    once is enough

    The staff seemed phony and absolutely not helpful. The portions were tiny and the food was not good. After eating 6 different dishes I still left hungry. It wasn't unique it was one big mish mash of boring bland experimental dishes. Will never return! Nor should You

    Best Spanish food around!

    Everything was amazing! Ordered almost everything from the menu and had no complaints. Service was fast and servers were able to answer every question we had about the menu. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    Every single dish was absolutely delicious. Don't be afraid to try any of it, some things sounds a bit weird but they flavors all mesh together perfectly. Not cheap -- be prepared for a heafty bill at the end but its a nicer restaurant for the neighborhood, good for special occasions. Another huge plus - a delightful wait staff. From the hostess to the bartenders, everyone was super nice and welcoming. Will definitely be going back.

    Great Addition to the Neighborhood

    I just got home from a great dinner at La Vara with my family. In four people, we got a variety of dishes to share, and we weren't disappointed by a single one. One of the diners is a vegetarian, and we found that there were plenty of options suitable to her tastes! The food was absolutely delicious, the service efficient and friendly, and overall it was a very positive experience. The space, which was very nicely renovated, was a bit noisy for my taste (we had trouble hearing each other/the waitress), but otherwise it is a comfortable dining room. Highlights of the meal included the crispy eggplant with honey, the fried artichokes with aioli, and the sardines. We got the suckling pig special which was to die for, as well as a special vegetarian stuffed avocado squash with tomato sauce that was absolutely delicious. The lamb meatballs with yogurt sauce were flavorful and well spiced. This was an excellent meal and I am excited to go back and try more dishes in the future! La Vara is a welcome addition to the neighborhood.

    Excellent Spanish food in Cobble Hill

    Have been there twice and loved it both times. Great bartender and wait staff make you feel like family, and the wine list is fantastic. Tapas are delicious--though portions are a little small. Much needed and welcomed neighborhood addition now that José and La Mancha are gone.
