I been coming to this restaurant for years, and the food stays consist. Food menu changes from time to time, and I have suggested to bring some dishes back on the menu; for example, I loved the pierna de pato con manzana. Nonetheless, the current menu is great. I would definitely say this tapas restaurant is better in regards to food quality compared to other restaurants that are no longer open-wonder why?

The food was outstanding! It was our anniversary so we were treated to a glass of champagne for each of us. The service was attentive and clean. There was no tapas we didn’t enjoy, all that we had ordered was excellent and VERY hard not to order more it tasted too good. Our desert was almond flan, perfect and they, again, went above and beyond and added more desert on the plate in the form of chocolate truffle like cake. Sangria, definitely recommend! This restaurant will not disappoint!!

A great Spanish Tapas restaurant to have a romantic dinner or host a large group. The food is one of the best Spanish Tapas I’ve had in the city. The shrimp and scallops were delicious! The sangria and margaritas are absolutely amazing! Jose, the owner made sure our table was taken care of and made us feel special. Max, our server is an absolute gem, who knows how to take care of his guest. Jose, thank you for everything! Cheers to you and your restaurant. Gracias! Isamar

Spent the afternoon at the Art Institute and wanted someplace close without being touristy. Having dined at Tapas Valencia pre-COVID, I was happy to see they were open and had indoor seating. We had a 4pm reservation, however arrived at 3pm hoping they would be able to accommodate us. And they did!
As usual, the service was wonderful and the food was as delicious as I remembered.
I will be including Tapas Valencia in my restaurant rotation when dining in the city.

I would have given "service" zero if that were an option. The service was horribly slow and inconsistent.

20 minutes just to get more water?

The tapas being brought to the table sometimes one at a time, sometimes a few at a time.

Bringing the coffee 15 minutes before the dessert?

etc

Horrible

We had the Restaurant Week Chicago 2021 menu and although it was "small" bites we found ourselves totally stuffed with the wonderful offerings. The food was well prepared and tasty. The sea scallops were melt-in-your mouth perfect and the beef was just right for us.

Valencia Tapas is fantastic. We came in for Restaurant Week and decided to go for the suggested menu. So glad we did! It was so good, I would have ordered the entire meal to go, but I’m sure it would not be as good microwaved the next day. Drinks were also very good. Try the Espana... you will not be disappointed. We will definitely be returning.
