  • Painstakingly PERFECT!!!!!
    Feast
    Dined on 9/12/2014
    Like a classic new york spot transplanted from the heart of Spain, this place was perfectly on point with every detail. A table for two, just myself and my wife on a casual saturday night out, yet the whole staff was waiting on us hand and foot as though we were Spanish royalty. The owner was,likewise, terrific!! Would go again any day of the week. How often in one meal do you get perfect pinxchos, poached egg with an intense corn concoction, melt in your mouth skate, as well as handmade in house lamb sausages, farmfresh everything from Union Square Greenmarket throughout and cheeses from heaven. Run, do not walk, and go immediately to dine here. You will bot regret it unless you have had all of your senses and faculties surgically removed.

    Delicious food, attractive space, attentive and personable service. Tasting menu is a deal. The back room reverberates with every conversation, which after a glass or two for each diner present is unpleasant. Would sit up front next time.

    Owner/chef Jonah Miller gets everything right at this little piece of Spain in the East Village! The choice of Spanish wines from the Albarino to the Tempranillo is excellent, and his ever-changing tasting menu really demonstrates his knowledge of Spanish tapas and cuisine. For a quick trip to Spain, head to Huertas immediately!

    In a food scene hurtling toward fusion, foam and wretched excess, Huertas is doing something much simpler and much more difficult--crafting perfect bites, one after another, out of Basque food traditions and pristine local ingredients. It takes great attention to detail, great technique in the kitchen...and they're doing it at a terrific price point.

    A nice Spanish feel in NY. Menu del dia was very good and the staff was very friendly and accommodative. The check feels a little expensive for the surroundings (especially if you get a bottle of wine) but I think the food is worth it.

    Huertas serves a Basque themed menu and they do it really well. The food is delicious across the board - the pan con tomato with a jamon dressing stood out to me as did a veal breast. Staff is friendly and knowledgable about the cuisine. It's definitely worth a visit - I'll be back for dinner and for drinks and small bites at the bar.

    Celebrated a friend's birthday at Huertas. Each person at the table had specific dietary restrictions and the restaurant could not have been more accomodating! Loved the format of the set menu. Every item was delicious, from the amuse bouche to the desserts. The finish of marcona almonds and dark chocolate was so great!

    Plain and simple: this is not a Spanish restaurant. Is not terrible, don’t get me wrong! The food is good, the menu attractive, and some of the dishes brilliantly executed. Maybe pinchos at the bar could be a better experience as the vermouth, sider and wines list is quite cool

    Terrific new place offers 2 kinds of dining and imbibing. Upfront, a comfortable bar section offering passed pintxos, tapas typical of Basque Spain, including anchovies and peppers, lamb sausage, octopus, cod cheeks and house-made duck prosciutto. Spanish hard cider and house-made vermouth are great starters. For finer dining, reserve in the back room for a 4-course menu del dia, available with wine pairings. Main courses include trout roasted in a wood-burning oven, suckling pig, and a delicious mushroom and rice dish served baked in a ramekin. For dessert, a strawberry-rhubarb empanada, a Spanish version of creme brûlée, churros & chocolate, and a cheese course with fresh Spanish cheeses marcona almonds and whipped honey. Muy autenico!

    really great meal! I liked the ambiance in the bar up front better than the back room for the full dinner menu, but we have the prix fixe and enjoyed every bite. It was just the right amount of food for me (but I am a light eater.) I would definitely go back and want to try the pinxtos at the bar for sure!!

Was burned and over doused with vinegar. Fish was undercooked And a glass of sherry was 11 dollars that is what a whole bottle cost at retail! Great idea but they need work

    Space was quite interesting. Loved the bar area and dining area. Prix Fixe dinner was ok, but I don;t feel there was a lot of value in the menu. Wine Pairing was nice except the pairing with the fish course did not work at all(in my opinion) Sommelier was very nice and informative on the Wines, Beers, and Ciders. We would go back and sit at the bar for the a la carte menu.

    Beautiful interior to the space. Great place to meet friends and have a few pintxos over drinks. While the food was delicious, the pre-fixe style dinner menu in the back is a bit limiting. Wonderfully friendly staff who are rightly proud of their restaurant. Thanks for a wonderful meal! Highlights were the cod with beets, mini-paella and the mushrooms!

    Huertas old wood bar with fine wine/beer lists and exceptional vermouth concoction is a fun place to hang out, drink with buddies and have a few tasty pintxos. The interior is beautiful. The four-course prix fixe dinner served in the backroom (with a classic lower east side tenement backyard view) or booths next to the open kitchen, has authentic northern Spain specialties and is a foodie's delight. Tilefish with a flavor of smoked garlic was wonderful. Worked to get every lick of the chocolate sauce with light goat cheese topping and nougat for desert.
