Great food in a great location. We walked up and down King st and after we sat to have delicious tapas at this restaurant. The patatas bravas are a must (potatoes). The sangria was on brunch happy hour for $2. That is only on the weekends. I loved it. Small portions with a big taste!!!! I will return.

Our party of four chose this location based on the menu items and reviews. The location is easy to find and we did not have to wait to be seated. The decor and atmosphere are nice and with the exception of the ceiling vents, everything appeared to be clean. Although our order was taken in a timely fashion, it took... More

La Tasca never disappoints, especially love the brunch. The sangria and tapas are always excellent and we always have great service. My fiancé and I were recently in Spain and still think that La Tasca's paella is one of the absolute bests we have ever tried! Highly recommend this restaurant!!

Five of us older travelers collectively considered this to be a restaurant better suited to a more youthful group , though we all enjoyed our meal .Two had steak which could have been more tender for the price of 23.00 , though tasted good . Over all we felt a tad overpriced but not excessively , since our waiter seemed... More

Been there twice and was equally impressed both times. Top notch quality and presentation. Sangria is also legit, not some mixed drink with a tinge of wine. Had the charcuterie board first time then a very tender beef strips tapas the second time. Both were excellent. Add in the flamenco dancers and this is just a great place to eat,... More

We love this place. We've been several times and have always left satisfied. I recommend ordering one of the tapas samplers. It really does contain a variety of their popular dishes. Also, if you want some pretty authentic sangria, order the traditional with the booster shot. The dessert sampler is awesome as well. The tres leches was my least favorite,... More
