Spanish Kitchen has good food but over and over the worst service. They are close to my work so I go there often and almost every time the service is horrible. Rude and could care less about your table. There is a red headed guy there

As a professional chef this has to rate as one of my worst experiences ever. The service was horrfic. Our server Tara was ill equipped to handle rudimentary requests. She was flustered and unable to save a quickly deteriorating situation.

Passing the antique doors of The Spanish Kitchen is like a short trip to Mexico. A fountain, wrought iron, wood furniture, leather upholstery, colored Mexican murals and tiles, a long bar, and an outdoor patio with bougainvillea…
