Service is a little slow, but the food makes up for it. From the appetizers, to the steak, and even the side of rice, the food is excellent. Everything is spiced perfectly and super tasty. The prices are also really good for the amount of food you get. We will def be returning to this restaurant.

After getting seated, we ordered drinks and they arrived promptly. We ordered appetizers and when they arrived we ordered our dinner meals. Waiter never cane back to ask if we... More

We went for lunch, my daughter enjoyed her empanadas, the rice and beans could use a little more flavor. My husband said the garlic chicken was good. The potion sizes could be bigger for the money. The funny thing is that they both ordered rice & beans but one serving was bigger than the other. We never specified small or... More

The food was good, but the service was very slow. We shared empanadas and guacamole for appetizers. The guacamole was pretty good, but the empanadas were just okay. I had the avocado, corn and bacon salad (with grilled chicken), which was very light and refreshing. My friends split the Picada Mar y Tierra (land and sea), which came with plantains... More

Came expecting to find good Colombian food. The place looks great. Service was just there. Food tasted old. How can it happen. Ajiaco, you can see thru. Reheated empanadas. It was a Saturday at lunch time. They need to do a better job to justify 25 dollars per plate.

Las Tablas is a Columbian steakhouse and for the most part it scored high. There is street parking and a nearby public parking lot. It is a large restaurant with a bar and there is even a separate banquet room in the back.We came on a Thursday night, so we did miss the entertainment. Our server, Oscar, started off the... More

We went to Las Tablas early on a Friday night. The restaurant was half full at 6:30 and was completely full by 7PM. We started with the empanadas and avocado salad. The salad was enough to share with avocado, corn off the cob, bacon and a delicious lime vinaigrette. It was big enough to be a meal in itself. The... More

Known for its steak dishes, there are also many other offerings on the menu. The grilled shrimp were excellent, as was their signature dish of skirt steak. Combination dishes allow you to try a few of their dishes at the same time. The plantain added a nice sweet taste to the main courses. We shared a cocoanut flan for dessert,... More

Service is great and the menu varied. The Columbian food is great and the drinks also. The band plays on Fridays and Saturdays. A good place for a family birthday celebration or a couple's romantic date.

I went with a group from the office, one of our team outings. This was an afternoon event, got there before 1:00 PM on a Friday, and the restaurant was not crowded. The service was prompt, the wait staff friendly and attentive. We ordered an appetizer plate of grilled calamari, shrimp and octopus, and this was decent, my only complaint... More
