My wife and I recently had our anniversay dinner at Euzkadi and we both came away very pleased. We ordered a salad and six tapas for the two of us, which may have been one plate too many. The duck meatballs were incredible, and my wife loved the goat cheese croquettes. The pork loin was a little bland in my opinion, though my wife liked it. The service was really good, and really friendly (even though we were a bit late for our reservation). My water glass was always quickly refilled, they cleared the empty tapas plates right away so we had more space, and our waiter seemed to be in a great mood. FYI- The restaurant is a bit tight on space, so you will basically being sharing dinner convo with strangers, but it's NYC and that always happens. Also, it was a little warm in the restaurant, so maybe dress in layers you can take off. All in all we had a great dinner, and the check wasn't too bad either.

Although the food is good and the atmosphere is pleasant- this restaurant to get a lesson from Gordon Ramsay re strcuture. the kitchen failed to fill the order of the couple sitting next to us. The waitner said -- you are just not getting the tapas you ordered-- Really. It took 45 minutes for us to get our order- after another table sat down and ordered after us. When you are that disorganized you offer something to your guests other than "you just are not getting it."

In Spain, "tapas" are small affordable (sometimes free if you're drinking) plates of fresh food. At Euzkadi, Tapas is overpriced tasteless food. The Tortilla Vasca (a glorified omellete) was hard and oily. The Bacalao was tasteless, unseasoned (except for pepper) pieces of codfish swimming in oil and peppers so hot that I couldn't eat it. I ended up sending it back. We walked away paying $45 for two small salads and a piece of tortilla. No wine or desserte either. Warning, the prices are about 20 percent higher than the prices advertised on their website. Don't waste y9our money here.

Food: The tapas are superb. Everything we had was done very well. The tortilla is among the best I have ever had and the quail was an interesting diversion. Atmosphere: The music on Tuesdays is very good and the place is cozy and inviting. The tables are a bit close together. Value: The food is so good and the portions are decent. Its worth it. Service: Solid and friendly

Euzkadi is one of those places you hardly want to write a review for because of the fear that the secret will get out. Like others have said, the music on Tuesdays is wonderful. The food is consistently good and delivered as it's ready, so you won't get 10 tapas on your table at once, and you won't wait long to start nibbling. The sangria is among the best in NYC. I can't say enough good things about this little jewel in the East Village.

The live music on Teusdays is orgasmic. It feels like you are sitting on a stoop somewhere in Spain with the Flamenca artists that play on the streets there. Rather, you are in a cozy booth with some hearty tapas and an ambiance that resembles more of a cave than a stoop. Bring a date here if you are looking to score to romance points! Also, must try the fried goat cheese with honey....

I've been to so many tapas restaurants around the city... and I've also been to a few in the Basque region. If you want a real Basque ambiance and a few pretty great dishes, check this place out. Not every dish is outstanding, but most are excellent and there is enough variety to fulfill your cravings. The waitress gave us some great recs as well. Goat Cheese fried with honey and Octupus Salad! There was also live flamenca band playing, very cool.
