The food was excellent. Everything that we ordered came out very well. Just the right touch of uniqueness to their tapas. The ingredients feel fresh. Could have more options in cocktails.
Reuniting with friends who hadn’t been together for 2 years.
Lovely dinner on the sidewalk at a nice table. Food was very good.
Food was outstanding! The mushroom carpaccio was AMAZING and the sangria was great. Our server was incredibly sweet, knowledgeable, and very helpful.
Food is Good.
I strongly recommend to order the beef sandwich and the sea bass!
The ambience is nice. But the restaurant is kind of lack of service. Every request I asked takes forever to get it done and I may also ask for twice.
Overall very good food and service. It was near the edge of the street so noise is inevitable.
The food was delicious, came out very quickly, and our server was very attentive.
We love Nai - it’s our favorite place ever!
Every meal at Nai is incredibly special and festive. The staff is so wonderful and knowledgeable and the food is unparalleled!!!!
Enjoyable tapas with some choices you don’t often see at other tapas restaurants. Try their interesting non-soup take on gazpacho. The wine list is interesting with a lot of offbeat choices, almost all of which are available by the glass. Try a sip to see if you like a wine before you order a bottle.
Very good tapas, some with interesting twists (pasta paella). Nice short Spanish wine list. Will def return
How do you choose a restaurant in Manhattan if you are from the south of Spain? Easy: pick one that has Alhambra 1925 beer in the menu - then you know they are for real (disclaimer - I am from Granada, obviously biased in my choice of beer)
I had a dinner with someone I deeply respect and I choose Nai Tapas in Manhattan downtown to showcase Spanish food… Raul is one of the owners - ans he is the real deal.
If you ever are in Manhattan- drop by East village and tell Rahul you saw this picture - you won’t regret it.
Authentic, delicious tapas! We enjoyed everything especially the paella, octopus, chicken liver pate, mushrooms and ox tail. Friendly and attentive service made the experience even more enjoyable.
Yhe food and service were great. We came for Father's Day and had a lovely, well-explained tapas experience. Highly recommend.
Food was great! I would strongly recommend the mushroom and the pasta paella.
My first mediocre experience after several great ones at this tapas restaurant. I’m going to chalk it up to a fluke and go back because all the previous times were great.
Extremely good deal for tasting menu. Proper explanation of gastronomy
Really unique and delicious food. Great servers and enjoyed a fancy date night.
My go-to tapas in the East Village and a neighborhood gem. The staff are all very nice. I go at least once a month. I generally don't like white sangria, but the way they make it is so delicious. We get a pitcher every time. It's an absolute neighborhood gem. Every single item on their menu is perfection. Some of my favorites are the carpaccio portabello with truffle which is so decadent and rich, chilean sea bass, shrimp garlic, out of this world paella (a generous portion), carrot greek yogurt (you won't regret this one), and the ribs. Highly recommend.
Great food, amazing service at reasonable prices! Would definitely come back.
Delicious and creative. I recommend. Nice people too.
Nai Tapas was exceptional in every way. The service was prompt, courteous and friendly. the food was delicious!
Love Nai!!! The drink and food are very good!
We loved dining out in a good weather!
Well come back for more Sangria!!!
Fantastic combination of traditional tapas and modern takes on tapas. I am a Spaniard, so my bar is set high for tapas restaurants and this place exceeds my expectations every time.
Fantastic service & amazing food. I can’t believe it took me this long to come here. Everything was phenomenal - drinks (I ordered a cocktail & split sangria with my friend), the food, & our servers were very attentive. I don’t live anywhere close by but I will definitely be returning.
Absolutely amazing experience. The food is divine, every single item at every single visit has been outstanding. The service is impeccable. Will most certainly be back.
Great food !! Great service !! Raul welcomes you like you are entering his home.
Love this place. Amazing food and friendly staff.
Nai Tapas never disappoints. Food was outstanding, especially the tostada and pulpo. The service was amazing, they were helpful in choosing dishes and beer/wine pairings and attentive. Can’t wait to go back!
Great food, great service!
Love Nai - have been going there for years and the food is outstanding. Staff is wonderful - just one of my favorite places all around.
The staff were AMAZING! Everyone was so nice and the waiters were very knowledgeable about the menu. Speaking of the menu, the food was absolutely delicious. I had a great time and can't wait to go back!
Wonderful staff — so considerate. We really enjoyed our meal.
Service was impeccable! Food was even better & the drinks were truly crafted blends. The horchata matcha drink I had was absolutely delicious!! Chef also paired us with some wine to go with the tapas!
It was my birthday and I had a wonderful dinner. The staff was outstanding! They were knowledgeable and offered several suggestions for tapas. We had the tasting menu experience and loved it.
Went for Valentine’s Day, the pre selected menu was awesome and well priced, very happy. The food was awesome and the variety was very nice- some of the tapas were not things I would’ve selected but I am glad they were selected for me
Nai is the best! Great food, great great drinks and great service!
Food is amazing - I’m from Spain and this is the best restaurant in town!
My friends and I had an incredible experience at Nai! The service was exceptional and everyone catered to our needs and more. Our server was incredible and explained every item he served us along with the process of making it. One of the best dining experiences I have had in NYC. You won’t be disappointed at all at Nai!
Loved this place! Can't wait to go back. Everything is perfect: food, service, location.
