First time dinning there and everything was delicious from appetizers to meals and also desserts! Paella was amazing and super authentic. Will definitely dine there again.
Love La Buena Vida, the food is consistently delicious and we enjoy going there. Sangria was well made and everyone at table enjoyed. Our server did a great job with my brother in laws dessert which was appreciated so much since we were celebrating his birthday 🎂
Food was pretty good and service was great. Would recommend for some good Spanish food
Lovely back deck overlooking the river. Delicious paella and mariscada with green sauce, classic Spanish dishes. Great recommendations from Jyllissa for appetizers when it turned out they were out of some. (It was a Sunday night after all.) Hoping to go back soon and bring friends.
Good authentic Spanish food. Wait staff very pleasant. Pretty place. Look forward to going back
Food was fresh and delicious! Outdoor seating is nice too! Would go back again for sure.
The food was excellent and the service was great. Everything was a-la-carte, resulting in a meal that was expensive.
A wonderful evening. Delicious food and our server Juilissa was awesome. A great sever on her game with wonderful hospitality skills.
We're becoming regulars. The food is consistently good, no matter what we try and the service is excellent too.
Good food, good drinks, good restaurant.
We've eaten at La Buena Vida several times now and it's always been a good meal. The portions are plentiful and the flavors are wonderful. The cuisine is Spanish, not Mexican, so you are like me and don't care for super spicy food packed with jalapenos, you'll really enjoy it. It's a very nice balance. Just about every time we've eaten there the chef has visited the table to ask if we enjoyed it. Once, he came out and saw that one of the steaks had be overcooked and took it away himself--we had the feeling whoever had cooked that steak got an earful. The staff is very friendly and we are so glad they seemed to have survived the pandemic.
Don’t let the dilapidated exterior fool you. Inside awaits a waterfront table, tapas, sangria, friendly waitstaff, and authentic Spanish cuisine. A real gem!
Excellent phenomenal food, fun atmosphere and friendly staff!
Very loud, couldn’t hear my wife across the table
I would definitely recommend...staff excellent; value and food excellent
Excellent food and white sangria. The service and staff was excellent!
We were a victim of a receipt machine breaking and being forgotten at the table. It happens. But I can't give a good review, it ruined our Cinco de mayo. Thank God for margaritas, they were great. Tacos were very good once ww got them an hour later. Everyone was nice.
Paella was delicious!! Red, white & Rose sangria's all fantastic!! Amazing server!!
The food was great as usual. We were starving and knew it was a fixed menu and they were very accommodating and let us order an apetizer off the regular menu and a dessert from menu.
I was so looking forward to dining here. My son and I went on Easter Sunday and the website did not state that it would be a only pre-fixed menu.. or I wouldn't have went. I asked for the regular menu but was told I no. Oddly, the tables next to us ordered items off the regular menu. My son, a teenager begged me not to say anything and so it being Easter I regretfully did not. We were given the "family style" appetizer platter which had 2 empanadas, 2 stuffed mushrooms , fried calmari, and 2 shrimp for the shrimp cocktail, yet the table next to us, which was a party of 4, had 4 shrimps .. paying the same prefixed menu prices? Again my son begged me not to say anything. My son's filet mignon was not very good.. dry and bland. My lamb chops were good. He is 17 and this prefixed menu was not enough food for him. $180 and I'll never go back. I was excited to order off the menu but this was not worth the pre-fix price at all. The dessert was good and our waitress was very nice. Overall I was disappointed and would have happily spent that or more from the regular menu. We were both disappointed and I felt that I spend a lot for not a great dining experience.
The food and service was great. Prices were good for the amount of food given. Everything we ordered was greater
Food and service excellent, John the Bartender is awesome 👍
