The food was authentic. The service was a little slow, but the atmosphere was great. The tapas were perfect for lunch and we had a great view of the Chinese New Year parade.

Fiancé’s fave place in DC. Great tapas - good variety. Sangria is spot on. Best after 8pm for dimmer lighting. Always a good place to eat for groups or dates. Highly recommend.

Service was great! Manager came over multiple times to check on us and make sure we were enjoying our meal! Tapas in general are small plates and that’s exactly what it was- felt like i was back in Spain! So delicious and worth it!

We love La Tasca. We've been to DC, Arlington, and Alexandria. Love the sangria. Been to sangria creation events. They are so fun! We go to the DC La Tasca whenever we go to a Caps game. It's right across the street! The food is out of this world. It's pricey, though. Don't go there for a cheap night out. But it's worth it.

Convenient location across the street from the arena. We had dinner before going to a basketball game. The food was very good. We would go back.

We were so disappointed with this trip to La Tasca. We were seated in the back in an empty section with boxes of glasses on nearby tables. I didn’t really care as long as we were seated. It took 12 minutes to be acknowledged by a server. Although we were given a HH menu and ordered drinks from it when the bill came they were full price. We don’t have time to argue as we were meeting friends and my husband practically had to go into the kitchen to get the bill so we could pay. Very disappointing, and with all the options nearby, we most likely won’t be back.

Had the Paella Marinera. Very little seafood but a lot of rice. Didn’t feel it was worth $45. I will say that the seafood was cooked well.

The three of us including g our 5 year old son had a great time. Tapas were tasty and the place was bustling with people. Good experience.

The Spanish tapas, while not all that varied, were authentic and tasty and the paella marinera was surprisingly good. Try the rabas (fried calamari) as well. Wine by the glass was good quality if a bit stingy on the pouring — maybe better just to order a bottle if your budget permits.

Tapas were bland and mediocre at best. Literally tasted like bar food from a frozen bag that had been refried. The calamari was chewy, cheese curds stale and tasted or processed American cheese, shrimp bland and oily, the lamb meat balls were decent. Service was slow, unfriendly, and unappealing as the environment was also dissspointing. This spot was basically boring with no appeal and completely lacked luster. The only way this place is still in business is due to its locations across from the stadium. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND
