Great food, but damn - switch it up every now and then! Good service and great tasting food. Same stuff almost every time, though. Getting lazy, or too busy with other restaurants?

Gloria! You could just sing her name! The restaurant is amazing, the atmosphere-if you go on the right night;) is awesome! And the food is magnificent! Especially the Paella and the Stuffed plums:) they are stuffed with goat cheese and some other surprises! It is a must to go and check this place out :)

The food here was ok. The tapas were nice. The garbonzo beans were really tasty. The empanadas lacked filling. We got the paella and it was ok. Everything seemed very salty. The service was excellent. This was our first visit and we will probably try again.

Locals just call it Gloria's in honor of the owner, who draws on her heritage to create a menu with Cuban and Mediterranean influences. At lunch, you may receive a lagniappe of fried plantain ribbons with oil and herbs. The Bolognese sauce here is the benchmark in town, and the Caesar Salad with chicken is consistently perfectly prepared. The owner... More

Three couples enjoyed great food once again here. I had the Snapper special that found my plate completely empty at the end. Their Bruschetta is the best according to my wife. They have a $15 corkage fee, so I always bring a nice bottle of my wine. The only less than perfect part of the dining is a little bit... More

We stopped here for the first time on 4-29-16, and enjoyed a wonderful lunch. We both had salads, with me having one with eggplant and Susan enjoyed a piece of Mai Mai on her's. The greens were fresh and crisp and my stuffed eggplant was done to perfection. The fish was one of the best I have had in the... More

People in our group who ordered meat dishes seemed happy. Fish eaters were unified in the dissatisfaction. My paella was overly salted and dry- same complaint from others.

First time visit to this restaurant; it was recommended by friends. Yes, busy was expected but once seated we were "instructed" by our waitress that "we are very busy due to reservations and needed to make our order all at once" whatever that means. Very noisy but lively. Parking availability poor. In an old strip shopping center
