    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.

    It was my first time dining at Tapas Valencia since moving to the neighborhood. The place is clean, the music is upbeat, and the customer service is superb. The food tasted good as well as the drinks! It’s a great spot for get togethers and date nights.

    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.

    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

    The food was so amazing we called in a to go order the next day. The staff was friendly and on top of any needs. Such an amazing dining experience, I would give them 10 stars if I could. I also was very impressed with the service they provide back to the community. For example, on Thanksgiving this restaurant is providing a traditional Thanksgiving meal to 1,000 people who are unable to afford to partake in the traditional holiday meal. Just an impressive place to dine all around.

The service is always friendly and knowledgeable. The price is right and valet parking was free. What more do you need??

    Food was excellent as usual but lots of drama and confusion when we asked for separate checks Never an issue in the past but policy must have changed And we were not told until we got the check We prefer separate checks so drinkers can relax and order whatever they like Being told when we asked for them when we ordered would have saved time and hassle when trying to leave

    Our food (multiple tapas and one entree) was outstanding - bacon wrapped dates are "to die for". Once we got the attention of someone service was outstanding. Our reservation was for 5:30pm, but it wasn't until 5:50 that we actually got a service to give us the menu of wines by the glass and could order drinks. By then we already knew what tapas we wanted to order. The reason for the delay was that we arrived right at a shift change and that many after Bears game people had arrived without reservations.
