Just had dinner here tonight. Yule( spelling?) was our waiter along with Tom. This was our 3rd visit here. Every single aspect bordered on perfection. From the service, to the food, we had a 1st class experience. Appetizer was Clams Casino , excellent, I had...a Spain salad with champagne vinagrette dressing. Excellent. My wife had Sole franchise. Outrageous, my grand daughter had Mariscada salsa verde. Outrageousl!! And I had a paella for one. It was tremendous. Yule seems to be the head waiter and is in control of the dining room. The entire experience was top notchMore

After hearing many people rave about Spain of Narragansett, I made reservations and took my wife here on 8/15/2020 for her birthday. We were seated as per our reservation for 6. Atmosphere: nothing special. Service: Shortly after we were seated, a server provided us with...bread and water; we then waited for 10 to 15 minutes before our server introduced himself and asked for our drink order. My wife had red sangria – not very good at all. I ordered a bourbon smash but received bourbon on the rocks. Server replied that the bartender was unsure of how to make it – well, if you’re unsure of how to make a drink you can always google it. I explained the basic ingredients to our server and he returned with a drink made in a beer mug, slid it in front of me and said “try this”, it tasted like a whiskey sour. Our table was the only one that did not have a lit candle – small detail, but we noticed. Food: For appetizers we had calamari which was ok, not fresh and a special caprese salad, which was outstanding, best item we tried. Then came our entree's: my wife had the new york sirloin, which was just ok. I had the mariscada spain, the seafood was not fresh and the dish had too much soggy spinach. When the best part of your dining experience is paying the bill and leaving, something is wrong!More

Quick summary: excellent food with a wide menu (not always easy to do for any restaurant.) Friendly, professional service. Very reasonable prices for the high quality. We had an annual gathering of extended family, and were very happy that Spain has re-opened carefully during these...COVID19 times. They are taking all the precautions for safe dining. While our group was somewhat smaller than usual, it was still a fairly good size. This allowed us to samples extensively from the menu. Most mains are in the $20 range and come with appropriate sides/veg. Some in our group had fish dishes, scallops, some paella (for two, $42.50) some pork chops (a favorite of a cousin who lives in the area,) pasta dishes with seafood, shrimp and saffron rice, etc. I had the veal dish I always look forward to -- veal corunesa (there are also other veal preparations.) Swordfish on special is always a winner if you like swordfish. My sister was also delighted with her surf & turf special ($34) Since we do a lot of sharing and the portions are a good size, we ordered at few assorted salads to share ($9 each, typically,) and plates of their excellent fried calamari ($13.50.) Our desserts (mostly $9, flan $7) included key lime pie, Bavarian apple tart, strawberry cheesecake, and flan. There were others on the menu that also sounded good. The portions here are large. You decide if you want to spilt with your dining companion, or have excellent leftovers at home. Everyone was very pleased with their food. Yet again, the kitchen is also amazing because they can serve EVERYONE at the table at the same time, even when we order such a wide variety. 'Not easy when we come with a good-sized family group. Very nice wine list by the bottle and glass, across a wide price range. They also do some wonderful cocktails, both innovative and classic. All reasonably priced. I cannot say enough about the fine service here - friendly and professional. The timely service for everyone is a marvel. Of course, I wish the world didn't have to deal with COVID19. However, this place does a fine job with careful service, spaced tables, masked waitstaff. I have to admit that the dining room was sociable, but with tables fewer and spaced out, not as noisy as it sometimes could get pre-COVID. They also do take-out, but I have always dined in. My local extended family has been happy with their take-out meals in the past. To sum - I already look forward to our next visit. In my mind, the kitchen in heaven is a lot like Spain. I could be happy to eat here every day.More

My boyfriend and I haven’t even had the food yet. However, I am writing this review because this place offers TERRIBLE customer service. I made reservations for 7:30PM the day before. I am sitting outside The restaurant an HOUR later than when my reservation was....The hostess’s have no idea what they’re doing. They’re seating everyone that came after us before us.

We had the takeout paella Valenciana for two. The portion would have fed four. It was mostly quite good, but the fish chunks in it were very overcooked and hard. The shellfish were fine, as was the flavoring of the saffron rice. The curbside pickup...was organized well.More

I eat at this restaurant every Friday and Saturday night. If you like swordfish it is the best you will every eat. It is cooked just the right way your taste buds enjoy. There veal spain is out of this world. Over the many years...I have been going here I have not had a bad meal. The bartenders are all very nice and helpful and attentive to there customers.
