Good tapas

Very pleasant tapas bar in downtown historic Bethlehem. Lucky to have been accommodated on Friday night of Lehigh family weekend with no reservation (not advised). Very happy with all of our tapas selections and will be back!

Staff was very unaccomodating. They did not cater to our needs. Food was fair. One of their appetizers was filet and when it came to the table it was skirt steak.

Great menu, all around. We've been for lunch, brunch, and dinner. They have great options for all meals. It's fun to come with a group and share plates. I love the humus and mussels. Their veggie burger for lunch is probably the best veggie burger I've ever had! If you're there for cocktails, you should definitely try their sangria. They... More

Went for drinks and appetizers Saturday night....sat at a table that was very rocky and shaky! Had sangria, but found out later of a trio sampler that would have been nice to know about sooner, especially when we asked the waitress several questions about the different flavored sangria. We didn't know what flavor would be best, I would have purchased... More

We used to go here regularly for business meetings, but some colleagues were treated with a good deal of disrespect by the staff. So, we haven't held anymore meetings here. The food is generally good and priced consistent with what you should expect for tapas. The atmosphere is nice. The service is inconsistent and sometimes terrible.

We were here in November with a time constraint which we mentioned to our server. Restaurant is small and when we arrived it wasn't busy at all, so we didn't think our request was unreasonable, and the server agreed. Menu has a decent variety of small plates (tapas). We had the Atun al Sarten (yellowfin tuna) over fingerling potatoes, saffron... More

This place rocks on weekends and is one of two establishments (the other is French) interconnected inside with different menu's and drinks. We had their Crips Ravioli special which I found just passable. However, the other special we tried " Jamon Serrano with goat cheese and strawberry jam was exceptional!!! We ate at the bar during happy hour so drinks... More

At first this place didn't seem big but they have several tables in a next room. The high tables close to the bar are good enough for a cozy encounter. Food is great so definitely a place to return too.

Christmas weekend we walked off the street into Tapas on Main it was prime time Saturday night and the only table available was with high bar stool type seating. The hostess did say we were welcome to have a table in their sister restaurant which was French. We agreed and were escorted through the dinning room into the French section... More
