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.

I thought I didn't like Tapas because I have tried it all over the country and even in Spain. I wasn't expecting such great and tasty small plates in the middle of Boston. Try the fried Goat Cheese in honey. If you like lamb the baby lamb chops are delicious. We shared a pitcher of Sangria and it was worth... More

Had a wonderful dinner at Tapeo with excellent drinks and great service. The good was delicious and the portions very appropriate. Price was very reasonable. Waiter did not know the wines particularly well but other than that an excellent choice. Will go back.

If you're going down Newbury Street in Boston, this is one you don't want to miss. They have a great selection of dishes. We had several dishes including salmon, shrimp, pasta, fried goat cheese, empanadas, and prunes stuffed with goat cheese wrapped in bacon. All were absolutely outstanding.

We arrived, sans reservation, and was seated on the outside patio (small, but great for people watching). We were seated immediately yet service was slow to get to us (maybe it was crowded inside but outside was almost empty). Once our orders were placed, however, the food arrived quickly. Each dish was nicely presented and tasty....not wonderful but very good.... More
