    The dinner experience at Cafe Don Jose was very much enjoyed. Our food was served hot, salad and bread were great, the Cream Brule was wonderful. We were lucky to see the Flamingo dance and hear the live music that enhanced our dinner time. Service was a bit slow but the waiters gave their best to meet the needs of all the guest in the room. My first visit to Don Jose was in the seventies, as a long time customer I look forward to continued excellent food and fun.

    We had a wonderful time. The service was excellent, the food was great and the entertainment was wonderful. The perfect place for a romantic evening for two or a fun time for groups.

    This is a great place to get some good Spanish food. The atmosphere is nice, the restaurant has a nice ambiance and very cool design. The Sangria there is very good. The prices are a little high, so I would only come here for special occasions.
