I first went there on a Friday with my sister pre-theater for my birthday. It was so good I went back again with the next day with my husband and 2 teenage boys pre-theater. I know I'm a lucky gal. I reordered Chiparones (grilled baby squid), Pulpo a la Parrilla (grilled octopus w/ tomato, onion, jalapeño, avocado, zucchini, chickpeas & pesto because they were so good. Both nights I ordered tapas. All were so good and I'm definitely going back because there's more things to try. The service was attentive and the waitress was so nice and patient because we kept ordering things. It's a definite must!!

Nice outside seating area. But do not sit under the grape vine. We had bugs falling on us and the table.

Every time I've been to NY for the past three times, I've been to Sangria 46. I love their sangrias, their food is very good, their prices are reasonable (remember you're in NY), the wait staff has always been friendly and pleasant, and the ambiance is inviting. I would recommend it!!!

I expected better from a Restaurant Row establishment. The peaches in the special strawberry and peach sangria were from a can (it's peak peach season, people!). The house salad dressing was absolutely flavorless; skirt steak was just as devoid of flavor and came out with overcooked, sad steamed vegetables. The empanadas were wet and mushy. My husband's paella wasn't bad, but I've had much better.

We went for an 5:30 dinner before an early (7 PM) Broadway show. We ordered a la carte, instead of from the price-fixed choices. The portions are huge, and every dish, from chips and salsa to chorizo appetizer to main courses was excellent. We were out in plenty of time for the show. Good place to go pre-theater.

I went to celebrate my birthday with a group of friends. We had a good time. The food had mixed reviews. Some of the seafood was overcooked. But the manager/owner was very accommodating, she took good care of us. And even gave us a round of shots. The customer service we received is what stood out. I've been before on a date and the food was great. Maybe it was an off day.

The tapas were disappointing. The Gambas al ajillo barely tasted of garlic. It was a tomato based sauce, Spanish, but not al ajillo. The “Argentine empanadas” has a thin limp, soggy crust. The worst I’ve ever had, here in NYC, in Mexico, or Argentina! The filling was at best passable.

The steak was a good portion, and cooked to the correct temperatures. It was served with onions that could have been sautéed a little longer. The potatoes were good.

It was a date night meal before the theater. Good thing we are adventurous as we had a good time, but we won’t be back.

There was a table howling with laughter that you could hear throughout the restaurant. They were obviously having a good time.

Life is too a short to eat mediocre food.

I don't often write reviews, but I feel I should share about my experience at Sangria 46. I was in the mood for savory Latin food and we were on our way to a show in midtown. Yelp made this sound like a pretty good bet. It was not.
- The food was bland (the shredded beef special, which was more peppers than beef) or overly vinegary (the chicken special, with a side of rice and beans).
- When we mentioned that there wasn't much beef in the (overpriced) special dish, we were told that the chef measures out a specific portion of beef for each serving and that my companion had gotten a fair share. Perhaps he scored a point on accuracy, but he lost two on customer service.
- The sangria was ok - not the best or worst, but definitely not up to what you expect for a place with the word in its name.
- We sat on the patio, which seemed a lovely option on a nice summer evening. Alas, the restaurant air conditioning unit was overhead and made conversation anywhere on the patio tough. We should've gone inside, but it was too cold.

I know, I sound like The Princess & the Pea or Goldilocks. In fact, we're fairly easy-going and were just looking for a slightly above average dining experience. I wish we had braved the noise at Havana Central, a midtown staple where you can always have a very tasty meal, great drinks and live music at a good price.

Sangria46 was gracious enough to accept our late reservation as well as our request for outdoor seating. On this particular night, however, the service was incredibly slow. I never thought (with a 6:30 reservation) that we'd be in danger of missing the start of an 8PM show, which was only a few blocks away. Once the outdoor patio crowd thinned out, we (along with the couple to our side) seemed to be forgotten.

There was a particularly long wait for our entrees. I ordered the skirt steak after being told that the arroz con pollo would take 40 minutes; however, the steak, as well as my wife's order, took just about that time to arrive to our table. Thankfully, we were both satisfied with our dishes.

The ambiance of the outdoor patio is a nice feature of this restaurant. Its location on restaurant row is certainly ideal for a pre-show dinner or drinks.

Despite the slow service, we would return to Sangria46 (with hopes that we just caught them on an off-night).

First time here. Secured a last minute OpenTable reservation during the pre-theater rush so it was a bit crowded when we arrived but emptied out quickly and then steadily started refilling while we enjoyed a leisurely meal. Great atmosphere with nice outdoor seating in back. The food is the main headline, with a variety of fantastic tapas dishes that were amazing. We didn't try entrees or desserts, as a variety of the small plates were plenty. The wine list was also very good. Service was a little slow at times but it was easy enough to flag any server passing by to request more water. Everyone was very friendly. We will definitely return.

Very nice place to eat in the NYC Theater District. Great pre-theater but get there early if you want paella as it takes a minimum 20 minutes to prepare. The grilled Pulpo (Octopus) a la Parrilla, was fantastic. It was so tender and delicious. The smell of the Pulpo (Octopus) a la Gallega from the adjoining table was very appetizing as well. We also had grilled Shrimp a la plancha on a bed of mixed veggies, with a side order of white rice. The Paella Valenciana was another hit. It was a very large portion, certainly enough for 2 to share. Great value for the food. The flan was average, served with a dollop of what seemed like canned whipped cream. The restaurant itself was nice and clean. Professional, quick service. Definitely worth going to!

Don't get the filet of beef. I asked for medium rare and it came out grey and dry. Sent it back and instead split my husband's paella, which wasn't bad. Restaurant much noisier than I'm used to, but probably typical for NYC.

Sangria with lunch, brunch or dinner, with small plate options, pre-fixe options and a la carte options. We enjoyed a summer afternoon in their open air patio, with a good pitcher of Sangria and a couple of seafood lunches. All in all it was leisurely, relaxed and friendly. Food was satisfying but we did not have a chance to try more authentic offerings. Will be sure to come back and order a variety of tapas dishes.
