My family has had a lot of occasions at Real Madrid and I am personally always happy with our experience. The owner and the wait staff treats us great every time and is very helpful and attentive. The food is awesome! I usually love any kind of shrimp dish, especially the shrimp diablo (a tad spicy, but I love that).... More

If you can navigate the parking lot you may have a good dinner. The room hasn't been updated in a while but the food is good. I like the house salad but the soup is from a can. My favorite is shrimp stuffed with crabmeat really good and too much to finish. The broiled lobster is a favorite and so... More

Real Madrid is a delicious night out. The service is excellent and the prices are great. A couple can enjoy dinner with drinks for less than $100 which is a treat in our area. The menu is standard for a spanish restuarant but executed beautifully. The atmosphere is sort of romantic, dark, but dated. The place hasn't been updated in... More

My family has frequented the Real Madrid for over 20 years. Pepe, the owner, is an outstanding host. He is always making sure everyone is happy, the waiters are moving rapidly and the food comes out just as ordered. We were a party of 10 celebrating 3 different occasions. We tasted 10 different dishes and, as always, we were extremely... More

The service was great, the food was great, and the portions were large. We will definitely come back. It was nice that the owner wtched nover everything from a distance to make sure everything...

Real Madrid is a local neighborhood Spanish restaurant featuring a variety of dishes from all over the Iberian peninsula. We recently had the pleasure of hosting a 40th Birthday party for our daughter. As it turned out there were 40 individuals including 7 children invited. The kids were as good as gold in their behavior. The menu was so varied,... More

I really enjoyed this place. It was a good experience, the food is good, the design of the place is nice, the workers are good, I even liked the music. I had the seafood platter fra diablo, it was great. The reason why I did not give this place excellent is because it was pretty dimly lit in there and... More

My family and I (party of 7) have been to Real Madrid on several occasions. This time was to celebrate my Mom's 83rd birthday. We started our meal with fried shrimp appetizers and they were delicious. Our entrees consisted of lobster and shrimp over lasagne (one of the specials of the day), braised chicken, broiled pork chops, and broiled veal... More
