This place is delicious. Great food, great cocktails and an upbeat vibe. It was packed, which kind of made it a bit of a challenge, but affirms my thought that it's great. I'd go there with an appetite and order as many tapas as your heart desires, they are all fun and yummy.

Second time here. Awful experience. They are selling jamón ibérico that is not that at all. I am very familiar with this product and this was the lower grade Serrano. I asked to see the leg and they did not respond. Tapas are decent but not authentic Spanish as advertised. They serve wine in water glasses in 3oz servings! Any tapa bar in Spain would laugh at this place. Overpriced and low quality.

If Estadio wasn't uber-crowded every night of the week with an annoying wait, I would have given it 5 stars. But crowds aside, their cocktails and food were pretty stellar. Here's a rundown of what we had: - white sangria (yes yes yes must try) - leonora cheese (awesome if you like stinky creamy cheeses) - fuet sausage (i might skip this next time and go for the acorn-fed iberico) - beet and goat cheese montadito (dont leave without trying this) - deviled egg stuffed with ensaladilla rusa (basically a tuna deviled egg that is SO good. you can order just one if you want) - the veal sweetbreads (very tender and tasty, might switch it up next time) - crispy duck - 7/10. good but not omg amazing, - wild mushrooms (great juicy and roasted) - manchego cheesecake (I LICKED THE PLATE) All in all, I'd go back and definitely want to try their brunch!

Having moved to DC for almost 10 months, one things I've noticed is that this city is all about the small plates. Since Estadio was recommended again and again for their tapas, I decided to invite my visiting guests here for a reunion, welcoming brunch. I should had looked up their menu prior, we only learned that Estadio actually serve full sized entrees and limited small plates for brunch when we were all seated and ready to feast. Nevertheless, we were still in for a treat - Foie gras scramble with truffled butter toasts? Pork belly hash? Creamy polenta with poached eggs? Everyone was well fed and extremely happy! Aside from delicious food, service was warm and attentive, ambiance was rustic and cozy. If their brunch menu is a glimpse of their dinner menu, then I can't wait to return to treat myself to their actual tapas!

I was torn between giving Estadio 2 and 3 stars but I think 2 is a fairer reflection of my experience given the price point. I'd been looking forward to eating here for a long time as I had heard great things and had been saving it for a special occasion. We started with sangria which came in the worlds smallest glass (6-8 oz at most, full of ice). You get about 2 sips. And it is extremely watery. (Oh and our water glasses were left empty and unfilled - a rare experience in this country and a general sign of inattentive service.) The small plates were similarly small, even the very expensive ones. We had 5 people in our party and most only came with 4 pieces. No one thought to tell us this and it would have been helpful to know. Also, we ordered a mixed meat plate which comes with bread and they only gave us 4 pieces of that as well. Seriously, how hard is it to put 1 piece of bread per person on the table! And there was no oil or butter or anything else to dip the bread in which is disappointing for a restaurant like this. Taste wise, a couple of items we ordered were delicious (Hanger Steak was my favorite) but most didn't wow. The kale was burnt. And while I am fine with plates coming out as and when they are ready, it felt extra disjointed compared to other tapas places (we had to wait 20 minutes for our last dish from the time the one before that was delivered - too long!). Overall, it was extremely disappointing.

I love Estadio. I've been there at least four times. The last time was about two weeks ago and the service was awful. The waitress didn't come back to our table for at least fifteen minutes and we had second rounds of drinks coming. She waited on all the tables around us the whole time. Estadio is poorly designed. Very little table space. Everyone's chair is backing into someone else's. Extremely crowded all the time. Try to get a seat in the back near kitchen. The kale, braised bacon, shishito peppers and Brussels sprouts are top notch.
