    First timers. Enjoyed the food. Patatas were a fave. Sangria was unremarkable and our server got lost for about 15 minutes in the middle of dinner and we were dying of thirst 😇

    This is our second time here and while the food and drinks are delicious, the service was very slow this most recent time. Not only that, but for such a nice place it was just not as clean as I’d expect. Crumbs all over table and seats, bathroom dirty, etc. Will go again but hope to see some improvements.

    As a frequent albirino guest always like the interesting menu. The eggplant and honey is a favorite (they have changed the recipe a bit ) I liked it before. The octopus is unique. Sangria is so good. Burrata salad is good but like more incrediants. Our server was attentive as we were sitting in corner. Cheese board different no sliced Manchebo cheeses which we liked better. Will return to dine.

    When shown our original table on a busy Saturday night we were going to be uncomfortable with it. The hostess and another staff member (a manager?) did whatever was necessary and got us a table that was perfect. Once seated service was excellent, several suggestions were great and the taste of our choices was outstanding. This was our first time at this Terra Momo restaurant and it was as good as anticipated.

    Everything was delicious! If you order the paella, make sure you order it with your tapas because it take a while to make. The only issue I had was the noise level. It was very hard to hear my partner. There’s nothing to soak up the noise in the restaurant.

    Our service experience was friendly and helpful. Jen was a great help with advice and suggestions, as this was our first visit. The food presentation was very nice and the food was delicious. The ambiance was nice visually, but the noise level could use some acoustical management. There was too much reflective noise from the room. The pricing was a little higher than expected, although we enjoyed the food enough to return.

    Went here for the first time tonight in a party of four. We ordered nine different tapas dishes and a salad to share. Also wine and sangria. There was a great variety of tapas along with other dishes to choose from, including paella. The food was all excellent, served hot , very fresh and well seasoned and presented beautifully with excellent enhancements/sauces, garnish, etc. I liked the pacing of the meal, with dishes served one or a couple at a time, which we all shared. The service was great and the environment was modern, classy but comfortable. I highly recommend this restaurant. We will definitely be back.

    Got there early and enjoyed a drink at the bar. Friendly host and bartender. Dinner was fine but not memorable. Had some tapas and ordered the paella. Again, good but not great. Paella stick to the bottom of the skillet. Server wasn’t really attentive and I had to flag her down to get drink refills. She did t know what kinds of beers they had so I asked for a light lager. I got a wheat beer instead. By 10:30 on a Friday night, they had the lights turned up and were stacking chairs while we were still eating. Not a big deal, but noticeable. I would probably go back but it won’t be the first restaurant that comes to mind.

    We’ve been here a few times and it never disappoints. Ended up sitting at the bar (by choice). The waitress was wonderful and recommended the perfect wine for me. Ate a great mix of foods and it was all delicious. Started with the citrus green salad followed by eggplant, octopus, chorizo, Brussel sprouts, steak skewers. All the dishes were good. Highly recommend.

    Worst. Experience. Ever. My friend and I went to Albarino on a quiet Weds night. The waitress explained that the small plates would be brought out as they were done, and were meant for sharing. We started with the caesar salad, which was nice. We then had bread with a tomato sauce. Also good. Then we ordered the vegetable paella. We said that since we had already had salad and bread, we only wanted a single serving to share between the two of us. The waitress said that was fine. I then asked if the paella had eggplant in it, as I'm allergic to eggplant. She said no. We ordered it. When it arrived, I spooned some on my plate, and with the first bite, the inside of my mouth started to burn and my throat started to swell. I examined the vegetables carefully, and there were pieces of something that looked like eggplant. I called the waitress over, she told us she had double-checked with the cook, but that she would send the manager over. The manager came over and admitted that he had talked to the sous chef, who had decided to add eggplant tonight, apparently without telling anyone. The manager asked me if I wanted to order something else, but by now, my mouth and throat were so uncomfortable that I told him no thank you. He said, "We want you to leave here happy. What can I do for you?" I said, "why don't you just take the paella off the bill?" He found this a very odd request and said if he did that, he was going to take it away from my friend, who was still eating hers. And, what? Throw it away, out of spite? We said she would finish hers, but I couldn't eat any more, and he rolled his eyes at us and walked away. When the bill came, we found that they charged us not for one serving, but two, and had then taken one off the bill. We explained that we had only ordered one serving, and he said, "Yes, but there are two of you." I guess at Albarino, tapas aren't meant to share. And leaving happy? Not a priority. Throat still swollen today. Never again.

    We enjoyed the tapas, but would probably not rush back. The price relative to the portion size was on the high side, even for tapas. The Tuna Tartar was tasty but far too small. I disliked the Albarino flight, as the three selections were bland and boring. Our favorite was the meatballs and the eggplant!
