It was restaurant week and they offered four courses for $35. The portions are sizable and we could not eat every plate. The corn soup was excellent. The tortilla soup was very good. The crusted salmon was very good. Forget the cod. I sent it back. The pork empenada was overcooked as was the short ribs. The carrot cake looked... More

I had a business lunch here. They had traditional food on the lunch menu - but they had different versions of the traditional sandwiches. I had the grilled chicken sandwich and it was "eye popping" good. Instead of fries, they featured patatas bravas - it was a great switch up. I also had the soup of the day it was... More

We had a nice bottle of wine and nine small plates for six diners. We had planned on ordering two each, but decided to pause at nine to see how it went. We were very pleased by both the quality and quantRity of our selections. Ranazul has a very nice atmosphere and service was excellent. Parking was convenient and free.... More

A tapas restaurant but not, we are very used to tapas bars in Spain, well this is very different but along the same lines. You can select many small bites to share with your table and then just keep topping them up until you are all done. But rather than a bar atmosphere that you would get in Spain this... More

Been there several times as I work in the neighborhood. Each time I visit, I suddenly remember why I dislike this place. 1. Happy Hour drinks are only served at the bar and if you happen to be eating dinner and ask your waiter about it he/she suggests you get your own drinks. Thus, for the 3rd time in a... More

Five Stars Squared (twice) out of Five Stars. Go Ahead and Treat Yourself at RANAZUL on a SUNDAY NIGHT. BRUCE CASTEEL, Classical Guitarist Extraordinaire, performs Sunday's after 630pm. We highly recommend our favorite Hot & Cold Tapas: Salmon Medallion, Salmon Avocado Sushi, Citrus or Pumpkin Salad, and XY ZIN Vino Tinto. It's a Magical Combination of Food, Wine & Music.

Best restaurant in Maple Lawn! The service and food are both amazing. Even when the restaurant is crowded they have good service.

We went to this restaurant on a Monday evening, not knowing anything about it. It wasn't very crowded at the time, and we thought we would try it out. The waiter, Jorge, was very friendly, and described the dishes perfectly. There were four of us, and we all ordered something different. I decided not to get tapas, but instead ordered... More

We have been regulars at Ranazul for years. I usually have the seafood, with my favorites being the tequila shrimp, crab orzo, salmon medallions, and scallops. I can also recommend the filet and lamb. The dishes are a little too complex for our kids, but you can order a steak or shrimp tapa plain with rice and vegetables for them.... More
