    A hidden treasure

    I would and have recommended this place to family and friends. The tapas are to die for and the drinks are tasty and cheap. Love this place!

    Delicious & Authentic Spanish Food

    I loved the food at Sol y Sombra. I ordered the stuffed red peppers, yellow rice, and tostones. My boyfriend had the lamb and mushroom risotto. Everything was delicious and brought to us quickly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you're in the area!

    I know Tapas!

    I'm Spanish, a Foodie, aspiring chef and the type of person that wouldn't spend $200 on a pair of shoes, but would easily spend $300 on a dinner. Sol y Sombra is not only one of the very few GOOD tapas in NYC, it also has great music, great service and the sangria is amazing! I read the reviews and I'm really sorry that some of you had poor experiences... I would recommend to give it another try). I have been going to this place for about a year now and the food service and drinks have not only been consistent, they are always satisfying and really, really good. I live 10 blocks away from the restaurant i have 2 other tapas restaurants near my house and i rather take the walk and get good food at Sol y sSombra than settle for Buceo 94. I'm definitely a fan of this place. in conclusion... give it a try... its totally worth it!

    Nothing out of the very ordinary..some of the tapas were good like the chicken anjillo, but the shrimp was tasteless, and the meatballs were rubber balls. Not particularly inexpensive, either..Saturday night prime time and six people in the restaurant with crappy music blasting tells you something..

    Wonderful experience

    First time at this neighborhood restaurant. We couldn't have been more pleased. We ordered a variety of tapas which were all good,. The grilled calamari in garlic sauce was particularly good. Our waiter was knowledgeable and his suggestions were right on. We'll be back.

    Man I am sorry but Food is really bad!

    We eat out a lot.... I can actually say we have been to most great restaurants in the New York city area... I am very particular about the freshness of food and in my recent experience with Sol and Sombra was really not that good! Man Paella was really bad...the squid tasted more like a old rubber than fish... Yup they need a huge improvement in their kitchen... I would never eat there again.... Best Paellas go to: Blue Ribbon downtown...very good or El Quijote...also downtown...

    Bad experience

    Short staffed. Servers were not respectful. Place was disorganized. Orders are forgotten. Meals are brought to wrong tables. 45 minutes after we sat, we finally- after complaining multiple times- received our coffee. Then.. our bloody marys were brought over another 10 minutes later... Bloody marys were watery and tasted like plain tomato juice. Servers did not care about anything and would at times completely ignore customers. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
