Great atmosphere, great food. Calamari is excellent! Perfect tapas that arent too small. They even have Tango/Salsa dancing downstairs sometimes; lessons and freestyle. Cool bar and also have a few wine barrels as tables.

A few friends went to Tapas 177, and were blown away by the food options and service! It does not look like much from the outside (a little dark in the evening to find), but once you enter in the basement of an old brick building, you feel like youre in a different city! We had many different tapas, and... More

Went to ROCHESTER to visit a friend last night and we couldn't decide where to eat until we read the great reviews of this place! It's hard to find as there is only a little sign indicating it's the restaurant. When you walk in it's like you are in the basement of an old brick house. Absolutely stunning candlelight dinner....

Whether it's your first date or your twentieth anniversary celebration Tapas never fails to impress. They have an intimate bar area that is well versed in the art of mixology. When it's time for dinner the downstairs dining room is warm and inviting "ask for the alcove table for a truly private dinner" the menu is always tasty and not... More

From the great wine and martini selections it is a very special place for us to go. They have a new menu but saved some of the old favorites too, especially their famous calamari salad. Open every night and keeps putting out great food and service which says a lot about why they are there and successful for so many... More

If you love tasteless food, small portions, and high prices... RUSH IMMEDIATELY to Tapas! The food looked good but they forgot to add flavor! The menu has no pictures so beware of small portion sizes! The calamari was fried well but no seasoning! The empanadas were smaller than dumplings and costs the same as a gourmet burger in Red Robin!... More

From dingy bar to hip little restaurant. This is a MUST try, especially for a date night. The downstairs dining had a romantic feel and if the weather is nice, you can even eat on a little patio that is straight out of Europe! If you're looking for recommendations on food: calamari for the win!!
