Not a fan, the paella was totally undercooked!! Service was spotty, we waited practically an hour for appetizers. It's weirdly very large for west village with a whole basement and second bar down there but honestly not worth going back. 


 I went to this restaurant last year with my boyfriend during restaurant week. As they are known for their sangria, I opted to try one of their many flavors available. While the sangria was tasty, it was a bit sweet (especially for dinner), so I had one and opted for wine after that. For my appetizer I chose the dates wrapped in bacon, stuffed with almonds and cheese. My taste buds were very pleased with this sweat and savory combination. For my main portion I tried the fish paella. This I could have done without. Both my boyfriend and I thought that our paella was too dry. This was definitely disappointing coming from a restaurant that boasts their paella on the sign. Dessert time came, and my choice was the "Pan, Chocolate, Aceite, & Sal." Again, this was a little peace of sweet & savory heaven. If I was to go back, I would definitely opt for just tapas and dessert - and that's what I would recommend to someone wanting to give it a try!


I love this restaurant for brunch! The tapas are all so delicious and you can even add $20 to your order for AYCD sangria, and they do not lack in that department! There are about 10 different types of sangria, and you can mix it up as you go through the brunch. Definitely recommend it if you're looking for a boozy brunch that's not as wild as some other places. Looking forward to going back for dinner soon!

An hour after ordering, no food. Not even an appetizer. When we asked the waiter, he said food was coming out right away. When that didn't happen, we complained to manager, who kicked us out of the restaurant. 2 couples, including 2 visibly pregnant women. Shameful and disgusting.
