Diner Reviews
  • "Very hard to find with no sign outside. Parking sucks and valet is really expensive. However, the HH prices were great!"

  • "Food and service was great but I made a reservation for 730 and didn't get seated until 8."

  • "I have dined at Chino Latino many times and it has been a great experience almost every time. The food is tasty, the portions are pretty large, and you definitely get your money's worth. The service was fantastic, our server was there when we needed her but wasn't overbearing. The only small complaint we would have is that it was quite noisy and we could barely hear each other speak. It certainly could have been where we were seated, though. Overall, I would definitely recommend Chino and I will certainly be dining there again. (We would also highly recommend the sushi, it was fresh and fantastic.)"

  • "Pretty hip setting but not a place to go for a quiet romantic meal. Great service and good food. Worth checking out."

  • "I love the menu customization. Anniversaries and birthdays are that much better."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "The food was overly salted that we could not finish and had to take home. Other than that great service and place to just chat and snack. I wouldn't personally order the big dishes next time if I do come back."

  • "I like going to Chino now and then. Food is almost always very good to great. Service is good. My latest vist the service was great. The only negative for me is that I think the prices are high for the portions. Drinks are on the spendy side too. But I will still go back now and then."

  • "We used OpenTable to secure a reservation at Chino Latino last Friday. This was fast, convenient and easy. Parking and traffic was a bit of a problem, but after some effort, we found a spot in the ramp by Famous Dave's. When we arrived at the restaurant, despite it being packed and very busy, we were shown right to our table. The scene was active and energetic....might be a bit too noisy and busy for some people, but we loved it! We definitely felt that this was the "place to be". This was my first visit to Chino Latino, although I have heard friends rave about it many times. The menu is a creative collection of so many choices from so many different food genres! Food was delicious. Drinks good. Highly recommend this place!"

  • "We had awful service and we were very disappointed in how the poor service was handled. We had reservations at 8 and weren't waited on until a half an hour into our reservation. We then continued to order appetizers and didn't receive our drink order until after our food was all served and gone. After the appetizer we decided to not stay for an entree and went elsewhere. It was my friends 21st birthday, what a disappointing birthday dinner."

  • "Happened to have ordered 3 different dishes,... all of them were below average in terms of taste. Worst Pad Thai i ever had!!"

  • "Great happy hour & is like the rotating menu. Service was ok but the people watching makes up for that."

  • "Service was so poor that I don't even recall my waitresses name :/"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "They can't decide who they are. Asian, Mexican or Indian? Floor was sooooo sticky and the entire place was just dirty."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We had a reservation but they didn't seat us right away. It appeared they seated others first. I had to ask. They were very busy and seated us in the bar. Hard to hear and service was slow, at first. It took awhile to get drinks/water. Once they noticed us, things got a bit better. It was still fun. Food is great, but not "foodie.""

  • "Overall, it was nice. Booth was very dark -we could not read menus and had to use cell's phone light. Menu is written with very small letters."

  • "The food was wonderful. Server was very attentave, food arrived mostly in a timely manner. Drinks were really good. It was great to be able to make reservations online and when we arrived our table was ready. We went for our daughters birthday and the menus even said "Happy Birthday" on the bottom of them, nice touch. Thanks for a great evening!"

  • "I brought a party of 12 to Chino Latino for my 30th birthday, and it was a great time! The servers were accommodating when we needed to move tables, the food was incredible, and the drinks were delicious. They even printed a birthday message for me on the menus they gave us, which was a nice touch."

  • "Chino Latino came highly recommended from a family member! Living 6 hours away in Canada, I would make the trip just to eat here again! Great food, service and ambiance! Delish!"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "We took our 5 year old here to celebrate. The waitress went out of her way to make my daughter feel special - dry ice in her mocktail and extra drink charms. Normally food is great - this night we ordered the pu-pu platter. Not my favorite. We will be back but will order one of our other standby favorites."

  • "We enjoyed the large table for our group. Ambiance was fun. Had a bit of a hard time understanding how to order but the staff helped explain it and it worked out. No one left hungry."

    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "I came here for my birthday to celebrate with friends and it was just was I was looking for. I knew already, that the food wasn't the best I'd ever had, but I love the atmosphere and the wide variety of options to choose from. There were tons of bachelorette parties, ect, so it's nice to go somewhere where the group atmosphere is welcomed, not frowned upon! I'd go back for a similar event, but I wouldn't recommend it for a romantic date, unless you go during the week when it's perhaps a little quieter?"

  • "Unlike most places for late night dining, Chino Latino holds a pleasant late night ambience and actual good food. The service was excellent especially with a big group. Chino Latino was great in tending to all our needs by confirming our online reservation to making sure all guests were taken care of. Figuring out the bill wasn't a headache as it usually is with a big group at other places. Overall, fantastic! Definitely coming more often! "

  • "Chino Latino is an exceptional place to go. The big plates, you can share among 2-4 people. Or you can just order small plates and share with your table. Every single item in the menu is delicious. "

  • "been there lots of times... last time i'll go. food has gone down hill, so has service. too much money for the experience. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The food was tasty and the service very good, but the décor was blander than I expected from such a reputedly fun place. The noise level on a Saturday night at 6 p.m. was overwhelming; it was impossible to talk or hear in the main seating area, so the helpful server moved us to a back booth, which was quieter but plain and airless. We four shared two large dishes and it was plenty of food, though it was weird to only be given tiny plates. Cocktails were good but fairly expensive."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "This is an excellent place to go for a fun experience but the food is a bit lacking. The drinks are the main reason I think anyone should go to Chino Latino. They have amazing bartenders who really know their stuff!"

  • "far too loud...couldn't hear my friends across the table. Sake bomb was fun and delicious."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The 4 of us did our best to order a good assortment of dishes but kind of limited with a small group. We got plenty of food and found it OK. Have been there before with a larger group and found it more satisfying when trying more dishes. Our experience was that it was OK food at a high price point. "

  • "Chino is always a great place to go when you're celebrating a birthday or speciaftl event. From the unique variety on the menu to the little trinkets in the signature drink it's always a fun experience!"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "The food is global, enticing and the tastes never disappoint. You can play it safe with something as simple as fried rice (but trust me, it's unlike any you've experienced) or you can go completely global with Korean BBQ and Kimchee or many continents in between. Drinks are equally delightful."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "We were greeted with a ready table, spacious dining, and a helpful waiter. We had a nice variety of tasty menu items that we shared. No one went home hungry. We had a group of 10 and never felt rushed. Would go there again with a group. Thanks for helping make my daughter's graduation day special."

  • "I made a reservation and waited 30 minutes past my reservation, this was very frustrating. The manager did give my party free appetizers to make up for the extended wait. Overall the service was okay. I think the staff could be better trained to handle busy Friday nights."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Great vibe and very busy, but food and service did not suffer. Our server was attentive and knew the menu, and provided great recommendations. The food was inspired and very good, but next time we will try something a bit more adventurous. Drinks were amazing!!! Great spot."
