A real neighborhood gem!!!
An institution, a place where you can taste and enjoy real food. No gimmick of using high sounding food description.

May Day B-day Celebration
Celebrated my birthday with 9 friends and had an absolutely wonderful time. The food and sangria was delicious! All my friends raved about the tapas and their entrees and agreed this place is a keeper. The only issue we had was the spotty service. Our waiter was a very nice young man, but in his zeal to place the paella orders becauase of the amount of time it takes to prepare them, he didn't take the entree orders for the other half of our table, so our entrees were staggered and he skipped over one friend entirely. Her food arrived when the rest of the table was ready for dessert and coffee. But again, despite this hiccup, we will all come back again. Thank you.

Special Spanish Spot
This restaurant was the perfect place to celebrate our family birthday celebration. Our group of 12 was easily and comfortably accommodated. The delicious tapas and paella were perfect for sharing. Service and staff were friendly and helpful. Food tasted fresh and not overly salty (like so many other restaurants). The staff surprised us with a birthday candle in one of the yummy desserts.

Paella valenciana and arroz nigro for 4 people, a selection of tapas, and desserts.... Excellent on all accounts. I'd recommend this place especially for the food. Service was attentive and the ambiance is good, the music was just at the right volume to enjoy while still being able to have a conversation . This was my second time here and certainly will come in the future.

We had just come back from vacation in Spain and wanted to go for authentic tapas. This was the place. Very hard to find good octopus done as in Galicia, with steamed potato and paprika. It was so tender. All the other tapas were just as good. Sangria very very nice. Try it, you'll be back. Also went to their sister restaurants, all very nice, all with authentic paellas as well!!!

Spain dining at it's finest!
Great selection of food. Dined for an anniversary and the atmosphere was great. Waiter was on top of his game and was very well spoken and professional. La Nacional will be a place my family attend a few times a year.

Authentic Tapas Restaurant
The food was delicious. Almost all of our small plates came out at once, which I don't prefer, but we didn't ask for them to be staggered either. There's an open kitchen in the middle, so you know its clean, but it gets a bit warm in the restaurant. The place had a very authentic feel. I'd definitely recommend it.
