Mallorca Ratings and Reviews

Mallorca is an interesting restaurant that everyone should try at least once. Very good food, cocktails, wine list, and the servers are entertaining. Our only complaint was they were vague about prices (specials) and this can surprise when the check arrives. Some diners might also be a little put off by the joking and the way they respond to questions, not always providing direct answers. This is probably a bit intentional. Overall we had a good time, however, and enjoyed everything about Mallorca.
The best part of Mallorca is the menu se ...
The best part of Mallorca is the menu selection and the quality of the food they serve. The broiled lobster tails were cooked to perfection, and the rice, mixed vegetables and Spanish potatoes were excellent. It was very busy when we were there and our waiter didn't really provide the level of service that is expected at a restaurant of this caliber. We ordered a second glass of wine, but the waiter did not bring it till we were done eating and ready to leave. He was very apologetic and said the second glass was "on the house," but it would have been more enjoyable if it had been served while we were still eating our dinner, and we would have been happy to pay for it. Otherwise, we very much enjoyed our meals and will certainly plan to return in the future.

Did not like the table we were seated at. When we asked to be moved our server said the other table was reserved for a party of 4. Hiwever, other 4 seating tables had 2 people dining at them. And I noticed they seated a couple (2 pepole) at the table we asked to be moved to. I do not intend to dine there ever again. The crab cakes are poor quality....too much filler. The crab stuffed shrimp are stuffed with a crab stuffing & u can barely taste the crab meat. I've gone to Mallorca on the Southside in Pittsburgh and the food has always been great. Very dissatisfied with the experience at the downtown Cleveland location.

Traveled to Cleveland for family event. Restaurant recommended by hotel staff. Great service. Great food. Decent price. Large helpings. Two talapas and one entree was more than enough for two.

We've gone to Mallorca for years, and it continues to amaze! The food, atmosphere and service rank among the best of the best in Cleveland. They stay true to their Spanish-Portuguese heritage in every way. This is a great place to go for dinner when attending a theater or sports event downtown, as well as for that special celebration akk on it's own.

I had eaten there previously a couple years ago and the food was delicious. This time, the food was horrible. Swordfish was dry and tough from being overcooked and the Paella didn't fare any better; the seafood was way overcooked, dry, tough and tasteless.

EXCELLENT DINING AT MALLORCA
This was our first time dining at Mallorca. We were extremely happy with the waitstaff, who were all very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and plated very nicely. We ordered mussels in fra-daviolo sauce and calamari for appetizers. The appetizers were very delicious. I ordered a sangria, which was very refreshing. For our entrees, my husband enjoyed the Paella he ordered and my son loved the Talapia Rellena he ordered. I ordered the shrimp wrapped in bacon in brandy sauce. This dish was delicious. We also ordered another Talapia Rellena to go for our older son, who was unable to dine with us. He also loved the Talapia Rellena. We ordered dessert and coffee after our dinner, flan and chocolate cake. The desserts and coffee were very tasty and were a nice way to end the meal. Mallorca has been added to our list of restaurants we love to dine at. We will be back again.
Best waiters ever.
If you go without the large waiter than your missing the true Mallorca experience.
A hidden gem of downtown Cleveland
The service and food make this an authentic Spanish experience that should definitely be checked out! The servers were FANTASTIC. Fun, knowledgeable and just great to spend an evening dining with. The food is authentic and the menu is very representative of Spanish and Portuguese culture. The wine list is very well prepared as their many awards show. I think this restaurant has been forgotten with the tremendous growth of the downtown Cleveland food scene but it is definitely a must visit!
Multiple waiters attend to you. We had five waiters for the four of us. Not ideal, but we were well served. They kind of put on a show and are pretty loud. As for the food, the paella was very good, surf and turf was good but only luke warm, the filet was very good, and the stuffed sole was good.

The food was decent but the service was terrible! We felt rushed to order. We ordered apps and got salads at same time. Our server never came back to our table after taking our orders to deliver food, ask how it was, refill water and other drinks. We then had to wait 20 minutes after they cleared our plates and request 3 times for our check! We wanted dessert bit at that point no one had asked and was such a production to get the check we just wanted out of there because we had tickets to show! Ridiculous!
Good food, large portions, very loud server
The food was good. Not great but good. Portion sizes were large. The server spoke very loudly, almost shouting, and stood very close. It was awkward and killed any possible ambience. He was, however, nice and friendly. The restaurant is very noisy.
Dinner is my favorite.
I love having dinner at Mallorca. I love the people who work there and they always make my evening more fun. The food is soo good. The drinks are soo good. The people are soo friendly. I can't wait to go again!
Six Star Service
The food options are simply the best in town. The staff are EXCEPTIONAL! Five Stars are not enough to grade Mallorca.
Excellent menu choices; delicious paella.
Very noisy; conversation impossible for much of the meal.

Mallorca is one of our favorite places. We ha be never been disappointed by the food or the service The staff always makes us feel special, yet at home. Unfortunately this was our first visit this year, but we will make every effort to make it back soon.
This was the perfect place to celebrate my 40th birthday dinner with friends. I had a reservation for 12, we ended up with 8 in the party. a few people came late but were still promptly attended to and served. the food was exquisite. I had the rib eye and it was outstanding. Saffron rice is to die. The prices are reasonable and the quality is great. location cant be beat. This was my first time and I cant wait to dine here again in the warmer months.
Rushed service. Lack of concern from staff.
Restaurant week is supposed to be an opportunity to try new places. Mallorca made it seem like there were 200 people waiting for our table. The food came out on top of each other and wasn't prepared as ordered. It was bland and lacked the quality and wasn't up to the level that the original pricing would require. The servers showed no concern and there was no manager on site. Truly disappointed in this experience.

To be quite frank and fair, the service was one of the worst services I have ever experienced in my life. We went there for my birthday and there was 10 of us. The server was very snoopy and kept saying how he been doing this for 4 years and he doesn't want to do it anymore. He kept us waiting for so long to take orders and every time we talk to him he would interrupt is saying that "he's not ready for us"!!! Food was definitely good but when you experience such a bad service, no matter how good the food is, it still is worst experience. I never ever advice anybody on dining there and I know I won't find there again.
The food was wonderful, a pleasant experience.
The food was wonderful, with generous portions. Service was quick, and the wait staff was nice, polite and attentive. It was loud, because it was crowded, but the pleasant atmosphere and great food more than made up for it. We definitely plan to be back to this restaurant.
This was our first visit and we had a wonderful experience. We tried this restaurant because it apart of Cleveland Restaurant Week. The service was great and food was outstanding. We will absolutely return and will recommend this to other people.

Food was generous and tasty. Restaurant week menu a great value! But as meal ended, they seem to forget about us. Table was cleared, glasses empty, it felt like they thought we paid. But we wanted desert. I had to flag someone for service.

The Sangria is a must! Not too sweet! Perfect. Loved loved the grilled Octopus app. The stuffed sole with crab was excellent. Shrimp with red sauce was average. Shrimps were small. However the bowl was huge .. I'd rather have large shrimp with a smaller amount. We should have ordered a side. We liked the chips very much but we don't care for broccoli and cauliflower much. Tiramisu was very fresh and good also. Service was excellent.

Wonderful service--several waiters kept checking on our table and our glasses of water were never even close to being empty. There were also plentiful portion sizes during restaurant week! It's ambient and the lights are dim enough for a romantic date, but also a friendly atmosphere for the family or a group of friends. The waiters were all extremely friendly and even offered Almond Vodka shots on the house, which were delicious.

Disappointed in the food, however the service was good.
Good Food - Frenetic Service
First off, the food was good; perhaps closer to very good! And the location and curb appeal of the restaurant was fine! However, there were just too many concerns for a recommendation. Our biggest issue was the frenetic pace of the wait staff. SLOW DOWN people: you rushed about the dining rooms so much, it was distracting ! Also, some people want to relax and enjoy the dining experience. Secondly, get yourself organized: everyone seemed to be doing everything. Also, please print a daily sheet with the specials and place it inside the menu - there were so many specials, who could remember the particulars? Thirdly, lose the potato chips: if you are going to serve them: do it as an pre-appetizer with the drinks. Why they were served with fish and paella was beyond us. Also, lose the cold vegetables - totally un-needed. Lastly, new linens: yes, they were clean but they were worn and it showed!
Cramped and terrible service.
I used to love this place. We waited 90 minutes for our dinner. Food was not even mediocre. Everything on the drink menu was out of stock. Three different kinds of scotch and ginger beer. What a mess. I will never go there again.

Terrible food and service. Inedible. Terrible representation of Cleveland Restaurant Week.
Previously good but this was a bad experience
The first server went over specials then ran off before we could ask any questions about the specials. No one checked on beverage refills until the dessert order. The service was in the bottom 3 of all my dining experiences. This was not our experience in the past visits. To top it all off my date got a mild case of food poisoning from the seafood.
Excellent restaurant & exceptional service
Perfect restaurant for a romantic evening with a great wine list and exceptional service. Very impressed by the recommendations made by the servers as well as their attentiveness.

Service was not what I was used to. I think they over booked themselves for the night. But the food was amazing as always.
Noisy and too much commotion but great food.
We have been to Mallorca numerous times over the past ten years but it is losing its appeal, and fast. The food is DELICIOUS. However, the tables are so close together that I was frequently hit in the back by waiters. My purse, which was under my chair, was kicked each time as well. I just sat there waiting for a tray to tip over to have food and beverages spill on my head, because teays were literally passed over my head. It was annoying. It also seemed that each table had servers attend frequently to it but we saw our waiter maybe three times; he even appeared bothered by us asking for a wine list, which I cannot believe we had to ask for anyway. It was just too busy and also too loud, though the noise level does not concern us too much. If they will stop packing in customers like sardines and overworking its employees to the point of each having sweat drip on me as each literally walks swiftly by (read: bumps into) me, they may get my service again. It would also be nice to have my bottle of wine on ice instead of plopped on my tabe for two hours. Again, nothing negative about the food (I highly recommend the shellfish casserole in garlic sauce), they just need to work on spacing and service.
