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

    Comodo is by far one of my favorite restaurants. You cannot miss the lamb slides, shrimp tacos and hibiscus mimosas for brunch. a great time to be had by all!

    The title pretty much says it all. For a small place, we had a difficult time getting the attention of wait staff. It's extremely noisy, and while the food was terrific, for the most part, I don't think its quality out-weighs the negative part of the experience.

    There seré 3 persons when we arrived at 6:30 pm but the host was busy on the phone and the waiter was in the kitchen so we waited What mighty only be 3 minutos but It seemed like a long time given that they would not even ríase their eyes to look at us. The new waited for the menú and waited for a glass of wine even though no moré people arrived. The host and the waiter were busy all evening. The ceviche was saggy propably old, the código was rough and the arepas were muggy. The prices very high particularly the wine prices. For 12 dólares they give Youtube 2 ounces.

    Comodo had a great atmosphere and impeccable service. Our server was attentive, fun and extremely helpful. We split three appetizers and a main dish which was a good way to try a variety of their food. The octopus was incredible! I was a little disappointed in the bolognese (nothing wrong, just nothing special), but I would definitely recommend the foods that they've been more adventurous with. There was also a large party there for a birthday which looked amazing! The restaurant let them bring their own flowers etc to cater to their party - so adorable!

    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 .

    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.
