Tapas on Main used to be one of my favorites! My friends and I made it a must whenever we visited the Lehigh Valley. So, we went again in early January, and sadly, were were less impressed. We noticed this past summer, and the downward spiral seems to continue. Everything just seems too spicy or too bland. I used to... More

Bethlehem is blessed with many fine restaurants, offering fabulous Italian, great sushi, yummy Syrian & even California cuisine. What it was missing was a tapas bar of its very own. With Tapas on Main, that void has been filled. Tapas are small plates filled with shrimp, scallops or bacon wrapped dates among others ingredients. It's so hard to decide among... More

We consider ourselves Tapas cognoscenti, having tapas'd through Spain. We went to this venue with family (daughter, son-in-law and grandson) on Christmas Eve, one of the few places open in Belthelem (except for the inn, of course) and were impressed with it. While it was not like Spain in the breadth of selections, it was still a wide enough selection... More

We made reservations to visit thisTapas restaurant for lunch. It was a late afternoon on a Sunday. It was pretty busy for that time of day, so we were excited. The squash & carrot soup was delicious! Creamy without tons of dairy cream, very flavorful and was served with a sprinkling of pistachios on top that added texture and one... More

Went here for the first time when there was a band and it was so crowded. The food and drinks we got were great. We look forward to giving this place another try when not so crazy busy.

We went to this restaurant because our first choice had a long wait. I am SO GLAD. This place was really outstanding. We had multiple tapas dishes. But, the stars were the chicken paella and seafood paella. Absolutely delicious. Will definitely return!

Visited friends in the area for holiday season. Bethlehem is nice town with great holiday decor. Tapas is well located in near historic buildings. We went in just for appetizers and some drinks. Had the cheesy artichoke dip and fries (Papas a la Francesca) which were both very good. Had beer/cheese dip something or other which was average. The inside... More

Went there to have some dinner with some foodie friends. The sangria was awesome and so was the truffle oil fries. The lamb meatballs we ok, not worth the hype on some other posts. Worth stopping by to check out.

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........
