The restaurant ambiance is quite attractive and appealing, and the service is prompt and consistent. But I’m terms of the food, it is at best a Spanish-inspired bistro. Only about a third of the small dishes - tapas - have anything Spanish, and even then, they veer towards interpretation rather than authenticity. The flavors are adequate, but not memorable. Good place overall, but if you’re looking to eat authentic Spanish, this restaurant is probably not the place.
Chicken and Waffles are top notch
Great food and service. Really enjoyed our time.
Do the bottomless tapas, food here is phenomenal!
The staff were so kind! We loved the inside of the restaurant with its winter decorations. The ambiance is so cozy. The tapas we got were delicious and I loved the $7 mojitos deal on Thursday. They were refreshing. Our server also came out with some free churros since we were there celebrating a special occasion. Overall, a great experience!
The food was wonderful. We choose to do the taste of Spain and it did not disappoint. Our first round of drinks (all Pamplona cocktails) were good but not anything to write home about. We ended up with margaritas for the second round and they were great. The service was spotty. Unfortunately there was only one server for the entire restaurant (at least 10 tables). Sometimes the server was very on top of things. Other times she seemed to dismiss the third person in our party. That was disappointing.
Alvino is hot and our server was great.
Great seasonal cocktails! The service was very prompt and our food came very quick
Excellent duck Paella
Good Spanish wine selection; would benefit from adding a few Portuguese wines
Great spot with good service. Will be back
We got there for brunch after Christmas and food was not good, some dishes were cold. Our server was ok? But his breath stink even thru the mask.
Really enjoyed the food and the front desk staff were very nice. They were able to accommodate my party of 3 instead of 2. However, our waiter needed some work. He wasn't engaged at all. He forgot our coffee, fruit, and brought over the wrong mimosa pitcher. He was very nice, but really needed to pay more attention to our table. The food was really good, so it helped to make up for our waiter. I will definitely be back though.
The food was delicious! We had the Taste of Spain which is unlimited tapas for an hour and a half. The truffle Mac n cheese, OMG the best, so good and a must try. We also had the roja sangria and it was just as good as the food. I would go early because as the crowd grew the service slowed a bit but the staff were wonderful. I would recommend this place and we’ll be going back.
The holiday decorations (and decor in general) looks great! Super cool vibe in there. Got both holiday themed cocktails but they missed the mark. Food was decent, best was the pork belly, but the service was really slow, some of our food orders never got sent back to the kitchen, and when we got the check it sat at our table so long another server had to come take it so we could leave. Unfortunately wouldn’t come again.
Loud room, service was cold and brusque. They put us on a 2 hour time limit (fine) and started asking us to leave after 90 minutes - despite open tables throughout the dining room. Food was only okay.
We went on a Thursday night. The service and food cannot be match. Definitely returning soon
We love the place! service was good drinks and foods served fast and happy hour is amazing!
Taste of Spain was a great option for our party of four. Small plates were delicious and varied.
Brunch Food was tasty but expensive for the variety of options available. Lots of poached eggs. Hard to share.
We had a large group of 10 and I have to say the service was excellent.
Very good place! We did the never ending small plates and our waiter was really helpful in giving us tips on what to order and keeping the dishes flowing constantly! We really appreciated that.
Food was delicious and it was the perfect amount. Absolutely love the variety of food.
Only con: We were first seated at a table very close to others which was a bit concerning since we are still in a pandemic. Only particular about this because there were tons of empty tables available in other places. We asked the host could we move and they were so accommodating. Awesome service!
Overall a great experience and we can’t wait to come back!
Had a good time and experience at Pamplona and Miguel was very attentive.
Great food. Excellent service. Totally reasonable prices.
Experience was great! Our waiter was fun and exciting. Two of our friends had never ate here so the server was happy to help and he was very knowledgeable! All around great experience.
Very good good, service was slow at first but picked up as the evening progressed
We had a great time and ate well. Definitely a good date night option.
Food and service were amazing! Definitely a great brunch experience
Delicious brunch and quick service
Great service !
Great experience for a family dinner. The staff was accommodating. We originally wanted to be seated outside. However, upon arrival we changed our minds and requested inside. The host and manager (both Tylers) sat us at the bar for drinks and appetizers and were able to shortly get us a table inside. The lamb shank was amazing. So tender that I didn’t even need a knife. Kudos to the chef and the entire Pamplona team. My family and I will definitely be returning.
Excellent food and even better service! Instagram worthy presentation. Def one of my favorite places to dine!
Best lamb chops I’ve had in a while
Great brunch experience! Very tasty food, quick service, and reasonable priced. Would definitely dine again!
As usual, brunch was perfect. Servers and service staff were quick and helpful
Service was terrible
Our server Michael was great. Grilled cheese and scallops were two dishes that stood out, will definitely be back again.
Had an amazing time met definitely going back food was great
Dinner was great. Sara was very helpful with her suggestions of tapas. The manager Alvino stopped by and made sure everything was perfect and surprised us with churros. Really made my birthday celebration feel special. We decided to come back later in the night for their “House Party”. The bartenders Amanda and Tyler were great! Super fast, energetic, and friendly. We just moved here and they told us all about Clarendon nightlife, including the restaurant’s Halloweens events. Looking forward to coming back for Halloween Costume brunch!
Great dining experience. Service was very good. Calamari and the grilled cheese were amazing appetizers. The seared scallops were great as the chorizo on the dish made it like a surf and turf, but my favorite was the grilled pork chop. Best I’ve had in a while
What a great find, we just moved into the neighborhood and found this gem tucked away. Bottomless mimosas for brunch and great food.
