The staff were friendly and engaging and it has a nice, intimate atmosphere with subtle background music. The wine list, while short, has some really tasty choices. I had the paella tres mares. While overall very good, the clams were some of the chewiest I've encountered. Lots of great dessert options so try to save room.

Extremely well prepared Tapas with a great wait staff and nice selection of predominantly Spanish wines. Great for a group that you want to have an interactive dining experience as you converse and enjoy multiple rounds of food and drink. I definitely recommend the group Paella, they do a good job with it. Don't be afraid to explore various wines, the Spanish wines may not be as familiar by name, but can be a beautiful accent to the food.

Great spot for a girl's night out or a date night. Tasty tappas and a nice drink selection. Wouldn't recommend taking kids. Parking is either on the street or in a garage, but not too bad.

The food is really good here, I forgot to take pictures. They have vegan options and items they can veganize. The red sangria was delicious.They are small plates so be prepared to get several different things and expect to spend at least $40 per person.

Not cheap, but the best night out with good friends. Everything we tried was excellent. Nice to share small plates of good food. Excellent wait staff, best service I've had anywhere.

Have loved this place for years. And if you have not been back they have more than doubled their size taking over the space next door. Love their small plates. They have a wide variety of tasty lamb and other dishes that are always perfect. And for your vegetarian friends, a great place to go.

This restaurant has a nice quiet atmosphere and an interesting upscale menu with lots of creative dishes. I look forward to exploring its many options. I thought the portions were quite small but enjoyed the price/portion value of the paella dishes. Great flavors, courteous wait staff, wonderful ambience, I would definitely go again.

There are so many places in the area that do a better job with tapas, but it's good quality food.

Best Spanish food (Spain) in the area. Try their Paella Tres Mares and their Chocolate Moose. You won’t regret it. 😛

Had lunch here. Awesome experience at Taberna! Wait staff was super nice, they keep our water replenished, answered questions happily, and made sure we were well take care of. The food was deliciously delicious. We had the bacon wrapped dates (OMG!!OMG!!), spicy garlic wings, Brussels sprouts (💥), and patatas aioli (👍). Definitely a spot I want to make a regular spot, their menu is large and the prices are wonderful. Great quality, great food, and great prices!

What a great surprise. We stopped in during a road trip to South Carolina. The food is top notch and creative, the staff is excellent. I thought we were in NYC eating at a highly recommended restaurant. Yes, it was that pleasant and tastefull.

Great ambiance for small groups to do shared apps.I've been here twice and sampled at least half of the menu with my group and haven't been disappointed in a single dish.The staff are very friendly as well and seem to have mastered the art of being distant enough not to interfere with great conversation, but also present enough that nobody's wine glass stayed empty unless they wanted it to.

Great food at a reasonable price - mostly Spanish food. Nice wine selection, and some good beers and ciders on tap as well. Walking distance to DPAC. Friendly service.

Very good place for sharing small plates, but doesnt fill you up. I ended up ordering dinner at a restaurant nearby.
