Loved it.

Most people in Dallas have no idea how lucky they are that the restaurant decided to open their first USA location in Dallas. So good.

The food was great! We were seated in the bar area and our waitress was terrible. We received our drink orders 30 minutes after our appetizers. She asked for our drink orders after already having taken them. I never received one entre and by the time she came to check on us it was so late I just cancelled it. The second entre arrived one hour into our dinner. She never checked to see if our food arrived and we had to flag her down and make sure she did not forget about it. She then made a huge deal, as if doing us a favor, about taking the cancelled dish off our bill. Two hours later we get the bill and she charged us for the fish that never arrived. Then we spent another 20 minutes waiting for her to fix it. Love the food but hate the service. Now worth the expensive meal with the terrible service. They probably need a verter system of keeping track of orders as it is tapas style!

The food is great! It reminded me of my time in Spain. They know what they are doing and they do it well. We enjoyed the Jamón croquettes, patatas bravas, “the Jamón Experience” and the Iberian Cheese Platter. I will be coming here again! It’s a great place to have some wine and good food with friends.

I really enjoyed it and look forward to coming back and trying everything on the menu. Service was slower than average for Dallas but probably faster than average compared to Madrid. Prices were reasonable and the Croquetas de Jamon were are good as any I ever had in Spain!

The location can be tricky to get to and leave, however there is valet parking which there is no fee...tip only. We sat upstairs where there was a DJ and it wasn't necessarily overbearing, but was rather loud. The wait staff were attentive and knew the menu rather well. Unfortunately, due to the supply chain issues, certain menu items were unavailable. The food that we did order met and exceeded our expectations in most cases. The value was ideal. The check was not outrageous and quite frankly, we would go again. Cheers!

Has potential, but the service has a lot to improve on. Showed up on time for a reservation and we waited 30 minutes at the bar for the table. No apology.

Waiter wasn’t much better, and seemed disorganized through the night.

This place does have potential, but man does the service need to improve.

I often ate at Enrique Tomas' special restaurants in Madrid. This is the only one of his chain in the US...and its just as great as those in Spain.

Jose Luis and his team are very attentive and knowledgeable. If you haven't tasted the world's best jamons you are in for a treat. The warm manchego dip with crusty bread and the incredible papas bravas are worth the trip by themselves.

Sitting outside with tapas and rioja is a great way to spend an afternoon!

My new fave in Dallas!

Contrary to some of the other reviews, I would say that the service was prompt and perhaps they’ve worked out the kinks of opening a new restaurant.

The food was excellent. We had the jamon experience and the cheese platter to start. It was well worth it. For the main course we had the octopus and the shrimp. Portions were a little small but it was very good.

We will certainly be heading back.

If you like Jamon iberico (spanish cured ham) this is the place for you. They portray themselves as a tapas restaurant but most of their tapas center on their specialty which is the spanish ham famous for coming from pigs which have been raised on acorns. Their portions are more generous than most tapas and the prices reflect that. The jamon platter with bread and tomatoes was excellent, as were the asparagus wrapped in ham and the Melted Manchego cheese dip (comes with lots of good bread). The Sangria does not come in a pitcher and by the glass is pricey (but very authentic and good- no soda water added!) The ham croquettes were a bit mushy for me but they were the favorite of one of my dinner companions so a matter of taste. Their version of Patatas braves comes with fried eqqs? we had them hold the eggs and they were good but the sauce was a spicy mayo based sauce vs what i typically think of. And the potatoes were wedges that could have been more crisp. Gazpacho was excellent and relatively affordable. Did not try the garlic shrimp ($19 for 5 shrimp) or the Seafood Paella ($19 but you have to order for a minimum of two so you have to really commit to an entree of Paella - vs a tapa tasting). Hope they change that policy. A single serving is a nice way to introduce paella to those unfamiliar with the dish. Their tortilla was really the only disappointment of the night. two inch high slab with mushy potato/egg mixture that didn't have much taste. I would pass on this one. The main dining room is downstairs with a bar upstairs that apparently has a dj starting around 8 and they stay open til 2:00. Overall a nice restaurant with great food IF you like "jamon" but be prepared to spend some money.

We had a group of 6 for a late dinner. Fantastic food and service. Really enjoyed the Spanish wine selection. The seafood dishes were great in addition to the jamon. Get the grilled octopus! Looking forward to our next visit!

They are still brand new. The service need training. They don’t know their food, their wine, anything. Some do, but not the waiter we had. They need more time

Great location and the restaurant looks fantastic. Very cool to see the meats being cut. Food was good. Service was slow. Incredibly slow. The restaurant was not busy, and it still took about 30mins for each course to come out. We were originally served warm water/no ice. We had to ask multiple serves for ice/cold water. Our dinner which was two appetizers took nearly two hours. We kept being told our food was on its way, but it clearly was not on its way. This is as a real bummer. We wanted this place to be good so bad as we live walking distance away. Unfortunately we will not be returning. Hopefully these issues will resolve with time.

Overall, it was good. Compared to its neighbor Barcelona, it was a lot more expensive a lot less shareable the wine was mediocre and expensive and our server was clearly overwhelmed. Dirty dishes stayed on our table for a long time, we had to ask for bread three separate times because he wouldn’t bring it, there was no recollection of the wine we had previously ordered. It just seems like we were bothered to be there. The ambience is loud for it not even being fall, they clearly did not put any sound barriers in the restaurant. We spent about $180 to have meat and cheese, some wine and no entrées. Just felt expensive for what it was, and not a stellar food service.

There are tables that are better comfort wise. Recommend to sit by the wall versus the windows. Battled the chain for the shades and had a person that kept bouncing behind me moving the seat back constantly.

Service was impeccable, definitely a team that has the customer at heart. Food was excellent. Presentation is not way up there but it didn’t matter when you tasted the deliciousness!

Wine selections were perfect for the menu. Will be back soon!

I was so excited to finally be able to try out Enrique Tomas. Boy did it disappoint! From the start, our table for two was not ready at the reservation time. As other couples were checking in with the host, they were offered complimentary champaign while they waited on their table, but we were ignored.

The infamous jamon Imberico was phenomenal. Everything else we had was boring and overpriced. We tried the manchego cheese bites, which came out as your standard cheddar cheese cubes. The burrata appetizer was sour and inedible. The sangria was so sweet that I got a headache after I finished the first glass. I tried to get a glass of wine but they were out of the selection, and the waiter got upset that I wouldn't order a different kind. Needless to say, I left Tomas hungry and sad. I hope Mr. Tomas visits and monitors his Dallas restaurant closely, or I fear it will close in 2 months time.

I tried hard to find something wrong with the food, but couldn't find any. The Chipirones we're well sourced and cooked properly. The jamon is the main act. You've gotta get it, and might as well shell out for the 36 month Pata Negra; It's superb.they do a really great job on the sourcing of their ingredients. This place is a definite do over for me.

Food was adequate...clearly, the jamon is the star of the show, but otherwise, I think there are better tapas options in town. Our food was rushed...the server informed us that “this is the way they do it in Spain” my dinner companion and I have been to Spain many times, and do not recall this tradition.
All in all, I might return, but would not recommend as a must try to others

We went the first weekend Enrique Tomas opened. We expected things to be a little crazy but we’re pleasantly surprised at how well service went. The food was excellent and the servers were warm, friendly and knowledgeable. We were really happy to have access to the beautiful jamon iberico and other dishes we had enjoyed while visiting Spain.
The lounge had not yet opened when we visited so we look forward to trying it when we return.
