    Hadn't been is a few years and it's better than I remembered. Fun low key atmosphere with great food and a really pleasant staff. I'm anxious to go back again and deep dive further into the menu.

    Amazing experience on Valentine’s Day which is no small feet. From being greeted by Leah, to being served by Johnathan, the entire evening was wonderful! Fantastic food and service across the board on what is a restaurant’s hell night!! Rob the manager was very kind as well and we look forward to returning and trying their sister restaurant across the street as well!

    Getting together with school friends only everyone is all grown up. We parents, still and, happily paid the check. The staff couldn’t have been more thoughtful. The food and wine pleased everyone- from the au courant to the curmudgeon. I am thrilled to have such a high quality place to go with a disparate group.

    Txikito is perfection. It is the perfect neighborhood go-to and worth traveling a long distance to experience. The food is delicious. There is a real chef in the kitchen - the ingredients fresh and seasonal, the preparation inspired. We love Spanish food and this is as good as it gets outside of Spain's Basque region. The service is impeccable, with friendly faces we have been privileged to get to know over the many years we have have been going there. We love the vibe - casual with a low buzz and usually quite comfortable for talking. (Only exception is the occasional large noisy party!) We have been going there since it opened too long ago to remember and have never had a disappointing meal, which in itself is rare. We eat out often, cook with passion ourselves and this remains our very favorite place.

    Every single thing we ordered was delicious — super high quality and flavorful Spanish dishes, and if the organ meats aren't your thing no worries! The vegetable and fish dishes were what we stuck with and they were amazing. The service was also excellent, helpful and friendly but not at all stuffy or intrusive. It's located on an unassuming corner of 9th Ave in Chelsea, so we think it's super underrated. Go and eat here, you won't regret it.

    I used to love this place with basque cheese platter and Garnacha wine from Navarra. Nothing good lasts forever. No more cheese plate. The wine is overpriced and cost almost triple compare to the wine shops. The quality of wine is not the same either. Still decent place in the area for drinking wine with a small plates.

    Food was delicious and so unique and flavorful. The portions are very small so don’t come super hungry unless you plan to try a ton of plates. Two friends and I shared three small plates and 3 medium plates/entrees and everything was incredible. The cocktail, wine, and cider menu was also lovely. my favorites were the pulpo, the desnudos, and a cauliflower special that included chanterelle mushrooms.

    The food is unusual so it is wise to consult your server before ordering. Ours was extremely knowledgeable not only about the food but as an aspiring sommelier, also about the wine. The space is divided up so the noise level is civilized. I recommend this restaurant highly. Enjoy!

    Start with a citrusy G&T. Crab toast is a must, as are Codfish croquettes. Just order everything with jamon or anchovies, and you’ll be fine. And try the vermouth cocktails.

    Not impressed Service was not good. No real ambiance. The small plates were tasty, but the other three sections of the menu were not good. Suckling pig was very dry. Salted cod was very bland, way too salty and the texture was off. I suggest they change their format to be a bar with tapas appetizers and drop the other 3 sections of the menu.
