    Good for banquet, not good for dining

    Food is always exceptionally good and 100% on target... I've gone on holidays, special occasions, the food is always consistent. However, the place can be very loud and the service can fluctuate. It's been better lately, but there were a few occasions where staff was downright surly and generally are rushed. Getting attention can be a little tough. But, if you're going to party and are in a jovial mood, the atmosphere can fade away. Place is a lot more fun with a 4+ person group.

    Why have I not been before?

    I did not know what to expect when I was invited for a bday dinner of a friend. We had great service and wonderful pitchers of sangria. Appetizers were the filet tips, fried calamari, shrimp sauteed in olive oil and garlic and the huge crabmeat cocktail. Then, we all had the lobster which were 3 to 3.5lbs. These came with the choice of soup or salad. For dessert instead of a whole cake, we got a slice of every kind of cake there.. a GREAT meal. All that food and the bill for 9 people came to just over $700 which was great. Can't wait to go back!!

    Delicious Shrimp stuffed with Crab Meat

    My first time and it was with a group of 8, which can be a problem. I was impressed that they allowed us to sit at the table although the party was not complete. We had wine and waited for the remaining ladies. We shared appetizers and the portions were large. The baked clams were perfect, the filet mignon was tender and juicy, and the garlic shrimp was enough to go around for all to share, all dishers were very hot. I ordered the shrimp stuffed with crab meat and it was memorable. The portion was large and dinner consisted of 10 large shrimps butterflied and overflowing with crab and breading . I had to take 6 shrimps home for the next day. My friend ordered the churasco and it was enormous, I would say about 16 inches long and it came with potatoes, onions and peppers in the same dish plus a side dish of either rice, vegetable or potato. Everyone enjoyed their food and many took food home. I would definitely consider this restaurant for dinner again.

    Never disappointed

    Never disappointed dining here. The service is attentive, the food is delicious, & the portions are extremely large. Paella is enough for 2. I had a double cut Veal chop. Wonderful. It is also very affordable for what you get.

    Love this Place!

    This is old school NY at its best. Great food, slightly tacky and faded ambience with great lighting. Seasoned waiters that glow and food that was really delicious. I don't know what that other writer was talking about. I had the paella (I'm in Spain annually) and it was as good, if not better, then many a paella I've had at fine restaurants in Spain. I Love this Place!

    one of the best resturants in NY

    Ive been to Spain several times and love eating good honest food - and lots of it. If this sounds like something you would like i can heartily recommend this restaurant. Genuine old school with genuinely good food and a reasonable price.
