The food was very good, nice selection. First time indoor dining, felt safe and clean. Only drawback was the service, it was very slow - we had to keep calling the wait staff over for water refills and drinks. Not sure if the bad service was covid related or not though.

The octopus was incredible, and the celeriac puree was oddly our favorite part of the dish. The tuna tare tare was also great. It was really a fun time, even sitting outside in the street. Would highly recommend

Every tapa I had was good to excellent. Octopus, mushroom croquettes (really good), mussels, tuna tartare and cauliflower all suggested. I liked the Nutella banana pudding as well.

All the dishes we ordered were very oily and tasteless. Almost like they were left overs and warmed up when served. Food tasted old, not fresh at all.

Their food here is superb especially the octopus! For brunch they hace a very tasty bloody Mary. The staff is very warm welcoming and accommodating. The outdoor space is limited but once we are allowed to dine inside again you will get the full experience of this venue. They also have an incredible happy hour!

Excellent tapas. Service was good except that the bartender complained about the difficulty of making my drink, instead of simply apologizing for the delay in bringing out drinks. Quiet at lunchtime when not busy but our previous experience is that this restaurant is noisy when busier.

Music was way too loud to have a conversation even though must of the restaurant was for dining. Food was a bit overpriced for the quality and the overall ambiance of the restaurant. Would not recommend as a place to go for dinner.

If they up their drink game, I'd enjoy this place better! Also, the happy-hour-only-at-the-bar rule is disappointing. I shouldn't be punished for making a reservation. We would stay longer and order more food if we could get happy hour drinks.

Showed up for our 3:45 reservation at 3:53 to be told the kitchen was closed and the only things they offered was meat cheese and oysters. No tapas, no dinner, no lunch, no brunch. Planned a Sunday girls day in the city and was very disappointed to make the long walk from our show at MSG to be greeted with this information.

Really great food and the restaurant is very nice/hip. What is great about the menu is that you can order several items and share them. I think the waitress had her hands full as it took a long time, but it was a Saturday night so it's expected and luckily we weren't in a hurry. Don't plan on having intimate conversations, energy is high and music is loud. Majority of patrons were 20 and 30 year olds. Overall a good experience. Food was great and that's what really counts. :)

I ate at Bazar Tapas for the first time and had an amazing experience. I had the truffle hummus, the branzino and the chocolate mousse for dessert. The portions were generous and the food was superb. The service was excellent and the prices were most reasonable. A great place for the solo diner or a large party.
