Slow service, even at 4:45pm before the dinner rush. Was told I might not be able to have a small change in the Spanish baked potato, which no one on the service staff seemed to know what was exactly in it, because “the kitchen doesn’t like it”. No menus and there was no WiFi or service in the back corner of the restaurant. Ordered a steak which was ordered as medium and came out very over cooked, risotto for other meal was very al denote and dry. Previous visits service was slow as well but food was executed better.

The server never asked if we wanted drinks took forever to get her to come back she was rude and unpleasant for no reason.. they put us in the French part of the restaurant right next to the door,with avaailable seating in tapas. So my valentines experience was bad and unpleasant. If it wasn’t for my patient wife I definitely would have talked to a manager about my experience

Went for the restaurant week menu and everything I had was delicious! Started off with a flight of sangrias! My favorite was the honey lime one. Appetizers included spinach dip, crispy cauliflower, and beer cheese soup. The spinach dip with the Gouda cheese is a must have. Ordered lobster ravioli and carne con huevos for our entrees and both did not disappoint! My favorite part was the potato cake topped with a sunny side up egg that was served with the steak. Then, we ended the night with a Cinnamon Toast Crunch crepe! It was just the right amount of sweetness to top off what was a delicious meal. Definitely can’t wait to come back and try other items on the menu.

Food selection was minimal and flavor was lacking. I was excited to try the place out but sadly I was underwhelmed. Maybe we will try lunchtime instead.

Food was very good but bar menu was very limited . Service was ok But I’m sure due to the Covid restrictions they are on a limited staff. Nice place for appetizers!

The eggplant meatballs were my absolute fav! The total wasn’t pricey at all. The drinks were not too strong and not too light just the way I love it. I have absolutely no complaints about this place.

The food and the wait staff were EXCELLENT. Very friendly and engaged. Thankfully that was the case because upon entering Tapas, the host was not friendly at all. Barely acknowledged us and couldn't be bothered to walk us all the way to our table. Overall we were very pleased and will go here again.

Not great. Service was pretty bland. Waitress never even introduced herself and was pretty absent the entire time. Food wasn't anything special. Got pork belly, steak tips, crab croquettes and meatballs. Pork and meatballs were pretty bad. Didn't care for them at all. Steak tips were good and the potatoes that came with them were nice. Crab croquettes were good, but overall pretty boring. $45 bucks later and we left hungry. Didn't even finish the meatballs or pork belly. We tried it. Didn't care for it. Won't be back.

Excellent food and great service. One suggestion would be that the menu could change up a bit! We've gone a few times and now have run out of things to try

Only had apps and drinks but food was pretty good. We really enjoyed the eggplant meatballs and fries. They were out of 3 types of beer that my husband tried to order. I had the three Gypsies sangria flight with vanilla chai, pumpkin and cinnamon spiced red. I enjoyed the cinnamon spiced red the best. We sat outside at a sidewalk table and had to endure all the people walking by, which is not Tapas fault. It was a good enough experience. There is no reason we wouldn’t return, other than a lot of other choices on Main St.

We actually ordered from the Cachette menu - their crepes are amazing - the Mexican and Le Poulet are our favorites - nice wine - great service - ate outside in their "parklets" - the heat lamp was out of kerosene, however - boo.

Food was great. Sat outside and food came out nice and hot. Really good red sangria. Good flavor and not too sweet. Service was ok. Probably overwhelmed by a very warm day in Nov.

Food was great! Our waitress was not pleasant. Flat affect didn’t even say thank you or re-fill our water. Went to use the restrooms- awful! The ones sink was clogged and filled also smelled. The other smelled too and did not have soap. Was very perturbed to see a server exit the bathroom prior to me. He obviously did not use soap to wash his hands since the dispenser was broken when I went in!!
