    Four of us went out to dinner. We scored a booth, and we lucked out with Robert as our server. The tapas menu is VERY extensive (more choices than any place I've seen). Everything we chose was delicious. Only one minor critique is that one person in our group dislikes spicy food, and most of the dishes are hot or spicy or garlicky, or all three. Would it be beneficial to have some kind of mark on the menu items that are spicy? We also got one order of paella, that is supposed to serve two people but is gigantic, and easily served the four of us. The wine list is good. We had tiramisu and ice cream for dessert -- both delicious. We will be back!

    Irving Street Tapas used to be Irvu=ing Street Kitchen. The decor hadn't changed at all. The food was at best marginal and the service slow. We asked the server to turn the music down a little. It didn't happen. A lousy experience

    One word - unimpressed. After waiting for almost 20 minutes for anyone to approach my table to even offer water (not for a want of servers - they had plenty) I went to the front desk to inquire (note, the place requests your credit card for reservation and charges $20 after 10 min grace period - so, I guess they owe me since I had to wait twice that?) - no explanation, nothing. After the server finally came over - I have no complaints on service from that point on, she was very good. The food, on the other hand, was disappointing. Pork belly was dry - more like jerky. Tuna - anyone who had it before can see from my picture that it was very overcooked. Steak was the only decent dish if you like yours medium well. To sum up - not a place I would go back to or recommend to a friend. The bar looked good and had a nice selection, but I had only wine so cannot comment.

    First time we’ve visited since it has Become Irving Street Tapas. What a fantastic change this has been. Although we loved the old Irving Street Kitchen, this is a definite upgrade. Not only is the food great, but the wine is incredibly reasonably priced. We had the good fortune of having Hyacinth as our wait person and she was a delight the entire evening. Can’t wait to go back.

    We had a great family gathering. The tables were spread out far enough so we felt safe and with enough privacy for conversation. Food was great, drinks were strong, and waitstaff was awesome. If I had to knock anything, it would be how they brought out the tapas. We ordered quite a few plates including a charcuterie board all at the same time, and it came out a couple plates at a time. It would have been nice to know if that's their normal presentation ahead of time cuz I kept wondering where our cheese board was. It was all so delicious!

    This place has a total identity crisis. It’s called Tapas but has very few Tapas and the a lot of attempts at global dishes. None were well executed. First of all, we were very confused on where to enter and walked into a doorway and couldn’t find anywhere to check in and the dining room was empty but the patio had many patrons. The owner (I think) rushed up to us and I said we had reservations and then he said we were there only reservations for that time (red flag #1). We were seated at a very cute booth that provided the intimacy we were hoping for. A server came up with an iPad slung around her shoulder (they all had them) and provided water for the table. She pointed us to the taped on QR codes for the menu and also asked if we wanted a paper one. Our phone batteries were running low and we generally find web menus hard to read so we asked for the paper ones. (It now appears the paper menus and the QR codes are not the same). She brought the paper menus (3 of them: food, wine, cocktails) and I didn’t see one drink choice that didn’t contain alcohol. I asked if they had anything. She acted like she had never been asked that question and said that no they didn’t. I ordered a club soda with bitters and a lime (they charged me $4!!) When we got our drinks we ordered some food: patatas bravas, steak chimichurri and a burrata stack (it’s tomato season!). The patatas bravas we’re dry and the sauce quite bland. The burrata had a truly tasteless tomato (we called it a Sysco Tomato - but it’s august in Portland! Tomato season!) and this overly sweet balsamic sauce (like it had cinnamon in it too?). The steak was good but a bit dry and slightly over cooked. All in all, i am glad we threw some money at a Portland restaurant but we would NEVER come back.

    We had a large group of 15 and Robert took exceptional care of us. He knew what we needed before we needed it! He suggested putting out the favorite dishes to start and man were they a hit! We didn’t have to think about ordering, we could just socialize and network. Highly recommend for a business meal. Thank you, Robert, et al!

    The folks working at Irving Street Tapas were lovely, the food however was meh. The steak chimichuri was delicious. The calamari was dry and extra chewy, but the sauce good. The poke, which my daughter loves generally, was such poor quality fish it had tough unchewable layers of fiber. I’ve never experienced this- I spent half the meal trying to cut the fish so she could eat it. The humus was ok, but grainy. Nothing like MEC. The ariancini were just mushy without flavor, though we did pick vegetarian.

    Our waitress Lauren or Laura was absolutely fabulous. She had knowledge about the menu and made sure we were all good. Open Table has the hours of operation wrong so we made reservations for 4 on open table but they didnt open until 5. She still opened the doors for us sat us and treated us very well. I would go back again if she could be our waitress again. Absolutely amazing.

    The food was terrible. The “burrata stack” was mozzarella, not burrata. No spices. Dry. The salmon cakes were very fishy, overly breaded. The pork was over cooked. Every dish was so bad. :(

    For starters, Hyacinth is one of the best waitresses that I've ever met. She was pleasant, engaging, professional, and provided the best recommendations for drinks and tapa dishes. For a Friday evening, the noise level was moderate. There is a great selection of tapas to choose from, as well as many creative drink options.

    The service was friendly and attentive. However, I was expecting a spanish tapas bar, but got a mix of Indian and spanish dishes. The quality and flavor was average at best. In my opinion, the restaurant needs to make a choice ofeither be Indian or Spanish, but not both.

    Irving Street TapasResponded on July 12, 2022We have Japanese, Greek, Spanish, Indian, Mediterranean and other world cuisines which we have made into tapas. Sorry you were disappointed Mark. Hope you try our other dishes and maybe that will change your opinion?

    The food was really good but the bar service took a very very long time. The service could have been a lot better but the speed at which food came out somewhat made up for the lack of service. It was also very loud in there to the point where it was challenging to hear the people sitting at your table. Management was kind and very helpful as we had a guest that had some ADA needs
