The food and the wait staff were EXCELLENT. Very friendly and engaged. Thankfully that was the case because upon entering Tapas, the host was not friendly at all. Barely acknowledged us and couldn't be bothered to walk us all the way to our table. Overall we were very pleased and will go here again.

Not great. Service was pretty bland. Waitress never even introduced herself and was pretty absent the entire time. Food wasn't anything special. Got pork belly, steak tips, crab croquettes and meatballs. Pork and meatballs were pretty bad. Didn't care for them at all. Steak tips were good and the potatoes that came with them were nice. Crab croquettes were good, but overall pretty boring. $45 bucks later and we left hungry. Didn't even finish the meatballs or pork belly. We tried it. Didn't care for it. Won't be back.

Excellent food and great service. One suggestion would be that the menu could change up a bit! We've gone a few times and now have run out of things to try

Only had apps and drinks but food was pretty good. We really enjoyed the eggplant meatballs and fries. They were out of 3 types of beer that my husband tried to order. I had the three Gypsies sangria flight with vanilla chai, pumpkin and cinnamon spiced red. I enjoyed the cinnamon spiced red the best. We sat outside at a sidewalk table and had to endure all the people walking by, which is not Tapas fault. It was a good enough experience. There is no reason we wouldn’t return, other than a lot of other choices on Main St.

We actually ordered from the Cachette menu - their crepes are amazing - the Mexican and Le Poulet are our favorites - nice wine - great service - ate outside in their "parklets" - the heat lamp was out of kerosene, however - boo.

Food was great. Sat outside and food came out nice and hot. Really good red sangria. Good flavor and not too sweet. Service was ok. Probably overwhelmed by a very warm day in Nov.

Food was good. However, they were out of Diet Coke and an n/a beer that was featured on the menu.

Food was great! Our waitress was not pleasant. Flat affect didn’t even say thank you or re-fill our water. Went to use the restrooms- awful! The ones sink was clogged and filled also smelled. The other smelled too and did not have soap. Was very perturbed to see a server exit the bathroom prior to me. He obviously did not use soap to wash his hands since the dispenser was broken when I went in!!

The food was really good. The drinks not so much. They were out of 2-3 drinks we ordered. The waitress did not seem very enthusiastic and was slow to return.

Downtown Bethlehem has been reborn under covid. Outside tables, and heaters make for a great ambience- if a little loud: And the Tapas at Tapas on main are as good as ever. Yes, there can be a wait for a reservation, and there was less bread that normal because of the crowds, but it was a great evening with great food. Enjoy!

3 of us were sat at a very small table. All the food came out at the same time. We felt really rushed to the point we had to keep sending food back because we had no room on the table. This is a tapas themed restaurant and the courses should come out one at a time. This didn’t happen when they first opened. The owner was always there making sure things ran they way they were supposed to. We have given the restaurant several opportunities but it doesn’t change

The paella with chicken and steak had one small dried up piece of beef as the “steak”. There was some chicken and sausage, but truthfully it was mostly rice. Flavor was unimpressive. The outdoor space is fine if you sit near the street. If your table is on the sidewalk, pedestrians are too close and there were many pedestrians on a Saturday evening.

I know it was a busy Saturday night. BUT we waited for 30 mins. after ordering just apps & drinks to get our drinks. Unacceptable. The food was excellent, came out in a timely manner & was hot. We will come back & hopefully get our drinks much sooner next time.
