I visited here with my boyfriend on the back of positive reviews on here, and it did not disappoint!

We didnt have a reservation and the place was very busy when we arrived (6:15pm on a Tuesday). Luckily we got seated right near the area where the chefs were preparing the food, which was very interesting to watch. We got bread to start with, which came with oil and was delicious. We got a selection of other dishes, both meat and vegetarian. They were all absolutely divine. The chicken and pork were succulent and tasty.

The waiter was attentive and very knowlegable.

The meal came to just over $100, which we thought was reasonable given how much we had eaten and how delicious it was.

Would definitely recommend this place. Best tapas we ever had!!

Cool restaurant, good vibe, very good food. Service fell off as the place became more crowded, and the timing of the courses could have been better. A little slow to refill drink orders. We ordered all our tapas at once and asked to stagger them... which started out well, but by the end we got certain dishes way too late. Our last dish was served probably 10 minutes after we had finished. That was annoying, but not unforgivable. I'll go back... maybe just not on a Saturday night.

This restaurant was hands down the best restraunt I have been to during my many trips to DC. Great Spanish food without an empty table. Worth the walk to 14th Street NW and P street area. I'll go there again.

Estadio has great atmosphere- sit in the back and watch the chefs prepare the fresh food- they're friendly and fun to watch. My husband and I celebrated our engagement night- it's fancy enough for that. :) And we recently went with two good friends. Four of us ate a wide variety of dishes and drank sangria and the bill only came to $100 total. The tapas are creative and succulent. The wait staff is attentive and knowledgeable. The menu changes from time to time and we're sad not to see our favorite soup or dessert sometimes, but there's always something new we haven't tried- though we have our favorites!

This is a nice, casual restaurant with very good Spanish food, a nice surprising addition to the DC restaurant scene. It's popular but not noisy, and the service is very warm and knowledgeable - which is absolutely essential, as you will not understand many of the Spanish terms (we're not talking about burritos and enchiladas here). The only thing to note is that, similar to tapas, the plates are small (thus the surprisingly reasonable prices), even if they are called entrees. It's perfect for lunch or if you are not too hungry for dinner; otherwise, count on ordering a few courses rather than expecting just an entree to fill you. An absolute must is the crispy brussels sprouts! Everyone is surprised to hear that everyone loves them, and then they order them and understand why!
