Overall food was okay. The menu and flavor of food was okay but the the quality didn’t match the price commanded. The veggies and seafood were overcooked. The Mixta paella was not repaired the traditional way, with the seafood cooked with the paella but instead, added after so the flavor wasn’t quite as robust. Also, when ordering cocktails, ask for no ice because they use crushed ice and fill it to the rim so you don’t get much beverage. I would return but not on my top 10 list of restaurants in LV.

Our waiter, Anthony, was great! Very personable and kind. Food was under seasoned and needed salt. The croquettes were yummy tho!

Julian Serrano Tapas was an awesome evening. Attended for a business client dinner and from start to finish it was excellent. The waiter was very helpful in figuring out how many items to order. Food and service was outstanding. Would definitely go back.

The food was ok. It wasn’t spectacular compared to other tapas places at which we have eaten. I’ve seen a lot of the other reviews that reference the slow service - this was also our experience.

Great ambiance and decor. Service was spectacular and the food was even better. One small ding: for Tapas style the portion sizes were very very small. Other than that no complaints. Would recommend.

Our server was the main reason why our experience was less than expected. We have dined here every time we go to Vegas which is once or twice per year. Craig was very hurried and huffed and puffed during the dining experience. He often crossed our faces removing plates etc. instead of going around. At the end of our meal he presented the hand held CC machine and told us how to use it, even though we have used these in Europe many times, he made a point to show us where to put his tip and then stood behind my partner as he entered the amount. We are definitely going back but would ask for a different server.

Being vegan we know our options are limited but this place used to have some good ones. They changed items from.last time and they weren't vegan anymore. That was disappointing. The vegetable paella is always good but sooo overpriced. That's to be expected on the strip but it's not worth it. The service was pretty slow, too.

FIRST thing I told our server Romain was I wanted to have a couple of drinks before dinner and the LAST thing I wanted was to be served drinks with dinner. First drink, 10 minute wait.
That's right, you guessed it. 2nd drink, 15 minutes later and was served with my dinner. The place was 75% empty. Now the server is hovering over us like a drone waiting to clear the table and serve dessert. ABSOLUTELY the WORST server experience. We went to J. S. Tapas inspite of reading other reviews. ALL BAD REVIEWS ARE CORRECT. Sorry Romain.

Prices are equivalent to nice Las Vegas restaurants. Presentation is impeccable. They take tapas and deconstruct, maneuver and inject flavor.

Tapas were excellent. While each dish was highly priced compared to tapas restaurants in LA, the portions were generous. Our server advised on ordering two or three plates per person--but for two people, three plates were more than enough for dinner. We ordered the chicken skewer, which was huge, the Caesar salad, albondigas and the short rib. All were beautiful and tasty, although the short ribs were a bit rubbery (needed more braising to break down the connective tissues). Restaurant itself was beautifully decorated.

Everything was good. One thing was not done well was the rice "Socarrat" which is renowned in authentic Paella. It was just soft and mushy. They should inform the customers of this before ordering so the customer can request the rice is classically browned and caramelized on the bottom of the pan. Disappointing for such a featured dish. When we brought this up with the server they mention it adds time to the cook and a percentage of the customers would not like it this way. SOLUTION: mention this in the menu as an option.

The vibe this place gives was very modern and yet romantic food was great but the price was also very high. I just wanted some tapas and garlic fries. For special occasions I would recommend!

We have been going to Julian Serrano Tapas for a few years now and it seems to be getting better over time. The Tuna Cone and Garlic Shrimp were excellent and the Paella reliable as always. The Chicken Croquetas were a little cold and could have been served warmer right out of the frying pan.

Ambience is lively / enjoyable and service is always professional and consistent.

This time we also went to Julian Serrano’s Italian Tapas restaurante “Lago” at the Bellagio and that one was even better this time.
