    What a pleasant surprise! We were walking around Bishop Arts and decided to have a late dinner. It was a little off the main path, but worth the short walk. A wonderful meal. Friendly staff. Great atmosphere. Highly recommend it.

    It felt like we were back in Spain. The food (tapas) and service were prompt and excellent. We were there early afternoon very relaxing and peaceful. We highly recommend and will be back often now we have discovered Sketches of Spain.

    The food was really good. It was a light crowd that day, and our waiter was very nice and helpful. A little pricey, but for the food not bad.

    Sketches of Spain is the most authentic tapas bar I have tried in Dallas. He buscado 7 años para encontrar algo que me acuerda de España. Los pinchos son iguales que las en las en Madrid. La tortilla casi igual de bueno que lo hace mi tía Lici. Y las albóndigas tienen salsa autenticó. I will be coming back!

    First time diners here, but definitely not the last time! Great tapas and paella, only complaint was they had no iced tea, and the table water did not have any ice, which would have been welcome as we were seated outside on a very warm early evening.

    I wanted to really like this place. The staff was wonderful, from the host to the chef! The food on the other hand is what ruined things. The food was extremely bland. The paella was not only bland, but completely burnt and stuck to the skillet.

    Best experience here. You won’t regret your time spent! And your tummy will thank you. Food was so delicious and flavorful. Service was excellent — all were attentive and kind while still allowing space to enjoy your evening. Also, you must try their sangria! 10/10 would recommend and can’t wait for my next visit!

    Enjoyed the cuttlefish paella with the garlic aioli. The Jamon platter was also good and so was the wine. The prices were high compared to other similar restaurants.

    This is a small menu with a very focused cuisine. I ordered a seafood paella expecting the typically saffron dish. I got a paella that was over cooked, dry, stuck to the pan and looked as if it was in tomato sauce, not saffron.

    We had a reservation at 8:15, got there a few minutes early. The host gave us a wait time of 5-7 minutes so we went to the bar. We order drinks and waited. And waited and waited. After about 15 min, we tried to flag someone down. Several people saw us but proceeded to ignore us. We went over to the original guy and he pretended to not see us. We finally got one of the bartenders to make eye contact. He said he would ask for us and never got back to us. We watched them seat two other parties and decided to leave. By this point it had been over an hour. As we were walking out, the first guy comes over to us to tell us it will be even longer. I told him we were leaving and did not appreciate being lied to and ignored. He had nothing to say. We will never go back there.
