    The decor had a feel of the 70's with dark paneling on the walls. Appearance needs some sprucing up! Waitress had no idea what gluten was as I inquired about gluten free dishes... 2 appetizers I ordered were definitely gluten. However my salmon was nice and everyone seemed to enjoyed their meals.

    The food is always very good, but we went on a Sunday night -- and as they are closed on Mondays, we found they were out of a few items. Three of us had the tenderloin -- romancing the stone -- and the sweet potato cheese casserole. Both were very good. Desserts were yummy.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    I had been to Europa when they were located in South Hadley and being Portuguese, I was looking forward to a good Portuguese meal. Not only was I disappointed but I was mad! I ordered broccoli rabe as an appetizer and it was so tough that my jaw became sore trying to chew it. They also had the fans going because of the hot stone meals but it made my meal cold. I ordered the fried cod and they must have forgot to soak it because it was so salty that I could barely eat it and again our meals got very cold very quick because of the fans. I don’t complain at restaurants, I just don’t return but I really wish I had said something to the waiter about this meal. It was truly that bad. To add insult to injury I ordered a glass of white wine,which w

    This visit was our first, with a Groupon. Decor was dated, very 80's. The piped in music was awful/OLD. The menu was also quite large and without a discernable theme, on a busy night the kitchen could get bogged down. However, the food we got was surprisingly good for the most part- creative goat cheese and risotto ball appetizers, very tasty. Crazy Alfredo was a generous portion, worth price even for pasta, lots of chicken, etc. Salt cod did have lots and lots of bones, though, which really turned my husband off fish. In the end we agreed we would go back with another Groupon or with a group of friends. Comedy night looks fun!

    This was our 6th time at Eurpoa. The food and service has been excellent each and every time and we will continue to go here. However, this restaurant needs some serious TLC with the decor. First impressions could easily put people off and they'd miss out on delicious food and great service!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    My husband had salmon and I had the pasta special. The salmon was cooked just right, the spinach was delicious but the little rice thing on the bottom was a fried mess .....fried in old used grease you could taste. My pasta would have been delicious if it didn't have the funky red sliced peppers that gave it such a weird taste and over powered the dish so much that we took 2 bites each and couldn't eat it. Such a waste since the portion was so pleasing to the eye. We ended with their special Portugese dessert which was refrigerator burn. It happens to be one of my husbands favorite desserts and even he did not eat it. Our server was very polite and very attentive without being in my face which is a plus since I dine out a lot.

    I bought the groupon to give it another try. It was ok. Three if the four people at our table had the steak entree. The two steaks that we're cooked on the stone were great, the third had a big piece of grissel in the center that should be removed before serving. The sauces for the steaks were vinegar flavored. I had ordered chimichurri sauce snd it was a red oily mess. The fourth entree was the paella. It had no saffron, and some of the shrimp still had the shells and feet on them!!! I feel if you are going to cook classic dishes they should be done correctly or not at all. This dish was bland and not cooked well. The appetizers were fine. I would definatley not run back for another dinner.

    The food was great but the service was lacking. They automatically tacked 15% on to the bill, so probably figured they didn't really need to work for their gratuity. Took about 20 minutes to get drinks after being seated and the courses came out very slowly from the kitchen. The waitress was friendly, we just didn't see her frequently enough.

    The food is creative, delicious and amazing; but the restaurant itself could do with a face lift. I assume there is a late night club downstairs because the nice music from the dining room was competing this Saturday night with the boom-boom-boom from below. That kind of killed the mood but the service and food managed to win us over for a return visit but maybe on a Monday-Thursday night.

    First time at Europa and we will definitely return. Hot rock cooking was a good experience. My scallops and prawns were done perfectly and the rock was used by my husband to heat up bites of his brisket as he ate. All the wait staff was friendly and helpful although there were a couple of long waits. We weren't in a hurry so not a problem for us but anyone on a tight schedule may have been disappointed. Varied menu with alot of Portuguese dishes to try. Desserts are truely homemade according to our waiter. Cheesecake and flan were very good.

    The paella was delicious. We also ordered the new York strip steak on the stone. Although it was a fascinating way to get your meal, I probably would not order it again. I would be interested in ordering some of the other portugese dishes however. The ambiance needs some work, our service was remarkable! They haven't been open long so hopefully will work on the decor.

    What a shame! A restaurant with Portuguese owners that serves Kale soup that tastes like dish water! Grilled seafood was dried out. Paella was mostly rice. They tried and failed in South Hadley location and now they are on the same path! We had been there previously on Mothers Day for a buffet which was fantastic! What happened??

    Food was fresh. My husband had the pork on a stone, so he "cooked it himself" at the table. It was very good. I had the paella. LOTS of rice, clams, scallops, shrimp, prawns. It was good, the seafood maybe a tad overdone. Side salad was very nice--fresh and a good assortment of veggies.

    Service was very slow. We waited about 1 1/2 hours after being seated for apetizers and had to finally ask another wait person before they were delivered. The waiter apologized every time he visited our table, but spent much of his time filling our water glasses. The excuse given was that there was a 20 person party in the other dining room, but apparently he paid more attention to that party than his other tables.
