Lobster Paella and Black Ink Paella are a MUST! gambas, Datiles, coca, jamon serrano ... everything was delicious. Our server was friendly and professional I am definitely coming back

Stopped in here on a Sunday afternoon for a couple of Tapas and won't be back. The croquettes were starchy and the fried calamari was tough and had no flavor. The sangria was pretty goo though.

Soccarat is one of the better Spanish restaurants in the city. The tapas are uniformly good and the paella tends to be somewhere between good and great. The place has a nice atmosphere - perhaps a bit too dark? - and I can't stand communal tables but somehow the barstool-height communal table at Soccarat isn't so bad (and besides, much of the seating is at regular tables.)

Went there on a Friday night without reservations...but the staff was great at trying to accomodate those waiting for tables or to be seated at the bar. We ate at the bar and loved it - the black paella was excellent, sangria was delish! See you soon Socorrat :)

After finally finding the very non-descript new offshoot of its Chelsea sister, and getting over the fact that I would have to deal with communal seating, I settled in to the Spanish cuisine solution to an otherwise icy cold night. The white sangria was a'ight...my brother thought it tasted a little like orange soda. They have an interesting wine selection, so I would opt for that over the sangria next time. We started with the patatas bravas, tortilla and pan tomaca. The tortilla and pan tomaca (a Spanish bruschetta if you will) were amazing, but the patatas bravas was nothing special. We chose the Paella De Pescado Y Mariscos for our main dish and it was more than enough for the two of us...fair amount of fresh seafood, hearty flavor...though they could have been a little less heavy-handed with the salt. The service was very good and, while when I arrived at 7pm it was empty, the place filled up to capacity within 30 mins. While I am never one to enjoy communal seating, Socarrat makes it a little less adverse by providing larger padded stools and seating people a fair amount of distance apart unlike many other joints out there that have painfully packed accomodations. Overall, it was pricey for what it was but I would probably venture back if I happened to be in the 'hood and had a hankering for tapas and paella.

I'd like to like this place. But I can't. The mushroom tapas were the only redeeming food item, and the paella price is PER PERSON! what? be ware.
