Diner Reviews
  • "Service was slow and unnatentive. Some food had to be sent back as it was undercooked and some served cold. Haven't written it off yet as the ambience was good - maybe just an off night. "

  • "Tapas were good. We had all seafood since it was the last day of lent garlic shrimp were definitely the best thing we ordered. Tres leches was a little disappointing, could of been sweeter. Entertainment was pretty blah. Both of the dancers looked like they were just there like they had been every night. There was no draw to the crowd and the first set did not make us want to stay for the second. We still enjoyed ourselves. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. Would we go back? Yes, but more likely to try a different tapas restaurant with a better vibe. "

  • "Andalucia Tapas restaurant & Bar in Houston, TX. was an AMAZING experience, the waitress Lia was great and the Flamenco performers were fantastic. It was our first time there so we had some questions that our waitress Lia took care of. I even had a special request for my entree and it was met without a flinch. When the tapas began to arrive the aroma was unbelievable but the not as unbelievable as the amazing flavor of these foods. The show was so engaging we forgot for a moment we were Not in Seville, Spain. We had an unforgettable evening! Will I do it again? In a heartbeat! Olé! "

  • "My wife and I ate there this last Friday night for Valentines day. This was our second time there and my wife really enjoys the music show and the food. I grew up in Spain and moved here in 1982, so I am well aware of what Spanish food should look like and taste like. My mother was also a flamenco instructor and I took lessons as a child so I know what a flamenco show should look like. So that being said, I would have to say that this place is as close to being in Spain as you can get! Good food and great atmosphere!"

  • "I lived in El Puerto De Santa Maria, Andalucia, for 3 years and loved every moment, so much that I still travel to Spain every summer. This restaurant was authentic in its spirit and food. It is a piece of Southern Spain in the heart of Houston, TX."

  • "We picked up out-of-town family late at the airport and needed to find something spunky for late-night eats. Andalucia Tapas Bar came up with good prior reviews on Open Table so we figured we 'd try it out. A large party was underway, but we were seated an appropriate distance away and still enjoyed the music and show. The guitarist and accompanying percussionist were out of control! So lively and good! It was a hit with our group...and then the food! A long list of small plates well prepared and swiftly served. Everything was delicious! The one compaint: lighting was too bright and cafeteria-like. With all the amenities in pace, the ambience was just a click away."

  • "If you like great food and entertainment... This place will meet that criteria. Had dinner with friends, food was great and the sangria was marvelous.. Best of all was the flamenco dancing, what a rich tradition. Will go back very soon ..."

  • "The food at Andalucía was actually pretty good, but I found the ambiance was overwhelming. The restaurant was featuring live performers on the night of our reservation, and the music level was so loud that it was difficult to hold a conversation with others at my table, or even to convey our order to the waitstaff. I think in a larger group setting, this might have been more fun, but for a small or intimate dinner, it was kind of terrible."

  • "Great Tapas, & Service! They have a Flamenco Group that performs twice a week. The Classical Guitarist is second to NONE. Brilliant performance."

  • "As a mostly vegetarian it was nice to have several options, when it got busy service was a little slow, but nothing to really complain about. I would go back for sure.I did think food was a overpriced, but quality was excellent."

  • "We really enjoyed the food. The tapas format allowed us to enjoy a wide variety of dishes, all of which were fantastic. We also shared some of the paella which was fantastic as well. My wife is a vegan and she was able to find a couple of dishes that she enjoyed very much as well. We went on a Thursday night and there were a couple of really good musicians playing Spanish music."

  • "This was such a wonderful event. I was introduced to Don Julio tequila a few years and love the smoothness of this drink. So I was over the moon with excitement about Andalucia hosting this event. The food was excellent and the drinks were paired perfectly with each course. The facilitator for the event was very knowledgable and engaging, making every feel comfortable with questions about Don Julio. The waitstaff was very attentive and efficient. I definitely plan to visit Andalucia's again."

  • "Don't get into downtown Houston often but will definitely be going back to Andalucia. The staff was friendly, helpful and charming. They gave us great recommendations for creating a Tapas platter. The food was delightful and the sangria: WOW! We got there early in order to get to the symphony on time so it had not filled up and we missed the flamenco entertainment. Look forward to seeing that on our next visit."

  • "My friend and I ordered 3 tapas dishes. Crabcakes were ok- kind of bland. The shrimp with garlic was basically garlic with a side of shrimp. The chicken wings were cooked well but had no seasoning whatsoever. The wings also came out 20 minutes after the other stuff despite the fact that we told the server we were in a slight rush to make a show. She then told us the wings took so long because we switched tables after we ordered and it confused the kitchen. The reality was that she was the confused one and not paying attention. It wasnt even busy. Furthermore, if switching tables really was the issue then why did we get our other items on time? This place was a major disappointment. Bad service, bland food."

  • "Used link on site to go to apple maps for directions. Took us to an industrial area under 59 instead of downtown. After a couple of turn arounds and using a different map app, we found it. I had been there before on a previous trip to Houston. This time I was taking colleagues and was disappointed that it took an extra 30 mins to find the place. But they quickly forgave me when we had our food. It was fun sharing all the wonderful hot tapas dishes and pizza."

  • "My wife and I were in Houston for a convention and did not want to wander too far from our downtown hotel ... and Andalusia popped right to the top of our list when we checked Open Table. It was crowded on a Friday evening and the entertainment started at 8p, giving us time to finish dinner and down a few glasses of wine. The food was very good, but the portions were actually too large for tapas ... way larger than anything we ever experienced in Spain where a few bites per plate was the norm. I only consider that a negative because we were not able to sample as many dishes. All in all, we enjoyed dinner and the entertainers and would visit again on another trip to Houston."

  • "We went to Andalucía for the first time on Friday night and it was excellent. The server was friendly and knowledgeable and all the tapas we tried were all very good. The menu is extensive with lots of things we'd like to try. The sangria was also good. The place has a fun vibe, but one can still carry on conversation. We were there before a show at one of the nearby theaters so we didn't get to stay for the 8:00 Flamenco performance. We're planning to go back and do that soon. Glad we found Andalucía and we appreciate OpenTable's easy to use and informative listings."

  • "Andalucia Tapas Restaurant is a wonderful atmosphere for a fun date night! My fiancé loved the hot traditional Spanish Tapas and most of all the live flamenco singer, dancers, and guitarist. If you are looking for both a romantic and fun night out, Andalucia is the place to be. We can't wait to go back for more music and more delicious tapas."
