What a great restaurant! We went (2 of us) for a date night and had an amazing time. The vibes were great, lighting was perfect- dim lit, and food was amazing! Very filling tapas. My only comment is that people are constantly coming in the restaurant which forces a gust of cold air during the winter season. I wasn’t lucky with my seating for this situation but there were plenty of spots that probably weren’t affected by it!

All the glowing past reviews are spot on!

The food and service were both amazing.
Every dish was delicious. The gnocchi was to die for! So much so that we doubled our order. The octopus was so tender and a highlight of our meal.

Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and offered perfect suggestions for our table.

My friends and I met the following day and could not stop glowing about our dinner. We can’t wait to return!

The environment was amazing. Our server was A plus. And the food was some of the best we've ever tasted. We will be making this a regular spot everytime we come to NY.

Came in to see the VanGogh exhibit which is a short walk away. Searched for a tapas place and found this nice spot. Great place to eat and drink. Cool vibe with great service and great food.

This is our go to place for our friends get togethers. The food is consistently delicious and the atmosphere is intimate but not sleepy. Very warm and inviting and great for conversation. Staff is attentive but not disruptive and will gladly recommend dishes to try. The shared plate element is perfect and gives everyone the opportunity to try several dishes. They also have a back room perfect for larger groups or parties. Perfect for holiday get togethers. 10’s across the board!

Wonderfully delicious food. Creative preparations of everything from salads, veggies, paella, flatbreads, beef, pasta and fish. Small portions for sharing. Definitely save room for dessert

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

Manager was so rude to us. Went to inform her there might be a glitch with the OpenTable app in case others have issues because the reservation time changed on my app (I had the original OpenTable email too). She went you just called and changed your time. I was there 15 minutes, I definitely did not call and have a unique name so she most definitely did not hear the person on the phone clearly. (It's a restaurant during dinner time, it's loud.) Instead of admitting maybe it was someone else, she gave me such attitude for literally no reason. This place was special to us because my boyfriend said 3 words, but we'll gladly take our celebration elsewhere in the future. The food isn't very good and charge prices comparable to Scarpetta and Carbone for less quality and taste.

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!

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!
