    Loved the food and the service was wonderful! We did tacos and bravas patatas. Then finished up with the churro sundae. Our server was so nice. Definitely coming next time to try more of the tapas!

    Wow! Last night was our first visit to LaPrensa, and it was wonderful. The array of tapas we ordered was both beautiful and yummy, and the drinks were excellent. The items that were fried were light, crispy and not at all oily (try the eggplant chips with rosemary and honey, or the churro sundae to see what I mean). Honestly, this is frying talent. And all their small plates brought big flavor, rivaling a certain tapas restaurant in DC. Next time we will hit the taco side of the menu, which I am certain will not disappoint. Special thanks to the staff, who made the night memorable with their hospitality!

    Three entree orders came out in pieces. First the embarrassingly small NY strip then about 15 minutes later the sides for that meal. The second entree came about 15 minutes after that.

    The food and service were excellent. Will definitely return. My only critique is that the jerk chicken empanada did not taste like jerk at all to me. It tasted and looked more like chicken tinga.
