Did the fixed price menu. Plenty of food! Pasta was fresh and amazing. Main courses of duck and fish were perfection. Nice atmosphere. Lively but not too loud - had a great conversation with friends.

This restaurant is tops. It was my second visit and definitely won't be the last even though it is an hour and a half from my home. Our party of five received great service even though the restaurant had a large party ahead of us. The food is absolutely exquisite, from the appetizer to the pasta to the entree to... More

We visited Tabla for an early before the theater meal. You can order ala carte, but can also choose a three course meal for $35. You get to pick each course from the regular menu-one salad/appetizer, one pasta, one meat/fish. The Tajarin with truffle butter and parmigiano reggiano is to die for. Everything we had was very good.

We chose Tabla's private dining room to host our parents dinner in the days leading up to our wedding. We could not have been more pleased with the space! It is intimate, quiet, beautifully decorated and perfectly sized for the number of people it can accommodate (up to 12). Rather than charge a fee for the room use there is... More

Recently had dinner here again (for the upteenth time) before a play. . . a delightful experience as always. Located on 28th before 28th was cool, this restaurant is a go-to for me and my friends. We love sitting on the tall stools in the back so we can watch the cooks. I always order the pris fix - salad,... More

First of all, no charge for the private dining room, that was pretty baller. Then 35 dollar 3 course meal, which was amazing, also great house cocktails. Service was... More

I have only good things to say about Tabla. My husband and I ate dinner there on Saturday evening just before the 5 - 6 PM Happy Hour ended. We opened with two glasses of bubbly Prosecco, followed by an appetizer of Crostini made 5 ways. It was hard to pick a favorite, from the lovely fresh beet puree to... More

Homemade pastas rule here ... don't miss the Tajarin, which I found to be as good as you'd enjoy in Piemonte. Fun, lively atmosphere, good friendly service and a solid menu make the dining experience better than most places. Food is fairly priced; portions are reasonable. Great for an 'everyday' dinner out as well as a special occasion. I'll be... More
