We went to La Tasca before attending a Shakespeare production. The food was excellent and the service was wonderful; prompt and solicitous but not overbearing. We will return.

We had 4 tapas, plaintains, grilled lamb chops, sirloin steak and sautéed shrimp and two sangria drinks. Food and drinks are good. I've been to 3 locations like the Alexandra the best. Chinatown very busy.

After an ah-mazing experience at the Alexandria location, we decided to close out our trip at the Chinatown location. Big mistake. First of all, although we were acknowledged when we arrived, we did not receive a friendly welcome. But we were there for the food, so we soldiered on. We were there for lunch just before we were to fly... More

A group of us had lunch here recently and all enjoyed a marvelous meal. There were so many things on the menu that sounded delicious so we all ordered the Unlimited Tapas lunch for $28.00 per person. Since we were all sharing the food we ordered everything on the menu but were stuffed before we got through them all. I... More

I don't know where to start except to say this restaurant is awesome. It is a bit on the pricey side but well worth it. ($35 for pitcher of sangria, $40 paella, $70 tasting menu/9 tapas). We ordered the tasting menu of 9 preset different tapas and paella which was plenty of food for 4 adults & 2 kids. We... More

We are here for Easter lunch and loved the place. The portion sizes were perfect for the three of us and each dish was delicious. There was a large party going on downstairs and they had someone cooking the biggest dish of paella that I have ever seen. Great place! Highly recommend.

I was in town for business and wanted to try tapas for the first time. The host was a bit reluctant to seat a single guest, but did it anyway. There were so many options on the menu that I was not sure where to start since I was by myself so I asked the waiter. He gave me a... More

We stopped at this place and it was so good that we went two more times during our week stay. The tapas are amazing and during happy hour (which is everyday starting at 4pm) they have a nice selection at 4 bucks. We also had a paella which was the best one I have had (not even in Spain they... More

Best tapas we've had outside of Spain. A truly fabulous meal! The sangria might actually be BETTER than what we had in Spain.
