On our most recent visit, we arrived on a Saturday evening at around 5:30PM and found the parking lot nearing capacity.  We did not have a reservation, but were seated at a table for 2 in the main dining room.  Once again, neither of us was overly hungry so we decided to share a salad, entree and dessert.  We received complimentary olives and warm bread while we reviewed the menu.  

We chose the ensalada Mediterranea - Belgian endive, small squares of house made mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, olives, white beans, artichoke hearts and red balsamic vinaigrette.  For an entree we chose paella Mediterranea that contained a Maine lobster that had segmented into two legs with claws plus a tail split into two.  In addition, there were 4 mussels, 2 shrimp, farm raised scallops, squid and a copious amount of white fish.  The broth used was not saffron based, but lobster that added little to the dish.  We could have/should have stopped there but we were a little short of the value of my LivingSocial certificate so we ordered a slice of tres leches cake and coffee.  The tres leches was okay, but it was a bit dry indicating it could have soaked for longer in milk. There was a long time delay between ordering and receiving our entree that I attribute to the kitchen.

Service was good though there was a glitch when we received our bill.  Earlier in the evening a table for four adjoining us was switched out for 2 tables for 2.  Thus we received the bill for table #3 when we started off as table #2.  Our waitress made the proper adjustments and apologized for this understandable error.  Overall, this was a good dining experience.
