We visited this establishment based on a friends recommendation and good reviews online. We had our company team dinner there and were pleasantly surprised by this gem. The decor is cozy and all the servers and bartenders are super nice. The food was fantastic and everyone in our party was happy with everything! We discussed meeting there again some time... More

We loved this place. We had two appetizers, entree each , dessert, soft drinks $57 without tip. Excellent value, tasty food, fabulous service (thank you Hazel). Lovely, warmly decorated, soft live music for a Saturday night. I'd make reservations cause it was busy. Quite an extensive menu. I couldn't fault them on anything. We will definitely go back!!!

Found this place in yelp and decided to try it. The food was amazing! We ordered 5 plates (too much) for the two of us. Each plate has 4 pieces. We ordered the crab Rangoon, spring rolls, tempura pork tenderloin, calamari, and then decided to get 2 bacon cheeseburgers. I don't have a complaint about any of it. Calamari was... More

The restaurant is on the smaller side but has a great ambiance. Recommend for a date night, the menu has many interesting options and I enjoyed the three appetizers I split with a friend. We went early on a Friday night and it was busy! Be sure to make reservations if you are looking for a special night as we... More

The food was very good. The live music added greatly to the atmosphere and was not intrusive to our conversation. The menu runs from burgers (Kobe) to Sushi?! There were six of us, so we could order a variety of items and take suggestions from the staff in order to really enjoy the variety available. The wine list is on... More

I went to Tapa La Luna for dinner on Friday and the restaurant was full. There was live music in the restaurant, and the staff was very friendly. I had seafood over rice noodle. It was a little bit spicy and the seafood was fresh. Nice place to enjoy decent food.

My wife and I went on a Wednesday night. They had good live music, very good service, and food. I had a chicken dish with roasted potatoes that was excellent and my wife had an eggplant parmesan entry that she enjoyed. The great thing about this place is that everything was really good so that it made for a nice... More

Had a really great family meal here. Nice atmosphere with a really good menu. Can share lots of small plates or opt for something bigger. We had several plates. Loved the crab cakes, rolls, various bruschetta, pork tacos, fried bananas and crème brulee. Very friendly wait staff with very reasonable prices. We will definitely go back.

A very different restaurant in a college town. This is a Tapas style restaurant with a wide assortment of food. You can get sushi, kobe beef sliders, and other specialty foods served in the traditional tapas style. Any food I have had at the restaurant has been very tasty. It is a fun way to have a meal, try some... More
