Gracias for your kind comments and great rating!
We go to Emillios often. We love the food and the Sangria. We decided to try entrees we have not had before, a grilled artichoke dish that was great and a meatball special in a lovely sauce with forbidden rice. The portions were large enough that we didn’t need to eat any more, so we will be back soon ....
Love this! Don't wait to come back too long! gracias for your rating....
Exceptional food, great service, Emilio, Ann Marie, and staff always knock it out of the ball park!
Gracias, gracias and gracias! we so appreciate your kind words....

It was my first time dining at the restaurant. Everything was outstanding. the was really good. I will return in the near future. !!!!
Gracias gracias and gracias! We are so happy you shared a Saturday night with us!
Superb food. The service as well was really great. Our waitress/server Martha was very nice and helpful. They have an extensive menu of cold and hot tapas as well as a wine and cocktails menu and of course paella’s! When we went around 8pm on a Friday they had live music and there were couples dancing. It was a great time. In the summer they also have outdoor seating. Their parking lot was a little small but not impossible to find a spot. For 2 of us we ordered 5 tapas and a lot of leftovers that we were happy to take home! I hope you love and enjoy Emilio’s as much as we do!
Gracias for your rating and feed back! We really appreciate your comments about Martha, our Friday night music and our menu, bar and cocktails. We hope you'll join us again soon.

Gracias gracias and gracias! Thank you for letting others know that we have many GF and vegetarian options!
Always reliable, high quality food. Prices seem to have risen a bit, but not unreasonable.

Gracias for your rating and feed back! My favs too!
Everything was good! But I saw an accident with a waiter than I hope 🤞🏼 he hasn’t had any consequence about that because many times they don’t have fault 🤭🤭🤭
Humm....if your referring to the host assistant separating tables in the east room, no....its an accident. No one would break dishes and glasses on purpose. He is shy and felt badly but all is well. Thank you for your concern...how nice! Thanks for your 5* rating.
The seating was very close and at first I was uncomfortable but we started up a conversation with the couple next to us and compared food selections and if was nice. The food was good. The calamari was very chewy and was disappointing but everything else was tasty. Overall the experience was enjoyable.
Hola Cathy.... I'm sorry your calamari was chewey....i hope you mentioned this to your server so they could replace the dish. Thank you for your review.
My husband and I went with my sister and brother in law to celebrate Valentine’s Day. We all love the small plates to share and the sangrias, both white and red. Our server Anna was fantastic! Never rushed us, but was very accommodating and attentive. She has a great personality, we wound up being there for 3 wonderful hours. Will definitely be back!
Gracias for your rating and comments! I will show Anna your review...she will be thrilled!
Great service but for me the 3 plates I shared with my wife were more like small appetizers instead of the main dishes. Although the food was good at the end I wasn’t full.
Our server was attentive & cheerful. Our meal selections were very good. Interesting & unusual in some ways. Very good experience overall. The noise level was higher than I'd prefer but was to be expected on a special occasion evening such as Valentine's Day. We will be back soon!
Gracias gracias and gracias! Thank you for your review!
Excellent food. The live singer which made for a fun atmosphere, but it was also a little loud and hard to have an engaging conversation. Otherwise, it was great!
Gracias for your rating and feed back.....i appreciate it.
Everything was excellent, from the food, service, ambiance. My wife and I had a wonderful Valentine’s Day celebration. Will definitely be back in the future as always. Great job Emilio.

It is clear that Chef Emilio has quality food as his top priority at his eponymous restaurant in Hillside. Add to that the charming Spanish decor and you are guaranteed to enjoy your dining experience here. Everything is homemade and does not disappoint. The hardest thing is deciding what to get from the tempting menu, but since it’s tapas style designed to be shared with your fellow guests, you can easily enjoy a bit of this and bit of that. Don’t miss the outstanding authentic flan!
Gracias for your rating and feed back, it's very much appreciated. Chef's passion has not waned in over 32 years here in Hillside. He just loves his job of creating and making guests happy with his creations. Gracias!
My second visit and will be back. Delicious authentic food, attentive service and lovely ambience. I lived in Spain for 2 years and this helps me when I’m missing Sevilla and Madrid!
