The service was not good. Our server was on her phone, didn’t deliver any of our food she had other people do it. We got our drinks after our food and our drink orders were wrong. Also the hostess were not nice at all. Such a shame the food is good but the service is not…

Overall, wonderful experience. The variety of chives is perfect but the best part is the presentation and tasting of each different item is well worth trying. My favorites of the nite were the bacon wrapped dates (shockingly, i loved these), seared scallops and the meat/cheese board. If u like sangria, the grapefruit and thyme or the lemon lavender are good choices.

The food was amazing as usual! It wasn’t crowded at all where we were sat, which is always a good thing! The service was good but the waiter took long to come back to our table.

Stopped for lunch and ate indoors. Service was slow and the food was mediocre. Bathrooms needed to be cleaned. Overall, the dining experience was below our expectations for downtown Bethlehem.

We were seated quickly, but never greeted by a server for 15 minutes. When we attempted to wave over a server, so we could place our order, we were blatantly ignored. However, once our food order was placed everything came very quickly from the kitchen. The food was great, and if the service wasn’t so bad, we would have rated this restaurant more than 3 stars.

Moldy bread, and the hostess lady was such a drama Karen, ughgh what a depressing place to go and eat, like turn on some lights and over priced crappy food, 20 dollars for some thinly sliced salami and some shop rite cheese, change up the menu already and get rid of Karen the hostess no personality and seemed soo miserable,, just do yourself a favor and stay away

Food was great however service was very slow. Our party was asked to leave twice because of a time cap when we already had our check and we’re waiting to pay. Poor communication between the staff

The food was excellent but the service was lacking. We weren't given instructions on how to access the menu and 20 minutes after being seated they asked us if we were ready to order.

Tapas on Main is our favorite restaurant and they have really stepped it up recently. The salmon tartare is beyond compare! I highly recommend this restaurant.

The food was good but the waiter took forever to attend to us. I understand that busy times occur and waiters/waitresses can’t be available at all times but this particular situation was different. We could see him spending time chit chatting at the bar. He forgot my drink and kept forgetting what we asked for. Besides the subpar service, the experience was good.

We love this restaurant, but with COVID and reopening we noticed a bit of a decrease in quality control of red meats. First let me say our scallops were out of this world! I would order two and sit quietly enjoying every bite.
The lamb chops however flavorful were under cooked so a bit tough, and the sirloin tips were over done and tough. We ordered the dates and meatballs to go home! We love Tapas on Main and will return soon.

Slow service, even at 4:45pm before the dinner rush. Was told I might not be able to have a small change in the Spanish baked potato, which no one on the service staff seemed to know what was exactly in it, because “the kitchen doesn’t like it”. No menus and there was no WiFi or service in the back corner of the restaurant. Ordered a steak which was ordered as medium and came out very over cooked, risotto for other meal was very al denote and dry. Previous visits service was slow as well but food was executed better.

The server never asked if we wanted drinks took forever to get her to come back she was rude and unpleasant for no reason.. they put us in the French part of the restaurant right next to the door,with avaailable seating in tapas. So my valentines experience was bad and unpleasant. If it wasn’t for my patient wife I definitely would have talked to a manager about my experience

Went for the restaurant week menu and everything I had was delicious! Started off with a flight of sangrias! My favorite was the honey lime one. Appetizers included spinach dip, crispy cauliflower, and beer cheese soup. The spinach dip with the Gouda cheese is a must have. Ordered lobster ravioli and carne con huevos for our entrees and both did not disappoint! My favorite part was the potato cake topped with a sunny side up egg that was served with the steak. Then, we ended the night with a Cinnamon Toast Crunch crepe! It was just the right amount of sweetness to top off what was a delicious meal. Definitely can’t wait to come back and try other items on the menu.
