Steakhouse
Originally founded over twenty years ago, Las Tablas is Chicago's premier Colombian restaurant. Our versatile and award-winning menu has something for all tastes, and our homemade sangria and other Latin cocktails are sure to delight your palate. Our signature house dish is the 'entraña' skirt steak, and was named 'Best Skirt Steak in the U.S.' by national food program 'America's Best Bites'. Try it alone or pair it with any number of choices including grilled chicken breast, grilled tiger shrimp, grilled pork loin, or several other choices. If you're feeling more adventurous and hungry, try our version of Colombia's national dish, the Bandeja Paisa (see photos). And for those not feeling so carnivorous, we also offer vegetarian options. We look forward to serving you, and showing you why Las Tablas is still Chicago's first choice for Colombian cuisine after more than two decades. Bienvenidos!

While I enjoyed the food, as usual and the waiter was very attentive, we had to wait too long to be seated. At the time we arrived, restaurant was not that crowded. Only had one hostess and she was busy seating another party.

The food was so delicious and presented well. The drinks were fresh and balanced. There was only one server so the service was a bit slow. Overall it was a great experience

We always have a great time here. Servers are super sweet. Food is consistently good. Wine is very nice as well, especially the “Los Haroldos Cabernet reserve!”

Consistently good food. Great exposure to Columbian cuisine. Most entrees should be shared. Service can be a little inattentive.

I've had my eye on this place for a while and I'm so glad I finally went! I got the regular platter for two and it was well worth the price. I definitely plan to come back to try their seafood.

We made a reservation for 7:15 and upon arrival were told they had overbooked and even if we had a reservation the wait was still +2 hours. We did not stay and left immediately.

I have been to Las Tablas on 2 prior occasions and both times the wait was not as bad as this time. I had reservations to which we had to wait to be seated for like 15-20minutes after we checked in. The restaurant doesn't have like a waiting area, so you have to wait at the door and since the bar and some tables are there you are constantly moved to make room for people to pass by. Once we were seated our waitresses introduced herself and was attentive. Nonetheless, we had to wait over an hour for our food to be served. The food was delicious, but having to wait for so long can prevent you from tasting and enjoying the food.

A near perfect dining experience. The staff was friendly and attentive. The prices were beyond reasonable and the portions generous. The wine list is somewhat limited (not a bad thing!), but we were able to get a wonderful Malbec for about $40 (I think that was the most expensive bottle on the list too!). My steak was a perfect steakhouse medium-rare and well-seasoned. I personally would have liked a little salt and pepper on the potato and yuca, but being a traditional Colombian restaurant I wasn't about to embarrass myself by asking. Besides, they also provided a nice mix of sauces with our appetizers that worked just as well. They offer a nice selection of desserts should you have room (the Tres Leches was definitely one of the better ones I've had). Would definitely dine here again!

We went to Las Tablas for Restaurant Week and LOVED it. Getting seated was pretty hectic/disorganized (I presume because of Restaurant Week), but once we were seated the service was excellent. The decor and ambience were great, and we absolutely loved all of the food. The regular menu is a bit pricy, but the Restaurant Week menu is a steal. Highly recommend!

We’ve been many times before and always loved it but this is the best restaurant week deal EVER. The amount of food for that price is insane. It is SO good. I love it and will be back. It’s our favorite date spot. The service is so great. There’s not a better spot.

The service continues to struggle at Las Tablas as the prices continue to go up. IMO, the first thing any restaurant ought to be striving for is getting the first round of drinks out. A longer dinner experience is just fine as long as there is a steady flow of...anything. Steak was great, as usual, shrimp delicious.

We went for restaurant week. We had originally made our reservations for the one on Lincoln but upon arriving it was closed. Didn't understand why they would make a reservation for 11:00 am when the restaurant didn't open until 12. We then drove to the one on Irving. It was open. The food was good and plentiful. The waitress was nice. She mixed up a few things but fixed it immediately. I think it was due to her not writing anything down but remembering it on her own. Overall a good experience. Would recommend it.

Despite that we were the only ones in the restaurant, service was extremely good. The Ajiaco soup very recommendable. The restaurants decorations are very authentic! Wish there were places like this in New York, will be definitely coming back.

The quality and taste of the food was in need of an upgrade. I found the carne asada to be under seasoned and a little tough. Also, they were out of a key ingredient for a main dish.

The combination plate with skirt steak and shrimp is always consistently delicious. We have been ordering it for 5 years and it is always delicious. Servers are always friendly.
