My husband and myself consider ourselves foodies. We enjoy food all over the US. I can name top restaurants all over the place. I was a full supporter of tapas in Bozeman. We went there one day in December. It was a Tuesday. They used to be closed on Mondays. So I expected freshness. I actually was sick from the... More

My dad and I both love this place! The food came out promptly, everything that was served was attractively placed and designed on the plate and hot/warm. I had the shrimp scallop grits which were great! Along with the crab caked and sourdough suck crepes. I love this restaurant! The service was excellent also. Wonderful atmosphere!

Excellent food and service. We eat lunch at Tapas at least once a week. Daily specials are often very unique and filling.

We looked forward to visiting this restaurant as often as possible when in Bozeman. Well, not any more. We ate there this week and found quality of food had gone down, down, down. The potato small plate was barely warm, the sauce on the chicken had very little flavor and the fish tasted old. In fact the person who had... More

A good cold brew after a day in the saddle (motorcycle that is) and interesting food combinations we would never have dreamed up made for a fun and relaxing dinner. It is better if you have 3 or 4 people so that you can sample more of their creative dishes. This is not a wolf it down, all you can... More

Was excited about trying this restaurant while in town. Fire Roasted Tomato Bisque - was average, the name implied more than was delivered. Prosciutto Croquettes - prosciutto implies strong flavor, so do the words gruyere and manchego; but there wasn't any. We couldn't taste prosciutto at all and the total was bland. Crab cakes - crab content was good, but... More

Thank you for sharing your opinion. The paella and the crab cakes are actually two of our best selling items and rarely do we hear that our food is under-seasoned. However, we value your business, thanks for coming in! More

The tapas and wine selection is awesome. Service friendly and excellent. Art on the walls (done by waitress) is a good enough reason to stop in. All in all a "must visit" in this quaint college town.

We tried Over the Tapas on an early Saturday evening after a day at Museum of the Rockies. While our small dishes (patatas bravas, chorizo-stuffed mushrooms, chicken skewers, lamb sliders, and two different salads) were flavorful and appealing and the available brews were good, the tiny restaurant quickly became crowded. Servers -- in little black dresses in sync with the... More

The food was good but not up to the standards set by other tapas places we've eaten. The patatas bravas, for example, were drizzled with sauce rather than serving it on the side, and they didn't have the paprika flavor you'd expect. It was also a little noisy. That said, it was a pleasant enough dinner and we'd probably go... More
