Awesome place with great atmosphere. Would definitely visit again.

Random, but one thing is missing is quality Spanish bread! Like what is this wonder bread they are serving?! A crunchy baguette would be more appropriate.

Andalucia was a great dining experience! Our reservations were for 5 o’clock and we were seated immediately. This was our first time and our waitress was kind enough to give us some recommendations. We ordered the tapas platter which is 6 tapas. The food was all very good. We will definitely visit here again.

This place was amazing! We had a reservation and were seated immediately. The service was prompt, friendly, and knowledgeable. The tapas were larger portion sizes than I was expecting and the taste was phenominal. We ordered 6 tapas to share amongst the 2 of us and couldn't finish them. The live music and flamenco dancers were the perfect entertainment for the evening. We cannot wait to go back and try more of the menu!

This was our 4th visit to Andalucia, and I have to say that I love it, love it, love it more every time we go there. The authentic Spanish tapas are wonderful, and the live flamenco music and flamenco dancing add an extra-special romantic charm to the surroundings. Amount our favorite tapas are the pulpo (octopus) bites cooked with peppers and onions, the chicken livers marinaded and cooked in a slightly spicy sauce, and the roasted lamb on skewers. The seafood paella is excellent here, as well. They also make fantastic bar drinks, and have a varied wine list to match. This is among my favorite restaurants in all of Houston.

The tappas we ordered when just okay (usually a lot fresher and hot). The Paella was terrible. We got Paella for 4 and it was dry without any flavor. The mussels and clams were sandy. I have been there several times and it was good before, but I feel the service was bad too. I had to constantly call the waitress and ask for service. She never brought me my 2nd drink and it was very frustrating. We were celebrating my mom's 78th birthday and it was very disappointing.

Overall loved it! The band was amazing and very engaging, the place was not super loud that we could not hear each other although there was a live band performing! You could still have a conversation without having to yell.

The food was below average. We have been here before and the food was much better then. Virtually everything we ordered tasted like it was sitting around all day then zapped in a microwave just to get it above room temperature. I like the live show, but we expect much more from the food especially considering the price.

They wanted to seat us in a corner - when there was almost nobody in the restaurant.
Had to slightly argue to get this changed. Not good!
Ordered 4 plates and got 3, even though 4 were on the bill. not good!

Went here for my 8th year anniversary with our six year old daughter. My wife and I enjoyed the tapas, sangria, and dinner. Of course seeing the live flamenco dancing made the night even better. Seeing my daughter clapping her hands to the beat of the flamenco made it a happy celebration for our family.

We loved it here! The food was great and the server was very nice. For some reason they wanted to seat us at one of the hightop tables even though there were plenty of the regular ones. They did not come back often to fill drinks or check on how the dinner was. The food was very tasty but the wait was long for the food, but at least they let us know in advance that their kitchen was very busy. The flamenco band was awesome. The dining area is quite crowded and very little space between tables and hard to carry a conversation. Good for parties and families with kids.

Needed a place for dinner before the show at Toyota Center. Perfect choice. We ordered the 6 tapas platter for the three of us. Pretty place - variety of foods - quick service - short walk to the venue. We’ll be back.

We reserved a table for my mother in law’s birthday and we had an amazing time. The food was good and the entertainment was absolutely an experience. The manager welcomed us and made a point to speak to the birthday girl and was very accommodating. The music and dancers put on quite a show and I highly recommend this place to celebrate anything from a first date to a party.

What a remarkable night we had here. From the ambiance to the food and music, i enjoyed every bit of it. the shrimp tapas dish is my favorite, but the steak and salad were good too. the beef oxtails taste like grandma showed up to help out....of course you want to water your buds down with a bottle of wine of their sangria.

Andalucia was a great pre-Rockets game stop, just a couple of blocks from Toyota Center, with $10 event parking garage next door. Happy Hour is great value on House Wines (esp. Spanish) and fun, interesting Tapas. I LOVED all four tapas that we ordered: Tapas Bolitas (Moroccan Meatballs (plain-tasting, but in a yummy spicy cumin pepper sauce), Pulpo a la Brasa (Grilled octopus, potatoes, red onion, peppers, celery and olives), Bombas de Queso (Fried goat cheese balls topped with spicy honey drizzle, over fried leeks) and *Coliflor* (Cauliflower fried with spicy red pepper- my all-time FAVORITE). My husband ordered the Cordero Tagine (Lamb tagine with apricots & almonds, Served with couscous) He found the meat tough and wondered if it was poor quality, or just not stewed long enough.
The place was LOUD with Rockets and Spurs fans, and some after-work Christmas parties that were rowdy. Fortunately, we were at the bar area, at a narrow, high table, so we could just hear each other.
The bar was slow to fill our wine order, but our server Patrick was excellent and very knowledgeable about the food.
Can't wait to go back.

Had to leave after waiting for 45 minutes and hadn't even gotten our wine yet. Had a Rockets game to be to so had to leave and get food at the Toyota center. Not a good experience. Food looked good that other people were eating! Wouldn't know personally........ unfortunately!

Can't wait to go back. My best friend and I had a date night and made reservations at Andalucia for 6:30 pm. When we got there it wasn't too busy, but by the time we left at 8pm it was filling up. We went on a Saturday and at 8:30pm on Saturday nights they have live music and flamenco dancers. I wish we could have stayed but we had another show to get to. We ordered the Agava Margaritas which were spot on! Our waiter Marco was fantastic! He suggested we order the 6 Tapas plate and I'm so glad we did, we ate nearly everything because it was all soooooo good.
