The closest thing to a taste of Spain in Milwaukee! Delicious tapas and fun cocktails. Bonus for a great patio in the summer months!

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

Wonderful tapas. Fun ambience-we went during a Star Wars pop-up so if you are a fan, you will enjoy it. It seems one the ambience would be romantic on a normal day. Paella was good but not the best part of the meal. Enjoyed the sangria flight and thought the tapas were the stars of the meal. Wonderful service. Recommended for couples.

The newly renovated space was light and well spaced out. The service was very warm, welcoming, and helpful. The food was perfectly plated and flavors were amazing! Highly recommended Roasted Broccoli and the goat cheese empanadillas.

We required outdoor dining which is difficult on a cold, rainy night. The covered patio was very comfortable and we could remove our jackets. The tables were well spaced. Staff were great. The harissa chicken skewers were tasty, which was great for someone who doesn’t eat pork/shellfish. The garden paella was also flavorful. I wish that the extra COVID charge was 12% vs 18%, although the efforts the restaurant made to accommodate COVID restrictions were outstanding

The outdoor setting is wonderful. The food and service were also over the edge fantastic. My daughter can’t drink alcohol now and they made a delicious mocktail. I had the watermelon grapefruit sangria and loved it. We had the burr at a, the broccoli, the vegetarian paella, and the noodles. We finished we both desserts and everything was great.

Atmosphere was very nice and the patio was clean. Everyone was wearing masks and we felt very safe. Our waiter was terrific! We had 2 issues and he resolved them quickly. He was great.

The food on the other hand was mediocre. Seafood paella was very bland and had very few shrimp and the crab was canned flaked crab that they sprinkled on the top. Very disappointing. The tapas we ordered varied: several were very good but 4 of them were just okay. One was kind of bad. I wish the food had been better because the atmosphere and the service were so good.

The paella was very dry/overcooked. It was very disappointing. The olives, bread, and tapa we selected were pretty good.
