Have considered going to this place, but was scared off by monotonous succession of spam-like rave reviews written in the same style apparently on behalf of the restaurant. Visitors to this site please note: the reviews are generally more trustworthy when they come from people who have reviewed multiple businesses.

I have no idea how this restaurant has received so many 5 star reviews because between the quality of the food, and the ridiculous prices, it is worth at best 1 star (and that's stretching it).

The sangria barely has any alcohol, and tastes bland. The oyster appetizer looked like it was regurgitated and tasted that way as well. The quail leg was freezing cold, and when we told the waitress that it was too cold to eat, she explained that all cold tapas were that temperature. There is a big difference between cold and the temperature of an icicle...and this was so cold it was not even edible.

The Jamon Serrano plate was little better that a few slices (probably from a package) tossed on a plate, and the stuffed peppers were bland and also freezing cold. The dish of olives was small, and little better than the ones from a jar. For such low quality food the prices were astounding, and the quantities were tiny. In one dish, about half of the clam shells were actually missing clams inside.

Now I understand that Tapas can be expensive, and have no illusions that quality food has a price, but these prices are truly unjustifiable. Our bill (for 2) was a bit over $100.00, and we still left feeling hungry.

Please, before you even think about going to this place, read all of the REAL reviews...not the fake ones that go on and on about how authentic and cozy this place is. We fell into the trap of reading the good ones, and writing off the bad ones as isolated incidents, and that was a BIG mistake...actually a $100.00 mistake.

Pros: Looks Authentic, but looks are deceiving

Cons: Overpriced, Low Quality, Small Portions

.

the service was sooooo slow. A few of the items we ordered were ok, the cheese stick things forget what they are called. The chicken with french fries was the nastiest thing.... it looked and tasted like they had pulled it out of the dupster at the meat packing plant 2 blocks away......
The sangria was good but the small pitcher was only 3 glasses. Bad value.

I do hear that they have a decent happy hour, might be worth checking out for drinks .

Zipi Zape Tapas Bar is a great place to go out and have a good time with friends. The food is great. Unlike most places this place gives you good portions for good prices. It was great!

I went out to Zipi Zape, a Saturday night, and we drove in. There was parking everywhere. There is a bar and restaurant (seating area), and the owners are very relaxed. The patrons seemed to be very relaxed and willing to talk to you as soon as you walked in the door. The drinks were awesome, and we had a wonderful time hanging out until they closed. They had even stayed open an extra half hour after close for us since we were having such a wonderful time. All, of the food was wonderful. This is a must do to start your night.

Don't waste your time experimenting around Williamsburg. I've been here for 8 years and I have to say Diego's cooking is an old homestead, everything I've had was delicious, and the service is awesome. I really cannot give enough accolades.

Wow, I have not had tapas that good in a long time! I heard good reviews & they were actually true! The croquetas, garlic shrimp, razor clams, chorizo et al were amazing. can't go wrong with anything on the menu. House cocktails were limited but the wines are nice. Worth the trip to Williamsburg! Staff was very laid back & attentive. Cute decor & nice ambience! This one is a winner & a keeper

I totally agree with another review in the long list (ARE YOU KIDDING ME) "Where have you eaten before" It was so overpriced the food would not even be enough to feed my little baby cat. (3 mini sausages cut them in halves to make the illusion of six?) The services was not apropiated for a place which pretend to be so fancy. The waitress was dress in pajamas or so. Last thing, what is the point of having dining room if you not even have dinner to serve. We spent a big amount in just ten minutes just to have to go to a real restaurant to have dinner.

Dear owner(s):
You guys are definitely trying too hard. What I mean by that is that you are entering all reviews yourselves. What a bunch of loosers!!! Hey if your restaurant is not good enough don't you think people will notice...da! You don't have to be super smart to figure it out. Do great cooking and the excellent reviews will come themselves..but don't think that citysearch users are stupid...please.

The food is good but the portions are small even by tapas standards. There are a couple nice tables but they are outdoors and the place is crowded. Indoors is loud and too brightly lit. Most of all, the service was not just horrible, but we were treated with utter contempt by our waitress- who turned out to be the manager!

Through a recommendation from a friend ,I decided to give a visit to Zipi Zape....When I entered the restaurant Iwas taken aback by so authentic cold tapas bar right by the entrance....Everything was so colorful....Try the 10 tapas tasting menu.....Tortilla espanola was the most flaky ,delicious tortilla I've tried....Then slowly find your way to the hot tapas menu...Bechamel croquetas,choricitos,grilled gambas,chipironcitos....everything we had was fantastic....and the finale....warm chocolate souffle.....the best I've had so far.....LOOKING FORWARD TO COME FOR MORE

We were there last night ..The place was packed...combination of europians and Americans.Was very pleasant...I am little bit of shock about the previous review as well...To me who ever wrote this review does not have any clue about spanish food.I also highly suggest that person to take a look at the NEW YORK TIMES sunday issues to see Spain's upcoming high end can products..Yes they use some of these products in a very genious way but their hot tapas selection comes right out from the oven or grill...Obviously these people opinions were only one sited..They did not try the hot tapas dishes...Again very happening place ..we were glad to be there

Does someone from CitySearch own this place or something? i see nothing but 'great review's for a place that really is not so great. better tapas than spain? where were you people eating before this? out of a garbage can? the food here is mediocre at best! extremely overprice for the microscopic portions you get. being from spain, i would so enthusiatically recommend this place.
i wish someone had half a brain to notice the extreme similarities between all the previous reviews and realize that they were written by either the restaurant under different names or the owners family and friends.

We let our host to choose the specials for us...so we tried black mediterrian mussels with white wine,monk fish liver pate,grilled fresh anchovies,dry cured tuna....The menu is also so big..I can't belive the chef is producing so much specials with great quality and price range..The service is very attentive and professional....oupps.I forgot about chocolate souffle..they told us they have customers take the trip from manhattan to have this heavenly dessert...No doubt after try the souffle , I will do the same thing..........
