Tasca Restaurant-3rd/Crescent Heights

Went last week. It was GREAT! Had a braised short rib
with a butternut squash and marscapone filled agnolotti that was heavenly.Everything we
ordered was delicious. They still didn't have their wine/beer license, but a friend of
mine just went and said they received it. Ambience was simple with great lighting. Great
date place. Anyone been?

  1. I went last week and LOVED it!!! We too had the braised short rib (fantastic), a yummy tuna tartar w/black truffles and taro chips, and the BEST lamb I have had in a while--cooked to perfection. They had wine & sangira when I was there. Really friendly service...highly recommended!

    1. I just sent some friends last night...they LOVED it. It is a gem! One of those places you want to keep secret but let everyone know about. Would be PERFECT for Valentines Day.

      1. i was there a week ago, sat at the bar. really enjoyed the whole experience. the short rib was indeed fantastic. we did a flight of red wines, even though they only have a few on the menu since they're still stocking up. everyone was very nice, great atmosphere. hope if stays relatively quiet though.

        1. re: ddyouandme

          What's the corkage policy, now that they have their own wine list?

          1. re: djdebs

            didn't ask about corkage, but i imagine they'd be reasonable since they are only stocking a few wines at first. very nice people behind the bar.

        2. is this on the corner? that was last il soleil (which sucked)?
          price range?

            Not sure. The only Il Soleil that i know of is on Sunset Blvd. Tasca is on 3rd just west of
            Crescent Heights on the south side of the street. The menu is on their website
   I remember it being pretty reasonable. The small plates were
            from $6-$15 I think, and they were generous portions. Highly recommend.
