Tapeo Restaurant and Tapas Bar
Delicious and enjoyableEvery dish we tried was excellent, including the paellas valenciana. Worked very well as a setting for romantic dinner for two. Servers were friendly, and attentive without being pushy. Not cheap but we felt the prices and quality were well matched.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding menu, great atmosphereFood was excellent, and both my date and I had great wine over creative plates.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMfun place, good tapasI've eaten at Tapeo twice and enjoyed it both times. For atmosphere, I like the upstairs a little better for being more open with better light. The menu isn't particularly extensive for a tapas restaurant, and I wouldn't mind a few more vegetable dishes, but the standard Spanish tapas are there, and everything I sampled was good. The service was friendly and efficient, and the food is reasonably priced.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOutdoor dining - early eveningA very good tapas bar. Four of us had eight tapas and a bottle of Rioja. Several of the tapas were ones we hadn't tried before and seven of the eight were excellent - thel last one only so-so. Of course, sitting outdoors and watching the Newbury street scene is lots of fun and not too noisy except for a few obnoxiously loud motorcycles. Service was relaxed but not overly so and very friendly. Highly recommend for a nice summer night. We went early (5 PM) with reservations - seated immediately.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMfantastic tapas!I love this restaurant and find myself returning consistently when I return to Boston, even when I feel I should try something new! The food is wonderful and I am always happier trying many small dishes than having one large plate before me. Diverse options, fair pricing, delicious food! I have been going to Tapeo and before that, Dali, for many years, beginning in the 90's (if I recall).5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and friendly serviceEnjoyed our dinner at Tapeo. The tapas was great, priced a little high but it was good. The view from upstairs overlooking Newbury is great.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe continue to come back toWe continue to come back to Tapeo!! We make it a point to share this gem with friends that have not experienced the restaurant. It is great getting such a positive reaction to all the tapas selections for those new diners. The stuffed squid with black ink is incredible!! Service, as always, was friendly, patient and informative. Never feel we are being rushed. And the Sangria always keeps everyone smiling!! Thanks for ANOTHER great dining experience.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden Gem in Back BayAlthough we were off to rough start in the beginning (we had made a reservation for 8:30pm and weren't seated until around 9:15pm), the service and amazing food more than made up for it! Not to mention a round of sangria free of charge! The food was absolutely delicious, and it was wonderful getting to try so many different dishes for a reasonable price. I was with a group of 6 people, and were all able to converse freely and easily with one another since the space was well organized for all group types. Scrumptious food, tasty sangria, great ambiance, perfect, relaxing setting for a Friday night outing! Or any time really. Enjoy!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was absolutely fantastic.The food was absolutely fantastic. We were lucky enough to order their smokey seafood paella and it was a treat!!!
The tapas before the paella were delicious as well. The battered strawberries were incredible and lighter than I anticipated. My husband doesn't usually sing the praises of the meal while we are still in the restaurant but he couldn't help himself! So grateful to have discovered this fun, delicious and authentic tapas restaurant in Boston in one of it's poshest neighborhoods.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for restaurant week andWent for restaurant week and though food was delicious, did not leave there full.

A great find on Newbury St. All dinners should be like the one I had at this restaurant.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for my birthday withWent for my birthday with 5 other friends during Restauarnt Week. Thankfully not too crowded or loud. Lots of interesting food options, and the small plates allowed for trying new things. The service was good until the end when it took a long time to order and receive dessert. But all the food was delicious and everyone had a good time. Nice place.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat suggestion from a friendGreat suggestion from a friend who lived in boston for a while. The tapas and atmosphere did not disappoint, even after she raved about them for weeks before we came to boston. Would recomend to anyone without hesitation.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI couldn't of asked for aI couldn't of asked for a better experience. The food was great along with some of the best cocktails I've had in awhile. I enjoyed the variety and can tell mixology is one of the great things about this restaurant.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA must for Spanish food loversGreat Spanish food and wine - an authentic experience. We eat here whenever in Boston. We tend to stick with the chorizo, goat cheese, jamon, and torta. I had been telling our friends about the spectacular garlicky chicken but, it turns out that the original authentic-tasting recipe has been replaced by a sweet and sour chicken recipe better suited to a Panda Express. Still, there are plenty of items to love on the menu so we will be back!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMy first time here. I reallyMy first time here. I really enjoyed all the menu items I ordered. I got 3 different tapas plates. Service was friendly and the food came quickly from the kitchen despite the place being very busy. Definitely would go back to try a different selection of small plates. Quick stop for some good food and drinks.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
