    Food was excellent as usual but lots of drama and confusion when we asked for separate checks Never an issue in the past but policy must have changed And we were not told until we got the check We prefer separate checks so drinkers can relax and order whatever they like Being told when we asked for them when we ordered would have saved time and hassle when trying to leave

    Our food (multiple tapas and one entree) was outstanding - bacon wrapped dates are "to die for". Once we got the attention of someone service was outstanding. Our reservation was for 5:30pm, but it wasn't until 5:50 that we actually got a service to give us the menu of wines by the glass and could order drinks. By then we already knew what tapas we wanted to order. The reason for the delay was that we arrived right at a shift change and that many after Bears game people had arrived without reservations.

    Sam our server was wonderful- helpful but not hovering. We had a full table of 8 and the restaurant was not crowded; nice atmosphere; casual and relaxed fun. The food was fantastic. Flavorful but not over the top on preparation; the chef is not trying to make a statement where it's not needed! it's tapas, people! Delicious, simple food! We were visiting from out of town but would make it a point to come again.

    It was mine and my sister‘s birthday, food was good atmosphere was great, sangria was very good. We were a little bit unhappy about receiving the house birthday dessert with no candles and no happy birthday sung from staff but it seemed everyone around us that was celebrating a birthday got the dessert with candles and the staff sung. 😕

    Such a cute restaurant in a quite block in south loop. Service was personable and helped us navigate the extensive tapas menu. The food was incredible, even the complimentary olives were delicious! And the dessert did not disappoint! Definitely my new go to for tapas in the city!

    We have been coming to Tapas Valencia off and on for years and have always enjoyed the small, tasty tapas dishes. Last night they were exceptionally good. There are always dishes on the menu for every taste and budget. A great neighborhood asset for a special occasion, regular dining, or just a drink and small tasty bite at the bar.

    It did not feel like Spanish food at all. Croquetas in tomato sauce? That’s a NO NO. Hardly any rice in the Paella, tried compensating it with excessive amount of scallops. Queso de Cabra submerged in tomato sauce again? A waste of Queso de Cabra.

    Although Tapas Valencia is one of our go to restaurants, this was a social occasion. The other 3 diners were enjoying their first meal at a restaurant in almost 3 years. Because of this restaurants cleaning protocols and other safety measures, they choose this to be their first dining experience !

    One of the hidden gems of the South Loop and downtown in general. Friendly and efficient service, which is hard to get these days. Delicious variety of small plates for sharing. This place would be jammed on the north side. Hot and cold tapas which include yummy sea food dishes. The crab with avocado on toast is amazing! One of our favorite places to visit with family and friends.

    We went here before a concert at soldier field. It was a great location as we had a comfortable 15-20 minutes walk from there. The food was excellent with a good selection of tapas and also some entree options. Our server was friendly and helpful, although he didn’t follow up with us much after we ordered. Other servers brought the food and extra water so we were still taken care of. Overall the experience was very good and I look forward to going back!

    Celebrated my birthday here, and everything was AMAZING! All of my friends were impressed by every tapa plate (they wanted to order 2 of each tapa). We ordered about 12 tapas and paella - everything was delicious. The red sangria was also wonderful. The waitress, Sheena was amazing and fun- she made the bday extra special!
