Food is great as always!
Service forgets about you forever, don't come back and check periodically to your table, you have to wave for attention, no recommendations from server etc.

Great place to meet near Penn Station. Very socially-distanced. But few choices for those who don't eat pork or seafood; almost nothing for vegetarians, let alone vegans.

Great experience as always. Shared several starters: croquetas, empanadas, patatas bravas and we each had the gazpacho served in a glass. All excellent! For main the Bacalao in a stew of eggplant, peppers and zucchini. 1/2 priced bottles of wine. The noise level is very loud and at times unbearable. Friendly and efficient service delivery. Great space, love the openness of the dining room. Great option on the west side and Hudson Yards

We like coming to this place for the taste of Spain. It’s a good value for the price and also comparative to other places at Hudson Yards is more affordable for the everyday dinning. Service is not as attentive but ok.

The service is NON-EXISTENT unlike any place in NYC. The most Inefficient and unprofessional staff. Never ever go there for any occasion. This place will never survive in NY city except occasional tourists. Rude and unhelpful stuff - truly terrible.

The Spanish Diner was a nice place for our small team (9 persons) to gather for a late afternoon celebration. We had drinks and shared small plates - food was excellent, and the service also was very good. The flowers and plants were gorgeous, but a few times the lily scent was a little much, interfering with the taste of the food.

But overall very good.

Alan is a great server! we started with 2 Waso de Gazpacho, Aceitunas Marinadas,Patatas Bracas, and Essaladilla Rusa. Entrees were Fricando Ternera, Macarrones con Chorizo. Everything was AMAZING. Some Tito's and Doble Mahou Cinco Estrellas made for a wonderful evening. We will be back. Thank You

Pros: The food here is amazing!! Everything we had was perfect. I lived in Spain for 3 years and this is some of the Tastiest Spanish food I’ve had. Periodt. Our server was attentive, very nice and helped advise us on how much to order w/o upwelling us. Two weeks later I’m still thinking about how tasty our meal was.

Cons: This place is loud!! Like, really loud. And they have When we were there they were showing a soccer on the tvs. I don’t love tvs at a restaurant— especially one at this price point. This place is also expensive. The food was amazing, so it doesn’t feel like a rip off, but when we saw the checkout still struck us as pricey!

We had a great early lunch here on a Sunday. The food was great- larger portions than I expected. I particularly liked the avocado salad. The cheese tart dessert was amazing! Great atmosphere, friendly servers, even though they seemed slightly under-staffed. Will definitely visit again.

First visit was like being back in Barcelona. We decided to sit at the bar snd made a great decision. Our bartender Bo Wayne was a treasure. Great knowledge and perfect selections for our meal.
Croquettes (chicken), anchovies. Olives and potato chip, tripe and awesome aged sliced ham.
Authentic and delicious.

The service was not ideal. Our server was not friendly and seemed annoyed with basic questions. Both of us made the mistake of ordering sandwiches which were not at a level one would expect at a nicer sit down restaurant especially at the prices being charged. Overall disappointing business meal that cost much more than the value received.

The portions were perfect! We ordered about three appetizers, two entrees, and still had room for dessert. The dining room itself was very spacious and not too loud even though it was pretty full when we arrived. The servers were amazing as we didn’t have to wait to long at any time through our meal to be serviced.

Good food but it is too noisy inside (many screens, loud music). The experience would have been better with less stimuli.
