This was so good! Perfect! 2 tapas each person was perfect! Had the sweet breads, oxtail, chorizo noodles, pork belly, all were just as good if not better than I had in Barcelona! Desert chocolate something better than gelato in Milan!

In a small street just next to Union square this little restaurant is still one of my favorite place to eat Tapas style dinner. This time we sat at the bar and enjoyed several dishes from the manue. It's not a cheap place and certainly not a quiet one but if you are lucky you can have a small table... More

As a European that is just 3 hours away from real Spain it's quite crazy to fly to New York to enjoy authentic and surprising Spanish delicacies. What really annoyed, besides freezing like in Alaska because of ridicule low temperatures of their aircon- was the guy that served to us - there was no passion and no Spanish soul. What... More

When you are surrounded by native spanish speakers, you know the tapas are authentico! The Razor clams are as advertised, the bone marrow smacks you with Umami! Casual yet delicious, friendly, yet elevated food. Gracias!

I have visited this restaurant at least four times a year for the past eleven years and have never had a meal that was less than delightful. The menu changes frequently enough that I don't get bored. The wine list is excellent. The service attentive.

It's hard to go wrong at casa mono, but the razor clams and uni alone make this Michelin starred spot a reliable treat.

Restaurant is part of Mario Batali's empire and has been around a long time, for good reason. The food is simple Spanish tapas, executed to perfection. The restaurant is tiny, so reservations are a must. There is bar sitting for walk ins. The seared foie gras is one of the best I ever had. The grilled razor clams were perfect... More

Casa Mono is one of my top three restaurants in NYC. It keeps evolving over the years and the dishes all show passion and creativity. Every dish is very unique where the ingredients are pushed to maximum intensity. Wine list is great, and I always ask them to recommend something which never fails to provide a delicious bottle of wine.

Thank joan d
