A friend of us recommended this place. We went to La Zarza last Friday.
The food was excelent (pato con moras!!!). The staff was very attentive. Decorated with earthy tones. Cozy space.
They have every ingredient to succeed.
Try their sangrias.
Every drink and dish we ordered was great.
The place was pretty busy even at 11 at night so it took a while to get our drinks, and I think they were a bit understaffed.
However, it was well worth the value and we'd definitely go back.
Great for a date!
Lovely place! very cozy.. (perfect for a date)!
.. i went to have dinner with my girlfriends, and we loved the food... appetizers are fantastic... empanadas, calamari and of course the sangria!!!
.. ill definitely come back soon!
i went with some friends to La Zarza on a wednesday night and we had a fantastic time!
Food was really good, we had chicken empanadas and calamari as appetizers. and then we ordered paella.. so good!
(the bread they used to serve before was a little bit better though)
service was very attentive and music was very relaxing..
We had a really great time there, the place is very romantic and cute. They have a big variety of tapas and appetizers to share. Sangria is flavorful and absolutely delicious. service was a little bit slow. but anyway i would recommend this place to everybody..

im surprised of some of the reviews form this place, wich i think is great and fun, having a dj while you are having dinner on a friday night? why not? also the sangria is one of the best i have ever tried.
paella is amazing and appetizers, well yes. some of them small but good enough for a complain.
i will be back for sure.
The food is great and so is the service. The waiters are friendly, with nice soft music. What else you can ask for?
The sangria is definitely the best i every tried!
Cons: The goat cheese croquets that I order as an appetizers was a little bit colder that i would be expected to be.
Overall great place! I definitely plan on coming back soon!
