Very disappointed in food this time. Ate last week and had an awesome experience. Looked forward to bacon wrapped dates all week. They came out burnt and tasted burnt as well.

Drove almost an hour for Tapas, and they did not disappoint! Loved their watermelon mule from the bar. We had meatballs, croquettes, empanadas and scallops AND THEN their dulce de leches crepe. Heaven!!

Stopped in to Tapas on Main for tapas and drinks on a Sunday afternoon. Service was a bit slow. Drinks were very good, but the food was disappointing. Calamari was very tough. Tuna was just ok--not very flavorful. Don't think we would go back.

Everyone had a really great time at tapas and my party was impressed with our server Emily. Juan Carlos is always a gem to speak to. My friends loved the different meatballs! The salad and crepe was wonderful

I understand places are short staffed…but the place wasn’t busy and the people that were there before us, either didn’t get what they ordered or never got their drinks! We sat for 20mins before someone brought us water! That was actually for the table next to us! Very disappointed!

Set in the beautiful historic downtown of Bethlehem. We enjoyed a small plate of spinach dip with chorizo and pita, followed by a spectacular paella. Also enjoyed a flight of sangria. Service was excellent.

I was very excited to bring my dad in for Father’s Day, since I’ve always had *great* meals at Tapas in the past, but this visit was pretty terrible. My food was fine, but my dad’s salad was missing ingredients and his pork chops were awful - pressed paper thin, burnt and tough. Our server was perfectly nice, but seemed… green. When asked for a cup of black coffee, she informed us the restaurant had made the decision “not to prioritize” fresh coffee on this busy day, so it would be from the single pot they’d made that had been sitting for hours. Brewing a new pot was not an option. It was one of the most bizarre service experiences I’ve ever had at a restaurant.

Service was poor. Ordered a strawberry salad. Received a bowl of spinach and strawberries. No feta nothing… The floors were dirty. Highly dissatisfied. I waited 2 weeks for a brunch reservation. To be disappointed. Lost a longtime customer yesterday.

Great service! Our server really helped us select great items and the right amount of food. We were never rushed! And what we ended up getting was amazing - meat & cheese plater, lamb chops, split a salad, and apple empanadas. We didn't have room for dessert, but we did have room for 1 more sangria!

Tapas on Main had decent food but it wasn’t anything special and would not make me want to go back. Way too expensive for what it was and the experience was overall disappointing.

Very cool place with a great drink menu! The food was very good, and the hardest decisions of the day were which plates to get and how many! It was a little uncomfortable with all the plates around the table and trying to figure out where to put things, but I would definitely recommend Tapas On Main!

Upon arrival, the hostess told us she didn’t know how to confirm my reservation to receive the Open Table points. We ordered fries, and the waitress brought the wrong ones. I ordered no cheese on my salad. It came out with cheese on it. Sent it back. Came back with no cheese and no walnuts. Not a good experience. Will not be returning.

The service was impeccable! From the warm smile and greeting when we entered, to being seated. The staff was great, we had excellent food, drinks and service. We always felt that we were a priority but not by hovering over our table. We were celebrating a friend getting her Phd and it was so nice to celebrate her and have great food and drinks. Everyone was so nice, even when there was a minor back up in the kitchen we were informed of a slight wait, we were checked on to make sure that we were okay with this, apologized to which there was no need for because there were several tables inside and a packed outside. The wait was minimal and we were kept apprised accordingly. It was truly a great celebration of a great friend at a great place. If you have not been go to Tapas and have a wonderful evening.

Only thing I can truly rate them on is service or lack thereof. Had reservations, was seated, and that was it. Never saw a waiter in about 40 minutes even after checking back in with the host twice. It wasn’t that busy. We finally just walked out.

we made a reservation for outside, when we arrived we were told they don’t make reservations for outside, yet it was an option to choose from on open table. we were told rudely by the hostess that we could eat at the bar or leave. we sat at the bar for a moment, the bartender was rude and unpersonable. even though it was on 70 degrees outside it was super dark, hot and humid, and smelled of eggs at the bar, so before eating we left a small tip and left without even ordering. super off-putting, no thanks.

The service was not good. Our server was on her phone, didn’t deliver any of our food she had other people do it. We got our drinks after our food and our drink orders were wrong. Also the hostess were not nice at all. Such a shame the food is good but the service is not…
