La Parada continuously serves innovative and mouthwatering dishes with a Spanish influence.
The restaurant has a mix of classy and vintage vibes.
Came here for my friend’s birthday celebration, the biggest mistake ever. We had made a reservation for 7 pm but when we arrived there wasn’t a table available for us. We waited over 40 minutes for a table, and even though we had booked, people who came after us got tables before us even. The table we got was so small that it didn’t accommodate all of us. We had to personally hunt down chairs in the restaurant and this was just a horrible experience. I still don’t know to this day why we just didn’t leave at that point, as it only got worse.
The waiters were basically avoiding us as they tried so hard in making sure not to make eye contact with us. I honestly thought maybe it was just us that did they think we could not afford to be there or what but after checking online for other reviews I’ve concluded they just have bad service.
I had spoken to the floor manager that evening about the service but instead of fixing it she just disappeared for the rest of the evening. We ordered drinks that never arrived and we waited over 20 minutes before re-ordering with a different waiter. The music was really loud as well, we struggled to hear each other at the table. The only positive thing was the food which was really delicious and affordable.
