I like the ambient of the place. It is cozy and welcoming. I have been here before once. However, this time there were so many details and things that needed improvement:
- The owner should have had more personnel attending to the customers. There was only the bartender and the chef. I feel sorry for them, they were maxed out and unable to keep up with the demand. They did their best to keep up, but it should not be on them.
- We got our appetizers before we got any drinks that had been previously ordered
- We had to wait close to 1 hour to get our main dishes
- We did not get any water until we asked for it
- The cost of the appetizers were too expensive for the amount and quality of the food
- Some of the dishes like to Spanish meat balls and some other patatoe dish were dry or overheated by the time they got to the table. $18 for like 5 or 6 shrimps and another $5 to add some pasta, a bit too much. Same goes with the meal balls, a few for $16, plus $5 for some pasta on the side.
- The dessert $12 it was sold to us as some Strawberry delight, it was just a piece of cake randomly decorated with a strawberry on the side.
- the wine was good at $47
- the logistics - not good for winter. there should be a secondary door to step in. Each time someone walked in, we got hit with the freezing cold weather. We could feel like 2/3 into the back of the room. It was uncomfortable to be cold.
It was one of my best friends birthday, I do not think I return to this place.

Went out for V-day - servers were knowledgeable and super friendly. Made recommendations and suggested wine pairing. Food was good for sharing between the two of us - variety of Mediterranean flavors, and reasonable portions for the Tapas selections. A small, quiet venue with only 5 2-seater tables and one booth, with additional seating at the counter / bar. Servers worked hard to try and keep an empty table between the couples on V-day, bit as expected a quaint romantic place like this did eventually fill up. As it did, it was hard not to hear the conversation next door, but all in all the perfect atmosphere for our evening. We both left satisfied and had an extremely enjoyable dinner with a bottle of wine for about $100.

I did not feel that the food, while fine, was worth the price.

Great food and an attentive server. Time to update the furniture. The table was a bit sticky, the result of aging laquer losing its strength from repeated use over the years.

Food and service were fantastic. The cinnamon pull apart dessert was a great way to end the meal. It wasn't very busy that Thursday night so food came out quick. Parking was hard to find around that area though!

As a result of the Thanksgiving long weekend the restaurant was pretty quiet with only a couple of other patrons dining at the time we were. The service was fantastic and the food delicious. They had a nice selection of wine and a good range of menu options for all types of dietary restrictions/preferences. Will definitely dine here again in the near future.

In the past this place seemed to have way more Value for the amount/portion of food You received, however it seems now the portions are smaller, and less care has gone into the creation of the tapas 😞

The service is excellent!

What a great location, great staff outstanding decor. The food was good the cocktails were great. It is a bit pricey for the quality of the food, but an overall good experience. I would recommend cocktails and 1 or 2 tapas. The Humas Pizza was our favourite.

Tapa Vino has a romantic ambience, great food, and excellent service. Though a little pricey, you would likely spend a similar amount at most places you go to nowadays for a good meal, drinks, and dessert. My wife and I went for our anniversary and had wine (of course), the patatas bravas (excellent), the prosciutto-wrapped bocconcini (great), and the spicy chorizo (not spicy at all). The wine was great and the dessert was very delicious. I would go back to try more of their tapas (good portions), and more of their wine!

Amazing every time I come here. Great selection of food (including plenty of tapas for vegetarians), amazing service (even on Valentines day when it was very busy). The food is delicious. The atmosphere is great - very small restaurant with few tables makes for a very cozy and romantic evening. Good selection of wine. Would highly recommend.

Great date! Wine was nice and dry, and on special! The new Arancini was delicious! Temp inside was on the cool side, but we ended up snuggling side by side on the bench, so maybe that was a plus anyway. Will be back.
