This place closed in February. No word on what they are doing with the building. Probably a good thing, the food was just okay and overpriced.

Once at Sangria was enough. Young people still go there and they have, amazingly, stayed in business, but the food is lousy. Even the sangria isn't good!

My group from work celebrated a co-worker's job change with tapas and sangria. The sangria wine/brandy flavor was accented with a variety of fruit. Very tasty and thirst quenching. We ordered several tapas, the more unusual the better. We topped it off with paella. The dish was saffron yellow and tasted authentic. The restaurant has been apointed in bold colors... More

Four different entrees were ordered. The waitress served two of them wrong. One wasn't ordered and the other was given to the wrong customer. We had to ask for a fresh dinner rather than just trading the plate after a bite was taken. Unbelievable. All four entrees were mediocre at best and one was taken off our bill because our... More

Having been to Spain and traveled the country, I know what Tapa's are supposed to taste like. Tapa's are made fresh with fresh ingredients, and tend to show the expertise and originality of the chef who prepares them. Sangria's Tapa's are much like American - Mexican food in that they bear little resemblance to these foods when prepared, served, and... More

Most dinner times its romantic and decent food. This is a popular "girls night out" type place for the 30-somethings professionals.

The Blue Cheese Fritters are a must. Tried the cold avocado half with chicken and raisins and really liked it. My husband likes the fact they have some draft beer.

Been many times for the Sangria and outdoor patio. Like the tapas, some better than others, but the best thing on the menu is Paella.

I like this place in that it offers decent tapas and other Spanish food, very nice Sangrias, and upstairs you can Salsa all night. There is outside seating, so summer times is nice too. It is a great choice for dining out.

I have had very good service at Sangria and often take out of town visitors there. I agree with the other paella reviews. The tapas, on the other hand, has been terrific (this could be because I emphasize to the server that I want the minimum amount of oil used). The sangria is excellent. I have also enjoyed the wine...
