Their food is excellent and their menu is varied. The wait on the weekend for dinner service can be long so be prepared.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

We ate a lot of tapas, veggie, fish and meat. . . about 12 among our group of three and loved them all! They had a nice flight of sherry's which are the usual pairing in Spain when eating tapas. I wished they had the appetizer bandilleros (scewered on appetizer tooth pics) but they are a little labor intensive to make. The atmosphere is really comfortable and attractive. The wait staff was very accomodating and cheerful. Looking forward to going again when we next visit the kids.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We visited San Chez with a group of about 10, Food was excellent, fresh and fast, even with our large group. Each couple ordered at least 2 items, which made for approxamately 20 items to try. It seemed as though the food was never going to stop coming out! We all left very satisfied. Definately try San Chez; and with a group if possible. More fun & variety that way.

“First time, will be back again!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

While attending the Wine, Beer and Food show, 3 of my friends and I decided to head over to San chez for dinner. It was the best meal I have had in a while. The atmosphere was fun and electric, the food superb and the wine excellent. I did not expect that in Grand Rapids as we normally he's to Chicago for this type if experience. Will definitely be back!
