Friendly staff and great food. We were so full that we had no room for dessert, but the owner insisted we try a dessert, so comped up fresh churros with fresh vanilla cream, and chocolate sauce all made in house. Ambiance is lively and fun. Beautiful decor and a great place to go with a group or a couple.

My husband and I have been to Spanglish a few times now and it's always been a great experience. This past week, my family was celebrating my sister's birthday and we decided to bring our toddler with us. I made reservations in advance and chose to go earlier than usual just because dining with a toddler could be quite challenging. When we got there, they had already set up a table for us with a booster seat which I thought was so thoughtful. Our waiter, Jonathan, was super sweet and patient with us. We were celebrating my sister's birthday and even though we didn't order dessert, Jonathan brought over a flan with a candle. Those kinds of thoughtful gestures go a long way. The food is amazing, the drinks are delicious and the service is top notch... my family and I will definitely be coming back.

Excellent food. Highlight today was the handsome owner who gave us a round of Champagne on the house because we were waiting for a table. At first we were mad because they told us 20 minutes and it took 40. Finally when we got our table food was so good and quick!

The food was nothing spectacular, my brisket was dry and a bit over cooked, description said onions and there were none in there.Drinks are definitely much better than the food.Noted that it was a Birthday celebration and no recognition on it.

The owners were lovely and the food and drinks were absolutely delicious. We had a 9:00pm reservation and didn’t get seated until about 9:40 but the manager bought as a round of drinks for waiting which was a lovely and kind gesture. The meal we definitely worth the wait! The chicken tacos and guacamole were the best I have had outside of Mexico. I will definitely be making a regular appearance there and I would recommend it to my friends and family.

Went for the first time on New Year’s Eve. Last minute reservation. They were so nice and accommodating. We had our choice of either a NYE menu or the regular menu. The food was very fresh, presented beautifully, and delicious. We left full but not weighed down. The margaritas actually had alcohol in them! The restaurant looks like it belongs in some downtown Brooklyn neighborhood. Very cute. But I think the best part was that while the staff was attentive, we never felt rushed to eat and get out. Such a nice change from so many restaurants on bell! Will definitely go again.

Spanglish is nicely decorated, though seating is tight and only stools for high tables. Guacamole is very tasty and the ceviche is very fresh. Paella, tacos and shrimp all excellent. Drinks are inventive and very tasty. Chocolate dome dessert is lots of fun and very good. Service is attentive and friendly.

Got the Mahi Mahi tacos which were decent, however to top off the night ordered a the steak tacos after and they were outrageous which solidified this place as 5 stars. Service was stellar, ambiance were nice. Only bad thing I can say about this place is don't expect to be seated in a timely fashion even with your reservation.

First at this restaurant and I must say that the place charming with the decor. We had two appetizers which were wonderful and then the paella. Our waitress was was great and the owner David came by to make sure everything was good., which it was. A must try for the balloon dessert This is s great new place for Bayside. Can’t wait to go back!!

Delicious entrees! We dined on their third day of their grand opening, I had the camarones chipotle and my husband, the skirt steak. Both were very well prepared and flavorful! You can tell someone who knows what they’re doing is in the kitchen! My only feedback, which I did speak to the owners about, was that the “shareable” guacamole appetizer was way too small for both the price and to share. They said they would take my feedback and make changes.

Spanglish is a beautiful neighborhood GEM! The food is delicious, if you know what to order.

Couple of disappointing points... the service was slow... and we were the 2nd table in the restaurant on a Friday late afternoon. There was no salsa and chips when you first come to the table -- I had to double check if this is a Mexican restaurant. We did order chips and guac. and queso fundido but did not get any chips and salsa.

We order 4 items, carne asada (delicious) comes with rice and beans, shrimp enchiladas was delicious but disappointed it did not come with rice and beans. Chicken quesadilla - good. AND Mahi Mahi tacos - fish was about 2 inch long and deep fried --- which came out last about 10 minutes after all the other dishes was on the table. Therefore, our dishes were cold by the time the tacos came out.

OVERALL it was a delicious experience. So glad its in the neighborhood. Better than the selections we have now. IT's a ticket shocker! Be ready for a big bill!
