Please read the review from the lawyer mom with twins, as it is as amusing as it is accurate about the "rules" and service. Maybe also read a five star review or so too to balance it out. Usually very good food, albeit pricey, at Iberia. But served in the atmosphere of Spain when it was ruled by the fascist... More

I am someone that reads reviews, but doesn't write them often. After my experience this evening at Iberia I feel an obligation to share the poor treatment we received. Even though the food is pretty tasty, it is the type of business that does not deserve your patronage, and will NEVER get mine again. My good friend wanted to go... More

Go in with friends for tapas and wine at the bar. It beats flying to Spain but makes you feel you are there for an hour or two.

Great service, good ambiance, nice privacy of the booths. Tapas can be hit or miss, this place is definitely a hit.

Plan on doing a lunch of tapas with house made sangria and them a nap. The paella can be all over the map and for the price -- not worth the risk

Have been here a couple of time. Great atmosphere but the food and service can be very spotty. Paella the last time I went was over cooked. For the price I expect more consistency.

I love the food of Spain from Barcelona to San Sebastian. I guess Iberia tries to span the lot. I was a guest at a business dinner, so didn't see whether they do add the 19%, which I'd class as outrageous, and didn't know about during the visit. Anyway, we got seated on a Friday night without a reservation, and... More

Iberia Restaurant is tucked away on a quiet street on the other side of the railroad tracks, so lot of people do not know about it. But it is one of my favorites. The ambience is elegant but quiet -- it is a great place to go for conversation, even with groups. The gazpacho malagueno (white, almond-based cold soup) is... More

The Good: - The food - those bacon wrapped dates are very tasty! The Bad: - Mandatory 19% service charge regardless of party size. - Service...unfriendly wait staff. Also, every time I have been there, the wait staff refuses to seat us until the whole party has arrived even when the restaurant is empty. This is unacceptable. - Overpriced There... More

Ever since vacationing in Spain, my husband has been craving for tapas and Jamon. We tried this place cause it had pretty good ratings in opentable. For dinner you can only order tapas from the bar and not the dining area which is not ideal since we wanted to have a really nice dinner. Their glass of sangria is almost... More
