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.

Great food, super friendly service and cozy ambiance are the ingredients of this wonderful place in Chelsea. We’ve been there 3 times in the last month and has definitely become a big favorite of ours. It’s great for a date, friends having dinner and anything else in between. Love it!!

My second time at El Quinto Pino...loved it the first time and again this time. Our server, Abigail, was very friendly and gave us great recommendations. The trout was delicious.

First time dining at El Quinto Pino and didn't know what to expect. Small menu BUT the food was amazing! My favorite was the devil eggs! Super delicious. Small tapas but quite filling after few dishes shared with my friends. Definitely will go back again.

Food is always inventive. We ordered the grilled squid twice—fantastic. Service is a bit indifferent.

Our first waitress was fantastic and even had a great recommendation for wine. Then another took over and she was awful, no personality

We had a great evening at El Quinto Pino. The food was outstanding and the by-the-glass wine the server recommended was super. We had a mix of on-the-menu items and daily specials. I would most definitely recommend this small, intimate eatery and will go there again the next time I am in Manhattan.

Everything was so delicious, the service was outstanding. It is very small but in a good way, it was personal. The decor was modern but comfortable and non-distracting. Overall a really lovely experience and I would definitely go back to try more. It's hard to not want to order the whole menu!

We had a lovely time. While loud, the atmosphere was nice. The food was good, but not memorable to any of us. My only comment was that I had called to make a request for my daughters birthday and no one returned my call. Otherwise it was pleasant enough.
