Skip the popcorn, save your appetite for the creative tapas menu, low key yet energentic spot, loved the wine on tap! Great food and service.

Excellent tapas in this fairly crowded, small-tabled operation located next to the wonderful Charles Theater movie complex. Around 5 p.m. it's uncrowded, a great place to talk and have a drink and snack (one of us had a glass of temperanillo, the other a Starfall gin & tonic - excellent). Our waitress gave us good and informed advice. We then... More

I love nothing more in Baltimore City than a trip to the Charles Theater for a great arthouse film, followed by a yummy tapas meal at Tapas Teatro. The drinks and small plates are wonderful, as is the energetic service. I have never had a bad meal there. Some personal favorites are the lamb meatballs, the fried potatoes and the... More

Located next to the Charles, there is plenty of seating in and outdoors (weather permitting). The soup special, potato, kale, mushroom and chorizo was a great cold night choice. The pork chop special was good as was the chicken on skewers. The waiter was a little too effusive.... but we enjoyed our dinner.

We had a good dinner after arriving on the train at this cafe where you can eat outside, inside and go to the cinema! The beet salad and eggplant asado were quite good and the pea fritters were very tasty. Service was good - our waiter kept multiple courses coming. Would go there again!

I love Spanish Tapas and Tapas Teatro is the best in Baltimore. The service was excellent, everything was perfectly cooked to order, yet quick and the food ! We had 2 orders of the Pollo al la Brasa (chicken with a cumin aioli), it was that good, the gambas al ajillo (shrimp in garlic) was delightful, other dishes such as... More

Tapas Teatro is one of our go-to restaurants in town. We like to grab a bite after a movie at the Charles next door or with no movie at all so we can take our time and savor the meal. If you do go before a movie, they are very good at getting things out fast without sacrificing quality. It... More

To stay that long in the business and maintain such superlative cuisine...Courtesy of The Man -- Tony , and great service and hospitality is simply not be denied.
