    The food was very good but what impressed me most was the service. Our waiter was very attentive and informative. The smoke old fashioned is definitely up there as one of the best I’ve tried. Definitely will be coming back!

    Food was mediocre. The waiter was horrible! Failed to inform us of the house special’s, did not ask us how how the food or meals were nor bothered to ask if we wanted more cocktails! Only thing he was good for was handing me the bill. First and last I would visit this establishment.

    This is an amazing place right in the neighborhood. The food is excellent, and the service can't be beat. The restaurant is full of people enjoying a small dinner or a family gathering. Everyone is welcomed as part of the family. We definitely plan to return to be able to sample more of their delicious food and drink.

    We had New Year’s Eve dinner here. It was a very pleasant experience. We had a variety of apps- all very flavorful and spiced. It’s quite lovely here. They have an outside area covered by a tent fir expanded seating. Can’t wait to eat on the patio when the weather gets warm. Extensive menu for good and drinks. Will be back

    We’ve been here 5-6 times and by far the summer outdoor experience is best. Food and drinks remain good, but during the winter the inside is stuffed to the max! Last night it felt like a glorified dining hall vs. a nice Mediterranean restaurant. Particularly, they have a propensity to book large parties of families with kids of all ages. It tends to be super loud, crowded and we waited 45 minutes past our reservation time as it seems with these large parties they hold tables. We will wait till next year in the summer to go back.

    The food is always excellent. Service is friendly and attentive. The bare brick walls make it overly noisy so if you are with a group there is an effort to hear the conversation. The food is excellent. We've eaten inside a few times and on the patio a few times each time trying a different specialty cocktail. Don't have a fave yet guess I need to go back and try again. Did I mention the food was excellent?

    This is the third time I go to La Parra. Previously, the food was delicious & our servers were prompt. This time around the food wasn’t fresh & service was slow. The scallops & crab cake tasted very fishy. Our server didn’t check on us very often either. It was disappointing.

    One of my favorite restaurants in Berwyn,/Oak Park area! Wonderful food , great service. What would make it perfect is reducing the music level. I’ve gone there several times where me and my other dinner companions literally feel like we’re yelling at each other because the music is so loud.

    Very welcoming Great ambience Good food Entrees were very expensive. The waitress we had was terrible, maybe just having a bad day. Terrible attitude. Didn’t ever check up on us. Other waiters did the work for her. Owner was very nice and really wanted us to have a good time. Overall I’m glad I went, not sure if I’ll go back though

    La parra is full of energy, fun and great food. Even more common pasta dishes exceeded expectations. Rave reviews for lamb shank and chili relenos. Social complimentary lemon cello was festive. Smoked old fashioned was a hoot. Our only complaint was noise! We will be back!

    Great place to bring friends and family. It was their first time and everyone loved the food and service. It was a little hard to have a conversation with all the noise. Overall it’s a great hangout. I think the patio would be less noisy if that’s what you prefer. Overall I highly recommend this place. Drinks are delicious too!
