  •   This was our first visit to Despensa.  We went on a Sunday afternoon around 2:30pm and there were only 2 other parties, Silvia was our waitress and she was wonderful. Silvia was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable, very sweet lady.
    For the appetizers we ordered the Carnitas Tacos, which were fantastic- they included 6 tortillas, lettuce, guac, beans, pico de gallo, shredded queso, and the shredded pork.
    We also ordered El Jibarito-Green plantain aranitas (5 ea) topped with ropa vieja stew

    For our entree we ordered Despensa Seafood Paella - For Two - this was great, it was a little heavy, but really tasty. Enough orzo for 4 people, but enough seafood for 2, as described.
    Dessert we got the churros and a couple of dessert shots.
    Sangria was perfection.

  •   Where do I begin. Our servers name, Sylvia... Amazing both in service and suggestions. I know my wines and she suggested an Argentinian wine that was fantastic beyond the Sauvignon Blanc I requested. The appetizers we chose were flavorful and very fresh. The side of
    Red beans we took to go and it isn't  the first time.
    Beyond that, we have a two month old and the restaurant overall had several families with the oldest being a four year old. It was awesome because I expressed that I was truly sorry when he cried out twice (2 months old) and didn't hear anything but awesome advise or 'we've been there'.  A lovely local experience.

  •   We were looking for something different to eat and looked to Yelp for help. We are so glad we tried Despensa. Ale (our server) greeted us and was very attentive and even a little funny. He recommended a few of the most popular dishes and they didn't disappoint. We had the bacon wrapped chicken breast and the seafood paella. Both were ridiculously good and full of flavor. As the appetizer we had the arañitas with the Ropa  Vieja which was also delicious. Not your typical ropa vieja from the Cuban restaurants.

    The customer service from Ale was exceptional.  He stopped by our table several times to make sure his recommendations were what we expected and if we were enjoying our meal.

    I highly recommend Despensa if you are looking for a great dining experience.

    We will definitely be back again!

  •   Ambiance is so nice, relaxing and welcoming. We received amazing service from Sylvia. She was extremely helpful and sweet, service done right! She also made a delicious sangria. They give you chips with a delicious queso sauce while you wait for you food which is always a plus. I had the picańa with asparagus and potatoes. The meat was tender and cooked perfectly how I asked it. Delicious. Totally recommend! Every restaurant that has been at this spot has for some reason closed down, hoping this is not the case with this one, because I for sure will be back.
