The Watermelon Gazpacho is outstanding — so subtle but full of flavor! The Crab Croquettes are also good. We got the Paella Lobster, which is just ok. So I would recommend to go for the smaller plates and skip the paellas :)

I was looking forward to the experience based on an episode of Check Please Bay Area. The food was very mediocre. Wait staff tried hard and did their best.

The on-site staff went over and beyond and made it such a pleasant dining experience. We went from a 2-top to a 4-top and they were able to accommodate our party due to a last minute cancellation. Very impressed and will definitely be back and recommend to others. Top notch service. Congratulations.

Great atmosphere and excellent drinks! We tried a bunch of different dishes and loved a lot of them. A couple of the seafood appetizers weren’t great but most of the food was really good. We will definitely be back.

I made a reservation online and requested to be seated indoor, however, it wasn't indoor. We were seated in their patio and it was really hot. Tables were super close to each other and there was only one or two fans in the patio. We wish we could've enjoy our foods without being hot the entire time.

Overall - a wonderful experience. The ambience is contemporary industrial brightened up with blue and orange color scheme. Our server was very responsive to all the members of our party of 12. We brought a special cake and she offered to refrigerate it and then cut and served it. She customized a paella order for our very particular grandmother. She even replaced a salmon entree that was cleared by mistake. Really above and beyond the expected. For this restaurant, tapas are the way to go. The octopus was perfectly cooked and especially delicious. Empanadas on a skewer were tasty and fun presentation. Meatballs also very good. Ham croquettes got mixed reviews; the interior texture was a little slimy. Oysters on another table looked amazing. Barceloneta sangria, which is made with cava and fresh fruit, is a perfect summer drink. Paellas had good flavor and texture (and getting the rice right is an achievement), but for us it had too much oil. Also paellas are priced quite high relative to the amount of seafood in the dish. I would definitely dine here again.

A huge disappointment, particularly as it was my mother’s birthday dinner. 15 minutes for someone to arrive at our table. We put in our orde right away, including the paella, as the menu stated 25+ minutes.

Service picked up for a while; tapas came at a brisk pace, and a server promptly took away empty dishes. And then we waited. And waited. And waited. After 40 minutes, I asked about the main course. We ended up waiting another 15 minutes, for a total of 55 minutes between courses.

The paella was ok; not very flavorful and very little saffron. Everything seem to have Mayonnaise on it. The croquetas were awesome, though slightly cold in the middle.

Most surprising though was the 20% tip that was automatically added to the bill, on a tab for a party of four. ¡Ay caramba! I don’t think we’ll be dining here again; the quality has totally fallen in the past year.

Oh, and hardly any of the huge windows were open, and most of the diners didn’t seem to be concerned.

I have loved this restaurant since it first opened, and, surprisingly, it just gets better and better. My favorite thing to do is to bring newbies to it, especially out-of-towners, and watch their faces as they taste the tapas and paellas. BIG smiles all around! It is a gem in the heart of Walnut Creek.

One of my favorite places in the Bay Area, the best Spanish food I can find outside of Spain. It's always a treat to be able to dine at Teleferic. Visited this place four times and will be back for sure.

It was my husband’s birthday and we went for a family lunch. The service was great and presentation of the food and beverages was beautiful. The flavor was missing from every dish that we tried. We spent $280 for the worst meal we’ve had in years.

Being a local of Walnut Creek we enjoyed your restaurant before but unfortunately last night our main course of 2 orders of paella the presentation were horrible and not even same level of paella we used to order before, very salty and portion is way out of price. Crab paella cannot be recommended at all.

Many times a this restaurant, always disappointed by waitres poor & careless service. Music extremely loud, I was expecting Music from spain (since it's a restaurant from spain) but instead the have very loud reggaeton music.
Overall, gave many opportunities to this restaurant but no more, will only come back to take out the tomahawk steak but not dinning there anymore.

Always a good meal and experience, although a tad pricey. Friendly efficient staff without making you feel rushed. So many choices yet somehow we always seem to order many of the same yummy dishes as our last visit. Noted that a 20% tip is added to all tabs regardless of party size and there is a noted time limit for dining...not a problem, just an interesting feature that is new.
