The tapas were good overall
The tapas were good overall however there were definitely some standouts. The beef tenderloin with caramelized onions and the shrimp and mushroom paella were amazing. Definitely will go back.

We went here for a new restaurant. We found the wait staff helpful when ordering. The bacon wrapped dates were excellent. The grilled calamari was good. I would recommend this to anybody wanting to try tapas.

I found that during midweek dinner it was very quiet, the ambient music was very good selection for a romantic dinner, not too loud. The food is superior quality. Service is good, food is prompt. Tapas are usually small portions, these portions are a lot larger than the norm. Great neighborhood restaurant.

Great food- I recommend the
Great food- I recommend the empenadas, pinchos, patatas bravas, ceviche, meatballs, and chorizo stuffed dates. Great for a date if yourd both adventurous and would be fun for a group too. Drinks could be just a bit stronger though.

Julie was our server and she
Julie was our server and she was great, food was all good although some portions such as dates and eggplant could have had more food. Food came out quickly but almost too quickly to relax. We were not rushed but could have been a little more spaced out.

Best paella I've ever had...
We went there on Friday night and there was a live music performance in the restaurant. Loved it.
However, the most memorable experience for us was the black paella (La paella negra). I think it was the best paella I've had ever had. The rice was soft and the everything was just.. right.

Great for a meet up with friends
Went to La Taberna for the first time this week. A group of us met there to have a small meal before an event nearby & it turned out perfect! The food was wonderful and the service was too - they were very attentive to the fact that we were on a schedule and made sure our food/drinks and check were out on time without lacking any quality. We will definitely return!

I was very impressed with food quality. Will return.

Nice neighborhood spot
This is a very nice neighborhood spot. I went for the 1st time last weekend and the food was good. The Paellas was very nice. Next time we will try the outside dinning.

The 2 piece band was wonderful
The 2 piece band was wonderful and the al fresco dining on the patio was divine. I will definitely will be coming back.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went there on a Saturday and it was great. The cava sangria was outstanding as well as all the tapas we had. I would recommend the empanadas, flat bread, mussels, and bacon wrapped dates. The band Jugo de Mango was playing and they were very good. The wait staff was very helpful and on top of our orders and clean up. It was an excellent dining experience.

Happy return customer
Food is great, my neighborhood place. I just don't understand how is it possible that food is served before drinks.
7/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Owner and staff are very friendly and they want the best for their customers

I joined a freind for an early dinner and found La Taberna Tapas to be a beautiful restauant with a huge menu of tapas and dinner entres. We shared a flatbread as an appatizer and this was perfect with a glass of wine.
We shared a few hot tapas (I loved the chicken and potato tapas) and we both had a pieaya dish with plenty to take home. The Pieaya was so tasy - the only other place I have had pieaya that tasty was in Miami.
The location is very easy to get to and parking is also easy - on the street or a public garage is very close by.
I will definitely go back and this would be a wonderful place for a group party .

As always, food and service
As always, food and service was excellent. We did not get to the restaurant until after 10 p.m. They never rushed us and told us to take our time!! This is my favorite tapas restaurant!!

Better than I expected
The food, service and sangria were excellent! The only thing the place was missing was people. I don't know why the place was not more crowded. I would recommend going. I loved the traditional sangria and the paella.

Delicous Paella and Pato
I really liked that I can get one person's worth of Paella and share it with my table. I've been to places where they charge Paella/person and if one person gets paella, the whole table has to get paella. That wasn't the case and the Paella was delicious. The Pato was also exceptional. I don't know how they manage to make duck taste like beef/bison; but it was really delicious.

This is my and my husband's favorite restaurant!! Awesome food and great service!!

Gem on Halstead
The 7 tapas for $40 deal on Tuesday night is a great deal.
The food here is always excellent - their tortilla espanola is excellent and the chipotle aioli sauce they serve with the croquettas is out of this world, We always have the same server and she is very nice and attentive.

We had a group of about 20 people and everyone had a great time! The food was great and the service was great. Attentive staff and we are excited to dine there again! Hands down my favorite tapas restaurant in the city!
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food, service was good but a bit inattentive. The live Flamenco was outstanding. A thoroughly enjoyable evening. I will definitely go back.

Went to La Taberna on a Wednesday night with a group of 8 for my birthday and we had a great time! Everyone loved the food and sangria and the price was reasonable considering the amount that we ordered. Also, I forgot my coat and they were kind enough to hold it for me until the next day when I could come back and pick it up. Will definitely be back here again soon :)

Tasty tapas, no crowd
The food and drinks were excellent overall, and the menu was quite extensive. The waitstaff was very attentive. This is going to become our go-to tapas place since you don't have to fight the crowds like you do at a lot of the downtown and northside tapas places. The ambiance was nice. They had live music (guy playing classical guitar). The only downside was the couple a table ove who brought a small baby that fussed for half of our dinner

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch. Good service and delectable food. Small plates...my fav! Patatas Bravas on the house!

Great live music
The live entertainment was awesome. Really added to the experience. Only tapas place in the area with live music on Saturday night that I could find. Food and service were solid but watch out for the caramelized dates wrapped in bacon,yuck. Would like to talk to chef about this bad combo. I guess, not everything tastes good with bacon.

Great Birthday Dinner With My Wife
My wife and I ate here on 11/23/2013 and absolutely loved it. The food was great and came it quick. We literally loved every dish we had. We ordered several tapas plates and each one seemed to come out just as we were finishing the first. We both enjoyed the white sangria as well. Atmosphere was great, and we really enjoyed to two musicians. We'll be back.
