A feast for the eyes as well as the soul, Tapeo on Newbury Street is a delicious change-of-pace from the everyday. If you love Tapas (small plates) and enjoy sharing your meal, this is the place for you. With an eclectic menu, ranging from pork and chicken to steak and seafood, and beyond, Tapeo will not disappoint. Plus, the sangria... More

had a nice dinner planned with my daughter...it was fine. just fine. The food - we had ceviche, paella, and a few tapas. They were not the best we'd had, nor the worst - it was average. I would go there again if folks wanted to try it. I am not sure I would seek it out. The service was... More

Really good food and wine! The lemon pasta was a standout. We sat on the patio, good for people watching.

Had different tapas during our visit and they were great. Service was excellent and friendly. Nice ambiance. We had dinner inside, they have outside tables but due to the nice weather it was very crowded outside and the tables are pretty tight to eachother, which was not the case inside.

We had a group of four with one strict GF diner, and no problem finding enough variety for the group and meeting GF needs (including GF-dishes that didn't involve meat). Gambas al ajillo, patatas bravas, gorditas, costillitas, alcachofas, and a few others: all very good. I rarely get sangria, but Tapeo's was very good: not too sweet (fairly dry, actually),... More

This is a good palcase to share with frineds and to sit in the patio in a summer night. The food is good, very nicely prepared (Iknow Spanish food, I have been to Spain). The wine list is extnesive and the prices are reasonable. You can eat a little or a lot, that is the beauty of tapas.

Great spot to sit outside and people watch when the weather is nice. Most of the menu items are small plates, order several at a time, sample and share. Everything I have tried here has been very good but I can especially recommend the garlic shrimp, the potatoes and the short rib. The sangria is quite good too.

What an awful night!! We specifically made 6PM reservations and asked for outdoor seating. We had 8PM show and wanted to allow enough time. When we arrived at the restaurant (on time) we were told there was a 20 minute wait for outdoors or we could be seated right away inside. We decided to wait the 20 minutes to eat... More
