"First time at restaurant, overall experience was good. I had expected to Latin dance but instead there was a band playing with no room for dancing. Food and drinks were very good. Service was a little slow."

"I see that there was a review about the service posted several months ago. I must of had the same waiter. The service was not acceptable and the food was just ok. The prices were reasonable and the band playing in the background was very nice. I would not go back only because there are so many good restaurants in Chicago so why waste my time on poor service."

"I had made a reservation for 2 and i never got my table, this hispanic gave it to somebody else.I was told i had to order something to eat in order for me to sit down, even like that still didnt get a table.Whats the point in making a reservation if they won't give you a table. And I'm sorry to say that my sister goes there every friday and is friends with the dj..this is not my first time there either,but it might be my last,smh,very poor service."

"We went to Taberna Tapas for Mother's Day this past Sunday. My mom loved it! Neither of my parents had tried tapas before, and both really enjoyed it. The staff was friendly and available when needed, with the exception of when it got a little busy. We arrived for a 12:30 pm reservation, and the restaurant was pretty empty, but once it started getting full and busier, we didn't see our waitress for about 30 minutes, after we'd ordered dessert. It took so long we didn't want to eat our dessert there so we took it to go. I had to walk up to the receptionist to ask for the dessert to go and provide her my credit card for us to pay. Besides, this long wait, everything else was perfect. We understood it got pretty busy, however, didn't agree it had to take so long to bring our dessert, or at least provide an update.
Thank you,
Lucy

"Had dinner here with a good friend that was visiting from Europe. We enjoyed the ambiance. It was quiet and we could converse easily on a Monday night. There were ~ 4-5 other tables with customers.
- the patatas bravas are some of the best I've ever had
- the grilled octopus with potatoes was excellent
- the red sangria was a bit "thin" but had good flavor. (Cafe Iberico has the best red sangria in town)
My friend summed it up as such, "Taberna Tapas has better and more innovative tapas than many tapas bars in Spain.""

"La Tabernacle never disappoints!! When you walk through the door, you go immediately from Chicago to Barcelona.m the food is positively delicious, the ambiance is fabulous and the service is excellent Ask for Indre). This night was a little noisy fecause the entertainment was a beautiful Flaminco dancer, but it wasn't invasive. La Taberns is gem!"
