From sangria tastings, guitarist playing espanola music to flamenco this place has a magnificent Spanish feel to it. Small yet intimate this Tapas joint is my favorite. I asked my wife to marry me here and we have gone back several times to celebrate our anniversary. They always treat us with a dessert or sampling of sangria. Really great place,... More

Every time I go to Tasca, I love it. Generally I get their tapas--two tapas per person, and so many good ones! The duck leg and the sherry portabella mushrooms are particular favorites of mine, as well as the grilled Brie. Recently we hosted dinner for 20 friends there and had their prix-fixe menu--that too was delicious. Great atmosphere--attentive and... More

For $20, you'll get an appetizer, entrée as well as a sampler of three desserts. We were going there for tapas but notice they offer a pre-fix menu so we tried out the pre-fix menu. I am not usually a big fan for pre-fix since the selections are usually very limited. Tasca offer quite a number of different selections. The... More

Wonderful atmosphere and even greater food. If you ever come here, you have to try their crema catalana and sangria. I was almost in tears when I ate the last bite of that delicious custard and had to stop myself from licking the ramekin.

Enjoyed the traditional European dining experience where you spend hours with friends over a wonderful meal. I sampled three different tapas and my friends choose from the special dinner menu on the back. Red Sangria was perfect! Excellent value + quality = delicious dining experience. p.s. Thankful my friend pointed out the artwork on the walls. Interesting perspectives on the... More

We came here twice in one week - the first time was so terrific, we had to come back! There were six of us so we ordered nearly every tapas on offer - nothing disappointed! I really don't even know where to start, as truly, you just can't go wrong - perfectly cooked seafood, gorgeous vegetables, excellent meatballs, scrumptious desserts.... More

Nice selection of Tapas at really low prices. However, the food is not very tasty. Much better places for tapas in the area.

Friendly staff and great atmosphere, the food is good but I wasn't impressed. The sangria is great. And prices are reasonable. Not my first choice.

We had a variety of tapas and they were all tasty and delicious. We especially enjoyed the lamb meatballs (a special), albondigas, filet mignon, and baked brie. One person in our party opted for the paella entrée instead of tapas, and was a bit disappointed. The rice was soggy and there was not enough seasonings. We also shared desserts -... More

We went to dinner here mainly because it was close to where we were staying. So it was pleasant to find the tapas good, the sangria very good, made with fruit juice in it and the service attentive.
