The Tasting Room Wine & Tapas
Date Night At The Tasting RoomEven with the changing menu the food was great and the service top notch.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNot to be missedAlthough noted for their tapas menu, the four course chef's tasting is a good value, even though they have raised the price to $48 w/out the wine pairings. Unlike many other chef tastings we have done, we did not leave hungry. Wine pairings were very interesting. One of the best restaurants in St. Augustine.
Contrary to some prior posts, we did not find the service to be particularly slow, although it was a Sunday night and the restaurant was busy but not crowded.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMTasting Room, St. Augustine OasisThe Tasting Room has wonderful tapas in a charming courtyard that's an oasis in the center of the tourist bustle in St. Augustine.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA gem!!

We will most definitely return the next time we visit St Augustine4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentThe food was delicious and was perfect weather to eat outside. Will definitely be making trips back for dinner.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Terribly SlowAnother St. Augustine restaurant with extremely slow service. The server was pleasant and attentive, but the kitchen was dreadfully slow. Had we not spent over half an hour between our first and second Tapas, I would have rated this restaurant perfect. The food was excellent. The wine list was excellent. The quaint little courtyard was delightful for lunch. The wine pairing with desert was right on. But why is every good restaurant in St. Augustine so slow?4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Spanish-inspired foodWe have eaten here several times, and the meals have been consistently excellent. Each course consists of a nice variety of textures and flavors.
The menu includes a couple dozen tapas, a good variety of main courses, and 4-course tasting menus, which can be ordered with paired wines.
The wine list is huge, with tasting glasses (2 oz.) at $3-5, regular glasses (6 oz.) averaging about $10, and a large number of full bottles from throughout Spain and the rest of the world. The serving staff are very knowledgeable about the wines that they serve, and have made excellent recommendations for wines that pair well with each plate.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe prix fixe four-courseThe prix fixe four-course menu was excellent with reasonable sized portions. Great wine list with many by-glass choices. The low-key guitar/vocal music was entertaining and non-intrusive--just the right background.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe tapas were excellent.The tapas were excellent. Their wine list was substantial. The couple playing spanish music on their guitars made for a special evening. I highly recommend this restaurant.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe mussels are a must! PassThe mussels are a must! Pass on the shrimp though, mushy and bland.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMuy BuenoThis is an outstanding restaurant in a town with few outstanding options. Having lived in Spain, I appreciate good tapas, and these are excellent; inventive while respectful of tradition. Service is very good, courtyard pleasant,wine list eclectic. A delightful, fairly priced evening that those who appreciate authentic tapas will appreciate. If your idea of a good dinner is meat and potatoes, this isn't for you.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBest scallops I have had inBest scallops I have had in a very long time, very attentive staff. Great place.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecialWe cannot say enough good things about this place. We had the cold meat tray for tapas, followed by spinich empanadas. His skirt steak with frites and chimichurri was excellent as was my hearty portion of butternut squash risotto. Highly recommend this place over many others in Old Town.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMwe dined w/ a party of 5 andwe dined w/ a party of 5 and ordered rounds of tapas so everyone could savor all of the tastes that were provided that night.great way to eat !!the wines were great but our nonwine drinker had to go across the street to get a gin and tonic !! the music was a great addition, but a little too loud for normal indoor conversation.we will return to taste all the tapas that we missed !!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMNice find.Very glad we found this. Have been traveling through St Augustine for years and finally found a place we will visit every time we return. Exceptional!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLive Music, Big TapasOverall, a great place, with live music and some creative tapas. Most of the food was very good, with a few near misses, but they get credit for departing from the standard tapas menu. The only drawback is that the tapas are unusually large, so two people can only share two or three, maybe four at the most if you're really hungry. Prompt, almost rushed, service.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAuthentic and amazing flavors!!Authentic and amazing flavors!! Best sangria I've ever had!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dining experienceGreat food, excellent wine selection and wonderful service. Highly recommend!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA perfect dinner!The first course will take your breath away. But after you've finished dessert, you will marvel that the chef has repeatedly surpassed standards of excellence with each dish. You can have a lot of fun if you go on culinary adventures by means of the small plates. About the size of a plentiful, to-be-shared appetizer, each plate gives you an opportunity to try something really special. And the live guitarist playing in the main room was superb - not too loud, not hackneyed, and certainly not annoying. Instead, he was talented and multifaceted, playing different types of music seamlessly. Extraordinary food and music - does it get any better than this?2/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food and live musicWe love everything about this place. We took three friends -- their first time -- they've traveled widely and they were very impressed at the selection and the quality.1/2/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat live musicspectacular menu with a wide variety to tempt everyone!12/19/2012 12:00:00 AM
