    Eatapas is among the best Tapas experiences you will ever have. A unique blend of taste, music and lively ambiance makes for great dining experience. Try the eggplant!

    Made reservations online for a first visit and to celebrate a special occasion. Clearly stated in the initial reservation. Seated in the back of the restaurant, couldn’t see or hear the music or dancers. Entertainment was focused on patrons seated directly in front of the stage area. Service was extremely slow. Forgot our drink order and did not execute the “table side” sangria experience. After reminded several times, we finally received the rushed drink order. Did not get what we paid for. As far as food, it was good, not great. Server again,failed to put in portions of our order. Extremely disappointed in as we were really looking forward to this visit. Money not well spent.

    Can't say enough good things about EATAPAS! Even though we had reservations, the establishment was jammed and we preferred seating at the bar with clear view of the Flamenco guitarist and dancer. Rene, the bartender & server was sensational from the get-go whipping up the best pitcher of Sangria we've had in South Florida to recommending excellent choices from the extensive menu. Thank You Rene and we hope to see you again very soon! My wife and I have dined at Eatapas a number of times and we have never been disappointed. The menu is chock full of small plates to please anyone's pallet. Aside from paella dishes, the main courses are limited but cooked to perfection. My wife and I shared 4 small plates (tapas) including the octopus ajillo. All we amazing! We then shared the Baby Lamb Chops that were cooked to perfection and a delight. On previous visits we've had the Sea Bass and the Seafood Paella. All were excellent and we highly recommend. Go to EATAPAS for a really fun night filled with music, dancing, & wonderful culinary delights!!!

    I made a reservation and when I arrived I ask gently to the host if she can please seat me in a corner instead to not be on the middle she offer me a seat next to the ham in a hallway or in exclude place where waits where seated talking I ask her to seat me in a place where I can see the show there was empty table in fact the place where not full at all and she did not want it. She gave me a ridiculously explanation. I was a recurring client this was like the 6 time I visit the place but this unprofessional hostess ruined my time in fact my date and my all nigh I ended leaving without eat.

    This was our first time dining here. We were in the main dining room on a Friday night. The noise level is very high & not conducive to talking. It actually got better when the music started plus the music was outstanding. We really enjoyed our various small plates and the paella (which we ordered right away as it takes 20 minutes) was also good. The problem came when we ordered the sea bass main entrees and they didn’t come & they didn’t come & still they didn’t come, even though our waitress kept assuring us it would be any minute. When they finally came, one order was fine and one was very dry & overdone. I felt the waitress should have pre-warned us (as she did with the paella), if the wait was going to be that excessively long. If nothing else, there should have been an apology from the manager. We might go back, but we probably wouldn’t hurry back.

    We went in and was seated. It was moderately full when we got there but it was 10 minutes before anyone came to us. The waiter was nice enough. He took our order and gave us information about the menu. Our tapas came out in reasonable time as we waited the required 30 minutes for the paella. The live music was good. We received the paella and it was not to our liking. The meat paella we got made me thin the meat in it was pre cooked and possibly frozen. Fresh cooked chicken isn’t hard as it was, it reminded me of frozen meal meat. The flavors were ok. The tapas were a lot better than the main meal. Get tapas as the paella was a mandatory 2 people T 30$ a plate and you have the get the same paella. The ambiance was nice but the main meal was lacking in flavor and freshness. We will go back but only for the tapas.

    We were there to celebrate a big birthday. Asked that the small plates be brought close to the paella. Were told it would be fine but the small plates came out WAY before the paella. Too many tables and people crammed in there, everyone including servers were all over guests because there is simply not enough room. Very LOUD in there even without the performers/musicians. The paella came out and it sat there for 5-10 minutes. We had to ask another server to serve it to us (set up is that the servers have to mix it in front of you and plate it accordingly at the table). Asked for dessert with a candle for my mothers bday. They brought the dessert, no candle, and didn’t sing happy bday. Server eventually showed up with the candle and we quickly sang happy bday. I told the manager, he apologized and said he would see what he could do. That meant he brought us each a shot. Ridiculous. We returned from Spain last month, this food lacked flavor, all of it (paella, potatoes, meatballs, sausage, even shrimp.)

    If you enjoy a quiet dinner this is not the place for you! I knew what to expect, but my husband who usually doesn’t complain about loud noises thought it was extremely loud. With that being said, it’s a a fun and lively place. The food was good, but not enough for a return visit on our part. We ordered a cheese board which we had hoped to enjoy with our wine, but our second appetizer of grilled octopus was served at the same time which was disappointing. We shared a seafood paella which was quite good and had enough to take home. FYI they have valet parking but on the Saturday night that we were there it was a nightmare.

    This place was amazing. From the food to the servers. Treatment. Decor. Ambiance. Perfect place with good prices. Will definitely repeat. Try the chorizos tapas and pair it with a good red wine like a Tempranillo. Live music stars at 6:30 pm. I wish they had more flamenco music and that the singer’s voice was a bit louder. Parking can be hectic but the valet is complimentary. Great place!

    The waiter service was terrible! Ordered a bottle of sparkling water and, even after reminding him twice, we only got it after at least 30 min. Also forgot to bring one of the tapas (shrimp). Once I complained for the second time he finally said they made a mistake and sent it to another table Service has been getting worse every time I go there except if I seat in the bar. Will give it another try in a couple of weeks and if it does not improve I will just give up

    Great concept, great atmosphere, cool menu, BUT the worst service imaginable. My wife and I were seated on a not-so-busy Thursday night. We just sat there at a drinkless table waiting forever to be greeted by someone. Anyone. We lost our patience before we even got acknowledged that we were there. Then once my wife's sangria came, I waited for another eternity to get a simple bottle of beer that never came. If there's surveillance of our experience then it would prove my claim. Ridiculous. Oh, and then I walked over to the bar to ask for the 25min beer and the other server told me to relax, it's coming. What a joke. Don't go here, you'll lose your mind.
