Sad to see one of my favorite restaurants close. It's too bad Dallas is not into Spanish cuisine.
Fantastic meal. Bruschetta, chorizo fritters, manchego cheese, shrimp, and cheese stuffed dates with an excellent cava. Will definitely be back soon!
My wife and I recently celebrated our anniversary at Casa Rubio and had a wonderful time. This is not our 1st time to eat there and every experience has been quite pleasing. The menu is broad and makes it easy to try something new whenever you go there. You have to be willing to move out of your comfort circle because many of the dishes will be 1st timers. One we tried was sardines with red and yellow peppers. My wife was more anxious to try this dish than I was, but it was really interesting and no where as fishy as I thought it was going to be. We started our meal with 2 cheeses and 2 charcuterie. Not something you find in many Dallas restaurants. Every thing we tried was very well prepared. Our waitress treated us very well and kept the pace of the meal slow as that is how we wanted it. It was a Monday night so the restaurant was not busy and the noise level was quite low. They also do not blast you with music. What they play is quite soft background. A pleasant change. Looking forward to going back soon.
The food was absolutely delicious. The charcuterie board was the best I've ever had. Iberico was fantastic. The paella was so fresh and delicious. You could feed 5-6 people with that one paella. The sherry selection was fabulous. Highly recommended.
Service and Food was great. Must try the Broccoli. The structure is the only thing I did not like about this place. But to be fair, the entire row of restaurants there appear to be made up simple and poorly constructed tin buildings.
Everything was great except for the service - very slow.
The food was exceptional but the server seemed a little inexperienced. But all in all, a very nice evening.
One of my favorite spots. Tapas are great, authentic, and ever changing seasonally and by availability, and the wine selection sports some unique bottles.
Paella wasn't great but everything else was.
Excellent and creative tapas and paella. Also like the wine pairings.
It's extremely loud depending on groups present. Food was excellent. Service was great.
When we realized we would be late arriving for our reservation I called Casa Rubia. I was told that it wasn't a problem and when we did arrive we were seated right away. The waiter was very helpful and all of our choices were delicious. We will definitely return again!
Best tapas in Dallas, bar none.
I've had the pleasure of eating tapas in many places. This is the real deal, which is so hard to come by in Dallas. Great service. Good (if limited) menu.
Wine list could use expansion.
Our dinner at Casa Rubia was very good and the service was outstanding. The atmosphere is sleek and trendy, which may not appeal to lovers of traditional tapas, which tend to be rustic. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. Parking can be a challenge on Friday and Saturday nights due to the congested nature of the Trinity Groves complex.
Good happy hour food deals. Service at the bar was very good. It didn't translate after we were seated. It's not that the servers didn't try...it's just that they seem very inexperienced in serving at this level. Dirty dishes from another table were set on our table while the server took our dishes. After we gave the Ok on the bottle of wine we chose, the server left with it and took it to the bar to open it. It was just odd.
We had heard this is one of the best restaurants in Trinity Groves and we agree. Our server was excellent and had great recommendations, especially considering we had a 7 year old and 10 year old with us. Food was very good and came out to our table promptly. If you like mushrooms you have to get the mushroom dish with egg on top. Fantastic. Not sure I would go again on a Saturday night as the area is really busy but would come back here.
Loved it. Jamon iberico was amazing!
We were here for Mothers Day brunch. Loved the cheeses and Serrano ham. Everything was very good. The kitchen did send one of our entrees out about 5-6 minutes before the other. No explanation from the waitress as to what happened. Would definitely go again.
Amazing food, beautiful presentation and outdoor seating brought me back to my time in Spain.
Everything was excellent. You have to get the octopus. Even if you think you don't like octopus. It's the chefs specialty and by far the best I've ever had.
Great food, great service. Enjoyed the recommendations of our waiter .
There isn't a bad restaurant in the whole Trinity Groves development, and Casa Rubia is the best IMHO. If you don't know about tapas, the wait staff can put together a great meal (including wine), and if you do know then it's even better. I try to eat here every time I'm in Dallas.
We had a wonderful dinner tonight. Our server, Gali, was great: very friendly, knew the menu well, and made excellent recommendations. There were quite a few dishes with ingredients we weren't familiar with. Gali did a great job describing them and was very helpful helping us choose items to order. Everything was delicious!! We loved the garlic shrimp, the Bocadillo and the Heritage pork short rib: can't wait to come back and try them again. In all, we ordered four tapas and two shared plates so we could try lots of dishes. That's a lot of food for two people (it was our choice to order that much, not the recommendation). We brought some home to enjoy again. We're planning to come back in two weeks and bring friends. Can't wait to try their paella!
Upon arrival the menu items online were not available. The restaurants excuse was that chef rotates menu.
We love Casa Rubia! Jessica is awesome, very helpful with the wine list which is all Spanish wines we weren't familiar with. The food is delicious, and the service is always great
Always a treat to dine here. Love the patte makes me feel im back in Spain...
First time for Easter brunch. It was wonderful!! Plan on this annually.
Their food is amazing! Their service is also good. We had a great time.
We went for birthday dinner with 6 other people. Had a great time. The food was very good and the pricing was moderate. Would definitely go again....!!!
Love this place. Our waiter was very wine knowledgeable. Love to fact menu is ever changing with the season.
Too much money for too little food. 400 for 4 people for 2 apps and 3 tapas and wine. Not great service after first course delivered.
One of the best Tapas restaurants I have been to in DFW. My favorite dish was the bacon wrapped dates-I am still thinking about them days later.
First time visit and chose to sit inside rather than outside. Inside decor is more refined and outside seating has more of a "carnival" type feel given the adjacent restaurants with patio seating. Food was quite good and equally matched by good/excellent service. Ask for Jesus' as your waiter and he will treat you right.
Casa Rubio continues to serve up very good dishes that are interesting and well presented. Service can vary but average is better than the norm in Dallas.
Service was slow but food was amazing
Two different times had to ask for our drinks three time s
The food was inconsistent....good shrimp, good salad, miserable octopus. Service started fine....prompt and attentive....but then our server disappeared (never saw him again, and someone else took over our table), and we waited forever for the next plate. And price was way too high for what we received....5 small plates, one glass of sangria....$91 with tip. Won't be back.
The food was delicious as always but the service was pretty bad. They were understaffed and you could really tell. My husband's drink arrived after our first 2 tapas and then about an hour later we got our paella. We have been there before and always had great experiences there so I hope it was just an off night because we really like this place.
Great drinks and beer. Loved the leisurely dining on tapas. Makes for good conversation. The waiter was very professional, made good recommendations. Skip the desserts.
The service was terrible. We never actually had a waiter. We had to give our order to random people that we could flag down to our table. It was not so busy as to excuse such poor service. The food was pretty good although some of it was over seasoned. I was really disappointed and had I not been with a fun group I would have had a very bad experience.
