I'm Spanish, & we love tapas, little dishes to share wIth one another & enjoy conversation whilst sharing dishes. It's seemed like when the main entree comes out, that everyone is focused on their dish, lost contact w/their guests, @ Black Trumpet, you can avoid that & continue to engage, enjoy & order more food to share, enjoy & have...

Wanted to try someplace new in the area. Found Black Trumpet on a search. Got there on a Friday night about 7- since rather small venue had to wait about 30-40 mins, but WELL worth the wait. Got seated at the "bar" where you can watch them prepare your food. Everything appears to be freshly made and the waitresses are... More

Choose from 28 Tappas (and don;t forget the Greek Burger on the other side of the menu). We keep trying different items. Yes some are better than others; some are good; some are great. This is the only Tappas place in Orange County that is open for lunch. And the service at lunch is outstanding.

A quaint small bistro serving Mediterranean food and tapas. Seating is very tight. Service is okay but slow. Tapas menu is good. Great variety. Only serves beers and wines for alcoholic drinks. Food is very good. No reservations accepted! !! And closes early in the evenings.

After driving by The Black Trumpet hundreds of times I finally decided to try it out. It is now my favorite restaurant in Huntington Beach and possibly all of Southern California. Excellent food, excellent service, cool atmosphere, fair prices. The only slight drawback is that they do not take reservations and so plan to wait, but there is a nice... More

Heard lot of good things about this restaurant, so we gave it a try. Go early, because this small place fills up fast! The lamb shank with the fig sauce was out of this world! The small plate of beef wellington was so yummy too. Located in a very unassuming strip mall. Can't wait to return!

What a cool restaurant! It's a bit on the small side but, that also translates to intimate. I love the intimacy versus feeling like you're sitting in a huge room with tons of people around. And the serve staff.....they're awesome!! They're friendly, accomodating, and just the best. The restaurant has a variety of tapas style menu items and 3 specials... More

Small, you will be seated at close proximity to others.Can get loud but never bothers me. Looks like the best seats would be at the bar area that places you viewing the chefs as they prepare food. I have yet to sit here as they are always taken. The food is very good (check out their menu online) keep in... More

This is one of those "rare find" restaurants. Great food, great atmosphere, great service what more could you want, and very reasonably priced. The Black Trumpet is one of our favorite "go to" restaurants in Huntington Beach, The Tapas is the best we've found in Orange County and keeps us coming back for more. Kudos to the owner and staff,

HB has a drought on small interesting eats...So to find Black Trumpet is exciting. Small plates, tasty, fun vibe, fresh atmosphere, friendly staff, respectable wine list, and clean! Because it is intimate, it is a bit noisy...can't have every thing.
