Went here the other night for dinner. We got a bunch of hot and cold tapas and enjoyed it all. The sangria was delicious. We will definitely be going back again!

My first visit to El Pulpo Restaurant was with a friend, who frequents El Pulpo with his wife on a regular basis. I met the owner during this visit and our lunch was fantastic. The menu is Mediterranean, which is a very nice change from the traditional sit down restaurants in the area. The food is fresh and extremely well prepared. The bar is extremely capable. So, I then decided to visit with my wife (who, BTW, has this as her go-to place for lunch visits with friends). Same experience. Frankly, their lunch menu is so good, I can’t wait to try dinner here. One bit of advice—don’t judge because it’s next door to a garage, that would be a big mistake. The outside cover definitely does not match the warm and friendly atmosphere inside. Very impressed. Service was great. I highly recommend.

Had dinner with my wife for Valentine's. The food was excellent, well prepared, both the seafood dish and the steak. Based on the quality of the food, this place would rate at least a 4.5. But the service was subpar in basic ways. It took 45 minutes and numerous requests to have a coffee cup refilled, and several requests for more bread were never
fulfilled. This is pretty basic and should not happen at a quality restaurant. So, a 4.5 for food and a 2.0 for service.

Amazing meal here last Saturday night with my wife. Came here for an early Valentine's Day celebration, and they did not disappoint. Had their duck crepes special and the beef medallions tapas dishes, followed by the seared scallops and lobster over fried rissotto and the lamb chops. Best dinner we've had in a while! Great place to try new things, and the service was extremely friendly/prompt. Will definitely be back, highly recommend!

Great food , great service and reasonable prices for what you get. Every meal we’ve had has been outstanding. We usually get a variety of tapas and salads and nothing has ever disappointed. It is our favorite place in the area ( we think it’s better than most of the expensive restaurants in west Hartford). Worth a visit if you’d like to try dishes that are Mediterranean/ Spanish. No buffalo/fried chicken wings - just excellently prepared and presented dishes that are truly different from the norm.
