Drove 45 minutes through traffic for some Mediterranean food and was very disappointed to find out the restaurant was closed. Have been to Ibiza and Mallorca restaurants and was looking for another Mediterranean restaurant to enjoy.

Over priced for the wine selection and the quality of the food. The restaurant was very cold both temperature and the decor. The bread was awful! We had the warm appetizer of spicy calamari. It wasn't that spicy. Taste was average. Then we made the mistake of ordering the paella. Below average but at $28 it was steep!

The food was ok but the service was terrible and incredibly unprofessional. The wait staff jumped into our conversation on several occasions because they were eavesdropping and decided to interject themselves into our meal. The bar was out of so many things that a number of drink selections were unavailable. The menus were old pieces of executive sized paper that had been edited with a sharpie to remove the dishes that were No longer available (probably about five selections). Also, although I'm not opposed to a friendly staff, these people didn't know the menu, shared WAY too much about themselves for strangers and were treating what could be a quaint little bistro into a nightclub atmosphere by yelling out trivia questions in exchange for shots from the bar. Again very unprofessional. I doubt we'll return.

Food was excellent. They may need to have more than the one server (who was very sweet) but they might not have enough people for a big crowd.

We had a wonderful experience and hope to visit again. The bread and dipping sauce were delicious as were the food and beverages we ordered. The atmosphere is a little more casual than I had envisioned, but still nice - lots of bright warm colors and fun Spanish music playing in the background. I also appreciated that it was low enough that it was easy to visit over the volume.

There were gnats flying all around our table from the time we sat down to finish. The restroom was unisex and was inadequate.

From Our Editors

Owner and chef Omar Mediouni imbues La Casa Tapas and Wine Bar's menu of traditional Spanish and Moroccan small plates and entrees with local ingredients and an appetite for culinary fusion that, according to Pittsburgh City Paper, "combines sophistication and comfort, authenticity and simplicity." Flagpole-addicted tongues warm up with a choice of 16 hot tapas, including the chorizo catalan's spicy sautéed sausage and spinach in a red-wine reduction ($10), and tomatoes, sweet pepper, and eggplant form the base of a duo of Moroccan dips ($8 each). Larger entrees ($16–$28) sneak garbanzo beans, chicken, lamb, and eggplant into piles of couscous or saffron paella rice like parents tucking Easter eggs into an egg carton.

Nestled within a brick house along a neighborhood street in Shadyside, La Casa Tapas and Wine Bar greets springtime by opening its patio to warm breezes and showers of cupid arrows. Inside, a hanging Spanish guitar, lanterns lit by candles, and the wide grin of a bright red hearth contribute to a cozy, eclectic spirit.
