I have been going to Cafe
I have been going to Cafe Espanol for many years-- in fact, I set up our office party to have there a few years ago. I felt like this last meal, the food was particularly tasty. Good service.

For those who love to try new food!
My daughter lived in Spain for four years, so is very familiar with (and loves!) that cuisine. I visited her there twice and love the food, too! This restaurant epitomizes a sense of joy in eating. The presentation was lovely, the taste was exquisite, and the portions were perfect. If you love gazpacho, this is the place for you! If you love boguerones, this place is ambrosia! If you love chorizos, this place is perfect! I have never been successful at making alcachofas myself, but this place did a great job! We were not rushed at all, and were well taken care of. My daughter and would recommend this restaurant to everyone!

A Home Run!!!!!!!!!
This was my first time at Cafe Espanol on Bleecker. I usually go to the one on Carmine,
but due to the poor reviews I decided against it. I was in charge of finding a restaurant for a friend's b'day celebration. The entire b'day crowd was pleased with this restaurant. The seafood was fresh, the drinks were delicious, and the overall menu had something for every plate. Home Run!!!!!!!!

Tapas, Sangria and Margaritas - fun
Had a fun and tasty lunch here this week with some friends from out of town. The very large choice of tapas plates, along with the friendly and relaxed service (combined with the pitcher of margaritas, made for a lunch, and very enjoyable lunch. All of the choices were made were very nicely prepared and served on a steady basis. This is a fun place for a couple or a group. Will be back again soon.

Walked past this place 100's of times and never walked in. Finally did. Sorry i didn't earlier. Tapas selection is quite large and food is flavorful because of food, not salt.

This place has been a solid
This place has been a solid favorite for over ten years now. Their food is always top notch and they have the best red sangria in any stateside restaurant by far. I'd recommend doing tapas if its your first time here as it allows you to try a bit of everything. The restaurant NEVER disappoints.

Best Chicken Parm!
Yes, it's a Spanish restaurant. The paella is very good. The shrimp in garlic sauce is delicious. We love their sangria. But we go there for the chicken parmesan. You must give it a try.

We have dined at Cafe Espanol
We have dined at Cafe Espanol many times. As always, the food was delicious and plentiful. In fact, four of us ordered the paellas because we have enjoyed them in the past. Our seating was in the outdoor area which was especially nice on a warm evening. Our leftovers provided a delicious dinner and a pleasant memory of a great time. We look forward to returning soon. Keep up the good job!

A special place
Our service was superb and we had the best grilled octopus anywhere!! This place has been around since 1979! Really good consistent food, Reasonable prices, large portions, and amazing service. Dinner even comes with a little salad, like the old days!

A neighborhood favorite
I go to this restaurant at least once a month. The food is plentiful,fresh and well cooked. Prices are reasonable. The sangria is delicious. Its old fashioned but in a good way-plenty of space and great service

Love the food.
We've been coming to this place for years and the food have never disappointed us. And that cannot be said about the atmosphere this time. The people at one of the table (4 women and 1 man) was extremely loud ,yelling and really screaming ( we assumed that was how hard they were laughing) we could barely here outsells thinking. It was not our best experience. This yme we were looking forward to leave. :(:(:(

Went there with out of town relatives (group of 8). Had to wait for about 20 minutes despite making reservation, which was annoying. But besides that, we enjoyed it a lot. Sangria was good. Food was yummy. Paella portion was smallish. Garden sitting was great for a clear fall evening.

Good Food, Service is slow
Great food. Service was as slow as could be. Had to repeatedly get the wait staff's attention.

Good times with good food
It was a good place to eat. I like that they give you extra food that other restaurants don't. You definitely get your money's worth. The staff are very nice. Overall no complaints.
