While there were people out the door the host staff handled the situation very well. It's always an easy way to judge a restaurant when we are traveling - that it looks as though there a lot of people in the place having a good time. This was the case at Tasca.

I planned one month in advance a birthday party of 21 people, which ended up being 15. They told us as soon as we walked in that we would be sitting at two separate tables. We were not told that this would be a possibility on a Saturday night. If they were honest, we would have made other arrangements. They... More

Tasca is, by far, my favorite restaurant in the area. Consider first the food: Tapas style dishes allow you to try several different smaller menu items, allowing you to satiate a desire for several different types of food all at once. In a sitting you can go from goat cheese fritters to well seasoned crab cakes with salsa to braised... More

I went to Tasca with my extended family and had a great evening. Tasca has a wide variety of tapas for nearly every taste. My family likes all different flavors but after ordering between 6-8 different kinds we were all full and happy! Great value, great atmosphere. Top two recommendations, pitcher of sangria and the black bean crab cakes!

Good food, great atmosphere, i've actually been here a few times. Not a ton of options for vegetarians but the options they have are very tasty.

Immediately when you walk in you are transported to the athmosphere of one of those wonderful romantic restaurants in Granada. The food is tasty and great value, service always friendly and the sangria fruity with a little kick. Great choice of tapas but for me the filet mignon (under $20) with all the trimmings is the best value in Boston.
