Outstanding food and awesome Sangrias. Tad pricey but worth it! To die for salmon and the most tender steak. Salads were delightful as was the atmosphere, romantic upstairs seating made for a wonderful dining experience.

We went to get tappas mid-afternoon on a Sunday. The atmosphere was nice (we ate outside), but the service was not very good. The steak was very tough. In fact, out of four pieces, two were full of grizzle and fat. The wait staff did not return until it was time for our check. No checking in if we wanted... More

The tapas we really delicious here and the sangria we had was also very good. I'd highly recommend it, but keep in mind each tapas plate is around $10-$25 and is not very much food. If you're really hungry you might rack up a pretty steep bill here, so I think it might be most ideal fora happy hour or... More

Really nice decor/atmosphere attractive to American and on one occasion a huge table of young Spanish women dressed to kill. And with good reason, since the food is excellent. The same can be said of La Tasca downtown, but this one is much more spread out. I good thing generally, but service was a little slow due to the table... More

I went here with a few friends. Parking is a pain in the area. I figured this would be the case. There is a parking garage right across the street, we went right in there. The service started off to a slow start, but as we progressed it got much better. We started with the Mango, Blackberry sangria as we... More

Took my Sister to La Tasca for the first time. We did not wait to be seated, but after fifteen minutes a server had not taken our drink orders. All of the servers were standing around talking to each other. We also noticed a family of six waiting to be seated and they sat them behind a door on the... More

I love tapas and was super excited to try La Tasca. I didn't give it a poor because our friend liked his paella, but my husband and I had empanadas which were greasy and the fillings really were bland. If you order enough for a meal it gets pricey. The atmosphere is OK but maybe they are trying to hard... More

Good portions for Tapas. They advise ordering three per person. We ordered two per person and had enough to eat. Salmon bread was fabulous. For dessert, the chocolate truffle with vanilla ice cream was decadent. Better selection of beers would be nice.

The tapa theme is nice but beware. Portions are small but filling. I have to say the kale salad was the best. I would make sure the lamb chops are cooked thoroughly before eating it. Mine was not so I returned it. The calamari and beans are also good. The cava sangria is amazing. I would say in conclusion food... More

You must try the mango blackberry sangria, it is amazing. Can't beat the happy hour prices. The only catch is happy hour is at the bar only and it can get pretty crowded. But worth it
