Great spot for either happy
Great spot for either happy hour, small-medium size groups. We had an anniversary dinner that was lovely. Highlights of our meal were the fried eggplant (cheese dipping sauce was fabulous), clams,shrimp, and artichokes rendolent with garlic, paellas are worth the wait. Excellent list of Spanish wines, regular wine list at reasonable prices, specials a great value. Decor very reminiscent of Spain.

The food was good but it was hard to tell who ordered what. The food servers were not our waiter and were not sure what each dish was or were unable to articulate what the dishes were. The Sangria was very good.

Authentic Spanish cuisine
La Tasca had a special in April for "The Food of Spain" - excellent selection of the regional specialties from Spain. We have not tried items from the regular menu. Will go back again to try theregular selections.

Fantastic as always! I love the fried eggplant, tomato medley, empanadas, and many others. I've liked every dish we've ordered here. Can't wait to go back!

La Tasca is Terrifc
The food was great. Tapas is ideal for haring and my friend and I shared all of our 5 dishes. The rockfish and salmon were cooked perfectly. The salad was fresh. The egglant and cheese sause were delicious.

1st time good experience
My wife and I just moved to Rockville and were happy to fine a good Tapas restaurant. We had an excellent waiter. The items that we selected were all very good. I also like their wine list. The basic list has some good choices that are in the high 30's price range and the mark-up is less than 1x retail which is outstanding. I would recommend La Tasca and look forward to going back soon.

La Tasca always delivers excellent food at a reasonable price. Nice patio seating, not quiet but not overly loud, and nice, polite and attentive waitstaff. I loved that they would let me reserve a part of the lounge to accommodate our group. Happy hour is a must as the sangria (very good btw) gets pretty pricy ($14 for a pitcher during HH vs $28 otherwise).
Very good all around, we'll definitely be back soon.

a fun evening
While I think this place is overpriced, we had a very nice evening. The food was good -- not fabulous, but fine.

Group Service (small versus large)
wonderful experience for celebrating my birthday. only recommendation would be not having one waiter serving two large parties at the same time. I understand the waiter is experieince and may be able to handle the situation; however, it makes the situation and evening difficult on all parties involve when the service goes in a declining motion.

My daughter loves all things Spanish and requested that her family graduation celebration be at La Tasca. Our waiter was over the top helpful and took care to explain things to our guests that had never experienced tapas, etc. before. The ambiance was great. The music from Rockville Square was too loud for good conversation, especially for our more "mature" guests.

This was an early birthday celebration for a dear friend and my first time dining here. Great place and our waiter was awesome. The food was very good as well would definitely return.

Very nice Tapas place!
My wife and I love Tapas dining, it is so much more interesting than getting a big plate of two things and stuffing yourself on it, no matter how good it is.
We had quite a variety of items, cheese platter, garlic shrimp, chicken skewers on a polenta-like sauce, salmon on spinach, chorizo sausage, a vegetable risotto, and pear almond torte with sherry ice cream for dessert. The food was all wonderful and we would highly recommend this restaurant. Our only minor nit to pick was the chicken and salmon were just a bit overcooked. Not ridiculously so, but both were just a tad drier than they needed to be. Had they not been we'd have given the food a solid 5-stars. Go there!

We had our anniversary dinner at La Tasca. It was fun picking different foods to try and share. While the waiter was attentive to ordering, our drinks were not refreshed, and we could not find the waiter to pay the bill. He seemed to be very busy and the only one working the outside.
Food was excellent and we would definitely go again.

I took my 95-year-old mom and two of my own friends visiting from out of town for Sunday lunch. Between the four of us we sampled a large variety of tapas and then plunged for dessert. Everything was attractively presented and tasty, a wonderful way to spend a good chunk of the afternoon.

Out of Town Guests
Our family entertained guest we had not seen in too many years. We were a party of 9 so we ordered from the party menu. There was so much food we had to cancel the desserts platter. The food was fresh and flavorful. The traditional sangria is still the best. I celebrated my birthday her two weeks ago and had a wonderful meal. too.

Fun place with decent food
Went to La Tasca because of its location next to the music pavilion on the square. There was a blues concert the night we went. The food was fair but drinks were good. Service was excellent.

Fun and accomodating
We routinely go to La Tasca and enjoy the outside seating. In great weather they can also open their floor to ceiling windows. The tasting menu is a good way to try things, now we have our favorites and order those. The calamari, the scallops and shrimp, the empanadas and salads are all good. On Friday nights in the summer the live music is right off their patio. Great fun and we highly recommend.

This was the first "date" for my wife and I since our baby was born. We both were extremely excited about this dinner as we have eaten at the downtown location many times.
It was a Saturday night. We originally wanted to sit inside. It was very cold in the dining room. We asked to be reseated in another area. The hostess seemed to only want to seat us at a two-seater. We ended up going outside. We had to insist on a larger table as the hostess again, tried to put us at a small table. The problem I have with this is that this is a Tapas restaurant. You order many plates. Even two people need extra room for all of those lovely dishes. Management should rethink how the hosts/hostesses are trained.

Love La Tasca
The only problem I have with La Tasca is that I can not find a way to eat everything on the menu! There is nothing bad and everything is great!!

Sitting outside in the summer!
A great place to sit outside on a nice summer evening while listening to music and people watching. The food is excellent and the sangria is great!

The food was amazing! I will
The food was amazing! I will go there again for sure. But the service was just ok. The waiter didn't come by as much as I would have liked.

Always love coming here!
Had a night out with friends/double date. Everything was really good but we left a little earlier than we planned just because the music became outrageously loud (even after a 3rd pitcher of sangria). Nevertheless, we had a great time :)

Tuesday night gathering with group of friends was perfect - not so crowded, lots-of-food, be careful what you ask for. Thanks for a good evening.

Normally, I don't like Hispanic food, but this place changed my mind. I now realize that there is more than just tacos and burritos. I loved the idea of tapas so you don't over eat. They had a really good deal where you could get two movie tickets with your meal so we def sprung for that as well. My favorite part was the raspberry creme brulee for dessert. Our waiter made a few mistakes, but he was super nice and fixed everything right away so it didn't bother us at all.

They recently changed their menu. I prefer the previous menu, although there were still plenty of items to choose from.
Food is excellent.

New menu contained nice surprises
La Tasca is a wonderful tapas place with plenty of variety and a nice wine selection. It was a little noisy on Saturday night, but the food was delicious and the service professional. Recommended.

2nd time here, came for our 8 year anniversary , had a wonderful live band , which played all the salsa hits. Going back soon !!!

I have gone to just about every LaTasca location in Northern Virginia, DC and now Rockville. I am never disappointed with the food and the service. Great selection of delicious tapas, paella and sangria. Always a first pick for me and my fiance.

Best in Town Center
After two visits to each of several restaurants in Rockville's Town Center, this is the only one which I plan to frequent. All of the six dishes that I have tried on those visits have been very good, especially the sauteed shrimp. The service has been attentive an friendly without being intrusive. The ambiance is surprisingly warm for the size of the restaurant. The wine list, while small, is well chosen and reasonably priced.

I absolutely love the food and menu. Great service and sangria.
