    The food at La Tasca is excellent; we enjoyed it greatly. However, the service left much to be desired. The waitress basically ignored us most of the time. It was as though she resented our being there. We would go back if we had different service.

    Overall, our experience here was pretty good, and I would be up for trying the restaurant again. Out of about 7 tapas that we ordered, 5 were really good. I would NOT recommend the meatballs; they were extremely dry and difficult to chew. The view of the harbor was great, and our server was very nice and attentive.

    First off, the setting facing the Inner Harbor was great, so I thought it would be nice. Then it took forever for a waiter to come over and take our drink order and then get them out to us. He was not very knowledgeable about the menu and when asked about the gluten free options said that they were and then after multiple times of asking he finally found out that what they say is gluten free really is not! Only partial, so beware! The food was ok- nothing stupendous at all. Won't be going back.

    It was our first time dining at La Tasca and went based on the recommendation of a friend. Thankfully we had reservations because there was a line at the door. The food came out quickly and was delicious. Our waiter was very attentive and was able to make recommendations and they were all spot on. There wasn't anything that we didn't like! We will most definitely be back!

    A great place to try some different flavors. With tapas ("small plates") you get to try many dishes, instead of having to decide on one entree. With a group of people sharing, you can have even more selections! Each dish we tried looked beautiful and tasted wonderful. Several different sangrias are also available, and delicious. Service was excellent, food came out quickly. Only small criticism: the place is pretty noisy! But a great, fun place to look out over the Inner Harbor.

    I really like La Tasca because of the location on the harbor and because of the atmosphere. It doesn't feel like I've walked into a restaurant that is trying to be authentic. It still has the feel of a traditional style Tapas restaurant.

    Overall La Tasca is a wonderful restaurant. I dined there alone for lunch then two days later with a group of 7. Both occasions were excellent. The food might be overpriced a little, but it is delicious! Don't miss the sangria, but the wine list is also impressive.

    Dined on 3/9/2014
    The food offerings on the menu were quite diverse and we had a tough time making our choices because we wanted to order all of the small plates. The restaurant was quiet inside where we sat but had quite a few tables filled outside, presumably because this was one of the first days with good weather in quite some time. The place has great views of the harbor and is not priced like it does which is a really nice bonus. The only downside was that because we were one of the few tables inside, we did not receive as much attention as perhaps some of the tables outside did but I would say all that got in the way of was ordering another set of drinks. Otherwise, the servers had a great attitude and were a pleasure to talk to!

    La Tasca does have a great tapas concept, however the delicious items offered are not prepared well,. They reminded me of the quality of food at Denny's. This is the second time I've been there and we will not be going back due to poor quality of food. The server was also not sure of the menu or times of specials being offered.

    Loved this restaurant, will definitely be going back, even if I have to pay full price. We had a table right on the harbor - it was a beautiful view. And every tapa was delicious, I went with two friends and we couldn't decide who ordered the best meal. And the raspberry creme dessert? Too good!

    but very generous servings with delicious authentic Spanish flavors like real jamon serrano and manchego cheese. All dishes can be shared for an even more delightful taste experience. The special Restaurant Week menu offered a choice of 3 dishes per person plus desert, more than enough food for one person. Drinks are always extra. The restaurant has a full bar. It overlooks the Inner Harbor, a lovely view day or night. One or two small plates make a great lunch.

    We love La Tasca and have been to multiple La Tasca locations. The food here was by far the best we've had, but the ambience left something to be desired for me. The restaurant is extremely small, but has a gorgeous view. At least half of the tables are right near the kitchen doors, so it makes for a not-so-great experience. That being said, the waiter and manager were both extremely helpful when we had questions about promotions, food, etc.

    My very best friend and I just visited La Tasca this past weekend. All I can say is wow! We had a nice variety of tapas; from chicken to seafood to sausage to pork to many different veggies, they all were fantastic. The pitcher mango blackberry sangria was finished quickly, as it was delicious as well. The place was pretty empty, leaving us with a peaceful atmosphere, and the staff was very courteous and friendly. Will definitely go again!

    We arrived and we were immediately seated at a window table overlooking the Inner Harbor. The service was great and the food delicious. The varieties of sangria are amazing but we selected the Blackberry Mango, which was delicious. There were two of us and each tapas plate contained an enormous amount of food and each dish was better than the last. We had a hard time selecting from the vast menu. All in all, a great evening out.

    I took my wife and our 4 yr old kiddo to this place this weekend. We loved everything this restaurant offered that night. I lived in Andalucia Provice, Spain for 7 months and also visited Madrid & Barcelona several times. Foods were American-Spanish fusion but definitely could taste and feel Spain, especially when you look outside their window towards the harbor. Enough said, we highly recommend this place. You won't get disappointed. Try now.

    We had a wonderful time at La Tasca on New Year's Eve. After all-you-can-eat tapas from a nice selection of choices, wine, and desert, we were entertained by two female Flamenco dancers. Our waitress was very attentive, friendly, and nice to talk to. At midnight we each received a small bag with 12 grapes for each month of the new year, to be consumed in the last minutes before midnight, along with a glass of champagne. We celebrated the incoming new year with the rest of the folks at the Inner Harbor by standing on the balcony, right outside the restaurant, which has a terrific view on the replica U.S. Constellation and the harbor. All in all it was a New Year's to remember. Thank you, La Tasca, Baltimore!

    The restaurant is perfectly located in the inner harbor and allows you to people watch while eating at your own pace. Delicious portions of tapas is served and the soups are amazing. It is a delightful way to spend an afternoon or early evening. We have had dinner there also in the past and enjoyed our meal as well. We will be back to the restaurant again soon.
