We were looking for something different in the Greater Rochester area and decided on Tapas 177 after reading their menu on the inter-tube thingy. In spite of the cold rain falling the bar was hopping and it seemed to have a pretty vibrant and young clientele, but we were there for dinner and dinner is served in the lower level.... More

I was staying at the Rochester Plaza hotel and after one look at the hotel restaurant I decided to look elsewhere for dining opportunities. The woman at security was kind enough to recommend this place and it was only 0.3 mile from the hotel. On arriving this establishment has a comfortable and inviting ambiance. The bar is situated on the... More

Tapas was an unexpected little gem. The food was very good and so was the wine selection. They boast "Best martini" however I don't know if I would agree. I had the spicy dirty martini... it was SMALL.. not spicy, not strong and overall tasted watered down. My friend had the chocolate martini which came with a rolo in the... More

Great location anyone living or staying in the city. Even found convenient parking on a weekday night. Bar on street level; dining on lower level but you can enter TAPAS 177 from the lower level where there is a ramp for those with mobility issues. We dined on 6 different appetizers which were all delicious and unique. Have to admit... More

I was attending a conference in the Rochester area and asked the concierge at the hotel where a good place for a little nosh would be. She suggested Tapas 177, just down the road. My colleagues and I walked the few blocks and entered what appeared to be a typical bar but without many tables. We told the fellow at... More

Had some rice paper veggie wraps and chicken dumplings. Average. A bit pricey for what was served. Apparently an Americanized tapas like restaurant. The feel and atmosphere of the place really sells it. Would be amazing for a date. If you can find something off the menu. Not your standard fair. Might return.

Sunday nights over the past 2 summers, my boyfriend and I find ourselves eating delicious appetizers and sipping on perfectly shaken martinis. Since we are both in the restaurant business, we never get to experience Friday and Saturday nights out - but a Sunday night at Tapas always feels like the nights we miss out on! Elissa is the best... More

Spent the weekend in Rochester with some friends and we were looking for a new place with music. We found Tapas 177 and what a delight. Old store front type building with the main eating, bar and music area downstairs, OK this could be interesting. We sat in a cozy outside area where a 3 piece jazz combo was playing.... More

After a long day at the office a small group of us (7) went and was promptly seated on the backyard patio. Excellent service and a great small plates selection.
