Excellent restaurant. Cuisine délicieuse (tapas et paellas), ambiance un peu bruyante dans le pic d'activité, mais en restant tard, on apprécie de mieux en mieux l'endroit. Service un peu inégal : serveuse principale très aimable et gentille, donnant de bons conseils. Mais les employés en support qui apportent les plats ou les retirent sont parfois un peu brusques. Les prix sont un peu élevés, mais la qualité de la nourriture et la situation du restaurant (en plein coeur du centre-ville de Montréal) l'expliquent.

We came for New Years Eve, and had a very rude waitress. We were a large family that was very happy to be spending our holiday abroad, but did not feel that we were treated well during our dinner at this restaurant. It was unfortunate, because the food was great and the ambience was excellent!

We had a selection of tapas. The flavor combinations were unique and every bite was delicious. I loved the seafood fritters. The waitstaff was friendly and very efficient. I can’t get used to city restaurant seating with strangers sitting so close to you, yet I found I was able to hear my date just fine. We were happy to pay with US dollars because it is pricey.

The food was delicious and I loved the atmosphere. I came for my birthday and our waitress (I unfortunately forget her name but I remember she said she was Colombian origin) was so lovely! We got the ceviche, grilled octopus, scallops, patatas bravas and lobster/shrimp croquettes. Everything was great. Kind of expensive for small plates but it’s high quality food so it’s worth it. definitely be coming back here.

Our server was excellent and very attentive. The ambiance is nice - very beautiful interior and dim lighting. Music could be a touch softer cause it is a bit noisy when in full dinner service. The grilled octopus was the best thing on the menu - tender and delicious. The charcuterie platter had nice meats but doesn’t come with anything else - some marinades or crackers would pair well. Instead you have to order bread which was a cheese toast type of option that is heavy and filling for a tapas course. Lighter breads or crackers would be better and should come with the board. The cod croquettes had too much potato which made the interiors a bit soft and mushy. The meatballs were mediocre. The grilled asparagus with ham was excellent. Some hit and some miss here. Wines are primarily Spanish which is suitable - wait staff was fairly knowledgeable about selections which was helpful.

Great decor and food, but terrible service. We waited 45 minutes for our table; we were told we were getting a free cocktail each at the bar while we wait, but when the bill came, they charged us for the drinks. Food was very rushed, as if they wanted us to leave (even if there was no other reservation for our table after us).

We paid $24 for a vegetable paella which was simply a plate with over cooked vegetables soaked in butter, no rice, definitely not a paella by any means.

The waiters started clearing our food away when we hadn’t even finished what was in the dishes, nor had we even put our forks down. It was as if they were trying to get us out quickly even though we were 4 people and had only been there one hour.

We first were invited for a business cocktail night on the mezzanine. We were very impressed by the variety and the quality of the food served. The service was highly professional, although very friendly. We had the opportunity to watch the cooks downstairs preparing a huge paella which we also enjoyed eating afterwards. We were so happy and delighted that we went back a few weeks later with a couple of friends. They were also impressed with the food, the service, the place, the atmosphere. Everything there is 6*.
We are keeping IBERICA and their address on top of our list downtown Montreal.

Overall, a restaurant with a lot of potential, but just missing the mark in terms of quality of food and service. Although I do realize it is not always easy to get experienced serving staff in Montreal, there is a minimum expectation. When the customer tells you the wine is corked, the wine is corked...put the cork back in the bottle and return it to the SAQ for a refund! I was sending wine back for being corked before you were even an idea in your parents' minds! Don't go ask the other twenty-year old server what she thinks! Neither of you is a sommelier, and quite honestly, if you couldn't tell it on that wine, very worrying. Not to mention you wanted to open another bottle for us and serve the corked bottle by the glass to other unknowing patrons...shame!

Une cuisine espagnol typique et gastronomique qui en vaut largement le détour. Parfait pour un dîner d'affaire, nous nous entendons parler facilement et le service est très agréable.
Nous avons pris plusieurs tapas délicieux, un poisson à partager à trois incroyable et un plateau dessert succulent.
Je le recommande à tous !

Had a great evening until the end when the waitress gave me a hard time because I did not give her the 15% tip on the value of the bill plus taxes. She even tried to sell it as the 'way of doing it' here in Montreal until I told her that I knew tip was only for the value of the bill without taxes because I did live here. It kind of ruined the night when she tried to take advantage of the situation. At the end I did not give her anything but what was fair.
