“Sangria is delicious.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

I love eating at San Chez, but normally save for special occasions. The service is good on average, but depends on the server. It's good for a group, as long as the group isn't too large (over 6 or 8). With a group, you can try different things and even if it's not your thing, someone else will likely eat it. I like the potato empanadas and fideos. Every time I've been here, I've had the red sangria. It's delicious!!

“Amazing Spanish Tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Not for the budget conscious, but San Chez serves some of the best Spanish Tapas and food I've had. My wife and I would recommend a pitcher of the red Sangria, along with 4-5 Tapas and a dessert to share. If you like cheese, the deep fried blue cheese fritters are to die for, as well as the flour-less dark chocolate torte with raspberries and truffles.

“My kind of Place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

A unique menu in the heart of Grand Rapids. Lots of choices and it's within walking distance of downtown attractions. This is a must for groups of 4 or more.

It was my first time here. I enjoyed the site and food.

Exotic food and amazing atmosphere is where it begins. Spanish tapas style dishes in many varieties. I recommend it.
