Great experience – My husband and I ate at Vega Tapas for the first time last weekend. It was trully a wonderful experience. We ordered scallops and bbq shrimp that were to die for. The oyster ceasar salad is also a must. I suggest ordering the bigger sizes and sharing. Our bill was around 100$ but we ordered bottle of wine. Our server was excellent. We will be back.

Overpriced "tapas" – This place seems to be the closest thing New Orleans has to a tapas place. However, it's it extremely overpriced. The concept behind tapas is to have a variety of small, inexpensive plates that you share with your table. You're supposed to try a little bit of everything. And while the quality of food at Vega is pretty good and they certainly have the -size- of their tapas right, the price is ridiculous. My husband and I had dinner there yesterday and the bill came out to over $35 for 4 small and thin slicesof cheese plus 5 very thin slices of baguette, 5 small/medium shrimp and a chorizo that was about half the size of a bun length hot dog. I had ice water (not bottled) and my husband had a diet coke.

Vega could be a real tapas place, with more of the traditional tapas selections (patatas bravas, bocadillo, small beef skewers, etc.) and with a price list reduced by at least 50%. Charging $11 for -5- shrimp is too much. That's what Emiril's charges for -appetizers-. And they are bigger. And it's Emeril's.

This place is tapa-licious – This is one of New Orleans hidden treasures. I think the ambience is incredible at this place. There are banquettes with velvet pillows, candlelit tables and cool paintings on the walls. It's super chic, but unpretentious.

Vega is a great place for a date. Big martinis with good bleu cheese olives, awesome food and lots of different things to try. Bring a friend or four or five and get lots of things to share.

You might even get to see the chef. It's romantic and fun. I will definitely be back.
