I went there for my birthday with a small group of friends and had an amazing time. The atmosphere was warm and quaint, the food was cooked perfectly, and the service was very quick. I would not hesitate to recommend Las Tablas to my friends and family.

Best part was B.Y.O.B..
Way over priced, bland, and so so service. We ordered 2 recommended dinners and neither was very special. My date and I ended up feeling ill the entire next day. We asked for our steaks medium and they came out like jerky. The inside door kept being left open and it was extremely drafty. I will not go back.

Picnic style seating provides casual atmosphere for enjoyable dining experience. Foods are good. Need to bring you own drinks. Go a little South down Lincoln for a convenience store. Of course, you need to eat meat - otherwise, this might not be for you.

For a place that calls itself a Columbian steakhouse, the steak dishes were actually very poor. The Churrasco (supposedly the house specialty) tasted and had the texture of a low grade breakfast steak. It is supposedly a NY strip steak that is butter-flied, but comes off as thin (1/4 inch thick?) and fatty, and has a peculiar bad meat taste. On the plus side though, the shrimp was incredible; the size, marinade, and grilled taste made these perhaps the best shrimp I have ever tasted. The chicken was also quite good, with a great marinade and grilled flavor. Our server was pleasant and accommodating when we sent our 1st steak back because it was well done (we ordered it medium rare). The prices were high; Churrasco was $17 and the chicken and shrimp combo was $18. I would go back here but definitely not for the steak dishes.

One of the best restaurants for the dollar in Chicago, especially since it is BYOB. My girlfriend, who is from Colombia, swears it is the most authentic in Chicago. Go here for a $40 meal for two and that will include 2 appetizers, steak, another entree, and dessert. I highly recommend it for any type of date/event/whatever. Great food, that isn't served by a waiter with their nose stuck in the air.

Wonderful festive atmosphere! Long wait on weekends, BUT the service is speedy once you get seated. Try the fruit drinks with milk -- makes for an incredible milk shake. Be daring and try a fruit you have never heard of! The steaks are wonderfully marinated. Definitely eat the steaks with the relish and salsa provided, as they compliment the spices in the meat. Oo! You cannot miss the empanadas. My Ecuadorian friend who went with me told me that empanadas are made differently in different countries/regions. This has to be favorite to date! The essense of the empanda, in my humble opinion, is in the pastry. Here, the pastry is not the typical flakey tasteless wrapping. Instead, the pastry has a wonderful, slightly chewy texture that really envelop your palette and give your teeth something to sink into!

Highly Recommned !!! Everything we had was absolutely fabulous. Everything had great flavor. The atmosphere and service were awesome. We were setaed right away and food is served quickly. The combination platter - matrimonios - is a good sampling. Coconut flan is a great desert to end dinner with. Have been there twice and will go again. I can't believe how great the food is at such a geat price. You can bring-your-own wine for a very minor BYOB fee (I think it was $3).
