The food was exceptionally good, but the waiter looks as if he came back from a fight that he lost. Very hot welcoming.

The food was absolutely delicious, and the service was great! We thoroughly enjoyed the flamenco dancing accompanied by Spanish guitar that made the ambiance very romantic. What a lovely Valentine's Day evening!

It was our first time there, and had a small plate price fixe menu for valentines day. It was worth the cost, a great way to taste new things, and their house sangria was excellent. We were seated at a quiet table away from the bar area, the ambiance was nice, the waiter and food runners were friendly and courteous. Even the host was nice. It was pricey, but definitely worth it. Overall a very positive experience and we will definitely be back.

Came with a group of friends after a session in the Escape Room on King Street. We had a table reservation, but were a bit early so we all found a spot at the bar. The vibe of the place was fun with the live band playing Latin music. The service at the bar was outstanding! Our bartender was very attentive and when we ordered food, it came out quickly. Everyone had a good time and we'll be sure to come back!

the service was okay. The food however, was terrible. The gambas were tiny and had no flavor. The menu described them as being cooked in white wine but there was nothing but olive oil on them. Hence, the no flavor. We then ordered a paella and it was super salty! No one at my table was able to finish the paella. I used to love La Tasca but the service and food has really gone down. I think tonight was my last visit and i wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to any one of my friends.

Our server was attentive and helpful. Food was great! Enjoyed the Sangria brunch with friends. Mango sangria good choice.

Excellent live entertaiment on Wednesday nights. Food was great and service had excellent timing. Sangrias are better but still need more work.

My first time trying Spanish Paella and it was fantastic. Also, the Sangria Flight is a must try!

Highly recommended!!! La Tasca tapas are perfect for family-style dining. The sangria menu is top-notch as the fruit is soaked in liquor for several months before serving. Great restaurant for large groups, dates, and families with children. The ambiance is laid-back during the day & early evening and vibrant/ exciting at night.

We went on a Friday night with our 1yr old and there was a live band, lights and people dancing. The accommodating hostess seated us on the upper floor where it wasn’t as loud yet we were able to watch all the action!

The lamb chops, and chorizo tapas are our all-time favorites and of course the peach Sangria Blanco

Visited La Tasca on a Friday evening. I was expecting lots of noise just like most places with a bar, but the sound level at the bar was minimal even with the games on screen. The food was amazing, authentic and delectable and priced just right. It's a good date night environment, and the service was good also.
