Very eerie to be in a restaurant that has only one other couple come in for dinner as we were finishing our dinner. Although food tasted great I can not understand how the food was fresh considering how empty it was.

Disappointing. This is a small restaurant. Bad planning on behalf of restaurant. We arrived to find a table set up for 16 guests arriving at same time as us. Restaurant unable to cope with only 2 servers. With some thought they should have had this large table of guests coming at 8pm not 7.15pm when everyone, including us, could have been given the attention needed. Also two tapas dishes we chose were not available.No potatoes with garlic and no salt cod. The shrimp tapas was 4 shrimp for $15. Overpriced and "sharing plates" too small to share.

Let me start off by saying that as soon as we walked into the restaurant there was an unpleasant odor, couldn’t quite identify it. We ordered about seven different dishes to share between five people. Most of them were just fair, the mussels tasted a bit fishy, we should have sent them back. The bread that was served was very good but only one slice per person came out in the basket , we did ask for more bread, again , one slice per person and to our surprise, when we received the check we were charged for the second basket !!! Who ever heard of that ? Our server was almost robotic, at the end of our meal he asked how everything was, when we mentioned about the mussels not tasting fresh, he just huffed and walked away. There were very few tables filled during the busiest week of the season...go figure

We loved everything about this place! The tapas dishes were delicious and generous (we had the squash blossoms, Iberian ham, and artichokes). We asked for recommendation on the ham, as they offer several. Whatever we got was, all agreed, just fantastic. My husband also ordered a main dish of elk tenderloin, which was beautifully presented, perfectly cooked and absolutely delicious. We didn't try dessert, but would guess by the quality of everything else that they're great.

This restaurant was tucked away and we would not have found it if we hadn't been searching on the internet for a place to go that evening. It was a terrific find! Quaint, cozy, authentic and tasty. If we were in the area again, we would definitely go back!

We were very pleased with each Tapas we ordered...all were creatively prepared and delicious. The Wine list was extensive and a nice selection of Tapas. Very hard to make a decision on what to order. We topped the evening off with coffee and a fantastic dessert.

If you are wanting a totally different dining experience then I would highly recommend IM Tapas. A lovely evening with in every way.

IM Tapas is very good. Great Tapa's, wine list and service. I am surprised the restaurant isn't more crowded then it is. We always get the Ibirco ham (alittle pricey however it is special and hard to find), Chorizo in cider, Filet, Shrimp in garlic sauce and specials they always have. The cheese plate is great as well and would highly recommend.

We went there for Valentines Day. Food is very tasty. I would have liked more options on the menu for small tastings. The spinach croquets are amazing, and empanadas also very good. The likely usually quiet scene (there were only 3 tables seated when we were there) was marred by crying and screaming children at a neighboring table ruining it for others.

Paella, paella, paella. If you have a craving for it, there is no better place to have authentic paella than IM Tapas. Try the negra if you are in the mood for something different. That said, the marinera with extra lobster tails and chorizo is awesome.

Very comfortable, attractive restaurant. Service and food were both good, although not worth the price tag. Our party of three tried six tapas and a medium priced bottle of red —- $165.00.
In my opinion that does NOT fit into the advertised (2) dollar sign category on Open Table and for that reason we probably won’t go back.

If you like peace and quiet, dine at 5:30 when the doors open. We’ve been at 6:30 too when it’s quite busy.

For us, the Albariño with some empanadas and duck, made a delicious dinner. Wait staff is very very nice. We will back often.

Highly recommended.

We dined last year at IM Tapas and really enjoyed it but really kind of forgot about it. We decided last minute New Years Eve to try it again and it was outstanding. We had the beet salad, the stuffed squash blossom and elk tenderloin and each were very special. The elk tenderloin was one of the best meat dishes I have ever had and I generally am not a game eater. We decided to splurge on dessert and were glad we did; we had a wonderful gelato/chocolate “cube” treat that was unusual and delicious. We enjoyed very attentive, knowledgeable wait staff. The setting is very quiet and peaceful; you can actually carry on a conversation. Would highly recommend in a heart beat!
