this is the kind of place you go with friends who know and appreciate good food and wine, not with friends who want to get their faces stuffed for $20 before getting wasted at a dive! honestly, i have been coming here for years, and while their menu never changes, their specials are always good. staff is attentive and food is usually top notch. i say giv eit a shot if you are willing to pay big bucks for top quality

I have to say that while the food is pretty good, the service nice and the atmosphere acceptable, this is one of the biggest ripoffs i have ever experienced. I understand these are tapas, but you simply can't charge $ 18 for a piece of cod the size of a walnut. It's offensive.

Not traditional tapas/pintxos, but they were decent Even for a moderately priced, local joint, the service level left much to be desired. (1) the server took away the signed credit card slip while we were finishing our drinks (it was early, 9:30pm). I left the customary 20% but wanted to reduce it to 15% for this. (2) staff would clear a plate without excusing themselves, once even taking away some precious cured ham we had not yet finished.

I really enjoyed the food and atmosphere here. Chelsea can be a little light on great places especially that far west. After being turned away at several places since it was 1030 we were warmly welcomed. The kitchen was closing so we ordered quickly but it came out surprisingly delicious. Service was great as well. I definitely plan to return.

After reading some of the negative reviews, we decided to go and find out for ourselves. The menu definitely sounded creative and interesting. Unfortunately, I have to agree with the negative comments, not a great value, Presentation, not great, too many other good places in the city to go!

Many of the previous reviews have complained angrily about the high prices at Txikito: do these reviewers live in NYC or Kansas??? Tapas is not an inexpensive proposition, ever, but the food here is of unusually high quality, and the portions (despite the name of the restaurant) are not small for tapas. My friend and I shared 5 tapas plates, with the idea of ordering the fries with cod roe mayo if we were still hungry. We were definitively NOT, and I am a pretty enthusiastic eater. Favorites were the narrow squid ribbons (my friend, a non-squid-lover, declared them a revelation), and the baked okra with yoghurt special, but everything was delicious and unusual. And the service was absolutely lovely. This is a a real find. Ignore the negative reviews below and head on over!

Although some dishes were good, the value was not there: tiny portions, outrageous prices. Some dishes, such as the "Cogollos" were insulting, and reminded me of one of Penn & Teller's episodes about a fake high end restaurant.
