  • "The food was very good and arrived in a timely manner. It was earlier in the evening, but it was quiet but lively. The wait staff was exceptionally helpful and attentive. We will definitely return and would like to bring a small group to enhance the experience."

  • "Great fun for groups with small plate tapas you can easily share. Lots of variety makes it easy for everyone to find something they like. Full dinners too. Ok wine list and excellent bourbon choices. Good service and nice decor."

  • "A friend had recommended Tapas a while back and we were feeling adventurous so we went. Our reservation was for late afternoon so we beat the Friday night crowd. We were pleased with the atmosphere and service - very friendly and attentive. My wife is vegetarian and she didn't lack for choices. I had the seafood paella. It was a bit on the dry and spicy side but still delicious. I like the fact that the bar and restaurant areas are on separate floors. By the time we left the dining area had filled up but the noise level was quite tolerable. All in all, an outstanding first experience. I'm a big proponent of downtown nightlife and Tapas is a wonderful addition to the landscape. We will be back!"

  • "I happen to find this place by accident. One of my techs from dialysis knows i liked to go to different place to try food and she mentioned this place. She said the fish tacos were a delight! It was everything and more than I expected it from this place. I would most definitely refer others to this restaurant for dining and a good time"

  • "I really like Tapas because it gives a fresh smooth latin taste to the area, which is growing incredibly young and trendy right now. I have been here twice now and left satisfied each time. The menu is easy to read and fits the part. I know its fairly new and just getting the name put out there, but i hope they start doing feature and special dishes soon! Being a chef and amature foodie, I'm on the look out for "Platos Especiales" every time i go out to eat. I did get the chance to order something I usually dont order for dinner though and it turned out to be very delicious! Honestly i recommend the paella! "Tapas" means "appetizers" in Spanish so keep that in mind when you go there. Good priced food, service and beautiful ambiance!"

  • "This place was better the first time. The empanadas were soggy, soup was delicious and chorizo was dry. Margarita shrimp was good. The coupon was suppose to be worth up to $59 of food. Since the waitress told us we couldn't order the two most expensive entrees there is no way that is the value of the coupon. Also, the waitress said she'd be nice since we had been patient waiting for our food and give a free dessert. It wasn't free, it came with the coupon deal. Maybe Sunday is not the best time to go."

  • "Our group of 4 visited Tapas 218 on Friday evening. The restaurant was not crowded, but there were several other tables of people and the lower dining room busy. The menu features a good variety of Spanish inspired dishes. All of the dishes were available in either the small (tapas) size or a larger full size. The prices are very reasonable. My sister-in-law who has celiac was able to eat almost anything on the menu with the exception of an item with a cream sauce and two items with flour tortillas. We all enjoyed our meals. The salads were very fresh. Most items come with potatoes, lemon rice or vegetables. We will be back again."

  • "This place was a gem. The service, the atmosphere and the food were great. I didn't know what to expect from Spanish cuisine but it was amazing. I had the Caprese Salad and the small filet (medium) with lemon rice and potatoes. It was all cooked perfectly and delicious. I highly recomment and can't wait to return."

  • "Since Tapas opened, my husband and I have been there four times and we absolutely love it. Each time we go, the waitresses seem so excited to help us find items that we will love. The atmosphere is great and all the people are so friendly. I do not drink alcohol so I can not speak to the bar aspect of the restaurant. We know that the owner also owns Basil, which is our absolute favorite restaurant because it has all of these wonderful qualities as well. (My stomach thinks Asian food trumps Spanish food but both restaurants are favorites of ours!)"

The owner even came over and greeted us and made sure throughout the evening that everything was okay! We recommend this place to everyone! TWO WORDS - FRIED OLIVES!!!"

  • "They have a great menu and everything we had was excellent with the exception of the Chorizo. I was expecting the Chorizo to be the best thing, but it tasted more like an italian hot sausage than chorizo. I especially liked the Ceviche and the Jalapeño/Goat Cheese/Red Pepper/Anchovy "popper"."

  • "Delicious entrees! We tried the fried olives, spinach artichoke dip, bruschetta, house salad and scallops dinner. Dessert was flan and churro which were excellent. The server suggested the churro--the flan was better! Everything was very fresh--house salad was impressive--fresh greens, goat cheese and homemade vinaigrette! My only suggestion is they could have done more to make an anniversary special. A drink, appetizer or dessert...just a little SOMETHING. We let them know in advance it was our first time dining there and our anniversary. It would have been a nice gesture as well as leaving a great impression on a new customer. Hopefully, they will use this suggestion as they attempt to attract loyal customers and friends. :)"

  • "First the food was good, well prepared, nicely plated and flavorful. I very impressed with the Bourbon selection - nearly 40 different varieties. The atmosphere was nice and fairly quiet, but there were not many people seated near us. I was disappointed with the scallpop and empanadas tapas. The menu said there were would be two scallops, and there were two pieces of toast with small slivers of scallop on them. Both pieces might have made one scallop. A bay scallop at that. Tasty but small. The empanadas were, because of the sauce they were served with, fairly soggy. And the filling was ground very fine. I doubt we'll return for dinner by ourselves but would probably recommend with a group where we were all ordering off the tapas menu."

  • "My family and I were looking for a new place to have dinner. We have eaten tapas in other cities before and enjoyed it so we decided to try Tapas 218. We were not disappointed. Everything from the server the wine list and the menu was outstanding. Our server was very helpful and courteous explaining the entire drink and food menu. We tried many small plates of a lot of selections from the menu and came away feeling satisfied. Good drinks, great food and outstanding desserts. We will be back soon and often with other friends and relatives. "

  • "We very rarely get to have girls night. We made a reservation just in case, but it wasn't busy and our table was roomy for 6, which doesn't always happen. Service was fantastic. We were even pains and asked for special martinis even though they had no martini list, and the waitress carried all 6 full martinis up the stairs from their amazing bar in the lower level. We all got different tapas and a few entrees to share and I can honestly say there wasn't one thing I didn't like.The Churros desserts were mouthwatering! The music sounded fabulous and the environment was very classy. The only negative thing I would say is that there was no sign outside or at the entrance telling you it was Tapas so it was slightly difficult to find.I'll be back"

  • "The food was adequate, but not great. The potatoes were very good. The rest- salad, french toast, bruschetta- was average, at best. It was more or less what you could get at any greasy spoon/lounge-style restaurant without the pretension. Most of the food was very salty. I do not recommend asking the bartenders about drinks; their choice in whiskeys was fairly poor. I've been twice with others who have had rave reviews about the scallops. Overall, nothing regrettable, but after two tries, I wouldn't go back. There is cheaper food and bars around which are just as good."

In the case of Tapas 218 we did just that! We will see you there soon. Great service, price and most importantly FLAVOR!!! "

  • "I was very excited to try this place after hearing a lot about it. Our table was in a weird section and every time the door opened we got a rush of cold air. We ordered the empanadas and ceviche for apps. I have had better empanadas which is disappointing since they are known for Spanish cuisine. I liked the ceviche but my boyfriend thought it was just okay. Our server recommended the scallops so we had them and the paella for dinner. The sauce and mushrooms with the scallops were great, but the scallops were just okay. The paella was okay but the mussels or oysters on it were disgusting. The red sangria was great and our server was very nice. But overall, would not go back. Very disappointed because it's a cute place."
