Welcome, from owners Kim Moltzan and Chef Robert Moltzan. This Wine Bar/Restaurant is a result of two lost souls finding each other, and making a commitment to not only each other but to you our guests...neither of us could have done this alone...together we ask you to please share in our happiness.
Our goal here at Tapas 1 is simple... relax, get away from the distractions that are called life. No verbal cell phone usage and no televisions will help you reach that goal. Practice the lost art of conversation. Enjoy friends or loved ones. "Take a breath, take a sip and relax..." we hope you have a fantastic experience with us.
We are a small 35 seat wine bar with very limited seating. We do not take reservations. The largest group we can accommodate is 5 because we have a combination of soft seats and high tops, most of which are at the bar.
Our goal remains the same to give our guests a relaxing evening of conversation and discovery
Special Events and Catering
Our restaurant is available for private events: business lunches, wine & beer dinners and tastings, receptions, cooking classes and more. We would love to discuss how to be a part of your next event. For more info check out our Face Book Page.
Due to these events & functions we are closed to outside guests, so please follow us on Facebook to get the latest updates and information or to make your reservations.
Seasonal and Local
We refuse to compromise on quality in our restaurant. That's why we source as many fresh ingredients as possible from local farmers markets and vendors.

“Chef Moltzan is a consummate creative. He’s charismatic yet humble; has outrageously sensational food ideas, yet knows how to break it down into a practical method. Most of all, he is passionate about creating great food.
I gravitate toward people like him. They are the ones I admire and want to follow.” — Kathy Grey, Editor, Florida Weekly

"If you haven't had a chance to experience the Tapas Culinary experience, head out to Tapas 1 hungry with plenty of time to explore the menu. It's also a great choice after a long, late day at work when a full meal may seem way to much or when you cant decide what you have a taste for..."
