Not the same restaurant (La Tasca). We were disappointed of the food.
Good Food. Interesting décor. A little stark but maybe it was just because it was cold outside. Walked up two flights of stairs to the table which was ok but I think host should ask prior to just heading up. Wife had a more difficult three story walk than I. Paella was good, Duck Chicken and Veg. Needed more duck but tasty. Tapas were very tasty especially the peppers and also the cheese/queso. The wine was good but pricey and as one who comes from a location where we can order by the bottle and any unfinished we can cork and take with I was frustrated having to order the Malbec by the glass.
All in all it was good and I would go back. I like Tapas and I think this restaurant has potential to be a regular stomping ground!
Get together with former colleagues.
Was surprised by the name change, but the food did not change and I was thankful for that! Service was very attentive and pleasant.
disappointed the restaurant switched from full service tapas :(
La Tasca is gone! I checked in for my reservation, which the hostess couldn't find, and was seated downstairs. The menu was for a different restaurant! It felt like the twilight zone. 2 weeks ago I had the same Saturday brunch reservation and everything was normal. Suddenly it's all changed!
We visited in a Friday night. The service was so slow that most of the customers decided to leave. We got our appetizers 45 min after ordering and after one hour our paella wasn't ready yet, so we cancelled and left.
Service was slow. Server even forgot to refill our water. Our glasses didn’t get refilled until we were signing the check even though we’ve asked for it twice.
They are changing their menu and offerings so many of the seafood items we wanted were not available. They will now be a steak house with limited tapa offerings. Will not be returning to this location as I don't eat beef. They said the other locations were not changing their menu...
Food was ok. Menu used to be much larger but is much smaller since new owners. I felt the food wasn’t as good as it was before. Before it made me want to come back. This time leaving I felt like I could take it or leave.
I left la Tasca last night slightly hungry and very disappointed. Upon entering to a nearly empty restaurant with decor reminiscent of one of those tacky Mexican restaurants where they'll sing feliz cumple to your kid on his birthday, I knew I had made a mistake with this reservation. Regardless, I decided to stick it out. My friend and I ordered a selection of five tapas, all of which left us highly judgmental of that person who left a review saying that all the dishes here are excellent and the paella was among the best they've ever had. Our consensus? "Meh." Our steak was not cooked as we ordered it, and the mussels, gritty and two to three times larger than average, left us feeling a bit nauseated. All the other dishes, while not terrible, were not worth the $10+ price tag that accompanied them. The saving grace of the experience was our kind waitress who took the uneaten mussels off our tab despite the fact that we didn't complain to her.
Bottom line? Don't go here. There are plenty of good restaurants in this area and this one will just leave you willing to pay for a $5 single scoop of Nitrogen ice cream after dinner (we can attest), in order to make up for how unsatisfied you will inevitably be.
great brunch options when it comes to food, drinks were ok but given that they were $2 if you purchased the $22 brunch its hard to complain.
One of our favorite spots in Arlington. We've since moved from VA, but we're in town for the weekend. It was on the list before we got in the car to head down.
Love the food and the service is top notch. Looking forward to our next visit.
We had a great lunch date. We had remembered La Tasca from a decade ago, and it was just as we remembered it. Quiet, casual, great food, and great drinks. We will do this again!
Our family got together for dinner. We all ordered 3 tapas - most of which were shareable. The cold gazpacho soup was fantastic! We also loved the lamb lollipops, the lamb meatballs, and the fried eggplant and dip. We will definitely return!
One of the best paellas we have ever had. All of the tapas dishes we had were also excellent. Service was exceptional and we had a wonderful dinner.
My friends and I had A great time. The food was amazing, last time we came to La Tasca the food was not as good. This last visit we fell in love again with the food.
La Tasca used to be a decent tapas chain. Unfortunately since the last time I dropped in, they've severely cut back on the number of sangrias they have, drop a lot from the menu, and the service has tanked. I sat at the bar waiting for my date to arrive and the two bartenders paid little attention to me or the dirty three places next to me for the 30 minutes I was there. The service was slow and inconsistent at dinner, but the waitron was very pleasant. Don't think we'll be going back anytime soon.
We used to really like La Tasca in Arlington, but when we were there last week the service was terribly slow. It took half an hour after we placed our order to get the first plate, and then another 20 minutes to get the rest. And La Tasca has changed their menu in a negative way since the last time we were there by reducing the number of choices. One could hope that a smaller menu would mean that they really excel at the fewer number of dishes they offer, but this was not the case. The chorizo looked like frankfurters and did not taste authentic either. The dates wrapped in bacon were overcooked and mushy. We were totally disappointed.
Although I've been coming here for a long time, I was very disappointed with my recent visit. My guest and I had to keep swatting flies and gnats. And, we were inside! When they
brought the plates for the tapas, I had to send my plate back because it was dirty. The 2nd shift waitperson pretty much ignored us. Catching her attention was difficult. The food was ok - I don't know if I will return.
