    For a restaurant week, the menu for 2 barely has enough food for 2 people and you must choose the same items. The price of $42/person before tax is not justifiable for this experience. It should be the lunch menu instead of dinner, and the price should be $25/person range for it to be considered reasonably good. Otherwise the cook of beef short ribs is to the point, very tasty. However with this current price, you better stay away from the restaurant week menu and find something else in the menu for your own satisfaction and for the worth of spending.

    The dates wrapped in bacon are PHENOMENAL!! The patas bravas could have been a little bit more hot (temperature wise).. after all they are part of the hot tapas selection. The grilled octopus another excellent choice; grilled to perfection, not chewy & the salsa verde that comes with it— yum! We also had the Valenciana Paella, could have had a little bit of salt — in my opinion, but nonetheless delicious!

    We have been going to Tapas Valencia for years and have always enjoyed the food. Of late, the prices have increased beyond what can be attributed to inflation. Unfortunately, this means that we will not be able to go there as much as we would like to.

    The expectation for a delicious and flavorful Paella was expected when we decided to visit this restaurant. My boyfriend and I were disappointed that it was the total opposite. Appetizers were delicious. If we decide to visit again, it’ll be only for the appetizers.

    As a person who regularly eats at farm to table restaurants and can taste the difference between Costco and co-op sourced food, this was a Costco one. The ambiance was ok but the food very mediocre. Think freezer section aisle quality. I personally won’t go again but for folks who may not have a refined palate and enjoy other chain style restaurants, this might be sufficient. They do have heavy pours for their liquor though

    Joaquin, our waiter, was greeted us like family (we were not), guided us through the selection of tapas, (which we knew not), and recommended the most popular selections (which we did order). Sangria Rose made at our table (a pitcher) and we also ordered the Marisco )(seafood) Paella. Wish we ordered 2 for the 4 of us……Then we capped it off with 2 of the desserts. Lots of fun and food. Everyone said it was a winner.

    We can not say enough about our favorite neighborhood restaurant, Tapas Valencia. We moved here a few months after they opened 14 years ago. We have since dined there about once a week, and the food and service has never wavered. They are a great choice for weekly dining, for a special occasion, or a private party.

    The food is excellent, had the solomillo and this kitchen really knows how to make great steak! All the sauces are delicious and the vegetables are cooked perfectly. The service is top notch, constantly collecting used plates & silverware and bringing clean replacements. Personable, but not obtrusive.

    Wait staff marginal- took drink order and then waited 20 min until we alerted manager, who was extremely helpful and then we got ALOT of attention. Napkin dropped to floor and busboy put it back on table rather than replacing. So the staff is spotty, not well trained. Food was very good.

    I hosted a business dinner for 14 and had an excellent experience. The food was very good, the service was attentive and we lacked for nothing when we wanted. The flow of the tapas followed by paella was efficient and my guests commented on how well the service flowed. The wines were excellent and reasonably priced. We were placed in a back room for everyone's convenience, and fortunately the restaurant was moderately busy for a week night. Overall it was an outstanding experience.

    If you say Valencia paella then you must make that. The paella was not at all that. I lived in Valencia and had the traditional paella many times. You can NOT use tomato and or tomato sauce. Your paella is like Mexican Spanish rice with seafood. Sorry but you need to change the recipe. The restaurant itself is very nice and the waiters are excellent and very attentive. Food needs some work. Gracias
