This is a cute little place downtown with artsy decor and great food. I would suggest going in the summertime on a night when they have Flamenco dancing!

This place was recommended by a co-worker and I will never listen to his advice again. The service was rude, everyone seem to have an attitude and when the food finally arrived it was terrible.

I love this tapas and wine bar because the atmosphere is conversational, energetic with music, but easy going and quaint at the same time. There is a wide selection of wines, and the people that own and work at the bar know exactly what

I have not lived in NYC for five years but I still consider this my local nightcap. Any day that I pass by I am guaranteed to see a good friend and meet someone new. I will eat the Chorizo and the Mushroom dish which is always delicious

We walk into this place and got the worst service and the worst meal ever. The owner was seating at the bar drunk, harrasing every woman who walked near him. There are plenty of other wine bars in this neighborhood , don't waste your

We made a reservation here for 8 people Saturday night and the staff in this tiny place couldn't have been more gracious and helpful. My party trickled in and there wasn't any attitude. We had a great meal and the sangria was terrific. I

I surprised my boyfriend and took him to the city for his birthday. We both love sharing plates, so I thought tapas would be fun. The option for a trio of wines was unique and much enjoyed. The meat and cheese plate we shared was

Great wines, not pretentious. Good music, sort of latin with an odd but strangely loungey feel. Very mellow. I was there on a Wed and they had a Cuban band for a couple of hours, there was dancing - all in a very small space but it was

Xicala was nice and cute, with a great wine list. It wasnt very crowded which was refreshing. However the service was up and down. Server's were extremely nice, yet were socializing too much with friends that were having drinks at the bar

Pros: Great Wine list, cute atomosphere

Cons: Unknowledgable, distracted wait staff

I love the ambience at Xicala - especially when they have live music Wednesday nights. My routine never changes - pitcher of Strawberry Sangria with a couple of close friends, a platter or two of cheese and fruit and an order of olives.

Perfect for a date of any type! The place is tiny but extremely warm and friendly. The bartender was accomodating and helpful. We ordered the tasting tray and everything we tasted was absolutely delicious. The wine choices are fabulous

This may be the smallest restruant I have ever been in but they make up for it with great tapa's and wines. You can't fit 20 people in here so it is deffinately cozy. The staff are friendly and the service is good. This place is worth

Xicala is a great little romantic Spanish hideaway thats surrounded by a young hip neighborhood. The music is romantic as is the atmosphere. I loved the array of wine and was very pleased with the service. Try the chorizo con papas!

This is a great little wine bar. It has good music, nice tapas, an interesting selection of wines (primarily Spanish) and a lowkey hip neighborhood clientele. Most importantly, it is reasonably priced. This is definitely a hidden gem,
