Spanish
La Nacional has been feeding Spaniards and Latin Americans in New York since the 19th century from its historical brownstone in the heart of what was Little Spain. Today, our volunteer-run non-profit has opened its doors to create a community restaurant and gathering place for everyone to enjoy. The Society sponsors the visas of Spain top young chefs - providing them with an apartment in our brownstone to draw inspiration from La Nacional’s past and establishing a culinary epicenter in New York City for Spanish food. Our goal is to offer diners innovative cuisine, reasonable prices and a neighborhood atmosphere for everyone.

The Restaurant at La Nacional is the catalyst for significant cultural and community programming that reflects the Society’s 155 year-old mission. This includes free or low-cost apartments upstairs for artists-in-residence and opening our event space on the parlor floor to community events, cultural pursuits and charitable causes.

    We got up and left without eating or drinking anything after being there for 50 minutes. After 20 minutes we had to ask 2 people for waters and to take our order. After 30 minutes we finally gave our order for drinks and food. Then after 50 minutes we asked of someone could check on our drinks and the waitress finally came back and said she lost our order and never put in the drinks or food. No manager came over , no one offered us anything it was unbelievable

    We hadn't been to La National since we moved out of Manhattan/2008. The renovated restaurant is larger and has 2 single stall bathrooms. The food is as delicious and portions as generous as we remembered. The visit was a real treat and we plan to be back more often!

    The best Spanish place in Manhattan. 5 years in a row celebrating my birthday here. It's a tradition by now. The best food and ambience. As a Spaniard, I truly appreciate the good food and the personalized attention of this restaurant. Thank you so much for making this experience a memory we'll remember forever!

    frankly trash service. Imagine being seated and then needing to flag a waiter to get our first glass of water, AND never got refills. It took 10+ minutes to flag someone to sign the check. And as our party tries to flag a waiter, we see some tables get served multiple times.

    Each experience at La Nacional gets better and better. The staff always works to meet our needs and as they get to know us better, they know what we are needing even before we do!! Perfect customer appreciation and service. AND... the food is always excellent.

    Had a lovely dinner here. After asking for a quieter table, we sat outside under their patio. The service was attentive. The food excellent and varied. The pricing fair. Will definitely return.
