Tapas / Small Plates
VinoTapa is a Spanish bar & tapas restaurant. Your neighborhood spot - great for dates, girls' night out or come alone and make new friends. We have the best happy hour in Murray Hill, with sangria, wine, beer, and cocktails on special daily until 8 PM! Come by to try our inventive signature cocktails and extensive line-up of craft beer and carefully chosen wine selections. Our tapas are delicious and unique, with executive chef Mike Vassallo incorporating seasonal produce and ingredients throughout the menu, year-round. For parties of three or more, ask about our tapas tasting menu - we consider it the best way to experience the restaurant. Brunch is offered on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 AM to 4 PM with an optional $20 Bottomless add-on. Whoever said that they don't "do" brunch in Spain, has never been to VinoTapa.

Please note that we only seat complete parties. We can't wait to see you!

I really had high hopes for this restaurant, My husband and I were looking for a Tapas place in the city that had outdoor seating. They had a large outdoor space that was not heated. We ordered wine which was good, and ordered a few of the tapas and after we ordered them she came out with the food in maybe 4 mins like it was pre paired already . The Patatas Bravas was cold and soggy, the chorizo tasted so smoky and chewy and the Pan Con Tomate was large chunks of tomato on slices of bread nothing to brag about and the deviled eggs were flavorless , we just got the check and left after chugging our wine. Maybe they had an off day but this was Saturday night and the restaurant wasn't that busy to be pushing out cold and bad stuff.

The wines were average and the food was terrible + their oven was down. We have VERY salty deviled eggs, raw flour tasting potato croquettes, and under cooked chicken skewers. The blue cheese dates were acceptable but not great. We were very disappointed overall.

This is a no frills tapas bar in Murray Hill with both indoor and outdoor seating. The crowd is young and fun, the prices affordable, and the food outstanding.

We especially loved the croquettes, garlic shrimp and fried calamari, but everything was authentic and delicious.

The service was friendly and attentive, atmosphere lively, and the bill was a happy surprise - $300 for 6 of us, including wine.

First time here, and will definitely come back!! We bought ~9 tapas for 4 people and it was plenty of food. Not overly priced and a huge variety of drinks. Love that this place has happy hour! The only drawback was this place was pretty loud even only at half-full. They also sat us at a table very close to another party even though there was room to sit at another table (it was reserved and they never showed). Can’t wait to try the brunch.

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.

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.

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.
