Paella not quite as good as last time we dined there.
Certainly would return. Reasonably priced for quality of food they are serving.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough it's a bit cramped,Although it's a bit cramped, had a party of 6 here on a Friday night. My only 2 complaints are that it was really warm inside the restaurant and that the table was a little cramped for everyone's legs. Otherwise it was amazing, great food, and friendly service.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI simply love Socarrat paella;I simply love Socarrat paella; I tried also the other locations in the City, I think this location I is the best one!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been to Socarrat NolitaI've been to Socarrat Nolita a number of times and every time the service is attentive and friendly, and more importantly the food is consistently good.

The crispy rice on the bottom of the pan is the best part!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent wine selectionsExcellent wine selections fom Spain. Recommendations were spot on. Food was fresh and flavorful. The paellas are spectacularly good. Reasonable options or vegetarians as well.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe absolutely loved Socarrat.We absolutely loved Socarrat. We are fans of paella and chose this restaurant to celebrate my sisters 21st birthday. The ambience was great. The restaurant was decorated beautifully and the music and lighting made you feel like you were possibly in Spain. Our server was impeccable. He was hilarious, welcoming & gave great recommendations for the entrees as we had never ate there before. The food was also mesmerizing. The presentation was beautiful & the meal was authentic & delicious. I would highly recommend the paella carne. We will definitely come back here.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe tapas were so deliciousThe tapas were so delicious that we just feasted on those and never ordered paella! The eggplant and the pork belly were fantastic, and all the others we tried - including garlic shrimps, mushroom croquettes, Catalan sausage and Spanish hams - were very good. Very friendly service in charming (if tight) quarters with a small but lively bar.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good restaurant! FoodVery good restaurant! Food is excellent and the servers make great recommendations. However, the restaurant is very small. My BF and I were sat at a communal table. Now, I'm not too opposed to communal tables, but I do prefer having our separate seating. BUT, they crammed the communal table so tightly that it was very intrusive and awkward. You were almost touching both people on either side of you and there was not enough space at all. I was very displeased by that. Once one party got up and left, we were able to spread out a little and felt more comfortable. I'm not sure if you can request a private table or not, but I would def try and ask. All in all, the food makes up for a lot of it!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always love going backWe always love going back to Socarrat. The food is ALWAYS superb and the service is great too.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy to go back here!Everything was great, definitely good to go with at least 4 people so you can get the tapas and still have room to enjoy a Paella- which was huge and delicious.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
