Wonderful Place

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

Let me first say in all the times that I have been here, I have never been in the dining room, I have always sat at the bar... and it's great! Perfect place for a cocktails & a few delicious bites. The bartenders are always friendly & attentive even when it's busier. The mussel's are hands-down my favorite thing on... More

We booked well in advance for a February 14th dinner reservation. It appeared they weren't ready for the rush of people. We waited 25 minutes to be seated - they kept blaming the bad weather, and although it was very cold, there wasn't a snow storm (we've seen a lot worse). The service was prompt, and friendly, but the meals... More

Parking After 6 is free in front of the restaurant. Greeted in the phone by a very friendly staff. Really pleasant and helpful giving me directions. Sat at the bar and was hosted by one of the owners. Great story behind this place. Wonderful space decoration and music. Tapas fusion. Latin Greek Mediterranean Indian etc. Loved the calamari salad.

We stopped at Tapas 177 late night for food and drinks. The food was great. The menu had all types of food from oriental, Mediterranean, and South American. The drinks were also great with good atmosphere.

Tapas is one of my favorite Restaurants in our area. The wine and drink list is outstanding and the menu always creative. A couple of my favorite items are the Tuna Tartar and the Mussels. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere rustic with great background music. Advise is always on hand as to which wine might be a... More

On a trek across New York State, we stopped in Rochester for the night. Tapas 177 sounded good and we gave it a try. Several small plates later, we left happy and satisfied. The marinated olives were outstanding. Chicken empanadas, Bulgogi Crisp, Sher Ping Pancakes, and Mac and Cheese with bacon and shrimp were really delicious. All chased with a... More
