    Great atmosphere, poor food

    The ambiance is delightful. Beautiful candles, romantic serene bar like atmosphere. Really wonderful. The wine we had was very nice, but the food was not. You cannot serve a pathetic cheese plate, cold limp fries, or Luke warm meatballs in this atmosphere. We expect more and won't return. Owners: just have more attention to detail. Your food is your reputation and you don't want a bad one.

    The portions are very small and the prices for the plates are high. There are most assuredly better wine and tapas places.

    I will return

    One of the best dining experiences I've had on the UWS. I came here on a Groupon deal with a good friend and we were both blown away by how good the food was. Truly, a great blend of flavors and textures. We enjoyed every single bite. The bottle of wine we ordered was served about 10 mins after we ordered and served in a decanter. It was robust and flavorful. The manager was sociable and attentive as was the waitress. Great atmosphere. If you're not on a budget I definitely recommend Tolani!

    Fabulous addition to the UWS

    Went here for the first time last night. Had walked by many times but it blended in with the other restaurants so had barely noticed it until the outdoor seating caught our eye. Wine list was diverse and excellent with many South African wines that I had not had before. Scallop dish was outstanding! Fish tacos were very good and light, and bread basket was really nice. Service was truly wonderful; knowledgeable and nice so that is a big incentive to return very soon! The interior was very pretty and decorated with interesting artwork which were created by the owners wife. All in all, a very good experience!

    Totally into Tolani

    Went here for the 1st time last night with my husband. Atmosphere was very cool. Huge wine list, but we had the white sangria (they do not serve red). It was very good. The food we ordered was great. The octopus was amazing. Fish tacos were ok. Lamb sliders were very good as well. (you can taste and smell the curry- so if you do not like curry, do not order the sliders). French fries were great too. There are tons of other menu items we want to try, so we will definitely be back.

    Just Right

    What a nice suprise from an unassuming storefront. The atmosphere on the first level is lovely huge unique shaped bar, where patrons are sit around communal style. Individual tables surround the walls - nice vibe to dining area. The food, wow. Cheese plate -- plenty to choose (had stilton, aged gouda and mechago) perfect mixture of hard, tangy and aged. Served with fresh raisin bread. We had two larger tapas plates to share - (1) seared scallops over bed of asparagus risotto -- scalloped were perfectly seared and spongy on the inside -- simple, delicious! (2) brick chicken (size of game hen (small) actually), the chicken skin was crispy w/light citris flavor served over grilled porcini mushrooms -- phenomonal. My taste buds are watering just thinking about it. This place is not cheap the bill with 4 drinks, cheese plate + 2 tapas plates was 150, before tip! But well worth it. Do not go here if you are looking for quantity, quality here. Perfect place to hit before a show at Beacon or Lincoln Center espcially if you don't want to be sitting through a two hour show with a full belly. Enjoy.

    Don't insult your tastebuds

    With all the choices out there- don't bother to aggravate yourself here. We tried a few dishes and while the menu appears to be interesting, the food is not. Sort of bland and quirky. The meatballs were very disappointing. Really was surprised that they were not much better. No items were worth raving about. Because of the small portions - it also gets expensive ..which makes this mediocre dining experience even more of tragedy.
