Food was fine, just a little pricey for the quality. Sadly our server was a ghost most of the evening, but that could have been COVID related. We tried their other location Sabika in Naperville, which is a lot better

We ordered the bacon wrapped dates as the first dish which was unfortunately burnt. That was the beginning of the end with the food. However, the service was great!

We always have great service at Tapas Valencia! A couple of the dishes didn’t taste as good as the last time I was there; however, we are just so happy they were able to open again. We were treated well and hope to be back again soon!

Food was outstanding, the service was ok. We were sat outside, but they did not have a great system for keeping track of tables, so food kept getting delivered to the wrong table. Had to re-order a few dishes because we didn’t get them originally. Would love to visit again for a more “normal” experience because their food was delicious and a good value!

Had a fantastic dinner. We tried about 8 different tapas and the sangria flight. Every single dish was fantastic. Definitely will be back.

Felt very safe at their restaurant. Everyone wore masks, the tables were socially distant, and they take your temperature when you come in.

The food wasn't similar to Spanish food. I am from Spain and I went there thinking that it was going to be good but it was horrible. The clams were expired and the ham didn't even look like Spanish ham. The music was too loud and it wasn't cheap at all.

We are super picky about COVID precautions and felt that Valencia did a great job. I felt comfortable and would go back. Even though they enforced restrictions very well, we'd go early next time, as it got more crowded as the evening wore on.

We ate outside and two of my sons friends walked by and engaged us in an extended conversation our server held back our plates. That way we got to eat hot and fresh food when they left. I appreciate their concern about our experience but it wouldn’t have mattered if the food wasn’t good. From the black bean soup to the flan every course was tasty and interesting. I recommend the goat cheese in pecans and the roasted dates, an explosion of flavor. Go and try a variety of small plates you will not regret your meal.

Had an awesome dining experience at Tapas Valencia! It was not hard to find parking thanks to their $6 valet service. Bryan, our waiter, was so kind and made sure we had everything we needed. He even made a few recommendations on what to order as it was our first time there. The food was even better than the service! We dined outside and it was very nice, not too crowded or loud. We will definitely be coming back to try more of the menu!

This is one of my favorite tapas restaurants. The aesthetic are beautiful, large mosaics. The walls are pieces of art. I had the patas aioli and the salmon. Both were delicious. I also love the pomegranate sangria. The food is flavorful and lightly seasoned. I would definitely recommend trying this hidden jewel.
