Albarino had excellent food and service but was quite noisy. We asked for a quieter table, but none was offered. We enjoyed our dinner but a quiet table would have been nice.

Food great. Service excellent. Sticker shock when bill presented. 2 tapas plates each, 2 glasses of wine, 2 coffees and 1 shared dessert = $100. before tip.

Really enjoyed everything but would only suggest the music to be more related to the menu and atmosphere. Would have been nice to hear Latin, Spanish music. But this is so minimal with the wonderful experience we had. Cocktails, amazing!

Absolutely the best tapas I've had outside of Spain. Way more items than the usual jamon y queso. Saturday night was crowded and a bit noisey, but that's to be expected. The draft beer and glasses of wine were undersized for the price. Overall though, I'd have to say the restaurant is great. Definitely going back.

All the dishes were delicious - thoughtful, interesting, unusual and of course tasty. We really enjoy going there and would go more often if we didn't live far away.

The food was very creative and tasty and definitely the highlight of the night. Unfortunately the Spanish red wine was served ice cold. Not sure why it was served at this temperature but it’s disappointing that something so basic was wrong when it’s $12 a glass. We ordered a selection of 4 tapas that were very good, but the pace of service was questionable. The first came within 5 minutes of ordering, but then the next one took another 15 minutes. That was followed by another 15 minute wait for the last two that were served together. Maybe a busy Saturday evening was the reason for the wait, but it would be nice to hear a couple words from the server to explain.

Good tapas restaurant. We've been here before, and the food did not disappoint. There was a problem with the timing of the service, all the dishes were brought at once, instead of pacing them. Management came over, resolved the problem, and picked up the cost for one of the dishes. Despite the problem, we were happy with the resolution and we will return. Good varied wine list, heavy on Spanish wines (that's a positive) with prices for all budgets.

Albarino was one of my favorite restaurants. I was excited to take my fiancé there for his first time to try some of my favorite tapas. Once the menu came, I was immensely disappointed. I had to ask why the menu was different and was then told they ran out of food from their Valentine’s Day dinner the night before. A restaurant should be prepared for this or at least notify their patrons of the change and VERY limited menu in advance.

We were there the day after Valentines Day, at 4:30, & the place was pretty empty. Our waitress, Brittany, took 10 minutes to come to our table, took our drink order, which took almost 25 minutes to finally arrive. Two of our apps came out about 10 minutes later & it took at least another 30 minutes to get our next & last dish. The service was awful & next time we go, which we will because we love the food, we’ll ask for a different server.

We made a last minute reservation for Valentines Day, so I was thrilled they accommodated us. It was a price fixed 4 course menu for Valentines Day. The menu choices were excellent and most of them were gluten-free (my wife has Celiac Disease, so this was very important to us). Our table wasn’t quite ready at our reservation time, but one of the managers was very gracious and bought us a round of cocktails for the inconvenience. All courses were served promptly by friendly wait staff. The restaurant space was vibrant and energetic. This was a great dinner out with my wife - we will definitely be back!

Great food and service but we were seated right in the middle of the bar area next to the bar and it was very loud. We asked to sit in the dining room but were told it was reserved even though we had a reservation

The food and excellent service saved the evening

This place was amazing. Decor was warm and inviting. modernly updated yet simple and chic. Food was perfect, some of the best paella I’ve ever had with seriously fresh seafood. Truly an all around perfect place.

Great dining experience and the tapas menu was sophisticated and delicious. We plan on going back often. The portions were a bit on the small size depending on what item you ordered for the price point, but worth it. We ordered five tapas selections plus one dessert and that was enough to satisfy two people. I ordered a specific drink from the bar that wasn't on the menu and it was very good. The wait staff was prompt and attentive.

Waitress did not write down our order and had to come back a couple of times to repeat the order. She ended up forgetting one of the tapas ordered and never apologized. Filet was very undercooked, was taken back and recooked.

This was for my husbands birthday. We arrived during a snowy evening, with reservations.
The seating was in the dining room near the kitchen, it was cold and bare. The servers answer to any question we had about the menu and the drink menu was “i don’t know”.. not once did she offer to go find out the answer for us. She was rushy and didn’t return often. We were recommended by friends and coworkers, returned to tell them
It wasn’t worthy of a return.

The cheese and charcuterie board was very good with ample options. Everything else was bland. Ceaser salad was watery -no flavor. Food did not come out in a timely manner. We had to ask where my daughter entree was an hour an a half into the meal. Wait staff was light and appeared disorganized. I would only return for a glass of wine and a cheeseboard.

Service was awful . The food way over priced . The empanadas tapas were a joke for the Spanish people. I am Spanish and gourmet has no place for that dish do it right and don’t cheap out and then over charge the customer. One and done will never go back .
