    Top notch Spanish brunch in authentic atmosphere. Salty green peppers were superb appetisers. Salt cod brandade w baked egg, maybe forever fav brunch dish!!! Nicely vegetarian accommodating too.

    Impressively genuine Catalan cooking, with a slight twist by talented chef, Seamus Mullen. Tons of delicious Jamon Iberico iterations on menu. The squid ink fideua paella is to-die-for! Martinis = A++

    Patatad bravas are very good. The paella is shit & everything including the croquettes is not worth the price you are paying. Walk 2 minutes and go to Joe’s & grab a fresh mozzarella pizza & be happy.

    Duck dish, pulpo, peach dessert, & arroz negro! For 4 diners, ordered 8 tapas and a paella. Delicious & authentic Spanish food. A bit pricey, but worth it. $1 oysters 5:30pm-7pm everyday.

    This place is amazing! Take the waiter's recommendations. The jamon croquettes and the clams were delicious. The Brussel sprouts blew our minds! The paella was magnificent!

    Still my favorite of all the Spanish restaurants in NYC. Nightly selection of additions to the menu, along with a menu of staples that change seasonally. Service is stellar.

    You can't go wrong with the Iberico ham. Pulpit was also a pleasant surprise with its bits of pickled goodness and cabbage.

    Impeccable food in a cozy ambience. The more adventurous that you are, the more delicious it will be. Get the pig cheek and whatever lamb special they have. You won't be disappointed.

    Great rustic vibe. Crispy potatoes, shishito peppers, heirloom tomato + watermelon salad are all great starter tapas plates. Loved the bread pudding for dessert (and not usually my thing).

    Francesca and Dev head to Tertulia for dinner here. They wait an hour for a table but their meal — ham, bread, probably paella and more — looks good. [Episode 9] Read more

    Some of the best service in the city and great tapas to boot. Try the arroz al horno if it's on the menu, pimientos de padrón and sample from the well-picked wine list

    Brussel sprouts, mushrooms and lamb are a must! Pretty much anything from this grill will be amazing.

    Order a lot and share it all because everything on the menu is amazing. Get the lamb and the beets for sure! Both are to die for.

    Can I recommend everything? Impeccable food in lively atmosphere. Don't miss the beets, the arctic char, the lamb or the pan con tomate. Desserts are well worth it.

    Try-Pan con Tomate is a play between three ingredients: great bread, tomatoes, and olive oil. Almejas a la brasa perfectly grilled little cockles that are tender and briny with a hint of bitterness. Read more

    The pimientos de pardon were so unique and delicious but the special Brussels sprouts with pork belly was the winner of our four delicious tapas items! I would visit again!

    I had the arroz negro and some oysters. Their seafood is amazing, but the squid ink rice was a bit overwhelming. Overall a good experience.

    Croquettes. Arroz with snails. Escarole. Please do the amazing short rib if they have it.

    A former stop on our tour. This was an old speakeasy, and then several literary bars. Ask the staff about some of the literary giants that came here. If they don't know, come ask us! Read more

    My boyfriend is Spaniard, so we go a lot to Spanish restaurants. This place was ok, not amazing. A little bit pricey, not too flavorful. I could eat here again but not by my own initiative.

    Sit in the back room by the open kitchen and order freely, keeping a menu and a bottle of wine at the table. Great fun reminiscent of Barcelona...

    The best Spanish restaurant in town is run by a guy from Vermont named Seamus Mullen. Try his head-on langustinos and arroz a la plancha with Iberico ham and snails.

    If you are by yourself, get the Jamon iberico + pan con tomate for $21

    Best tapas I’ve had in a while. Extra brownie points for knowing the difference between jamón serrano and jamón iberico.

    Good for a chill night bc service is slow, so you can enjoy yourself for longer. The Mezcal is great

    The Arroz a la Plancha is the signature dish and rightly so. The cojundo revisted - a deconstructed bacon, egg & cheese - is a fun start to the meal.

    Probably the best non-seafood paella I've ever had! Fried potatoes with aioli = similarly ridiculous.

    Awesome lunch specials! If you don't know what to get, it's easy: pan con tomate + paella del dia.

    That this place is packaged is without any doubt reasonable. It is as close as I can imaging to spain, without having to fly there.

    Not high quality Spanish food, just middle range sold as a delicatessen. Don't choose $50 or $60 menu options, go for separate plates of your choice.

    The food is cooked like fine New American fare, with Spanish ingredients. Wouldn't call it authentic.
