Great food. Great service. Great atmosphere. We love this place!!
I thought the food was pretty great. There was a nice variety of cold and hot tapas and the preparation and craftsmanship of them really made every dish truly great. I wish I could provide further positive feedback but I can't. Although our server seemed nice, her service was pretty slow, distant, uninterested, and highly absent. It took forever for us to get our drinks and we had to wait over 30 minutes to get 2 desserts. There were various times I had to flag down other servers and even the hostess to get things I we needed and to settle my bill. Also, I found it very odd and inconvenient that customers can't settle a bill with multiple forms of payment or get separate checks. And, it's even more ridiculous to be told that "we can't do that because our system does not allow it". I worked in this industry for over 10 years and know that, to split a check the only thing that needs to be done is to void the existing check, re-ring it as 2 separate ones, and tell the kitchen to not make it.
Over the course of my career, I have found that what makes customers come back is not only the food but they way they are made feel during their dining experience. Unfortunately, for us this is not a place we will be back or recommend to friends. We traveled 48 miles to try this out and were deeply disappointed. Luckily, Chicago has many more wonderful options available.
Bryan was our server and did a fantastic job! Great menu recommendations for us and handled the situation well when 6 more people arrived at the restaurant wanting to join our party of 3! Thanks also to the hostess for finding a larger table to accommodate all of us (9 people total) on short notice, on a busy Saturday night. The live music was great and the flamenco dancer was a fun addition to the band. Menu variety was great - many options. Tapas was tasty and cocktails were great. Watch out for the cava sangria pitchers - strong! It didn't take much to feel the effects. Desserts were yummy too. We had a great time! Highly recommend! We will definitely be back the next time we are in town!
Nice little neighborhood location in South Loop. Good food, great service.
Our group tried Tapas Valencia last year while in Chicago attending a business conference. We were so impressed that we returned this year. We went around the table, each ordering a dish for a "round" of fine dining. Add a pitcher of sangria and it made for a fun experience.
One of my favorite tapas places in the city, the service is beyond excellent!
Always have great seafood, drinks, and desserts!
Always a good experience. I need to make a mental note to make my reservations a bit later on Saturday night so I can enjoy more of the live music.
Although out paellas always come out much faster than the time indicated, it's a good idea to place your order ahead of time if you wanted to order one.
Our waitress was so awesome!
This used to be a favorite of ours, but we stopped going awhile ago when a change in chef made the dishes unreliable. What a wonderful surprise to return to an all-excellent meal. Each dish was one I'll order again--and the sooner, the better, though I also look forward to trying new ones. If I have to single out any, it would be the pulpo and solomillo. We won't go again without adding those to our meal. Mmmmmmm, good!
Made reservations for 7 for both my daughters birthday. The food came out at appropriate times, allowing us to pass, enjoy and converse. Our waitress was knowledgeable and fun! And at the end, she provided ice cream puffs for the birthday girls....which was certainly enough for all of us! The food still has me drooling!!
Always a great evening with excellent food and drink. Friends who had never been, were very impressed. You made new fans! We come often for the happy hour at the bar.
Great staff and Chris the manager was attentive!
Great Service and Terrific Tapas. We will definitely go back when we are in the South Loop. Already recommended this spot to friends and Family.
Our experience was outstanding from the food to the service. The menu was easy to navigate. The choices were plentiful. There were a variety of flavors and combinations. We tried 7 tapas and 3 desserts. We were extremely happy. Thank you for our visit.
I have been to Tapas Valencia many times. Never disappointed. This last visit, our server was Jose. He made the experience even more enjoyable.
Overall great experience! Would recommend to others.
Thank you Margarita and Jose for another wonderful evening at your restaurant. We love coming to Tapas for the excellent food and especially for the wonderful people who treat us like family every time we come.
I didn't really think about this too much because I was visiting with an old friend. However, we didn't' get water refills, only one time did they ask about drinks and it wasn't until the end of our dinner at that point water would have been nice but not another alchololic drink. Anyway, food was ok. Not specatcular. I probably wouldn't go hear again... maybe it's a nice place for a neighborhood restaurant but not for a night out. The waitress was really nice when she checked on us and it wasn't even crowded.
The food was excellent. We tried the Restaurant week menu. Great! Restaurant week is a great opportunity to try new places
A very vibrant menu
Plates were very well prepared
Unique spin to dishes that I like
First time at this restaurant. Food and service was great. Definitely a repeat.
Great for sharing and trying new things. Excellent dessert. $6 valet parking!
Great time. People were friendly from walking in the door to leaving. Definitely going back.
Always a go-to for special dining. Great service. Great ambience. Better food!
LOVED this place! The menu was extensive, the flavors amazing and staff so friendly. It was a happy, bright place. Will definitely be back!
Great food and service. Wonderful happy hour food specials.
Really enjoyed the food. My girlfriend is vegetarian and I noticed there were not a lot of options for her as there were for the rest of us. I will eat vegetarian with her most of the time but unable to do so here. We ended up ordering takeout when we got home. My family and I enjoyed everything else. Will likely come back as it is in close proximity to home. Lobster ravioli and lamb were very good. My mom took her leftover chicken home which means she really appreciated it.
We went there for my in-laws wedding anniversary. They loved the tapas, sangria and ambiance. We sat by the live Flamenco dancers which were terrific. The staff was very attentive and thanks to open table they knew it was their anniversary and brought my in-laws a delicious and very generous dessert.
This restaurant is a real gem. The food is outstanding and the chef came out personally to deliver our meals. We arrived during lunch and had wanted brunch food . The owner cheerfully accommodated our request for Spanish omelettes (which were delicious). Because the restaurant is open for dinner, it has a terrific wine list. The ambience is very light and happy. I highly recommend this venue for food, ambience and environment.
Always great service & delicious food. Best tapas in Chicago
Lupe the waitress was great! He was friendly and attaentive
Great New Year’s Eve spot. Entertainment was fun. Sangria was great as usual.
3rd time there and again it turned out to be great! Good value for the $ you spend. Food is good and variety is perfect.
Although I hadn't been to Tapas Valencia in a couple of years, it remains a good place to eat, to bring a date, and if you like live music, then you will enjoy it, as well.
Whether you like your tapas hot, or cold, you will definitely find flavorful options here.
Great dinner and very good service and food as usual
really enjoyed the selection options, atmosphere, etc
We went with a group of 7 and were able to have a conversation which is unusual these days. Food and service were great and wine delicious. Lovely decor and ambiance. Will go again soon!
As Always it was fantastic. Scallops and the steak entrees are my two personal favorites. We had churros for desert that was amazing.
Tapas Valencia was recommended by a friend. She always on point with restaurants. She did not fail again. Tapas Valencia was great, the food, drinks, and service. Chris was our server, he was Great. Everything he recommended was fabulous. We enjoyed the entire experience.
