The restaurant is tucked behind some trees and there isn't a bright sign to indicate the location of the restaurant. As I entered, there was fantastic music playing that instantly created a different vibe. Also, the decor had a traditional feel with lots of wood chairs, tables, and accents around the bar. There was a fire place burning small logs... More

Unfortunately for us, it was the only open restaurant for July 4 dinner. We celebrated my daughter's Birthday with my elderly parents, who are locals and are not able to travel too far. Service was beyond horrible. We asked for the water twice, bottle was placed, but water not poured in the glasses. There was no change of the dirty... More

This is a long running private owned establishment, where the traditional Spanish favorite is the hit. Good: if you are in for the authentic taste of Spain, you won't be disappointed Bad: it is a little outdated, not the new "in thing" Why I like it: the food is well prepared, service team is knowledgable, (not hip), and tradition is...

I have eaten in the restaurant, tapas bar, and little cafe on the side. The paella in the restaurant is delicious. (So is the Sangria.) It is a beautiful setting. The atmosphere, whether you're in the elegant restaurant or cozy tapas bar, is wonderful. I love shopping and eating lunch in the little cafe. Don't miss the little cheese biscuits.... More

We enjoyed the food here & service was good. Around the bar, they have some small tables & around 6pm we had no problem getting seated. The bar area serves tapas but the main dining room does not, so when making reservations or thinking of dining here, note that. The vegetarian tapas items were nice - we had mushrooms, cabbage...

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.
