Had a great time at Tapas Valencia. Be mindful that the happy hour deals are only offered if you sit at the bar as my guest and I were not aware prior to making a table reservation. Aside from that minor snafu, the service was excellent (thanks, Blanca!). Took us no time to receive our food and drinks and I think they did a good job in timing each succeeding plate/order.

Food is excellent as always but service outside was a miss, we ask how long will take Paella to cook and said 30-45 minutes, then came before other tapas… I had to ask waiter for water as we were out and no-one was coming. Food is great but need to get better service in the patio.

Service was prompt and very helpful as half our table was not familiar with the tapas style. They do a great job of explaining the process, describing the dishes as they come, and answering any questions. All of the plates were delicious and I am looking forward to going back and trying more.

One of the weaker tapas restaurants I’ve been to in Chicago. Tried several recommended dishes and none were really stand out. Service was great though!

Ambiance and decor were also very dated.

Went with several friends and we each ordered at least one item. Love this way to try a lot of different dishes. Loved it all but the potato salad (forgot the menu name) is out of this world - order it every time I go.

Service was great! Food was meh. We ordered the Paella Valenciana, Patatas Bravas, Goat Cheese and the Croquetas. To be honest food was underwhelming and not very authentic, seasoning was not that good and the shellfish and shrimp in the paella were exceptionally chewy. Also, we arrived 15 minutes earlier than our reservation (last slot of the day apparently) and the kitchen was already about to close. Nothing on the food or service there, but on logistics.

Rude waiter! Disgusting attitude. Snatched my menu out of my hand! Complained about splitting the bill. Just a nasty individuals who Had no class at all. I called to complain. Nothing will be done about my complaints. Never going back there. I bet I would’ve have been treated like that if I was black.

Nice atmosphere, but the food was just OK. All of our tapas came out at once, so some dishes got cold before we were able to try them. Also, the sangria we had was lukewarm so it wasn't very refreshing.

The flight of Sangria was the most pleasant surprise of the day!!! A FLIGHT OF FREAKING SANGRIA!!!!! our server deserves an equal number of exclamation points for how outstanding she is. Great recommendations and phenomenal, attentive service. Every employee was great. If I had to choose one thing I wouldn’t re-order it was something with chicken and lemon and a cream sauce. It was good, but everything else was SO GOOD it didn’t quite compare. Thank you! I’ll be back when I’m back in Chicago. The easy parking was also so appreciated.
