AMAZING FOOD!!!!! You get big plates. So fresh, so good. Don’t have hard alcohol but great wine/champagne drinks

Get a bunch to share
Flatbreads are incredible. Short rib 10/10

This was a good dinner and nothing bad happened it was just not as great as I was expecting after seeing all of the amazing reviews. The food and service was fine but nothing special

Delightful place. We ordered a number of small plates to share, but honestly the thing I liked the most was the eggplant! (says me, never). I would definitely recommend a visit and make it in time for happy hour!

Lovely place, great atmosphere, delicious food. I would definitely go back, and recommend as a great place for a date or night out with a small group of friends. Unfortunately no cocktails, but great sangria!

The food overall was great at Plado Tasting bar but the dishes that were served with sauce could have benefitted from more sauce. I also didn't appreciate one of the tapas coming far later then the rest-not a single staff member came by to notify us nor did they come by to fill up our wine glasses (we bought a bottle).

Everything was unique and delicious. Great ambiance. And the service was wonderful, all of the waitstaff who assisted us were friendly and made us laugh. We had cocktails and the taro gnocchi, cheeseboard, and halibut carpaccio special. Would definitely recommend for a date night or friends’ get-together.

Some of the best food I have had in a while! Went with three friends as a goodbye/celebration dinner and it exceeded expectation! Made it in time for happy hour which was an added bonus! A bottle of wine for $30 :). Definitely a more expensive dinner but didn't even think about it because the food was so worth it. The mussels were to die for! Supposed to be mussels and clams but they were out of clams but gave us a discount because of it. The eggplant and gnocchi were top notch. Chefs kiss! Must go!

I went to Plado Tasting Bar with 2 friends on a Friday night and we had one of the best dining experiences so far in NYC! The food was amazing (you must get the gnocchi) and the service was also great. The chef came up to our table to ask us how it was which made our experience so delightful! The downstairs was fairly dark and great for a smaller group or date night dinner. Highly recommend this place!

A small cozy restaurant that's big on taste! Wanted to have a nice tapas style dinner with the wife and Plado did not disappoint. Some of our favorite dishes were the Crispy Baby Artichokes, Taro Gnocchi and Tagliatelle Seafood. The artichokes were our overall favorite. They were fried perfectly so they were crispy with a delicate center. We added prosciutto to the dish and definitely put it over the top. The service was very good also. Lots of help and suggestions with the wine and menu items. Our water and wine glasses were always full and the dishes came out at a nice pace where we didn't feel rushed. We will definitely be back!!

Very creative menu! We had a lots of vegetarian choices. Missing some flavors in vegan dumplings. Empanadas was very tasty. And Taro gnocchi was little heavy. Doughnut dessert was delicious.
We will definitely go again.

This is an amazing little spot for tapas! All of the dishes were spectacular, and the service was also excellent. We had the gnocchi which is a must, but everything was delicious - so you really can’t go wrong. 4 plates is good for 2 people, but we ended up ordering 5 because the food was so good. Kristin, the owner, went above and beyond to make our experience enjoyable on a cold January evening. Thanks so much for the lovely dinner, we will be back!

The stuffed oysters were fabulous. Flat bread was good as well. We didn’t care for the croquettes. The sauce was cold which made the entire croquettes cold and not how I’ve had them in the past. Overall a good dinner, I’d have to try more apps again.
