Perennially popular, this always-busy Spanish restaurant has been a Baltimore institution for over 30 years. – The Scene
Whitewashed brick walls, white tablecloths and soft lighting lend a serene touch to this cozy labyrinth of subterranean dining rooms. Brightly colored Spanish pottery adorns the walls and most of the tables in the form of Sangria pitchers.

The Food
Generously portioned, exquisitely presented entrees range from juicy sole sauteed with bananas and covered in hollandaise sauce to veal medallions simmered in a sweet, creamy port sauce. Tio Pepe's filet mignon is 3 inches thick, served with a savory bearnaise sauce and accompanied by delicious side items. The star of the show is the paella a la Valenciana para dos (for two), an authentic Spanish dish with chunks of lobster, shrimp, mussels, clams, veal, chorizo and chicken in fragrant saffron rice. Try the popular pine nut cake-roll for dessert, one of several lighter-than-air, whipped cream-based concoctions.

Never again!! – Having had a nice experience at this restaurant years ago, my partner and I thought to impress our friends from Germany with a meal here. What a mistake! Despite having made reservations, we waited nearly an hour in a cramped noisy entry. The food was fair at best and the service terrible--and all at a very steep price. A dim and noisy dining room to boot.

Great Food, BUT... – Crowded and noisy. A hang out for the well-to-do. Definitely not the place for a romantic meal.

Great food for a perfect evening. – Often before symphony concerts I dine with friends or family at Tio Pepe, and I've never been disappointed! The food is outstanding, the service tremendous. I can only fault the price, but a great dining experience comes with a price: a price that I will continue to gladly pay.

Not for the impatient or claustraphobe – Tiny, smoky entryway where you wait to be seated, and boy, will you wait. On weekends often 60-90 minutes after your reservation. Several of the seating areas are in very cramped sections of this below grade whitewashed plaster wall catacomb. Can't get out of your seat if the desert cart is nearby. Food is hit or miss. Have had great and mediocre. There are many finer places in town at less cost with higher quality food and more friendly service.

Niranjan S. Sammi – I have travelled and dined in 42 states out of 50 and nations of Europe, middle east and Asia. Dined last night with wife at this restaurant. My opinion:

Appetizer and wine were perfect, entres & desert were far below average [ chichen with skin on was a punishment to palate and eyes ] and prices were exorbitant. My Spanish knowledge is very poor but rude comments can come thru like their frozen butter through stale bread. Baltimore deserves better.

Never a bad meal – I have eaten here for the page 25 plus years and have never had a bad meal.

Sometimes the service will lag, but if you have ordered the pitcher of sangria, why hurry.

The steak Toledo, the salmon, all great.

For dessert, there is always the pine nut cake.

ONE OF THE BEST – Dining at many restaurants in Baltimore, I always find myself back at Tio Pepe for a fabulous dinner. The quiet and elegant atmosphere is a must when dining for two or on a special occasion with a larger group. The food is excellent and any meal is perfect with a glass of thier famous sangria. I just adore this restaurant
