Bayside has no shortage of restaurants. Tried Sangaritas for the first time. Nice small plates (not too small). Flavorful and well prepared. Service was friendly, attentive and made us feel like we were valued guests. The Croquetas de Jamon was especially good as was the traditional sangria. Safe to say we will return.

I didn't know what to order coming into the restaurant as I didn't look too much into the menu when reserving, but I knew it was good from other reviews. When looking at the menu at the restaurant, everything looked good! We settled on five of the tapas choices, the roasted cauliflower, the stuffed mushrooms, the croquetas de jamon, the grilled squid with hummus, and the chicharron. Every plate was delicious and just enough to make you ready for the main course. The paella was filling and flavorful. The only thing missing was the crispy bottom of rice, but that can be overlooked. The desserts were also delicious. The flan was light and sweet. The ice cream with espresso was smooth and creamy. You can't go wrong having a dinner here with your significant other or a party of friends. Plus the fruit sangrias are nice and light. You won't notice your cup is done until your pitcher is done too! The wait staff is also very friendly and helpful with suggesting choices to order. I will definitely be returning again.

Great entertainment

Delicious tapas

Only complaint is that multiple dishes served at once in rapid succession ! Not the way tapas should be served

Pace it out and let us enjoy the meal

First time here! Great spot. Tapas menu was great with lots of different options. We had garlic shrimp. Tuna. Baked clams. Seafood paella. All delicious. Paella was moist and fish was fresh.

Sangria (red) was great. Not sweet and had a kick to it. Will be back

We ordered lobster paella and they gave use walnut crackers to open the claws. I punctured my hand with the shell. However they did give me a band aid and some sangria. Just don’t order lobster till they get some real crackers. The wait staff were very attentive!

Sangarita’s is a gem! The service is wonderful, the food is outstanding and the drinks are delicious! What more can you ask for? There are many different sangrias to choose from including peach, leechee, mango and more. The appetizers are not to be missed. Start with the chicharrón, small fried pork belly pieces served with a yummy oil, vinegar and garlic sauce and fried plantains. Then move on to the grilled octopus. If you have never eaten octopus then this is the place to try it. The octopus is perfectly grilled and tender. Afterwards order the garlic shrimp and don’t forget to ask for bread to sop up the sauce. You can’t leave without tasting the paella. It’s a perfect appetizer or main dish.

We've been wanting to try this place since it opened and so glad we did. We went on Wednesday which is Happy Hour for ladies! Sangria is delicious and strong. Their food comes out FAST so be warned. We were greedy little pigs and ordered a LOT of tapas and they just kept coming out. Next time I'll know to order them a little at a time. (Going back tonite actually.) They have a tasting menu. Looks interesting but I think you have to be very hungry!

Sangarita's never disappoints. They always have lots of Sangria and cocktail options. This weekend they had Pear and White Grape sangria. Lots of great appetizers and dinners. Also easy to pair a few appetizers into a great meal. Don't miss the Salumeria, an assortment of Spanish hams and cheeses.

Overall, food was amazing But service could of been better. Although mangers did accomodate us because of the slow service and missing entrees/apps, if I didnt Say something they’d probably charge us anyway.
Margaritas were good, strong enough. No music really, so it can get loud with people talking.

We enjoyed a nice evening at Sangarita's. Our family grew up in Bayside so we decided to go back to the neighborhood. They offer complementary valet parking as the restaurant is located on a busy strip. The staff was very friendly from the hostess to waiter to servers. They were all courteous, patient and very knowledgeable with their recommendations. We enjoyed all the tapas and paellas and would rate them all very high... we've had tapas from all over the country as well as Spain. The dishes here were very flavorful and moderately priced. We were seated downstairs and were glad we were there as it was less busy and more quiet. We selected Sangarita based on the good reviews and it did not disappoint.
