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!

Every single time I come here it is a hit. I am always surprised by how good the food is even though I’ve had it many times. Hospitality is top tier. Thank you to everyone at Las Tablas.

And the food was seasoned dead-sea salty.

Service took a bit long. I am guessing they do not yet have enough waiters. Waited 15 minutes for waiter after being seated to get a cocktail. I asked them to bring a red wine with my steak while ordering. I was halfway thru my steak and no wine yet. They eventually brought it after I told them. I have been here before, but I guess they are not enough waiters back to work. They did give us a nice complimentary tequila which I guess was to make up for it. We appreciate that. Totally understandable why service was slow.

Sauces came to the table almost empty— were they reused? Appetizer came with no sauce. Steaks came out not sizzling on the iron plate and were warm but not hot like they were just cooked. Our waters were never refilled the entire time. Printer wasn’t working and waited 20 minutes for a check and finally just said we would pay cash it would be walking out.

I understand restaurants have had to change with Covid, but the choices made here have been to serve subquality food, not cooked to order, with terrible hospitality but still charge full price. No thanks.

I can tell they were short staffed so it’s not the host/hostess fault but everything was slow and we had to cancel a few dishes since they never came. Also forgot the sides to my main entree. It was horrible.

Overall it was a good experience. There was only one waiter so at first it took some time for someone to come to our table but after that it went well. Food was good, but the meat was somewhat undercooked. Desert was delicious, we had the tres leches cake!

This used to be a fabulous Colombian restaurant. I used to fast before I came here to eat. The picada Colombiana was my jam. I don’t know what happened to it. The chicken was dry. The steak was burnt, the services was slow. Maybe the cooks changed after Covid i don’ know. I hope they make changes to restore their old glory!

Made a reservation on February 8th for Valentine's day. Got all dressed up and nice. Showed up on time in which the Hostess asks, "Did you have a reservation?" She then continues with informing us they have sold out of food! No steak, no chicken, no phone call.... spent $50 in Uber rides in what was undoubtedly the worst Valentine's Day dinner (or non-dinner) ever.

I took my date on Valentine's day and they ran out of most of their menu items. Their steak was the whole reason I went and they had none. They also ran out of other meats and didn't even have avocado left. Desserts were limited also. I was expecting at least a complementary item due to the evening being ruined and none was given.

Our first experience at Las Tablas was an absolute terrible one. My girlfriend and I thought we were making the right choice when picking this steakhouse to accommodate us on our very first Valentine's Day together. We made reservations a week in advance at the Lincoln Ave location. We drove an hour from the suburbs in snowy conditions to celebrate our Valentine's Day there. We parked along the street on Lincoln Ave and paid the parking meter. When we arrived in Las Tablas, we were greeted and brought to our table. Everything seemed great at the moment. However, we soon would find out from our server that the restaurant was all sold out of Steak, Fish, and Shrimp. Which, as you could imagine, was incredibly disappointing (given that their sign logo/sign includes the words "Colombian Steakhouse" on it). The thrill of dining in this restaurant instantly turned into embarrassing regret. Our server attempted to sell us on the chicken, but we explained that we already ate chicken for lunch and were anticipating a steak dinner on our special day. Due to the disappointing limitations, we decided to pass on dinner entrees. In all, we only ordered two drinks and Empanadas before paying our bill and then leaving. The drinks and appetizers were delicious, however, our night... was ruined. We had looked forward to our visit, but we now plan on never going back.

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.

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