"Food at this restaurant was good but no better than dozens of other places in the city. Service was spotty at best. The hot mussel appetizer is mostly hot red pepper. Almost inedible. The cold dish is quite good. Mains were overcooked. The banana cream pie was great. Coffee was supposed to be decaf but probably not. All in all an ok but not great experience in Lincoln Center area."

"This is a restaurant that doesn't seem to know what it wants to be. The food is Spanish, and it was OK, but the music was – just turn off that noise, will you? – and why do we need flat screen TVs? Hey, that's it: a Spanish sports bar! Maybe go somewhere else. The bright spot was definitely our server. Very attentive."

"Great place to go for tapas before a dance performance at the Joyce Theater across the street. Nice variety. Loved the chorizo, the dates and bacon, and especially the shrimp with garlic. Fun happy hour and very good sangria."

"very good selection of tapas with interesting mixes of ingredients with decent portions at pretty fair prices. service is a bit lackluster but if you go early as I did, you can eventually get someone to help you. and look at the check; the waiter had a hard time with the math which had to be corrected. like the flamenco music being played over the airwaves."

"Dinner before a performance at The Joyce was great. The staff - every single one of them - were friendly and attentive. We had a table of small plates and loved them all - especially the brussel sprouts and the shrimp with garlic. A lovely dinner in lively pre-theater scene."

"We selected El Cid because it is across the avenue from the Joyce Theater where we were attending a performance at 8pm on a Saturday, Initially I booked for 4 people, then added another 2 and at the last minute we had 7 people. The staff, who are very warm and kind, were very accommodating to all these changes. They also turned the sound system down so that we could all hear one another. The food was delicious. The service was rather chaotic, maybe because some of the group came at different times, but they did get us all out in perfect time to make the show. We all enjoyed El Cid and will be back. (The Joyce show was great too -- together a lovely NY evening!)."

"El Cid has terrific tapas, as good as any that i had in Spain last spring. The ingredients are fresh; the presentation attractive. And there is something on the menu that will suit any taste, from sauteed mushrooms, to chicken croquettes; from octopus to sweetbreads; from ham to manchego. Yet people seem to be unaware of the fine food and come only for the bar scene which can sometimes get too loud."

"Awesome for a pre theater quick dinner. Good enough for other occasions. Beware, if the front is open and the fans on, the air is off. It can get warm. The closed the fron and turned on the air mid meal. Ahhhh!"

"I love this restaurant as pre-Joyce dining - the food is fantastic, the servers are great and it is super convenient if you are going to see a show at Joyce. It can be very noisy though!"

"My date and I were first time patrons of this establishment and throughly enjoyed the atmosphere, especially the outdoor patio. The food was amazingly tasting and the drinks were just right (I recommend the rum punch)! I will definitely visit El Cid in the near future!"
