We were celebrating both a birthday and an anniversary and our waiter went out of his way and brought us 2 separate desserts (churros and flan), one for each occasion which was very thoughtful... and delicious! This is our second time at SER and we are yet to have any of the tapas that we don't like. The croquetas, tortilla de patata, eggplant, roasted vegetables, gambas al ajillo, pan catalana were all outstanding. The entree (lamb for 2) was served with mashed potatoes and roasted peppers and the lamb was so tender it fell off the bone. It also came with a side of patatas bravas which was a nice addition. Strongly recommend the seafood paella as well and roasted brussel sprouts (smoky and caramelized). All in all, great value with a nice atmosphere, especially since you can reserve an outdoor table and they have a canopy in case it rains. And finally, don't forget the sangria!
The food was fantastic, some of the best Sangria in town.
I will definitely go back there and soon.
Michael was amazing - such a great evening, food and service!
A wonderful experience! The food, drinks and service were top notch. The restaurant has outdoor seating, but unfortunately it’s close to a busy thoroughfare. Other than that, I highly recommend SER.
Very tasty lunch, nice outdoor seating. Great option for both business and pleasure lunches.
Great food, great atmosphere, and very friendly staff
We had a fabulous evening at SER thanks to Luis and Sergio. The food was delicious and the wine selections even better. Best Spanish cuisine & wine selection in northern Virginia!
Excellent experience as usual!
Food had sand in it and the paella was burnt. I wasn’t impressed.
One of the best restaurants in Arlington, great for big groups and celebrations as well as intimate dinner. Last night we enjoyed the outdoor seating under the marquee.
Thank you for accommodating our large group! Patio was very comfortable. Great service for a special occasion. Delicious food and paella was worth the wait!! Thanks so much ~
My wife and I want for a date night. Casual vibrant atmosphere, with delicious dishes. I had the gazpacho (evening special), the Costillas Asada ( beef short ribs), and the Churros con Chocolate. My wife had the gambas (shrimp, from the tapas menu), the Magret de Pato (duck), and the Goxua (almond sponge cake with custard). Recommend on all. The waitstaff was attentive and helpful. They provided excellent Sherry recommendations. Prices were reasonable for the quality of the food provided. Portions were perfect--we left sated but not overly full. We will definitely go back.
The service was good and the food was mostly good but not great. I would go back to try some other dishes. The paella was very oily and not the way I grew up eating paella but that might not be all bad. Dessert was wonderful.
Fantastic first visit. Tasting menu and wine pairing was amazing. Can’t wait to go back and try more from the great menu of offerings.
The food was truly excellent, as were the drinks. We especially loved the sangria ice cubes filled with fruit. Very nice!
Food was average service below average. Not going to return
SER is consistently good. I live in Arlington and it is my favorite restaurant. The chocolate souffle was a bit weak (usually has molten center but not last night); everything else was fabulous.
We have visited SER on multiple occasions and consider this our favorite “go to” restaurant. While the food is always fantastic, it is the service that really takes this restaurant to the next level. Angel, our server is outstanding. He continually impresses us with his customer service engagement, attitude and pure desire to make our experience great. Thank you Angel, Dimytri and Javier for the continued excellence.
Excellent service, the lobster app was great, drinks were fantastic. Nothing negative to say about our experience. Would definitely recommend to others and will return when we are back in the area.
The gazpacho and especially the seafood paella was out of this world…so delicious. Our waiter was wonderful and we had a great time. Will definitely be returning soon.
The food was so good and our waiter was amazing. He made excellent recommendations for wine pairings with food.
SER is an absolute gem.
Brunch was fabulous. We shared a Seafood tower and other small plates. Mimosas were on special and it came with 3 different flavors.
Great vibe all around
We had to wait about 15 minutes for our reserved table as the place was packed. Service was attentive and the food tasty. After watching what other diners had ordered, I think we might order other items next time. Sangria great, paella very good, their Spanish tomato and garlic topped bread yummy and the lamb shank good. We ate outside and a larger group made it quite loud. When they left the noise level was greatly reduced.
Outstanding service, cocktails, wine, and food! A great place for a date or get together with friends for a special occasion.
Authentic and delectable tapas are plentiful at SER. The Pulpo a la gallega was spectacular and brought my husband and I back to great memories of eating pulpo in Galicia. I would recommend SER to anyone who loves Spanish cuisine.
We loved everything. Wines are fantastic and reasonably priced. Our server was polite, attentive and made the experience even more special by offering us the famous house-infused brandy at the end.
Will be back soon
The food was absolutely delicious! A bit too noisy /bad acustics under the tents. That lamb & flan combo were exquisite!
Excellent as usual!
The oysters were frozen or re-frozen after being fresh I’ve never had dry oysters ever, the shrimp was over cooked and paella was over cooked . Probably the worse Spanish tapas / paella place we’ve tried.
Excellent, fast service at lunchtime.when we told them we were in a hurry. Octopus (shrimp, mussels) cold tapas, bread & sangria excellent. Croquettes not so great. Spanish music added to lovely atmosphere.
Terrific service and wait staff, excellent food and beverages, great location and vibe.
Indoor dining was quite comfortable, as patrons were safely distanced from one another. Our group enjoyed the tuna crudo and grilled octopus (very tender), the seafood paella, the duck entree and the chocolate souffle. Save yourself a trip into D.C. and check out this Spanish restaurant in North Arlington.
We had a fabulous birthday dinner here. Definitely come back again.
We had an excellent meal at Ser! It was very reminiscent of the meals we had when traveling through Barcelona and Alicante in Spain. I actually thought the paella was better than the ones we had in Spain! Looking forward to our next trip back. Absolutely delicious.
Very nice outdoor seating, sangria came with fruit filled ice cubes which was different!
Lovely outdoor summer evening. Red wine sangria perfect for a summer eve.Shrimp in olive oil w/ garlic is a classic, and is just fantastic at SER. Best dipping olive oil is the oil with garlic and peppers from that dish.
I'm always looking for vegetables at a tapas restaurant, and SER has a great range. A special tomato/cucumber salad, the roasted vegetables with goat cheese, shishito peppers. Thank you!
The food was not as flavorful as had expected and as heard from recommenders. We ordered the croquetas and a few other dishes. In one of the croquetas there was a bone that I bit into. The gambas al ajillo was tasty especially dipping the bread into the oil.
We hadn't been to SER in quite some time. It was better than we remembered! Everything was great and the service was very attentive. It was nice to see a large crowd for dinner, too.
Food was plentiful and filling. Sangria (red) and the dessert was amazing.
Excellent food and wine, very good service. A little loud outside with Glebe Road traffic but still a very pleasant evening.
