Best of The Best Tapas 12/8/2006

It doesn't get any better than Emilio's. I have been to Spain, most major cities worldwide and I have not found a better Spanish restaurant anywhere. The food, ambiience, value and energy is exceptional. The Paella is outstanding, with lively flavors, as are most of the daily specials. Emilio is one of the true great chefs that puts over 30 years of passion in his food and ambience. There are other restaurants that serve tapas in Chicago and other cities but there is only one Tapas King, a tribute to years of execellent consisitency. If you can get him to cater a party, he will surprise you well beyond most caterers as well. Pros: Food, ambience Cons: Can be a wait on the weekends, but not bad more


At Emilio's the variety and quality of food was not very good. The ambiance is nice and the desert is average. The prices are a bit high compared to other tapas restaurants like Iberico. I ordered about 7 different hot and cold tapas items and the taste was poor. The croquetas are double the price and half the amount compared to other places. Pros: Ambience Cons: Quality of food and prices more

Emilios - 3/16/2006

The food was very tasty, but expensive. I liked everything I tried. We ordered the grilled veggies, chicken with lemon and grilled veggies, dates wrapped in bacon, venison ravioli, chickpea humus, goat cheese with tomatoes, and bean soup. The portions were VERY small. The humus was spread so thinly on the plate it was comical. No joke, it was probably 1/16 of an inch or less. You had to scrape your piece of bread on the plate to get any at all. The plate of grilled veggies had 7 slices of vegetables. There were only 3 raviolis. It cost us $15/person. It is expensive for what you get, but it is fun and the food is good. I just which the serving sizes were normal not minuscule. Pros: food Cons: price more

Excellent!! 7/31/2003

We went to Emilios not knowing what to expect and were pleasantly surprised. The food was amazing and the prices were very reasonable. The servers were really nice and helpful and the ambience is good too. Our favourite was the duck ravioli with goat cheese and the stuffed mushrooms with spinach. Overall, Emilios is a great place with good food and good value for money. And I also wanted to mention that their host looks exactly like ""The Rock"" from WWE. Pros: Food, Service, Price more

The tops in tapas 1/27/2003

Emilio's is still the king of tapas. The dining room is usually packed and festive. The food is as superb as ever. Favorites tapas dishes include the duck with couscous, chicken with three sauces and the killer garlic potato salad. But leave room for dessert, the tiramisu and the poached pears are excellent. Pros: Superb food Cons: Crowded more
