    The food was delicious, propper Spanish food. The ambiance was so nice and everyone was so attentive and nice! It was also great that I could order in my native language, brownie points for that!

    Booked a table for birthday celebration at El Rincon. Unfortunately my birthday coincided with Mother's Day so only set menu was available. It would be good to know about unavailability of the a la carte menu before booking. The choice of the set menu was pretty limited, though the meals were well prepared. Quite overpriced for tiny entrees and main portions ($125 per person). The staff and service were just exceptional - friendly, professional and helpful. Might consider visiting again when a la carte menu be available

    Thank you for celebrating your birthday at El Rincon! We appreciate your feedback and apologize for not clearly communicating the set menu requirement for Mother's Day in advance. We understand that the limited options and pricing may not have met your expectations. However, we're thrilled to hear that our staff provided exceptional service and that your meals were well prepared. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again when our a la carte menu is available, and we'll do our best to provide a better value and dining experience for you.

    Was such a wonderful experience. Food was amazing, the paella was by far the best we’ve had. Food came out really quickly and service was amazing. Staff were welcoming and friendly and made the whole experience that much better. Would definitely come back again.

    Lovely little place and we really enjoyed our evening. The service was friendly and food delivered promptly. The sangria wasn’t as potent as we’ve experienced in Spain but that was our only (minor) issue. Would definitely return.

    The service was excellent. Both waiters that dealt with us were polite and knowledgeable. The wine pairing that was suggested was perfect. The food was delicious and everything was well priced. We went because we wanted to experience some authentic spanish cuisine and we got it. Thank you El Rincon!
