                                                We were so looking forward to eating at this restaurant for the 1st time. Our experience started out perfect. Until the end, asked for water never got it our last tapas was a special paella arancini was frozen in the middle. Wanted to end our dinner with the date cake & the churro martini it took so long for our waitress to come back we said forget it, left disappointed. I did asked for the amount of our frozen tapas to come off our bill, which they did.

                                                Creative, flavorful and different. Great place to excite your taste buds. They go out of the way to accommodate and make you as a patron feel valued. The staff is great. The food even better. The paella and tapas make for a great meal only complimented better by a glass of their sangria. Bon appetite.

                                                We waited an hour for our paella . Kitchen was super slow and it was a Sunday night with only 5 tables seated . So disappointed in the lack of flavor when it arrived . Needed salt , lobster overcooked.

                                                we frequent Albarino's from time to time and never any issues BUT this time our steaks were awful. The waitress took 1 steak off the bill and that's the proper move, as I ate mine BUT my wife didn't eat hers BUT it leaves a bad taste in our mouths (figuratively and literally!!)

                                                Worst experience yet at this restaurant. Have been there many times in past and has been great. This time the food lacked flavor, was dry and we had very poor service. Failing grade.

                                                Delicious tapas and a great wine list. This is our first visit back since before the pandemic. Sadly, like many other restaurants, they have reduced the size of the menu, so there aren't as many tapa offerings, but still more than enough. The wine list offers four types of sangria, and dozens of bottles in all price ranges from $30 bottles to bottles that sell for more than $300. It was a busy Saturday night and the kitchen was a bit slow, but the tapas were served one at a time with plenty of time to enjoy them between courses. Definitely worth the trip.

                                                Great food and excellent service. Really good recommendation on a nice Spanish wine. Look forward to going back to Albarino.

                                                Food was excellent! Always get the eggplant. Loved the vegetable flat bread too. Our server was great, sweet and knowledgeable about the menu and how things we’re prepared. Great place for getting small plates and trying new things.

                                                We enjoy coming to this restaurant a few times a year, it was a bit disappointing yesterday the food wasn’t up to par as on past occasions. Maybe the reasoning was that it was Sunday evening but it was extremely odd with dessert time. There were 4 of is, two ordered the date cake, 1 churro and 1 creme brûlée. Everything was brought out one by one, with it being more than 5 minutes between each dessert being brought out. With at least 20 minutes passing from the 1st person getting their dessert and the last person getting theirs. No apologies or comments about them from the waitress, who seemed to be in I don’t want to be here mood. We otherwise enjoyed our meal and hope we have a better experience next time we dine.

                                                Love the environment but it is getting a bit pricey for a tapas place. Small plates that are costing almost as much as a full-meal elsewhere. Probably won't go too often.

                                                Everything is always very good, been here many times but one disappointment was they changed the classic paella. Use to be yellow juicy rice and crispy on the bottom and truly was amazing, now its good but not even close to what it was. Hope they change it back but everything else including the svc and drinks were great!

                                                Our server, Joe was excellent - knowledgable and prompt. Eggplant appetizer is great, chorizo was flavorful and juicy, octopus was tasty.

                                                Albarino is my go-to place for drinks, appetizers and the most delicious paella in Monmouth county. What I like best about it is the flexibility to order small plates or full meals or both, depending on the occasion.
