    Great food

    Very happy with the service and food. Huge menu which makes it hard to decide. We had a group of five with us and everyone was very pleased with what they gotten. I personally had the surf and turf. The fillet was great. I do recommend this place!

    one of NY's best

    Way, way better than some of the overhyped restaurants like Il Mulino where you get mediocre food thrown at you by rude waiters and then more or less pushed out the door. At El Quijote, you have to push your way IN, because the value and high quality of the food are unsurpassed. I advise the paella, but my wife always gets the two enormous filet mignons and takes one home to eat the next day. Courteous, attentive service. At least a 30 on Zagat (which unfortunately loves the snob appeal of restaurants where you have to be a celeb like Tim and Nina to be treated well.)

    Missing lobster bit

    My College buddy mother were in town. I wanted to treat her to dinner. The food was wonderful, the service, and price was affordable. Unaware my buddy is a frequent customer. Nevertheless, we all agreeed on seafood paella. Of course, of the three of us. I am the only non fluent spanish speaking at that table. Our food were portoion out . I noticed with the exception of myself. My buddy and his mom were given healthy protion with their meatty lobster and i the tale of the lobster. I then said to myself perhaps i am the smalles in size and not hispanic decent. I do get the meatty part. However, i noticed on our table in the pot of food there were a lobster. I requested the remaing be packed in a doggie bag. The next day i deceided to bring it to work . I had another lobster tale, and some other seafood, and a lot of yellow rice. I am yet to see or eat lobster. I was the one whom invited the idea, but i felt quite unhappy instead afterall. To bad i do not have a dog at home which eats table foods.

    Excellent Food! Large Portions

    The food is delicious! A bit pricey, but worth every bit of it... Decor is a bit tacky, can get noisy. They try to give it a romantic feel, and it may work for some, if you don't mind the noise from the bar or the loud patrons. The food is great!

    OK food but good service

    Went here with friends from outta town, thought it'd be fun. The sangria is great. Service was attentive. Mussels in green sauce was pretty good. Atmosphere was nice with ambiance. Food was just ok. The prime rib steak is huge and cooked as we asked for and considerably well price for its size, but it was not tasty, it was fatty and chewy. We ordered paella lobster, a good deal considering the whole lobster came with the dish but rice was really salty and the seafood was just ok, salty and steamed. The paella valencia had meats that were tough and chewy. Friends ordered the short ribs that were really tough and chewy. The scallop dish was descent not great. The thing that is great here is that with a group of 8, we were able to linger a bit after the meal--no rushing us out which was nice. Not sure if this is what spanish food supposed to taste like. Overall, all foods were pretty salty. If this is what you like, then its the place for you.
