The best!

My most recent visit at Tapas 177 I sat on the first floor where the bar is and had the most amazing mojito. There isn't anywhere in the city that makes one as great as Tapas.

We used to go to Tapas 177 years ago. It had a creative menu if superb food. You felt like you were in a big city without big city prices. Every meal was outstanding there. Like many people we try other places and had not gone to Tapas for a few years. On Saturday we went to GEVA Theater to... More

Tapas has been in this location for years and we have always enjoyed the food. Note - it is not "Spanish" food, but has an international variety of items. We usually go during the week so have not had to deal with the large crowds and long waits that some others have described in their reviews. We usually order the... More

Only reservation was that... More

I have given this restaurant a 4 star because in the law of averages probably it deserves it, but certainly I was not as impressed as the average Tripadvisor community. Positives: good atmosphere, decent healthy food, great service. Negative this is not a tapas bar, more a Mediterranean restaurant, good is not Spanish, portions are too big to be tapas... More

Wide selection of tasty tapas style dishes. Gluten free menu was a nice touch. Well stocked bar with a decent wine list. It looked like there was a more formal dinning area downstairs.

Wife and I had date night there. Bar is always full and fun. Bartenders very attentive. Wife loved Tapas Spritz! Dinner was great. We split a bunch of small plates. Highlight was the Coconut Curry soup. Korean short ribs were wonderful. Rest of plates were very good. Service and atmosphere were very nice. Everyone there (including customers) were very happy...

Since I moved back to Rochester 15+ years ago, Tapas has been my #1 for date night or a night out with the girls. The music, the atmosphere and kind wait staff/bartenders make it what it is. The food is consistently prepared and I have my favorites (fried calamari salad is great; the chips and salsa at the bar are... More

I asked how much are shots were. The bartender responded $5.00. I replied "really? That seems like a lot." Next thing I know the owner/bartender Dimitrio told me I was too drunk to be served. I had three beers before I got there. He then told my brother in-law that he didn't want other people to hear me say anything.... More

I've always enjoyed the concept of tapas--try lots of little plates and make a meal of it. At Tapas 177, the food is very good and very flavorful, but the portion sizes are far, far larger than any other tapas restaurant I've visited (and I do tapas quite often!). Two plates each was more than enough to fill-up most of... More
