My first colombian restaurant and it was a nice discovery. Food is really delicious, service is friendly and professional. I taste new things like yuka and banane plantain and all was so delicious. The Cheesecake as a dessert was awesome The sweet red wine was also a nice discovery

This was a perfect example of great food spoiled by poor service. We had reservations for 7 on 12/26 for 6:30 pm and called and moved them up to 5:30, luckily. We arrived and it took someone awhile to greet us. We finally got seated and the service was sporadic at best. As the place filled up more and more... More

We went 2 days in a row. Loved the lunch specials, especially the price. Ordered beef and cheese empanadas for appetizers. I liked the cheese better. Tried shrimp, sancocho, pork chops, and entrana lunch specials. They were all delicious, and good size servings. The plantain in the aborrajado wasn't completely ripe and it had very little guava in the middle.... More

Got the skirt steak combo and awesome food. Lots of food and couldn't finish it all. Service was great. Dining was a bit loud so not a place for a quiet dinner

This is a great restaurant if you want a nice latino colombian. You might want to have time to spare because it takes a while for the food. All in all it is a good restaurant with a nice atmosphere.

The location is great with a gorgeous looking church around the corner and different restaurant but parking can be a challenge. We went in for brunch, April 3, very early so we've park in front of the restaurant. The restaurant is small and with packed tables and chairs, I can't imagine a space for them to dance without bumping to... More

Las Tablas has been around for a number of years, and this is an indication of its popularity in the neighborhood. Good, dependable food with good service at affordable prices. Portions are large. The emphasis is on dishes from South America, especially Colombia. The decor is pleasant and comfortable especially for family and friends get-togethers.

Not good. The lunch we orderd was not a really Colombian Ajiaco. Just a poor soup with two pieces of corn not even with chiken
