Having been a big fan of Iberica, I was a little disappointed this time round.

The patatas bravas arrived a good ten minutes before anything else and so they were barely still warm and could not really be eaten as a "side " when the other food arrived
The asparagus on toast has always been a favourite but this time there was very little Manchego cheese on the toast which itself tasted as if it was seconds away from being burnt toast.
The burgers were up to the usual standard and the double cooked lamb was nice, even though I don't recall it having been served with cold pickled onions before.
Having looked forward to the black rice, when it arrived, it was difficult to identify anything in it other than rice.
Finally, although there appeared to be plenty of staff around, on the basis that three of them were busily engaged in conversation by the kitchen steps, it took quite a while to attract someone's attention to bring over the bill.
Verdict: On the basis of some excellent times here in the past, I'll give it another go -but if it disappoints again, it's "Adios, Iberica!"

First time at Iberica Leeds. Stunning building, friendly and even service and great food. Definitely worth going if you want a good Tapas.

Visited on Saturday with a friend. Lovely place, great ambience and service. After already selecting out choice we were told a few were unavailable, one being calamari. Very disappointing on a Saturday. Plus should have been told straight away
We ordered 5 dishes, 3/5 were good. We enjoyed the chorizo lollipop, croquettes and the lamp. The mackerel was raw and we didn’t like the sauce at all, we couldn’t eat it. The beetroot salad was pointless and very disappointing of flavour.

Potentially ordered the wrong things but I expected better from good things I’d heard. Would come back but wouldn’t rush

We have eaten here before and particularly like the bar area. Once again the bar and drinks were very good and the restaurant has a lovely welcoming atmosphere. The staff were very good - attentive and well informed. However, sadly the food just wasn't that great - really average.

Service is excellent as ever - happy to advise on food. Couldn't believe how quickly it arrived. Iberica is just great, the venue is breathtaking and very classy and it's so worth paying that little bit extra for the quality you receive in every respect in return. 10/10. I'll be back (again!)

As well as a limited menu choice if you don’t like fish, three of the dishes were unavailable. The decor is lovely. The food was not hot but was tasty. Probably won’t go again.

In the competitive tapas scene in Leeds I believe this is the best place for a special night out. The restaurant is beautiful, the service is fantastic, the food is simply incredible (as is the wine), and it's all for a very affordable price. This was my third time here and I will definitely be returning.

The food was incredible, and the restaurant itself is a lovely place to be in. The menu is very traditional spanish food, with plenty of variety. Expensive, but I felt it was worth it with how tasty the food was and how friendly the people were!

Amazing food and service. Only thing to note is they add a service charge and VAT at the end of the bill. Whilst we absolutely loved the food and service and had no issues with the bill, I do feel resteraunts have a responsibility to make their prices clear to their customers. I didn't notice anywhere that prices would be plus VAT

Food was overall beautiful but some of the dishes let down the others - the blue cheese on the half cheese and half meat platter was not to our liking and the pitu chicken was also a bit of a let down especially for the price. The pear and blue cheese salad was amazing as were the croquettes.
All the chairs were dirty and stained and the menus had spills on. Waitresses extremely friendly and helpful. Will go again soon!

Majority of food was lovely and tasty. Slightly small portions for tapas for example on meat and cheese board, but the croquettes were incredible! Expensive for what it is as I think location and interior play a big part. I would go again for the paella.

The service was fantastic and it was quite quiet, being the first group to arrive on a Saturday lunchtime. The lady looking after us was marvellous. The food was very good. We chose the most Juan Pedro Domecq ham, which was the most expensive on the menu, but it was worth it! The Calamares was excellent - we had two of those. Couldn’t fault the desserts either, but the almond cake wasn’t available, which was only a minor detail as the alternative suggested more than made up for it. The only real downsides were that the prawns were a bit “gritty”, and the lamb dish was not that warm when it arrived.

We were off to a ropey start as our table was crammed between two larger ones just where the servers emerged with food, and were nudged several times before some plates were dropped as the waiter was squeezing past. My wife’s bag was treated to some Pattaya’s bravas.

However that’s when the staff made up for the Management’s determination to have as many tables as possible as they found us a better table, cleaned up the bag and were full of apologies. They couldn’t do enough for us and it would have been churlish on our part to remove the tip from the bill (12.5% is included).

Well done the staff for retrieving what could have been a very poor outcome.

Beautiful restaurant and delicious food. Service was excellent and our server explained the menu concept to us very well. It was a little expensive in comparison to other restaurants in Leeds City Centre and the menu is quite limited but I would definitely visit again.
