“Great Tapas”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Four of us had tapas at La Tasca. The waiter was attentive and offered good suggestions to our list of tapas. Each of our tapa selections was delicious and each dish was easily divided into four mini-portions. We ordered a liter of the sangria which came with a lot of fruit. We ate the fruit which had settled to the bottom of our glass and it was a way of cleansing your palate at the end of the meal. The entire evening was a wonderful experience and I would definitely recommend La Tasca.

“Great Sangria Brunch!”
Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

We went to La Tasca on a dreary grey day and the food and sangria brightened our mood! We loved the tapas. The atmosphere was great. We sat by the window watching people walking past and really enjoyed our time. I would definitely come back!

“Delicious tapas”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

This was my first introduction to tapas and now I'm spoiled. No other tapas restaurant I've tried has measured up. The selection was great and the dishes were heavenly. Getting to have small portions of several different items is my favorite kind of meal. So glad that La Tasca's prices made such an experience so affordable.

“Always reliable”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Had a window seat, which was great for people watching. The tapas are always good and reliable. Definitely not an inexpensive date for two but worth it, it is the kind of place where you feel like you can linger and talk and eat.
