                                                            Fantastic food and ambience, and the wine recommendation was spot on. But the service flow was a bit chaotic, wasn’t sure if we had a dedicated server - but ended up needing to flag down servers other than the one who initially greeted us upon arriving at our table.

                                                            Used to like this place very much. Good food, organized staff and reasonable price. But disappointed this time with the service. Looks like they hired new staffs but without enough training. Wrong dishes came a couple of times and realized the dish I ordered did not even show up on the table after we left. It was a mess.

                                                            We had 8 of the appetizers. Had a non alcoholic mojito, Catalan Gin and tonic, and Teleferic Sangria. Croquetas were okay, the seafood items were excellent. This was our first time, next time will try the Paella. This restaurant is very high-energy and sometimes hard to hear. Overall a fun place to go to and has excellent food and services.

                                                            This is my 4th time here and had good experiences. But this time the quality of the food is not the same. Perhaps it is a different chef? Appetizer, Ham Croquetas is good and dipping sauce on the side side dish - Brussels Sprouts. this time was very salty and oily. Perhaps the chef made it too heavy and salty Main dish - Paella Mixta. Very heavy taste this time and added more much more meat. We end up only to eat 1/2 portion due to the heavy taste, salty and oily with way more pork belly and pork all inside the dish. Can hardly even get much of the rice at all!! Hopefully it is just the matter of the chef on duty and next time can be the same as my previous experiences. Waiting service was only 2 stars because I was dying for a refill of my water and no one waited and unable to wave down anyone. Then we ordered 2 cups of coffee with desserts, it took 30 minutes after we already finished the desserts. Waved down the waiter and the bus boy 2X and still nothing came. Disappointed.

The cauliflower was wonderful, the octopus was done perfectly ( although the sauce was not my favorite) and we loved the patatas. We felt like we were in Barcelona. We had the paella Mixta which was excellent! Next time we will order less food! We sat outside which was warm and lively.

                                                            I have been here a few times when I am in Palo Alto for work. It is a must-visit. The food is absolutely delicious. Nothing better, in my mind, that Tapas. You can try just about everything on the menu that strikes your fancy and thats pretty much what we did. We ate to our fill, had a nice bottle of wine, and dessert. The paella was our 'main' and was delicious.

                                                            The food was very good and an average price for Palo Alto. The wine list was excellent and they had many options by the glass from across Spain. However, the service was extremely rushed to the point where it was unpleasant. We made a reservation for 9pm only to find out that last call is at 9:15pm and the food service ended at 10pm. We were rushed out of our table numerous times by servers. I understand the restaurant is closing, I just wish they did not offer reservations so late if they will not even serve you 15 minutes after you arrive, because if we had known we would have gone elsewhere. A 20% gratuity is automatically included.

                                                            Good food, a bit pricey. The paella isn't like what you'd get in Valencia, but was decent. The tapas were better, including the tuna "taco" and the brussels. Wine and drinks were expensive, but maybe I'm remembering the $3/glass vino tinto in Catalan. Outdoor seating was convenient but not the best ambience. I'm still not preferring indoor seating but that looked relaxing. 20% automatic gratuity with expected tip on top is a bit much, but ... it's 2022, I guess.

                                                            We loved the tapas: empanadas, grilled octopus, crab and ham croquettes were delicious! The cheese plate was good. The paella dishes were not as good: our crab and squid ink paella were overcooked, the seafood was overcooked and the rice was spread out too thin. Salad was just okay. Drinks are great! Try their Basque Country wine Txakolina.
