Description: Thank you for your interest in Emilio’s Tapas. Emilio’s Tapas is an authentic Spanish Tapas Bar Restaurant conveniently located in West Suburban Hillside. Spanish cuisine can best be described as a mix of French and Italian influences; tapas are small dishes ideal for appetizers or when ordered in rounds build a complete meal. Our menu consists of regional Spanish specialties, original dishes created by Emilio offered in both the dining room and bar for dinner daily. The restaurant is casual with spacious dining rooms and an energetic atmosphere accentuated by colorful Spanish murals, music and tiles.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Emilio's last night. It's simply a great place where we love the ambiance, the people and the food. We tried the lamb chops, the quail and the banana dessert, and every item was excellent. Emilio stopped by to say 'hi', and I think it says a lot about a restaurant when the owner makes it a point to stop by on a busy Saturday night. Our waitress, Lisa, was lovely and helpful, and we enjoyed meeting her.

Had a great tapas meal with friends at Emilo's last night. We had been there years ago but away for too long. The place looks festive and was quite full on a Thursday night. I'm glad we had reservations! The service was friendly and professional and the food was outstanding! Everything we ordered was yummy...one of my favorite things was the stuffed dates..the pork special with carmelized onions was a stand out. Our friends go often and say they always have a good time and great food.

We were in Oak Park, and drove out to Emilio's- maybe 20 minutes away. And boy, was I glad we did.

The food is stunning- and the variety broad enough for there to be something for everyone. A couple of the specials were especially good. Beware- portions are large and 5 tapas will satisfy 2 people easily. Prices are reasonable, and the service great!
