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.

Very friendly service , cozy seating , some hits and misses on the menu - tortilla, garlic shrimp and churros were good, scrambled eggs were so so only ( had to order something for the kid). Wanted to mention we came to check out this place because it was listed on our old copy of Lonely Planet New York from 2007 and the resto is still here today (2020) so that speaks for itself!

Food good/fine, but seemed quite basic, and not as great as it was years ago. Not much seating space & all hight-top stools and a few benches or bar seating.

Food/Sangria was great. The tables are VERY small, so it was cramped for a group of four. Would return.

I work at 26th and 11th and there are not a ton of great sit down lunch options nearby and going to Hudson Yards is out of the question...gross. 6 of my colleagues and I dined together at lunch and Tia Pol expertly accommodated allergies, preferences, budget and time. SUPER DELISH and great vibe too. Highly highly highly rec.
