What more can be said? The only disappointment was the dessert selection. But you'll be too full from all the great food to really let that bring things down.

La Paella is probably the only place in L.A. where you can get authentic Spanish tapas. I especially love the sauteed mushrooms, grilled shrimp, and clams in white wine sauce. The restaurant is cozy and romantic, and the owner is always friendly. Great place for a date and also good for groups.

I went here a few years back. We were going to go to the Ivy nearby on a Friday night- however, we decided to go here since it was a little hole in the wall, literally. We lived in Spain for a few months and are part Spanish so I was anxious to try some authentic Spanish food in LA- unlike a few other restaurants who say serve Spanish but its not really Spanish. Best tapas- the tortilla espanola, jamon serrano tasted just like in Spain. Best Part: REAL SPANISH BEER. They had Alhambra, but not Mahou which was a bummer- Mahou is the best beer in the world : ) Definitely will go there again and highly recommended. The owner was there and was super nice to us, maybe because we spoke Spanish. It was pretty busy but the service was fast and the ambience was just like being in Madrid again.

I don't think that Mr. foodcritic711 has been at LA Paella at all, he or she only want to criticize that place. Anybody that has been at LA Paella knows that this guy is not talking about the same place or he/she is lying. Just reading the two first sentences it's a prove that he has never been there because it's obvious that it's not true. Parking has never been a problem and the space between tables is more than we are use to see in the majority of restaurants, at least you don't have to listen the conversation of others. The food is excelent ,the service fantastic and the owner is the best host in town

The place was horrible. There's barely any room to move around (very tight quarters). It was very hard to find parking. The portions are very small, the dishes are nothing special, and I still was hungry after leaving the place. Owner and waiters kept on coming by and trying to sell wine. The waiter kept on mooching for a bigger tip after 15% was given. Stay away from this place. It's a waste of time, money, and food.

I went to La Palle for a first date. I was so touched by the ambiance of this place. It was so cozy and heartwarm felt. As my date would describe it to me, it was like stepping into your grandmother's home. It was exactely like that. It was so dreamy and the setting was very intimate and romantic. The ambiance was quiet. Food..FANTASTIC. Highly recommended. Every single thing on that menu is to die for. And what is La Paelle known for....Paella. It was perfectly cooked. Tastes just combined musically in your mouth lol. I have been to Spain and this Paella was great or can even be classified as even better than the Paella that I tried in Europe. Recommend it over and over and over again. Owner greeted us, like we have been going there for years. The staff was attentitive but never aggressive.

We were having a dinner party for 12 on 1/26/08 and Paella went great with the theme. We've passed by La Paella a million times thinking, I would like to try that place. After checking citysearch and seeing it had 5 stars we thought it would be the place to go. However we wanted to check it out ourselves before so we went down to grab dinner on a Saturday night. Not recommended without reservations. There was an 1hr an a half wait. So for the party we just decided to chance it. It was the right decision. My roommate was able to pick the Paella up in a pan it stayed warm for an hour and the presentation of the food to our friends was awesome. It was a bit of a chore to convience them to let us take the pan but well worth it. Our friends loved it. The test was the taste. It was Delicious! We had the seafood Paella and even those that didn't like seafood ate the Paella. It was around $20 per person and it was well worth it. We were able to impress all of our friends and that was worth it.

Went there today to treat out my boyfriends older sister and her fiance...it was a lovely dinner. Be aware that they do use a lot of garlic in their dishes..but about 4-5 tapas and a paella plate for 2 was enough food to feed a party of 4. Great food, fast service...I would go back there. Try dipping the bread in the sauces from the tapa plates..mmMmmM

I was amazed by everything! Quality of food is awesome, service is superior, atmosphere is very pleasant.
And - as far as quality of food - I am VERY pleased with the freshness, tenderness, and very good quality (all natural products!)
So, La Paella - is one of the best restaurants I've ever visited!

I loved this restaurant for a few reasons. i love that is small and intimate, yet very elegant. The inside reminds me of an old spanish lady's house in spain. The service was A+ .....My partner and i ordered a pitcher of sangria and our server was there to refil our glasses for us with perfect timing!!! i love that. The food was amazing. We got the patatas which are spicy potatoes and the vegetarian paella, both werevery delicious. I can't wait to go back!

Being a foodie and having lived in Barcelona and Sevilla I was a bit skeptical of what I might find at a "Spanish" restaurant in Los Angeles, but I am beyond happy that I went to find out. From the moment I walked in I felt as though I was walking into a restaurant back in Spain. Everything I tasted was so true to how it would have tasted and been served in Espa?ya I was delighted. I loved the patatas bravas (my absolute favorite), the gambas a la plancha, the manchengo cheese, the tortilla espa?ola and the crema catalana (which no other restaurant in Los Angeles that I know of serves) was divine!!! I didn't get to taste the paella, but will when I return, because I will be back as often as possible. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

I took a girlfriend of mine to this restaurant for her birthday. It was a our first time there, and they surpassed anything that I could possibly imagine. Everything from the tapas, the paella, and the sangria, was wonderful. The food had so much flavor, and the service was impeccable. I can't wait to go this restaurant again.

Great place to take friends or for a romantic date. Great service, great food, and great ambience. My husband had the rice made with squid ink, he said it was absolutely delicious. I had the paella with the seafood mixture, very tasty. It was something different for me, I am not Spanish, but I like to try food from other cultures. A must to try when in LA!

Great, authentic tapas, friendly service, cozy restaurant - an amazing find in LA. My only complaint is that the sangrias are only so-so. Get a bottle of rioja instead...

La Paella is the one true SPANISH restaurant in Los Angeles. I instantly felt like I was in a Spanish taverna when I set foot in this place the first time. Great date spot due to its intamacy, soft lights and candles. The paella Valenciana is a must. You cam make a meal out of the long list of tapas as well. The owner, Pascual is almost always there and is very attentive to what is going on in his restaurant. He is actually from Valencia (Spain, not Magic Mountain) so you know the dishes are authentic.

Cons: n/a, n/a, n/a

The food is not good. The prices are unrealistic. That's it.
Is the kind of food you would find in a taberna or small unexpensive cafeteria in Spain.
The service is bad and the place is not clean.
I would not recomend it.

My friends and I checked out this delicate Spanish restaurant after reading reviews about it. We didn't make a reservation, but the owner still managed to give us a table without waiting for a long time. They have a long list of tapas, both hot and cold, steam mussels, mushrooms, calamari, Tortillla Espanola, etc... The Paella Marinera was really tasty~ Service was excellent, the owner came over and asked how was the dishes, the server was really helpful in recommending their must have dishes, and kept us enjoyed the whole course of our meal. Finally we ordered desserts from their wide selection, a flan and a creme burle, which were both really delicious and suprisingly, they're not very sweet, which is good after having so much good food~

Having driven past La Paella several times, we finally decided to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised by the very friendly service, authentic Spanish tapas and cozy atmosphere. It almost feels like you're at a relative's house. The Spanish wine was excellent as well. In regards to the food, we really liked the chorizo, scallops with oil & garlic and the manchego cheese dish. The paella looked really good too, but we were too full to go on!

The reviews already posted on this place must have been written by the owner. We found the food to be horrid, bland, greasy and over-priced. There were a total of eight tiny krills and six gritty clams and a handful of chopped up squid bits in our serving of paella for Four. The rice was burnt and soggy at the same time-a truly mind boggling feat! The $8 Ceasar salad consisted of pieces of wilted lettuce leaves drawned in a greasy and oddly lumpy dressing that was devoid of ANY taste. The octopus tapa was leathery and bland. The chorizo tapa tasted like Oscar Mayer wiener. The Serrano ham tapa had the taste and smell of some taxidermist's handywork. All in all, the swill we were served and paid $300 for last night bore no resemblance to the Spanish food we had while living in Spain.

Restaurant reminds me of an old spanish villa ilt by candlelight. It'd be good for couples or small group of friends. Very good selection of of both hot and cold tapas (reasonably priced). Highly recommend getting the cold seafood salad "ceviche" style, it's very refreshing and perfectly seasoned. Had doubts about the bland looking paella, but once I tasted it, I completely changed my mind. It was full of flavor! The only things I don't like are that you have to order at least 2 orders of paella, and the prices are a little steep for what you get. Not impressed by the desserts, I would recommend that you get them elsewhere. I will defintely go back, and recommend this place to all my friends, but I think I'll be skipping dessert next time.

After having lived in Spain for 15 years, I consider myself a real Spanish food lover and La Paella is the only authentic Spanish restaurant here in Los Angeles. The food and service are excellent. Pasqual, the owner makes sure everybody in the restaurant is enjoying themselves and makes you feel at home in his restaurant. The paellas are all good, as are the tapas. The gazpacho is sheer perfection! This restaurant is definitely an authentic piece of Spain in Los Angeles. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

Nice romantic date kind of place. Make reservations. Dont be stupid like me. I dug their bread and garlic mayo, but maybe because I was starving from waiting. Their paella was pretty good, though Ive had better tapas.

A friend of mine found this tiny restaurant for a girls night out. We all thought it would be a perfect date restaurant, and everyone in the party LOVED the restaurant. It's very small, so if you don't have reservations, it might be tricky. But the food is great, and the staff were wonderful. I've added it to my list of great restaurants in LA.

I have been patronizing this restaurant for over four years now and have never had a bad experience. The setting is intimate and romantic, so I can see how it might've been difficult for the previous reviewer to attempt to make a reservation for such a large party. Having said that, once you are seated, the service is excellent. The staff is friendly and is always readily available without being overbearing. The food is incredibly flavorful and is probably one of the most authentic in the LA area. A must try is the sangria! It's delicious!

We arrived about ten minutes early for our 8:30 reservation. We were still seated promptly at a cozy candlelit table for two. Around us we noted a couple of large families who seemed to be enjoying the excellent sangria and tapas. Despite the proximity to two large (ten or more) parties, our service was always prompt and friendly. We ordered a pitcher of sangria (a necessity), a few tapas and the paella valenciana. Our favorite tapas were the mushrooms and chorizo. When the paella arrived it was a meal by itself. Que sabor!

From among the dessert choices of rice pudding, creme brulee, chocolate mousse, et al., we chose the carrot cake. Delicious!

With the wonderfully attentive Spanish staff, the charming candlelit atmosphere and delicous tapas, you can't go wrong. We can't wait to go back and take our own large group. Highly recommended!

Sauteed mushrooms, cubed manchego, squid rings, steamed mussels, artichoke hearts, meatballs, snails, and grilled chorizo. The list of tapas is so long and so good that you may never reach the main course. The owner comes by to chat and refill your wine glass. The lights dim, and the talk lingers. But don't forget to try the paella valenciana.
