Very good, authentic Spanish cuisine. One of the best Spanish restaurants in NC, better than most in DC and NY.
Food was good.
Chef is very personable and visits with you which is nice!
The service was good for tapas but lost attention when we did not order wine or entrees
Kinda funky - owner/chef comes out to help you order - it was a fun evening with my husband and son!
Wonderful food and service. We will be back.
This was my first visit to Tasca Brava. It was a very quiet Monday night so we received special attention from the chef/owner. He is very knowledgeable about Spanish food and takes great pride in the authenticity of the dishes on the menu. We enjoyed a nice Rose and several tapas selections including special roasted peppers, cassava bread was just like what I had in the Galapagos, a lovely cheese/charcuterie plate, and a shrimp dish. The fig crème brulee and apple desserts were the perfect ending. Definitely worth a visit!
We were very pleased with our experience at Tasca Brava 607. Although the service was a bit slow, we attributed that to the nature of the food; we did not expect a fast dining experience. The food was delicious and quite authentic. Highly recommend Tasca Brava; we will be back for the paella as we did not have room for it on this visit!
Best dining experience we have ever had in Raleigh. Juan provided outstanding hospitality and is clearly passionate about quality and authentic Spanish food. His love for what he is doing comes through in the food and the experience.
If you are looking for fried southern food, sweet tea and Bud this is not the place for you. But if you want to be transported to España for dinner and Spanish wines then leave your bags at home and just dine here - no TSA or jet lag.
Added bonus - free on site parking in the rear.
We will be back!!!
This restaurant is great for a date or special occasion. The service is excellent. The chef personally came to our table to explain the menu and specials and to talk with us about his love of Spanish cuisine. The food was delicious and authentic and the atmosphere lends itself for a quiet, romantic evening. Will definitely return!
The owner provided an in depth understanding of the food culture and preparation. The fresh made cheese bread and fig with goat cheese and balsamic reduction was divine.
The squid ink seafood paella for two was beautifully presented and delicious. The tender seafood and crispy rice on the bottom made this a truly authentic dish. The house roasted coffee was great. I will go back and try each dish.
We went to Tasca Brava 607 for my birthday. It was very enjoyable. The owner greeted us and seated us and took our order explaining first all the delicious entrees and tapas they had on the menu. All sounded wonderful and what we ordered did not disappoint us. We had enough food with the paella vallenciana for four people
