Si!

Cozy spot with delicious tapas. The garlic shrimp was perfectly cooked and buttery. Mushrooms were woody and rich. Spinach salad with chicken has a nice spicy sauce. Crab coquettes were good but the least interesting dish on the table. And a nice selection of cheeses. Worth a visit.

This is the fourth time we have been here. We travel from NJ to dine here and get a hotel so we can enjoy the food and drink. We came here for the first time about two years ago and really enjoyed the sangria and food, but this time, was one of the most disappointing dining experiences we have ever... More

This was the 2nd time we went here and both times we had issues. This time it was embarrassing since we took out of area friends with and we were celebrating birthdays that they forgot all about. We are going to try one more time if bad again it will be out last.

Have always had a pleasant dinning experience @ Tapas. The wait staff has to be the smartest group for menu knowledge, food background and care of their diners. Surprised when a waitress brought me a tasty bread to pair with one of my meals. It wasn't part of the dinner, but she thought I might enjoy it, at no extra... More

I went with a friend during restaurant week and had a great 3-course meal. Portions were just right and the service was excellent as well. Would recommend.

Tapas is great for drinks and catching up with friends. I really enjoy all the tapas that they offer, from the cheese and meats to the olives, etc. I have had a larger dinner here, the paella, but I was not as impressed as I am with the tapas. Definitely worth going to, but more for a light bite to... More

We ate at the new crepe place., cachet the. The Waitress was new but did an excellent job. Very pleasant and efficient. The wine list was mall but our selection was fine. We ordered the frites as an appetizer. The aioli sauce was nice but the fries were not as good as Tappas fries. I ordered the arugula salad and... More

We often come here to see Craig Thatcher or other acts, like Billy Bauer. It's a little tight in the front of the bar area with the tall tables and all, but it is a great place to hear live music. The food is great too. We usually order a series of tapas and the wait staff doesn't mind if... More

My husband and I stopped in one day during happy hour and I was pleasantly surprised with the Sangria menu and specials! We were having dinner elsewhere so we didn't have any of the food. If you like good drink specials, especially Sangria, this is somewhere to check out. Also, a lot of nice outdoor seating!
