Better tapas selection than most

Recommended by a family member who had been a couple times. I've been to several tapas places in Chicago, which is all i have to compare this place to. I thought they had a larger selection in general, and the items themselves were not all typical, which i found to be wonderful. I feel like... read more

We had dinner last night at this restaurant. We chose it because of the beautiful atmosphere. We wanted to eat on the patio, which we did and it was lovely. It was a Friday night, and they had a flamenco show. They had Spanish guitar players prior to the show and it was beautiful soft music. Once the show started,... More

I had dinner at Tapas Papa Frita with a colleague after work one night. We tried Tapas Papa Frita based upon reviews in TripAdvisor. Once again, the reviews were spot on. The food was delicious and the presentation was amazing. We had the meatballs, sirloin steak, clams, white asparagus, a cheese dish with the house Sangria. We finished with the... More

....as well as service staff that knows that they are talking about. Live entertainment outside (inside too?). Absolute favorite Tapas restaurant to date. They deserve at least one visit. You will not be disappointed/

Every weekend my partners first question is where are we going to dinner..lol. After a week of telling my guests where to eat in the Valley, I wanted something fun, relaxed and experience cuisine that I am not familiar with. After parking at the Nordstom parking garage (best place to park for this neighborhood) we walked across the pedestrian bridge... More

We had Valentines Dinner and it was a treat. The waiter was fantastic and his wine recommendation was spot on. The dinner was a set course for the evening and it was fantastic. Great view and people watching location.

Place is very nice with live music. Food experience was indeed very poor. I got a Fideua which was cocked very badly. No flavour. Also Paella of my friend was the worst I got in my life.

We have seen this place over the years, but have never gone in. WOW was that a mistake. We booked for New Years Eve, it was over the top fantastic!!!! The food was amazing. We had the stuffed figs, crab stuffed peppers, lamb chops beef tenderloin skewers, pork tenderloin with almonds, and calamari. I have had what I thought were... More

There is an extensive wine selection which complements your dinner choices. The paella is superb and full of seafood and other meats. Try the roasted red pepper tapa. Staff are attentive and offer good suggestions. The chef made rounds to various tables and was very welcoming.

I sent back the first glass of wine and didn't really like the second glass. It might have been that the bottle had been opened for awhile. The appetizers were ok, but the service and atmosphere was great. It may be that they had too busy of a night and things weren't going that well.
