Everything about this restaurant is right. The ambiance and aesthetic are gorgeous. There is an abundance of outdoor seating. The food is authentic, elevated, and the flavor profiles are endorphin inspiring. This is certainly our new favorite go to in the area.

Absolutely amazed by the quality of the food and our server was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable with the food and drink suggestions. Don’t be fooled by the rather nondescript strip center location. This place is definitely worth a visit!

Our waiter James was outstanding and personable. The drinks are good. Tapas during happy hour are reasonably priced. Paellas are a bit pricey for the serving. Overall a great place!

If you have ever visited Spain and enjoyed their Tapas you must dine at Flores Tapas Bar! Food was amazing (you would think you were at a restaurant in Spain), service was extraordinary as well!

What a delightful surprise! Decided to go there last minute and I am so glad we did. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was very nice- with outside seating as an option, but they have a very pretty bar. However, it was the food that blew us away. There were four of us and we shared many small plates. In fact, the octopus was so fabulous I decided to have it as my main course! We were full, however, the churros for dessert looked tempting. All I can say is wow! Glad we indulged. This is an authentic tapa's restaurant hiding in a Wappingers Falls strip mall, but worth a try! Can't wait to go back.

We ate outside, on a perfectly lovely evening. The staff was attentive & our meal (we shared the Flores Experience) was delicious. The plates were perfectly timed to follow one another and everything was soooooo good. Can not wait to go back, with friends to eat & drink way too much!

Beautiful place but food was just alright. Nothing we had gave us the wow factor I was looking for in tapas. I have had tapas before, including Spain but these lack flavor. The staff was pleasant and accommodating even when we were given “warm milk” for a cappuccino?? Not sure what that was about.. anyway I don’t believe we will come back but everyone should try something at least once.

I really wanted to love this restaurant.... Finally a True Spanish tapas place.... However, the food was not like my family makes...
they offered a lot of my favorites but the food was lacking in flavor and not cooked properly...
brisket empanadas... Just brisket , no sauce or spices to elevate the flavor... shell had no taste.... I could go on...
Hopefully it will improve so I can actually bring my family there

Absolutely wonderful. Not going to lie, I had my doubts after seeing the location, but what a gem! Drinks are absolutely incredible. Spanish Rose, Purple Drank and the Rosé sangria are highly recommended. Food was awesome. Lots of vegetarian and vegan dishes. Service was amazing!

Went there for date night.. It was actually busy for a Tuesday. The place had a nice ambience to it, lighting was perfect and music was good. Service was great, James our server was very nice. Started the evening off with their white sangria which was ok, would had preferred more than just a slice of strawberry. Sangrias I have had before, usually have more fruit then that. My boyfriend had the Bullets and Bees which he said was refreshing with a kick. For tapas, we had the tostones and Jamon Serrano. New to me the Jamon but it was good. We also had the Brisket Empanadas, they were ok, I thought the meat would off been shredded but it was actually cubed, so you ended up with fatty parts in it, which I'm not a fan of it. Overall, it was good in flavor and very fresh. For our entrée, we shared a large chicken and chorizo paella which that was DELIOUS!! Perfect portion size. To top the night off, we ordered the churros with Nutella, WHAT??!!! You can tell the dough was freshly made and stuffed with just the right amount of Nutella! Definitely not your ordinary churro. Definitely will return and try other items.

Food was okay, not great. The shrimp and churros were really good but the rest was meh. Brisket empanada was greasy and a lot of fatty meat. The shishito peppers were bland. The worst part was that we made a reservation but when we arrived they said they were too busy and we could cram into the bar or eat outside in about 50 degrees if we wanted a table. We ate outside because we did not have a long time to wait (the reason we made a reservation in the first place) and the bar was packed with people on top of each other during COVID. We were pretty cold throughout the meal which made it less enjoyable. Overall, the service was decent.

If you allow reservations then you should ensure that you actually reserve a table for the reservation.

It’s relatively a small restaurant, but the food and service makes up for it. We had the pallea with chicken and chorizo for 2, and the flavors were amazing. The serving is enough for 2, but must get some Tapas to go with it. The white sangria is flavorful. A must visit for Tapa lovers

Had an amazing dinner here!
Small space but plenty of safety precautions with cleaning and plexiglass partitions between tables to not disturb the great ambiance.
The restaurant is gorgeous inside with incredible subway tiled bar as the centerpiece. We ate:
brisket empanadas
tostones
mussels & chorizo
meat & cheese platter
patatas bravas
churrasco con chimichurri
& Everything was delicious down to almost licking our plates lolol!
Quick and friendly service from the hostess, servers, to the entire waitstaff...everyone was friendly and kind!
Also recommend the house rosé sangria and their signature citrus cocktail called the “Drama Llama.”
Get here and enjoy soon!!!

Outstanding all around. Service, food, ambiance, energy all five star. We all loved our food selections - Chicken croquettes, empanadas , seafood paella and Hulu Hulu Chicken were delicious.

We ate at the bar and Dave mixed us some great drinks using local spirits from Hudson Valley Distillers.

Great night. Will definitely be back with more friends.

We really like the concept of tapas and a high end bar. It is only the first week. So there is time to work out the timing and kitchen challenges. Our chicken croquettes came out immediately. They were delicious and the highlight of our meal. The gambas al ajillo took and extraordinarily long time to arrive which was disappointing for tapas. They were missing the star ingredient, garlic. They were mostly tasteless. We shared a seafood paella. This was a bit too moist in my view for paella but still tasty. It could have had some more seafood as it was mostly rice. We each had a nice glass of rioja. This meal of two tapas and one shared paella was $100 before tip. I think that is pricey for what we received. The restaurant is clean with a great bar and a lovely ambiance. Our server Gabby was excellent, cheerful and knowledgeable. We will wait a few weeks and give it a second try.

Had a very enjoyable Birthday dinner for 5. It was opening night and considering the crowd, everything went well. The food was delicious, a little pricy but worth it. I enjoyed having something different than the usual fare in the area. Can't wait to go again!
