This is a great restaurant near UIC! If you are visiting UIC for a sporting event, I would definitely recommend you stop in. The food was excellent and the flight of sangria is fun to try. The bar area also looked like a nice place to just sit back and relax. We were there on a Friday night and the... More

After an event at the UIC Forum (Halsted and Roosevelt) we took a short walk down Halsted in search of a place to eat for our group of six. We got lucky by finding this restaurant. They have indoor and outdoor seating, a nice bar and friendly service. The food was fantastic! We had a mix of hot and cold... More

We ate here as a family after a swim meet at UIC. I loved the decor and atmosphere. We loved the tortilla espanola. The paellas were pretty good. The croquettes were also good. Overall, a nice night out for tapas.

Excellent selection is tapas, good sangria & beer. The service and atmosphere were excellent as well. We will be back. Only downer was that we were ticketed because we did not know to buy a meter pass on the street.

My wife and I took her parents to La Taberna and were very impressed with the seasonal sangria offerings and the different tapas. The flatbreads were amazing along with the goat cheese and cod fritters. We also ordered two different paellas and were disappointed in the quality. The rabbit and chicken paella had little bone shards throughout the pan and... More

I was not expecting much from this restaurant, not sure why. I recently visited for a friend's birthday and was pleasently surprised by the tapas dishes. I ordered the beef skewer and scallops, along with the churro dessert. I was a huge fan of the skewer, loved the scallops, but didn't care for the churros as much as I thought... More

I live in area, had passed this place hundreds of times and this place blends in with other restaurants. I have another favorite Spanish restaurant so did not bother trying this place, but some friends recommended this place and I was wowed! Why, first, very flavorful food, good service, great decor, not too loud, never too busy for long waits... More
