    Holiday prices?

    I have been going to this restaurant for years..just came home from a Mothers Day dinner and was SHOCKED that a note was included on the menu ..saying prices are higher today because of "the holiday". Won't be going back to soon!

    Mother's Day Disaster!

    Have eaten here for many years. Tonight we were seven for Mother's Day. What a surprise to see a printed note inside the menu advising diners that they might notice an increase in prices, HOWEVER, the increase would only be for Mother's Day. Service was poor, dirty dishes left all over the table. Beware of holiday price increases.

    average fish and shrimp

    Went to El Quijote for the first time and was not impressed. I had the broiled grouper, which was a very lafge piece of fish, but it was a little bland and slightly overcooked. My coworked had the fried shrimp, which were good but small and average. Service was good and atmosphere is nice. Coat check is nice also.

    Down Home Spain!

    The food is so good that after repeated visits to El Quijote, My husband and I decided that this was the perfect venue to host my daughter's First Communion party on May 17, 2008. All of our 54 guests still talk about the great tasting food, the gigantic portions,the excellent Sangria and the great service and those who were unable to attend expressed their regret when they heard about the food. Jose ,the manager, went totally out of his way to accomodate us. The wait staff, especially Cristian, handled the entire affair with charm and grace. El Quijote is also the preferred spot for my college group to meet and my family's favorite place to eat. Gracias to the staff of El Quijote !

    Old school excellence...

    Thats what youre getting here! The decor isnt great...still the same lands cape paintings from the 80s and the floors need work BUT the staff is professional, and nice AND the food is great!..and consistent. If youre not afraid to experience old school and dont need to overspend to feel like youre having a great meal, check it out. The daily double lobster special is incredible and comes w/ enough sides and soup/salad to satisfy anyone.

    plastic tapas

    We love tapas, and decided to try this place out. Called to learn that the reservation wasnt needed. When we came to the place we were immediately seated at a nice table. There's lots of room inside and the decor is interesting. The crowed was of the mixed type. The service in the place is excellent. The waiters know their job well. Unfortunately the food we ordered was a huge disappointment. The moment the bread arrived it became clear it wasnt going to be one of the memorable experiences. This didn't fully prepare us for the tapas (we ordered stuffed mushrooms, garlic shrimps and octopus) though they literally tasted like plastic. Very heavy souce, and overkooked. Reminded me very much of the food served in the country Italian places somewhere in the surburbs. Obviously, we wont be coming back

    Great Date

    Big fan. Jose the GM is alway accomedating and the food is awesome... While away for about a year and a half, my first stop was the restaurant for its amazing stuffed lobster tails. This has been my favorite since one of my first dates took me there for a great meal and date. You will not go wrong, just remember to plan ahead and make a reservation first. Always packed in the fall and winter.
