“Should have sent it back”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

I went for dinner with friends. Everything was good, except for my sirloin. It was over 3/4 fat, the type of fat that you cannot chew. I should have sent it back, but did not. Hopefully if I go again, it will not happen.

“Spanish Sangria”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Been coming to Spanish Sangria for 25 years and have never been disappointed. Consistent quality, whether it's meat, seafood or veggies. Paella second to none. And, of course, the best red sangria ever.

“so disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

I visited the restaurant this past Sunday with high expectations after reading past reviews. Our bread, sangria, and soup arrived in a timely fashion, but we waited a very long time for our entrees to arrive. When they did, portions were partially cold. My friend's vegetables were ice cold and undercooked. My shrimp dish was tasty, but some of the shrimp and sauce were not warm. Because our entrees arrived so late, and the fact that we had tickets for a show we had no time left for dessert and coffee. (We arrived at 1:30 and planned to leave at 3:30). We love dining in Ironbound and were anxious to try some place new. This is the first negative experience we have had in over 10 years of visiting restaurants in Ironbound. I would love to think this was an unusual occurrence and that another visit would offer us a much improved experience.

“Great meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

5 close friends shared a most delicious meal. This means we got to taste a lot.Cod fish appetizers and garlic mushrooms were great along with Paella, Filet Mignon, and garlic chicken. The homemade chips Put it over the top! Don't forget the Sangria to round out your meal.its better than any other Spanish Restaurant I've been to.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

We ate at "Spanish Sangria" yesterday. The food was outstanding for starters we had the shrimp in garlic sauce "Cameron's al ajillo" we ordered the paella marinara which was sumptuous and had lots of shrimp etc.,
The white sangria was very good. Overall dinner was awesome. Would recommend and for sure we will return.
