Spanish
El Quinto Pino is a Multiregional Spanish tapas bar in Manhattan from chefs Alex Raij and Eder Montero. A gathering place and the perfect place to go for drinks and traditional and signature tapas. Famous for our Uni Panini, our unique menu and off the beaten path wine list celebrating all regions of Spain. Above all, we are inspired by the tapas lifestyle and the ability of the tapas tradition to bring people together. Our authentic and creative food is rooted in tradition but has true flair and our staff is knowledgeable but most of all friendly.

This winning and fresh approach has meant that El Quinto Pino has enjoyed being called “the best” and “most authentic tapas bar” over and over again since we opened in 2007.

Really glad I discovered and the server let me and my guest know of the other venues in the "family". Roasted vegetables good but seemed more like a ratatouille than what I expected. Cocktail could have been a little more generous. Server very nice. I will definitely return and recommend to others. Great find in Chelsea (thank you, NYT!).

This is such a special little place. People were super attentive and generous. Food was tapas mostly and unusual blends of flavor. Had a lovely experience and would highly recommend. Food was really good too!

The food and the place was terrible. We are from Spain and this place has nothing to do with Spain. We won’t come back.

It was uneven. The lamb skewers were excellent but the seafood dishes were below par... both the octopus and calamari were too chewy.

i have had a good experience in the past in this restaurant, but this will be the last time i eat there. because it is a tapas place, we felt encouraged to order more small plates if we were still hungry after the first round. we were interested in ordering more, including dessert, when we were told we had to leave our table in 15 minutes because of a reservation (we too had reserved our table). i have NEVER experienced this before, unless i was a walk-in, or had sat for a really long time. we had NOT been sitting for an extended time, and were continuously ordering. we were reminded that we "only had 5 minutes left", which made it worse. i still left a 20% tip, because i have been a server myself, but it was unsatisfactory and i was embarrassed that i was the one who chose this restaurant

A treasure tucked away in Chelsea: I LOVE this restaurant! The food is adventurous without being contrived. It is Spanish and everything I have ever had on the menu is beautifully conceived and prepared. The room is small, warm and inviting - comfy furniture, good lighting, homey. The service is impeccable. And you can talk here. I would recommend it to anyone who really appreciates a well sourced and expertly prepared food.

A quaint tapas place in the Chelsea section of Manhattan - with super tasty drinks as well as food. The service was top-notch and outstanding, from the hostess seating is to our server - super helpful and so accommodating!The atmosphere cozy, it's definitely intimate and is a reason to travel to a less touristy and crowded part of the city to enjoy quality food. My spouse and I are trying to watch our potions and this was a great choice for it! Quality meat and seafood too. I especially loved the frozen Mallorcan lemonade cocktail. Not something I'd normally order in December in NY but it was a warm evening (restaurant too, on the warm side, of your ok with that) so it went perfect with my mostly seafood based meal. I can't wait to return.

The space is charming. The food was outstanding. We had 15 different dishes and were blown away each time. The waiter we had, Alex, was quite simply the best! His attention to detail and efficiency made the night wonderful He was helpful and could answer any question about the menu, both food and wine. It was a wonderful experience.

Loved the ambience/vibe, but the food was just okay. I wasn’t blown away by anything and we ordered half the menu. If I’m spending over $100 on going out to eat, I expect the food to be unforgettable. That being said, the service was excellent.

El Quinto Pino is the kind of small place with carefully prepared food and lovely service that is so rare. It was fun, delicious and a a bit of a mini vacation -- what more can you ask?

Great food, nice atmosphere, exceptional service. We had a party of 5, and the server offered to plate our selections so they could be evenly divided, which was perfect, as we all wanted to try everything! Her recommendations were spot on.
