A word from Comodo
“Comodo is about a personal love story with a region and its flavors but keeping it true to the environment where it is found. It is a menu very personal to who I am-an autobiography written in food. This food is what happens when you take a Colombian-Spanish-Mexican-Brazilian-American that has adapted to New York” explains Felipe Donnelly, who will oversee the kitchen. For parties larger than six, Comodo offers our family style menu, which consists of the entire menu shared, for sixty dollars per person. If you would like this menu please indicate in your notes. Comodo is a restaurant, inspired by Latin American influences but diners won’t find tacos or mole on the menu. Rather, the cuisine uses the flavors and the technique but varies from the traditional menu. It will serve Latin food seen through the prism of current New York dining trends. The décor of the 45 seat restaurant will convey the feeling of dining at home with a wooden communal table to obs

    My friend and I went to Comodo for dinner on Friday night. Hostess, waitress and bar tender were very nice and spontaneous. The food and drink menu was very interesting, with options from Mexico, Spain and Brazil. We had ceviche and sea bass. All very fresh and with right amount of spices, just delicious. The ambiance had the right level of intimacy for friends getting together or couples on romantic dinner. I'll certainly come back .

    a bit noisy. Main dish (entree) was great. Dessert was not so good. The candles and the lack of lighting make this restaurant a nice place for a romantic diner. Excellent service including good advice on the wine list.

    My husband and I went to Comodo for date night and it could not have been more perfect. The relaxed ambiance was complimented perfectly by the attentive wait staff (our water glass was never empty). The appetizers all looked so delicious that we decided to skip an entree (we will come back to try them) and ordered every appetizer on the menu. Each one was better than the next! I recommend the cauliflower gratin and the arepas. The chef greeted guests around the restaurant which is a gesture I always appreciate.

    Delicious food. I had a hard time choosing because I wanted to try everything on the menu. Happy I brought my foodie friends here. The cocktails were great, too (especially with brunch -- none of them overpowered the food). The only negative was that it was quite hot that day, and they don't have A/C, only ceiling fans.

    Went for dinner with a few friends and we all had a great evening of very good and unique food, conversation, and very good feeling. This is a unique combination and while it doesn't exactly feel like home, both the staff and the atmosphere are warm and welcoming. A good change from the high-end places. Highly recommended.

    Comodo never disappoints. The service is lovely, attentive and unobtrusive. The drinks are strong and tasty. I started of with a La Mula while waiting for my friend and we switched to the pitcher of white sangria. Both were tasty. I enjoyed my steak salad with fried egg. My friend had their quinoa cakes which is their decidedly sweeter take on eggs benedict. Dessert was a lovely almond butter cookie. We left happily stuffed and planning our way back to the spot again for another brunch.

    Not the usual brunch menu, but quite tasty and surprising. I had the Warm brussels sprouts Caesar salad topped with a poached egg, which was very flavorful. Although the dishes were a little on the small size there was still a sufficient amount. The bread - PAO DE QUEIJO BASKET WITH TOMATILLO JAM - was quite delicious. I would definitely order that again. All in all a delightful experience.

    This was our second time at Comodo and the quality was as high as the first time. The ajiaco had subtle and wonderful flavors. The ceviche tasted as good as anything we have had visiting Lima. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, which made a big difference on a rainy Friday night.

    Comodo was a pleasant surprise ! The menu is limited but seasonal and innovative. I had the quinoa corn cakes with poached eggs - delicious! The cakes were sweet and slight crispy on the outside. My boyfriend had the pork belly nachos and, while I would never had picked it, I must say it was absolutely wonderful: the pork melted in your mouth while the nachos brought some great crisp to the dish. Service-wise, although the restaurant was not full, our waitress was quickly overwhelmed and didn't really check on us. Don't let that bother you, the place is a great find and definitely worth trying.

    After learning about the history of the owner and chef and enjoying a fabulous lunch with a loved one, all my expectations were wonderfully rewarded. A cozy and delightful little place that shows how food plays a vital part of how we express our love and care for one another. We were welcomed and served by gracious and caring staff who delivered us scrumptious and luscious culinary delights that tickled our souls. I highly recommend this charming find to anyone who seeks a break from the mundane. Thank you Comodo!

    Really cool place with great ambiance, creative cocktails and amazing food. Very popular on a Friday night. Made reservations for 10:45p but showed up early and they were able to seat us sooner. We ordered family style and loved everything we tried, especially the daily ceviche and pao de queijo sliders. Will definitely recommend and visit again on my next trip to NYC.

    Comodo, meaning easy, homey, cozy, is like being in Buenos Aires, without the air fare. Try the incredible brussels spout salad (and I hate brussels sprouts) and the steak, best since I was in Argentina. But really every single thing all four of us ordered was outstanding. Loved the young vibe, and our waitress, who actually is from BA, was super.

First, we were welcomed by a GREAT staff into their warm and cosy small space. then, we had a really nice waitress..and the food...OMG. One thing was better than the next. The food is exquisitely prepared..great combinations of flavors and just the right portions. Honestly, I didn't want to share because it was so good..When the entrees came you could hear a pin drop at our previously loud table and again no sharing..and the desserts well they were incredible too...try the coconut cake..Yummmm.. Definitely will dine at Comodo again!!!

    The food and the atmosphere was amazing. We showed up a few minutes before our reservation (and before the kitchen was officially open) and they were so welcoming and sweet. We were seated and given our water. They even apologized about not being quite ready yet, even though it was our fault for coming in early to get out of the cold!! Once we did order, the fun started. We had the shrimp tacos as an appetizer. They were amazing and the perfect way to start the meal. The main courses were just as rich. We left feeling very full, but not before finishing the complimentary hot chocolate. I would highly recommend Comodo for brunch. The cozy little spot is the perfect place to catch up with your friends and enjoy some serious food.

    Extremely disappointing dining experience from start to finish. Appetizers and entrees were completely overcooked and lacking any flavor except a universal, low-grade spice that was applied to all dishes. We sent the bread pudding back, because it was so horrendous we couldn't eat it. To add insult to injury, the restaurant had only one server (who also served as a bus person) working the entire restaurant (and it was full)! What a disappointment. Beautiful space that deserves a much higher quality of food and service. Never again.

    On a cold night we made our way to Comodo. Walking through the door, we had an immediate feeling of comfort. A quick scan of the room revealed couples and groups of people enjoying their food and drink. We could tell this would be a good night. To start the night off, we ordered a bottle of reasonably priced red wine. We shared a few appetizers and an entree. Our server ensured that the food was appropriately spread out. Each dish (ceviche, brussel sprout caesar salad, roasted cauliflower, grilled octopus and pork shoulder) was delicious and eye pleasing. It was indeed a night filled with comfort, good food and drink.
