The most delicious tapas we've ever had. Particularly enjoyed the crab stuffed poquito peppers. Wanted to try everything. Each dish had its own unique flavor, and was so tasty. The ambience is warm, and the service top notch. Can't wait to go back!

Everything was outstanding. We loved the octopus, croquettas de jamon, mussels, crab & peppers. Delicious wine was excellently paired and made for a wonderful meal.

The dishes we ordered were all delicious. Especially loved the coquetas jamon and the lamb chops. Wine was also very good, and service was fine - an accomplishment these days!

Great selection of Tapas and paella and Spanish wines. Our teens had limoncello. The waiter was friendly and kept it moving. Water glasses stayed full. The small plates of paella were great and we enjoyed many other small dishes as well.

This was my first time here and it was great! Ambience is perfect for a date, with low light and candles on the table (though a bit dark for those of us who need reading glasses). The food and wine was delicious. We started with the meat and cheese plate, and between the three of us ordered the bacon wrapped dates, skirt steak, short ribs, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, and Portobello mushrooms. I didn't try the short ribs or mushrooms but everything else was delicious. The skirt steak was my favorite. Service was also great. I only nicked them a star on service because two of the plates seemed to get stuck in the kitchen and took quite a white to come out (we asked about them, he checked on them, and they came our a few minutes after). All in all I definitely recommend this place and will for sure be back! It's a great pre-DPAC spot.

Outstanding food and service. Really excellent choices from crab stuffed peppers to empanadas to bacon wrapped scallops to charcuterie. We were well taken care of and enjoyed a truly delicious meal.

We had incredible food and drinks! We are so grateful to workers who show up to care for patrons. While they did seem a bit under staffed, everyone was kind, polite, and ensured we had the best experience. Cannot wait to go back!

It seems the four orders at once were slightly confusing for staff. Food was out quick and it was very good. They did forget to bring out one appetizer.

Haven't neem to Taberna Tapas in 3 years - always liked it (although it was small). Well they took over an adjacent store front so now it has doubled in size. The place looks great and the food continues to be fantastic. I really like this place.

Taberna Tapas never disappoints! Great service, food is always delicious and just the right amount. We went with another couple and everyone enjoyed everything. We have frequented TT since the day the opened, they didn't even have a liquor license. Since then, they have only improved and evolved but never strayed from their roots. It is the perfect place to bring visitors and to just go for a regular night out.

Maybe because we came later in the evening, but we would not recommend at all. The meat was way over cooked and the the food was way under seasoned.

I got the veggie paella and it was not seasoned well. No flavor at all. We had to put so much salt on it.

It was very very dark and hot inside. Kinda a weird experience.

First time dining here. Food was good and prices fair. Lots of choices available for all tastes. Our waiter was fine, but the hostess was rude and after we were already sat with drinks came to the table and essentially accused us of not having a reservation which we did through the OT app.

Host try to put us in the back of the restaurant when tables were available in front window. I order food and drinks, food arrived, waited for drinks, had to flag down a host to get drinks, wrong food brought to my table, chicken wings were so hot, it burned my mouth, after complaining, another plate came, during the dinner no one came and asked if everything was ok.

We visited on a quiet Sunday evening. There were customers at two other tables. Service was prompt. Dishes arrived on the table fresh from the kitchen and hot. Some of the dishes seemed a bit disappointing... but perhaps Spanish food is just not our thing. One dish was too salty, the Tres Mares had the tiniest mussels I've ever (barely) seen. Nothing was terrible, but nothing really stood out as especially delicious. The price was no bargain.

We got a variety of different items. The food was simply not good. The risotto was loose watery rice, meat was overcooked, food was unseasoned. Waiter was nice. Hostess was strange and just stood there and stared a lot. Very bizarre experience. Would not recommend.

We love tapa's. This was our first visit to Taberna. We were grateful that they accepted reservations for a party of 8. We will be back to enjoy the lamb and octopus, both dishes were truly fantastic. We will avoid the empanadas. (I could not tell if they we meat or mushroom filled). If you have a sweet tooth the churros were fantastic, hot, crispy, yet still moist in the middle.
