The dining room of this Amada spin-off lacks the elegance and energy of the mother ship, but we’re hoping an upcoming expansion will create better seating and traffic flow. Meanwhile, we’ll squeeze in to graze on Basque tapas: mussels Basquaise, and skewers of bacon-wrapped lamb and eggplant plunged into shot glasses of sherry jus.

Maybe it was one of those nights, but everything about Tinto was very good. Nice wines by the glass, good decor, not real noisy and the food was perfect. Of all the tapas places this is the one I would choose. Short rib was really tender and tasty. Don't miss the chocolate pot for dessert, its wonderful.

The food and wine tasting we did at Tinto last Sunday was very good...so was the service. We'll go back again to work our way through the rest of the menu and wine list.

As delicious as the food tasted, there's nothing you could do to a meal to charge those prices. I fully expect to pay more for excellent food....but I'm sorry....$12 for 2 shrimp...not what I'd call PRAWNS at all...is ridiculous.

I was pretty disappointed in my meal at Tinto. The food was just very OK, not really worth the money. The flavors just didn't seem go well together.

I went to Tinto for a happy hour and all ordered pitchers of sangria...my favorite. The sangria did not taste as fruity as I hoped it would and there were chunks of fruit in the drink like the way I usually have sangria. Overall I've had better but I have yet to try to food.

I have been to Tinto a couple of times for dinner, and while I have enjoyed the ambience and the food for the most part, I could not help but come away with the feeling that the Brochetas were too salty and the food was unexpectedly heavy. Amada is far superior.

We went with friends one time. We were very disappointed with the hostess's service, as well as the timing of the food. I would not go back.
