Great authentic Spanish tapas restaurant!! Food was amazing and staff was great! Will be coming back!

Very true to its Mediterranean heritage, This Tapa styled Spanish restaurant is a place you need to visit, whether your visiting San Fransisco or live here. It's been open for 20 years, information I was able to attain through the very accessible & experienced Chef/Owner. Everything was flavourful and quaint! I felt like I was back in Barcelona!

We had a great time at Alegrias. The food was terrific and the service was excellent. We will definitely be back.

Service was attentive and friendly and the food was very authentic and delicious. Everyone in our group of four (two couples) had a great time. We enjoyed sharing a number of small plates and loved the Flan for dessert!

We'd all noticed Alegrias for years but hadn't tried until the day of my partner's daughter's move into her Marina apartment. Gorgeous warm night and we walked here for dinner. All downhill from there. Although the service was excellent and the value/ambience good, the food was mediocre. No flavor to speak of except on the daily special octopus (served on a bland piece of boiled potato, which reduced the impact of flavor). Felt like we were eating in a 1950s version of a Spanish restaurant. Not up to San Francisco standards.

Was a bit disappointed in this restaurant. The crab cakes were good but the vegetarian croquette was not big deal and the octopus was not great and very tiny cut up pieces on boring slices of potato. Decent, but just nothing special...

Our neighborhood favorite! Love the vegetarian paella.

Food was somewhat average. Love the owners and the service. That is what we most like about the place but menu is a bit static and food was just OK for us.

Excellent service with knowledgeable staff. We had a quiet table near the front. Tapas were as expected in size but unexpected in taste: marvelous crack cakes that were crispy outside and soft inside and served with an amazing jalapeño sauce; prawns in a red garlic sauce that we mopped up with bread. We tried the calamari- served hot and freshly cooked but otherwise nothing special
Excellent sangria and paella
Would go back anytime we want something tasty and unique
Downside is parking as it is on the busy part of Lombard though there is a garage across the street
Definitely a new restaurant on our go to list

We were first seated in the back next to a bachelorette party which was very loud. I didn't even get a chance to mention it to our hostess, and she offered to move us to a quieter table. We have been here before and we love the tapas. Patatas Aioli are always a favorite. The Empanadas and the Croquetas were delicious! Setas al Ajillo (mushrooms) were also amazing! It was our first time ordering the seafood paella, and we were afraid it would be too much food after the tapas, but it was just the right size. The rice around the edges was a little crispy, giving it a crunch we loved. Every time we come here we try new dishes, and have never been disappointed.
