Food was very good, took longer than normal for the food to arrive. Others that arrived after us got their food before us. Other than that I would recommend it.

Everyone and everything at VinoTapa made for a really lovely experience. I rarely write restaurant reviews. I writing this because my daughter and I so enjoyed the food, the staff, the atmosphere, neighborhood - everything that went into the creation of a great meal.

Given the reviews, I expected MUCH more. At the table, our group ordered 5 different tapas. The food was amazingly average and everyone was disappointed. The noise/roar within the restaurant made it very difficult to even speak with others at our own table.

Food is great, deals are great. Service is less than stellar. Staff is only focused on turning over tables and I constantly feel as though I’m being rushed out of here.

Very good food and service. Lots of people eating and having fun so quite noisy but this made for a good atmosphere. Service was very fast - almost too fast - we could have gone slower and enjoyed the food and atmosphere for longer!

The tables were quite close together so not wasn’t as intimate for a date as I would’ve liked. The happy hour prices were great for manhattan. The portions were quite large for some of the dishes. I would definitely come back for an early dinner

Was craving for a Spanish Tapas spot and I came across this place after seeing good reviews. Luckily it was during happy hour so we ordered sangrias and their other special drinks that are delicioud! Definitely start off with them!

As for the food, we ordered Sticky Ribd(small rib dish), Stuffed Pimenton(stuffed pepper brisket) and chorizo with cheese. The ribs were tasty however it was a bit crunchy and overdone. As for the stuffed pepper brisket, it was juicy and tender but lacked any seasoning. The pepper was the saving grace for that dish. The chorizo and cheese was a good finish.

Overall, great ambiance and very nice staff. Will recommend to try this place out for sure.

Fried calamari with squid ink aoli was especially delicious, as was the fresh corn tapas. It's a really good value with lots of choices for different tastes. Outside seating was perfect.

What a surprising little gem. Fantastic outdoor seating and the wait staff was incredible. My wife has a garlic allergy and they went out of their way to accommodate. We will definitely be back

As usual, Vino Tapa was lovely! The spring peas tapas was extraordinary, and the Wolffer rose was delicious. Our waitress was very helpful in choosing a cheese and meat plate, which had a delightful quince condiment. My only disappointment was the chocolate mousse, which tasted sour.

Brunch was really delicious. They have a nice outdoor seating area as they’re on the side street. The noise from the construction on 3rd Ave was annoying but not their fault!

Pulpo. Red wine. Lamb. Asparagus with eggs and jambon. You can't go wrong. Outside seating was spacious enough. Inside seating is cool enough for the summer. We had a great time, and I'll be back very soon.

I can’t recommend this place enough! The menu is amazing... if you don’t get the marinated goat cheese or the f#%&ing steak, you’re missing out. Every time I need a place to meet out with girl friends or a good date night, I always come here.

Great place for after work happy hour. We ordered a handful of things to share and they were all great--but the absolute best was the blue cheese-stuffed dates, and the mushrooms!

It was good food and prices but the service was pretty bad. They weren’t accommodating at all and service took a long time. I had a question about a payment method options and the manager came over to speak to me and was extremely rude for no reason.

Love this little gem! The food is different, if you’re looking for sophisticated bar food. I can’t say enough about it and the wine! Omg delicious. Great little spot for a date or to catch up with friends as you can hear yourself talk. It’s a grown up vibe...which is appreciated. Keep it up!

Group of 6. We ordered tapas sampler. Very tasty. Only drawback was the food came very quickly and all together. Would have liked some pacing for the meal.

Amazing food and great service! Standouts were the goat cheese balls, the dates flatbread, and the shishito peppers. Ribs were forgotten and by the time we pointed out a missing item they run out. Manager was very accommodating and substituted the meatballs instead. The cocktails are the bomb as well! The smokey gin cocktail is a delightful show and a delicious drink! Everyone in the party was happy with their food and their drinks. Only cons are the noise level (you can have a comfortable conversation with the person next to you but that's about it) and the need to turn tables (no idea if the place has desserts since none were offered rather the check was dropped off. From sitting down to leaving 2 hours passed and they were politely and respectfully pushy to pay and head out). That added a very eh ending to an otherwise amazing dinner. Reservations are a must during peak times.

Everything about this experience is pretty good. Nothing is exceptional. The restaurant is fairly typical New York high top driven environment. Bit rough around the edges but that's okay.
The food is generally well prepared and well-seasoned. Again... pretty good.

Good place to sit, talk and eat from small plates. Service was very efficient and the vegan options selected for dinner were very good. Happy hour for drinks a bonus.
