Txikito Ratings and Reviews
The food is the most important part of this of course, and the food really was quite good. In particular the roast suckling pig was absolutely fantastic. The my biggest complaint about the places the ambience the tables were incredibly small especially for a tapas restaurant it made no sense. They are basically sitting for people a tattoo top. The server was very helpful and knowledgeable and I have no complaints about that. Overall it's a great restaurant and is worth a look for sure.
Love this place. Every person I ask to meet me here winds up obsessed with it too. Great drinks (beer, sangria, cocktails, amazing Spanish wines) and Basque food for sharing, whether you are veg, carnivore, pescatarian. Love the croquetas, the salt cod, meatballs, fries with dip, the suckling pig and all their daily specials.
Had a wonderful meal here with family...service was friendly and attentive, wine was spot on, authentic tapas was great! Don’t miss the deviled crab and jamon iberico pinxtos, the squid ink with shrimp and jamon, roast suckling pig. Manager came by to welcome us, which was a lovely touch.
We love Txikito. We've been many times and also love to bring friends with us. At times the service can be a bit dozy but this time it was very good though we had to occasionally flag our server down. The staff can seem a bit overworked but the food is always outstanding and it is definitely our go to place for great food and casual dining. HIGHLY recommended.
I had never been to a Basque restaurant before, but the menu looked interesting; so we went. We thought the food delicious. The small plates work well, because you can eat some of a lot of dishes. Good choices of wine, we had a red Rioja for $52/bottle. Plymouth Gin is the house gin, so drink well and order your martinis extra-dry.
We were a diverse group and everyone went away satisfied and happy with the food
I went to Txikito with a friend whose grandmother is Basque (my friend is from Argentina). The food is genuine Basque, creative and very delicious. This is a "small plates" restaurant. Dishes were brought in sequence so that each could be enjoyed fully. We shared about 7 dishes (2 appetiser and 5 "main" small plates). Not large eaters, 6 would have been just fine. Everything was interesting, tasty, perfect. Service was great, the staff made recommendations and we were happy with everything. Cocktails were also really good. With cocktails, wine, small plates, desert and coffee, we spent $200.00 for two people - so this is a $$$ restaurant. It's definitely worth it for special occasions and a taste treat.
We were looking for a great place to meet up with my daughter and her boyfriend for a meal after a midweek Broadway matinee, and we wanted to find something away from the hustle of Times Square and the theater district. Enter Txikito, a wonderful gem tucked away in Chelsea, with a modern take on Basque cuisine and an interesting collection of Spanish wines.
The space is well laid out, aided by the beautiful and warm fall evening that allowed them to open the front of the restaurant to the street seating, giving the whole place an open air feel. The crowd was lively, but not too loud for easy converstation, and the staff was attentive without hovering.
Our dinner selections included the Pulpo (octopus carpaccio), Txipiron Encebollado (squid ribbons), Maijuli (tomatoes, peppers and Jamon with a Basque anchovy), and the Arraultza (sofrito with chorizo and quail egg). The food was flavorful and subtle and beautifully presented.
We started with a glass of the Herrigoia Zuri Rioja Alavesa Malvasia and some olives, while we waited for everyone to arrive. During dinner we had the Vina Alberdi Reserva (a Tempranillo / Cabernet Suvignon blend from Rioja) and the Basilio Izquierdo Acodo Tinto (also from Rioja).
All in all this was a wonderful meal in a superb environment, and I would highly recommend Txikito to anyone looking for a great spot for dinner in Manhattan.
Every dish that came out was some of the best food we ever had. Spanish tapas, especially styled from the Basque region, is one of my favorite cuisines in the world. The food here transported me to this region very deftly. You’d be hard pressed to find better tapas.
Oh-boy where do you start. If you're thinking of going to Basque Country and want to try before you buy this is the place to go. The restaurant fitout is simple and rustic but don't let that bother you, take a seat and start ordering. Everything we tried, and we tried a lot, was delicious. The tastes were authentic and the menu options plentiful. Make sure you try one of the specials, we had the butterflied de-boned sea trout and that was a highlight. Don't know a lot about wine from Basque but the staff pointed us in the right direction. A must go for foodies that are up for something different.
We recently went to Txikito for my birthday. We were a party of 6 people. The food was good, but we had terrible service. Our waitress was very rude and unpleasant. From the moment we sat down, she had an attitude. It was really odd. I've lived in NYC for a long time, and I haven't had this bad of service in a long time. It was a disappointing experience, since it was my birthday, and she made our entire table upset. Also, the hostess was not friendly either. I didn't feel like they were very accommodating to larger parties.
