We had a fabulous meal at La Tasca! We were a party of 5 adults, 5 teenaged children, order after order of delicious tapas. Don't miss the bacon wrapped dates!

I cannot stand smelling Pine Sol cleaner when I walk in. The bar staff is rude. Many waiters act as if they are doing you a favor by waiting on your table. American food portions are very large in general but the portions here are nothing like what you see in Spain. When you walk into a Spanish tapas bar... More

At La Tasca you order a number of small plates so that you end up tasting a little bit of this and a little bit of that. The service and food were very good. Our bill ended up being a little more then expected, because we ordered so many items. But over all we had a very enjoyable dining experience.

My wife and I honeymooned in Spain, and Tapas is one of our favorite cuisines. I often cook it when entertaining. So when we had theater tickets in Arlington Heights I was pleased to find La Tasca just a block from the theater. We ordered a few of our favorites - Patatas Bravas, Chaminones Barcelona. We tried a special: goat... More

LaTasca offer the opportunity to engage in communal dining with friends. Great menu options and fantastic wine list. This restaurant has expanded over the years - the main dining room is still the best seating.

I visited this Tapas place after a few years. It used to offer great tasty food with Spanish zest and crisp entrees. It has lost that a bit. However, drinks and ambiance is great. Location is great. Service was very good but a bit slow. We ordered a few entrees from specials. They were not that great. Felt like Chef... More

Went here for a girls-night outing and had a blast. The restaurant was very quiet and good for an intimate meal. We ordered a number of plates (as this is tapas style) and shared amongst our group. The food was a tad bit on the pricey side but not too bad once split-up between us each. Great spot on the... More

My niece and I met after work to have dinner here. She has been here before and I had not. The Decor of the restaurant was very charming. It looked a little Spanish and a little Italian. The menu had changed from when my niece had been here. The Waiter was very helpful in helping us with some selections. We... More

I have dined at this restaurant several times over the last several years. It has been an ok experience. This time there was five of us. We were put in the main dining area. To fit us they had to center the table in the middle and it was very awkward place because of servers, and customers constantly pushing by... More
