    To start the night I called 3 times to see if I could move my reservation 30 minutes later. Spoke with 2 girls that told me that they were going to have the manager call me shortly but I am still waiting for the call ( several days later). We got there and we ordered our food which took a bit of time to get ready (mind that therr were only 2 tables with people and they were eating already. We got our food and I ordered more bread. Bread came back when I was almost done with my food. I understand when there are a lot of tables and one waitress. This was not the case. Once we were done we were asked to move as they were moving our table out of the way for dance floor space.

    We went to 3 Vinos brunch because we wanted to check out seating for a band we wanted to see in a week or so. We were really surprised with the quality and flavors of all the dishes available. Roast beef at the carving station and an omelet bar too. Really friendly staff that kept our champagne glasses full. To top it off a great guitar band took the stage to take things over the top. Got to go back again.

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    Visited restaurant hoping to find good Cuban cuisine and Salsa music. We were highly disappointed in the food, but were pleased with the live band and music they were playing. Being Cuban, I do not recommend this place if you're seeking to experience the true Cuban flavor and cuisine. It's unfortunate, but everyone in our party were highly disappointed in the taste of the food and the spicy/hot flavor in the Ropa Vieja and excessive amount of Mojo on Steak and Pork. As for the place itself, the live band was great and the evening crowd picked up around 8:30pm. The crowd seemed decent and the music very good. Great place for drinks and dancing, but not for restaurant dining.

    The entire place smelled really bad which made it hard to want to order food. We ordered drinks and they were absolutely horrible. Their sangria was nothing more than fruit punch on ice and their version of a piña colada was pineapple juice on ice. Our intention was to have dinner but the drinks were so bad we asked for the bill and decided to eat and drink real sangria at a great bistro two blocks down. Will never return and will not recommend this place to anyone.

  • Birthday Celebration
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/2/2014
    3 Vinos is a great place to celebrate a special occasion. We celebrated a birthday and they where great about taking and changing the reservation a few times. The food was very good and the service provided to us by the waitress was excellent however the table they use for the amount of people in our party was to small but the food and service made up for it. The live entertainment and music was great during dinner and then once the club got started it was non stop dancing witha DJ that provided great music all night long. The only complaint I have regarding this establishment is that they need to turn on the air conditioning. So many people including myself where so hot because A/C would only stay on part time. Management fix this please.

    Dined on 7/25/2014
    Very loud, wine was poor, and the server would not recommend the seafood. Should not have been surprised with the poor quality of the ceviche. The chicken wasn't bad, but we had to leave to actually be able to hear one another. The music was decent, but WAY too loud to have any semblance of a conversation.

    This is the second time that we have brunch at 3vinos. We attended a fathers day celebration. For the most part everything was good. Their brunch buffet was good but seems a little limited on the food. When we arrived we were seated then waited for some time before we got up to help ourselves. Our server never came to introduce themselves nor did they give us instructions on when we can get up to get our food. I think that the restaurant was not ready for the guests because they were still busy putting napkins out etc...Overall it was fine. I'd go there again.

    I made reservations for Father's Day and they didn't take time to look at the request in the reservation, I always request to sit at the end of the bar so the champagne can keep flowing but that didn't happen I was greatly disappointed I usually leave a generous tip needless to say that didn't happen the service was lousy I had to remove my used plates from my table myself a couple of times the omelette chef is always excellent I tipped him and I tip the band also. I do not think I will be returning even though I live in the neighborhood

    A group of 4 of us went on a Sunday night to celebrate my husband's birthday and it was fantastic. I made reservations for dinner and was seated immediately after arriving. The staff was curteous and accommodating. We were able to choose where we sat. The server came over with smile and graciously catered to our needs the entire time. The food was soooo good. The band was outstanding and the DJ was fantastic. Although we live in San Fernando Valley, we will definitely be going back

    We were there for brunch and as you come in, you hear the live music (Gypsy Kings'), and it makes you happy. But then you wait (even with reservation), a good 10 minutes. Buffet was OK, not great for Cuban/Latin food but the omelet station was wonderful including the chef (the only smiley, attentive person in the place). I will NOT be rushing back any time soon.

    Good food that must be served by persons that are trained to a certain degree to provide service. Unfortunately , our server knew little of the basics for providing service; he just wanted to push consumption. he was unaware of the "happy hour" offerings, and by the time he found out the specifics of the HHS, he informed us the HHS was over, and our requests did not qualify. Coco Palm restaurant has same food and much better service and ambience.

    THIS PLACE IS DIRTY, DARK AND SMELLS BAD. FOR SUNDAY BRUNCH YOU SIT WITH OTHERS, NO PRIVACY. THE POLICE WAS THERE DUE TO SOME GUYS FIGHTING, PER THE OFFICER, THEY ARE ALWAYS THERE BREAKING UP SOME BAR FIGHT. NOT FAMILY ORIENTED AT ALL, NOT EVEN FOR SUNDAY BRUNCH. BAR IS RIGHT AT FRONT OF ROOM, SEATING FOR BRUNCH IS ON BOTH SIDES OPPOSITE DIVIDED BY A BIG UGLY BAR. I WONT RECOMMEND TO ANYONE, VERY LOUD MUSIC, MAKING IT DIFFICULT FOR CONVERSATION. IF YOU WANT A BRUNCH, JUST GO TEN MINUTES AWAY TO POMONA MINING CO. AND AVOID THIS NASTY, SMELLY, UGLY PLACE.

    I saw the reviews for this restaraunt online and since it was close to where we live, I thought we'd give it a try for our anniversery this past Friday. Thinking it'd be a rather chic place to go for dinner but when we got there at 6, the place was empty. The menu was incomplete but the waiter was able to get me a Rib-Eye which was not on the menu. My wife's T-Bone tasted like someone dropped a salt shaker on it. My French Fries we're just warm and very limp and they had the odasity to smother them in the mushroom gravy that the steak came with without asking me if I liked it that way. When I asked for another drink, the waiter took my previous one, which was half full. The waiter was very unattentive as I had to find him several time

    I made reservations and was celebrating my birthday, I arrived and checked with the hostess and I was very disappointed that the hostess asked us to sit and wait at the bar until the rest of my party arrived. Once we sat at the bar we ordered drinks the bartender was prompt and polite. I then went back to the hostess to ask if we could order food and sit down at a table she said that she needed to get a table ready and had me wait. Once we sat down we only had one visit from the lady who provided our table with bread and we never saw her again. The food or drink order was never placed because no one came back to us. My party and I decided to leave. I was very disappointed and my birthday night did not turn out as planned.

    I liked this place and the live music but we had a reservation at 11am and the restauraunt was far from ready to begin service, musicians were not set up until after 12 noon. I thought the hostess was friendly and helpful, she did everything. Thank goodness she was there! The person making omelettes was not the friendliest guy, not very efficient, not prepared and forgettful. I enjoyed the french toast. Mamosa lacked champagne and was served a little warm for my liking.

    Visiting from AZ this was my first time at 3 Vinos. This is a classy place so don't expect it to be reasonably priced. It was my first time tasting Cuban food and it was utterly delicious! After enjoying our dinner my sisters and I then stayed to dance. The music was great starting with salsa then top 40's. It did get over crowded and super hot, almost unbearable! With the bar having two sides, for more room they really need to extend the dance floor to the other side as well so that people don't dance on top of one another. We literally were stepping on top of one anothers feet, too crowded and no room to freely dance and extend your arms. John Trovolta would not have been able to do his moves :-( Over all we still had a blast!!!!

    While the food was slightly below Coco Palms restaurant, their customer service was extremely poor.

We will never recommend it nor EVER return.
