    The closest thing to eating at your (amazingly talented) friend's home. Try the tapas, or paella on Wednesdays, & ask your server to recommend a different Sherry for each dish, esp if you're a novice

    In a bold departure from juniper-heavy gin & tonics, the gintonic here combines Old Raj gin, which has a tinge of saffron, with house-made tonic, infused with oranges, thyme and bitter bay leaf. Read more

    The best tapas I've had in DC. Their pork belly is amazingly tasty and flavorful. Another must try- tortilla de patatas, croquetas and chorizo. The most authentic and best quality tapas I've had in ye

    Highly recommend sitting by the kitchen to watch the chefs in action. Definitely try the homemade G&T's, tortilla espanola and sautéed shrimps.Waiters are super friendly and knowledgable.

    Plan ahead to avoid long waits at this super popular tapas spot. Make sure to get the roast corn during the warm months and the crispy brussel sprouts in the off season.

    Pork belly sandwiches are mind blowing. Bring your own wine - Steak entree and sautéed kale were amazing! Try to get seat near windows to watch craziness of DC walk by! Manchego cheesecake - yum.

    Cocktails are fantastic - expect to have to wait outside for 30 minutes or so, drive they don't take reservations unless you're party is 6 or larger. Worth the wait. Scallops are to die for.

    Escalivada sandwich so good we ordered it twice. Brussels sprouts and crispy cod close runner ups, plus the armpit sweet quince jam cheesecake, and elderflower mixed drinks! Pricey but incredible.

    Arrive by 6p if you don't have a reservation (and they only take reservations for 6+ after 6p) to beat the crowd. The chilled tomato gazpacho and hanger steak are excellent choices.

    Basque tapas, charcuterie, and other small plates with a bar menu that includes traditional ciders, sherry cocktails, and a bevy of other Spanish beverages.

    Go here for the phenomenal food, but drinks program is no slouch thanks to Adam Bernbach. Great g&t made w/ Old Raj gin + housemade tonic; saffron hints in Old Raj are good call for a Spanish place.

    Excellent! But come with a heavy wallet and be prepared to spend. Everything meticulously prepared and seasoned. Loud. Small parties. Dinner only. No reservations.

    After moving from Spain (Barcelona) I was a little bit worried about moving to Washington DC but this restaurant makes me feel back home :D If you a chance sit right by the kitchen, its more fun!

    An ode to tapas in a chic, loftlike space. The roasted shishito peppers and the montadito (a Spanish open-faced sandwich) of duck and foie gras are menu highlights.

    A seat at bar watching the prep is fun. But a warning: you will have a thin layer of cooking oil all over if you're too close! I enjoyed everything - just shouldn't have worn something dry clean only!

    IMO the best tapas in D.C. I've been several times but brunch is probably my favorite. GoTos include the smoked salmon bocadillo, chorizo hash, and slow roasted pork. Enjoy!

    Sauteed shrimp and mussels w/ chorizo are a must...so is the braised bacon! Make sure to have a Tecolate if you're looking for a strong but fresh cocktail.

    Drink up. Estadio's gin and tonic, aka the Gintonic, showcases the drink's Spanish twist. They couple Old Raj gin or Tanqueray No. 10 with house-made orange-flower tonic.

    Brunch is amazing for all different tastes on the menu. Have a mojito to top it off. Decor really symbolizes the Spanish culture.

    It smells like Barcelona up in here! Don't miss the blue crab jalapeno toast, patatas bravas, shrimp, and chargrilled scallions. Oh and hello, rosemary-infused tequila.

    Better than Jaleo and cheaper! The pintxos, gazpacho and pan con tomate are amazing. Don't forget to save room for the awesome manchego cheesecake at the end!

    Beet goat cheese sandwich is a must. Papayas bravas were tasty. Next time Try tortilla espanola, foie gras sandwich, spicy chix, and crispy pork belly.

    Hanger steak, duck, fried cod, and brussels sprouts were my favorites. Be careful - your bill can add up quickly with all these yummy small plates!

    Everything I had was delicious. I would say the pistachio slushy and brussels sprouts are not to be missed. Sitting at the kitchen bar was fun.

    True to its name, this Spanish retreat in Logan Circle can be noisy as a "stadium" at full tilt. But good small plates and sherry cocktails are worth any ruckus.

    Start with an Old Raj, move onto the Heirloom tomatoes and Goat Cheese Motadito, Soft Shell Crab, Halibut and/or Flank Steak. Finish it off with the Nitella or Fig Tart.

    Great date place. Saffron infused old raj cocktail with citrus is one of the best in the city. Get ramps when in season.

    Best tapas in dc, blows Bodega, Jaleo, and La Tasca away. Everything we ordered was awesome and the pricing is def reasonable. Only thing that was not up to par was the red sangria (too bitter)

    If you can sit at the chefs bar in the back it's fun to watch them at work! An the cranberry slushito is amazing.

    The pea shoots, in Chinese called Dou Mao, are delicious. Perfectly oily, salty, crunchy and delicious.

    From the folks behind Proof - this is one of DC's hardest-to-get tables. There's a sizable wine list. Try the alcoholic slushie while you're here.

    Both versions of their croquettas are textbook perfect. Creamy wild mushroom with roes peppers and arugula. Jamon with pickled cucumber. Don't miss the figs wrapped in ham either.

    The plates will be small in size but big in flavor: pintxos (little snacks from the Basque region), bocadillos (little sandwiches) and lots of grilled meats and seafood. Read more

    Chef Karoum’s Spanish-influenced cooking doesn’t flaunt whiz-bang techniques or trendy ingredients—it’s made for everyday eating. Still, he’s making some of the most exciting food we’ve had this year.

    Sat at the bar and got great advice and conversation from two of the bartenders. Excellent food and even better Gintonics!
