We came for the wine and the Jamón. We kept it simple and ordered the cheese plate, the jamón experience for 2 and pan con tomate. A few glasses of rioja and some interesting conversation made for a great night. The pace of our visit was very Spanish too, no rush. We will definitely be back.

Waitress wasn’t exactly thrilled to be serving our party. She came by a few times very quickly as we first sat down and then it was hard to get her attention. Price was a little much for food we got and the drinks. Presentation of the surf and turf option was great but the taste was lacking.

We had a great dining experience but we were constantly told that “they didn’t have that tonight”. We were dining early on Saturday night so it wasn’t that they ran out of something - they just were no longer serving that item. Our server mentioned that they needed to update their menus.

Great good and cocktails. Only bad thing was a major wreck on 75. Tons of fire trucks and ambulances passing by made the patio a little loud at times.

Incredible food, great ambiance. Alfonso was a great waiter! Everything we had was excellent. I'd recommend the mushroom croquetas, the patatas bravas, and obviously the Jamon Iberico. Will definitely be coming back!

loved the Jamon -- nice to have the similar Galician experience... patatas bravas and 36 month iberico jamon were great highlights.

awesome large table in the back of the restaurant for a really good family lunch.

This was our first time to experience this restaurant. It is extraordinary, the service was incredible and the food extraordinary. You have to embrace it's authentic Spanish style and tapas style experience and at the end of the night you will instantly want to return.

I’ve travelled to Spain many times and hands down Enrique Tomas is about as authentic as you can get in the US. I highly recommended for those who want to try the Spanish cuisine for the first time and for those who know the Spanish dishes, have an open mind because with the right menus items, Enrique Tomas will satisfy your Spanish cravings.

We had a reservation booked and they seated us at the bar. They told us the kitchen closes within the next hour, it was 7pm, even though it typically closes at 10pm. This isn’t a tapas bar as the plates served were entree sized not small plates. The surf and turf came cold and tasted like it was frozen meat and shrimp. Quality of food was meh.

Food is okay, not bad but not exceptional. We went specially for the paella and we are certain it is not a fresh paella, meaning it’s not done at that moment you order it. If you know about paella’s this is how it’s done. It seams to be premade and set in the oven when ordered. Ours had missing seafood and when we ask we were just told sorry. Service is horrible! The worst!
Also the ambience/environment is a little off, seams to have a bar upstairs and music from restaurant and from bar upstairs compete with each other.
We will definitely try to give it another chance or maybe come back for some wine and tapas.

We focused on the restaurant week menu and were disappointed with the appetizers, the entrees, and the dessert. Had not been to the restaurant before. The service was great, but the food was mediocre, unseasoned, the flan was like pudding, and the appetizers had one sauce among the 4 we tried. And focused on potatoes. the pork was fatty, and the Snapper was boring and overcooked.

Did not enjoy this place at all. The service was completely scattered. Never brought the appetizer we ordered, the pasta we ordered was cold and we had to send it back. It took another 30 minutes to get the pasta, so the timing of the food was very off. The pasta was also quite bland - asked for crushed red pepper, they brought black pepper. Then my husband ordered a glass of wine, they told him they did not have that wine but could offer him another type. When he asked to see it on the menu to read about that wine, it was a $112 bottle and when the waiter saw that he said never mind he could not offer that glass. So my husband ordered another glass to which he was told they didn’t have that either. Overall it was a very unpleasant experience, service was deplorable, ambiance was blah.. the best part was the solo musician they had playing. Very expensive for this kind of service and bland food. I will not be back.

This was our first visit to this restaurant. The good was good; our friends who have eaten in Spain said the jambon
Was excellent.
I was disappointed that the most popular main dish and dessert were not available by approx 1945-2000.
This is restaurant week! Accurately anticipating quantities should be de rigueur.

Not worth the money. Food quality was not good. Ham croquetas fell apart as I picked them up. The only thing that was good was the jamón because they didn’t make it. I was so disappointed! I guess when it first opened it was good because the owner was around, but now the quality is gone.

We went to this restaurant on 8/20. While the food was amazing , my girlfriends and I couldn't help but be bothered by the wait staff. From the moment we sat down we felt that we were being rushed out. We sat at 5:30pm and came for happy hour - which should be expected with a happy hour menu as extensive as theirs. We ordered 6 appetizers and 6 drinks for the 3 of us. As soon as we would finish something the server was asking if we wanted anything else or if we wanted the check. By the time we finished eating he asked again about the check. My friend and I both had a glass of wine to finish so we weren't ready just yet. When he came back the next time I said we'd take the check because he obviously wanted us out. We paid it promptly and then a manager came over to check how our meal was. He was very kind and made small conversation saying there was no rush but to enjoy our night - mind you we hadn't said anything about being rushed. However, not even 2 minutes later he came over and asked us to leave in a few because they were booked. It was frustrating because they weren't apparent from the start. To put it in perspective we were only there for 1.5 hours for 3 people. There were empty tables and we were never notified of a time frame to follow.

We sat outside on the patio and enjoyed the Restaurant Week menu. Between the six of us we were able to try all the options. All the food was good, we especially liked the Secreto Iberico entree. On a recommendation we ordered the cheesecake as an extra dessert. It was very good, more "cheese" than "cake" and we all loved it.
The service was great.

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.
