What Insiders Are Saying
This restaurant/wine bar in Chelsea from the folks who brought you Tia Pol and Txikito delivers solid authentic Spanish eats, wine, and sangria.
The food was great but very very small portions. Great bar area, nice distance between dining tables. Service was ok.
Disappointing. Given the multiple 4 and 5 star reviews, i had high expectations, especially since i am a fan of authentic Spanish tapas. My companion and I ordered a variety of dishes, and unfortunately, found the food to be lacking. Perhaps the kitchen was having an off day. Service and ambience so-so.
Nice brunch. Wish they had few more options.
Lovely start to finish
Creative and tasty dishes. Just excellent all around food for great value!
El Quinto Pino was a delight. It was my first visit and will certainly not be my last. Having visited the Basque region in Spain, I found the food to be spot on. Great Gin & Tonic. Above all else, our server James P was terrific. He offered great guidance and helped make the right choices when we were not certain. This is a great tapas place.
I think I may have found my new favorite restaurant.
Fabulous food, excellent service, lovely room. Go there!
Nice, quaint place... Spanish style tapas.. service was awesome at the bar and excellent choice in wines. The garbanzos fritos were so dry I choked! Other than that everything else was great! The bartender was a delight and my 17 year old daughter loved him!
Casual easy tapas in Chelsea. Tiny room. Friendly service.
This restaurant is terrific. The food is delicious, the service excellent, and the noise level allowed us to have excellent conversation throughout dinner. We kept extending dinner because we wanted to continue tasting the various tapas selections. Not a single disappointment. We did not realize there was a dessert menu. but when we saw it we had to force ourselves to try a couple of those choices. Everything was fantastic. Thank you for a lovely dinner experience
Loved this place and the food and the service! Would make the effort to go back often.
Our third visit. This time for a business dinner. We had a great time.
Everything we tried was delicious and very affordable for the quality! We look forward to becoming regulars
Outstanding service and food. The team at EQP is on top of their game!
Great spot for food and friends! Feels like Im still in Spain. (though the white sangria was not so great)
Loved the croquetas, califlor and Almond torte. sat in the front which is quiet-- but back room is really really noisy-- even with tapestry on the wall-- maybe something can be done to tone absorb noise.
Had brunch. Food was tasty albeit on the small side for servings, even the items which were “tapas” per se. I would recommend but just expect to order more dishes than what you though, bumping up the price for brunch.
Excellent Tapas and Ambiance
We had good vibes as soon as we walked into the restaurant. Well-designed environment, friendly service and excellent food.
Had a great time, food was delicious and service was very attentive. Were there for a birthday dinner with one GF guest, plenty to eat and share and everyone had a great time. Definitely would recommend!
Such a fun place. Great service. Good food and good prices and a great ambiance. Perfect for a dinner with friends!!!
The food was excellent with an interesting wine selection from Spain. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a nice restaurant to relax and have some quiet conversation.
After several memorable dinners over the years, I can say El quinto pino is always a pleasure.
Decent meal, but nothing special. Prices were very fair (almost surprisingly so), but I don't feel an urge to come back anytime soon. Service was a little slow and at least the mixed drinks were average. The croquetas were the only thing we ordered that I particularly liked.
This Spaniard’s favorite NYC Spanish restaurant!
Good quality, creative food. Well paced delivery of tapas. Garlic shrimp in broth , shrimp/chick pea fritters, calamari very good dishes. Attentive but not intrusive wait staff. Cozy atmosphere. Would return next time we get to NYC.
Everything we had was good, but felt pricey for portion sizes and quality. But otherwise a very pleasant place to have a meal!
Walked from hotel, pleasantly surprised to find a wonderful atmosphere and excellent food - made for a nice evening.
The food was good but not exceptional. Portion size was very small for the price.
The best tapas we have ever eaten - better by far than anything we ate in Andalucia earlier this year.
Sadly we return to London today, but we made a point of coming back to El Quinto Pino one more
time before we left!
Only things worth getting are the fideúa, nuestras bravas, and the pork shoulder special.
Thought the ambiance and service were good . Did not love the food , nothing special about it . Wine list was good
We love El Quinto Pino. One of our favorite restaurants in Chelsea.
Delicious tapas in a cozy space. Service was excellent. Try the salchichon with crispy artichokes if they still have it (it was a special), or the shrimp in broth.
This restaurant has amazing tapas. AMAZING. Try the specials (all of them!) Have a glass of sangria, sit back and enjoy the exceptional service of the staff and the wonderful cuisine of the chef. This is one to remember!
It was an amazing experience. The waiter was very knowledgeable. All plates were very creative and the flavors and texture were positively surprising.
A bit loud in terms of sound level. Could have used a couple of sound absorbing surfaces.
Loved the suspended lighting fixture looking like a women’s sun hats.
The food was great but the service was really slow, we had a reservation and we got to the place 10 mins before our reservation time but were not seated until 45 mins post the time our reservation. We thankfully still had an hour and 15 to spare before the show we were supposed to go to but even after being seated everything was very slow and we were pretty flustered about it. The tapas was pretty decent and would recommend the food but would try to order in if possible
My Spanish friend and I met in New York and wanted to try this Spanish restaurant that was recommended by other Spanish friend. We loved the location, the atmosphere and the food, which was authentic Spanish
Dinner was amazing and the server was adorable. I was Basquing in the glory of the good food and ambiance all night. Can't E'Spain how much I enjoyed it.
Food was great. Really delicious uni panini, croquetas, etc. Had a great time for my 6 month with my girlfriend.
their listing says they are open very late but we were a bit rushed because they closed up at 11:45pm
