    I was visiting my daughter and we went to cafe Madrid based on a recommendation from her Airbnb host. They raved about it and we decided to give it a try. We loved everything about it…the food, the service, the beauty of the restaurant itself. We went with the Tapas menu, and the food was incredible! We especially loved the shrimp in crème sauce and the octopus dish, but they were all fantastic! We also had the sangria and 2 desserts. If I am back in the area again, I will definitely be headed to Cafe Madrid again!

    We've been customers for 20 years. Despite a number of reviews stating the food and experience has decreased, we once again had an exceptional time. The Bull's Eye's are not to be missed. Carlos, our waiter, did an excellent job of recommending new tapas and was friendly and professional.

    We had a party of 5 at Cafe Madrid, Friday evening 8/26. Our server was Ebony, who could not have been better. All 5 of us had a different entree' after 2 orders of Calamare, that was delicious. All of the entree's were delicious. I had the Lamb Shank and it was incredible: flavorful and tender. My only qualm was that our dinner was pretty pricy. But as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. And that was very true in this case. I would highly recommend Cafe Madrid.

    The food is great but the service was poor. We ordered tapas and salad — excellent flavors. But the wait staff promised more rolls, then didn’t bring them until we reminded them a couple of times, didn’t promptly refill water, didn’t ask for the order from one member of our party, etc etc. I recommended this restaurant to my friends because of the excellent experience I had there is the past, but my friends told me they would never want to go back there because of the service. I felt embarrassed.

    Everything was awesome! We had Crema de Langosta, Albondigas caseras, Bacalao en Salsa de Gambas and they were nice to make a small salad and mashed potatoes for sides, and also some pasta with cheese for the small one who did not want anything from the menu. The desserts were the Bizcocho Borracho and the Creme Brulee Cake. Oh and a pitcher of Red Sangria. Everything tasted so good and the service was excellent. The only complaint is that the website needs to update prices and same with the dessert menu, and also they are not doing any of the specials advertised online. We are repeat customers for years and will come back. One of the best restaurants in town. Totally worth what you spend!

    We had our ten year anniversary dinner at cafe Madrid. This was the first time visiting for us and we loved the environment and the service. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for a quiet place to sit and enjoy the company they come with and not to much worries from the servers but still creating a great ambiance.

    Poor front of house management. Chaos in the waiting area with noone performing reception. Several disgruntled patrons left after their meals being chased by servers for not leaving tips. Left without being seated after waiting 20 minutes with no contact from host.

    They did not have our reservation ready, and after we waited for an hour to be seated they didn't have the meal we had made in the reservation (they had an option to reserve specifically). We even called the day before to make sure everything was in order and ready for us and they had said yes. It made for a lousy Mother's Day experience.

    The tables nearest me had three different languages being spoken. It felt like I was back in Spain eating with family. I was sad I couldn’t find Pan con tomate and anchovies on the menu but what I did find on the menu was made beautifully.
