My husband and I ate here while staying in Annapolis for the weekend - we chose to come here due to the great reviews here on TA - we were not disappointed. One huge tip - make reservations days in advance if you can - this place gets packed and the reservations fill up quick. The chips and salsa were... More

Enjoyed great tapas and good wine and sangria in the bar area on a Sunday night. Recommend ceviche, artichokes, guacamole, beef with blue cheese. And even better with happy hour prices.

This restaurant has been my favorite for years. Great tapas and from 4-7pm at the bar you get them half off + specialty drinks. Recommend a reservation, for this gem in Annapolis suburbs.

While the outside looks like a regular strip mall store front. Once you enter Jalapeno's you step into a different world. The food is great. Mexican, Cuban and Spanish dishes that all are very tasty. My wife and I and guests have eaten here many times and have always been delighted.

Jalapenos continues to be our favorite Annapolis restaurant. Happy hour is a great value and owners are always on hand with a familiar greeting and excellent service.

Don't let the strip mall fool you. This little restaurant is a GEM! Fantastic food, great atmosphere and the best Chili Relleno EVER! Great selections of wine and some of the best sangria in town. Happy Hour munchies are also delicious and surprisingly cheap. If you are in Annapolis, eat here. It's where the locals eat.

awesome and relaxing dinner after being stuck in traffic for an hour on 97. Person waiting for us was moved to another table since we were late, and when we got there a larger table opened up and we were moved. I had scallops in white sauce with rice and had very good flavor and another table mate said her... More

Went here with a date because I was told it was a really great date spot. Ordered tappas and of the four plates we tried the flavors were muddled and the food mediocre at best. The wine was not very good either. I immediately crossed this place off my list.

Prepare yourself for amongst the most complete Spanish, not Mexican, restaurants you have been to. The guacamole is individually made for your order. The menu, which I have nearly tried everything, is awesome, the ambience is very comfortable and correct for the style of cuisine served. Again, the food is excellent, the service is great the owner stops by to... More

In celebrating a birthday, the honoree selected this place! Okay, another usual Mexican meal of beans and rice, etc., I wondered. Wow to my surprise, they had Paella on the menu and it was available for lunch and it wouldn't take all night to prepare! This is too good to be true. We started with the calamari which was very...
