    My friend and I are there for a lunch/dinner reservation. We ordered seafood paella . There were four pieces of lobster and two shrimp . We had asked to keep the octopus out. One would think that they would add more shrimp or lobster. The Paella was wonderful. However , more seafood would have made it delicious! Service was great !

    I had lunch and dinner in Tereferic many times. Foods are always good, as well as cocktails. Just getting $$$ (+20% gratuity) and a touch smaller than pre-pandemic, especially the paella (getting thinner and thinner). Well, the gasoline price is so high and it creates ripple effect. Regardless the $$$, I will recommend people to eat here.

    Oh boy has the quality decreased at this once terrific restaurant. Seems like they've prioritized speed above all, in order to turn tables faster. The brussels sprouts were hard--barely cooked. The other appetizers were meh and undercooked, including the once delicious crab puffs and the chorizo balls. On top of that, the shrimp in the paella hadn't been cleaned--there was still that nasty trail of black "guts" in every single one--basically inedible. Only one tapas dish was good--the tuna tartare tacos. The music was so loud we could hardly hear each other. There are so many other fun restaurants around, we won't be dining here again.

    We came especially for the tuna tacos - eventually we received everything other than the tuna tacos. When we asked when the tuna tacos is going to be out the waiter told us “at the end” we waited 15 min more and asked again - then the waiter checked and told us the kitchen run out of tuna. Very disappointing!!!

    Love TELÈFERIC BARCELONA - PALO ALTO, however tonight was a little off. Food either too salty or not enough seasoning, and plates arrived in a flurry and we felt rushed. Aggressive bussing of the plates! If there's still food on the plates, please don't grab without asking first. We sat inside and it's very noisy. Drinks on point as always. Presentation and quality of food beautiful as always. Our server was lovely, polite and attentive. We're big fans and frequent often and typically they are always on point across the board.

    I have gone to Teleferic several times now. The experience is always outstanding. I like to go there with friends and share the tapas. This can be a real opportunity to try different dishes and share them. I've always tried something new each time. There is energy in the air, but not too noisy that you can't enjoy your group discussion. The staff is well trained and always there to serve you. They openly ask if there is anything they can do that would make my experience better. This is great for a date, great with friends, and unique food experience.

    The food was just “meh” this visit. I was excited to introduce my coworkers to Teleferic, but sadly, they probably won’t be back. The food was Luke-warm and lacked something. I’ve been a loyal customer since opening and this visit was the most unsatisfying. Lots of wait staff but not a lot of attention to our experience.

    The service goes great we ordered the appetizer - pan con tomato, main- squid ink paella, dessert- churros and bask cookie with ice cream. For a drink I got the non-alcoholic sangria would highly recommend for refreshing and delicious taste. Everything was great the Paella had great flavor only thing I would like to change was the seafood was over cooked on top the shrimp was dry and the scallops shrunk.

    Always a wonderful dining experience! Food was delicious and the service was warm, friendly and welcoming. We always go to Teleferic for special occasions from birthdays to anniversaries! This time to celebrate our son’s baptism with family. It was their first time tasting Spanish food and enjoyed it! We’ll be back for sure!

    Been here a few times. This time, an unfortunate water leak happened and I had reserved a business dinner with people who flew in from out of state. We were in danger of having to find a new place but they were able to squeeze us in and get the business running which I appreciated. The food is good. Service is good. This rating is because I was so stressed out about finding another place within an hour of my reservation.
