    Great spot for some simply good tapas. Awesome and inexpensive happy hour on Sundays. Get one of everything on the happy hour menu. Service is great and a garden area outback. Try the gazpacho

    I love this place! Tuesday Pallea night is amazing! Pallea for two and a bottle of wine for $50! Great for date night, the cocktails are delicious, and they have a pre-fix menu for large parties.

    The tapas menu at El Born is heavy on the vegetable dishes, but you'll also find lamb chops, foie gras with quince, quail with chocolate, and crispy rabbit. Read more

    Makes me feel like home, in Barcelona. It tastes the closest to real Catalan tapas in nyc! Good wine and beer selection too.

    As of Fall 2014, there is a new chef and new seasonal menu. Much more creative presentation! Paella is delish. Socarrat was the perfect nutty, crunch you expect. Bravas is better than ever.

    Really loved this place. Great shitito peppers and potatoes bravas. The wine list is wonderful and the atmosphere is romantic but not fancy. Loved it.

    The grilled octopus dish is plentiful and delicious. Crispy and flavorful. Also, pretty solid happy hour deals.

    Grilled octopus is a must. Also extremely legit 2 for 1 gin and tonics on Thursdays!

    This place was great but beware the spicy martini is indeed spicy. Oh and they have PX!

    Tried three different tapas: the patatas bravas, the octopus, and some sort of meatballs. All of them were bland. The octopus just tasted like the oil it was cooked in.

    Avoid this place. I'm from Barcelona and this is not the real deal.

    Sadly I do not recommend this place. While the service was lovely, the food was really disappointing.

    Service is mediocre. Food too. Wait until they get it together before coming here.
