Always great food and spectacular service. A little bit pricy, but it's absolutely worth it (and you don't pay tips!). Plus you can always start with their happy hour menu ;)

I cannot recommend Huertas aside from the service it was a bad experience.
Out of the 10 or so dishes we had the stand out was the octopus which was a 3 out of 5. The huevos rotos was inedible, the shishito peppers were over fried, the potatoes bravas were triple fried and bared no resemblance to what you would get in Spain. In summation over priced and not at all authentic.
I guess if you had never had real tapas you might think it’s ok but if that’s the case try and get to Spain and see the difference, then you will certainly never go back to this place.

Food was excellent! Safron Rice , the croquetas and the patatas bravas were our favorites! The host was very polite and courteous and our waitress was great!

Probably the best tapas bar in the lower half of the island. Great cocktails, delicious plates, good service.

Good food and nice place. Happy hour selections were underwhelming and pricy. Food was good service was ok food came out a little sporadically but they did not rush us. It was a bit pricey for tapas style food so be prepared as well as the drinks.

I was drawn to this restaurant based on the stellar reviews read here. The problem with good taste is everyone thinks they have it. The issue with high expectations is that they’re never met. After 50,000 points earned here 100 points at a time, I feel my tastes are above adequate, but my expectations are pretty standard. The unfortunate reality at Huertas is it doesn’t deliver more than a mediocre tasting meal poorly presented and grossly overpriced. From the rubbery octopus to the bland steak to churros drowned in chocolate sauce over grocery store ice cream, the best part of the meal was the wine. Not sure what people are raving about here, but set your tastes buds to underwhelmed and price tag above value.

Great food and service. Wine by the bottle was reasonably priced. Food and drink prices include gratuity so no need to add one. Really good value!

This is my second trip to Huertas in the last month and I'm sure it won't be my last. The food is authentic Spanish cuisine and the atmosphere is perfect for a leisurely dinner with friends. I recommended this place to several friends and each has thanked me.

Overall excellent experience. Tried just about everything. We were entertaining friends who have spent time in the Basque region, and they enjoyed the food, just kept saying "In San Sebastian this would be about three dollars..." Yes, it's pricey. What can you do.
The white vermouth was nothing special, and the desserts were really disappointing. Those were the only negatives.

Although this place came up as a 'quiet' choice, that's not really the case. Despite that one issue, it was well worth it for the very good and reasonably priced fare.

We ordered the Neustras Manos (our hands) where the chef made our selections. Everything was delicious! The waitress was knowledgeable and recommended a delicious wine.
The table next to us was loud and there was a bright Subway sign viewed through the front door, otherwise it would have been perfect.

We sat in the back room for dinner--the noise was unbearable. The combination of brick walls and hard walls meant the sound reverberated and every high-pitched laugh from one particular table was amplified to the max.

The service was prompt and gracious. The portions were quite small--each plate ($18-$25+) amounted to a few disappointing bites. We were especially looking forward to the morcilla dish only to find that the morcilla was pulverized into tiny bits and overwhelmed with chickpeas. Perhaps a better description should have been chickpeas and eggs with a dusting of morcilla. We left the restaurant disappointed with a hankering for pizza.

Back at Huertas after a long interlude. Fortunately everything was the same - innovative cuisine, attentive service, lots of activity and yet the leisure to sit and talk for as long as one wished. And the chef's menu remains a tantalizing, affordable alternative to a la carte.

The food was great, but it felt pretty over priced for what it was. The atmosphere was far more lively in the front section where you can't book, and a little bit dead in the back.

Great place for sharing food with a date! The service was amazing and tip was built into the price of the food which I think is great. Definitely try the chef's menu. The lighting could have been better/more romantic!

Huertas constantly comes up with creative new entrees, pixnos (tapas), and drinks.
The wait staff is incredibly accommodating, and so is the chef, who will assemble a delicious special meal to suit any requirement that a guest may have.

I read the book Generation Chef which chronicles the opening and first year of Huertas. It made me want to go experience and support the restaurant. I loved the vibe, laid back yet thought out. The staff was friendly and knowledgable and I really enjoyed the food. I'd definitely recommend it and hope to return soon.
