“Good food and Atmosphere”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

If you want to sample a lot of dishes this is the place. The dishes are small so be prepared to order at least two dishes if your hungry. The good thing is if your with a group you can all buy so many dishes at appetizer prices and sample everything. Large variety of Sangrias by the pitcher if you like wine. They have a live band once a week too. Overall good experiences here.

“Love it!”
Reviewed November 4, 2013 via mobile

This was second trip to La Tasca and it was just as amazing as the first time. The beef empanadas are so fantastic. Granted they're fried dough so they fill you up but I have trouble ordering anything but these. The bacon wrapped scallops and shrimp and worth the trip alone! Don't listen to the negative comments. Most of us haven't been to Spain or lived there so no we don't know what "true" tapas means but that doesn't make La Tasca any less amazing. Great service, tasty food, good prices, and a drool-worthy sangria menu! I will stop here every time I visit to DC!

“Good, small portions at a really noisy restaurant”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

This isn't a good restaurant if you want to talk to the person you're eating with (and actually hear what he or she is saying). It's a great bar for the young professional crowd, you it's really noisy and none of the tables are situated far enough from the bar to rectify that. It's good food, but the noise is just overwhelming.

“best paella I've had”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

I'm a great fan of Spanish food and I've tried my fair share of paellas. We went to this restaurants on 2 consecutive nights because the seafood paella they make is so good and also they have a lovely vibrant atmosphere. The restaurant is located in Chinatown and their paellas (which feed 2-3 people each) only cost $40. They also have a wide selection of desserts. Service was ordinary.
