Pintxo (pronounced peen-cho) is a Spanish Tapas Bar located in the heart of Belltown. Pintxo produces a vast array of Basque small bites from traditional favorites to modern takes on the traditional dishes from various culinary regions of Spain, including San Sebastian, Barcelona and Madrid.

While a majority of the food is sourced locally, some ingredients such as the Spanish Cheeses and Jamon Iberico de Bellota (cured ham from the acorn fed Iberico pig) are frequently used to create the traditional dishes that have been made in Spain and Pais Vasco (Basque Country) for centuries.

The beverage menu features wine, liquor, beer and cider/cidra from Spain, although local wine and beer are also readily available and easily paired with Pintxo’s bold and flavorful food.

The dining room is intimate and features bar and table seating as well as Private Dining and a speakeasy style bar behind the restaurant.

I have dined at Pintxo several times and never been disappointed. Always order grilled octopus; this time thoroughly enjoyed the 3-beet salad special. And the dark chocolate torte did not let me down. Wait service is excellent . Cozy even when the house is full.

Food was not very good. Paella was really salty.

We enjoyed a special Valentine's Day meal. We shared the Lamb Chops, Canelones del Mar, Oysters, and Gambas Pil Pil. The Canelones took Gold, and the Gambas Pil Pil and Lamb Chops were tied for silver. The oysters were good, but as I am the only one of us that eats them, it's biased. The wait staff was excellent.

The building is pretty, particularly the glass center.

The portions were small for the price and weren't particularly authentic from a Spanish Tapas perspective.

Compared to other places I have been, the food itself was disappointing. The service wasn't bad but wasn't great and it wasn't particularly busy. The bacon wrapped dates were decent but the cheese/meat was small in portion size as was the bread that was provided to go with it. It certainly didn't have an authentic spanish feel with its dishes. .

Was really really good quality food. My friend from Spain approved of it saying it is exactly how it is! No gimmicks no unnecessary fake wannabe spanish decor or music. Just plain great spanish tapas. Must go!

Excellent tapas and wine although we didn't explore the menu too much. Second time at their new location and they seem to be doing well. The new space is great.

i really like pinxto and their food and drinks are fantastic. we had a great time. Everything was fantastic service & food-wise, but we had trouble hearing each other during dinner due to the echoey front area -- when I come back again, I'm going to request seating in one of the side areas -- it seemed to be very location dependent.

The new space is not as intimate but makes it a lot easier to get in!

Food was good, i really loved some and was unimpressed by other orders. Drinks were good but not amazing.

Server was unfriendly.

Charged per person to plate a cake that the server did not actually serve or cut.

Would not split the bill even though i understand (because I’ve served tables for many years) that it’s really very easy to separate things off of a large Check. Gratuity will even transfer nowadays which was the old reason to avoid the separate Check dilemma.

We were looking forward to visiting at the new location and it did not disappoint! Looking forward to future visits. We love trying all the small plates.

Nye dinner with a group was very enjoyable. Sangria was great and some dishes were very good. Some dishes were pretty average. Service was good!

Celebrated New Year’s Eve dinner at Pintxo with out of town relatives. We enjoyed the creative meals and ambiance. We thought the background music was a little loud.

Friendly and flavorful!

Enjoyed the empanadas, fresh oysters and the smokey goodness of the paella. Wait staff warm and helpful. Definitely going back.

Pintxo had great atmosphere, but the food was not good. Our menu suggested a mignonette would accompany our oysters, but there was no hint of acid on the plate. Steak skewers are risky: the meat has to melt in your mouth since it has nowhere to hide; Pintxo's did not. Our Iberico-broth braised octopus had a deep ham flavor but far too much salt, even considering the pickled shallot accompaniment. The tortilla espanola was cold, which is acceptable, but given the preparation should have been warm, and what the crostini added to the dish is still a mystery. Most glaring was the squid ink paella. The shrimp tossed on top was completely untreated, while the remainder of the dish was so salty we had to send it back. And when patrons send back the most expensive dish on the menu, don't charge them for it. I'd recommend that the chef recalibrate his or her seasoning palate so that salt doesn't overwhelm the other flavors of the food and the meal has more balance.

Perfect for before a show. We had a variety of tapas, a solid drink menu, and everything was quickly served.
