    Valet doesn’t speak English , don’t get “text “ and then they didn’t know which is my key for the car … then they said they I didn’t leave car there then car was stick with 4 cars blocking in valet. I didn’t even want to park valet , I didn’t realize restaurant hijacked all parking lot for themselves to use for valet . I no rant just park outside next door etc . But the boys would let me back up on us1 to leave . Anyway was awful to argue to look for my keys and my car . The portions got smaller for tapas . And more expensive. So , I guess only happy hour is good value . Music is great as always and I’ll be back for happy hour. The waiter was amazing , excellent hospitality.

    Truly enjoyed last night's dinner experience. Ambiance was great with the flamenco music , service was quick and organized, our server was frequently checking if we needed anything and we even were able to check out the new speakeasy! It's hidden and we loved that it wasn't crowded or loud . It was a nice subtle change after that delicious dinner. Thank you to Eatapas and we will be back!

    Overall, the food was amazing and our server was great. The only thing I would say was off was that I reserved a table for my mothers birthday and asked for a table close to the entertainment but when we arrived the host had an attitude and sat us in the back corner with absolutely no view at all & with little air ventilation. Other than that, our server provided us with a great experience, always made sure we were checked on and even introduced us to a new speakeasy. Will be returning.

    We are regulars @ EATAPAS and it never is disappointing! The small plates are sensational and while the larger main course fare is limited, they too are extraordinary. Drinks are well mixed and hefty. The Flamenco guitarist & dancer are exciting and very entertaining. If you have never been, make EATAPAS your next outing & reserve today. (ps: ask for a table facing the stage!).

    The restaurant has great ambiance, live music. We ordered croquetas de jamon as an appetizer and they were very good. We ordered the seafood paella, and it was decent, but very different from what I am accustomed to eating in the south of Spain. The rice was red instead of yellow and it did not have much flavor, but it was cooked well. The sangria was very good. We were not served any bread, which is strange, as in Spain we do not eat without bread. The service was very good even though it was very busy. Parking is a problem, unless you like valet parking. The pricing of the food is adequate, but they compensate by up pricing drinks and desserts. I will go there again to order only tapas and get a better sense of the overall quality of their food.

    Had to get a manager for someone to service our table. Had to ask multiple times for basic stuff like water, bread and utensils. I have eaten here before and unfortunately, the food was subpar last night. I eat out often and this place will definitely be removed from my go to list.

    Food was fantastic. The flamenco band (Tuesday night) was there but not overwhelming which made it enjoyable to experience while still being able to have a conversation. Ambiance enhancing for sure! Sandra our waitress was great. Attentive without being overbearing. Perfect service coordinated with the runners bringing the small plates. All the small plates were fantastic. Especially for a low-carb lifestyle. Seafood, pork and chicken dishes were all delightful (the muscles and the Jamon were amazing!) Nice Spanish wine by the glass selection to boot. Strong recommendation.

    First we were very disappointed that we had requested Monica as our server, and the hostess didn't really care that we had requested her, and just said "she has no available tables". Kind of rudely. Monica has been our server every time we have gone for the past two years. Our server was ok, but not great like Monica. Pistachio Martini's seemed weak, but the Barcelona Spritz was excellent. All the tapas were great, especially the anchovies. Dessert was amazing as always. The Flamenco part of the dinner did not have the same upbeat and enthusiasm as in the past. It seemed like they were on break more than they played.

    A fun place if you don't mind the high patron crowd noise. It is disconcerting and interferes with normal conversation. This is especially true as numbers of diners increases toward max capacity. Valet parking only. Don't drive up be cheap and ask to self part. Not allowed and as far as I know there's no nearby safe parking. The guitarist is incredible picking and strumming the steel guitar with typical Spanish flare. This is our third or so visit and we've seen a different flamenco dancer each time. We've been to Spain and visited Seville - the home of Flamenco. This dancing is very good with comparable Zapataedo footwork (a studied skill of the dancer) to Flamenco dancers we saw in Seville although comparably less of it interspersed with dance moves of the arms and hands. Continuous Zapataedo, a trait we witnessed in Seville, with less of it at Etapas, is physically demanding. Watching a pair (male and female) doing combined Flamenco is a real treat ... in Spain but not at Etapas. Still, fun to watch single female dancer. These female Flamenco dancers are quite accomplished. Cocktails and wine are in the $12-15 range, entrées $17 and up, tapas $7-15 each plate/wide selection. The portion sizes are generous. We had one entre' and 4 tapas along with a cocktail and a glass of wine each. $176! A $30 tip pushed the cost of the meal over $200. This is an expensive restaurant if you are not conservative with ordering tapas - the plates were, however, generous and very tasty. Especially the seafood (Salcipcon de Marisco). The mussels were disappointingly small with a liquid base too watery. Meatballs were great - 2 in a thick tasty gravy. Crispy potatoes to finish off the tapas and I could not eat it all and took it home. The chicken and mashed potato entry was tasty. 1/2 of that dish went home with us. Service was excellent - the restaurant has a well organized system of runners and cleaners. Diners tend to stay a while which is surprising due to the high noise levels

    After trying this restaurant in the past, we came back again. Our 2nd time around was not so good. The food was mediocre, the waitress even though she tried really hard couldn’t recommend any dishes but just offered the most expensive in the menu. One guitar and semi-dancer were on but didn’t look like they were having a good time. I am guessing we will not be back again. Maybe weekends are more fun.

Great "vibe" and great way to sample lots of dishes. A little dark and very noisy, but we're going back, taking party of 8 to celebrate birthdays later this week. Fun place!

    Undoubtedly, the heart and soul of Spanish cuisine lies in its tapas culture. These small, flavorful plates are perfect for sharing and sampling the country's culinary delights. From succulent Jamón Ibérico and spicy Patatas Bravas to tantalizing Gambas al Ajillo. Everything perfect.

    If you enjoy the cuisine of Spain, this is an excellent choice in the South Florida area. The atmosphere is friendly, from the other diners and attentive from the serving staff. We sampled several menu items and all were excellent in portion and taste. The pricing is also customer friendly.

    Came here with my boyfriend, mom and his parents. This was my first time to make a reservation with his parents after years…. Finally, I was able to leave an impression on them (they come from the wonderful Italian culinary world- homemade from scratch style dishes). We loved the tapas (salpicón de marisco, chorizo & chickpeas, oxtail to name a few), red sangria & seafood paella. Would love to take them back to enjoy the live entertainment, service and menu. A wonderful experience.
