Came here at the tail end of Sunday brunch and had to make a reservation a month in advance. The place was a mob scene and the service was terrible. Our waiter ended his shift in the middle of serving us and didn't tell us... Then nobody took over for him. The food and sangrias were good, but the subsequent food poisoning certainly left a lasting impression. That being said, we will not be returning.
