Strange food pairings that were not good- the burrata was served with green olives, mandarin oranges and a sweet cracker- the garlic shrimp was so loaded with garlic it was inedible- I was informed as we were sitting down that an 18% charge would be added to the bill to “help pay for the front and the back of the house”- that on top of what would normally be a 20% gratuity. I like how they left that out until you’re seated- not disclosing that when I booked with them over two weeks ago. I would not return-

Compared to other tapas restaurants we've gone to, this wouldn't be one we recommend. Meat skewers were tough, way over cooked. Some of the dishes were very basic and could have made at home, nothing unique. We had the charcuterie board, burrata, garlic shrimp, Brussel sprouts, pork noodles. Brussel sprouts the best. Gin and tonic was good. Moscow Mule came in an old fashion glass so thumbs down there. Atmosphere fine and service was very good.

The food was very good and service was great! Our waitress asked us nicely if we could move to another table, as they needed it for other guests, while we finished our wine and they gave us a dessert on the house!

Dining at Movida was just incredible. They have taken every precaution you can imagine to keep staff and diners safe. Really impressed with the work they have put in post covid. Wow!
The food was great. Attention to detail. The quality was superb. I didn’t know what to expect and I was blown away by every detail...

We are putting this on our small plates rotation. Next time I will get the sangria flight. Everything was great. I’d skip the churro with chocolate only because it wasn’t special.

The tapas are universally exquisite. We tried every one of the tapas on the menu. They were flavorful, perfectly seasoned, and perfectly prepared. The flavor combinations blended well, and each course was as delicious as the last. An absolute bargain for the quality and tastiness of these dishes. Highly recommend!

Our experience was great! My girlfriends and I came out for drinks and dinner on Saturday. Everything was amazing. The sangria was great, and the personal paella is delicious and definitely worth the price. I could only eat half and saved the rest for lunch the next day! Staff were friendly and professional.

Delightful experience. Excellent jamon and manchego charcuterie. Superb bottle of Rioja tempanillio wine. My lady friend had the Brussels sprouts tapas and I had the garlic shrimp tapas. Both mouth watering. Our wait staff was personable and happy to answer several menu questions. Ambiance was very spanish. I will look forward to a return trip there
