We went here on a Saturday afternoon at around 1:30 and the place was deserted. The paella of mariscos was fantastic, the Catalana sangria delicious but the pulpo a la plancha was more potatoes than octopus. But it's nice friendly service and worth the prices!

My experience was excellent at this restaurant. Our waitress was from Lithuania, great service. We ordered paella, it was excellent, not too hot on the pepper. Serving are big, my friend and I were not able to eat everything. If you are by yourself, by all means, order a serving for one. It's not a cheap place but it won't... More

I don't know how long this place has been open, but I can't believe I hadn't taken notice of it before. It's easy to drive by without seeing it, but believe me you don't want to do that. This place is a must stop! The space is very elegantly furnished, great decor and vibrant colors. Great place for a date... More

Pretty good tapas, we specially liked the queso de cabra con miel, fried goat cheese , and the scallops. The meatballs were ok, sauces were good. They had good drinks as well!

Went here for a Business Lunch and had the $12 special that included a complimentary appetizer, two choices off the menu AND dessert. The portions were unexpectedly BIG and overall very good. I had the salad (Ensalada Primavera) and the Chicken breast (on skewers like a shish-ka-bob) others had the soup (home-made from scratch), the Spanish meatballs - excellently flavored... More

This was my second visit to this restaurant. As other reviews noted, the servings are small and a bit pricey, but that is not uncommon for a tapas place. I have eaten tapas at many restaurants in the City and suburbs, as well in southern Spain. This place can match the best of tapas, including in Seville. The cerveza selection... More

My husband and I came to la tabernas for dinner on 12/6/14. We thought the food was very good. We realize it is a tapas restaurant, but felt the portion sizes were small compared to other tapas restaurants we have eaten at. The curry chicken, and the filet with onions were our two favorites. We also had the red house... More
