We had a marvelous time celebrating my masters graduation. Our server, Jose, stayed right on top of our orders and was easily one of the best servers I’ve ever had. Thank you for helping to make my day so special!

Service was great! Food was meh. We ordered the Paella Valenciana, Patatas Bravas, Goat Cheese and the Croquetas. To be honest food was underwhelming and not very authentic, seasoning was not that good and the shellfish and shrimp in the paella were exceptionally chewy. Also, we arrived 15 minutes earlier than our reservation (last slot of the day apparently) and the kitchen was already about to close. Nothing on the food or service there, but on logistics.

Rude waiter! Disgusting attitude. Snatched my menu out of my hand! Complained about splitting the bill. Just a nasty individuals who Had no class at all. I called to complain. Nothing will be done about my complaints. Never going back there. I bet I would’ve have been treated like that if I was black.

Nice atmosphere, but the food was just OK. All of our tapas came out at once, so some dishes got cold before we were able to try them. Also, the sangria we had was lukewarm so it wasn't very refreshing.

The flight of Sangria was the most pleasant surprise of the day!!! A FLIGHT OF FREAKING SANGRIA!!!!! our server deserves an equal number of exclamation points for how outstanding she is. Great recommendations and phenomenal, attentive service. Every employee was great. If I had to choose one thing I wouldn’t re-order it was something with chicken and lemon and a cream sauce. It was good, but everything else was SO GOOD it didn’t quite compare. Thank you! I’ll be back when I’m back in Chicago. The easy parking was also so appreciated.

The paella barely had any meat in it. The only seafood or meat in the paella was the couple of clams or shrimp on top of it. The service was pretty slow too. Overall mediocre restaurant.

My wife and I dine at this restaurant quite a bit so the bad service was a surprise as the service is usually very good. Some examples include waiting 10 minutes for wait staff to arrive to take order and waited 15 minutes for a pitcher of red sangria to arrive with two glasses. All of food arrived at the same time, just a minute or two the being served the sangria.

We visit Tapas Valencia when we are in the mood for tapas. This was with a guest from out of the country who never new what a tapas restaurant was. Needless to say, our guest lived the experience. We ordered many tapas, wine, beer and had a great time . Our guest wants to return before leaving home to taste the tapas we didn’t try.

I really enjoyed Tapas Valencia. I choose this restaurant because of their GF options as I have Celiac. The experience was made all the better because of the free complimentary valet parking. The server asked if I have any food allergies, for which I shared gluten free and to my surprise, the first time I’ve been asked in years, gluten free or celiac. Which was awesome. I ordered the dishes and enjoyed conversations. The only reason I have provided 4 stars was because on two different occasions, there were items on the plate that were not GF. They were minor components, but for a person with Celiac, important. The GF desserts were also delicious!I will definitely return as food was lovely.
