Special restaurant, faithful
Special restaurant, faithful to the Spanish tapa tradition. Only problem is that some of the tables are too small to hold all of the delicious food. I will be back.

What a great place. The food
What a great place. The food was good and the ambiance was nice. You are not rushed in nor out. We wanted topas food and that is what we got. Good Topas...

Tasty treats at Pinxto
Although the name may be Basque, the tapas are Spanish--some expected, some unusual. Try the lamb skewers, served in a parfait glass with couscous, yogurt and mint. Sardine on toast was pickly and delicious, and the two-color beet salad with fresh mint was refreshing. A real find, and we look forward to trying their related restaurants in Portland.

Excellent and unique tapas and we were able to hear ourselves talk!

We were so pleased with our visit to Pintxo. The tapas was absolutely wonderful. Great food that our friends who had recently visit Spain said matched some of the best Tapas they had there. This was our first time but certainly not our last.

Great spot in the heart of Belltown
The owners are right there seeing that everything is served beautifully.
The tapas are authentic, delicious and varied.
The outside dining is perfect ( with heat lamps).
We can't wait to go back.

Bachelorette Dinner Success!
Pintxo was incredibly accommodating of our 11 person group - we were celebrating a Bachelorette party with a classy dinner out and that's exactly what we got! The food was great and our server was wonderful; she even made sure Rio help us after out individual tabs before we started, and went the extra mile by arranging a table for us at Clever Bottle across the street when we mentioned we'd be stopping for a nightcap after our meal. Fantastic experience, thank you Pintxo!

Pintxo is a gem.
This was a blind date and couldn't have been more perfect. The staff was more than helpful at recommending from the menu and the food is really fantastic. The bar has a remarkable variety of unique drinks. Highly recommended.

Love it, still my favroite!
This time we were there, has been better that ever, the food was superb!!! Just as I remember it taste back in Spain, service was fantastic, I felt happy and satisfied, this is my favorite place in town and I hope they keep up with the good work!

After reading mixed reviews I was going into dinner at Pintxo with an open mind. Overall, I would say my group of 7 friends and I had a great experience. Our table was ready for us when we go there. The restaurant was well decorated with some cool art and there was overall good ambiance. We didn't sit on the outdoor porch but it looked unique and cozy if you are with a small group or on a date. Our waitress was quite exceptional and helpful. The food was all very good. I have only had tapas at 2 other restaurants in Seattle and this was my favorite so far. I have nothing bad to say about the experience, I would go back.

Pintxo tapas bueno
I am from out of town and was looking for a tapas restaurant. Google found Pintxo for me and it was a great experience. The food was a bit exotic and it was all tasty. I brought my wife and 16yr old (very mature) daughter and they enjoyed it as well. The drinks were great and the ambiance of the alleyway seating was neat. You could have been setting in Spain.
We were greeted as soon as we entered (6:45pm) by the chefs and a member of the wait staff. The server has a beautiful young lady with a "punkish" haircut. She provided a pleasant experience for us and didn't fulfill any stereotypes about being careless with her customer service despite her independent demeanor.

Fabulous all around!
You can certainly expect to have a great experience at Pintxo, I absolutely loved every plate we ordered and they provided attentive service in a casual and intimate setting. We spent more time talking about how much we liked the food during dinner than anything else and continued to talk about it into the next day with our friends. Definitely need to check this one out!

Pintxo - keeps getting better!
We live in Belltown, and have visited Pintxo numerous times since they first opened several years ago, and they just keep getting better. On Tuesday evening, the cooks at Pintxo cooked a massive paella outdoors on the Second Avenue sidewalk using a large gas burner. Besides the spectacle, and the pungent flavors spreading up the Ave, it tasted really, really wonderful. It came ready at 7 PM, and as we had just about finished dinner, we had a half serving to see if the flavors
You have to eat at Pintxo - it's the best little tapas place in Belltown - small, friendly, unpretensious, great value. And with owners who know how to choose their chefs and their menus and their inexpensive wines and sherrys.

Great but Not Excellent
It is nice to have a tapas bar in Seattle that can take you back to Spain. However in Spain, most people don't hang around for hours, they usually move around to others so they can sample the food , drink and scene. But this is Seattle and the small dining room seems to always be full with long waits for a table. This visit we made a reservation. The service was good but I felt the server was going through motions and not really connecting with the customers. The food however has improved but they had ran out of some items we ordered. Overall, we will be back because I our experience improves with each visit.

If you've been to Pintxo and
If you've been to Pintxo and never made it to the back patio, it's like an entirely new experience. Small, urban feeling, twinkle lights, nice white canopy covering, and heat lamps. And none of the smoke that always seems to hover over the main dining room. The food was great - especially the mini chorozios and the salad dressed w/ pesto vinaigrette. Portions are small - 2 of us had mini smokeys, salad, cauliflower, bacon wrapped dates, meatballs and still ate hotdogs at midnight :-/
Our server was also lovely. Cannot speak for the entire staff, but could not have been better or more friendly.

One of my favorite places
One of my favorite places in Belltown to eat. Having been to Barcelona, Pintxos helps my wife and I relive this memorable trip. If you're a foodie...this place is for you.

This is an outstanding tapas
This is an outstanding tapas bar! The food combinations that had were out of this world! Duck confit, acorn squash with chanterelle mushrooms! This was my husbands first time to a tapas bar and he was thoroughly impressed! I would came back in a heart beat. The wait staff was super friendly and fast!

Tapas == good
The food is excellent. The space is very small, so if you want a table, get reservations. My wife was happy that one of the tapas available was salt cod, a Portuguese dish, that is difficult to find in the NW.

Perfect Seattle Charm
Although my first impression for a dinner location for my 17 yr anniversary was that it was a little too casual for such a milestone, but Pintxo was exactly what I love about Seattle! The outdoor area was simply charming with the hanging lights, candles and brick exterior. This restaurant does impressive work with such a small kitchen to work with. The bacon wrapped dates were so good, I ordered another plate as "dessert". For such a small space, this restaurant runs seemlessly by all who work there and you don't feel like you are on top of other diners, but it is cozy. This is by far my favorite tapas restaurant I have found in the area. Kudos Pintxo team, you have found a fan! I will definately be returning again! Thank you much!

Small place, but yummy
The food was very good for a tapas bar. The restaurant itself is very small, maybe 10 tables total, all 2-tops. Reservations highly suggested. They only had 1 server and the restaurant was full so the service was a little slow. The tables are right on top of each other so it felt like we were intruding on our neighbors' dates around us. Food was served very hot and very delicious!
