Huertas Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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.
Huertas was an amazing experience! We tried all the pintxos, which were unbelieveable. Also had 2 of the shared plates: the octopus and the roto rojos. We couldn't get enough of both. The apples in the cider my date bought were hand picked by the owner/manager (whom we met and is very nice and accommodating), and was perfectly crisp, dry and refreshing (definitely recommend). We were selected to get a free hot dog, which was by far the best hot dog I have ever had. I ordered a Spanish beer and it paired well with the meal. All of this amazing food for only $80 total! Definitely recommend.
Came on a Sunday night for their tasting menu, Nuestras Manos. The food was amazing (as always) and the service was excellent. The servers here are always so friendly and helpful. The ambiance is very pleasant and it wasn't loud at all, making it easy to hold a conversation. I will definitely be back!
This is the perfect spot for dinner on a"Summer in the City" night. Our cocktails were delicious and the food presentation was well timed. I also love that Huertas includes a service charge - some people may not love this (it's very European) - but it makes life easier.
Eat 10 of the foie gras and onion jam crostini. Thank me later!
I would not come back for dinner just for drinks and appetizers. It's a limited menu and some of the food is strange. I thought the waiter should have made us aware that when you order clams they are served in a can. Also one of the tapas seemed like uncooked potato strings. The croquetas were good but filled with peas so it was strange.
I had high hope based on the high food score on Zagat. It ended up being a disappointing meal. The drinks and the polpo were great but everything else is underwhelming. Papas Fritas is generic and nothing Spanish. Meatball is salty served with average bread. I also do not understand why they charge high price and serve some dishes in a tin. The dishes I've tried are nowhere close to the tapas I've had in Spain. I do not recommend and will not visit again.
so, So, SO GOOD!
Huertas, I love you!
In the 5 or so times I've dined at Huertas, every experience was fantastic. The pintxos are the perfect little bites, with the foie gras being the most perfect of them all. The Revueltos were a revolution only surpassed by the Pulpo. While some of our party enjoyed the rotos, they didn't do it for me. Perhaps if the other dishes hadn't been so outstanding I would have enjoyed it more, but I just wanted to eat piles of the pulpo, papas, croquettes, and revueltos. Enough of a mix of cocktails, wine, and beer options to keep my group happy regardless of what they tried, and they tried a lot!
The hospitality included here is a testament to how effective the policy could be. I'm not sure there is a more friendly, helpful, and engaging staff in NYC.
