Awesome, as always. Food was perfect. Waitress was attentive. Great spot for special occasions or for an everyday meal.
Gracias....thank you so much...
I LOVED my Server, Luisa(sp?)! She gave & my 1st awesome service. The date went so well we were the last ones closing the restaurant. I was also happy to see Emilio (my dear friend!) as I’ve been a customer along with my family for over 30yrs! It’s my favorite place in the burbs!
Gracias Mary, we appreciate your loyalty.
My experience at the restaurant was great. The food we ordered was delicious, portions just right. Our waitress recommended few things for us, she took really good care of our needs. It was my birthday and my son mentioned something about it, so she came back with a little icecream cake and a candle, I got my happy birthday song and I felt very good about how nice it was. It was a dinner to remember.
I had my birthday dinner at Emilio's last year too amd I am looking forwad to next time.
Gracias! I appreciate your comments
This is has been a wonderful restaurant for a long time and never fails to disappoint. Having the chance to talk with Emilio before being seated is always a treat. Will go back again, and again and again.
Gracias for your rating and feed back!
I would let them know how its different from a standard entrée based meal. We liked the various choices but being new to this type of meal were left a little unsatisfied with the quantity or size of portions ..salmon & Ham too thin , calamary very rubbery and different from traditional fried. Desserts were great !
I'm sad to know our server did not ask if you had been to our restaurant before! At that time they should have told you about Tapas and sharing! I'm stunned and disappointed they did not communicate this to you. I apologize for us. Please contact me for a refund on the items you did not like. Ann-Marie
The food was delicious as usual.
Gracias For Your Feed back! We really appreciate it.
Food was delicious and service was impeccable. All while listening to live guitar music. Amazing!
Gracias for your rating and feed back. So happy you enjoyed our Friday nite music!
It is always an enjoyable experience from the food, to the sangria, and the ambiance. We were lucky enough to have live musicians playing while we dined. I am never disappointed that is why we return often.
Gracias for your rating and feed back! We enjoyed seeing you and the family!
Tried some new things chosen by our friends and they were all very good.

Offer a good selection of tapas with reasonable pricing. Always enjoy dining at Emilio's weather is for group gatherings or for celebration. This time, particularly enjoy their Fruit Del Mar, seafood soup with super flavor

Emelio's was just as good as ever. It's the first time we were able to take advantage of their happy hour specials. Great deal!
Gracias! We appreciate your feed back...
As always the best and was wonderful seeing Chef who walks among his patrons. I have never been disappointed there. Had the beets with eggplant and the artichoke tapas which was new for me and delicious as well.
Gracias for your rating and feed back, we really appreciate hearing from our guests....
We love the food. The staff out does themselves every single time. Friday night early bird special and live music!
Gracias, gracias and gracias for the kudos!!
Emilio’s is always great. Tried some new dishes. The empanadas and spicy meatballs were delicious. Our waitress was super sweet and recommended we try the cold asparagus and it did not disappoint. The red sangria is a must. It was beautifully decorated for the Christmas season.
Gracias for your rating and feed back! Have a great new year!
We have been coming to emilios since he opened on 1988. We have never been disappointed.always an enjoyable evening.
Wow! Thank you so much for those thoughts! We appreciate your comments.

Emilio’s is doing everything right! Their food & service is amazing. We go there all the time!
Gracias and thank you for your feed back....we really appreciate it!
We enjoyed another New Years Eve at Emilio’s. Everything was perfect. Every year there is something new to try. Truly the best food in the western suburbs.
Wow! Thank you so much! It was another great NYE....thanks for joining us again.
Great food as always
It was NYE, so we expected it to be a bit loud, but great food, fantastic service as always.
Gracias for your rating and feed back.....it was a fun and festive evening. We're happy you could join us!
My husband and I were there for an early New Years Eve dinner. From beginning to end it was a perfect evening. The food great, our server Alfredo was fantastic and was very attentive. We had a great time! We will be back!
Thank you so much for your kind words. I will tell Alfredo about your review he will be very happy! Gracias
I was really looking forward to dinner since I hadn't been to Emilio's in some time. What a disappointment. Started with a glass of Champagne which was flat. Drank it anyway because I could not get our server's attention. My other complaint was our hot dishes were lukewarm at best, some were cold. I have no intention of returning again and have already told my family and friends not to bother.
Hola Cadance....im so sorry that you had a disappointing NYE. I'm truly shocked your cava was flat as we served so much of it, but never the less, I apologize. Your hot food being served cold is also not acceptable, again I'm sorry. Please contact Ann Marie for a refund.
Went their to celebrate birthdays and had an amazing experience! The food and service was so incredible!
Gracias! We are so happy to be part of your celebration!
Awesome as always!!!! Great service , amazing food! The best Sangria!
Dessert was as good as the meal!
Thank you Emileo for sharing your amazing gift with all of us
What a wonderful review! Gracias 😊
What a friendly, joyous restaurant. Excellent service and great food. The waitress managed our large table subtly and well, to make sure we didn't all order the same food to share. My favorite dish was the garlic potato salad, followed by a beef dish. Desserts were also worth waiting for, especially the cake. Highly recommend.
Gracias Laura! i think you for a great review of my restaurant....and thank you for recommending us!
Always enjoy going to this restaurant! Has been a favorite of my family since they opened.
Gracias! To you and your family..
Great tapas restaurant with authentic Spanish cuisine. Would definitely recommend Emilio’s to anyone.
Gracias for your rating and feed back, we appreciate your comnents.
Great food, great service. One of our favorite restaurants since it opened. Favorite are the escargot, grilled octopus, garlic potato salad,. A totally fun and delicious experience.
Wow, thanks for that great review!
I reviewed Emilio's Tapas before, and not much has changed. We've been there a few times, but this was the second time we've been there on Christmas Eve. On a holiday, even though you make a reservation a couple of weeks in advance, I always expect to hear "were running a little behind", "your table won't be ready for about 20 minutes or a half hour." I didn't hear that here either year. We came in at the time we reserved, and were seated immediately. They really have it together on reservations. They were crowded, but considering how busy they were, service was excellent. Everything came out at the proper temperature, and not a long wait. They must have had 20 people in that kitchen. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful, especially on selecting wines. We took our time, ordering several tapas, and never felt rushed. The only drawback was even though there were only 2 of us, the table was rather small. I understand that have to do that, in order to accommodate a lot of guests, but it doesn't leave much room, especially if you have multiple dishes on the table. It's a bit of a "cramped" feeling. The food is remarkable. I wish I had room to fit in a few more dishes, but my girlfriend and I were stuffed after about 8 different choices, and had to leave room for one of the unique desserts. This is definitely a 5 star restaurant.
Craig....im just over whelmed with joy with your glowing review! Gracias from our small family to yours! You made my year, thank you! I'll be sure to show Roberto as well...he will be thrilled!
Good food, variety, quaint atmosphere, friendly
Gracias for your rating and feed back !
We were there to celebrate our wedding anniversary and they gave us the best service. We even received a complimentary dessert to share. The flamenco show was spectacular. And the food never fails to amaze us. Thanks as always.
Congratulations! I know we forgot to help you celebrate last time....we appreciate your kind words Daisy.
Quality of food is quite institutional. Chicken croquet had ground up chicken gristle in it and the escargot was suppose to be on toast points. They were served on hard over grilled toasted cocktail bread that you would break your teeth on.
Sangria was water down with no sangria taste.
Don't know how he stays is business. I guess his customers really donot know real GOOD Spanish tapas.
Ouch! Yes, that hurts. I'm not sure about your private note asking me to look at your review in "survey". What survey? This "review" is all I get. So let allow me rebuttal. Our food is freshly made by our kitchen staff every day. We prep and cook all of our own food, nothing is brought in all ready cooked or even prepped. Yes, the chicken croqquettas are ground chicken and herbs, not grissel.
We went to Emillios’s for my birthday. We had Sangria. We ordered our some of our favorites which were delicious. They gave us a little Birthday dessert. Thanks!
Gracias for your 5* rating and great review!
Emilio's Tapas has good food. However the little plates are too big. When they first opened many years ago, my daughter and I ordered about 5 different "little plates". They were indeed just a mouthful. That was wonderful because we were able to sample so many different offerings. So keep in mind that the food is great but the little plates aren't so little.
Dear Willa...that you for your review. While I do get a review on portion size, it's always about the tapas are too small! But thank you for your feed back...
Great service. Food could have been hotter temperature-wise.
Thank you for your feed back! So sorry about the temperature! Yes, it was busy and servers are not able to get food out of window fast enough....usually we have a runner, but unfortunately we didn't have one last night....my appologies!
We have enjoyed Emilio’s for many years. I do have to tell one detail that was disturbing. My wife and I split the check with another couple. When the separate checks arrived, the suggested tip was based upon the entire check amount, not the actual amount of our split check.
Both couples felt this was misleading and dishonest. I have never experienced this before.
The dish described as Pate wasn’t really Pate after-all, I would not order this again.
I'm sorry you didn't care for chef Emilio s country style pate....he does make other types, but loves this one with pistachios. Thank you for your review and rating.
Small plates and paella; they do a great job. My partner loves the desert
Gracias for your rating and feed back!
The profiteroles were a hit for 4 who had never eaten them. All of the food was great and so was service.
