We traveled from Philadelphia to see a show at the nearby casino. Tapas on Main was recommended by someone from the area. From the moment we walked in there was a great atmosphere. Our waiter was super friendly and very helpful, we ordered five tapas which we shared between four. Portions were good for tapas, great menu, many choices.

This is our forth time eating here. We come to Bethlehem for business once a year. It was a warm April afternoon ,cocktail time so we stopped at the tables outside to have a famous sangria. Tapas offers at least 5 different and yummy tasting ones. The best and fun to sip while people watching the lively street. This is... More

We met a group here for drinks and appetizers. They were very attentive to details. The reservations were made several weeks in advance and the restaurant called me to verify the reservation and inquire as to any special needs the week before. The night of our visit, they called to let me know the table was ready for us. There... More

Stopped in for drinks and light snack. The bartender (Joe) was great! This was my first visit and it was a quick stop but I will definitely revisit. The sangria was tasty and the cerveza y queso dip with toasted pitas was awesome! Can't wait to go back.

We were recently in Bethlehem visiting local colleges and ventured to the downtown area. We had been recommended to Tapas and decided to give it a try. It was wonderful! A family of four, we tried many things on the menu and loved them all. We had a flatbread, steak tips brochettes, special hummus and chorizo, salmon on bruschetta and... More

Five of us had dinner here before seeing a show. We were under a time constraint and so didn't spend as much time grazing, as we would have liked. We shared all of our plates beginning with Ensalada de Remolacha (salad with beets and goat cheese). Then on to Paella Palomino (seafood), Costillas de Cordero ( baby lamb chops) and... More

I lived in NYC for a few years and dined out many many times at some of the best restaurants. I was a bit reserved to come to this place when it opened in the LV because nothing has came close to the food experiences I've had in NYC. After a few good friends suggesting this place, I finally gave... More

Sat at the bar with a friend twice now...not sure what kind of place this is supposed to be. The menu seems like a sophisticated style of menu, yet the quality is lacking. Fine dining style of service, yet they are known for their sangria's, which are steered towards college-styled drinks. A little expensive, with extremely un-attentive service. Lots of... More

This BYO is the joint effort of two brother-in-laws already successful in the Bethlehem restaurant scene. The space consists of a pizza shop by the pie or slice and a large separate sit down space with earth tone walls and dark wooden floors and furniture. Art work and votives on the tables could really make this space more appealing to... More

While very few restaurant in the US can compete with what you can get in Barcelona, Tapas on Main makes a valiant effort. The food is always good, and the servers are always friendly. I absolutely adore their dates stuffed with Valdeon cheese and wrapped in bacon. One of the best versions I've tried. My husband is a fan of... More
