First, our server was super nice and made good recommendations. Service in the restaurant, however, seemed disorganized, and they weren’t staffed for the kind of service they seem to want to provide. I noticed that the hostess running the door and waitlist was also bussing tables, pouring water and coffee. Both hosting and bussing are big enough jobs that a restaurant that size wants dedicated staff for both things. Communication also seemed like an issue — called to change our reservation this afternoon, but that change wasn’t communicated which resulted in a long wait before we were seated (and a comped glass of wine for my trouble which was nice). But it looked like we weren’t the only ones at the door running into problems. Once seated, we were served food without napkins and silverware. Had to ask two different staff for those things.

It’s a beautiful restaurant, though, and the band was great. Like I said, our server was really nice. Food was pretty good/great, with the pork belly tacos and the goat cheese and prosciutto honey toasts being the highlights. This restaurant would be outstanding if they could dial in their floor game.

Farron was the person helping us Friday night as they were short staffed. She was extremely helpful and provided us with outstanding service. My husband and I had a fun, wonderful date night... thanks to the wonderful live music, the food and wine, and the service.

A piece of heaven in Lubbock. I only wish they served other beverages other than wine so we could come here more often. Their food is outstanding and the decor is my favorite of any place in Lubbock.

La Diosa Cellars is one of our favorite restaurants when vacationing in Lubbock, Texas. It is still the cute, funky place that we remembered. We loved the Bella Roja wine and bought a bottle to bring home. Our food choices were the pork tenderloin and the Mediterranean Salad –excellent!

Service was incredibly slow and poor. We had to flag our server down every time we needed everything and he never asked if we needed or wanted anything else. The music was great, we love The City Limits! Overall the restaurant service sucks though, aside from when you first walk in - the greater was great!

Tables were a bit to close to each other. Made it hard to sit and not be crunched to table. Music was a touch loud. Drinks and food were very good, however one persons food did not arrive with everyone else’s. Waitress had to go back and find it. Took a little wait.

This was my first time at La Diosa. A colleague and I had taken a candidate there for dinner. Since it was MY first time and didn't really look into it, I didn't know that it wasn't a "dinner" kind of place. It worked out though. The waiter worked with us and helped us to fill our tummies. All in all we had good service and the food was delicious.

Our night out was delightful! The music was fabulous, the food was fabulous, and the entire experience was slightly less than perfect only by the slowness of some orders from the kitchen...our server was precious but the kitchen must have just been swamped. All in all, it was a lovely crowd and we all wanted food from the Cellars...drinks were perfect!!! looking forward to a repeat performance.

My wife and I recently moved to Lubbock and, at the recommendation of several friends, we decided to take my father in law to La Diosa during his first trip to West Texas. It did not disappoint! The tapas ranged from very good to great (I highly recommend the meatball-based dish or the shrimp and cheese stuffed jalapeños) and the service was some of the best ever. We are definitely going again!

I get excited about going to Lubbock because it means I get to go to La Diosa Cellars. Their food is fantastic and the atmosphere is eclectic, but homey. I always have great service and the house branded wine is fantastic.

For our Sunday brunch of 4 people: 2 entrees came at one time ... 1 entree came 5 minutes later ... last entree did not show before the other 3 entrees had already been eaten. Manager explained that this is a tapas restaurant with 15 years of local following & that kind of food delivery delay should be expected because of their known service style. We ordered from the brunch menu which only has full sized (non tapas) plates, meant to be a meal for the person ordering. One person at our table did not eat at all, as group was ready to leave by time the entree was ready. We will not return.

I'd recommend for a friend, just to have the experience .... but it's not a restaurant, I'd come back to after experiencing it once. The food was good but not for the value. For two people, we spent over $100 for 4 tapas. Also, be prepared to pay a cover at the door $5 per person for music (although you're eating and spending money there). I've been to PLENTY of restaurants and that was the first time I've ever heard of having to pay a cover for a mediocre band. The environment was great. They lacked in service, resembled a European style, very very slow. Our waiter checked on us twice in over two hours and at that we flagged him down to get our check.
All and all, there are better places in Lubbock to celebrate a birthday.

LaDiosa is a place for relaxation and refinement. The menu is unique and upscale while the wine list features both local and West Coast favorites.

Don’t miss the Angelina small plate. Out of this world.

We loved eating at La Diosa. The only issue we encountered was a lack of wheelchair ramps and space in the restaurant to accommodate room for a wheelchair to move through. That was disappointing that they were not accommodating in that sense.

We just moved to Lubbock and found La Diosa Cellars to be a great place for not only their wine selection but their food, too! They have a very nice list of wine available with their winery across the street. And, the food menu was very inviting. We had the caprese salad and a pizza while there along with a couple glasses of wine. Both of our platters were delicious and our wine was perfectly matched. We’ll be back again to try other wines as well as their menu.
