Unless your definition of authentic Spanish is downtrodden and impoverished then Spain restaurant is not for you, because that is exactly how to describe the neighborhood that this restaurant is located in. Food was mediocre at best while the prices reflected a mid- to high-end bistro in West LA (think Cobras & Matadors across from The Grove). The best value was a $20 paella that had 4 adult servings although it was slightly bland. Skip the overpriced appetizers. Mushrooms with garlic were a joke priced at $7 considering the mushrooms were from a 69-cent can (they didn't even taste good). You are better off paying a little more and eating at any of the 5 or 6 better Spanish tapas establishments, with better food, ambience, service, and not having to worry about being carjacked. Ironically, these are all listed inside CitySearch. \r
What's more, no one in Spain restaurant actually came from Spain, unless you consider speaking Spanish the only requirement necessary.
Pros: Decent paella
Cons: Overpriced, bad area,
