Our waitress was nice but it look like was a busy night. Food quality is getting worse, We ordered french fries with sunnyside up eggs, pastel de batata, chickpeas salad, ham , chicken and cheese fried balls.
Not a fan of the do-it-yourself QR code method of ordering. It is impersonal, and definitely took away from the meal experience that you generally get from a JA restaurant. We will keep this in mind if it ever comes to booking Spanish Diner in Bethesda.
Was just checking out the place to see what the vibe was like and I personally didn’t like it. Didn’t feel “welcome” there and the food was bland so most likely won’t go back.
Great dining experience. Staff incredibly accommodating and friendly. Great atmosphere. Loved the gazpacho excellent croquetas for starters, main was the Bacalao which was excellent. The Tarta de queso was light and flavorful. I would return.
Rose sangria (made with gin and vermouth) was sooo good and refreshing. Great service (waiter made excellent suggestions) and the food was delicious.
The anchovy appetizer Patatas chips con boquerones is spectacular as is the bacalao con pisto entree. This is a perfect spot for a business lunch or gathering with friends. The acoustics are good for conversation.
Great restaurant! Waiter was very helpful with the menu and we loved our sangria and our meal. Service was quick !
We enjoyed the energetic atmosphere of the restaurant and the service was wonderful ! The beef stew with rice was very tasty and so were some of the
Food was incredible, quick service and a bright and airy space! Can't wait to go back.
Everything was delicious and service was super fast.
Wonderful restaurant, excellent wait staff and front of house, delicious meal. Just a bit loud, but not overbearingly so.
Lovely to sit inside right by the open wall. Ordered the ham and cheese grilled sandwich. It was really two sandwiches. Shame on me, I ate it all. Nice little green salad as a side (extra $). Very satisfying and no rushed feeling.
Food and drink orders - now done via scanning a bar code etc - felt very impersonal but everything came out within a few minutes. Servers were friendly and checked in on us.
Food was good, but I think expensive. Appreciating its Hudson Yards, I think it’s priced for where it is.
I think there are some great dishes and some not so great.
I would go back, but wouldn’t rush back.
Absolutely delicious dinner. The croquettes were incredible. Great ambiance and perfect for getting groups together. They had a promotion where you got 2 free glasses of sangria for the table if you paid with a visa card.
I love Spanish Diner. There is nothing I would change. It is a place that I go to repeatedly.
Great place for dinner with friends and family! Enjoyable experience!
great outdoor seating, friendly wait staff and great ambience - overhead fans and cross ventilation provided great shade and cool breeze on an 88 degree day
The best Spanish food in the US! Everything is so delicious!
Too many plates were out of stock
Wonderful place. Our Go To. We love it. Very recommended
The overall ambiance of this place is just superb. The choices of food and the service is outstanding. One that will remind you that you're like in Spain. It's a fascinating experience to dine in this place.
Daniel is a fantastic server and was very helpful when we wanted to order our dinner and drinks. Not easy using the menu online as there wasn't a place to order a Tito's vodka.We started with Aceitunas Marinadas Olives,Ensaladilla Rusa tuna salad,from the Spanish Diner Experience Price Fix the Jamon Serrano Ham and Queso Manchego cheese. Main course Albondigas con Patatas Pork Meatballs and Macarrones con chorizo macaroni with Pork and tomato sauce. All the food was amazing.Some Tito's and Doble Mahou Cinco Estrellas made for a great night. Thank you Jose Andres for your creative menu! We will be back
Everything was good except the food...really marginal and bland...they could do much better with the sangria..a bit more sweeter.
This restaurant is not formal. But it’s spacious with good ventilation. Food is unique, priced fairly and well done. The waitress was extremely helpful and made good recommendations. Great choice and day.
Lovely service to go with excellent food! An already go-to for me!
Totally authentic, home cooked Spanish food! Just like in Spain!
Started off not so well… our first choice of one of their classic appetizers was not available…at a 1pm lunch on a Thursday? Come on, really. Substitutes, fine tho. Cocktails and Sangria fine.
Re Spanish ‘comfort’ food entrees…chicken and steak moist and tender but the brown gravy was too heavy and smothered it, canceling out what could have been very tasty.
Service informative and very good.
Tho set back quite far from the street, a little too noisy too hear everything said between four of us with the piped in music a little too loud.
Bottom line…would I go back? Probably not. Expected better.
Can’t tell you how grateful I am to have this restaurant open throughout Covid lockdown’s. We’ve been there almost every week and will continue to do so. I also use the olive oil from there and the potato chips are the best!
Food and service were very good; not up to same quality as more upscale competitors like Boqueria, though - and no croquetas already, at 7 pm on a Tuesday? Really? Also a bit too noisy. But will definitely go back and try other dishes; cocktails very good, too.
Excellent all around. Ate outside. Highly recommend.
Amazing! I’d recommend in a heartbeat. Food, service and ambience were perfect. We celebrated my sister’s birthday and got free flowers. Service was surprisingly kind, energizing and refreshing.
Delicious! Sangria and tapas were fantastic. Must go again
Muy buena comida y ambiente. Excelente para combinar compras y cena.
This is a fantastic concept!! The food was delicious, the staff was professional and helpful! We’ll definitely be back!!
Great food but pricey!
The food tasted horrible. I couldn’t finish my meal, I just had to pay and leave. We got the cauliflower gratinada and it tasted bland. The only decent thing was the fried potatoes. The gazpacho was disgusting. The waiters don’t even check up on the guests like other restaurants. The waiters forgot to bring my drink at first, did not give me any type of response when I expressed that I did not like the food, and also gave me the wrong check at first and gave no apology. I was also supposed to get a receipt after paying which I didn’t get either. I was extremely disappointed at the food and service I received. Will not be going back.
Food is delicious; we've been back more than once for the croquetas and pollo guisado. And indoor/outdoor casual chic atmosphere and location amidst the buzz of Hudson Yards is fun. But service was rushed and overall pretty bad for our 8:45 PM reservation. Upon being seated we were informed that the kitchen was closing in 10 minutes so that we needed to get our food orders in first and immediately. And service-wise, things went downhill from there, e.g., dishes meant to be shared delivered without serving utensils -- the subsequent request for which produced no response. (If 8:45 PM is too late to provide an appropriate quality of dining, then don't take reservations for that time - or provide a warning if you do.)
The food is good. But they shouldn't accept reservations at 8:45pm and then tell you the kitchen is closing shortly after being seated. Nobody wants to be rushed when ordering or eating.
Very good food, not expensive at all. However they brought entries and main dishes together, so main dish went cold. I recommend it
Amazing place I would recommend it so much ! See yah soon
