    This is the place for seafood! We didn't have time for the paella, but the soup was good and at the tapas were tasty. Sharing is the way to go.

    Thanks so much, Deborah! We're glad you liked the seafood tapas. Hope you'll come by again to try the paella and more tasty tapas.

    It's a new restaurant, so they might be working the kinks out, but overall it wasn't the NYC taste profile I'm used to. It tasted like an average home cooked meal, and didn't hold up to tasty tapas that I was hoping for.

    Went to Tio Pepe for brunch with my friends. The wait staff was the best. Shout out to my boy Kevin. WE had a great time, food was fantastic. We all got the pollo torta, which was fantastic. The waiter was very attentive to refilling our drinks, which is all you can ask for at a bottomless brunch. Everyone at the restaurant was super friendly. 10/10 would go again.

    A fave spot to hit for brunch. Yummy food and delicious bottomless mimosas. Our server, Kevin was a gem! Attentive, funny - always made sure our glasses were full!! Will be back again! Get there for noon when they open, especially if you have a large party. If it’s just a small party, sit by the window to watch all pups that pass by.

    My friends and I had a BLAST there! Music playlist was early 2000s and earlier and it was great. New favorite brunch spot...? I think so. We did 8 people for boozy brunch; we did a 2:45 brunch so it wasn’t crowded and we had the back room all to ourselves. our glasses were only ever empty for less than a minute and the food really hit the spot. We tried the burger, steak sandwich, and chicken and waffles. The French fries were absolutely on point as well; my friends who got waffles (which comes without fries) loved them so much they got an extra order.

    The menu was designed as if it was a Tex-Mex Diner as they had a little of everything from fries to pizzas. First off, the guacamole was probably worst I have ever had and tasted like it came out of packaged container despite being made table side. The guacamole had way to much lime squeeze in, too many tomatoes, and probably hurting food cost. The salsa with the chips most likely came from a can. The paella was just ok, with the rice having no flavor and mussels not opening up during the cooking process. The fajitas were pretty good, but nothing I could not replicate at home. Furthermore, the fajitas were served with the same sour guacamole as table side and when asked for more tortillas, I was brought warm bread. The aforementioned means the staff are not trained on the food. Lastly, our tio Pepe fries came out after we were finished with our entrees. Not to mention, they were seasoned with paprika and the Parmesan coming from a packaged container. The combo of paprika and packaged Parmesan actually made a decent French fry taste bad while the ketchup served was most definitely not Heinz. For dessert, we had churros that tasted good, but were not cooked all the way through. For New York City, this place had no passion for food. Nothing tasted fresh and simple items like guacamole gave off a bad impression. I won’t even talk about service because the food needs a complete overhaul and the team needs to be retrained. If you need any help, I have been in the restaurant business for my entire career. I mostly feel bad for decent spots with bad food.

    Went to dinner on a Wed evening in Sept. We got a very good table by the open window which was great for people watching. Our appetizers and entrees were very good. The 1/2 pitcher of red sangria was perfect for 2 people to share. We would definitely go back.

    Great bottomless brunch! Came for my birthday with 8 others and service was great. They were quick to fill our glasses which doesn't happen often at bottomless brunch, but Tio Pepe was on top of it. We were pretty loud and obnoxious but the staff was fantastic. DEFINITELY going back soon!

    I've been to Tio Pepe a few times over the years and the food is always serviceable and the environment pleasant. On this trip, however, the music was unbearable. From the time you approach the restaurant, it's blaring and once inside we couldn't even hear the hostess. We were meeting friends and asked that the turn the music down. If they did it was negligeable. The food was decent, but conversation at the table among the 4 of us was impossible. I would not return as it was not a pleasant experience overall.

    Second visit for bottomless brunch and it was much quieter this time - maybe everyone was out enjoying the sunshine. Service was a little slow to start but got better as brunch wore on. Food was great and bottomless is good value for money. Will be back.

    The food was good. The staff was not particularly knowledgeable about the wine list and the service was overall nothing special, but that wasn’t a problem. The thing that bothered me the most was that I was able to make a reservation for “outside seating” when no such thing exists at Tio Pepe. The reason why this was so bothersome is that by the time your whole group is there on a Friday night... well, you don’t have much of an option for finding another place with outdoor seating without a really long wait. So, we had to settle for the inside and deal with music at volume fairly close to intolerable. Definitely not an experience I would like to repeat.

    Loved the atmosphere. Quickly made room for 7 of us on a VERY busy night in town. Everyone loved their food, and the mixed drinks were good. One girl with us asked twice for a Margarita and never got it, so they just took it off the bill. But that's why the Service didn't get 5 stars. It got louder as the crowd filled up the place, but we all could still hear each other.

    We all enjoyed our meals and were pleased with the service. Since we were able to be seated beside an area open to the outdoors, the high volume of music wasn't too troublesome. Other patrons were celebrating an event, so we were loathe to ask for it to be lowered. The bathroom was sparkling clean but was located down a flight of stairs. All restaurants should be required to notify people making reservations when the toilet is not accessible for everyone. Our little group was fine, but I have been with others who cannot navigate stairs (unrelated to age).

    Not sure if they messed up our reservation for 8 that was made on OpenTable, but we were seated about 10 mins after whoever greeted us at the door scrambled to put something together. We were seated in a crammed side room that seemed like a storage room/closet, at 4 high two-top circular tables that were pushed together. The servers treated us well and constantly checked up on us and refilled our drinks. However, at some point during the meal, a staff member placed a handwritten "VIP" sign on the doorway to the room we were seated in. The "sign" was on the back of an old receipt, so I don't know if that was to try to make us feel "special" for our reservation being forgotten, but we had plenty of laughs about it. The food was mediocre at best. I had the paella AM that was very soggy, with 6 slivers of chorizo that tasted more like kielbasa. Mimosas were extremely sweet. The rest of the restaurant was nicely decorated, so I'm more disappointed that we were crammed in a side room, rather than the restaurant owning up to their mistake and giving us the option to wait for a table that would've better accommodated the group. Would not recommend, nor would go back.

    Food was below average and expensive for the portion sizes (they gave a side salad with most of their entrees, which were ~$13-18+ each). The bottomless service was good though - our waiter was on top of refilling our drinks for the most part.
