I love Tapas
A wonderful restaurant with the feel of a major "happening" city. One of my favorite places to meet friends and relatives. The other restaurant would be Mesa Modern Mexican in Easton. Another find and great city to see and try new places.

All Good News
Just delightful. Perfect front window table for two. Delicious cocktails with a punch. Very nice variety of small plates to share. Our waitress had her own suggestions which matched our palates exactly. Easy mid-week treat away from the kitchen! Every bit as good as the sister restaurant in Easton. We shall return!

So much effort...
The ambiance was a bit more crowded and noisy than I prefer, but that doesn't necessarily mean it was problematic. It is a very hip place and has a young crowd, but is sophisticated enough for a more mature palate. They try to put a lot of higher-quality ingredients into thoughtful and inventive dishes and it seems ideal for a group of a few friends or a double date wanting to try multiple shared plates. It is a tapas restaurant, after all.
I have a personal gripe with neophyte restaurants that try too hard to put in typical "foodie" ingredients without a lot of experimentation. Also, my vegetarian companion had a very limited selection, however, she thoroughly enjoyed her meal.

We came to Tapas to share in our daughters experience of her recent trip to Spain. Very nice to taste the foods of the country and feel a bit of the atmosphere.
Very convenient to make reservations.

Expensive for tapas
I do not have to pay for the complete cheese and only get 5 micro thin slices

The experience at Tapas On Main was very nice! Our server was very helpful and attentive. The food was really good, nicely Spanish; ethnic, but not trying too hard! We will surely go back and have recommended it to others already!

We are regulars at Tapas. It is always a delightful experience and the food is consistently good. No better place in Bethlehem for a glass of wine or a pitcher of Sangria.
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Comfortable, friendly and unique. A variety of foods.great Sangria. I would recommend the sampler. Far fetch from a Pennsylania diner. Highly recommend.

Great little restauran in Bethlehem
The food and service was terrific. The menu is full of incredible choices. We had a hard time selecting which tapas we wanted to try. The only negative was the noise level. The noise level made it almost impossible to have a conversation.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our group of 6 thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Interesting and unique menu. Large portions!

Great spot for drinks and
Great spot for drinks and a snack or a full meal. Blood Orange Berry Sangria is outta this world.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good food, service and drinks. Only negative were two noisy birthday parties that were too big/loud for such a small dining area.

Tapas served up the best blue crab croquettes and seafood paella of my life! Worth every penny.
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent, even during Musikfest
Went during Musikfest, which is a huge crowd of people all around the downtown Bethlehem area. Even so, the service was very good, the noise level was quite acceptable and the food was excellent!
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything about this restaurant was perfect. Great service, even better food. 5/5 - would recommend to everyone.

Spain in Bethlehem
Restaurant was fantastic. Great food. Server was knowledgeable and attentive. It did get a bit loud as the evening progressed (7:30 ish) and they were out of one of the Spanish beers ordered, but overall, it was a great dining experience.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
A friend and I visited Tapas on Main after hearing about it from a friend. What a great find! We sat at a table on the street to get the full sense of downtown Bethlehem. The food is fantastic and the sangria sampler is a great way to try different sangria creations from the bar. Danielle was spot on with her recommendatoins. The meat/cheese sampler is a nice way to start and we tried the scallops and the flanksteak flatbread. All were wonderful. We would definitely recommend this to any tapas fan.

Lovely but loud!
VegFest Food Week review. The ambiance was nice; soft light and a wall covered with bottles of wine - gotta love that! However, the tables were jammed very close to one another and the restaurant was VERY loud. The food was delish and the 3 courses were well timed. I had the warm meditation salad, it was light and had just enough flavor to still appreciate the taste of the veggies. My friend had a summer veg. salad, good but I won round 1. My second course was scallion pancake, a bit dry. My friend had zucchini cakes, delish, round 2 to her. For dessert we both enjoyed the peaches with pistachio nuts. A lovely light ending to our meal. A nice experience, great to order straight from the menu. The only downside was the noise/lack of privacy.

Tapa does it again! I wanted to try the new revamped menu I been hearing about! We started out with the datiles con tocino!! And a bandeja mixta..I have to tell you the fusion of flavors on the datiles will have you craving for more and more…but make sure you don’t stop there on the menu you must try the ravioles de setas if you love mushrooms this plate is a must try! I paired my meal with a glass on the Juan cava! So refreshing…then I finish it all up with an El Toro drink another cava sensation! The food, the ambient and service is what makes tapas so unique is the perfect combination you as a customer value in an establishment! Viva tapas on main! For a superb presence in our lovely downtown Bethlehem!

Celebrated my birthday there just the same as last year. Great food and can't wait to go back again.

I took my girlfriend there for her birthday. She used to live in Spain and loved the authenticity of the menu and the decor. Food and service were excellent

Came to celebrate a birthday with some friends and family. Great spot to relax and try something new!

Went here after reviewing some reviews, great food and excellent overall!!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was creative and tasty. The bacon wrapped dates were recommended as a tapas of choice that
Day and they were delicious . Main courses and desserts were equally as good. I would highly
Recommend this restaurant.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time there and would definitely go back. A very pleasant and relaxing experience in the early afternoon. Imagine it would be quite lively and fun in the evening!

Dinner before a show
My wife and I had never been to Bethlehem, PA before, but we had some friends in western New Jersey who had. This restaurant looked like an interesting choice before heading to a nearby burlesque show that evening. Tapas WAS an excellent choice! The service was excellent, the staff energetic, motivated and enthusiastic, and the food and drinks were terrific. We had six varieties of tapas, from fries to oil-marinated mushrooms to scallops, and left satisfied. Special praise for the mushroom soup, which was creamy, smooth and delicately flavored, and the scallops, which were tender and cooked to perfection. We'll be back!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great menu! Everything we ordered (there were 6 of us) was delicious. Of special note: mushroom soup and the scallops. The experience was wonderful. Wish we lived closer. We would become regulars.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food and Drink
We traveled from Bethlehem from New Jersey to see a concert at Lehigh University and found this place on Open Table. We like tapas, we like Sangria and were excited to try it.
After we sat, we had Hazelnut-Almond Sangria and it was incredible. for dinner, we had Chicken Croquettes, Crab Croquettes, Shrimp and garlic Sauce, Scallops with spiced ham and hummus. The waitress was excellent and brought out two plates at a time so we could enjoy each dish hot. Everything was phenomenal and was cooked to perfection.
At the end of the meal, my wife and I usually never get dessert, but we had churros. They came with a chocolate sauce and a cream sauce and all of it was great!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a wonderful dinner for
Had a wonderful dinner for my wife's birthday. Our server Matt was excellent and knowledgable about the menu and suggestions to pair it with. Everything was delicious and the sangria was awesome. Our entire group of six had a wonderful time and we will be back again.

Tapas on Main is always good!
4 of us had tapas on Sunday evening at Tapas on Main, it never fails to please. Very good service from our waitress, she was on the ball and attentive. Of course, the food was excellent - lamb meatballs, fillet steak, pesto hummus, french fries with cheese and garlic ( we had 2 of those), spicy shrimp it was all great. We even shared deserts, hot chocolate mousse and bread pudding. The check at the end was even reasonable - what more could one want!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sangria like Spain
This was my first time at Tapas on Main and what a surprise! The food was amazing, with tapas portions big enough to share with 4, even though there were only 2 of us. The service was fantastic - our server saw we were low on pita for the hummus and brought us warm ones from the oven, without any prompt from us. Finally, the Sangria - I haven't had Sangria like this since I was in Spain. What a great place!
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Was very surprised to find this place. Food was amazing and can not wait to go back !!
10/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
main street fave
Sangria is the popular choice at this spot. i highly recommend the blood orange berry. other favorites include their flatbreads and paella. excellent! mmmmmm
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
I loved this place!
The food was excellent. We tried a little of everything. The waiter was even better. If you choose to go, ask for Matt O. He made the experience more enjoyable. He knew everything about the menu, the chef, the food and wine. He gave recommendations that were outstanding. We will definitely be going back again.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always very good
Fantastic tapas offerings, great meat/cheese selections, fab sangria. Restaurant can be a bit too warm IMO and we hate the tightness of the banquette seating. If you can get one of the stand-alone 2- or 4-tops in the dining area, you'll be happier.

Tapas in Bethlehem, PA
Tapas on Main is an excellent local restaurant for experiencing authentic Spanish style dining. Their menu is varied with something for everyone - conservative and adventurous. The service is top rate. They have an extensive wine list, and also offer a good variety of very refreshing sangrias. I highly recommend trying this restaurant when in downtown Bethlehem.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our son goes to college in Easton and we were visiting him for the weekend. I'm so glad we ventured over to Bethlehem for lunch to find this gem of a restaurant. It was excellent in every way.

European Vibes at Tapas on Main
A wonderful little gem of a restaurant in downtown Bethlehem. The bar is always crowded and has a warm, cozy feel. For a lighter meal try their tapas plates; entrees offer generous portions. The food is extremely well prepared and tasty and the servers, staff are fun and friendly. The place really comes to life at night -- the ambiance is similar to that of a European bistro.

Busy but fun
This was my first time at a "tapas type" restaurant and I am glad I had a reservation. Tapas on Main was extremely overbooked and I still had to wait for my table about 20 minutes. The bar side was a bit noisy and packed but the restaurant side was nice. Tables were a little close but to accomodate the sheer number they spilt larger tables for more seating of couples.
The food itself, in the tapas style was out of this world and very tasty. I chose a Lamb Chop Tapas plate because it is was I order when available and I was not disappointed- it was prepared perfectly. The other sharable dishes ordered were dates, shrimp, and fries with garlic.Dessert was Flan and it was wonderul. I would recommend this restaurant for a casual experience.

Cute place in Bethlehem
The Lehigh Valley has cute and interesting places to eat! Came here for a date nite with my husband and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Great menu and the sangria sampler is really nice. The service was attentive as well. Highly recommend.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Took a date here and it was perfect as it tends to be. Started with a meat and cheese board then to garlic shrink and blue crab croquettes. Shrimp cooked perfect and crab was seasoned appropriately. Wine list seemed to be improved as well.

Tapas on Main was a wonderful
Tapas on Main was a wonderful experience as always and a great spot for groups. The dishes were all very good with special nod to the scallops and the crab croquettes. The sangria was excellent and reasonably priced. We will be back.
