El Pulpo is, by far, one of the best restaurants we have eaten in! Everything was fresh, perfectly prepared and delicious! This restaurant should be considered for a James Beard award or a Michelin Star! The servers could not have been friendlier or more professional. This is our go to place to celebrate family and friends!

Just had dinner at El Pulpo, Southington .... amazing meal. Complex tastes that rattled my receptors ...a savory seafood, saffron spiked, sauce as fresh and welcomed as a new dawn. (Wish I asked for a wedge of lime). Wow, I was overwhelmed. The waitstaff, Marlaw and Jennifer were all one would wish for. Marlaw was knowledgeable about every recipe nuance and a pleasant conversationist.
We are from Saratoga Springs, NY where fine food abounds and had to travel all the way to Southington to experience this culinary euphoria.

Had dinner at El Pulpo for the first time on Saturday. Table was ready when we arrived ad our waitress was over very quickly after we were seated. She explained the specials for the night, and then took our drink order. The entire evening was fantastic. Service was excellent, food was outstanding and we never felt rushed. I highly recommend this restaurant and we will definitely be back!
