Years ago, before paved floors, Spanish bar keeps would cover their drinks with a napkin to keep dust from falling into their customers' drinks. The napkins eventually evolved into small plates to hold food and from there, the food on top of the drink became known as "tapas".

This place is a Mesa gem! The food just gets better and better! Among our favorites are lamb sliders ("Lamborghini ") and "Date With a Pig" (bacon wrapped date).... Yum!
Our waitress at our last three visits was Veda, who is delightful.

A bit overwhelming at first -- so crowded, so noisy. Should we leave? Let's give 'em a chance. Glad we did. They got the job done somehow. Fun food, fun staff. They can do it!

We are just visiting the area but had this place on out to do list from our previous trip last year. It was just as good as we remembered and we’ll be coming back a few times before we head home.

The restaurant was warm and welcoming. We did not have to wait for our table and they brought us two glasses of sparkling wine to celebrate our anniversary. Although the place was packed, we had no problems having a conversation. The food was great!

As good as the previous time. Inventive, imaginative tapas! The "Lamborghini" remains a hot favorite of ours.

Quick anniversary dinner. Very tasty! The new strand of lights they have hanging are very bright and VERY hot to sit next by. We didn't like that but the food and service were great.

I think they forgot our order because although our first few dishes came out quickly, our "main dish" took an extremely long time, which made us late to and wvent

This is a quirky, hard to find the first time, tapas restqaurant. It is cool, noisy, fun, crowded, very good food and friendly service, and affordable. I can't remember the dishes we ordered now about a month after our visition, but after my glass of Rioja I tried another excellent Spanish red from Ribera del Duero. Very fun wines. And the Wonder Woman movie playing without sound on the wall fit right in. Good luck finding it the first time you go.

Went on Friday nite. Low overall score but Tapas were all really good, esp Lamburgini, as usual. Problem was the drinks. They were really subpar. Margarita wasn't mixed right -> how do u mess up a margarita?? Granted the waitress did offer to re-do it, I declined as my faith was not there...as my friend's scotch based cocktail was also off as well~. It's a Tapas place... gotta have a bartender who can at least not screw up a margarita ?

My wife and I were visiting CA from TN and heard about Alcazar, so we decided to check it out. We're so glad we did. The food and atmosphere were excellent, the wait staff friendly and helpful, and the prices very reasonable. Alcazar is a great little gem of a place.

We went for our anniversary. The food was excellent. Fresh and tasted great. The tapas plates were perfect for two. They gave us two glasses of champagne for our anniversary. The specialty cocktails were great.

How fun! Tapas dining can be SO fun, and the staff and food quality makes Alcazar the very best in town. Period. A little noisy, but that might be the eight girls that took over an adjacent table. Server (Alvaro) was awesome!

I'm a big Alcazar fan and frequently recommend the restaurant for the terrific happy hour and drinks. I've never left disappointed and will continue to frequent Alcazar with family and friends. Special shout out to Anna for being fantastic :). She is often there when I go to dine and always gives my guests and me an incredible dining experience! Thank you, Anna!

Anna is excellent, always. I've noticed how busy one server gets when the restaurant is full. As a result, we have to wait for quite some time to place our orders. Sometimes we then miss the opportunity to order more on the happy hour menu. We like to graze and order wine. With only one person the wait can be a bit much. Again, Anna is GREAT! Another server would help!
