I had read good things about Txikito, so checked it out while in NYC on business. Staff were very friendly, but the food, while tasty, did not stand out in any way. I had razor clams, which were minuscule, albondigas, not bad, which came with bread, a nice artichoke appetizer, and the croquettes. A glass of Tempranillo is always good... More

Have visited twice. The first time before the Queen concert this past Summer.Hard to find delicious food near MSG so of course hit Trip Advisor and found this gem. When I first saw menu and saw kroketas I figured my kids would be fine with tons of those for dinner if nothing else appealed to them. Well we ate more... More

The server gave us wonderful advice on what to sample. I thought the tongue was exceptional. Two others at the table really liked the tripe. For those who are not adventurous eaters, fear not, you will have wonderful food.

Loved their sister restaurant in Brooklyn (La Vara), so tried this Manhattan site. Very pleasant downscale decor, not noisy. nice service. Small and medium-sized plates all with outstanding flavor. Limited liquor (gin, vodka, rum); great wines. $178 for 2 people with drinks and good tip.

Pintxos, tapas, small plates....whatever you want to call it, it does not matter. This is a great restaurant. Firmly rooted in Basque style cooking this little gem transported me to San Sebastián. The croquetas were crisp and creamy, the chorizo, bold and authentic. I ate a lovely dish of calamari with crushed piñon and lemon.....miraculous! The crispy morcilla ( blood... More

Txikito was recommended to us by the owner of the excellent tapas restaurant Elephant in Kingston, NY. Wow, was she spot on! Everything we tried was super fresh and expertly prepared. Our server was very knowledgeable about the food and steered us toward some dishes we might not have otherwise tried. They had quite a few Basque classics, but the... More

Small bites of food is my favorite way of eating, so this place was perfect for me. It was obvious the chefs chose the freshest ingredients.

We were a table of 4 that ordered almost everything on the menu. All of the food was great, but the sangria, lamb, gnocchi and the chocolate flan were the table favorites. Great service and atmosphere. Loud, but you could hear your table with no problem. I would definitely return.

This is more than the typical "tapas bar" this is fine cuisine, creative, delicious, fairly priced and beautiful.

We had a very good time at this restaurant. While the plates are small, and not cheap, the quality and originality of the dishes was quite good, and the presentation decent. Some dishes were clearly better than others, but the overall impression was quite pleasant. Service was fine.
