Located in Chicago’s South loop, we offer creative Spanish tapas, unique cocktails, and a lively atmosphere with walls adorned in multi-colored mosaic artwork reminiscent of the art of the great Spanish artists Joan Miro and Antoni Gaudí! Whether you’re dining with friends and family, exploring on a first date, or planning your next big event, Tapas Valencia is the perfect backdrop for any occasion. We carry on the tradition of great food and service that was started at our original location, Mesón Sabika in Naperville.

By far the best dining experience i have had in the last 5 years in Chicago-land! I had a request for a chilled bottle of champagne for my dinner. Jose sent me a text asking me for which type of champagne. I also asked to be placed in a secluded section of the restaurant for me and my date. Jose was very accommodating and bent over backwards. Needless to say the food was fabulous. We had difficulty getting out of seats we ate so much! Our server (Michelle?) was beyond awesome! She made a made us feel very comfortable and took really good care of us. This was a celebratory dinner that me and my girlfriend will remember for a long time!

THANKS TO ALL!!!!!!!!!

Some of the menu items are very expensive - the skirt steak especially. You get a sliver for $15 - the price for a full skirt stake dinner elsewhere. The food was good, but I have to admit, it's a bit pricey.

This a great place to go with a group. Everyone can find something they like on the menu. Sharing the tapas creates a feeling of being at a family gathering.

Nice pleasant live music and great ambience. Good for a Spanish “vamos de tapas” experience. Do expect smaller than traditional American cuisine restaurants and spending a little more, if desired to eat large meals.

We had a great dinner at Tapas Valencia on a recent visit to Chicago. The live music was fantastic and added to the nice atmosphere. The service was great and the food was great, too.

The food was outstanding. We ate everything we ordered. The cold seafood medley was amazing as was the goat cheese and pear plate. Great place for a girls night out or a family dinner or a date. Festive and warm environment.

Our favorite place in the south loop, before games, shows, etc. They never disappoint!
It is a real treat to be welcomed back by the manager every time we visit.

Charming ambiance and great food Very interesting menu. I was there on two consecutive nights entertaining colleagues who were attending a conference at McCormick place. Location is very convenient for McCormick visitors. Every dish was delicious. I especially recommend the calamari, the lamb chops, the olives, the cold salmon and the beef skewers but truly everything we ordered was superb including the diverse cocktails.

On our reservation I had indicated that we were celebrating an anniversary. The restaurant brought us Cava and fruit to celebrate in recognition. Our waitperson, Bryan, was on target with all of his recommendations and he took very good, attentive care of us. The salad, tapas selections and tasty dessert were all better than our interpretation of the printed menu descriptions. A fine meal with great value

The service was good- our waiter was attentive and the food came to the table in a timely fashion.
I enjoyed the decor and the location is easy to get to. Unfortunately we found the food to be average. Couldn't quit determine what the issues were- but for example the tortilla espanola was very bland- i have had much better versions at other Chicago restaurants (and in Spain).

We were greeted promptly and throughout the experience, were treated as very welcome guests. We tried seven different dishes and all were fantastic. My 16 year old daughter really enjoyed the Virgin Mojito!

Even though the restaurant was near empty, the food took so long. One of our guests never even received his entree and we got contradicting explanations all evening about where the entree was. Finally it was brought out to-go as we were leaning. It was a sad experience.

Lovely but service slowed down for a good 20 minutes- server just disappeared.
I think the ambience could be more interesting . Wall murals gorgeous, music was fantastic. Floors and tables/chairs very dull and bland

The wait staff at the restaurant was attentive and nice. But the food left something to be desired. It wasn’t bad (except the empanada we received which has raw dough inside) but it basically had the same level of flavor you’d expect from a suburban chain. Very bland.

We've brought guests here many times and love it for so many reasons; tops is drinks and food: each drink and dish is delicious; service is prompt and friendly; nothing is too pretentious, you can come casually dressed; the atmosphere and decor is fun and lively, especially when they have flamenco music and dancers; you can relax and eat at the bar or at high top tables, which are equally comfortable as the dining room; prices are very fair for the quality of food, and on top of all that you can usually find street parking, but the valet is very reasonably priced as well. Hits all our marks, that's why we've been back over and over!

Not nearly enough staff to accommodate the restaurant. Way too long in between seeing waiter. Food did not come out like it should at a tapas restaurant due to the lack of staff. The food and drinks are good.
