Wonderful UWS place. Authentic Spanish tapas, excellent wines. Not cheap, but worth the price.

If you crave a neighborhood restaurant that rises above the "local-ness" to be a real contender,... then try Buceo95. This is the only restaurant we doubled-back on this summer to enjoy twice. Love the food, an array of vegetable, meat & fish tapas. Nice big pitchers of sangria, too. The room - open to West 95th Street - has a very comfortable vibe. The owners - Courtney & Jim - take turns roaming the small dining room and making sure that each guest is well-cared for. Total tab & tip for each of our visits was about $100 per couple. Most importantly, if you don't absolutely love those blistered green peppers, you probably won't appreciate my orange glasses either. BTW you can eat the whole thing including the stem.

The food was absolutely delicious. I know now why this place was packed and buzzing when we walked in. The service was great and when we had a small problem, the maitre d' stepped in and generously comped us. Would not hesitate to recommend this place.

My husband and I were just in New York and had friends recommend Buceo 95.My husband is a Chef from Italy and is very critical of what he eats! We were both very impressed from the minute we walked through the doors! The cozy atmosphere made you feel like you were in a restaurant in Europe, the owners came up to us and the staff was friendly! The food was delicious , we tried at least 8 Tapas from the menu and each one was cooked to perfection! We will definitely come back the next time we are in New York and have already told friends about it.

Its not that I hated it but it certainly wasn't worth going back to. This restaurant is a few blocks from home and always busy so I had wanted to try it f0r a while now. We were wedged into a tiny seat inside at the communal table. The restaurant was so noisy my husband and I had to shout to each other to be heard. The service wasn't great either. Although our server was very nice he did make us wait quite a while to place our order. Then he brought out the wrong dish but ended up comping us for it which was appreciated. I could overlook all of this if the food were better. Everything was so oily! The peppers were coated in oil and the skirt stake and baby octopus were absolutely swimming in it. All in all there are much better options in the neighborhood and I will not be back...

Just had dinner here and everything was excellent, comparable to that on a recent trip to Spain in fact, the service was friendly and highly efficient without being pushy, and open to the street on a lovely evening, was a real pleasure. Loved the fried peppers and bacalao fritters and the pork belly. Only problem is selling wine either by the bottle or carafe of 1/3 a bottle (typically $14+), rather than anything by a smaller and cheaper glass.

Decent food. Nothing special but always extremely loud. Not a good date spot. To top it off, these guys don't deliver. So if you want good food in a talkable atmosphere, go elsewhere. If you are looking for a super loud, just ok spanish food place, then it's great in a pinch.
