Took over 1 hour to get our dinner after ordering. The entire time we were waiting no one came to check on the table or give any update as to when we were going to be served. Also had to watch people seated after us receive their food while we waited.

While the food was superb, the wine (we ordered a house red) well chosen, I was most taken by the feeling of being celebrated or feted. The thoughtful and experienced staff respected us (I waqs with my wife) and enjoyed providing us with a good meal and delightful time.

The waiters were a bit older than other restaurants but they are very friendly and professional. The service was impeccable. The paella was moist and very tasty, the shrimps with garlic sauce are just right and not over cooked, the croquets were done perfectly, crispy outside and creamy inside. The harp player played some nice old romantic music and didn't overwhelm our conversation.

Had my birthday party for 17 people. Service was excellent, very attentive. Sangria kept flowing and had half a dozen main course choices and numerous appetizers. And the cake was beautiful and delicious. Have also gone for meal for two and just as good.

I've been meaning to come here for years and, now that I have been, am upset I didn't make it happen sooner. Classic Spanish cuisine, wonderfully prepared and presented. The paella was the best I have had on this side of the Atlantic. The wait staff is a well-choreographed team. We will be back again and again!

Loved eating here. I've brought my godchildren and friends here. Nice portions and attentive staff. LOVED LOVED the paella! I left leaving and looking over my shoulder at the other patron's paellas... and I was still full!

I have been here several times and it has always been good. However, on this visit I found the service to be lacking. They forgot to bring an appetizer. I explained the exact dish that I wanted and received something totally different and the waiter never came to the table to see how our meal was going. Whether it was 4th of July weekend or not, it was not the excellent service I have come to expect. I will go back, but not on a holiday weekend.

Four of us enjoyed Marbella very much. While the location (in a hotel) isn't ideal, the food ranges from good to excellent. One of our party, who'd recently vacationed in Marbella, Spain, said that his seafood paella dish was as authentic and tasty as any he'd had in Spain. The service by the waitstaff is cheerful and knowledgeable. We'll be back.

I reserved a table for four and at the last minute my daughter arrived and she was pleasantly surprised when they made room ( comfortable) for all. This was my wife's 75th birthday and Marbella is one of her favorite restaurants and for good reason the service and staff are excellent least we mention the out standing preparation and taste of there food. I highly recommend Marbella for any occasion.

Marbella is great for authentic Spanish cuisine in an elegant setting. I had one of my favorite meals--seafood paella with a gazpacho appetizer. My friends were happy with their dishes as well. The service was great, but the waiters were a little too attentive/intrusive. Asked my friend 2-3 times if she wanted some Sangria when she said initially she did not want to drink. Sangria is made to order and delicious. They were also out of my first 2 desert choices but I still had an excellent desert--profiteroles. I have been going to this restaurant for many years and highly recommend it.

I've wanted to try this restaurant for a long time. Really enjoyed this restaurant especially since it has a large selection of seafood items on their menu. There were other items on the menu that would please most palates. It has old world charm and the wait staff was very attentive.

Authentic Spanish cuisine. We enjoyed everything we ordered- grilled calamari, stuffed mushrooms and the seafood paella, which my mother and I shared and we still took home leftovers. Delicious sangria too! Don't let its location in the Best Western hotel put you off.

I enjoy this restaurant and never had such a bad experience from Marbella. Not only the restaurant was up to capacity but the service was terrible. We had a 5:30 reservation and were given a table few minutes after, ordered a pitcher of sangria to enjoy what is always a delicious meal. Our order was taken a little before 6 pm, after 3/4 of sangria done and looking at the watch we reliance we were very hungry and looked at the watch and notice it was 7:20pm. After requesting 3 times for our food to different people including the manager didn't get an answer and we just paid for the sangria an left.
I don't think I'll come back in a very long time, and specially for a mothers day.

Never again on a Saturday evening before a holiday. While the food was excellent, as it has been in the past, the wait-staff was inattentive and very slow and the noise level was so high as to be oppressive. We had to leave before dessert/coffee to escape.

Classy is not a word often used in the industry. But after decades of dining out, I can honestly say, that while I am not of fan of every dish here (very few that I don't like), the food is wonderful and flavorful, the decor is very tasteful (like a Moroccan feel to it) and the service has no equal in the area.

Salud!
