Everything was consistently good here. It is very authentic so you have to like real spanish food. The paella is served for two but three people could share it. All the portions were huge. They bring out a dessert tray but they also have sorbets that are delicious. The mango is actually served in half a mango. Coconut was very... More

I visited Tio Pepe for lunch in December for our department Holiday Celebration. We all had the specials which where outstanding! We also shared a pitcher of the Sangria which was delicious. The atmosphere is quite cozy - the restaurant is on the ground floor of a building and you feel like you are in a cellar - but the... More

We went recently with a large group a friends, my first visit. The house-made Sangria is outstanding! Lots of fruit in your glass to soak up the wine and eat when your glass is empty. The black bean soup was delicious! A very diverse menu - there is something for everyone. If you can, save room for dessert. It took... More

Tio Pepe is fairly old school, but continues to impress. Its a perfect place for a larger group, or a special occasion, and they are very tolerant of a lively dinner party. The sangria is the best around, as is any of their entrees with the champagne crab sauce. I would recommend the many off menu items: fish in a... More

In the late 90s, we happened to stop in at Tio Pepe's on a whim. We fell in love with the paella and the sangria - and I went over the top with the Spanish coffee. Over the years, we've continued to return for this favorite of meals. However, when we're brave enough to miss our favs, we've ventured into... More

Excellent from start to finish. Snails prepared in classic fashion. Shrimp with garlic sauce excellent appetisor. Paella for 2 was enough food for 4 people's and nicely presented. Service was good. Red sangria was of high quality and one of the best sangrias that I've had, and reasonably priced. From out of area but will return again when in Baltimore.

Very old school charm. Very polite and good service. The lobster claws were amazing. They had a wonderful wine selection. Really enjoyed it and would go back again.

It is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. You are sure to have a great meal. Save room for dessert, you must try the pine nut cake.
