Exceptional, friendly, knowledgeable service. Thoughtful, authentic food. Unusual wines, smartly classified and easy to understand. We had a terrific meal from the moment we arrived until the moment we departed. Thank you!
great food, great service. Paola was amazing, I love Little Spain
Very inviting atmosphere. Prompt service (Food was served in under 5 minutes). Sangria was perfect and.
We ordered the squid & rice and the gazpacho. Both came out amazing and nice portions.
The best service that anyone can get, the food was delicious as usual and served fast, had a great time with family.
Will come back soon, strongly recommended
Everything was delicious! It’s a fun place with a hip vibe! Support Jose Andres who does so much for NYC and the world, Founder of World Central Kitchen. He literally feeds the world!
Delicious authentic Spanish food. Great atmosphere.
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.
Great service and yummy meal!
Cava and sunshine. It’s like dining on the coast of Spain.
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.
Good food and good location. Casual and fun ambiance
Lentil soup was delicious but chorizo was too chewy.
Loved the croquettes and patatas bravas.
it was fascinating. better than expected. more than just eating lunch. a treat.
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.
Disappointed experience, food was mediocre nothing to return for! Not expected to be so low quality.
I enjoyed the ambience and food here a lot! Truly feels like a "little spain". I will surely be back!
Great food and reasonable prices about 50 pp with drinks
Much changed from the pre-Covid times both as a food quality and overall service. Hopefully it will return to its original shape...
The service was outstanding - knowledgeable and friendly waitress. But other than the appetizers and sangria we did nit enjoy the food much. The flavors were a bit off. We ordered cod, chicken and beef and we were 4 people - and non liked the entrees.
Spotty service- food was good though
The restaurant was very loud. They only sold a few wines by the glass. No Paella on the menu. We got an appetizer with bread and tomatoes. Not at all like bruschetta. It was just ok. I got the cod dish, the size of the fish was a 2” square, on tomatoes. Surprisingly small amount of food. My friend got the chicken and rice dish under the comfort food section. She had two big pieces of chicken and rice. Nice sauce. No veggies. We got the cava sangria. Small glass, lots of ice for $10. Very underwhelming.
Great Spanish dishes- very authentic. Will definitely go again!
Such a delicious meal! Wonderful staff as well. Can't wait to come back!
There is a wide variety of choices and something to please everyone.
Have been before but this time wasn’t hugely impressed. They had the fans on full blast to the point that it was cold
Fantastic client lunch meeting.
Came here for our wedding anniversary. I highly recommend this for tapas, a date or just to pass the time.
Consistently good food and service and very pleasant environment.
The idea of the Spanish Diner is great but our last experience was not as expected. While the service was excellent and super friendly, the restaurant was not serviing a lot of what was offered in the menu. The flavors were a bit bland, and the food extremely heavy - more than normal in any Spanish kitchen. Might have overdone the garlic perhaps? Anyways, we were able to sit outside which was lovely and away from the inside noise.
Wonderful!! Great experience.
Fallaron en la bebida, tuvieron un problema y no servían la bebida que yo pedí.
El precio es excesivo.
This was lunch with a friend, both of us longtime High Line volunteers. So the location was a big factor and I suggested Little Spain because I've heard good things and wanted to try someplace new. We weren't disappointed! Thanks!
Our server couldn’t have been nicer, more helpful or dinner. She was great! Food was wonderful and what we ordered was perfect for sharing.
Went there for good food and they didn't have what I wanted. Items on menu not available.
Excellent service, the foods we ordered were tasty. The anchovies were too fishsy for me but my young adults kids like it. We were looking forward to order the Paella to share but it wasn't available that day (Friday).
Delicious Food!! and cool vibe! we enjoyed a lot!!
Wine is a bargain on Wednesday 1/2 price on all
