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

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.

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.

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.
