The 4 of us went for dinner on Easter. There were only a couple other diners. We all ordered combinations of skirt steak, calamari and other seafood. Generous portions and very tasty! The only reason I didn't give it a rating of 5 was that the meat was overcooked. I know it is hard to cook such thin steaks rare... More

At Las Tablas, order the Matrimonio - which is a combination of chicken breast and steak - both of which are nicely grilled and flavored. Many of the entrees are served with three sides including potato, yucca, and plaintain. The plaintain is so sweet and yummy that it automatically becomes my dessert to top of the meal. You can also... More

We arrived around 6 with 12 men on a stag weekend. Very accomdating. Very friendly. Efficient service. Steaks were awesome. Encalades were traditional and freshly cooked. Well worth a visit. Great tasting food

This is simply prepared food done very well. Lots of choices ranging from seafood to pork to steak. All done on the grill. Don't forget to ask for the sauces. They are tasty and not spicy. Limited choice of green vegetables but the yucca and potatoes are good. Service is spotty. The food definitely is the star here.

My first colombian restaurant and it was a nice discovery. Food is really delicious, service is friendly and professional. I taste new things like yuka and banane plantain and all was so delicious. The Cheesecake as a dessert was awesome The sweet red wine was also a nice discovery

This was a perfect example of great food spoiled by poor service. We had reservations for 7 on 12/26 for 6:30 pm and called and moved them up to 5:30, luckily. We arrived and it took someone awhile to greet us. We finally got seated and the service was sporadic at best. As the place filled up more and more... More

We went 2 days in a row. Loved the lunch specials, especially the price. Ordered beef and cheese empanadas for appetizers. I liked the cheese better. Tried shrimp, sancocho, pork chops, and entrana lunch specials. They were all delicious, and good size servings. The plantain in the aborrajado wasn't completely ripe and it had very little guava in the middle.... More

Got the skirt steak combo and awesome food. Lots of food and couldn't finish it all. Service was great. Dining was a bit loud so not a place for a quiet dinner

This is a great restaurant if you want a nice latino colombian. You might want to have time to spare because it takes a while for the food. All in all it is a good restaurant with a nice atmosphere.
