I had been to La Camelia once before and enjoyed a good dinner, but this time a dinner party of 8 was a big disappointment. On both first and main courses, orders were completely confused and it took a long time to get them straightened out. Two different waiters tried to serve me a sausage gratin (which no one at the table had ordered) when I had ordered an arugula salad....I felt as though I was in a Monty Python skit. When the main course rolled around 2 hours after our arrival and my friends' dishes had been sorted out, the waiter asked me, "What was it you ordered?" I would have smiled at all this as a bad night had the food been good, but my swordfish and its accompanying vegetables were smothered in an overpowering mustardy sauce, and the fish in my husband's paella was overcooked and flavorless.

Two couples enjoyed an excellent dinner on a Saturday night. La Camelia remains one of the best restaurants in the Mt Kisco area. Chef owned. Very good service. Asst tapas shared as appetizers; whl grilled baby squid, shrimp in garlic sauce, chorizo w/beans. Nice Spanish wine list with many affordable choices. Delicious hot bread. Main dishes were excellent: stuffed trout, broiled whl fish and grilled whole stuffed lobster (all on "specials" list for the evening). Very wide menu with traditional and "Nuevo" choices of Spanish cuisine. Desserts are home-made and delicious. Reservations a must on Friday/Saturday nights. The dining room to the right when you enter the restaurant is warm/bright/inviting. Look forward to returning!

This is by far my favorite restaurant in the Westchester area. Not only is the food wonderful, the service and friendliness of the owners always makes me feel at home. Don't expect an "in and out" dinner here. This is a place where everyone lingers and enjoys multiple plates accompanied by great sangria! Great for date night or for entertaining business partners. Not to miss if you are in the area.

The food is great! The appetizer of shrimp in garlic sauce is the best. I wish they would bottle the sauce! The paella is very good and they have the best white sangria. It is one of my favorite restaurants!
