    This is my third time dining at Tapas Valencia. Everytime I’ve dined here I have thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and ambiance. The hostesses are friendly and welcoming, and the servers are fantastic. I have tried several of the cold tapas, hot tapas and entrees and loved each one. My favorites tapas so far have been the stuffed mushrooms, lamb chops, tiger shrimp and the avocado stuffed with ceviche. I absolutely love the Paella Mariscos and the branzino. My favorite dessert so far is the Almond Pound cake with pears. I can’t wait to go back and try other things on the menu.

    This was our third time dining at Tapas Valencia and I must say, they never disappoint. Marcos, our server was very friendly and engaging. He let us know what the specials were and also gave us other suggestions. We tried the mushroom soup which was good, and the lamb chop appetizer with potatoes and asparagus and stuffed mushrooms were outstanding! We also had the Mariscos Paella which was to die for. We’ll definitely return soon to try more items on the menu.

    The food and the service were great. All dishes were outstanding, but we especially recommend all the lamb tapas. We had a few non-lamb lovers and they were at first hesitant to try them and ended having them all! the outstanding service including helping us retrieve a left behind hat! Note: the menu can be a little daunting , especially if you are not familiar with the Tapas (Spaniard's) concept, which is sharing a lot of small sampler plates , both hot and cold. For the non adventurosome, a good choice is the prix fixe menu, with two choices each of appetizer, entree and dessert (familiar foods). Then, since the portions are small, if hungry, you can order some Tapas before dessert! This is what we did. The cocktails were very good and the beer was cold!
