Diner Reviews
  • "They have added new menu items in the last month. Would love to see them continue to add items, even if seasonably. "

  • "I have been dining at Espana for several years and always enjoy the experience. There is no place in Nebraska like this restaurant. It's a wonderful place to have the opportunity to try different dishes, thanks to its very well planned tapas (small plates) menu. I have never had one I didn't like."

  • "Wait staff was very helpful and attentive, sangria was the best in Omaha. Food was good lots to choose from, can be a little pricy but a fun chance from the regular places."

  • "We have dined at Espana several times and once again it was was wonderful. Each time we come we choose a new dish this time could not pick a favorite! The Sangria was amazing as always! Very short wait time for our meal and drinks! This is one of our favorite restaurants in Omaha!"

  • "Food is amazing, sangria is awesome, atmosphere is great. Only two complaints were: even with a reservation we had to sit very squished, basically in the middle of the isle...and the bill was outrageous for just two people. Would definitely come back, but we will have to wait for a very special occasion."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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!"
