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.

    My husband and I went to La Nacional for our 37th anniversary last night. We had been to La Nacional before and loved it. We were most definitely NOT disappointed last night! The food was fantastic. The ambiance was lovely. The food was presented beautifully. The waitstaff were excellent! This will be a place for special occasions from now on!

    It was quiet outdoors, and there was a breeze just starting. We had the traditional gazpacho — perfect taste, perfect texture — and a mixed tabla and some patatas bravas to share and, with a bottle of txakoli, it was the perfect meal for a heat-wave evening.

    Not at all the best customer service. The waitress was rude and on top we had a special event to celebrate, which we had mentioned earlier and there was not a kind gesture. Very noisy place

    The octopus was really good. Drinks, salad and gazpacho also excellent. I ordered Manchego Mac and cheese but it never arrived, I didn't remember to have it removed from the check.

    Service was the highlight at La Nacional. All staff were very attentive and willing to provide the best service. Drinks were also very good. We had a pitcher of watermelon cava and a white cava pitcher. Both of them delicious and refreshing on a hot summer NYC night. Our only complain was the food. In the past the flavor and size of dishes use to be as served in any Tapas Bar in Spain; plenty and flavorful. That’s no longer the case at La Nacional. A bit puzzling, however if I return it will be for the drinks and the fantastic service.

    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!
