The food was fantastic, as was the service, and it was a nice quite evening when we went.

They accommodated our birthday party and did not hassle us about sitting late (as some people were running behind)!

They had about 6 different types of sangria that were delicious in addition to the best Birthday Flan of our life. The waitress was perfectly attentive to our need and we never ran out of drinks of water.

I brought a group of 8 Georgetown students for dinner. We were shuffled off to the third floor where we were essentially treated as a "necessary bother." The food was very good, but our server could not have been less interested in our needs, and I felt throughout the entire meal that she just couldn't wait for us to be done and out of there.

Met a friend for dinner, sat on patio. Service was excellent food was middle of the road, sangria was just ok, think they forgot the alcohol; not fit for foodie.

Second visit, pomegranate mojitos as good as I remember! Empanadas, artichokes, bacon wrapped pork, sardine salad and desert all delicious with multiple flavors to enjoy. Service was a little slower than expected, not crowded on a Thursday night but food was fresh and hot when it came out. Will continue to keep this on the "do again" list!

Did the happy hour. The chicken and ham appetizer for 250 was amazing and of course the beef empanada was great. Staff was so nice. I highly recommend for after work.

Beautiful place, friendly and accommodating staff, but simply not worth the price. I make tapas from time to time out of a very nice cookbook, but still out of a cookbook. I didn't taste anything that wowed or impressed, that clearly beat my efforts at home. Very pricey place.

Food was good, but again the menu changed. Looking forward to eating some items, but weren't available. Not sure if we just went on a bad night, there weren't hardly any servers, therfore service was slow and had to wait to get refills on drinks.

Great food and service as always at La Tasca! Highly recommend the Sangria Blanca with the booster shot and the bacon-wrapped dates.

This place had been a Wednesday tradition for my girlfriend and I but because of work, haven't been in quite a while. The management had apparently changed and with that, many other things such as half price bottle night, which stinks because we could avoid paying an outrageous markup (not singling out La Tasca, just some restaurants in general). That having been said...
The quality of the food itself is fine, but the food prep is just bland at best. It's as though they decided to be anti spice (not even salt and pepper grinders on the tables). We ordered Brussels Sprouts, shrimp and bacon wrapped scallops, chicken empanadas, and bacon wrapped dates, and a cheese plate to close. Honestly, the cheese plate was the best course.
The service: if there was more than 1 or 2 people waiting tables, it would have been fine, but I think that our waitress had 5 or more tables, so things were missing, like promptness. It took us 20 minutes to pay out since we asked for the check.
Maybe it was an off night. We're going to give it a month or two and see if anything changes for the better.

This place is not family friendly it's more for business meetings. We asked to be seated upstairs but they told us it was all booked and it wasn't true. Stay away from the octopus or other seafood tapas at the La Tasca - Arlington, VA restaurant.
