In the Spring of 2001 Iberia opened The Rock of Gibraltar Comestibles, a retail food store offering all of Iberiasac2s favorite dishes acoeto goac, as well as the largest resource for imported Spanish food products in Northern California. The Rock also has cooking programs that are hands-on and allows students free run of Iberiaac2s kitchens. Conveniently, The Rock is located just next door to Iberia.
I had dinner there on a friday night, and while the restaurant was not busy the service was HORRIBLE! From the bartender to the servers - everyone was incompetent- and worst of all they add 19% tip to all tabs. A total insult. The food was just average and truly the only thing going for this restaurant was the ambiance- what a disappointment
Iberia Restaurant is awkwardly located behind the Menlo Park train station, but it's worth the cross to other side of the tracks. We went to the bar area for tapas and had a delicious meal. Most tapas are under $4 each and the selection we had were incredibly tasty. Service was a bit slow, but very friendly. I will definitely go back!
A out of a way place behind the Menlo Park train station, Iberia has the best tapas on the peninsula. Tapas is only served in the bar area. Be sure to walk all the way back in the bar and sit next to the fireplace. The rooms remind you of being in a chalet. One of the best tapas dishes is the deviled dates which are dates wrapped in bacon and stuffed with chorzio.
The service is very European mening that it can be slow at times but that is how tapas is meant to be enjoyed.
I really love the Olives appetizer plate they bring out instead of the quintessential bread most restaurants dump on you. We've eaten here many times (more so when we used to live down the street) and the food is great every time. They recommended a great Sherry for a Digestif, which really topped if off. Try the Paella, or the Parrillada del Moro, they're both incredible
Iberia is one of those easily overlooked gems in Menlo Park due to its slightly off-the-beaten-path location and somewhat obscure name. But, make no mistake, this place serves very solid renditions of Spanish classics like Paella Galiciana and mouth-watering tapas dishes like Patatas Bravas and Sauteed Squid with garlic and parsely. The service is a little on the Iberian side -- a little too laid-back and casual for my taste -- but the wait staff are very friendly and inviting. The decor is out of a 16th century Spanish padilla, with dark rich wood paneling, intimate booths and large wooden family crests adorning the walls.
