We visited this restaurant on a Saturday and the dining room was full. It has the look of an older Spanish restaurant. The service was good although maybe a little slow on the keeping up with the water service. The Paella a la Valenciana, which I ordered was good with plenty of shrimp, scallops, clams and chicken (two people can... More

This restaurant, in the first floor of a neighborhood hotel, has been around for decades. Friends tell us of going for special occasions when they were young. Older male waiters know how to make the best neighborhood Sangria and the rolling table that brings your dinner is like watching the food channel, with separate ingredients placed on your warm plates....

I love paella and I was really looking forward to an authentic Spanish meal. The paella was OK, but nothing to rave about. The service was absolutely terrible. Even though the place wasn't very busy, it took forever to get served and even longer to get the check, despite asking for it a few times.

Classically elegant in old world style, this Spanish restaurant served typical dishes with style and panache. The food was very well done- especially the clams al ajillo, but the sangria was perhaps the best I've had in many a year. There are few restaurants around where a number of the waiters have been devotedly serving at the same establishment for... More

I really want to write a scathing review of this place just to keep other people away, because I think it should be my private restaurant and no one else can go there...But I'll be generous and give an honest review...Marbella is another of those hidden gems of Queens...Tucked away on the ground floor of a nondescript hotel, Marbella has...

We went to celebrate retirement of friend! While the food was excellent the service depended on the waiter who was attending us. We had ordered a cake for occasion and had to request what was not served so honoree could take it home.

Don't bother. Way overpriced. We were there last night with a large group. The service was terrible. The paella with lobster tail came with a shell without any meat inside - had to be sent back. The veal was very tough. And the service was horrible.

I am going to give this restaurant a "five" because the food has always been good every time I have been here. I believe they have been in business since 1964. This is an extraordinary long time for any restaurant in NY City with the exception of the very best. Fifty year says a lot. I won't say I am... More

Two things to note: there is no lunch menu [as such] just the regular menu; 2nd. after finishing a nice meal noticed the sign outside on leaving that said they offered 20% discount during the month of August [hello it's August!!!]. WE DIDN'T GET IT! Will share this with the restaurant, as this leaves BAD TASTE in one's mouth after... More

Marbella is absolutely a fine dining experience. It offers traditional Spanish cuisine which is excellently prepared and presentation.. Located in a hotel and with absolutely no frontage to mark its location, you have to know that Marbella is there. While a bit pricey for routine Dining it should be on everyone's list for special occasion.
