Diner Reviews
  • "Been here several times and always enjoy the food and atmosphere. Two minor complaints on our recent visit. We were seated in the room adjacent to the bar. My husband wanted to try it. Too noisy and just didn't care for the windowless atmosphere or table arrangement. We tried four different tapas. Three, the octopus, potato omelet and meat skewer were delicious. The fourth a shrimp dish that was described as made with garlic, parsley and white wine, was absolutely tasteless. The shrimp were colorless and mushy and had not a trace of garlic or white wine that we could discern. I did taste the parsley! Service was good."

  • "We've been looking for a true Tapas bar and we found it. The food was delicious and the service was great. The wait staff and the maître d was so attentive...even on a Friday evening."

  • "From the outside it is an unprepossessing little hole- in- the- wall which we had driven past on dozens of occasions. Some Argentinian friends, who have eaten there several times, suggested we meet for dinner. We were immediately approached when we entered and were on our way to our table when the owner approached and welcomed us. The margeritas are outstanding-authentic, unlike most of the other Spanish/Mexican restaurants we have tried.We shared several tapas plates, all of which were excellent: anchovies, octopus, chorizo, rellenos and croquetas both with ham and cod. Everything came quickly and the service was outstanding. On our way out there was a lively scene at the bar with a DJ and a couple dancing. A great place to eat."

  • "Excellent food. Try some items off their tapas menu; Their garlic chicken is fantastic, and the bean soup with chorizo really is delicious. The atmoshpere is very warm, service is friendly and the owner is very polite and is always around making sure you are taken care of. A great dining experience."

  • "Its a shame because I know the owner means well and he and his staff are hardworking for sure, but they can't always deliver on promises. The menu says "made to order paella", but its absolutely not... a buddy ordered his rice without peas, and they wouldn't do it. My paella would've been pretty good, but they WAY overcooked it. Their wines pairs well with the food... definitely a good thing and it has the owner's touch. Cheese platter is decent, but I don't think its Spanish (seems more Italian) and he should have more authenticity with it. Sea Bass was VERY good... sangria was good too (not easy to make). We've been there 4x and will try again, but if its still hit/miss, we're done... we want them to succeed but we won't go back."

  • "Returned to Espana for drinks, Tapas and a show. This time around i tried serveral Tapas rather than an entree and i was oh so happy with them all. Garlic shrimp, stuffed roasted peppers w/cod, croquets, empandas. Great night. Good Friends, Good eats and Wine...what else is needed on an evening night out. Espana doesn't disappoint. I will keep returning."

  • "This is not a super fancy place. The bar itself is really nice. They have a private room in addition to the main small seating area. We came late so it wasn't super crowded. The owner greeted is enthusiastically and was attentive to us all night. Our waiter was clearly ready to go home after the valentines day craziness so he gets a pass. We ordered 2 tapas. Potatoes in a spicy sauce which were good and chicken empandillas which were excellent. Also ordered paella and chicken and shrimp in a vodka sauce which was very tasty. I don't think it's fair to judge a restaurant on the busiest night of the year so we will be back. I have a feeling they will be even better on a regular night. Definitely try this place."

  • "It was a nice surprise! The tapas are delicious, bigger than usual, and the sangria was excellent. It is very affordable too. They were very busy, but tried to be as accommodating as possible. We were celebrating my birthday, and surprised me with a candle on my desert. We will be back!"

  • "We ventured from the east to go to tapas...as it is one of our favorite experiences but had never been to Espana before. We braved the downpours and were immediately welcomed by the owner and server. Our good friends showed up as we were trying the Sangria..great...we had the special tapas and several on the menu. All were outstanding. The restaurant quickly filled up with families and couples and could sense this is a place many people return to on a regular basis. We were even treated to entertainment..(how did he know Renee!) Good company, good food.....what else do you need!??? We will be back again soon!"

  • "Always excellent food and service. The owner comes around to make sure all is well We like to get tapas, many of them, to share. The cheese and meat platter is spectacular. Everyone loves the empanadas, meatballs and the chorizo. I always get their tortilla espanola which tastes homemade"

  • "The food was incredible! The last time I had Tapas was in Spain several years ago and this place reminded me of how good it was. The food was excellent, the staff was very attentive and the price was not bad. I am 46 and just started dating again and this was a perfect place to do it. Quiet so that you could have a great conversation but they have enough room between tables that you were not cramped and you could not hear other people’s conversations. I will definitely go here again!"
