They closed their old location after New Year and opened in Belmont recently on El Camino Real north of the intersection with Ralston. I don't know why TripAdvisor hasn't updated the address yet. Seven of us met here for tapas at the request of one of our Hispanic colleagues who regards this as the most authentic tapas restaurant in the... More

We a group of people (around 20) sat outside in a circle and ordered many dishes. The food just went on and on in one round and another.Tasty, and overall a good place for chatting while eating.

They took about 30 mind to finally get them.we all had the paella for dinner was was good as well. But then we all sat with empty plates in front of... More

We stopped in for some drinks and tapas on a Monday afternoon. Enjoyed sitting at the old classic bar, and found the cocktails to be first rate. However, ordered tapas and had to wait, wait, wait. Bartender apologised, but for some reason they never were able to deliver the tapas as described in the menu. Said they were "waiting on... More

Our son took us as a Mothers Day gift for tapas and drinks one evening. They will not reserve tables. There were 5 of us: our son, his wife, and three parents in our seventies. My husband and I arrived a little before 6PM. We told the hostess there would be 5 of us. She said we had to wait... More

After 10 years we decided to try Iberia again. Big mistake. I can't remember worse food and service. We started with gazpacho. At Iberia is is a vile concoction of almond liquid which was tepid. We rejected it and asked for the tomato gazpacho...you know, the kind the world recognizes as gaspacho It was thin and tasteless and had none... More

Iberia Restaurant in Menlo Park is located beyond a railroad and kind of hidden from traffic, but once you find it, you will never forget it. I discovered it a few years ago only because I was looking for a parking spot and found it just outside Iberia restaurant. It was a warm Autumn day, people were eating "al fresco"... More

The restaurant is tucked behind some trees and there isn't a bright sign to indicate the location of the restaurant. As I entered, there was fantastic music playing that instantly created a different vibe. Also, the decor had a traditional feel with lots of wood chairs, tables, and accents around the bar. There was a fire place burning small logs... More

Unfortunately for us, it was the only open restaurant for July 4 dinner. We celebrated my daughter's Birthday with my elderly parents, who are locals and are not able to travel too far. Service was beyond horrible. We asked for the water twice, bottle was placed, but water not poured in the glasses. There was no change of the dirty... More
