It was totally awesome! Raul and his team were welcoming, cool, knowlegable, just perfect! Go to Nai Tapas and have a great and memorable evening
If live Flamenco shows weren’t enough, Nai has some of the best Spanish food in the City. Get there during Happy Hour for discounted drinks, stay for dinner and a show. Outstanding.
The staff was so friendly and quick, and the performance was stand-out!!! One of my favorite places in the city.
Simply the best in its genre and in the area as well.
Food is awesome. Go!
We had a great experience. Raul, Rosa and Giovanni took care of us and made us feel like family. The food was fantastic. Can't wait to get back!
Had a wonderful time at Nai Tapas for my birthday. Delicious food, great drinks and fantastic service.
The food was very fatty and not tasty. Most of their bottles of wine start in the upper price range area which makes it very difficult to pick between the only 2 around 50. The place was almost empty and stayed like that until the end. Again the quality of the tapas was very poor.
What wonderful place to dine. Superb food and entertainment. We dined for my sons birthday. Doesn’t have to be a special occasion! Can’t wait to visit again soon!
We had a good time. It’s more of a casual place. It does not have any music on a background do if gets pretty noisy. Overall it has a good food. It is out third time there .
Felt like I was in Spain, ambience was perfect. Flamenco performance was great and food was classic tapas. Sangria was a little too sweet and watered down for my liking, but overall great time!
Decent authentic tapas... An extensive menu to choose from and all were great! The service was not good though and it took over an hour to get our first dish. Tapas are typically fast at least to get your first one. Everyone else around us seemed to get their food fast though.
Good food, good sangria's ... Service needs improvement
Unlimited brunch is a great deal! $30 for entree and 90 minutes unlimited drinks..sangria is delicious! Also great l or flamenco performance on Thursday and Saturday.
Excellent service, food was delicious, fav tapas spot in NYC
We went last Thursday and had amazing tapa dishes. The food quality was spectacular. Additionally, the flamenco dance was fabulous. We had a grand time and would definitely return soon.
Terrific, if somewhat grumpy, service--but I believe that is because the servers are actualy Spanish and have strong Catalan accents. The seafood is really, really good...it's fun to go with a few people (as we did). Strangely they put mayonnaise on almost everything, (I love mayonnaise but not everyone does). Four people with ymmy pitcher of sangria and 6 tapas was satisfying and with tip about $200 so a deal for Manhattan, and fun and memorable to share the dishes. Give it a try.
As always, Nai was a wonderful experience from start to finish. Food, drinks, service, entertainment - all top notch. We always bring first-timers and they are inevitably impressed. See you soon!
2nd time with a group to Nai tapas, this time I made the reservation at 7:45 to allow time to order and chat with friends before the Flamenco starts as it get's so loud you can't even hear yourself think. The problem was the food came so fast that we finished within an hour and couldn't really enjoy. I think we would have ordered more food/drinks but it was so loud that we couldn't get each other's attention, let alone our server. If I go back again, I will request a seat in the back or front so it will hopefully be less loud.
Beautiful place .. staff very attentive... food was delicious.
Overall excellent time.
Such a fun time! Thank you!
Love Nai. Always excellent food and friendly, prompt service. Best value for a meal in the area.
Magnificent Tapas - Wonderful, Downtown Ambiance
If you love regional tapas and an authentic selection of Spanish wines, this is the place for you. Everything on the menu is executed with care and with exceptional flavors. In addition to the spectacular dishes, the ambiance is warm and rustic with an authentically Spanish vibe. Thankfully, no getting rushed or synthetic friendliness here. An authentic experience through and through. Love everything about Nai!
I came here on multiple occasions before, this time i came in for my birthday with a bunch of friends who were the first timers at the restaurant and everyone loved it, the show was interesting, the food was very good, portions aren't big that way we tried many things on the menu and one thing was better than the other, great experience and everyone is satisfied with it. Would definitely recommend this place and will be back there soon for the amazing food.
The food was exceptional. The servers were very attentive and friendly. The wines and sangria were delicious. We were a party of 10 and the staff was very accommodating, or food came out hot and perfectly prepared. I look forward to visiting again.
This is my favorite restaurant. The food is exceptionally good and always fresh and interesting and authentic tapas. The service is outstanding. Everyone is happy to see you, greets you warmly, makes you feel at home and special. I've come here for a retirement party, a party party, friends' get-togethers, casual dining, special "dates" with my husband. And of course the Flamenco dancing on Thursdays and Saturdays are a special treat.
This was my second time here and it was great! Will definitely be back, especially for the brussels sprouts and blueberry sangria!
Food was good though their inventive tapas were not as good as traditional ones. They asked us to leave after only one hour of dining even though we had a legit reservation through Open Table. They admitted the mistake later but no apologies and this incident ruined total experience. We will not go back there.
We love Nai Tapas, their choices are creative and delicious. We especially like the salmon and the Spanish tortilla, but everything was wonderful and the staff are very friendly!
The food was deeeeee-lish. Try the croquets! Had the table ready as soon as we walked in. The champagne sangria was great.
Very nice way to end the year, loved the atmosphere !
One of my favorites, Nai never disappoints. We had a great meal curated by our waiter and thoroughly enjoyed all of it. The friends I brought kept asking me why I kept this place a secret from them.
Fantastic Flamenco show, authentic tapas, and great service. Ole!!
Incredible food and great service. I have been here several times and haven't been disappointed. It's a great date night spot, however can get quite loud when it's busy as it's a small space with very little room between tables.
Loved this restaurant! Creative menu and perfect ambiance for my kind of fun date night. I originally had high hopes for the sangria given that it's a Spanish restaurant but was ultimately disappointed - it had no flavor to it and seemed to be watered down (maybe too much ice?). Nonetheless, the delicious tapas, live music, and flamenco dancing topped off my overall experience and made it all worth my time.
Definitely go for one of the flamenco performances! The food is delicious, the service great, and the music and dancing is wonderful. A fun experience with friends or family! However, if you want to be able to have an in depth conversation you may want to avoid the flamenco because it is very energetic and it might be hard to hear. Or, better yet, show up well before the show so you can talk when it is quiet and then still get to enjoy the dancing!
Great food, kind of loud , staff was super friendly and accommodating , service was great!
Great date spot
The service was excellent and the presentation of the food was amazing. My friends and I will definitely be returning.
Great show and performers! Food is always excellent!
