Shared the Portuguese stew with a friend and I cannot stop thinking about it! That broth was absolutely amazing and the mounds of tasty seafood didn't hurt. Just enough heat to keep you coming back for more. WOW!

Everything was delicious from the sangria and ceviche to the tenderloin and spicy grouper. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

We shared three tapas which were nicely prepared and comparable to tapas we have had in Spain. The wine selection was also good

As always our visit to Espana was amazing. The food never disappoints. It’s a true gem and good for any occasion. Thank you for showing my cousin and her husband how wonderful your restaurant is and serving the most delicious food. We left feeling satisfied and happy.

We visited Espana on Valentine's Day for dinner and made our reservations on Open Table prior to arriving from Pennsylvania. Even though we weren't locals, we still received a quiet window table in the corner, as requested. The service was very attentive by "G" and his fellow servers. The highlight of the dinner was the flan dessert, which was outstanding. We also ordered the sea bass special for the evening, which was very good. This is a very popular restaurant, so make your reservations early.

This was my second meal at España and I was disappointed. The sangria and bread and shrimp garlic were excellent But my seafood paella was botched. All the seafood was dried out and the rice burned down to the pot. Halfway through a waiter appeared and took my plate because they have forgotten adding the shrimp to the dish which they added then. Weird. My partners fish&shrimp main course was excellent, however as was the tiramisu and espresso. I should have complained about the paella but I didn’t. I will come back however.
