Tablao wine bar & Restaurant
Last outing pre Corona shut down. Despite being 1 of 3 tables on a Saturday night, staff was was cheerful and engaging.
Consistently very good. Great staff!
Very enjoyable. Excellent food, attentive service.
Service was attentive and food delicious
New to Ridgefield and checking different restaurants. Really happy with the food and cocktails. Just wish the prices were a little lower.
Great paella and wine for a fantastic Valentine’s Day dinner. The service was excellent. The waiter, Andreas was very good.
Out for my wife’s Birthday Had a delicious meal and the staff was very nice and friendly
The hostess was a little confused, but the food was excellent and that is what I eat
Great atmosphere and a great place to meet with friends and hangout.
Paella in big portion but tasty
People nice, atmosphere lacking and service was slow with some items arriving cold
Octopus not good
Pricing very expensive for less than generous portions
The food was good. Entree Steaks were excellent and so was the shrimp chickpea tapas. The arugula pear goat cheese salad wasn’t worth it - almond size piece of goat cheese and pears were hard to find. Cheese croquets were underwhelming. Hanger steak tapas was cold and very tough. They forgot to send us a waiter/waitress. Sat for 15-20 min until they came. We did like the atmosphere and bar area looked good too. Just have yo order the right thing.
First time in this new restaurant at Ridgefield. Seafood paella was outstanding. Good selection of wines. Nice ambiance and decoration. good service
The food was awesome and paella was terrific and the service was great! We will be back
This place is a gem. Two of us stopped here before the Capitol Steps show at the Ridgefield Playhouse on 11/8, and found a restaurant buzzing with a charming warm, low glow. I have always liked the fare and wine at the several Barcelona restaurants in Ct. and was pleasantly surprised that every tapas plate we ordered was even better than a similar offering any tapas restaurant at which I have dined. The shrimps were sparkling and succulent; the steak slices tender and flavorful; and the broccoli rabe fresh, hot, and cooked perfectly. A recommended wine prompted me to order a second glass. Four small plates and 3 glasses of wine totalled $98 with tax and a generous tip. Can't wait to go back to this one!
Excellent food and a lovely atmosphere
It is difficult for a handicapped person to access this restaurant.
The food was VERY good, as was everything.
This is a really nice place and we’ll go there again very soon.
You should, too.
Wonderful meal. Felt like I was back in Spain!
This is one of the best paella’s I’ve had outside of Spain. The tapas are good and the sangria is excellent also,
. It’s a deal from 3-6 when all the tapas are 1/2 price- what a deal. The owners are super friendly too.
Friends who live in Jersey always add takeout from here since it’s so good.
the best new restaurant in ridgefield a town that needs some high quality food and service-tablao delivers both-wave eaten here many times over the padt few months and every time it delivers in both food and exceptional service
Ah Tablao. I wanted so badly to love you but you make it so hard! The paella is really really good. The service is absolutely terrible. We came here as our one date night a month away from our infant son, and it was kind of a bummer. Firstly, it took about 15 minutes after being seated until we even saw a waiter let along got water. Once the waiter appeared, he must have been the only one working because he was tending to literally every other table apart from ours. He rushed us through ordering, and never returned to ask if everything was okay or if we wanted another drink. Instead, he proceeded to eyeball a table of four women, and sit down and flirt with them while he took their order. At this point, we’d ordered the check and basically had to chase him to give him our card because we had to get home to relieve our babysitter. The waiter could care less about the patrons. He was far too preoccupied with the table of women. $100 later, we sadly won’t be returning even though we’d love to have that paella again.
good food, ok service. Also, very loud, so much so it's hard to hear people at your own table.
This was my second time visiting this restaurant and I will definitely return (even though it's about a 45-minute drive from home). The tapas menu especially is very interesting with lots of great choices (including for non-meat eaters). The wait staff is friendly and helpful. The ambience is lively and fun. The food was delicious -- best to go with several other people so you can try many tapas dishes. The 4 of us each ordered different desserts -- and all 4 were delicious!
my wife and i and friends have eaten here several times over the last month and each time it reaches such high culinary heights-the tapas menu is extensive and creative plus really delicious--dont miss the fried calamari, grilled shrimp, fried artichokes and short rib-our favorite main course is the seafood stew with an amazing broth--you can tell we love this restaurant along with the quality staff
A little pricey
my wife and i and friends have eaten here several times and each time the experience is the best. The tapas are wonderful creative large potions and delicious as are the main courses especially the fish stew that is so loaded with fish and has a wonderful broth--deserts are also great. Service is friendly professional
we love tis restaurant best in ridgefield by far--parking is easy too
It started slowly after we got water. We waited at least 15+ minutes until anyone took a drink order, only after we flagged them down. After that, the service was friendly and timely. The food was very well prepared and Well presented and sooo tasty.
Food was excellent. Service was fine but could improve; hostess not entirely welcoming, took far too long to receive the bill then to have it retrieved for processing leaving me to wonder if the gentleman standing with a full view of the floor from his spot in the middle of the restaurant had an actual purpose/responsibility.
Staff is excellent!
Great place to hang out and then order small plates of really good food. Enjoy the atmosphere, wait staff was good.
Had high expectations, based on their sono location, but seafood paella was bland and dry. The lobster was not fully cooked, chicken was over cooked. Tapas selections were better.
Very nice people. Something to be said for food coming to the table piping hot.
Overall experience was very good to excellent. Food was outstanding. Reservation was ready and we were seated promptly. Food delivery needs to be more measured, adjusting to the table. Everything was brought too quickly. Gallo was attentive and very helpful. I will be back!
Menu was great! Lots of fish which you can hardly find on a menu besides salmon ... service was good.
Great experience. Had a reservation and was seated promptly. Waiter Andres was lively and the food was quite good. Need a bigger table, however for all the small plates. We’ll be back.
First time I will give them a second opportunity. Time will tell
Nice to have a tapas place in town. Will be back. Love that they take reservations.
I chose Tablao for my husband’s birthday because it was well-review in Norwalk. It only recently opened in Ridgefield but the reviews were also very good. If I were to rate it solely on the basis of the food I would rate it equal to the best restaurants in Ridgefield. The food was well prepared and well presented. My criticism relates to the service and atmosphere. Although very pleasant, the waitstaff seemed inexperienced. The service was awkward and not well timed. The atmosphere was very noisy despite the fact that it is not a large room and it was only three quarters full. It is adjoined by a long narrow bar area which may account for some of the noise level but the floors are bare wood and there is no sound proofing on the ceiling. Prices are typical for this area but drinks were on the high side.
Food as great as it is in the Norwalk location!
