Description: Thank you for your interest in Emilio’s Tapas. Emilio’s Tapas is an authentic Spanish Tapas Bar Restaurant conveniently located in West Suburban Hillside. Spanish cuisine can best be described as a mix of French and Italian influences; tapas are small dishes ideal for appetizers or when ordered in rounds build a complete meal. Our menu consists of regional Spanish specialties, original dishes created by Emilio offered in both the dining room and bar for dinner daily. The restaurant is casual with spacious dining rooms and an energetic atmosphere accentuated by colorful Spanish murals, music and tiles.

We don't get here but once or twice a year at the most. Usually traveling through and need to stay for the night. Only 5 minutes from a Hampton Inn is this great place with friendly service, authentic tapas and paella. Service is swift too but comfortable. It is my favorite Spanish place.

Thank kawidd

Fantastic tapas dishes. 4 of us had 8 tapas and not a bad one in the bunch. Nice wine, band and dancers gave a little slice of authentic Spain to the evening. Prices were very reasonable for this upscale restaurant in the heart of the prime shopping district of Chicago.

We celebrated my husband's 50th birthday at Emilio's (after returning from a trip to Spain) and can't thank them enough for a perfect experience! The service was outstanding, the atmosphere was light and festive, and the food delicious. Emilio himself stopped by our table to wish my husband a happy birthday and chat a bit. Maryann helped me pre-order and Anna, our server, was delightful. Great everything!

Very flavorful tapas; my husband, who is never easily impressed, proclaimed it extraordinary. Highly recommend.

We used to frequent Emilio's prior to moving out of state. Our recent return for a meal did not disappoint. The food is as we remembered - fresh, nicely prepared and flavorful. The atmosphere is colorful and warm. The staff are very helpful if you are new to tapas. Highly recommend.
