“Great Neighborhood Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

Excellent food and service. Food is outside of the traditional Spanish dishes floating in pimenton. Here the Chef is sophisticated enough to serve innovative plates in addition to the traditional Spanish dishes. Good tapas also.

“It would have been 5 stars if...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

Vasca is a Spanish restaurant with good food (especially the langostinos) and great service...except for this obnoxious owner/chef/waiter? walking around in a white chef's jacket, who constantly pushes you with his ideas for food and drink, instead of letting us look at the menu in peace!! He also got into an argument with the Maitre'D in full view of the guests. This guy needs to learn about being a host. We will not go back.

“Authentic Spanish food and tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

This is a very nice restaurant. Food is very very authentic and the chef and owner comes around to your table and makes sure everything is tasty and as ordered. Atmosphere is very very nice with a certain touch of elegance but not stuffy and service is very very good. They have valet parking and it is very easy to find.

“Fine dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

A place to dine in a good atmosphere. The menu is nicely varied, serving Spanish dishes and international cuisine. Tasty paella and appetizers. They offer dishes made with exotic meats! Gaspar, the Chef and Owner, itself explains the special options and take your order.

Should try!!
