Went to Espana for date night without the kids. The staff was fantastic and accommodating. Our server was a bit slow and seemed to be the only one working the area of the restaurant we were seated in. The owner/manager was great about filling in however and took our order and ran our drinks. The specials for the evening were tremendous and the paella was prepared to perfection. Definitely a laid back dining experience, some of the tapas we ordered took a little longer to prepare but everything was well worth the wait. There was also live Latin music in the bar as we were leaving. I will definitely be returning.

Food was very very good. Nice prices for the amount of food. Sangria was delicious. Live Latin Jazz on this Saturday night was nice.

A great neighborhood restaurant. The service was very good as well as the tapas and the prices are reasonable. The noise level was too much though with the live music. You had to yell at each other to be heard.

Delicioso! is always what we're saying when we eat here - we've been here often enough where we can confidently say the food is excelente and we recommend this place to others. It is quiet is the earlier in the day (for a Sunday lunch is when we usually go), but does liven up in the evening (Saturday night dinner we've gone as well).

I love the stuffed peppers, lobster croquettes, and coconut flan!

It was a snowy night and the restaurant was empty, but it was nice to have a quiet dinner. We ordered apps and started with a salad for me and Galician soup(caldo Gallego) for my friend. We split boquerones (white anchovies), octopus with paprika & potatoes( pulpo a la feira as I call it), tortilla (Spanish omelette), and croquetas with ham. We each ordered a glass of wine and a small bowl of homemade potato chips was placed before us. The owner? manager ? spoke to us about my opentable request and why they no longer serve sardines. After dinner he was kind enough to offer us a liqueur that was made of herbs and very delicious. Overall we had a fantastic meal and would go back.

We have been here quite a few times and they never disappoint. Loved the lobster croquettes, paella and chicken in vodka sauce are so good. They surprised us by giving us a free dessert that said happy anniversary which I mention when I made the reservation through open table. A diamond in local restaurant in Suffolk county.

This was a last minute dining out find. I've passed by the place many times, and from the outside, it never caught my eye. Looks are deceiving as the inside is actually bigger than it appears from the outside. Based on good on-line reviews we gave it a try and were very happy. The service was excellent. The tapas we tried were all very good. Prices were very reasonable. I expect to be returning.

If I had to pick one area for improvement it is to have some wine pairing suggestions, or even some flights of wine for sampling.

From the moment you walk in to the moment you leave feel like a family experience. Nice and small an intimate. The best part is watching the owner take ownership and clear tables and help team and make suggestions to new customers. Octopus is wonderful and a must have. Will be back.

My wife and I went to this restaurant because we were out in the Stony Brook area. It was my first time there. Walking in, the restaurant has a strong musty odor. I am shocked no other reviewers mentioned it. It was overwhelming. You do get used to it, but I feel bad for anyone exposed to it on a daily basis. The service was very good. Everyone was polite and welcoming. The food however was just fine. The salad had strange pieces of asparagus in it that did not taste right, but we just picked them out. The soup was a pumpkin bisque that was nice. The empanadas were the highlight, they had white meat chicken and egg which was surprising but tasty. The flan was strange, it was more like a dense sponge cake that reminded my wife of her failed flan attempt at making flan. We ate some of the sugary egg syrup. I probably wouldn't go back here and I feel bad saying that because the staff was very nice, sorry.
