Ruined Valentine's Day! Overpriced, squeezed in a corner, waited 45 minutes for entree, paella was burnt. Sangria was ok.

My husband and I went to celebrate Valentine’s Day. They didn’t note they would have a set dinner menu, so we were surprised when we got there and were told that’s all they were doing. We understood, given it was a busy night.

The food was so-so but the service was sub-par. We waited about 30 minutes for our paella, again understandable because the dish takes long to cook. But then we waited 45 minutes for dessert (which was supposed to be chocolate cake and an almond layer cake), at which point I asked to take it to go. They packed up macaroons and called it our dessert. The real kicker was when we received the check and saw 18% gratuity had already been included. I definitely would ‘t have been as generous given the poor service we received.

I’m not going back, and I have every intention of telling everyone I go to avoid this place.

Also, the music was incredibly loud (very hard to have a conversation) and it was pretty warm inside. Not a very romantic setting for V-Day.

Waited more than 50 minutes to get the first single small dish (only for one person). Waited another 40 minutes to get another. It took almost three hours to finish all the meals. There was a 20% tip that was printed on the receipt.
For the price, the food was not good. Despite the long wait, the food was cold, steak was dry.

I'm not usually a person that gets upset in restaurants, but I was pretty angry for the first time.
Terrible experience.

The staff were friendly, helpful and polite but the food was lacking in flavor for my friends and I. The drinks were outdone by the amount of ice they put in there. The sangria tasted like watered down juice. Once all the ice was removed (which we did ourselves) the red sangria was actually pretty decent but it shouldn’t take that much work. At $32 the sangria pitcher shouldn’t be half filled and stuffed with ice to appear full. I do not recommend this restaurant and wouldn’t eat here again. The best thing about this place is the staff and the ambience so if that’s what you go to dinner for but food and drinks were a miss for us.

Not sure what happened to this place. I used to come here all the time for happy hour food and drinks, but after my last meal here, I will not come back.

Food/drinks: The happy hour menu used to be drinks and sangria for $5. It's now up to $6. Not much of a deal anymore, especially considering the food quality has gotten terrible. The shrimp was inedible. The tortilla was so overcooked and flavorless--it was like a burned diner omelette. The manchego came with 4 slices of cheese and ONE cracker. What??

Service: We arrived when the restaurant was empty except for one 2-top table in the back. The hostess sat my sister and me RIGHT next to that table (2 inches away) even though there were about 25 empty tables nearby. We asked our server if we could move one more table over and she had to check with the hostess first.... ok.... Then the server kept taking our drinks before we'd finished them. She was very pushy about us ordering more. Then after we signed the check, so collected the check from us while we were still there finishing our drinks and food (big pet peeve of mine). The restaurant was still half empty at this point, so it wasn't like we were taking a table they needed.

Overall, I was embarrassed that I'd chosen this place for a meal out with my sister. The food and service used to be great. Not sure what happened. I won't be back.

I had my friend's 33rd birthday here. This place is huge. There was 2 floors. The top floor had multiple rooms. It was playing great 90's music that you want to dance to and had a hip vibe. It is not a place where I would describe as a place for a quiet night of conversation. The service was a bit slow to start as there were large groups all around us celebrating all around us, but we did not mind as we were sitting there in a cozy environment catching up. Definitely not one of those places which rushes you to place your order or disrupts your conversation to do so. (I hate that.) However, once we placed out food orders, the food came out hot and delicious. I think everything came out in 15 minutes. I told them it was my friend's birthday multiple times. They forgot and served us desserts without the song and candle, which they did for everyone else. I told them again and they came out with free truffles with candle and song. I can't really get mad at anyone there as everyone was so sweet. They gave us a free carafe of wine that you have to pour skillfully into you mouth if it is a special occasion. Overall, I would come again happily.

I was hoping for a better experience but overall the service was very poor. Food quality was good but not above average. They even forgot to bring out one of the tapas that were ordered. The server was not attentive and for a restaurant that was only 25% filled it felt dismissive.

I went this restaurant for Paella, however, after we eat almost half of Parlla Marisco, we found the string or small rope (inedible). But still, manager took care of things, so I would say service is really good but please check the Paella before you guys serve.

First time in NYC and this place was highly recommended by a friend. Went to barraca and we all absolutely loved it! A few of us tried the bottomless sangria for brunch and it was amazing
Our waiter was just impecable and the food was incredible. You will not be disappointed. Next time I’m in town I will be coming back!

Amazing time! We enjoyed some of the traditional tapas like patatas bravas, the bacon wrapped dates, the brussel sprouts. WOW. I was sad that they were out of the coca de calabaza but I will definitely be back. Their Rioja sangria is a total home run. If you go all out, plan on spending $50 a person. Oh - and don't forget to try the churros. They are OUTRAGEOUS.

We just went with tapas and Spanish beer and had a really nice meal at a fair price.

Definitely worth another return visit! Popular and deservedly so!
