We went for a friends bday party and the service was so slow and a little lackluster. The food was ok, I guess for the price you pay for what you pay for. The other obvious annoyance was that people were smoking when obviously they had no smoking signs all over. Management did nothing while the patrons were there. Last,... More

Went to Espana on a Saturday night to watch the Flamenco dancers. There is a cover charge if you go on a night they have the dancers. The dancers were nice and performed for quite a while. The food was quite bad. Everything seemed to be frozen and then heated up. We could not believe how awful it was. The... More

The service was okay, but the food was of a very poor quality. I ordered paella, which I had also many times in Spain. In comparison, this paella was like tasting a frozen TV dinner. The Flamingo show was great. Every dancer & musician was totally professional. If the food is poor, then the show almost doesn't matter to me.... More

My husband and I went on the recommendation of a coworker. We love spain, and enjoyed eating the various tapas and drinks while we were in spain. We were somewhat disappointed with this place. The tapas were bland, and portions were overpriced for their size. We understand the whole concept of tapas are small appetizers. We would recommend you eat... More

My mom and I visited almost a year ago and were taken by the ambiance, the music and the food. This time, even for tapas, the size of the food was small and not very tasty. Out of what we ordered paella, empanadas, mejillas, spinach artichoke dip and seafood pizza - only pizza was good. We did enjoy our drinks... More

We found a hair in my daugter's food and nicely informed someone. The waitress and owner Maripaz came over and the owner said she did not beleive me. She followed by rolling her eyes and walking away. I was so mad I just wanted to leave. The waitress apologized and said she always has to apologize for the owners rude... More
