“Tasty Tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We attended group dinner for a friend's birthday here. Hubby got the seafood paella (HUGE portion, meant for 2-3 people) and ate it for the next couple of days. I had the patatas bravas and meloso de verduras -- both were delicious and satisfying little plates. I would definitely return to try additional dishes. Service was a little slow even though the restaurant was not busy at all. We were there during Happy Hour, so we got a great value.

“Good for a meetup”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

My husband and I met his brother there for drinks. Its great - the portions have gotten smaller and drinks are okay. Its really loud on a Friday night. Be prepared to spend some cash as pitchers are $20 and you're probrably going to order at least three plates of food at $5 to $7 each.

“Really nice spot for a relaxed lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

We were looking for a relaxed spot for a leisurely lunch and La Tasca fit the bill! The tapas menu was very good, with a great variety of choices. The four of us shared 12 superbly created dishes. The combination of options, portions and pricing was ideal. Since we had our dog with us, we opted to sit outside (love that they are pet friendly), but I encourage every visitor to check out the interior - it's a beautifully designed restaurant.

“Slow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

While the food is good, our reservation was cancelled, apparently because nobody answered the call they placed to the person that made the reservation. They didn't leave a message either. This is not a good practice. Most restaurants that want a verbal confirmation will leave a message the day before, or at least early on the day of the reservation.

“Good Tapas on Budget”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

I've now visited La Tapas several times over the last few years and have enjoyed each visit. I enjoy their broad menu which, for DC and tapas prices, can be very reasonable, especially their all you can eat for $20 deal during lunch time. I cannot speculate on the authenticity, but everything I've had here was good and I will return for more.
