The Restaurant has a very attractive interior. Everyone is attentive, pleasant, eager to please and make you feel welcome. Sea food Paella and sopa marinera en salsa verde are very delicious, and tapas the best in New york Im not saying any exaggeration and Sangria is the best! We loved what we ordered and look forward to going back soon... More

I decided to give this place a try because of other yelpers. I ordered the sopa Catalana, veggies with pork. The temperature was perfect because I appreciate my soup hot. There were no salt abs pepper shakers on the table, which I could've used for the soup, but overall, it was good. I also ordered the Serrano ham for my... More

Broadway in Astoria has many ethnic restaurants, this is one of the better ones. Authentic Spanish food and wine at reasonable prices, good atmosphere, friendly staff Potions are generous and the tapas menu nicely varied. Will return again when in the are All!

between my doctor appointments, I docked into La Rioja to grab a bite for myself and my daughter. I was immediate impressed with the greeting I received from the guy working the bar. The owner( assumption) was friendly and even let me charge my phone while we ate. My daughter got into a few things even ran down the aisle... More

Great service, excellent location and the food Delicious and very well cooked. I strongly recommend this place. If you are near NY the trip to Astoria, Queens, NY is very worthy!

My wife and I are New Yorkers and extensive travelers, which has included Italy & Spain, so we like to think of that we have experienced palates and thus our ratings are very reliable. That being said we give La Rioja 5 stars because it is truly authentic, carefully prepared, and delicious Spanish food (Tapas & other). Also, the sangria... More

This place is great and I come here often, whether it's for a glass of Rioja, tapas, dinner or to get a plate of freshly shaved, imported Jamón Ibérico. Alex, the manager, is a professional Cortador de Jamón and will shave the ham table-side for you. I've also had the Entraña, Paella classica and the Paella negra which are all... More

This restaurant was better before, the tapas were great, but I recently re-visited and my friend and I got really disappointed because of the sizes of the plates and the the paella was greasy and more rice than meet. Hopefully it was only a bad day at the kitchen, but I don't think I will return.

Had a reunion with old time friends after so many years, we haven't seen each other for at least 16 years. Met at the restaurant at 6pm. The place started pretty quiet but got so busy at 9pm. They had to move our group of seven guests to another section in the middle of the restaurant because a huge group... More
