atmosphere is cool and jazzy. Our Mixologist Dimitrio was the real kicker here. Knowledgeable about the food and great drink suggestions. my son and I decided to share a variety off the menu. Crab cakes were exceptional and steak was great, but the calamari and Oh My Gosh the prosciutto wrapped artichoke hearts were to die for!

We had 5 dishes served as tapas (they can do dishes either as main courses or appetizers for sharing) and each one was exceptional. They offer creative drinks (even created one just for us), delicious dinners and had vegan/vegetarian/gluten free menu offerings, followed by tasty desserts. Our server, Hannah, was exceptional, and recommended wines with different dishes and carefully explained which dishes were and were not gluten free. Don't let the fact that it is downtown cause you to avoid a great place!

This place is incredible. The neighborhood is a bit sketchy but don't let that deter you from this incredible find. The food is incredible and I am a hard core foody! We had Shrimp/Prawn Naan, calamari and the caprese, all were amazing, like on par with Italy. The bourbon cocktail was potent and tasty and the chocolate cake was over the top. Service was great. A real treat!

We had heard the name of Tapas 177 for many years but had never taken the time to try it until this past Friday. We saw a local news reporter interview owner Dimitrios describe the calamari salad as he was preparing for the Park Avenue Fest and the food truck he had there and we decided we had to check this place out. With the friendly and helpful advise of our server Hannah, we enjoyed a wonderful meal--- the calamari salad(calamari done to perfection, not rubbery) crab cakes, and a flavorful Morrocan stew. The portion were small plates but perfect for the 2 of us to share and enjoy. The dinner was topped off by the banana specialty desert, which was amazing!!
We will definitely return because there so many other interesting menu offerings and we have already raved about our experience to friends. We highly recommend you take the time to enjoyTapas 177.

Tapas 177 is a fun restaurant with a lot of interesting tapas dishes. We liked the ability to sit outside but it smelled like the garbage cans that were behind the restaurant so beware. We loved the tuna tartare napolean. The spring rolls were pretty good portobello cheese wontons were interesting. It is a great place for vegetarians because they will make pretty much anything without meat. The three tapas were just about enough for two people but maybe four would have been better. I would go again if I visited Rochester again.
