“Just like Spain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Better food then I had when I vacationed in Spain! Staff was friendly, we were on vacation and meeting friends in the Bay Area and they were happy to let us stay while we visited, even brought us over a glass of home made liquor and explained all the photos on the wall that were taken by the owners son who waited on us. Great experience!!!

“Real Spanish food in San Francisco”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

My wife and I were delighted to taste authentic Spanish food: gambas al ajillo (prawns in garlic sauce) and Paella.
The service was excellent and the wine too.

“So many choices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Went here with a group of friends - very helpful service - to decide what was best to order for the wine. Wonderful small plates and paella. Have been here repeatedly and would return. We were nervous because when we got there it was nearly empty but it was completely full when we left. Clearly a bit hit.

“Authentic Spanish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

I shall start by saying, I am from Spain. Alegrias is definitely authentic Spanish food, not some adaptation or california infused nonsense. Love that this is a family owned business. Their tapas are small in size, but packed with flavor. Their manchego flambeado has got to be one of the best I have ever tried. I'd say we ordered about 80% of the menu and everything was great, the only exception, the rabbit. It wasn't bad, it just didn't wow.Their paellas are equally delicious. One is defintely good enough to share for 2 people. Sangria is a must- careful though, it goes down easily. The restaurant itself is really charming, their walls filled with typical Spanish Tchotchkes and decor.

“Tapas in the Marina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Walking thru the Marina (San Francisco) and stumbled across this little Spanish restaurant with fantastic tapas, and a killer Paella, also the cab / Syrah by the glass was very nice
