Sub-par food, forgettable experience!!! – I was so excited to check out a new tapas place and I left greatly disappointed. Did not taste like authentic Spanish tapas to me!!! The place looks rundown and dirty and the food wasn't much better. DON'T get the crab croquettes- yuck. Poor ambience, food and experience!
Authentic Tapas – I can understand some of the not so favorable reviews in here because it's Southern California. People would rather dine at a "Disneyland" restaurant rather then eating at a place with character and authentic food. Yes, the place could use a bit of cleaning, but the food is spot on.
I got sick – Don't go here! The food is awful and the owner is a jerk.
Nothing to do with Spain and Tapas! – After reading favorable comments on Citisearch, we decided to dine at TapasBar&Grill last night. We're EXTREMELY disappointed! A ridiculous restaurant: the food has NOTHING TO DO with real Tapas. Wow, a Citisearch rating 8.6 out of 10! It is not the first time we trusted Citisearch reviews, and it ended up being a big lie. Perhaps a restaurant employee subscribed & wrote a favorable review. The place is stinky, raunchy, heavy 80s colors; dirty dusty draperies were hanging everywhere. Table cloth was full of crums & stains from previous party. Bread with peppered mayonaise was initial 'appetizer'. The food tasted like frozen, microwaved, directly from Vons freezer. Heavy greasy sauces covered most item. Terrible! We ended up paying 52 dollars for 2, and couldn't eat anything. Spainish dancers left at 9PM, and the flamenco music was replaced with disco. Overall, the worst place we ever visited.
you won't see me there any time soon – service was slow, forgot half our order, and practically had to wave a flag to get their attention. paella was good but other "authentic spanish" dishes tasted more like mexican food. chairs are stiff as boards. live flamenco show was great and so was the live music.
