The staff was amazing. Our waiter was very attentive. The food was also really good, especially the appetizers of baked clams and fried octopus. My husband really enjoyed his paella but I will say the kids menu could use some work and their French fries were not great. I will not judge harshly on that because it’s not a kids place. Overall nice spot and great atmosphere but a little on the pricey side. Then again we had seafood which is always going to cost more. I would recommend.

If you have never been to Sangria 71 go and enjoy. Have always gone to the East Williston location but ISLAND PARK is new favorite. With outdoor seating that is quite nice and very comfortable, it is perfect for this good weather.
The food was delicious and prepared fresh. Everything was very tasty.
Happy to have this in our neighborhood.
Lunch specials are very good value and you can add on sangria, soup or salad for a nominal fee. Iced tea is available instead of beer or wine, just remember there are no refills. You are charged for another drink!

Had date night here with the BF - been meaning to try this spot for a while. The highlights were the charcuterie, “fried” artichokes, pistachio cake and of course - the churros!! Our waitress was especially nice and asked the bartender to put on the basketball game for us which was much appreciated. We will be returning!!!

We had the seafood paella. The rice did not have that authentic Spanish seasoning and the shrimp was a bit overcooked. We ate outside and although the tent is in the parking lot, they did a good job making it nice.

Ordered a bunch of tapas and drinks with a friend. Everything we ate was delicious, but the fried Manchego is a must. The mango sangria was delicious, and our server was delightful. I will definitely be going back again soon.

We tried the traditional red sangria, which was made perfectly, not too sweet and not too much fruit. Being it was our first time, we decided on trying a bunch of appetizers so we could have a good sense of the cuisine and it was scrumptious. We had the shrimp in green sauce, scallops wrapped in bacon over pineapple, grilled octopus and the seafood stuffed mushrooms and they were all full of flavor and cooked to perfection. We look forward to our next trip.

The restaurant is lovely and the food spectacular. They have created a nice tented area in the parking lot which is very nice and you feel as if you are eating in a garden area, not a parking lot. the ten sides are up so the ventilation is good on a nice night. It might be hot in the direct sun or a humid night.

Our only complaint is that they do not read instructions and requests on the open table reservation. I prefer to reserve this way as it gives the staff written guidance of our needs. If they are too busy to take the time to read the comments, It is useless.
We asked for a table along the wall or in a corner, and while they did put us along the periphery, they wanted to seat us in the table that was whee the entrance to the tent was. We said we were no comfortable there as everyone would pass by and it would not be a comfortable location. there were 3 open other table that were better suited, ad we had to fight with the hostess to be seated at one of them. She was basically shouting that she could not make changes. Another hostess came over and said she should give us the next table in, which was much better. That location was lovely and very comfortable.

When desert was served, there was no candle for our friend’s 70th birthday which we were celebrating. The waiter was upset that he did not get that info, and brought a fun fireworks sparkler in a glass of ice which surprised our friend.

These are minor inconveniences, but if the restaurant does not want to read the instructions, then there should not be an option to leave them. Next time, I will call to re-affirm our requests and see the waiter privately during the meal to insure there are celebratory measures on special occasions. Adhering/to requests like these are what makes the difference between a 4 and 5 star review.

It’s a really nice place. The service was great but the food was a little bland to me. I would preferred more flavors. I felt like everything was a little too bland for my taste. Others may feel it’s just right. Maybe it was the specific meals I ordered. I don’t know. The service was amazing though. Great people, great ambiance.

Ricardo was our waiter and he was excellent. We made a special request for shrimp cocktail not realizing it was only for the lunch menu and he graciously accommodated us. The food was served hot and immediately when we were ready for it, the portions were just Enough so we didn’t feel too full afterwards. The entire staff was always ready to help and checked on us. The ambience was calm and beautiful very good for a date night, a party, or just a random night out. It was our first time going there and will absolutely be going again

Enjoyed a post Mothers Day dinner here. I wasn't a huge fan of every dish we tried flavor wise (just my personal taste) BUT even still everything was very fresh and well prepared. Drinks are phenomenal. Desert and cappuccino were great too. Our server was very kind and attentive. Everyone really enjoyed their dining experience and for 5 people the price was very reasonable.

We went for brunch, but as it turns out, there is NO brunch on Mother's Day! So we ate dinner at 11:45am. Food and service was excellent as usual, but thought they should have told us before hand that there was no brunch being served.

The service was terrible. Dirty dishes from other courses were left on the table and whatever should have been done but wasn’t you had to ask for.
However, the food was good and the portions were nice.

DISGUSTING. Not only did I show up ontime for my reservation, but I waited 15 minutes at my table to be acknowledged by a waitor/waitress. At this point, I was getting up to leave when finally someone came. Then, ordered my appetizers right then and there, and it came out in SECONDS (aka. reheated possibly, rubbery empanada)... but because there was a big peice of PLASTIC in my empanda. My husband and I immediately reported to our waitress that we were disgusted and leaving. Ew. Gross place. Will never ever ever ever go again. Horrible service to add.

The staff is incredibly friendly and attentive. The tables were spaced out appropriately for safety precautions. Freshest seafood I’ve had in 43 years of living in island park. I will surely be returning to this location.
