    We had the artichokes and mushrooms for tapas and paella as the main dish. It was excellent. We sat outside which is why the noise level was high. There was four of us so we also shared crepes for dessert. We had a great experience.

    We had a lovely visit from our son and his significant other who were visiting from Oregon. They stayed at the Hotel Bethlehem and so we decided to go Tapas on Main. We had a nice dinner with cocktails. It was not that crowded inside, so the noise levels were reasonable. Service was good and food was mostly properly prepared. The evening was enjoyable.

    A true taste treat! With three menus to choose from, one is "spoiled for choice" - we opted for three smaller tapas plates plus a larger Coca de Carne (which I'd HIGHLY recommend). The sangria was perfect as well, and the whole restaurant was "humming" with contented customers, just like us! If you find your way to downtown Bethlehem, do check out Tapas on Main - you won't be disappointed!

    We've enjoyed Tapas on Main in the past. This time, not so much. Two of us had the steak frite and for both the meat was tough (not at all like we remember it from past visits). And service was slow and non-attentive. We'll still be back I'm sure.

    What a delightful experience! Charming atmosphere and delicious food, we had the Shared plates…Grilled Artichokes, Bacon-wrapped Dates and Crab Croquettes. Each was artistically presented and proved to be an epicurean delight. Be sure to save room for the Dulce de Leche Crepes with vanilla ice cream. The beverage menu was quite interesting and included a large selection of Sangria options. The Limoncello- Blueberry was potent! My dining partner enjoyed the Colada Sangria. It was a superb meal, affordable priced with dining al fresco in the heart of Bethlehem. Don’t miss it!

    When we arrived we got seated rather quick. Our food came out and was a bit disappointed with the large size Paella ( I would assume a proper Spanish size paella would be to share and realistically its a meal for one). The French sandwich was good. We were never asked to get our drinks refilled or our water. Really no bread in site, they brought out a plate of crostini, never heard of a restaurant not have bread especially for the sauce. Not going to rush back. Was overall disappointed with our experience.

    Tapas on Main is one of my favorite restaurants. Everyone that’s ever gone with me has always been happy with their food & eager to return. This time was a chance to get together with a friend I’d not seen in months. The server was very gracious to allow us time to chat :-) and I really appreciated it!

    Tapas items needed more bread. The best part of garlic shrimp is dipping the bread which is not possible with only 3 slices. Also filet tips were a but chewey. My previous experience was great so I would try again

    Awesome variety of food and incredible taste. This Spanish Tapas restaurant also offer delectable food from France. We did not try any French dishes they have a great menu and the French dishes we saw served looked fabulous. It was a very warm evening when we dined so we ate indoors. However, they have a large and comfortable outdoor seating area too.

    It's a tapas bar, so we ordered six items for a party of 4 to share. None were really good. Three of them were only half finished at the end. The food quality seemed to be down from our last visit in 2021. Service was ok, but food delivery was slow -- that seemed to be a kitchen issue rather than our server who was attentive. I may give this place another try after six months or so, perhaps they've lost some of their prior kitchen staff and need time to regroup.

    It was for fathers Day ! We love going there like theee times a year a holiday or a special occasion . It was so disappointing this time ! I request half both and table because I had three people I even called and told them . When we got there they put us we’re ever they wanted . And there were all booths open:( . I didn’t want to complain . But then we got a girl that didn’t know the menus we new it better then her . She was so not ready to be a server . She kept forgetting g stuff and never checked on us once during are visit . This was a big change from last year. Management should make everyone know the menus before going on the floor that’s what nice restaurants do . .. the quality of the food seemed different as well and not taste the same . We really like talus on main but really disappointed period sadly maybe I will not recommend this restaurant anymore to my friends . That want to try tapas..

    Gave it a second chance, not sure we will be going back. A tapas restaurant at the bare minimum should be able to time out your dishes… they brought everything at once and we literally had no space for all the plates. Tables are 18 inches from your neighbors, get cozy!
