Great music, friendly staff and amazing food.
Brunch is great. Multiple drink choices and food selection is very good. 2 hrs booze instead of regular 1.5 hrs. Reservations a must on Saturday but, Sunday’s are not as busy
It was our first visit and turned out to be a pleasant experience. The food was very good and service excellent. Seating was limited, although we had an early reservation and many tables were open.
I adore this place. I go here as often as I can for happy hour. Their food is fantastic - you must get the sticky ribs!!! Irina is the BEST waitress and their manager is just awesome. Perfect place for after work socializing.
It was really good! The food came out quick and was delicious. The noise level was a little much and I felt myself screaming at times - otherwise, would be back!
So nice for Valentine’s Day! They even made place cards that said “reserve for Nicole”. Food was awesome as always
Food was amazing. Place has a great vibe and the sangria was great!
The food was amazing. The ambiance was amazing. And the staff couldn’t have been better. Thank you for a phenomenal dining experience! Irina is #1 and Chef Mike is the man!!!!!!
We were there to celebrate a birthday for the second year in a row (I put it in the reservation notes) and it was not acknowledged. Service was good as well as the food but nothing mind blowing. Ambiance is fun
What a sweet place my husband and I decided to try for date night. An eclectic high energy ambiance. Our server was sweet and attentive and the food (tapas fare) was very good and delicious. We had the Brussel sprout octopus and the shaved lamb crostini). All very good!! My fav was the Pulpo. We’d definitely go back with friends or I would highly recommend.
Such a good time! Cozy, great happy hour on wine and awesome place to share small plates with friends.
We are from Dallas and we eat at this restaurant ever time we visit NYC. The food is fantastic and the owner and wait staff couldn’t be nicer!
Amazing service , delicious food. Hailey provided great service !!
The outdoor seating paired with excellent and unique cocktails make Vino Tapa a summer favorite! Winter time it remains a favorite with various seating options, big windows, and a good wine list.
The menu has several items that span various ingredients to satisfy every palate and may tempt one to try some food that may be out of their routine dining habits. Vino Tapa is tapas after all!
The staff is attentive, knowledgable, and excited about their offerings, and consequently the service is the best, and an integral part of the Vino Tapa experience.
We came on a Monday night around 7:30 and it wasn’t busy but there were a couple of tables of 2 tops. The food took about 15 minutes to come out and we ordered a salad too. The food wasn’t good. The vinotapa salad had an avocado dressing that was too thick and I felt like the shaved manchego did not go well with it. Don’t get it. The pulpo was mushy and had no taste to it. The mac n cheese cauliflower was ok. The truffled salami flatbread and the steak were the best dishes.
Service was ok but no one ever came back to check to see how we were. They would just drop the food and go. The tables are EXTREMELY close to each other as well.
these are tapas with asian flair. i know a lot about spanish tapas, and this aint it. also service was terrible. i ordered 7 tapas with 1st being pas con tomate...that was the LAST one we received, the first being ribs...then the next 5 arrived at same time, then pan con tomates when all was done. we ordered our second drink when the ribs arrived (1st tapas) but only received AFTER pan con tomate. a bit ridiculous. we won't go back, and you shouldn't. the music was good. mid 80s to mid 90s hard rock.
Everything about my dinner was great! Tapas are well priced, service is friendly and ambiance was welcoming. Def going back!
Amazing food, just a bit too loud, hard to hear anyone. I wouldnt go with a party larger than 2.
I went to VinoTapa on NYE and it was wonderful! Since my reservation was for 10:30pm, the restaurant wasn't too crowded. Upon walking in I took notice of the cozy ambiance as well as the festive New Years decorations. The service was absolutely wonderful as was the food. The restaurant offered a $35 tasting deal per person which everyone I was with ordered. Small plate after small plate kept coming and every single tapas/small plate was incredible. Ten minutes to midnight the restaurant supplied each table with NYE party favors (crowns and party horns) and a free glass of champagne. My experience at VinoTapa was an excellent one & I will definitely be going back.
Delicious. Liked the vegetarian dishes even better than the meat ones!
I have been there many time and vino tapas always lives up to my expectationd
Great food and service. Would definitely recommend.
fun and casual place - great service and food. Overall a good experience - Vino Tapa is definitely on our "go back there again" list
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
My favorite place for brunch or dinner
Had the chef’s tasting menu. Very affordable and we got a lot of good food. Drinks were great!
Absolutely loved this place. The staff was kind and attentive; the owner greeted us at the door. Highly recommend the Sticky Ribs and the Ensalada Vinotapa!
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.
Absolutely Vino tapa is a must go to restaurant with amazing food a great service specially Hailey
Food was fantastic and their bloody Mary's were very good. The place was super cute and our server was awesome.
Awesome local place for Kips Bay. Great food. Drinks on point.
Return trip to VinoTapa 8p on an August Sat nite. As good as the first time - nice selection of tapas & wines. Inside, tho not filled was LOUD - enjoyed our time outside in front. Smiling, professional service, nice chat with owner Mike. Check it out !
The chef was more than accommodating for a gluten free member at my table. Beyond great service.
Amazing food! We ended up having a bigger party than expected. Everyone was so nice and helpful. Made my birthday a blast!
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
