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

This visit was somewhat impromptu. We were planning on going somewhere else, but found out that place was closed. Lucky us! We decided to try Tapa Del Luna. Simply Fa-bu-lous. The owner came over and greeted us. The food was amazing. The beer and wine selection was seriously immense. I will be going there again...SOON!

Tapa La Luna has become our favorite place to introduce people to. We love all th varieties of small plates, but they also serve pizzas and paninis. We stick with the small plates. They also have a nice wine list. We ate with a party of ten last night and the food and service were excellent! Our waitress kept all... More
