A limited, but unique menu. Beautifully restored old building in Rochester. Very friendly staff, loved Steven the bartender! Would definitely recommend and will go back again.

Tapas 177 focuses on Spanish tapas and does them very well. They also have a variety of other entree's. We had the shrimp penne as well as 3 different tapas and all were excellent. Makes me want to go back to Spain! Not a fancy place but the service is good and the prices are reasonable.

Tapas had such a fun and inviting atmosphere. I had a Sangria that was so delicious and very authentic. Next time we go we want to stay for the free salsa lesson they offer, it looked like fun.

Great food and wine choices in the basement. Great service with knowledge on pairings and possibilities. I can't seem to get out of the place though without stopping upstairs at the bar for one more drink. There isn't anything on the menu you should try at least once. A unique place in downtown.

My husband and I just went to Tapas 177 to celebrate our anniversary. We ordered drinks (excellent!) and a few things to share which were all good. We loved the variety of items you could order and had some egg rolls, Italian meatballs, and epanadas (my favorite out of what we ordered). We followed this with a caprese salad which... More

Went with 7 friends for drinks, tapas and dinner. Bartender was very good, attentive and made excellent drinks. Then on to dinner. Server was not attentive or seemed happy to be there. Kind of sad when they tell you upfront that 20% gratuity will be added to bill for party of 6 or more. Appetizers were very good, calamari, artichokes... More

I love this place! I went with friends because it is close to the arena, where we were going to a show. The food was so great, I returned with my husband. This time there was also live music and the food was just as wonderful. It's really different and prepared in a tasty and attractive way. My favorite is... More

So disappointing. We go here rather often for happy hour drinks / bar tapas, but tonight, we'd decided to do that + a full sit-down dinner. Had to stand at the host stand for 10 minutes waiting to be seated, even though they were not on a wait (the host kept running up and down the stairs, then addressed the... More

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.
