You can practically taste the love that Chef Julian Serrano puts into creating delectable interpretations of his native Spanish fare. Relish the comfort of Serrano ham alongside a creamy cheese platter. Or be adventurous and sample savory white anchovy fillets and black pig pinxto topped with perfectly caramelized onions. Whatever your personality, there’s a little something to suit it.

Worst experience ever in a business meeting - and I’ve organize meetings around the world for 10+ years. Food is bad (I am Spanish myself so I know what I am talking about). The service was sooooo slow…. So f course waitress have no manners...at all as the manager himself is rude!More

Great spanish tapas restaurant. I try to eat there everytime i am town. So glad they are back open now. Love the atmosphere of these place. Elegance and class. The stuffed dates appitizer are my favorite. Stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped with bacon. The...only thing i can say on them is a bit crisper bacon is needed. The seafood paella is very scrumptious and filling. Enough for three people. Has tons of shrimp, lobster, chicken and sauage aling with everything else. Would eat here every week if i could.More

Stopped by for a late supper and was blown away with the suckling pig, oxtail, and sardines on toast. Truly authentic Spanish flavors. Pig was cooked perfectly with extra crispy skin. No need for sauce. We skipped the paella as it takes an hour to...prep. But suckling pig took long too. We'll be back for both next. Muy delicioso!More

Just visited this past week. This is the best small plates around! While the four of us waited to share the Valencia Paella, we enjoyed several small plates: Mushroom Risotto, Brava Potatoes, Albondigas (prime rib meatballs), Chicken Croquettas and Boquerones. Then for dessert the Creme...Brule and homemade churros. This is a hidden gem inside Aria. Great service and presentation. We will definitely be back! Thank you Julian Serrrano's Tapas!More

We stayed at the Aria and were able to get reservations. We ordered the chicken croqets (8/10), serano ham appetizer…this was 39 dollars and pretty chincy on the bread and sauce and ham. Very disappointed. Finally ordered the paella, which in the photo looks amazing,...but really lacked flavor. Honestly, Vegas has such great restaurants, I would go elsewhere for the cost.More

Fantastic spot to go with friends, order a bunch of small plates, and try everything! We stopped in late evening looking for light fare, and weren't disappointed. The mushroom risotto was excellent! Great location too, as many tables give you a great opportunity to people...watch.More

Sat down. 1st thing I told th7 hihi noe waiter, Romain, is that we wanted to have a couple drinks before dinner and the LAST THING I WANTED WAS TO BE SERVED DRINKS AFTER DINNER IS SERVED. I asked for to much. 1st drink. Quick....2nd drink, 25 minutes and SERVED WITH DINNER. Then the waiter was on top of us like a DRONE , WAITING TO CLEAR THE TABLE. GO ELSEWHERE. OTHER REVIEWS CORRECT. WORST DATE NIGHT.More

In Aria. Beautiful setting next to Catch and away from sometimes smokey casino floor. Staff could be friendlier, but fine. Food was excellent. Order the paella right away. Red sangria was great. 1 pitcher was enough for 4 adults. Make sure you use the spoon/fork/stir...tool to eat the fruit at the bottom. That was one of the best things about dinner. Salmon tacos are so small, but an amazing bite (worth the price, but don’t expect satiation). Calamari was ok, probably the low point honestly as everything else is so much better (touch too greasy). Favorite all all was grilled octopus. Don’t let them talk you into the limoncello. Wheelchair accessible. Clean restrooms.More

Stopped by here for some Tapas on Vtines Day woth my wife. Excellent service by all staff. We ate sashimi (good, but very small portion), risotto (i liked it a lot, wife meh), garlic shrimp (good but again small). Overall, taste was good, but even...by Vegas prices, you could do better elsewhere. It fit our needs for the night, but i would only go again if the company was paying.More

I reserved a table to be sure there was no wait. After I was seated, my server greeted me by name. He provided great service. I had three tapas and all were delicious and large portioned. The atmosphere is both vibrant and relaxing.

I don't believe they offer happy hour anymore just as of a few months ago. But you could call to confirm.
