Everything was absolutely perfect from the moment I arrived. The service was second to none. The food was on par with some of the finest restaurants in the world that I have been to.

Authentic Spanish cuisine is served by a staff that never fails to anticipate every need. The prices are reasonable for this type of quality! Additionally, we booked our reservation on a night when Maurice Sedacca was playing live guitar music, which elevated our spirits and added greatly to the the ambience.
We recommend the escargot appetizer, the salmon in green sauce and of course, any of the paella variations will exceed your expectations. (Try pairing that with a pitcher of sangria, prepared tableside!)

For a romantic dinner or a family gathering, there's nothing like Marbella Restaurant!

I was sadly disappointed with the menu choices for the Mother's Day dinner. I was assuming that since we were eating in the main dining room, that I would be able to order off the regular menu and that was not the case. What I wanted and wished for was not available and I had to settle. The waiter did accommodate me when I asked him to leave mussels out of my mariscada.
I have been going to this restaurant since I was a kid and it had some great memories for me, but taking my kids there, it was not what I hyped it up to be.
I hope it was because the menu was limited, but you're not even able to see a full menu online at all, so I probably will not return. So sad... 40 years of going somewhere and always being happy, one night too that away..

The live harp music was a nice touch, but the dining experience was pretty mediocre at best. The paella was a bit salty and not served in a pan as it traditionally is- instead in individual plates. The servers did their job and accommodated our requests when asked/ prompted, but weren’t too friendly or attentive. Overall, was pricey for what you get. Not sure if I’ll be returning.

To avoid the usual Mother's Day crowds, we went on Friday evening instead. There was a large group of people at a table by the wall, but they were very jovial and not at all annoying. The restaurant was very busy, but the waiters maintained their professional skills and courtesy. We had 2 kinds of paella and our son had the stuffed lobster. All were excellent choices, as were the artichokes vinaigrette appetizer and the key lime pie dessert. The best of all though was the (seemingly) endless pitcher of Sangria! A wonderful truly Spanish restaurant in northern Queens...

The food was excellent. We both had osso buco and the escargot. I want to try the paella I saw it at someone’s table and it looked so good. The service was a little slow but that allowed us to stay just a bit longer.

My husband and I went to Marbella for the first time last night and like every review I had read, it did not disappoint. The food and service were top notch and the harpist added a lovely touch to our dining experience. Our water glasses were continuously refilled and The maitre d came over several times to check in with us. A bit pricey but well worth it especially for a special occasion.

Wonderful experience from start to finish. They just reopened from being closed within NYC limits for COVID indoor dining regulations. They were very happy to be reopened and seeing customers back, while being extremely COVID cautious. We ordered the seafood paella- super delicious and filled with a ton of fresh seafood (clams, shrimp, scallops, lobster, mussels, etc) huge portion and cooked to perfection. It takes 20-30 minutes as it is cooked to order. They do a presentation at the table as they serve you and you can tell they take pride in what they are serving. Crapes for dessert ... another great experience as it was cooked at the table. Once a month they have a flamingo show with a price fixed dinner. Overall 2 thumbs up and look forward to returning. Highly recommend.

My husband and I always feel at home here and are greeted by name upon entry without us having to check in. The manager and entire staff are so pleasant and make us feel like family. :).

We absolutely love the food and the raspberry tart with raspberry drizzle is the BEST!!! The service is always professional and a pleasure to speak with. The atmosphere is lovely and the musician who plays the harp is so very talented and adds eloquence to an already elegant place to dine.

If you haven't already been here, it's a MUST to dine at with your significant other and/or family and friends. YOU'LL LOVE IT!

My husband and I have frequented this restaurant for decades. We love it! It never disappoints. Even thru the pandemic the staff has maintained great food, greater service and a welcoming atmosphere while following all the CDC recommended guidelines. We thank our lucky stars that it has been able to stay open and survive where so many other restaurants have not.

Marbella has done a beautiful job transforming their parking lot into an outside restaurant. You don't even realize you are in a parking lot. It is a covered area with a harpist playing. All the wait staff is wearing masks and are very accommodating. The menu is accessed by using a QR Reader on your smartphone so it is contactless. The emapanadillas are delicious! We enjoyed the stuffed sole and paella along with the Spanish beer and red wine. And we had the Marbella crepes for dessert. Excellent all around!! I've been twice and will continue to go weather permitting.

We had dinner on rooftop terrace. It’s part of the garage that they have sectioned off and made into a nice dining area. It’s all covered which is nice and nicely lit. The food, as always is fantastic. The staff all so happy to welcome you to the restaurant. We were not rushed, the staff all had masks and gloves. Great night!

The restaurant is a tapas restaurant culturally known as a meal ordered slowly. Not a quick bite.
If they close at 9, they should not take 7:30 reservations. The waiters were stacking tables and telling us the cook wanted to go home at 8:30.
It was a disappointment. We unfortunately won’t be back.
