Quick service and good food!

We were in Boston on a Tuesday night, this place was packed! Delicious tapas, fresh food and quick service. The Spanish omelette was disappointing, compared to Spain, but the rest of our dishes, patatas bravas, meatballs, chicken, short rib were delicious!

Had a great experience here with a group of adults and teens. All the tapas were very enjoyable. The chick pea spread that came with the bread was also devoured. I would skip the paella and focus on the small dishes. It takes a while to prepare and by the time if comes you are full and it's just not... More

It was delightful to sit on the patio (weather permitting). Wouldn't care to be inside. The food was mixed. The calamari was too fried and overly salty. The baby lamb chops were OK. The lobster ravioli was very good.

Tapeo has a nice outdoor and indoor section, and is in a lovely part of town on Newbury Street. But at least on the night I was there, it was lacking in a few areas, mostly service. The food was good, not great, but when we sat down no one came over to offer us drinks for probably 6-7 minutes.... More

first good value dinner after 10 days in Massachusetts, great outside sitting, the tapas are good, reasonably priced and good portions to share. The patatas bravas had a good aioli dressing, good salmon, good lobster ravioli, service was quick and discreet. Very nice mocktails, specially the lime/Basil one. Very nice place on Newbury street for a light and varied dinner.... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Tapeo and really enjoyed the Tapas. The were wonderfully prepared and reasonably priced. The spare rib tapas were delicious and they have daily specials and $5 tapas at the bar. The service was excellent and the food was delivered quickly.

Great dinner with my daughter and her friends while at college orientation. Great non alcoholic pitchers of drinks in interesting flavors like basil lime that the girls loved. Definitely get the fried goat cheese with honey!

Great Tapas in Boston's Newbury street. We ate outside and watched the Boston world by, thoroughly enjoyed the great selection of dishes. Very 'measured' Gin and Tonics, but staff very good, and would recommend , we;; worth a visit.
