Hands down the best dining experience I’ve had in years. The new owner is hands on and has created an incredible environment. His dessert cocktails are one of a kind as well!

Overall we enjoyed our evening at Tapa. The server was awesome and was very attentive and great at his job. We enjoyed our wine and cocktails as we listened to the quiet music playing overhead. . Unfortunately the food was just average. The pasta dish was only lukewarm and not overly tasty and the salad was not great. It was quite expensive as well.

It is a lovely, intimate little place with excellent, friendly, and attentive staff. They were very helpful in helping to select a wine and choose menu items that were gluten free. The food was delicious. I would highly recommend it for a date night!

From the time we arrived, we were treated to the best service from Donovan. The Moscow mule was the best, loved that the ginger beer is made in house. The food was sooooo good. Portions just right. The dessert (pull apart something) were crazy tasty. All in all a very enjoyable evening out. Loved you all

Sometimes you walk in to a nice little restaurant not expecting anything special and then you get blown away. Right from the welcome, to the food and wine and over the top service. Can’t say enough about this place.

Excellent choice of food and wine. Tapas were priced much lower than many other tapas bars. Highly recommend the Sambuca shrimp. Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

The Sambuca Shrimps ate to die for, but everything else was really good too. And it's nice to be able to share the servings because then we get to try more of there's tasty dishes. :)

Food was good, service was great but probably because we were the only ones there. I find it to be a little over priced for what you get, though.

I like the ambient of the place. It is cozy and welcoming. I have been here before once. However, this time there were so many details and things that needed improvement:
- The owner should have had more personnel attending to the customers. There was only the bartender and the chef. I feel sorry for them, they were maxed out and unable to keep up with the demand. They did their best to keep up, but it should not be on them.
- We got our appetizers before we got any drinks that had been previously ordered
- We had to wait close to 1 hour to get our main dishes
- We did not get any water until we asked for it
- The cost of the appetizers were too expensive for the amount and quality of the food
- Some of the dishes like to Spanish meat balls and some other patatoe dish were dry or overheated by the time they got to the table. $18 for like 5 or 6 shrimps and another $5 to add some pasta, a bit too much. Same goes with the meal balls, a few for $16, plus $5 for some pasta on the side.
- The dessert $12 it was sold to us as some Strawberry delight, it was just a piece of cake randomly decorated with a strawberry on the side.
- the wine was good at $47
- the logistics - not good for winter. there should be a secondary door to step in. Each time someone walked in, we got hit with the freezing cold weather. We could feel like 2/3 into the back of the room. It was uncomfortable to be cold.
It was one of my best friends birthday, I do not think I return to this place.

Went out for V-day - servers were knowledgeable and super friendly. Made recommendations and suggested wine pairing. Food was good for sharing between the two of us - variety of Mediterranean flavors, and reasonable portions for the Tapas selections. A small, quiet venue with only 5 2-seater tables and one booth, with additional seating at the counter / bar. Servers worked hard to try and keep an empty table between the couples on V-day, bit as expected a quaint romantic place like this did eventually fill up. As it did, it was hard not to hear the conversation next door, but all in all the perfect atmosphere for our evening. We both left satisfied and had an extremely enjoyable dinner with a bottle of wine for about $100.

I did not feel that the food, while fine, was worth the price.

The restaurant was also VERY COLD.

Tapa Vino
Responded on February 5, 2019

Hello Rachel, Sorry that the table was cold. The server made several table touches throughout the evening, before and after the food had arrived. If you had let your server know, I'm sure they would love to have moved you or even turned the heat up. Our goal is to make all our customers as comfortable as possible although there is nothing we can do if it is not made to our attention. I also appreciate your feedback on the food and will do everything in my power to remedy this.

Great food and an attentive server. Time to update the furniture. The table was a bit sticky, the result of aging laquer losing its strength from repeated use over the years.

Food and service were fantastic. The cinnamon pull apart dessert was a great way to end the meal. It wasn't very busy that Thursday night so food came out quick. Parking was hard to find around that area though!

As a result of the Thanksgiving long weekend the restaurant was pretty quiet with only a couple of other patrons dining at the time we were. The service was fantastic and the food delicious. They had a nice selection of wine and a good range of menu options for all types of dietary restrictions/preferences. Will definitely dine here again in the near future.

In the past this place seemed to have way more Value for the amount/portion of food You received, however it seems now the portions are smaller, and less care has gone into the creation of the tapas 😞

The service is excellent!
