I went to Alegrias on a first date. He brought me there because it was a family favorite for his family. It is one of those random little places that are tucked away in The City. Our waiter (I wish I could remember his name to give him a shout out) was charming, funny and very attentive. The tables were a little tight but that is to be expected for a hole in the wall. Tapas, as a rule, are fun food so go there if your date can have a little fun and not be too up tight about trying new things and bumping elbows with the person at the next table. The food was good but most of the dishes we tried were a little dry. I say it is worth a try!

Fun little place. We are big fans of appetizer size meals so we can try more things. We really enjoyed it here, the food was good, and it was walking distance from our hotel.

This is a small and very intimate restaurant in the Marina. It is not a very fancy first-date scene like most of the other restaurants in the neighborhood, but it has delicious food! Since it's on Lombard, it's a bit off the beaten path but definitely worth checking out. The appetizers were especially delicious. The service was very friendly.

I was pleased with the tapas at Alegrias. My friends and I got the rabbit, which was good and tender. The papas were not dry and were fried just crispy enough. The salmon was also good, soft and well-seasoned. The sangria was not all

Pros: Lots of variety, including vegetarian options

Cons: Some dishes are overpriced ($8 for mushrooms??)

Our dining experience at Alegrias was excellent. It seems that the owners of Alegrias must have read some of the negative reviews posted on Citysearch. First, parking was so easy; there is a multi-story public garage across the street.

Pros: The paella, while not the best, is much better than Picaro's or Baraka.

Cons: While some tapas taste fine, the portions and seafood sizes are unacceptable.

We celebrated a birthday party here tonight and everything was wonderful--a great venue for a group dinner. The service was very attentive and the food was authentic. Some of the dishes even rivaled my Spanish mother's specialities!

Everything I have tried here tastes great. And the best thing about tapas is that you get to try a few different dishes and enjoy as much as possible. I also highly recommend the sangria. The only real negative is the lack of attention

Lovely restaurant for a quiet date and excellent food - except that generally everything was a bit on the salty side. I wouldn't go driving miles for it but will stop by again when I'm craving tapas.

With beautiful silver mirrors, mediterranean tiles, and twinkling white lights along the walls, this restaurant has romance written all over it. The sangria is fantastic and the gambas and seafood paella are scrumptuous!

Come here for great sangria, shrimp and patatas bravas. The desert---excellent. Don't go for the atmosphere. The restaurant is in strong need of remodelling and you sense that everyone can hear your conversation.

The colorful, hand-painted ceramics, terra cotta flower boxes and bright flamenco shawls aptly reflect the warm and welcoming atmosphere of this stand-out tapas stand-by. Start out simple with a plate of escalivada, grilled eggplant,…
