The food is delicious and the restaurant itself is very nice. However, I’ve been to Enrique Tomas three times now and each time, I’ve received poor service. The staff is rude for no apparent reason. I won’t be going back.

Great service and good food. Like other reviews, the paella was over-cooked and the seafood was chewy. But the Spanish omelette was wonderful, as was the tomato bread and manchego bites. My husband loved the jamon experience. We’ll go back; we just won’t order the paella.

Cool place but most food was disappointing. Paella was seriously overcooked so good seafood was rubbery. Jamon was excellent. Live music was great but so loud it was hard to converse.

The food is unusual I have not found anywhere in Dallas But Enrique Tomas. He atmosphere and the service are terrific and a good match for the authentic flavors offered by their menu. I recommend this unconditionally.

This is the third time we have taken friends to Enrique and each time it gets better and better. Might be my favorite restaurant in Dallas right now. You have to try to strawberry cheesecake. I am not a cheesecake fan but this is like no other - delicious!!!!

Good experience with jamon serrano but not all dishes are worth to keep in the Menu, like the San Jacobs that is completely lack of flavor, harsh to chew and totally irrelevant. Paellas need a little bit of more work in the seasoning and zaffron use to give that Spanish taste (you have a competitor in Plano, Tx, Legacy West that easily beats you on this).
Service from all personnel is outstanding!

To start, we’re from Spain so we know good, real Spanish food! We tried about 18 different tapas and 3 or 4 entrees that our group of 7 all shared. Everything was very tasty except the Mediterranean Paella.. it truly had an awful taste, waiter removed it from our table and bill. Our favorites were the pulpo (octopus), patatas bravas, Spanish tortilla, mussels, the manchego cheese dip, and the Jamon Experience platter!
Host was extremely nice! Our waiter and the busser were both very nice and did their best.. it was lack of staff that was the issue. There was literally only 1 waiter for the entire restaurant, and all tables were full. He wasn’t 100% accurate or came around often, but he literally couldn’t and we understood. However, management really should not have only one waiter working so many tables at all!
Wine selection was very poor. We ordered about 4 different Spanish wines and none were available. A couple of food items were also unavailable. We skipped dessert but had espressos and cappuccinos which were excellent!
Overall, we would like to go back for sure because the food was tasty. The atmosphere and music was wonderful! I would just suggest having more servers working and a better selection of wine available, especially Spanish wines.

We went for an early dinner (eating with toddlers so don't like to disrupt other patrons) and the staff were very nice and accommodating and even my kids loved it. Food was beautifully plated and delicious. A great Spanish experience right here in Dallas.

I would recommend ordering the jamon and cheese - and the pickled anchovies - to go, but the dining experience isn't great. It may be that they are still struggling with service as we come out of Covid. Also, if you're going to require service staff to wear masks, they should actually wear masks fully and not around their chins.

Menu hard to read. Not many dishes described in English so we couldn’t figure out what we might like. We decided to go to dinner elsewhere after appetizer and drinks. Drinks were good but were $10 for happy hour. Calamari was rubbery. Service was good but we won’t be returning.

I’ve been to this place several times since they’ve opened, but absolutely the best experience last night. There were 4 of us, so we just let the waiter take us where he thought we should go for the best all around experience of the food. We started with “The Jamon Experience” which is a sampling of all their Spanish hams. Unbelievable. The iberico was stunning. Get the experience the first time, but I guarantee you will go straight for the Iberico after that. Just amazing. We had some olives, and the wonderful bread they serve with crushed tomatoes, garlic and olive oil on top. We had the octopus, the pasta and a pork dish that was grilled and served with a Spanish version of chimichurri. So good. The wine steward recommended 2 different Spanish wines to pair with the meal, and we got both. Our waiter was especially attentive and helpful. I would also highly recommend sitting at the bar to drink and eat. A great experience as well. 5 stars!

Enrique Tomas truly is Spain in Dallas. Their executive chef and maestro jamonero are both from Barcelona, Spain. Their food and jamón are out of this world. The octopus is the best in town, as well as their cheesecake (best I have ever had). Service was great and ambiance as well. Will be back many many times.

Enrique Tomas is Spain in Dallas.

This is a disservice to actual Spanish food...the only thing decent at this place is the jamón even though it is severely overpriced for what it is...

It was an ok experience, we when with some friends to try out the menu. Waiter wasn’t help at all in introducing us food. Keep saying “look over the menu we have a lot of different food” I kept asking what he
Recommended smh. Anyways we tried the sample platter of all the cuts of pork. Waiter just drop off the platter and didn’t even show us what’s + what. Until I flagged someone down to explain to us the selections. Anyways food was great, red Snapple cooked in a salt cocoon was awesome. Will I return probably not.

Best genuine jamón serrano I've tried in the US. Spend the money for the premium sampler of the sliced jamón serrano. The difference is worth the extra cost. Food was very authentic and tasty.
