Simple, homey, relaxing. But, do not miss the lamb meatballs. The special drink list is good too. The bar is homey, but the room in the back will be quieter. We usually go in a group of 4 and split a few tapas between us. but, get your own meatballs!!

Couldn't have had a better meal, view (we had a window seat and watched the Santa Bar Crawlers jogging down the street - it was a hoot!) and fantastic attentive staff. Would highly recommend! Nice varied menu - good prices........

Can't beat happy hour pricing for a pitcher of great Sangria! Blood orange is our favorite. I also love the white bean stew. Great bar to stop in for a break while shopping on main street.

Been there a few times and the wait staff and service has been great. All the dishes ordered were great but some had seriously small portions for the share plates. It really depended on what the item was, like we had a shrimp dish with 4 very small shrimp in it, hardly worth it. But on the flip side other... More

This place had a great atmosphere and great service! Food was good, also reasonably price and we were well taken care of- the salads were delicious and large enough to share! We requested a dessert for my moms birthday, and our server brought someone out from the kitchen to sign a BEAUTIFUL Spanish song to her- it was perfect!

I have been to Tapas on Main a few times and each time I am pleasantly surprised by the specials and menu offerings. Their sangria listing is extensive and seasonal so there is always something new to discover. I enjoy meeting with friends for drinks and shareable plates which always makes for a unique and comfortable dining experience. I highly... More

We went on a Thursday evening, When they have discounted Sangria.($20 for a pitcher instead of $28 and $5 glass instead of $8) We ordered blood orange Sangria. If you like sweet drinks, you will like it. Out of the Tapas selections we liked the olives and the Salmon tartare. Those who ate lamb meat balls said they were too... More

Wow! I perchanced upon this place on a recent business trip. It was a Saturday night, and I couldn't believe my luck at getting a seat at the bar. The bartender Joe was so welcoming and friendly, it was almost as if I were in a bar/restaurant in my hometown. The sangria was really sickningly sweet, and really the worst... More

I was so excited to have tapas... It's been a while... And I was not disappointed. We went for a late lunch. Variety of food, all good. We especially enjoyed the sampler and mushroom dish. Our server was great at explaining the choices and friendly (we did not meet one unfriendly person during our stay, come to think of it!)... More

Everything I've had here is entirely satisfying. Sangria options are on point and the coursing of the small plates always keeps the experience exciting. The bacon wrapped dates are scrumptious---perfectly sweet and a little savory. Spinach & artichoke dip is incredibly tangy and delightfully garlicky. Recommend getting extra pita bread, too! Eggplant and goat cheese dish was cooked perfectly and... More
