    We love this place and come here often, but our last visit was just a bit off (still amazing food & wonderful servers but super slow with some mishaps). We'll chalk it up an off night and be back soon!!

    Terrible service. It took 2 hours to get food delivered to the table and the same amount of time for the server to acknowledge that anyone needed even water even after we asked numerous times.

    Paella was tasteless, the seafood and vegetables in it were mushy, the rice was wet and soggy. Very surprising for a place with great service and that prides themselves on being the “paella masters.” The staff were very nice though and we genuinely felt bad telling them the truth about how bad the seafood paella was. I hope this was just an off night and that the quality is supposed to be much better.

    First lets start with how welcoming the gentleman at the door was. He sat us and offered us to "enjoy his home". Originally, we were going to grab a light brunch but after talking over the menu, we ended up getting empanadas and the Seafood Paella! OMG it was amazing. We took home some so cant wait to enjoy that as a late night snack! The atmosphere and service we're hands down the best! Thank you for the experience.

    I don't know what I've been eating all these years but they weren't empanadas! I tasted empanadas for the very first time at Tapelia the other day. They were out of this world! Crispy, fresh, hot, tasty, absolutely delicious! The food at this place is OUTSTANDING, as is the service! I've never had paella that tasted so good. The meal was perfect! A MUST for anyone in the area!

    This place is incredible... The food is all you can ask for. The experience is amazing from the moment you meet the host until you pay the check. Our host was extremely nice and informative. Santiago P., our server, was incredible and super attentive to every little detail. I recommend the croquetas, the sangria and the mussels 1000% and the bread is to die for. There's nothing about the place, the food, the drinks or the staff that's not perfection. A must have experience.

    We had a wonderful evening at Tapelia, South Beach, The food was so delicious and flavorful. So many options! I didn’t get to try all the items I wanted. I got too full! The atmosphere was perfect- chic, open air and relaxing. Our server Laura was extremely welcoming, catering and attentive. She went above and beyond! I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will certainly visit again when we are in town again!

    We stopped by for a light brunch and i have to say, this was a very delicious Spanish cuisine and experience with a variety of dishes.Our server Rafaela was perfectly delightful and helped with our selections. We had croquetas and calamari along with a seafood paella and mimosas. It was exquisite! The outdoor dining was great for people watching and enjoying the nice weather.

    Such a fun lunch there yesterday. We of course sat outside on a beautiful partly cloudy day The staff were great especially our Waiter Fernando. But now the food.. we started with appetizers, calamari and oysters natural both done perfectly ! For the main course, my son opted for their house specialty flank steak with fries and a garden salad with balsamic vinaigrette. I had a pot of mussels with a spicy bourbon based sauce both so delicious. Best part - reasonably priced : )

    I went here with my family and the food and service was absolutely amazing! The service was good; the people were friendly and welcoming. I would recommend the flatbreads. The Pollo one blew my mind. Their Spanish Paella is the absolute best in the whole world. I would give these guys six stars if I could!

    We started with a Pitcher of Sangria Tasty and a generous value. Next, the Empanada's trio, Delicious We shared a 1/2 pot of Mussels, which were good and a large portion amount. The Best thing we had was the Whole Fried Red Snapper. Cooked perfectly and again a large amount to share for two. We would return again!
