    this place is just so-so. Nothing special at all. Except that the waitress poured sangria on my foot, on the table... And then dropped silverware on me. Food is just ok, service is remarkable. Really remarkable. Not going back.

    Good Food. Friendly staff, Unhurried yet attentive service. We were a group of 7 with a 1 yr old. Everyone was accommodating and efficient. Would definitely recommend for pre- theatre dinner at, best of all, a VERY reasonable price. Good Value.

    Depending on the time/day (e.g. weekend evenings) it may be best to arrive close to your reservation times as the bar gets crowded and you'd be hard pressed to grab a seat at the bar. The food was delicious, especially the paella. In my opinion, the food isn't prepared in traditional tapas style, the flavors are very heavy but tasty.

    3 years ago we had two outstanding dinners at Sangria 46 when visiting NY on vacation. This time the paella was subpar with tough clams and mussels. The chicken cordon bleu tapa was over cooked and tough. The steak was very good and strawberry melon sangria was fun and exciting. Based on the outstanding dinners we had 3 years ago, disappointing.

    My friend, Madeline, and I go to dinner & theater about once a month.We end up in the same two restaurants.Last night, we decided to try something different."Sangria 46" is a small, bright place, that could easily be in Spain.You sort of expect someone with castanets to come out dancing.The food is delicious, the staff conscientious without being over-bearing.I never had to ask for water, as my glass was filled as soon as it emptied.Madeline and I shared a tapas plate of asparagus/spinach with melted cheese on top-deelicious!Then we each had mariscada (Spanish boulliabaisse), with every kind of shell-fish in a broth, served with a side of rice and vegetables.Mine was in wine sauce, Madeline's diablo (very hot).Fabulous food, best sangria!!

    Because we were going to theater, we did not partake of the Sangria which I remember was delicious from my previous time. Although it is quite noisy, especially when there are groups around you, the variety of tapas are a delicious wave of delight over your taste buds. A favorite is the dates wrapped in bacon. The asparagus and spinach with melted mozzarella invited us to plunge in. The empanadas (our choice of chicken) had a little bit of kick to it. The only disappointing was the grilled octopus and potato . . . but I must admit I'm not a big fan of octopus. Still want to return to try some of the many other tapas.

    Everything we ate or drank was excellent (3 kinds of tapas--pork, eggplant and scallops, paella, sangria, flan). The eggplant was the weakest dish, but still very tasty, if a bit bland. The service was appropriately friendly . At times, we needed to seek our waiter's attention, but this wasn't a deterrent to our wonderful meal in any way. We ate outside on the lovely backyard patio. The dining room looked fairly non-descript. They were very responsive about getting us out in time for our theater curtain and were kind enough to refrigerate our left-overs and let us pick them up after the show. Would eat here again without question and would highly recommend it. Terrific Spanish food in the Theater District.

    Tried to have dinner there on 10/18/2014. Had a reservation for 630pm, we were a bit early and seated promptly at 620pm. We had show tickets for 8pm and told our server this when we ordered. We ordered some basic things, it took 45 minutes to get some mushroom and empanada apps. Our waiter was nice trying to push the kitchen to speed things up. At 735PM still no main courses...the waiter tried once again and finally we had to leave without getting our food. Should it really take this long to get main courses, does the kitchen not know that 90% of people being served around this time have show tickets? Needless to say, not impressed with service offered...packed restaurant with countless tables scrambling to stuff in food quickly.

    I decided to bring my fiancee to this restaurant because we did not want a large meal since we were on our way to a Broadway show. Our reservation was for 6:30. We arrived at 6:20pm to let them know we were here and we'd wait. They seated us at 6:46PM. While seated, we were handed a menu and water almost immediately, and then they took our order at 7:10pm. We just ordered the Jalapeno poppers, stuffed yuka bites, and some tiny veggie dish. We didn't get our food until 15 of 8 , and it was cold! When the food arrived, I asked for the check so we can rush out since we had a show to catch. That took a while too. All in all, I do not think I would like to return here. Many other people seated too were complaining about the waits they had.

    We got to the restaurant early and were seated right away. Service was a little slow when we arrived even though the outdoor dining area was really the only thing full at that point. It seemed they were caught short staffed since it took a while to get drink orders in and to get the waiter's attention for additional drinks throughout the meal. Shortly after arriving the place was hopping and that is really when we felt the lack of attention. The food was good but if you like chorizo you have to get the chorizo tapas. That was excellent. We got paella and arroz con pollo for dinner but they were not as flavorful as I was hoping. Still good - not great- but not an expensive meal so I'd give them another try in hopes it was just a bad night.

    We went for a 6pm reservation. Got Sangria by 6.15. Got chips and a kind of salsa. Ordered from the pre-fixe. waited and waited and waited. Nothing arrived and because we had theatre tickets we left at 7.25 after two appetizers had just arrived, one cold the other burnt! The waiter just said they were "busy"!! Also it's so noisy you have to yell at each other to be heard. Never again.

    We were waited on quickly, the pitcher of Sangria arrived quickly and then nothing. 40 minutes from the time we sat down I had to go find our waiter to ask where our tapas were. One person had ordered a tapa as well as a main entree and did not want both coming out at the same time. Received a bit of a song and dance but the food started arriving. Nothing great but acceptable, empanadas, shrimp, portobello mushroom stuffed. Sent the quinoa salad back, way too much balsamic. Entree of chicken and risotto however was very good. Waiters were nice. Would not return.

    Went for dinner after a broadway matinee. Will definitely go again. Lots of great tapas to choose from. The grilled octopus was especially good, and also the bacon-wrapped dates. Also had beef empanadas, which were very good as well. A small pitcher of sangria (about 3 and a half glasses) is the same price as two glasses, so get the small pitcher if you like sangria.

    Had never been to this restaurant before, but would definitely return. We were a group of 6 and we all enjoyed our meals. Some felt the dishes they had were a bit too spicy. But, overall we had a great time and found the menu choices interesting and different from our usual fare. We were pre-theater and the wait staff understood our needs. In fact, our waiter was quite entertaining. It was a beautiful day so we were able to sit outside in the garden with grapevines overhead. I recommend this restaurant highly!

We wanted to paint the city red and add some silver and gold glitter!!! One girlfriend visited before and raved about the sangria's and appetizers. We were not disappointed! The dinner and staff are now part of the rave! Daniele and Marisio made the night extra special! Super attentive and catering. The beautiful lady (did not get her name) manager or hostess was also attentive and made sure we had a great time. I wish we were there now!!! We felt like family! Safe and clean environment! We left full of great good, drinks and laughs!!! Loved it! Sangria 46 was the best part of our special night!!!

    Mid-week Girls' Night Out and it was great; don't be deceived by the exterior view from the street- this place is huge with a nice, warm feel and even outdoor garden seating in the back! It wasn't overcrowded, would be great for a large group or for a cozy date. Of course, the most important thing - the Sangrias were great - esp. the strawberry & peach cava - whhaaaaaaaaat?!?!?! We had tapas - I liked the chicken empanadas (a bit on the dry side but flavorful nonetheless), croquetas de yuca with codfish and bacon-wrapped dates. The bartender Mauricio is a dream - in fact everyone was uber friendly and helpful. We weren't rushed at all (were there for almost five hours (!)) And reasonable prices to boot. I can't wait to go back!

    Food and ambience were great. Service was poor. Server came 3 times to ask a question about drink preference; took no notes of our order. Was very slow in getting our food despite our telling her we had a show to see. Paid cash since I knew the process to use my credit card would be forever. Had to request utensils for our entrée since it was removed when our appetizer plates were taken away. If you are not in any hurry, this is the place for delicious food!
