Really authentic! Outstanding tapas selection. The cheeses, seafood, and sherries (though only a few of these on their menu) are highly recommended! Service good. Lovely atmosphere with heavy wood tables and bar, beautiful lanterns, dim lighting. I have missed tapas since moving away from a large metropolitan area. This was a wonderful evening with friends!

This has became one of our go-to neighborhood places. We love the ambience of it, although honestly, we've gotten no further than the front bar area. Have never eaten in the main dining room. We are there for the wine and tapas. The shrimp in green sauce, the potatas bravas, and the meatballs are a few of our favorites. Have... More

Celebrated my bf birthday Friday night at Pintxo Y Tapas. We were a party of six and requested the table close to the enclosed fireplace. Excellent spot because we were able to talk and not have to yell above the noise! We ordered a number of tapas from the chicken, calamari, asparagus, squid salad, cheese platter and sardines. Everything was... More

My wife and I decided to try something different before a concert at the Bergen PAC. We usually eat Italian or Japanese. We dined at Pintxo Y Tapas. The food was terrific, authentic and very fresh. We had clams in a spicy paprika broth, shrimps a la plancha in a green sauce, jamon Serrano with Manchego cheese and really fresh... More

I called to inquire about a party for up to 40 people. Person who answered the phone was incredibly unhelpful, and would only provide a menu by fax; claimed he did not have a scanner so was unable to email. The other option he provided was for me to come pick up a copy. When I asked if he was... More

Soup is wonderful. Tapas are amazing, we started off with the garlic shrimp, plantains and chicken. Sangria is wonderful and the fish for entree was great.

Good selection of tapas, the ones we tried were good and good sangria. Main dishes are good, but not the best we have eaten, portions are BIG. Tables too close together makes for constant hitting by servers and a little noisy, when busy, making private conversation difficult. It may be better when not so busy - dinner time between 6...

As good a tapas menu as you'll find this side of Barcelona. Excellent food, generous portions, reasonable prices, god service: what more could you ask for. Décor is a bit on the tacky side, but who cares. Action in the front of the house looked like a lot of fun. Back of the house was quiet. They start you of... More

My friend and I decided to order 4 tapas which came with the most amazing soup. Leo, the manager is a great help in helping you choose the right tapas and the right number. We sat for over 4 hours and had a wonderful time. Order the Sangria. It is fabulous !
