We had 5:30 reservation, at 6 we still were not attended, I had to ask someone to attend us so we could order which still took time. As we were getting ready to leave we were finally attended.

Delicious food and drink. The pulpo was a miss and I’ve had better patatas bravas elsewhere. Otherwise great experience.

The new furniture is very nice.
Where we were seated, the server only occasionally came by and we had to flag her down twice to ask for the check. She never came by to ask if we wanted to place an additional tapas order or get a drink refills – her loss!

This is my favorite restaurant, I love their food. We were seated immediately because we had a reservation. The waiter came and asked for our drink orders. I was halfway through the order and he just walked away. 15 mins later he came back with waters for the table, which I didn’t order. I gave him the correct drink order and began to order our food. I ordered one of my favorite dishes and was told the chef was not cooking that today. 🤨 I asked were they out of the meal and he said no, the chef just was not cooking it today. I asked to see the manager. He left and came back with no manager, and said he could make the dish for me. Our food came out before our proper drink order, so me and my family were very thirsty. 40 mins later he showed back up with our drinks and to check on us. He had never even looked our way before then. We ordered another round of tapas, which came out fairly quickly. Everything came except one dish, but the waiter was not around for us to ask about it. We finished up or meals and chalked up our missing dish to the crappie service. We assumed the waiter never put the order in (like our drinks) and we were ready for dessert. My family ordered and received our desserts. Halfway through dessert a different waiter brings out the missing dish we ordered earlier. We explained to him that it was ordered earlier, and we were now finished eating and did not want it. He took it back and our original waiter came back with the dish and asked if we would like to pack it up and take it home. We also explained to him that we wanted it when we ordered it, not an hour later. He was visibly upset and took the dish back. The waiter came back with our check and shoved the receipt in my face saying “Look we took the dish you didn’t want off.” And slammed the check on the table. At that point my husband was ready to explode because of how aggressive the waiter was with me, so we left. He did not get a big tip and my Mother’s Day meal was not all I hoped.

Love my visit at the la Tasca, their Taps are well cooked, and come with nice size. I ordered steak and its quality is up to premium steakhouse. The wine selection is wide and good one. For lunch, three taps with a glass wine is well served with its quality and economic value. I highly recommend my friends or everyone to La Tasca at Rockville.

We use to go there all the time but moved out of the area and haven’t been in awhile, I think since we were last there the quality went down and the price went up. We still enjoyed the fried eggplant with cheese sauce and the angus steak had good flavor. The scallops we very tough and over cooked. Otherwise the food was good but not great.

Most of the tapas were delicious with the exception of the paella valenciana. We were disappointed that it was bland and lacked meat that was listed along with the presentation that paella normally has as a main dish. It wasn’t very busy to forgive the lack of attention the server should have given especially with our beverages. We ran out of water towards the end of our meal and had to track our server down so we can get more. We also got an incorrect order request and had to send the dish back. Aside from the issues, the tapas were pretty good.

We were first seated near a serving area & by windows/doors that open in nice weather. It was a cold night & air was coming through the slats, so we asked to be moved. We ordered drinks and an appetizer. Then, things declined. We ordered many tapas & only received a few. We assumed the others would come out as prepared, but after time we tried to get our servers attention. He totally ignored us & when we finally got him he said the kitchen was backed up. Interesting that people next to us & behind us sat down after us & got what we had ordered earlier! For the next 15 minutes our waiter ignored us & never checked back to see if we wanted more drinks, more food, etc... one person finally spoke to the Manager & we finally got 1 missing item, but it was incorrect. We had to ask again for the other item. Our waiter had never returned. We had to once again ask the manager to get a bill! Very disappointing experience.

The restaurant has a nice decor and the layout of tables allows for some amount of privacy.
The restaurant was not overly busy but I felt as though we were being rushed a bit to order. Despite replying that we'd not been there before, the waiter offered little in the way of explanation of the menu. Also, when paying the check it would be nice if the staff had offered to validate our parking as we didn't realize that was offered until we got back to the garage and saw the sign on the pay station (then a walk back to La Tasca).
Nice enough but didn't stand out.

While La Tasca use to be one of my top five favorite restaurants, they have completely changed their menu in the past year and many of my favorite menu items are gone (like the ensalada de espinacas which was amazing). While the new offerings were decent, the restaurant is just not the same anymore which, for me, is a disappointment. As for the service...not impressed! Matthew was not adept at engaging with us and we felt very rushed even though the restaurant was not busy, despite his professed 1.5 year tenure there. Alas, while change is inevitable, the changes La Tasca have made are not for the better given my many prior experiences.

The place, drinks, food and desserts are excellent. We reserved a table through open table but after waiting over 30 minutes after the time of the reservation while having a drink and appetizer at the bar the table was still nowhere to be found, so we decided to eat at the bar.

All the tapas we're good and enjoyable. Steak was a little tough, but tasty. Fried eggplant was outstanding. Pailla was delicious. Loved the dates wrapped in bacon. Enjoyed the Sangria. The noise level is low, so it was easy to carry on a conversation. Without a doubt, I will return to try other items.

Thanks to the superb and very attentive and knowledgeable Jammie, our waiter, and the hot from the kitchen tapas, we had one of the best lunches in the area.

Whether it was the bubbling meat balls, sizzling shrimp, steaming croquetas, or hot off the grill angus beef with fresh garlic, everything was fresh and warm and perfect on a very cold day.

Also the lunch deal here is the very very best in the whole WashingtonDC area!!!!

With the wonderful service ( thank you Jammie) and high quality food and excellent complimentary tomato focaccia and fresh bread, do your self a favor and enjoy a memorable meal.

Food is always terrific here. On this particular day, they seem to be short staffed or something, because our waiter was overly busy and forgot some things. However, once we had someone go back and check us in on Open Table, they realized we were there celebrating a birthday and brought a dessert with a candle and sparkler to the table. It was just an off day - but will not stop me from going back again!
