly deadpan and didn't give us a chance to specify much about our orders. I got a steak and apparently he just decided for me that it would be cooked Medium. It was alright when it came out, though it tasted burnt around some parts... came with some pretty mediocre fries. We also got the "special" cheesecake, which was the one thing he hyped up a lot. I'm honesty not convinced there was any real cheese in it... very bland, somewhat rubbery, and room temperature like it had come out of a package. It was also a very small slice for $12... At least the chocolate churros were good. After taxes and a middle of the road tip, the bill came out to almost $200 for 3 people. We all agreed it was decent, but barely worth even half that price.

    Really good. Some of the best tapas I've had in the US. We had fried manchego, asparagus fries, patatas bravas, calamares a la romana, gambas pili pili and artichoke with crab. Splendid!

    Stopped in for lunch. Will not be back. Overpriced mediocre tasting food with rude service sums up our experience. Service: the waiter asked us if we were ready, we replied “Yes”. And as soon as I started to ask a question about one item on the menu, the waiter interrupted me and said “It looks you guys aren’t ready, I’ll give you few more minutes.” Then he put away his pad and just walked off. We were left there looking at each other and wondering if that really just happened. It was absolutely ridiculous. We were going to leave, but decided to stay because we were already in the mood for tapas. What a big mistake that was. Food: once our food started coming out, they were all mediocre at best, definitely overpriced for what they are. I’ve had good tapas before and this isn’t it. The meatballs: tasted just ok, the sauce was good, lukewarm in the middle but the sauce and the plate was hot, definitely microwaved before coming out. Overpriced for the portion and the quality; The homemade sausage: at first glance, I thought it was something gross, did not look appetizing, and the mash potatoes were definitely from a box mix. It has the consistency of high school lunch cafeteria mash potatoes, definitely overpriced base on the quantity(1 small sausage) and quality; The baked Brie: tasted ok, nothing special, overpriced; And finally, their specialty, the Paella: the flavors were ok, overcooked, overpriced for the portion. The waiter made it sound like it’s a big plate of food, it’s really not, certainly not $30 worth. To sum it, if you’re looking to pay extra for mediocre food, this is the place for you. I will not recommend it to anyone.

    Thoroughly enjoyed my birthday celebration with my girlfriends. They raved about my restaurant selection as the food was outstanding and service top notch, as always. Creative dishes will tantalize your taste buds. This is my go-to place whenever I'm in Frederick. If I lived closer, I'd be a regular!
