I brought my wife here for her birthday, and was not disappointed. She has pretty high standards for our culinary excursions, and even she was quite pleased with the food. I thought it was absolutely delicious. Everything was exquisitely prepared, the dishes were brought out at the perfect pace, and the flavors were excellent. It was relatively quiet and we could hear each other easily. All in all, I'm super satisfied and would happily eat here again.

Small hidden gem. Service was welcoming and friendly. Food was excellent - we tried the beef croquettes, the octopus, patatas braves, lamb skewers and the shrimp. For dessert we shared the dark chocolate with olive oil & sea salt and the almond cake. Wine list is good but a bit pricey for a place like this. Will come back for the food!

Terrible experience!! The waiter didn't have a clue about the menu. He said it was his first day there and had not paid too much attention to the menu. He took the order verbally but had to come back to write it down because he forgot! The worst thing of all was that the bathroom was not working!! This is illegal in New York since this restaurant definitely has more than 20 seats! Two of my friends are pregnant... are you kidding me? Totally wrong, also no chance to wash your hands.

It is quite a small room and they set up one long table for a large party that was extremely loud. Lack of education wherever one goes!

Regarding the food... we got the dinner menu but we were there for brunch so the lomo sandwich was not available! The pisto manchego was extremely watery and it only tasted of cheese. The tortilla Española was pretty dry and the churros were undercooked. I guess they noticed so they discounted the coffees from the final bill. Very tight people.

Overall, a very disappointing experience. I was not expecting this taking into account that this is the sister restaurant of Txikito and that one has much better standards (although last time, I found a piece of glass in one of their pintxos). What a bad reputation for Spanish restaurants!

I will never go back or recommend it to a single soul.

The staff couldn't have been friendlier and more helpful although the wait for the table was ages. Yes, we'd booked in advance. The food was creative and the kitchen was very accommodating to the person in our party who's vegetarian. The portions were larger than expected and the food was great value. The decor is great; very cool. Recommend highly!

The food was the highlight at El Quinto Pino although it was slightly pricey for what you get. I wish the menu features more high quality Spanish ingredients like Jamon Iberico Bellota although they did have Cantabrian anchovies and tetilla cheese.

When you serve expensive small plates, those small plates better be damn good. Unfortunately this was not the case. Most of the food was okay, not bad but not great either. The stand out was the Iberico ham pork chop cooked like a steak with a chimmichuri sauce, which was delicious. This biggest disappointment was the Sea Urchin sandwich which was little more than toasted bread coated with wasabi and barely a hint of uni. Cocktails were good.

This is one of those places where you feel like it wasn't a bad experience but you could do better for your money in NYC.

Loved the place. Took my friend from overseas to have a late dinner. Food and ambience is always great, but our waitress was horrible this time I went. I'm just saying, don't be in customer service job if your not going to do the service well and expect a huge tip for poor service. I don't usually write reviews, and this IS a great place for authentic Spanish Tapas, but the waitress we had was really bad. She first let us place an order for drinks, served it promptly, but then didn't take our order until we had to call her attention 3x. After the food was served and we wanted to order a bit more, she ignored us again until my boyfriend came. When he was there, oh she came over very promptly, batted her eyes, and was super nice to him. When he stepped out and she was clearing the table, we asked for fresh plates and she thus continued to ignore us until my boyfriend came back and asked her and she changed it promptly. When we paid for the bill, she asked us if we needed change, which 1. would be almost $40 tip and 2. You NEVER ask the customer if they need change, you should just get it. When we said yes, she seemed disturbed, like she deserved that big of a tip for poor service. When she gave us the change, she slammed it on the table and turned around and walked away. We usually tip very well, but in this case, we gave the bare minimum. I understand giving big tips for great service, but that night, our service was HORRIBLE.

Spanish tapas is my favorite and this place was really good. Drinks were fabulous, service so friendly and helpful and on point, food- delicious and tasty but pretty small for even tapas. Other tapas places in the city offers more for same price. I will most likely try other spots before going back.

The food was delicious and the service was great. The volume can be a little bit on the louder side on a Saturday night, but that's pretty typical of a busy NYC restaurant spot. It was a perfect dinner spot for date night.
