Success! Thanks for posting your review of Zarzuela. You’ve done the world some good today.

Delicious Food, Divine Sangria and Fantastic Service!

We were here last week for a celebration with a big group of friends and were seated in the back. I think we actually ended up ordering everything on the menu and it was simply delicious! The service was great and the food was amazing. the Sangria, which I think we ordered at least 10 pitchers! were simply the Best I have ever had! I would say a lovely place with lovely food and reminds you straight of SPAIN!... view more

I first visted zarzuela with some friends who are local to SF. I went up to visit and was treated to a great tapas experience. the sangria was so good and every plate we ordered was so full of flavor and adverturous.\r \r I don't usually like the dark crowded tapas bars but this place had a lot of character. it could've easily been a cold, dark, restaurant but it was so bustling and full of people enjoying the fo... view more

Tapas You'll Never Forget

Having passed Zarzuela on the Hyde St. Cable Car for the past two years, it was finally time to heed the raves from locals on the Cable Car. We met our friends from Portola Valley to plan a trip to Italy. Arriving early in the dinner hour we had no trouble being seated. The service was very helpful since we had never eaten at a tapa resturant before. The selection was numerous and covering a range of tastes, so i... view more

Superb food

I have gone to Zarzuela 3 times over a span of about 12 years since I only get to San Francisco occasionally. The food remains superb each time I go. I have eaten at quite a few Spanish restaurants in the US, and it is easily the best and most authentic aside from Cafe Iberico in Chicago. The grilled mushrooms with serrano ham and garlic were excellent, as was the jamon iberico with tomato bread. The wait can som... view more

Price does not match the quality/quantity

With my girlfriend we were looking for a romantic tapas place, the name sounded nice. Food was good, but not amazing at all + portions were small, too small for the price (about $8 for each tapas), the lamb dish, was $8 for 2 minuscule skewers. The atmosphere was OK, but not romantic, I think it's a good place for a group but not just a couple...

Cozy tapas !!!

A fabulous tapas joint with a lot of 'panache?! The first impression was the cozy dining hall behind the big bay windows, with every inch packed. Parking was an issue, but we decided to park a little far and take a cab. There are no reservations taken for two, and when we reached, there was a wait in a tiny room where we entertained ourselves with ?sangrias?. The sangrias were not the best in town, but what followed ... view more

Tasty Tapas

Took a taxi, so parking was not an issue. We waited for an hour, first outside and then inside in the tiny waiting area. Fortunately, the wait allowed us to work up a huge appetite. Our waiter was delightful, I looked forward to his returning to our table. There were 2 of us, we ordered 6 items, which pleasantly were not all brought out at once but in a steady progression. The marinated,grilled peppers were wonderful... view more

Great Eats, Excellent Service

Love this place. Been there several times. The value for what you get and the quality can't be beat by any tapas place in the city. The service has been exceptional each time I have been there. I always reccomend this place to friends in search of a good Tapas restaurant.

Decent Spanish food, nothing to rave about

Went to check our Zarzuela after it was recommended by a ton of people and after reading Michael Bauer's praise of the restaurant's paella. Was expecting a great meal, which turned out to be decent, but nothing special. The paella was a bit too dry for my taste. Comparing it to my last experience at Alegria's, Alegria's comes out on top - no doubt.

Soulful Spanish Tapas

Exceptional dishes at affordable prices. Wait, this can't be in San Francisco, and just a few blocks from Lombard street, can it? This is Spanish comfort food at it's best. With attractive prices and rich, soulful preparations, I find myself jealous of those who live within walking distance. This is a truly great neighborhood restaurant. Although recent additions to the local Tapas scene surpass overall food qu... view more
