Nice place. First time I've been - went to meet up with a friend for a catch up. Quite big but managed to avoid feeling impersonal. Nice food, good drinks and decent service. Would go again.

Food Is great quality - all very fresh & hot. Did wait quite a long time for different dishes so last one, we had to eat by itself. Service was really good & overall a lovely restaurant. Good value for money.

Great cocktails with excellent service. Relatively high price for tapas but well worth it for a special occasion.

Good place for a break from the hustle and bustle of Saturday shoppers.
Food was quick and tasty.
Not made aware of any specials that could have added greater variety to the menu for veggies.
Black rice and asparagus toast were the highlights.

My son’s favourite restaurant in Manchester and we too loved it. 12 different tapas between 4 of us. All were delicious. Staff very friendly and efficient. Lovely ambience. Have bought vouchers from here for gifts for family and friends. Loved the wine too.

We were early Saturday evening, on the pre-theatre menu, which whilst good value - included some strange options. We were seated upstairs where it was quite quiet - perhaps because we had pre-booked? If I went again I would sit in the bar area and order off the a la carte menu - the bar had a buzz, and everyone else's food looked great - just not mine.

We went on this meal as a leaving meal for a colleague and as we work in Spinningfields this was close by. No negative comments to make we were all impressed with this from the minute we walked in to the minute we left, the service and food were excellent.

Ok food and great waiter. My only gripe (and it is minor) were the chairs. They were so low down, it was almost uncomfortable to maintain a conversation with the person opposite who was significantly higher up.

Wow, the food and service was amazing at Iberica. We ordered 12 dishes between 4 people and everydish was delicious! We didn't know the chef was a 2 michellin * , so this was a bonus. Our waiter Salva was brilliant, so friendly and knowledgement about the food and the region that it was most popular. Great night, we will return.

The portion sizes appear to have dramatically reduced since our several past visits where we have always enjoyed it. The prices for the quantity of each dish is appauling so much so that we won’t be returning in a hurry. The wine waiter was fantastic very knowledgable and helpful.

We were initially seated in a walkway in front of the bar with about 12 inches between the back of the chair and the bar - I am sure that is a health and safety issue. We asked to move and were accommodated. There were 3 of us and we ordered the paella which is £15 pp. There was not a lot of food. We felt like we were being moved on and after the 5th ask of 'do you need anything, shout me when you want the bill' we discovered we'd been served paella for 2!! Not a great experience considering the huge cost and hardly any food. We went on and ate elsewhere! Not the birthday I was looking forward to. Ruined the night.

We went on a dinner date at Iberica on a Friday evening; it was pretty quiet when we got there (table was booked for 7.30pm), and then it gradually started to fill up - yet it never got too noisy. The food was excellent quality and quantity, with plenty of items to choose from, be it cheeses, jamons, classic tapas or chef's specialties. We mixed and matched several of them and had a very filling dinner with lots of flavours.

Dishes we tried: Artisan cheese selection, Calamares, Chorizo lollipops, Vermouth mussels (yummy!), Artichoke hearts (loved them), Trío de Jamones, Toasted bread with tomato.

The decor is airy and cozy, the staff was super nice, explaining each section of the menu and offering helpful recommendations, and we left feeling full and happy and very well treated. We'll be back!

Went with friends to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary as the weather was lovely we ate outside on the terrace which was lovely
Our waiter was Pepe who was attentive without being intrusive and made some helpful suggestions regarding the menu as well
Although the restaurant was very busy - England had just beaten Sweden- nothing was rushed and we kept our table all evening
We have eaten at Iberica several times before both privately and on business and it always exceeds our expectations
Would recommend to anyone who enjoys good tapas and a laid back evening

Albeit we turned up late so it may not have been the best time to go, we didn’t get any menus on arrival and one of the dishes was wrong when it was brought. The food was of a reasonable standard but really not what we were expecting. We were looking forward to it and left a bit underwhelmed.

Excellent evening. Took my parents who had never had tapas before and they loved it. Great gin too!! Would definitely recommend.
Only downside was the table I had was upstairs and I am a wheelchair user so difficult for me to go up the stairs.
Thanks for a lovely evening!!

First time here. All food was at least good and portions are generous. Wine list is for those who want to explore Spain - We didn’t recognize any but enjoyed the one that was suggested. Great server. Appreciate the outdoor dining area though it was just a bit warm for me.

Service very good but truthfully the foid was mediocre- small portions, chorizo was tough and very salted, twice cooked lamb flabby, tomato bread incredibly salty. £80 for 2, 5 dishes to share and a moderate bottle of wine. Not great value but staff were great

Overall this was a huge disappointment.
The drinks service was slow and disjointed. I had to ask three times for my beer after my wife had received her glass of wine.
The tapas was of marginal quality. Bocquerones were dry, the squid swamped in batter, the hake cold and undercooked. The waitress forgot the chorizo and then argued that I had not ordered any. There was no recompense for any of this.
Altogether the worst of a chain restaurant experience. A little like a Spanish equivalent of a poor Toby carvery and that’s being unkind to the carvery..

First time at Iberica and i will certainly return.
Restaurant has a fresh modern vibe to it which in my opinion only adds to your experience.
The food was beautiful and flavoursome. Exquisite tapas. Only critique i have on food is regarding the cooking of meatballs to medium. 1. This was not stated before ordering. 2. Minced meat isnt the same as a cut of meat and should be cooked through. This was rectified by the very attentive staff and without a moments hesitation the price was removed from my bill. A very happy customer and I will definitely return.
