The food and service is excellent. The manager is actually from Spain, so he supervises that the dishes are carefully cooked in a Spanish way. I definitely recommend it.

Every time I go to this restaurant, I have a wonderful dining experience. I have been going to this restaurant for the past 20 years. From the moment you walk in the door you are treated like a true customer. They even make some meals at your table. The chef always comes out to talk to you. Same chef for... More

I've been going here since 1968 and it has never disappointed me. The very best preparation of fish I have ever had anywhere in the USA. Succulent, lucious and delishest - it is the best.

Great meal, just as good as I remember. Had been there several years ago and were not sure if we would find it or if our high expectations would be met. They did not disappoint.

We go here with friends every year on the Friday before Preakness. The service is always outstanding and the food is fantastic. We love the sangria and the potato puffs as appetizers. We had a variety of meals including stuffed lobster, seafood pastry, and tournedos. Each was excellent. One of our friends from Long Island said it was one of... More

We had a dinner for 12 at this restaurant and it was great. The food is upscale Spanish/Mediterranean. The prices and the food are upscale, perfect for a special event. Our crew loved it, and there was much sampling of wines and various dishes. I can't recall anyone getting a disappointing dish. This is not one of those hushed, reserved... More

I've been going to Tio Pepe's since I was 16 and now I'm much older than that. We would go for special occasions. I remember fondly going there for my 21st birthday. We've been there for Valentine's Day, Anniversaries, Christmas Eve (last year) and most recently we brought 11 people to dinner on Mother's Day after my daughters recital. They... More

Had dinner last week and one touted specialty is the shrimp in garlic appetizer which was good. Outstand was the entrée of soft shelled crabs that were cooked to perfection. Large and meaty, they could be served with several sauces and came with nice side of fresh vegetables. service was friendly and attentive.
