    This place is Old School

    Its been awhile, but I've eaten here regularly for many years. This place is old school. The waiters are older and dressed in the traditional style. They are very good at service. The food is superb. To this day, I remember twin veal chops in a green peppercorn sauce that was truly outstanding. I think this place delivers real value and charm. I would recommend it to anyone.

    I'd give it another try

    So let me preface this review saying that I've only been here once... I came really late.... I wanted paella... I've only had paella once before and it was in Spain. I found the paella to be overly salty. While I've only had paella once before, I think I can tell if something is too salty. The seafood was cooked well in it as was the rice... it was just a bit too salty which kinda ruined it for me. My boyfriend had the churrsasco which was huge and was very good. We also shared calamari a la plancha as an appetizer and it was EXCELLENT! I'd go back for the calamari and the steak! I'll go back... give it another try. Oh, and the sangria was pretty good too. And they are open late which is a plus.

    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.
