Happy they are back. They can frankly seat more people outside on the street than they ever could in the small restaurant. Food is excellent as always. Properly portion tapas, salads, and entrees for sharing, so you can get a variety. Hope the full menu will return soon.

Just love Tia Pol, it is my go to restaurant in Chelsea. The staff are friendly and efficient and the food is excellent! Shrimp in oil, lemon chicken are both highly recommended dishes.

We LOVE this restaurant. We’ve been here once before and the food is always awesome. I have food allergies and they’ve been super accommodating—which those with food allergies know can be hard to find in a restaurant. The only thing we didn’t love was that they kinda forgot about us and didn’t come to take our order for like 20 minutes after sitting down which felt like a long time. But under the current conditions, everything was great. Thanks for being open!

while the service was phenomenal (considering the amount of people there), the food was only ok and slightly overpriced. the croquettes and lamb pinchos were very tasty, but the other plates (chorizo, garbanzos, can’t remember what else) were mediocre.

We were very happy that Tia Pol reopened. We used to go there regularly when we were in NYC 8 years ago and lived in Chelsea, and continue going when we returned this year and lived in the village.

The food is really good (I only missed the fava-beans spread this time..) the atmosphere is relaxed and the people working there are very nice.

Unfortunately we have to leave NYC, but look forward to returning to Tia Pol when we are back.

We walked in slightly disappointed as it's not big with uncomfortable high tops/stools to sit at. I convinced my husband to stay - the food was very good and the server was very knowledgeable (but seemed to be covering most of the restaurant). Okay value for the food. I would recommend it if you're looking for quite casual and a bit noisy, but seeking good tapas.

My favorite part of our dining experience was the service. The staff on 3/1/2020 at 12:30 PM were spectacular. They made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to assure a pleasant experience. Also, the food was delicious, try the chorizo, and the lamb skewers. I will definitely be back.

Have eaten at Tia Pol several times and it never disappoints. Some of our favorites include the garlic shrimp and lamb kebabs, but this time we ordered several specials and they were especially outstanding: flank steak with mushrooms was incredibly lean and flavorful, roasted beet salad was amazing, and the noodles with shredded short rib was out of this world. Their wine list is also really great. I opted for the rose, which was crisp and dry and a great balance with the food. Others in our group enjoyed the sangria. Wasn't wild about the almond cake for dessert, but the fried custard was a winner. Service is always friendly and on top of it, but realize that the place is always busy and they can get a little overwhelmed. It all works though! Highly recommend.

Menu and drink selection strikes the perfect balance to satisfy most diners. The front seating is perfect for a date/friend dining and back room with two large tables would be great for a larger group. Each table can seat six and possibly squeeze another person or two.

The tapas here were incredible and service was amazing! I specifically requested expedited service because we had to get to Sleep No More within an hour of sitting down and the server acknowledged my request was extremely attentive the whole time, making sure to keep us on schedule. I highly recommend this place for the incredible food and impeccable service!

Very good food served in a small but attractive room, good service, reasonable prices; we had deviled eggs, which were perfectly seasoned, delicious octopus and bean salad, jamon paquetitos, and a perfectly cooked, moist and tender beef short ribs served over swiss chard. Highly recommend.
