Diner Reviews
  • "We tried a few of the tapas and were not disappointed! Everything was fantastic. The server recommended ordering four dishes, and she was absolutely correct - we ordered three and they were so good we got one more! This place is a great find. real foodie-oriented menu with ridiculously awesome options. Love it."

  • "We wanted a neighborhood feel and this was perfect -- good place for a reasonably priced brunch with a friendly staff and good food in the East Village. The brunch menu provides a reasonable number of choices -- we had sliders, croque madame and waffles -- all good and nicely prepared. Only downside, not sure the AC was on or working, fortunately it wasn't a terribly hot day."

  • "We needed a place in this exact location so we took a chance and the food was tasty--my salad had a nice combination of ingredients! Everyone liked what they ordered. The place was cute/fun without going overboard on the whimsy."

  • "Had a great meal at Tink's. Three of us, ordered 6 dishes and shared, all were delicious and well prepared. Great beer menu also. We then shared 2 desserts, also yummy and the price was very reasonable for the quality. Place is small and got busy quickly, but at no time did we feel rushed. Would highly recommend this restaurant, hope they stay as unique and special as they are now."

  • "Discovered this little spot by accident and had a great meal for two. We went back this past Saturday night with another couple and enjoyed every ourselves tremendously. This is a small venue with excellent food and very friendly service. The dishes are made for sharing and the portions are generous. Outstanding selection of beers listed from lightest to darkest. Acceptable wine list with reasonable prices. Perfect for a date night out and quiet enough for conversation."

  • "We were there for brunch and the food for brunch was FANTASTIC. The service was terrific. This is a very small place, but didn't have any problems hearing my guests or didn't feel uncomfortable at all. Would highly recommend."

  • "What a delicious brunch spot. Make sure to get there early or make reservations if you want to get sat. Super tiny spot. Try the chicken and waffles. So good. And so affordable!"

  • "I visited Tink's for dinner on a Friday night with a group of friends; there were 5 of us. My sister had gone recently and said it was awesome. The food was delicious, everything was cooked to perfection. They also have a great selection of beers. It's a great place toggo with a group of people, although it is a tiny restaurant. The best part is that everything is small plates, so it's fun to order a bunch of things off their menu to share. The service was good, they have a very friendly and accomadating staff. The reason I give 3 stars for service is because my waiter had forgotten to put in one of my orders in and then charged us twice for something. He did apologize though and gave me a free mimosa to make up for it. I will back soon. "

  • "I love the idea of comfort food small plates to share, and Tink's did not disappoint. Four of us shared the pretzel-crusted chicken, mussels, beets, nachos, and beef sliders, and we were full after just those five plates (plus a beer each). It was all delicious (most especially the beets, chicken and sliders). The beer is served in mason jars and the ambiance is warm and cozy. (The only thing I'd request next time is that they turn off the TV in the back that was showing Guy Fieri's show -- that was weird/distracting and not in line with the style of the rest of the place.)"

  • "I had brunch here with two of friends, we all enjoyed and were very satisfied with what we ordered. The staff was also very courteous to us even though we were tardy for our reservation. One of my friends thought using a middle school book as a receipt holder was cute."

  • "The pretzel fried chicken was amazing. Will say that I went in a group with a friend who is basically vegan (no meat, doesn't like cheese) and it was difficult for them to find anything on the menu."

  • "This is a great place if you want to try something new or neighborhoody. The food is really great and a bit different from your normal small plates. Wine was half off when we went on a Wednesday, so that was a great bonus."

  • "The food was great, but heavy. The waiter recommended two dishes each, we felt super stuffed after. Would be fine with just one dish each I think."

  • "I went on a date here and we both had a really good time. The beer selection is fantastic, the service is awesome, and the food is really great too. If I had any complaint it's that the plates sizes are a little small but that in no way ruined our experience. I highly recommend this place."

  • "We were drawn to Tink's because it looked like a very cool, cozy little place with a good menu. Here is what we ordered: Disco is Dead -- Tater tots with duck gravy and cheese curd. It was pretty good. I would recommend it, but next time I go, I will probably try something else. Ricotta have Gnocci -- This was great. The gnocci was light and it was served in a great sauce that gave a fantastic aroma of truffle oil. Pretzel Crusted Fried Chicken - It was basically chicken fingers with a pretzel crust. It was perfectly done and was the highlight of the meal Shrimp & Grits -- The shimp was fresh and flavorful, and the grits has a great marscapone flavor."

  • "The food here was delicious. I love being able to share multiple small plates and this place is great for that. We ordered 6 things for 3 people and it was the perfect amount of food. My favorites were the gnocchi (actually the best gnocchi I've ever had), the chocolate mole pulled pork sliders and the pretzel crusted fried chicken. I didn't love the goat cheese and beet salad. I really like both beets and goat cheese but this salad just didn't compare to the rest of their food."

  • "Met up with 3 friends for dinner. We had a great time, sharing everything we ordered. The food was delicious. The restaurant is very small, but we did not feel at all rushed, which we really appreciated. We sat for a long time and ordered additional dishes after we placed our initial order. The restaurant is pretty noisy; not a good place for intimate conversation."

  • "What a surprise that in this hood and this tiny place they are pumping out some very creative and outstanding comfort food. We ordered 8 dishes and each one I would order again. Great beer list and friendly service. Was quite loud but with the size of the place that is to be expected. I would certainly return"

  • "I was disappointed that only wine and beer were available though the wines were actually quite nice and moderately priced. The food was delicious. The shrimp and grits is a MUST as is the Beet Salad. Our reservation was at 8:00 and we were able to converse but by 9 PM as the restaurant filled, the noise was deafening. I would definitely go here again but no later than a 7:00 reservation. Seems very popular with the 20 something crowd."

  • "Food is served tapa style. It's nice to try out different dishes, without feeling super full. I took a date here and we both had a great time. Food is priced well, but the wine is a bit overpriced. Overall, I would give it 4/5."

  • "We tried Tink's based on a beer-fanatic friend's recommendation. Very extensive and well-curated list of craft-beers -- BUT for us wine drinkers, there were only 3 California reds as a red wine option -- kind of inexcusable, considering the varied array of other domestic vineyards producing quality wines. Food-wise, we enjoyed: the duck gravy fries -- sort of like a twist on poutine. The pork belly was perfectly executed with a crispy skin and nice char. The tuna sliders were a miss, however. Quality of the tuna steak was lacking and not properly seasoned and the accompanying tangle of crunchy vegetables (zucchini, cucumber?) lacked salt and acidity."

  • "Nice little tapas-style sharing dishes. Fast service. Weird ambiance, though; I feel like the restaurant isn't sure what kind of restaurant it wants to be (e.g., Southern-style dishes, but the check is delivered in a "Goosebumps" book, and the layout is like a sushi place). Food was yummy and service was good. Not sure I'd go back here on a date, though."

  • "I read so many great reviews about Tink's that I was expecting the food to "wow" me a bit more. My husband and friends enjoyed everything, but few dishes stood out in terms of flavor. The exceptions were the CornUnDrum (corn on the cob with roasted pepitas, cheese, etc.) and the Shrimp and Grits. Both of those dishes were delicious and packed a flavor punch. Still, it was fun to choose from the menu and share the plates, and it's a nice laid back environment for drinks and food with friends."

  • "Tink's is a neighborhood gem with its cozy rustic ambience- the menu is one that can please most and everyone loved their selected dish. They serve good coffee in big mugs and your Moo is served in an" Ellsie the cow" individual ceramic server ( a cute touch) The sweet potatoe hash was my favorite The service was warm and friendly, we did wait awhile for service,but they made up for delays with courtesy This small but cozy spot has an easy going tone that will never give you the feeling it's time to go- stay as long as you like! They just keep filling the coffee mugs and water as you talk. The only negative remark is, if you are seated at the window seats,bring your own cushion - the tiles are not comfortable-"

  • "Went here for brunch. It was delicious, especially the more traditionally Southern dishes (the best was hands down the chicken and waffles, although the biscuits with gravy and eggs were really satisfying too). It's a small place so if you have more than two or three people I'd recommend making a reservation."

  • "Tink's is a small cute restaurant with some really nice touches. It is american food tapas style which is great for sharing and trying different dishes. I read that their pretzel fried chicken was highly recommended however, it was not my favorite of their dishes. Their tuna sliders were really tasty. The gnocci was delicious and completely fresh. If I went back I would try their mac and cheese which looked delicious and was recommended as well. They have a small but nice beer and wine list. The servers are really friendly. Overall it was a great experience. The restaurant was a little warm but other than that it was delicious and i would go back."

  • "Ate here on a Friday evening as a couple, as part of our on-going tour round the East Village Eateries. Food was really great - some good original dishes, and all delicious, Service was good, friendly and genuine. Will be back. It's a particulary good spot to go with a small group of 4+, as you can try more dishes that way - though check ahead as it is a small place."

  • "Tinks is a really small and cozy restaurant. The night I was there was a Thursday a an acoustic musician was setting up. Usually I think this is a bad sign because it might be too loud or in a small place, it may be hard to focus on your dinner conversation in a setting that small. Neither were the case. The music was a great touch and added to that intimate atmosphere. The food was delicious. We ordered 4 plates between the two of us- we are both women and it was plenty. When I bring my husband, I will order an extra. The pretzel fried chicken was awesome and a definite repeat. The Angus were ordered medium and came out perfectly."

  • "Yes, this place is tiny. Yes, we made endless Peter Pan references. However, the food was amazing! I came on a Tuesday night with my family and friends and everyone had a great time. I had the gnocchi and lobster pot pie and will be dreaming about both for weeks. Overall, Tink's is a tiny gem with charming decor and delicious food."
