    Ambiance was great and service was excellent. Food and drinks came out slow but other than that an excellent experience. Value of food also could be better. Paella for one person would have been nice because we wanted to try another dish, but if order it has to be for two. The quality of the food was fantastic. The hidden speakeasy also a very nice touch.

    First things first, if you are from Spain this is a hit or miss so probably go somewhere else. Croquetas and Tortilla were really good, the huevos estrellados were also good, but they should charge a couple extra bucks and use a better jamón. We had the paella negra, and even though the flavor was there, the rice was extremely overcooked, to the point that all the grains were exploded like if it was arroz con leche. Very disappointing.

    We did not like the loud live music group playing Sunday night. They were good but the music was so loud it was difficult to hear each other talk. Food and service was excellent but the music was so loud we could not have a conversation. We had to yell at each other.

    I was looking forward to having an excellent paella, since we were in a Spanish restaurant. However, I was VERY disappointed. The rice was bland and there was no Socarrat at all! It was as if the rice was cooked in a large pot and then transferred to the paella pan, then garnished with the seafood.

    Always a joy to eat there. We had a nice evening with great live music that wasn't so loud you couldn't talk. Food was hot and well presented. Service was excellent. We went to their speakeasy, Hidden (through the door marked Pantry), afterwards for a night cap and it was also really good.

    The food, drinks, and service were fantastic. We shared a bunch of tapas and definitely recommend the eggplant, veal meatballs, and octopus. There was fun, live music, and a dancer for entertainment. Our only dislike was that there was a person walking around offering to take your picture. We thought it first it was something they were doing for their social media or an advertisement, and we obliged. The photographer asks to take your picture and says they will be right back with your photos, making it seem like this was a complementary service. Turns out that this person is just trying to sell you outrageously priced pictures and frames. It takes away from the dining experience and interrupts the mood and conversation. It feels dated and corny, like something you’d see on a day cruise - it just doesn’t fit the overall ambience and environment. But other than that, I would completely recommend this restaurant and definitely check out the speakeasy next-door.

    This is not our first visit to Eatapas. We’ve been several times and each time they knock it out of the park. Santiago was our waiter and he was excellent. Two in our party shared a paella and loved it. The rest of us got several tapas to share. Everything was delicious. We popped into their speakeasy for an after dinner drink and that was also fun. They do a great job here.

    We have been to Eatapas many times over the years that they have existed. Always fabulous. This time, we felt like things have gone downhill. 2 women seated and waiting and waiting. Meanwhile, other tables with groups or couples were seated and greeted immediately by a server. A manager walked by and I stopped him and asked who our server was. He said he would send him right over and asked if he could get us anything in the meantime. We asked about half a carafe of red sangria and he said it only comes in the full size. When Adam came over, he did apologize for not knowing we were assigned to him. He started putting fruit in the pitcher and stopped when I asked what each jar was. We might not have wanted everything. We ordered the seafood paella without mussels and clams as neither of us eat those items. We asked if they could add more shrimp or scallops - No. More vegetables? Yes. The paella was tasteless and mostly rice. We had half a pitcher of sangria leftover as we each drank just one glass. I asked for a container to take it home - nope. I suggested to Adam that they add half a carafe to the options and he told us that we should have just ordered one glass each. The manager did not give us that option. He should have when we asked for just half. Overall, it was not as good as previous experiences there. I do hope they improve to where they were.

    Everything was great, the music, ambiance, service, however, me and my husband are now sick. We think it was from the food. We had shared with our waiter (table 42) that an item that did not contain any seafood had a fishy flavor; he mentioned it was only olive oil, garlic and tomato. There was definitely a distinct fish flavor in it but we thought maybe it was anchovies or they used oil from another dish by mistake. I think something was definitely wrong cause now I am super sick and my husband also doesnt feel great. Its a shame cause we really liked the place.

    Algunos platos mejores que otros (las albóndigas, los garbanzos con chistorra, las croquetas , los champiñones al ajillo y el pan amb tumaca fueron espectaculares y también hay que destacar el postre de queso con miel … wow! El sitio está bien pero si quieren conversar deben pedir una mesa alejada del tablado porque la música y el taconeo del baile hace imposible conversar entre personas en la mesa. Es cuestión de gustos! El speakeasy bar es una pasada (buen sitio para cocteles y charlas en parejas o grupos pequeños).

    Overall, our experience inside the restaurant was excellent (food service, ambience entertainment).  Let’s move on to their valet parking…which needs serious improvement. it was more of a video game to get our car when we were leaving. There were cars trying to get in and backed up into the road, as well as cars trying to leave needless to say, it was a mess!

    I can see how this place is attractive to locals, as the restaurant is beautifully decorated and there is live music (unique given there aren't many Spaniard places). However it was very disappointing as I traveled from Boca just to hear American tunes with a Spaniard flare on the guitar and the Flamenco dancer hardly danced. The food also was disappointing, no real flavor and very greasy. The parking lot is very small and so you are forced to valet which is not ideal when you are wanting to leave right away. The only positive is that I will say the red Sangria was very good and the server was very friendly.

    Our first impression was that parking would be a challenge, but it is not since they offer valet. The decor and ambiance is nice and elegant. Service is superb. Our waitress was very helpful in assisting us navigate our first experience. The food is very freshly and flavors are on point. It was a challenge to stop eating those patatas bravas and many of the other tapas we enjoyed. Also shared a paella, which was not only delicious, but it became another tapa as we shared it at the table. Definitely will return soon regardless of the fact that is 45-50 minute drive from home.

    So happy we chose to go here for dinner. It was a great choice! The restaurant itself is beautiful and huge! Our server, Monica (I think) was so personable and friendly- she made us feel very welcome. All of the staff was wonderful. We had the seafood paella. Awesome- delicious, the fish was cooked perfectly (not overdone and chewy like some places). Can't wait to come pack and try the tapas next time. Highly, highly HIGHLY recommend Eatapas! Excellent experience!

    We had a reservation. We arrived and walked in the door with another couple. The hostess asked if we had a reservation, I replied “yes”. The other couple did not have a reservation, then proceeded to seat the other couple in the main dining room. She said she then came back and said because you don’t have a reservation. All I have available is the bar. I explained that we did have a reservation, and she still sat at us in the bar area. It was obvious that the other couple took our table. As we were enjoying our food two employees, and wa patron well known to them where standing at the bar and visiting right next to us. They were standing in the middle of the hall so people had to go around them. The sangria cart actually hit my husband because she did not have room to move through. My husband then did say something to the employees and they did move to the opposite end of the bar. The food was great. Our server, Hugo, was very attentive and did a great job. Will we be back, probably not. There are just too many grayed out options in that area for us to choose from.
