Espania is one of our favorite restaurants. Paella and seafood dishes are consistently superb. Service is excellent. While there is no bar and the wine list only fair, the appetizers, salads and entrees are always special, and you will enjoy a relaxed but elegant evening..

Very good variety of specials and menu items. Only downside is that the chef relies too much on cumin. The last time we dined there a couple of years ago there was no cumin in any of our entrees. The hot bread was excellent.

Outstanding service, multiple servers kept things flowing but not rushed. Highlights were eggplant stack & curried shrimp. Anchovy app just to-do. Good wine list, no hard liquor served.

Server was excellent with respect to peanut allergy at our table. We ordered 5 tapas items - all very fresh and unique. Entrees - Paella rice was reminiscent of Chinese fried rice. Some loved it a our table. Others felt not authentic.

This is about as authentic Spain as you can get without going to Spain. The tapas were great and the paella matched anything we have had in Spain. Great wine list, reasonable prices; what more do you need!!

First time visit to Espana. We have wanted to come here for a long time, and we brought friends from out of town finally to try it. It was terrific! The tapas were outstanding; the Sangria was superb; the ambience was excellent and the paella was the best! We will definitely be back, because there are just too many great things on the menu that we want to try!

The service was impeccable we were served by Omar. The wait time is reasonable. The prices are very reasonable. We had the escargot, the duck confit empenada and the pressed and grilled calamari steak. OMG all super tasty highly recommended by Tracey and Ricky at Hoyt house
