I've been coming to this Spain since I was a child. Love the food and service...

I have been a patron here for years. This place is a hidden gem in NYC. The food is outstanding, the staff are genuine. If you are looking for a fancy place then don't eat here but if you want a real taste of Spain then this place is for you. Hidden in New Yorks west side on 13th street it is a place you have to try.

One of the most disappointing restaurant experiences I have ever had. From the moment we entered the restaurant, the old man who works there was abusive and rude. He sat us down in the bar area without asking, and then got angry with us when we told him we wanted to order food. He then rudely moved us to another section of the restaurant. Both him and the wait staff kept trying to push my friends and I to buy alcohol even after I informed them that I am pregnant! The food was subpar. The complimentary salad was dressed with barbecue sauce, the lamb ribs were overly salty, the mussels were too vinegary. My cocktail shrimp were not deveined! The paella was an overcooked, mushy mess. There was no toilet paper in the restroom and there was a BAR of soap to wash your hands with. So unsanitary! Don't come here unless you enjoy getting berated.

Since my first visit in 1982 through today, Spain has remained one of my favorite tucked away prizes in NYC. The cuisine reminds me of growing up in Madrid, always authentic and true to the flavors of days gone by. The decor is reflective of the theme- simple, not ornate, well presented and consistently pleasant. I recommend Spain to all, and have been for the better part of 30 years now....

What a great place! The sangria, both white and red, was the best I've ever had. Before you even look at your menu, you have bread, salad and FOUR appetizers on your table. The Paella was to die for, and very large quantities. We ordered one other dish for four people, two who are big eaters, and we had food left over. Can't wait to eat here again.

way back in the 80s i was brought to this restaurant by a friend and I was delighted with the food- the appetizers were on the house: a large plate of salted grilled ribs and salad. we had zarzuela de mariscos - a seafood medley among other things but what I remember most was the polite service and respect the establishment had for the staff. when the dinner crowd left they all sat down and ate family style at the next table

So, Spain marches on....maybe they've added a restaurant review from the last decade to the glass showcase (time capsule?) on the sidewalk....but inside it remains the same (except possibly a bit of new paint in the back dining room?). Last night's dinner was terrific......the service is always very pleasant and accommodating (be sure to request the meatballs in addition to the usual appetizers placed on your table as soon as you sit down). I know enough to order sangria together with a shot or two of some alcohol to pour into the pitcher to give it a some oomph....
