Unbeknownst to me, this is one of
my date's favorite restaurants. Needless to say, our first date was a success. Very friendly knowledgeable staff. Background music perfect for the setting, although the 5 minute flamenco dance performance twice during the evening seemed a little odd. All of the tapas we tried were excellent."

Food was great, service was
outstanding. A little loud by the bar but hardly a problem."

I have had tapas from all over and
these are some of the best I ever had. The restaurant was busy on a Friday night but they took care of us even though we were just a small table of two. The food comes out in holders that allow them to stack several plates so you can have quite a bit on one table. They also staggered our order a bit so we could get started eating pretty quick. We had several dishes with allioli which was just the right amount of spicy. The chicken filled empanadas were my favorite."

We enjoyed 5 tapas between the 2
of us, they were all great! Sadly, there were several other options we wanted to try but were too full. So "so many options, so little room in the tummy". We'll be back."

We went because we had a Living
Social voucher but will definitely be back. Food was excellent and the service (Anna) was as well. So nice to see this in this part of Omaha."

We always love going to Espana!
Every dish, from cheeses to meatballs to sizzling shrimp to desserts, is perfectly prepared. It is truly a wonderful tapas restaurant. Portions, as such, are small, so you can sample a variety of unique and delicious dishes. Espana is always crowded and lively. There are groups of 10-12 and parties of 2, and everyone has a wonderful time. It does not disappoint - ever!"

Espana allows you to have a dining
experience. Our tapas lasted almost 2 hours. No rush here! Wait staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. The tapas and homemade sangria are delicious!!! I thought I was in Spain. Enjoy the experience."

Great food, Tapas style allows you
to sample many different menu items even within a small group. The food was refreshingly unique, yet simple and prepared well with great flavors. The service was outstanding. We will definitely be back!"

Had a table booked for 6:30pm on a
Friday. It wasn't until I called to let them know we'd be about 5 minutes late that they told me we only had the table till 8pm. The reservation had been made 2 weeks in advance, so why was this the first time I was hearing about this? By then it was too late to make reservations anywhere else, so we were a little annoyed to say the least. When we did arrive, we were offered a table by the door, which we reluctantly accepted since we could stay there past 8pm. However, shortly after that, we were moved to a table in the back. After that, everything was great, but why the rush? Especially when a table for 6 sat empty the whole time we were there, even though people were turned away at the door."

Very nice and friendly staff. Very
attentive and informational about the menu items. We enjoyed the food items we chose but will try something else the next time."

Made a reservation on OpenTable
for New Years Eve, but didn't notice that the restaurant was only serving one meal. The meal was outstanding, but more of a selection would have been nice and the price was a little steep 75 bucks per person. (especially for those that don't drink) Again, the food was incredible!"

My boyfriend and I truly look
forward to dining at Espana. It's a little pricy so we save it for special date nights. We've learned to start with two tapas per person as we over-ordered at first. We haven't been disappointed yet!"
Dined on 12/27/2013
The food was as good and as
expected based on prior experiences. They were busy and short-staffed so service was slow but our server did her best to stay on top of things."

There is a good variety of tapas,
and the quality is consistently good. We were there for a Sunday night when they have classical guitar students play. These are advanced students, and you can tell they love the music."
Dined on 12/1/2013
The tapas are delicious...some do
require a better description, so ask. We were a group of four, and happy with the quantity and flavors of the 6 dishes we ordered. Best to order a few at a time."

Being on business in Omaha, NE,
this place was a great find! The food is amazing & beautifully prepared. The staff is very attentive, offered great suggestions & made sure we wanted for nothing! This place is a must for a fabulous dinner!"
Dined on 11/5/2013
Wonderful tapas, nice variety with
frequent new additions, but not so many as to bump off the favorites. Service is always good. The winelist isn't huge, but is well-selected to go with the food and features some types that you might not find elsewhere. Great place for a group and for out-of-town guests, but works fine for a couple, too. Try to catch a weekend when Hadley Heavin is playing. He is a master classical guitarist, and a gem for Omaha. If you can't see him, his students play every Sunday night. There are a lot of new restaurants in Benson, which is a great thing, but Espana has proven itself for 10 years."

I have been to Espana a few times
and every time I have been happy with the whole experience. Great local restaurant with a unique atmosphere."
Dined on 9/1/2013
we had a delicious meal of 5 tapas
for 2 adults. the presentation and taste were great."

We went in a group of 6 to Espana
to celebrate a birthday. The tapas were great and very filling (12 tapas + dessert left everyone stuffed) with a huge variety of choices. Each dish was delicious. The atmosphere is lively. The night we were there there was a band and flamenco dancer. The only negatives were that the tables are a little cramped and during the performance it was too noisy to talk comfortably. However, the quality of the food more than made up for those minor drawbacks!"

My father lived in Spain during
college and has always talked about his experience with tapas. I thought Espana would be the perfect place to celebrate. My father enjoy the tapas, in fact, the food was amazing! But even though the food was great the service was poor. When we arrived the candles were not yet lit on the tables, the restaurant was empty yet we had to wait to be seated, and although I had called ahead to make sure the knew it was his birthday (and noted in the online reservation) there was no mention of it what so ever. Total bill for 3 was $104. Including 8 tapas and a small bottle of sangria. I used $60 in open table gift cards so the disappointment was a little easier to take."

This was our second trip to
Espana. We ordered a drink and then Tapas. Everything came at once, so it seemed like it was pretty rushed. We would prefer to have the Tapas come one or two at a time and take our time over drinks, especially when ordering hot items. The food is good, but not great. The Tapas are pretty "authentic" - similar to what we enjoyed in Spain. We would probably try it one more time, but I do have to say I think it was better the first time."

My girlfriends and I had a
terrific evening out at Espana. The food and drink was excellent and our server was very knowledgeable. I can't wait to go back for an evening with my husband."

Very good food and great
atmosphere. One of Omaha's best."

We liked everthing except the
food. The dishes were medicare and bland but very affordable. Maybe it was what we ordered. Service and ambiance were fine."
Dined on 5/4/2013
Service was quick, attentive and
informative. Waitress explained the Tapas concept to the table and recommended that if we were doing tapas as our meal to get 2-3 per person and share. If you are getting the paella - it will take 40-45 minutes to prepare and just get a couple of tapas to tide you over. Drinks were a large pitcher of sangria - taste was decent, but very little fruit and a lot of ice to the point it almost seemed watered down just a bit - HINT - add more fruit, use less ice. Table of four (4) shared 12 tapas. Each tapas was priced between 7.50 and 11.00 so it will add up. Overall, pretty good visit, but expect to drop a Benjamin to include drinks and dessert. Worth a trip to experience a taste of Spain."

We hit a very busy night, yet the
staff handled it well and the tapas arrived in the correct order and were delicious as ever."
Dined on 4/19/2013
One added note: The guitar trio on
March 24th was good and added greatly to an already enjoyable experience."
Dined on 3/24/2013
Enjoyed it very much. Nice
explanation of dishes. No rush. Just down the street from the Waiting Room. Great place to have dinner before a concert."
