A friend and I went to Txikito last night and had an amazing time. We ordered a pitcher of the Zurra (sangria) which was great and then shared 4 tapas and a desert. Each dish that came out was better than the next! My favorite was a dish of white beans, muscles, and white wine sauce, but everything was really fantastic. The restaurant is small, and it filled up pretty quickly (they now take reservations.) If you appreciate great food and Basque flavors, you have to try this place! Our bill came out to $88 and it was definitely worth it. I will be eating at Txikito again soon!

I have been intrigued by this restaurant for a while now and went for the 1st time last night with friends. Happily, it exceeded my expectations in every way. The service was nicely done for a casual restaurant, and our server was very helpful in choosing both food and wine. As I said to my husband on the way home, it felt like when one i visiting a new city and happens upon a restaurant that "feels" local and delicious and terrific.

well-intentioned but underflavored and overpriced

  • No, I would not go back!

the host and server were super-friendly and accommodating and clearly meant well, but the wine was too cold, the portions tiny for the price, and the flavors inconsistent at best. the spare ribs were bland, the gratin of artichoke, Roncal, and jamon only a notch better. not the worst place you ever tried, but considering the hype, quite a letdown. there are far better meals out there at half the price.

My girlfriend and I have made it a mission of ours to visit as many tapas places in the city as possible (lamenting the demise of 'El Cid', and approving of 'La Nacional'). Having read about Txikito I surprised the gf on her birthday and took her to Txikito. What can I say, a fantastic Basque spin on standard tapas with exquisite flavours and attention to detail, but not in a fussy way, all delivered in an intimate venue where the chef, Alex Raij, puts in regular appearances. The Rusa salad or the Foie Micuit were my highlights, and my girlfriend the Atuna sandwiches. We nearly went back the next day, but a wait will make it seem so much better when we do.

Four of us dined at Txikito this past Saturday night having no idea what a phenomenal meal & dining experience were in store for us. EVERYTHING was fresh, flavorful, and beautifully presented, and the ambience is cozy & inviting. Some of the standouts of our meal include: Arraultza: open faced sandwich made with a sofrito (pepper, onions, and garlic) marmalade, chorizo, and a fried egg -- an absolute must have! Piperrak: fried Basque peppers tossed coated with sea salt. Rusa: their version of a Russian salad w/ potatoes & tuna. Txiki txanpi: mini mushroom and shrimp grilled cheese sandwiches - YUM!! Without a doubt, you must order zurra, Basque sangria with your meal! Their cake & chocolate pudding-like confections were fantastic conclusions to the meal, as was their freshly brewed café con leche! We all can't wait to return soon!!!
