I was disappointed overall. The waiter didn't take the order right, always felt like disturbing him. Didn't get the spanish experience I was aiming for either.

Overall the food was pretty good. Enjoyed the chicken and salads, but the fritter were mushy and the scallaps were a little bland (could have used a pinch of salt). The Churro dessert was good.

Our first time at your resto last night for my wife’s birthday. As tasty as the food was inside your stylish space, the service was awful. It should not take 30 minutes to get a drink served. When our guests arrived, no waiter showed up for another 20 minutes after and when they did, the waiter forgot to bring another drinks for the guest who had to wait for another 15 minutes. This delayed our other plans after dinner, and it disappointed the overall experience at Iberica. Sorry for mentioning this, but if you want returning business, we strongly suggest you to do something about your slow service.

While attending the Osheaga music festival, we decided to leave early one night to have a "real" meal. After a bit of research and discussion, we chose this restaurant, and were we glad that we did. Walking in, the ambiance immediately told us that we were in the right place. We were seated immediately, and the phenomenal service began. I cannot forget to say that the food was great, but in particular, the jamon croquettes were the best I have had anywhere, including Spain. My girlfriend thought the pulpo (octopus) was the best she had ever had. Overall, a wonderful experience!!!

It’s very hard to find authentic Spanish tapas after being to Spain a few times. Ibérica’s menu looks better on paper than on flavour. We ordered 3 tapas (anchovies, asparagus, and quail) and for the main we got a paella (surf&turf). From the tapas, thr asparagus by itself had the best flavour. The ham that accompanied was lost in the smoked asparagus. Quail was dried and on top of an apple sauce, which was too sweet, and the anchovies was just anchovies. For the paella, flavour was very good, but the chicken was super dried. The wine list is good, but on the higher price end, especially when you know you can get some of the bottles for 5 euros and they are charging $70CAD. We finished the meal with some churros and the waitress gave us at the end a little shot of passion fruit cocktail, which to me was the best thing I’ve tasted from tonight. Overall it was a good meal, but I would not go back if I’m craving a Spanish/tapas dinner.

Our first visit to this restaurant but I’d definitely go again the food was amazingly good. My husband had steak tartare which he loved and the homemade fries were to die for. A great evening all around.

We had the discovery menu, it was excellent. It' s a great way to try a little bit of everything ; tartare, ceviche, beignet de homard, grilled calamari, etc. Decor is great and ambiance just right . We had chosen a wine that felt "wrong" at first sip, the Maitre D acknowledge a "petit défaut" And changed it right away. She even recommended an excellent new choice. Service was impeccable. A little taste of Spain in MTL.

Went as a group of 3 people. The food was quite good especially the Iberian Ham Croquettes. The tapas had large enough portions that each of us had the opportunity to have a piece and split the rest.
The Scallop plate had some of the largest scallops I've been served in a restaurant and were good value for 18$ obtaining 4 large scallops.
The Jumbo shrimp were in a delicious sauce served with grilled bread that was perfect for dipping into said sauce.

For 3 of us without any wine, tip included, the meal came out to just over 200$. For lunch, this is definitely not the "cheap eats" type of place, the value was alright for a higher-end restaurant, we didn't leave hungry.

Like fine dining in Barcelona, but in Montreal. Great service, great food and amazing ambiance. A bit on the pricy side for the value, but definitely my new favorite spot downtown.

Another desapppointing, overpriced downtown restaurant. Me and my girlfriend ordered the grilled octopus and chorizo slices (60g for 32$ lol). which wasn’t even tasty. Just dry and fatty. We also had the 100$ fish & seafood platter (2 small pieces of fish, 2 shrimps, 2 scallops and 2 other small pieces of sea food). Wasn’t anything special. If you’re looking for a fine dining experience with delicious food, this isn’t the place. The restaurant was 60% empty, no ambiance and bad loud music. However, beautiful interior design. I will not recommend this place.

Poor service, had to ask whereabouts of my food 3 times - dining partner had finished her meal by the time mine arrived. Was told meat takes longer than salads - probably best to serve them together though. Very expensive and the chicken was rubbery. Will not return nor book for others or recommend. Very disappointing.

We made reservations here without looking at the menu, our fault however our waitress was rude and not accommodating when it came to figuring out what our child could eat. Finally when we decided on just ordering him a side of bread and butter (we were going to get his food from the fan fair that was going on afterwards) she seemed annoyed. She must not have kids or doesn’t like them as she was not nice at all. Her attitude and non welcoming personality left a bad taste for us.

Barcelona in Montreal, nice deco, lively but not too loud. Excellent food, in particular the octopus, scallops, shrimps, and the deliciously delicate dorade. Nice selection of wine including several by the glass. We had rosé spanish wine which was great with the fish. Gaspacho is expected soon. Going back ASAP.
