Excellent service. Excellent ambience in an outside setting. Good-value lunch with prix fixe or regular menu. La Camelia used to be my favorite tapas and dinner spot for years. Food is still good, but not superb as under previous management.

Service was horrible. We went for a nice birthday dinner for my wife. We had to wait over 2 hours for food which then came out prepared wrong 2 different times. My wife ended up not eating her dinner! This might have been a good restaurant in the past but they are now overwhelmed and need to rapidly hire more staff in the kitchen, bar, and servers. They added tables outside and don’t have parking or staff to handle the increased capacity. Our friends couldn’t even find a parking spot!

Prices were beyond expensive for the terrible service.

The manager was nice but should have taken drinks off the bill or something for the inconvenience. Instead she just asked us to try another time and said this was an off night.

We won’t be back.

Slow service. Food was not as hot as it could have been had it been served more quickly. The experience made the price seem a bit high. Probably merits another try, but it wasn't crowded, so service should have been better.

La Camelia was the first restaurant my husband & I choose for inside dining after 13 months self quarantining & it was a great choice. We arrived early & were given a choice of outside patio, fine dining or Tapas room, and seated immediately. The dining room is lovely: soft grey walls, massive wood trim and fireplace, with white covered tables socially distanced. The red sangria was festive with fresh fruit & enough alcohol to taste. The endive & poached pear salad was fresh, beautifully presented and well dressed. My steak was exactly as ordered and delicious. My husband's salad was also quite good, as was his salmon.

The food service was attentive but not intrusive; the space is comfortable and the food was thoughtfully prepared. By the time we left, the tapas room was becoming animated with the sound of happy people enjoying good food & drink. We'll happily return.

Safe and clean dining environment during this Covid period. Ordered lobster bisque as a starter. Nice and light unlike the typical New England chowder.
Both my wife and I ordered the roast duck as an entree, which was nice and crispy on the outside and tender inside. The service as usual was very attentive and efficient. Another wonderful dining experience.

We had a lovely meal last night. We ate in the outdoor patio which was well heated with their propane heaters. The food was great. I had the Valenciana paella which was very tasty with loads of seafood, chicken, and sausage. My wife had a beautiful endive salad and tapas which she said were wonderful. The service was great with a very attentive waitresses.

Exceptional service. Excellent food and an abundance of food choices including main entrees, and varied Tapas selection where one could not go wrong. Large selection of wines and cocktails as well. Will definitely return and look forward to in warmer weather where we can take advantage of patio seating, although patio is equipped with heaters and semi enclosed.

Dining here brings back fond memories of our Portugal / Spain trip a few years ago. The dishes at La Camelia are as good as those we had overseas.
On this Friday night during Lent, not wanting to break the traditional fast and to be honest, it really was not a sacrifice. My wife and I began our dinner with lobster bisque soup which is nothing like the heavy cream New England one and we shared a Cod fritter appetizer. For our entrees we had Scallops and Octopus. Both were tender, delicious and as usual the portions were very generous. We washed our meals down with their delicious homemade red Sangria and topped off our dinner with Pistachio Cake and hot Cappuccino. The service staff as usual, was courteous and efficient. A perfect relaxing night out
during this insane COVID-19 period. Thank you Serafina and Victor for providing a clean and safe environment!

Had a lovely time. We sat by the fireplace as I requested. Hana our waitress was cheerful, informative and very attentive. We enjoyed the excellent Valencia Paella along with several of the tapas. I loved the Lobster Bisque soup which was a very healthy portion and had crabmeat in it as well. I can't wait to go there again.

It was my wife’s birthday and a snowstorm was approaching that night but I was determined to take her out to our favorite Portuguese/Spanish restaurant. We decided to to make it a lunch. Everything was perfect as it always is for dinner! The starters of lobster bisque and tapas were perfect and our entree’s of beef short ribs were tender with the meat just falling off the bone. Our waitress was Hanna, sweet and very efficient! We will definitely add lunches to our usual dinner reservations.

From the food to the service, La Camelia was outstanding. We chose multiple dishes from the tapas menu with one being more delicious than the next. Each dish came out one by one. We were given time to enjoy each dish, digest a bit, and then the next would be served. Our server was excellent! She also couldn't have been nicer! We had a wonderful dining experience, will absolutely return, and highly recommend!!

Perfect lunch date
This restaurant is a gem in Mt Kisco. The seafood paella is of course number 1. It’s a pretty good serving for a lunch portion. My friends had the snapper and branzino which were cooked to perfection. Moist and tender and came with sauce on the side and vegetables. The desserts were heavenly, flan and apple tartin.
No wonder this restaurant is still in existence after 30+ years.
Of course we will not forget our server who was attentive and knowledgeable about the selection.
We will definitely come back.

I was really disappointed in this place. The reviews were so great that we decided to go and try it. Well. I think the chef needs a lesson in salting the food. We both had Paella and it was so so salty. Should of sent it back but we will not be back to this place ever. The shrimp were dried out, the chorizo had a funny taste, the clams were only ok, the meat was also dried out, but I do have to say the mussels were great. Four great muscles out of the whole dish is a disaster to me. There was certainly plenty of salty rice. The caesar salad was OK. The vodka on the rocks was very good and so was the coffee. $89.75 for a horrible lunch to me is a disaster. Good by LaCamelia I will not recommend your restaurant to anyone.
