What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.8

Tia Pol is an ultimate Infatuation First/Early In The Game Date spot. Take the edge off, have a couple of glasses of wine, and maybe some sangria while you're at it too. Conversation will be flowing freely, you'll be sharing quality small plates, and before you know it, you'll wind up back in her apartment listening to Lady GaGa while you play grab-ass on the couch.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

I absolutely love it! Tía Pol was the best choice to catch up with a friend over a glass of cava and cheese plates. We tried a few tapas and we enjoyed every bite. I think our favorite was definitely the plato de quesos variados. They pair the cheese with bread and raisins or olives. We also got a bottle of cava rosé which was so worth the price and just went well with everything. I've been telling everyone about Tía Pol and will be dining there again

Perfect place! Definitely helped to have a reservation. I am a celiac(extreme gluten free)but i went with a vegetarian and two others and we had a fantastic time. Easy to find food for us all to share. Service was great and wonderful wine!

Good food and authentic Tapas well presented. Good selection of wines and good service. Some of the Tapas was slow to arrive, but allowed ample time for conversation. Got the 6 person booth at the back - and this was the ideal nook for a great fun evening with a small group!

Good choice for neighborhood gem. Person greeting us was especially accommodating and patient and our waiter was extremely friendly. Is a very small bar / Tapas restaurant. There were quite a few choices both on the menu and specials and they provided a very flavorful dinner. Especially enjoyed the soft shell crab special, mussels, clams, and lamb meatballs. Many of the seafood choices had flavorful broth but we felt uncomfortable asking for bread which was an essential part of the dish as the light sauces scrumptious. Only complaint which is very legitimate is that we ordered six items and five of the items literally arrived at our table within 2 minutes of each other which created somewhat of a rushed feeling. Most Tapas places offer you new plates after possibly three courses in this was not done. If we were to return which is a possibility, we would literally order to dishes and after we finish them order the next 2 and then so on and so forth. It may be food for thought for the kitchen. Overall take into account how friendly the staff was, the quality of the yummy food would land it a B GRADE

Hadn't been here in years, and was in the neighborhood and enjoyed it as much as I used to!
I've been back two times in the last 3 months. Great tapas and interesting, reasonable wine selection. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Glad I 'rediscovered' this little spot.

Service was good and quick. The glass of red wine was too cold though. That’s a pity because I knew it was a good wine and if you order some quick tapas, we cant warm it up till then.. Tortilla was a bit weird because they use different types of potatoes I guess. It would be nice if they had options to have some bread to eat with some tapas.

We were sitting by a large party who may have had a little too much to drink - very loud. Other than them - very relaxing place. Great service, excellent food. Would 100% go again. You absolutely should make a reservation or you’ll have to wait for a table.
