    It smelled smoky. There were a lot of employees around, but my waiter was at the bar after he took my order until I got up to go pay. The music was so loud it felt like I was in a club and it kinda reminded me of one. The paella was very good.

    Need to know where to find it as maps put it on the wrong side of the building...but worth it. Very cool decor with flowers everywhere. Great Tapas, much more authentic than most. Service is great and the food comes out very fast. Lots of custom cocktails small but good wine list. Reasonable prices.

    This is a great place for small plates/tapas. This was our first time here. We opted for the "Taste of Spain," unlmited small plates for one price per person (1-1/2 hour limit). It was well worth it and everything we had was wonderful. We came close to having at least one of everything and it is a very substantial selection. We did notice that others who just did a la carte small plates actually had slightly bigger portions but hey, you want more, you just order another. The standouts were the pork belly, the serranno ham croquettes. and the brussels sprouts. We'll be back again!

    We ordered mostly off the small plates menu. A lot of the tapas seemed a bit underseasoned or just lacked flavor. The octopus was good, but the tortilla española was disappointing. We were seated outside, and I do like the venue.

    Went for brunch - the food and service were excellent and the venue was very beautiful with fabric flowers lining the walls. I will say the brunch was a little pricy and the time limit for drinks was only 90 minutes while the food was two hours which seemed a little strange. Overall though we loved it and will definitely be back.

    Ordered only small plates. Mostly vegetarian plus a salmon dish. The food was decent but not much different from restaurants of this type. The prices were reasonable. The service was rushed. Draft beers were not available. The server brought the bill without asking if we wanted a dessert.

    The food was sub-par and we had to send our steak back for being pretty raw when we requested medium rare. Overpriced for the quality of ingredients. The only saving factor was our attentive serving staff.

    We went last night for our anniversary. Wonderful food, drinks and service! They accommodated all of our requests and even gave us a free drink and a yummy dessert to celebrate! On top of it, I left my credit card there, and the server chased us down the street to return it! Thanks to Pamplona for a wonderful celebration and evening, and for amazing service!

    Nice evening for dining outdoors. Service was attentive and the wine was very good. A little noisy from the adjacent restaurant Bar Bao, but the atmosphere at Pamplona was pleasant. We ordered the duck paella which was average. The duck was dry and the rice was uncooked. Full disclosure, my family is from Valencia, the home of paella, so I know what a good dish tastes like. I will visit the restaurant again, but I'll stick with the small plates.
