Good Spanish

We haven't been back for several years and the decor hasn't changed but the food is fresh and tasty. The lobsters were delicous in green sauce and the shrimps stuffed with crab meat was awesome. Yellow rice and Spanish potatoes were just right as was the string beans. We were too full for dessert... read more

With its overstated, outdated (and I mean that in a good way) exterior, with its determinedly gracious dining room, with its ornate face in the middle of a series of unglamorous businesses, La Real Madrid looks like a bastion of tradition and gracious dining. It also looks surprisingly Italian, and so does much of the menu. I wanted to like... More

Let's start from beginning. Even after making reservation in advance you will wait for 20-30 minutes. Guys, this is not Micheline star restaurant to wait for. Prices? On expensive side. 350$ for 4 adults and 1 kids. And this is Staten Island, not Manhattan. For the the same price you can go to the perfect Spanish restaurant anywhere else. Cousine... More

Thought I was going to have a delicious fish dinner...wasn't concerned about the high prices (cheapest fish dish was $21.95) because I thought it would be great meal....I was wrong. Waiter didn't seem to want to be there....didn't tell us anything about the specials. We ordered stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer they had no taste and I'm pretty sure they... More

Went to celebrate a family member's birthday and we could not have picked a better place. Service was great. Wait staff was very pleasant and the food was excellent. Others have mentioned a sprucing up was needed. Maybe so but you hardly notice because everything else is so good. Of you want good Spanish food, this is the place to... More

First, let me agree that the place could use some sprucing up, but I enjoyed dining here so much that I still gave it an excellent rating. We went with a group of 7 at the last minute, after Lorenzo's couldn't find our reservation, and so glad we did! We waited approximately 10-15 minutes upon arrival as they had to... More

We visited family on Staten Island, and made a spontaneous decision to go out for dinner. We settled on Real Madrid after finding that two restaurants we were interested in were closed Not sure if it was because it was Monday &/or Labor Day. We picked RM from an online review. Our group of six were qickly seated The service... More

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
