I went to Casa Vasca with a group of friends because all of us wanted authentic Spanish food, and we were not disappointed.

We shared two appetizers, calamari and chorizo, and two entrees, seafood paella and seafood / chorizo paella. The portions were large enough that this was enough to feed five people.

The quality of the food was excellent - perfectly seasoned, and served piping hot.

For dessert, I had a chocolate cake. My cake had two layers, one layer of cake, and one layer of chocolate cheesecake, and was delicious.

Most of the people at the restaurant appeared to be neighborhood residents - the locals know where to find great food!

I have been eating at this restaurant for over 15 years and each visit is just as great as the next. I have always enjoyed the entire experience each time. The staff is very welcoming and most importantly attentive to everything. The food is outstanding-right out of an authentic Spanish kitchen. The portions are oversized, so bring your appetite. You will not be disappointed.

Great food and price. Only downside is the restaurant is too small and always feels like you are too close to the restroom no matter where you sit.

Overall, the food was decent although it is definitely not fine dining
- frozen vegetables and canned marinara sauce. We arrived at 7:45 for an 8 PM reservation. They lost our reservation and did not offer us a hint of an appology. An appology and an ETA of when we would be seated
would have gone a long way. We waited over an hour to be seated for them to put us at the worst table in the house - next to the bar pass through. The swinging door hit me in the head several times during dinner. Food was nothing special, but plentiful. Service was below average. Benefits are its inexpensive and has a parking lot.
