We carry on the tradition of great food and service that was started at our original location, Mesón Sabika in Naperville.

We celebrated our 12 anniversary as a couple.
The waiter Antonio made the whole experience unforgettable. It was as if we were tourists in Spain.

If you are making a choice in tapas this is excellent, blows away Mercat. The food is good. The staff was kind. We will eat here again soon.

First time back since the pandemic. Food was even better than we remembered. Had a really fine meal. It wasn't inexpensive, but it was fine value for what we got. Service was friendly, but well short of polished. Recommend.

Overall, this was a nice restaurant with delicious Spanish cuisine. I went with my significant other and we ordered 5 tapas. It was plenty of food! They were honestly a little large for tapas- no complaints about that, but something to keep in mind when ordering. You'll get more food than you expect! My favorite tapa was the goat cheese- highly recommend!! For drinks, try the red sangria- it's not sweet (which I like in a sangria) and it was a great value. The service was great! The ambiance was nice - dimly lit and quiet flamenco music in the background. Overall, great experience for the price you pay. We will be back!

Service and food were fantastic. The choice in tapas was vast and all were great. The bacon wrapped figs and the warm goat cheese were personal favorites.

It got to be a little load later in the meal, but not so much as to disrupt the table conversation. Everyone was mindful and masks and safety so we felt very comfortable.

The tapas we had were absolutely incredible and I don’t know if I’ve ever had a more enthusiastic waiter in my life. We sat outside and the tables were right by the street, so that might not be for everyone but we enjoyed it. The inside had a very nice ambiance. Highly recommended.

The tapas and paella at Taps Valencia were very, very good. We were however, disappointed that we had asked if they had a patio or if their alfresco dining was on the street when making the reservation, we were told they had a patio. The photo on their website, showed tables with lovely flower boxes and greenery--this did not exist. Rather there were a few evergreens in pots. Our severer was very friendly and did his best, though he was managing multiple tables both indoors and outdoors. We had to ask for serving utensils and clean plates multiple times and our used plates, glasses; etc. were infrequently picked up. I realize most restaurants are struggling to amply staff, especially on a busy Saturday night. I recommend this restaurant for the food and the indoor ambiance.

The food was great. We ordered few appetizers and they were all delicious.
We only ordered two main courses which we also shared.
It was a bit noisy but we were still able to have a normal conversation.
We have a teenager and two young children and is always hard to find a place where we all enjoy the food and the atmosphere but here we are able to do it.

Excellent quality and presentation of the dished.. the salpicon, the goat's cheese in tomato broth, the cold tortillas and the stuffed peppers were all excellent. The Alaskan king crab's legs toast points definitely the star of our choices. The server picked a great wine for us and also a great dessert. The dishes are light with really well-balanced flavors. The decor is a little cold and industrial for my tastes, but the place was packed and even though noisy, we could still talk easily and hear each other. All the staff were friendly and attentive.

Have been here twice recently and really love the restaurant and the bar/cocktails! They have a great selection of both standard and interesting cocktails, as well as a wide array of mezcal and wine! As for the tapas, they are very authentic and amazing! I strongly recommend the crab, the patatas bravas, and the croquetas!! The ambiance is not the most romantic or unique, but definitely go for the drinks and the food!!! They also have free valet parking!!
