Great first time experience... good music on sundays
We had reservations at a near by Greek restaurant but decided to come to Sayola and we were glad we did. The food was absolutely delicious and the servers too great care of us. We sat in the bar area at a high top. Wasn’t noisy at all and perfect for two. I can’t wait to go back.
Food was great. Service felt a bit slow at times but overall enjoyed our meal here at Sayola. All dishes were fresh.
The staff was very friendly and the restaurant is beautiful.
Service in this restaurant is always excellent. Food is always superb. Came here for valentines dinner, and with all the new protocols and distancing- we felt safe.
Great atmosphere and ambience. Good food and even better service.
The food was great and the staff was very attentive. Would def go back!
Excellent service, subpar food.
Beautiful restaurant & excellent food. The service was exceptional & Gustavo & Ramon were a pair of gems.
Very tasty food, magic atmosphere and great service!!!
Waited an hour and a half for entrees
Never brought my sons chicken fingers and fries asked for with the appetizers

We will be giving all the training in the best of our ability to our staff members , so it doesn’t happens again. Best regards!! Atte Management
The food and service was outstanding. The manager/bartender Gustavo couldn’t be more accommodating. It would be a shame if this restaurant goes out of business due to the pandemic. They take all the necessary Covid precautions and was as clean as any restaurant that I have ever been in. The Sangria was amazing
Thank you so much for you patronage and support to our restaurant Mr Louis , we will be honored to have you dinning with us again soon . Best Regards!! Atte Management
Perfect! Food was amazingly delicious! Our server/bartender was great! Definitely will come back!
The sangria was excellent
Great ambience, service was spot on but... the empanadas, octopus etc that we ordered were horrible !i really was hoping that this lace would be a go to restaurant for us. But we couldn’t even eat one of the appetizers!
I am not one to leave food on my plate but wow!
This is my 5th visit & it never disappoints. Good food, great service.
It was my first time to Sayola and the food was absolutely delicious . My husband and I loved our experience at Sayola and we highly recommend . We are planning to take my mom there for her birthday . If you are looking for delicious food and excellent service Sayola will not disappoint!!
very friendly atmosphere. owners & staff very attentive. will be back again with friends
Food was great, atmosphere was also great! However, sitting at the high tops by the bar earned us slow service considering the bartender was the waiter for the high tops and was behind the bar! Next time would just sit at a table.
Valentines dinner so they had a prefix menu. Food was great, and the service was fantastic. The atmosphere was very nice as well. I’ll definitely go back.
Wonderful shrimp & garlic and paella!
Food was delicious. Good sized portions. Waitress and staff were attentive and helpful. Very attractive restaurant. A bit noisy as it became more crowded. Will go back.
Went for a late lunch. Grilled octopus was excellent as was the red bean soup and paella. Waiters were very attentive and professional.
Dinner was amazing. We started with a pitcher of white Sangria and Aguacate Relleno con Mariscos which was incredibly tasty. We shared an order of Mariscada Salsa Verde which was more than enough for 2, special thanks to a recommendation from our server. Dessert was crepe brûlée. Everything was perfect.
Nice lunch special. Very good pea soup and ham croquettes.
Had a delicious dinner with friends. Service was excellent. Our waiter recommended an excellent Spanish wine that was reasonably priced. All the food was perfectly prepared. We had tapas..lamp chops, stuffed clams and even the jamon with cheese was excellent. They even filleted the branzino for me at the table.
We enjoyed a very nice evening. Friendly services and nice ambiance. Will give it another try.
A very nice place, and I recommend her delicious dishes, I went to celebrate my birthday with my husband and I loved it!
Amazing Paella!!! Great place for a date or family dining.
WAS A GREAT PLACE TO EAT. FOOD WAS OUTSTANDING,SERVICE WAS GREAT. WOULD DEFINITLY RETURN . WOULD LOVE TO TRY THE TAPAS.
Had a great time here. Friday night at 6:30 and wasn’t too crowded of loud.
We did a tapas dinner and everything was great. Waiter was attentive without making me feel like he was mothering me.
Only gripe was about parking - a nice, normal parking lot would have been better than the valet or parking on the street options. But a small issue for such a great experience.
I would recommend to my friends but I will say that my fiancee and I had to overcome a pretty big hurdle right from the start. We had reservations for Saturday at 7:30pm. We arrived on time and our table wasn't ready yet so we sat at the bar. That was fine and we had Martini's which were amazing. The problem came when were seated. It took about 20 MINS for our table to be ready and then it took another 30 MINS before our waiter greeted us. We weren't even offered water during that time. And different wait staff passed us frequently. The whole time, the female manager stood watching all of this happen and did NOTHING. Finally a bus boy came by and asked if we had been helped and then he turned out to be our server for the evening. He was great! From then on we enjoyed ourselves but the problem with management here is that they handle the big tables and their regulars better than other tables. It wasn't until the manager saw that we ordered the most expensive dish on the menu that we got any attention at all. Food was great though but I wish the staff treated every table the same! You never know who you're serving!
Sayola has become our go to restaurants from business lunches, to dinners to celebrate big events, to casual family brunches. Why?
First and foremost the food is awesome. Ever meal that I have had at Sayola has been outstanding...not just good. The tapas selection covers all the bases and works to start off the meal or as the meal in it's entirety. The entrees are delicious, generous is size and have a home cooked quality to them.
The servers are attentive but don't hover over you. They strike a great balance and seem to enjoy their job.
I recommend Sayola to all my friends in the area because it is an exemplary restaurant.

First time at Sayola in Tenafly. We had been to Sayola in Montclair, this restaurant is better by far. Great food, exceptional sangria, amazing flan, great service, a warm and inviting vibe. We will be back!
My second visit to Sayola and I have to say how incredible the food is. I had the Tapas with grilled Octopus and Lamb ribs. It was so flavorful that I ordered seconds. The wait staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. I’m gonna make my third visit very soon!
