Been here many, many times, first time for a birthday. Food is always excellent as well as the service. Nice wine list too. I specified a "birthday" on my reservation, and they had the table decked out with balloons and a card, plus a birthday dessert. Made the evening special. thank you!

I celebrated my birthday at Emilio's. The tapas selection was good and every dish we ordered taste good. We ate at Emilio's in the past and I think they have improved on their menu and taste. They send me balloons and birthday card right after we settle at our table. Birthday dessert at the end. Staff was very friendly, absolutely great value.

Food is always good and the paella is the best although they have cut back on the size of the paella. We used to have enough leftover for addl meal but now just a snack size to take home.

We just love this restaurant for any reason or occasion. Our grown children now consider Emilio's their favorite place to unwind and relax.

This is the second time we ate at Emilios and the seating is a little cramped. The food is very tasty and the waitstaff pleasant and helpful. It can get noisy; when we arrived a family of eight was eating and the noise level was moderate. As we were leaving a group of eight (friends/family?) sat down and were very noisy.

We have dined with Emilio and his great staff for 25 of he 29 years they have been in business. Never disappointed. Daily specials are always enticing. From time to time we check the regular menu looking for an old favorite.

Great atmosphere. Cold tapas are very good. Hot tapas had great sauces/taste but the meats /fish were warm at best and seemed premade. Would go back get the cold tapas and the paella
