    OK Food, poor service

    The food is not very good, greasy, meat (I had veal) was chewy. Waiter was pushing us out as soon as we finished the meal, we got the check with dessert. I would not recommend it.

    Uber Dining Experience!

    I've been dining at this establishment for over 20 years. Things haven't changed . The gentlemen in their tuxes, occassionally singing happy birthday to someone in thier beautiful melodic bartone voices is beyond compare. The food and drink is exceptional. And they're got THE best coffee in town ! You go away with a warm full feeling and you feel like a queen/King.

    Very Very Good!

    When I walked in the door I knew I was going to enjoy this meal! The atmosphere was right out of the 1950s - white tableclothes, jacketed waiters and this was Sunday afternoon! Paul ordered a pitcher of Sangria, yum, yum, yum, whic was accompanied by a little bit of cheese and olives, fresh bread was served and we were informed of the specials. We had succulent baby squid, sauteed just right, this was followed by a white-bean soup that was incomparable, then came my seafood extravaganza in green sauce, oh my it was so very good. It was so good that I would not check my dogie-bag at the symphony's coatcheck!! Thank you for keeping these bations of good food alive and well!

    Impressed the first time

    The first time i ate here I loved it, enjoyed good tapas, sangria, and decent entree's. After that I didn't have the sangria and didn't like it nearly as much :-) I still go there once a month or so, as it is has a huge menu and some good menu options. But there are a few better places with food in the same genre.

    Great Dining Experience

    It has been many years since I Last had dinner at El Quijote, but it is still just fantastic. My Husband and I were in NYC to do some Christmas shopping over the week-end and ate Dinner here. The food was just fantastic. My husband had the 3lb Lobster it was perfect and I had the Rib-eye. We were very very happy that we decided to try this not so chic not so trendy place again. The price for food is very reasonable for NYC standards.

    Very good food/huge portions

    The portions here were huge. Get a paella and split it - my friend and I split one and had leftovers (and we are NOT light eaters.) The Sangria was also good.

    Celebrating My Birthday

    I just had to stop by and say I had a wonderful time at your place. My girl friend took me out for my birthday and we decided on going to your resturant. The food and the service was wonderful. I had your seafood and loved every bite. I felt I was catered too and that was very special. I want to thank you and your staff. Can't wait to go there again.
