Nice spot, good food, reasonably priced

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... read 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........

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
