Went here on a Saturday night to try something different.
We'd made a reservation and were seated straight away. There were a few empty tables but the ambience was good. Dimly lit and that perfect combination of music and diner's conversation so that you can hear your partner without hearing anyone else's conversation.
We split the scallop and corn arepa starter and it was very good. I had the paella for a main and it also was good and a decent portion. My wife had the beef short rib which was tasty but on the small side.
Including a few drinks and tip, we walked out having spent less than $100 which in my opinion was a good deal.
I think the main test of a restaurant experience is whether you'd pay for it again and in this case the answer is yes, we'd go again.

Normally, I would think "decent food, bad service" was worth a try but not in this case.
We had an 8pm reservation and were seated promptly as the restaurant was less than half full. We ordered a pre-dinner drink and an appetizer to share which were both rushed to our table. We said we needed more time to choose mains and the server kept coming back to see if we were ready. We finally gave in and ordered our mains which were at our table within 10 minutes. We hadn't even finished our pre dinner apertif! We doubt they could have even cooked these for us but as there's not a lot on the menu, they must keep prepping the same meals.
Once we had finished, they promptly took our plates and asked if we wanted desert. We didn't so our server returned with the bill.
Once said and done - $100 and less than an hour. Chow doesn't seem to get that people are out for a night out, not fast food.
Overrated and not recommended!!!
