Socarrat Paella Bar - Midtown East
Socarrat, the quintessence of the perfect paella and for which the restaurant is named, is the delectable, sensuous crust that forms on the bottom of the paella pan when the liquid is rendered and the rice reaches its peak of succulence. The menu, an authentic array of delicious dishes from the regions of Spain specializing in traditional tapas with an accent on paella and fideua (which substitutes fried noodles for rice) that can be characterized as a true exploration for the palette.
Our Midtown location, the most recent addition to the Socarrat family, displays a lively atmosphere that is perfect for small and big groups alike. Book your next party in our private dining room!

Restaurant week lunch was a bargain. Wonderful sizzling shrimp and grilled mushroom appetizers, great Paella Socarrat, and very good desserts. Excellent, friendly service as well. Wish they'd open one on the Upper West Side.
Delicious Paella, our reason for choosing this restaurant.
We went for lunch in the restaurant week for the first time and the food was amazing!
The portion of the food is very good and it has amazing taste! Their paella is the best!
Good food and service. The drinks and paella was great. They should make clearer that they are not honoring restaurant week on saturdays.
Great choice for Restaurant Week! Portions are just right for someone with a normal-sized appetite.
The food was delicious and the staffs are pleasant & professional. We’ll definitely be back!
The drinks were great, the 4 dishes we ordered were all subpar. Minimal flavor. We have had much better Spanish dishes. Very disappointed
Authentic Spanish restaurant who took careful considerations of food allergies. Definitely will be retuning!
The Brunch was delicious and complete. It was reasonably priced
paella was delicious, albeit slightly more charred than preferrable. excellent flan and churro. The Tapas are outstanding. There was a dance party going on though, was a bit distracting.
Food was good but not amazing (and kind of on the pricey side). Don't come here if you have a shellfish allergy ;) I would say 75% of the items on the menu are shellfish-based (or cooked alongside shellfish).
Absolutely fabulous tapas—would return for sure!!
Enjoyable, great service, many tapas choices including specials not on the menu. Would be nice if paella was available as single serving
The food is just awesome!! We've been in many Spanish restaurants and this place was great!
Authentic Spanish tapa place, a bit pricey though, but good food nevertheless
Very nice lunch with a dear friend.
The service and our server Juan A. were excellent.
The food was delicious but could have been hotter.
Angie and all were awesome. The food was varied and delicious. A great dining experience at a very well managed restaurant.
Excellent black paella and Spanish wine!!!Good service!
Good service and paella Vallenciana, although the chicken in it was a little dry. Very crowded but not overly noisy.
Good and service were good .. I would prefer seating in the first floor .. Fid not like being in the second floor and towards the back !!!

We got there before 6 for happy hour and half price tapas - an excellent value!!
Awesome place with awesome atmosphere
Celebration of my Spanish nationality 🇪🇸
Wonderful tapas and great service. We also didn’t get chased away from our table when our reservation time was over.
Si te gusta la paella … no la pidas … un auténtico desastre… no tengo calificativos suficientes para explicar semejante plato que pretenden llamar paella de marisco.
Por otro lado, patatas bravas correctas … y pulpo a la gallega … por favor , cambien el nombre por pulpo a la brasa o horno .. pero no es a la gallega… el pulpo a la gallega es hervido.

Food was excellent as well as the service. The owner, Lolo, was fantastic. Can’t wait to return!
The food is very good and they have a good bar menu. And I I was downstairs which is a little loud at times. But this is a great restaurant
Went with a friend and we only ordered a few of the tapas which were absolutely amazing. Will definitely be going back to try the paella! We had no problem making a reservation but I'm happy we did because the restaurant was full by 7pm
Great Tapas! loved the octopus and shrimp! The beet salad was terrific! like this Paella restaurant choices better than Chelsea.
Very charming place. Only one problem: some of the food came out much later than the other, but overall very good food and service.
The paella and service were spectacular! Special shout out to the octopus starter
Good Thanksgiving Meal! Turkey Paella was delicious
This was our last and best New York meal before heading back to Denver. The space was warm and inviting, the service was exceptional, and the paella was as good as it is in Barcelona. A special thank you to our server Patricia who made us feel so welcome.
The service is very good. And the wine and tapas are awesome!!
Do your self a favor and enjoy a delicious meal here. We loved the thanksgiving pre-fixe and can’t recommend it highly enough!
The upstairs dining was wonderful and the tapas was yummy. Kurt behaved well - what more could a dad want. The Alberino was deliciously dry. Service was flawless.
