They get Spain right

Spain is such an amazing country and it is unbelievable that LA has such a small representation of the gastro-greatness of the country. This is a Spanish family so they get the feeling right. The food doesn't even have to be good because you feel good in there. But the food is good - A solid B to B+. Gambas and Jamon - I love that stuff! The Paella is one of the better to be found in LA. White sangria on a warm day, red sangria on a cold night. My only complaint is that they have both a Barcelona and Real Madrid jersey hanging in the bar and no true fan of either team would allow that.

I'm Spanish.... I would know!

Being from Spain (Barcelona) I was very wary of the type of authenticity and quality I would find in LA. Apart from the fact that South American food here is considered Spanish, I wasn't expecting to find the following: A funky, contemporary, classy authentic style restaurant, run by a real Spanish family, who are adorable btw. Everything I tried food-wise was outstanding, not only for LA standards (we always tend to accept a lesser quality because we are not in the actual country) but for Spanish standards too. It is always packed, so make sure you have a reservation. The ambience is fun and buzzing as to be expected in a Spanish restaurant. I LOVE IT and I am so happy to have some true Spanish cuisine so far from home! If it wasn't for the sound of American customers, you could be fooled into thinking you were in Madrid! Ol? to Tinto's Restaurant! Sois una maravilla!!

Stuck-up! Food okay

We live in the neighborhood and have tried to visit this restaurant when it first opened.......they were having a private party and we could not get in.......they were not polite about it. We have just now decided to give it another try.....Friday night........we were asked if we had reservations......by the stuck up woman that had an attitude..(believe it or not...THE OWNERS DAUGHTER!!) .we did not and were told we could eat at the bar or at a small table (very undesirable)......I wanted to leave........We go out to restaurants and spend money at least twice a week......and really did not like the way we were treated.....BE AWARE IF A RESTAURANT HAS MANY GOOD REVIEWS AND IT SEEMS LIKE THEY ARE REALLY TRYING TO TELL YOU 'HOW GOOD IT IS' ....IT PROBABLY IS NOT!.....
on another note....the wait staff seemed to understand how we felt (they saw how it was handled) and the service was very nice, ......the food was also okay....So if you can stand the rudeness........go for it!

Best tapas EVER in LA

I am from Spain and I have been living in LA for three years. As you can imaging, any of us are looking for home made food which remind us our country, our culture, our family and friends...

After trying a lot of Spanish restaurants and being so disappointed because they are sooo expensive for the amount of food they serve and so different from what Spaniards use to eat, I was desperate for the real Spanish food for almost two years!!

So well...I have been looking for the real deal!! the authentic Spanish food for a reasonable price. What was my surprise when I found a year ago Tinto Tapas!!!! Guys, this is for real!!! The atmosphere of the place is marvelous, the people working in there are amazing and the food!! uumm uumm umm DELICIOUS!!!

I invite you to try my favorite tapas: ""Datiles Rellenos de Queso de Cabrales con Bacon"", ""Albondigas a la Espa?ola"" like the ones our grandma used to make for us!!, ""Croquetas de Jamon"" and of course the ""pulpo""!!! ( Thank you Alex for always keep me in mind!!). Those are the ones that keep me going to Tinto :D ( I have to be honest!!)

But nooow!!! The chef has changed!!! and the PAELLA!!! uuuuf what to say about the new way the paella is made... it even has socarrat!!! (Valencianos sorry for my spelling!!) Thanks Mercedes to have those recipes and share them with us!!! My friends and I really appreciate your commitment!!

Moreover, I truly recommend Tinto for any occasion!!! The restaurant is a traditional place in where you can have business dinners, parties, thank of their amazing catering, friendly meals or just a romantic dinner. Oh!! And don?t forget the bar!! With Alex!!! You should go and meet him!! LOL

Go and have fun in Tinto!! You will thank me!!! They ALWAYS have a big smile :) Now that I live in NYC I miss your yummy food and your great service!! you should open one in here!!

Awesome Happy Hour, Great Sangria

I live around the corner from this place and went for the first time tonight, and it was great! I had been warned that it's a little pricey, so I checked out their happy hour. My boyfriend and I ordered a total of six tapas ($5 each at the bar during happy hour), and it was more than enough. The real standout is the bacon-wrapped cheese-stuffed dates. The complimentary bread is really good -- soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside. The sangria was awesome, and my boyfriend raved about his mojito. The atmosphere is great -- exposed brick and comfy leather chairs (even at the bar). It's sophisticated, but also relaxed. Everyone who worked there was really friendly, and the service was exceptional. The drinks are reasonably priced, but the regular (non-happy hour) food menu is kind of expensive. I definitely plan on hitting up the happy hour again, but for other times I think it will have to be more of a special occasion place.

Best new Spanish Restaurant in L.A

As a Spanish native living in L.A I am really happy to know that finally there is an authentic Spanish restaurant in L.A. This is a restaurant that combines great traditional recipes with innovative and delicious dishes. We chose Tinto to celebrate an anniversary and we had the most exquisite dinner there. All the staff at ""Tinto"" really made an effort to make our date a perfect one. I can highly recommend it and I do think it is the best Spanish restaurant in L.A.

Tinto is One of the Best Spots in L.A.! You can not help but be brisked away in this incredibly unique setting. I drove a long way to just to 'check it out' and it was so worth it! I will come here again and again because of the mouth watering dishes & the warmest & friendliest service around. Tinto's is a Gem!

I absolutely recommend Tinto

I am from Spain and I ended up in Tinto during a visit to LA, and I need to say I was really impressed by the experience. Tinto is better than many upscale restaurants in Spain. The atmosphere is really cozy and romantic, the staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the food is gorgeous. The wine list is very comprehensive (although I think they only have Spanish wines), and they really have fine examples from the best wine regions of Spain (I also tried the sangria). The price list is absolutely reasonable. You can eat on little tapas and taste different dishes while you enjoy a warm and comfortable Spanish atmosphere. When I was suggested to dine at Tinto I thought to myself it would be just another tourist-oriented fake Spanish restaurant serving Mexican tacos mixed with cold croquetas, but my perception changed radically as soon as I stepped into the restaurant, and at the end of the evening I could really say that Tinto went beyond my expectations about what an upscale Spanish restaurant should be like. I would absolutely recommend Tinto to anyone looking for an authentic, high-quality Spanish culinary experience.
