I had made a reservation for 6-7 people for a friday night for a birthday dinner. We were seated when we arrived, and there was a rather large party next to our table which could have been the main culprit for the very haphazard experience we received that evening. We ordered the paellas straight as they take a bit longer to prepare but then it took a waiter (which we never had the same one throughout the meal) 20 mins to come back to order our tapas. So our paellas came out first. Then they messed up our salad order. Then different waiters kept coming over with different dishes throughout the meal asking if we had ordered them. It was just completely unorganized and chaotic. However, the food was good. I won't come back but if you have the patience to deal with inept wait staff, might be worth the food- but maybe sit at the bar?

This place is a must see. I was there last Thursday night, and they had live Flamenco music which was a real complement to their already authentic Spanish atmosphere. I haven't found a spot in the city that really reminds me of Spain like this place does. I've been to plenty of Spanish restaurants, but I feel that the concept of Tapas is too commercial in the city. Not at Lizarran...they are all really cheap, and theres so many different options on the menu. You have the option to sit or stand just like a Spanish "taberna," and everything was pretty cheap... I'm going back to try the paella, but in the mean time...Thanks Lizarran!

Warning to the folks with a real platte for excellent spanish cuisine, Boquerones servered with American potatoe chips (O Lay), a Crime to spanish authenticity in the kitchen. Paella lacked Love and Passion! Who ever is in charge of the kitchen, must go!

Lizarran is a fantastic restaurant to have fun. $2.5 for pinchos is AWESOME. Also the paella was beyond what I expected it. The tapas were very tasty and fresh. If i were to go back i would go back for the Flamenco Show on Thursdays, also they have a large selection of wine. Most of the wine are from Spain so its something new in Soho.

My husband and I went to Lizarran for our first wedding anniversary after having our honeymoon in Spain. The food was very authentic and a great reminder of our trip. The service was excellent, our waitress was friendly and accomodating and explained their system for ordering pintxos (the mini tapas for 2.50 each). The sangria was fabulous and we had a great time tasting lots of different hot and cold pintxos. The chef even came out to meet us and gave us a delicious complimentary pintxo. We also tried 2 of the tapas and were really happy with everything. The atmosphere is laid back and cozy. We will definitely be back!

The restaurant look in the front like a little bodega.. a small table in the front with empty bottles of wine.. a board with everything write in spanish when the restaurant is located on Mercer St. Soho, NY... Our server did not speak english very good!! was hard for us to understand him and for him to understand us.. He didnt know anything about the wine list.. We asking for something similar a pinot noir.. and he bring us something like cabernet.. Thats mean that nobody there knew anything about their own wines... We ask for some tapas and a paella.. They charge 4.00 for 4 pieces of bread with tomato!! We ask the server for some bread for the table.. and we were surprise because they charge 3.oo for bread... when in most of the restaurant the give bread as soon as you seat on the table. The paella was 46.00 / 23.00 per person.. the portion is small for charge 46.00.. Was a seafood paella.. with 2 clams 2 mussels, 2 shrimp, 2 calamaris... and was really salty... The most expensive and the worst paella that i ever try!! the server was bringing the famous pintxos that they have but 2.50 for a piece of bread with a little bit of serrano ham on the top is NOT a good deal!! the server bring us also hot pintxos.. The same pintxos where seat on the top of the bar one hour after they were offered to us. With no cover!!! Lizarran is Not a bad place.. they just need a better administration and server that can speak english or at least understand!! and server that know what they are serving.. my server was from spain and he didnt knew about the wines from his country!!
