Socarrat, the quintessence of the perfect paella and for which the restaurant is named, is the delectable, sensuous crust that forms on the bottom of the paella pan when the liquid is rendered and the rice reaches its peak of succulence. The menu, an authentic array of delicious dishes from the regions of Spain specializing in traditional tapas with an accent on paella and fideua (which substitutes fried noodles for rice) that can be characterized as a true exploration for the palette.

I love this place for many reasons. It reminds me of Barcelona a lot. The food is always great. The staff is friendly. They have flamenco nights, the only downside is that they are never on the weekends and because I live so far I can’t always go there. When we were there on Tuesday, the owner or manager said hi to us and ask us how our food was. Also seemed a little saddened by the fact that we couldn’t stay too long to enjoy the flamenco. I love flamenco and I love this place and I will go back again.

4 friends and I dined at Socarrat for a bachelorette party, and had an amazing time. The service was outstanding and the staff both friendly and knowledgeable. The 5 of us shared 6 tapas and a lobster paella dish, in addition to some sangria. Everything was really delicious, and most serving sizes were slightly larger than expected for tapas. The paella was definitely the highlight of the meal, complete with an entire lobster.

Ambiance is perfect and food delicious! Perfect for a date, gathering with friends or family. Upbeat Spanish music and wonderful waitresses. Mostly bar stool seating with some standard height tables. Came with my parents and elderly grandmother on a Friday night: Andres the manager was able to accommodate us with a standard height table which I’m super grateful for. Would definitely go back!

Great food, we had the classic paella and it was a little bit burn but it tasted it really good! Sangria was perfect! Only regular thing was our waiter, we saw he was very into other tables, we could tell how he would service other tables better than ours.... but still a very good place, my favorite for happy hours and great appetizers.

Phenomenal food but inattentive staff that copped an attitude with our group when THEY made a mistake on the bill. This certainly left a bad taste in our mouths. The issue was eventually resolved, yet overall I am disappointed by our experience.

I was looking forward to coming here. My friend and I went for brunch. The servers were nice people but service was completely disorganized. We had to find our waiter, several different people served our table. What confused me is how empty the restaurant was.
The food was even more disappointing. I ordered a spanish tortilla. It was not at all fresh, I felt as if I was eating left overs. In addition it was way too greasy. The mimosa were orange juice with a splash of champagne.
They forgot to pack our dessert which was part of the prix fixe we paid for.
Nice people but terrible service and food was not good at all :(
I doubt I will return.

Socarrat Paella bar is excellent. The food is consistently good and the wines are interesting (and of course good!). This was my first time at the Nolita location and I found it a bit more comfortable in terms of seating than the Chelsea location which I've been to many times. But in all the essentials it was much the same and lived up to the high standards of food I know from the Chelsea location.

That had to be the worst Tapas place I've ever been to. The food had no flavor and tasted like it was all frozen nothing fresh. The only perk was that the sangria was good. Wish I would have ordered a pitcher of it, maybe the food would have tasted better. The place is just awful, stay clear.

Always a great time on Tuesday’s for flamenco night! I take friends and family and I even have gone solo dolo and sketched while I enjoyed the tip tapping of flamenco heels on a wood deck. The Privana Pinot Noir is my go to, and the tapas are all amazing. The pork belly and Brussels sprouts are also great. All in all, it’s a great place. And it’s not a bit loud. It’s VERY loud. But it’s also not pretentious! It’s so amazing to come into a restaurant and be absolutely blown away by the talent. Cheers.

Enjoyed the food very much. Unfortunately, from the second my party and I arrived they were trying to rush us out. They told us our table was reserved in an hour and a half and we had to be gone. We were a group of 8 people - enough to make money on. I stood up to use the restroom and they already started to clear my place as if I was leaving that second. I like the staff at the other socarrat locations SO MUCH MORE.

Came here for NYE brunch. Our waiter was super attentive and kept the unlimited sangria flowing. The food was delicious. The croquetas and patatas bravas brought us back to Spain. The paella had the perfect amount of crunch and flavor. Would def come back.

Overall experience was amazing. This was the first time I had experienced paella and it more than I had expected. We had a reservation for the evening yet we arrived much earlier than we anticipated. My friends and I decided to grab a drink yet the hostess was kind enough to seat us at next available. The waiter explained the menu perfectly and also offered suggestions. The food was delicious and flavorful. The atmosphere was on the loud end and tight as you walk around so be prepared. My friends and I were still able to have a conversation without having to yell. I would come back again.
