Tapas 177 is an amazing place. The food is fantastic and the drinks are to die for. There is so many different options every time I have been there I have got different things. They were having salsa lessons last time we were there and it looked like so much fun, definitely something to try out sometime.

Visited this restaurant on a busy Friday night--to be honest, I think they are one of the only good restaurants open after business hours in this neighborhood. We showed up without a reservation; however, a party of 6 who had made a reservation didn't show. Lucky for us or it would have been >1 hour wait. Restaurant is cute--very bistro... More

I have been coming for the last 12 years and the place still rocks. The ambience downstairs and the back patio area is great. The tapas are excellent and eclectic. We had the Game Sausage combo,(Elk,Deer,Wild Boar), Scallops, Chicken,etc. The wine selection limited but ok.. The costs of wine was very good for a bottle...A must try when in Rochester.

I rated this 4 stars because two of us were thrilled with our meal and the other two which had the same thing (boar) weren't. They felt it flavorful but tough. One person has the fresh gnocchi and said it was delicious and I had the ahi tuna entree and it was wonderful. We started by sharing the calamari which... More

We went with a friend for an early dinner after a show at the GEVA theater after reading some reviews on TA. The menu was very creative and our server very attentive. As my wife and I are light eaters tapas is perfect for us. An extra benefit is it's reasonably priced particularly given the quality. The desert menu is... More

I have dined here on a few occasions. The food and service area great. I am vegetarian and there is always something on the menu for me. I have to admit the last time I was in was over a year ago because although the food is delicious! the menu dose not change much. The Atmosphere is lounge like and... More

Very different menu. I liked that they had options for adding stuff to appetizers turning them into main courses. Interesting food combinations making everything very delicious. Definitely recommend!

We were checking out neighborhood restaurant and decided to try this. Its exterior is modest but the inside is very nice. They had a large assortment of tapas as well as large dishes. We had a calamari dish and a scallop dish. Well prepared and well presented. The sangria was ok. Not fabulous....just not worth returning for. We split a... More

It had been sometime since our last visit - a few years. It was happy hour with a jazz trio playing downstairs, which is where we were seated. This made for a nice vibe in the restaurant even though just a few tables were occupied. Tapas has a dark and unique decor which is a nice contrast to most places... More
